If your looking for Great Sandwiches in Charleston, this is the place. I highly recommend any of their burgers, the BLT (Great bacon), or the Reuben, which my wife says is the best anywhere. Their fries are also very good. Great Local Brew beer menu too. This is our go-to place when ever we crave a good Burger or Reuben.

Made reservations to celebrate a birthday. And although we don’t expect much and it was written on reservation it wasn’t recognized. Ordered well drinks at happy hour and was told it was $4 and was charged $5 per drink (6 total drinks). Tried to order something off (4 person meal deal) of their online menu and was told they could not offer as they need to make as much as they can during this time (should update the online menu then). Overall not what we were hoping for and although we were returning customers in the past moving forward we have to find somewhere else that values our business.

We both had burgers that were really good; one turkey & one beef. Both were unique in their setup which made them memorable. The bartender and hostess were very accommodating when our party size went down and then back up again.

Cheese burger was fabulous. It even was served on a gluten free roll. French fries were crispy and salty like I like them.
Felt safe during COVID. Tables spaced way apart and servers masked. Noisy from nothing to absorb the sound and chairs were not comfortable though.

The food was great! Everyone at the table raved about their meals. We were concerned about indoor dining but they did a good job with the layout and we felt safe. Highly recommend and I will go back when I am back in Charleston.

Four retired guys went out to lunch while their wives were at book club. They came to Rutledge cab company on St Patrick’s Day, enjoyed amazing Ruebens, great brews, and came home to their wives happy. What’s not to like?

The food is different from last year :( fries are different and seemed frozen and menu is different. They use to have amazing cinnamon rolls but they are no longer offered. There were no specials for Sunday brunch offered. Good not great.

We had brunch; food was very good but candied bacon was not our favorite. For brunch we would have liked to have a regular bacon option. Otherwise we enjoyed our experience.

The food was good overall. My wife ordered the salmon salad with the salmon medium - it was a little under cooked. I had a burger and fries which were great. My wife had a cocktail which was great. A little disappointed that they have pared down their menu. The menu is now more typical pub/bar food with less unique options.

Food was average. First table we sat at was completely off balance and moved a good 2 inches one way or the other. Next table was by the kitchen which wasn’t very romantic for Valentine’s Day. I should have done more research as far as a romantic setting goes. The staff was absolutely amazing. Many compliments to our waiter that night.

Had a reservation for Valentine’s Day. They sat us in a door way and when we asked to move the area they had us was extremely loud. Food and drinks were fair but way to overpriced.
