We ordered Ruben egg rolls for appetizer. They were pretty good. My husband ordered the shrimp and grits and it was mediocre. Our last visit was much better. They had a different recipe for shrimp and grits (along with gumbo). This version is only ok. I had the Rueben sandwich. Delicious.

Well I made reservations and when we arrived the hostess said that's not really a reservation, only a call ahead? People were waiting behind us- I was embarrassed. I've used open table all over the US and never had an issue. She said they were full and acted like she was doing us a favor to sit us in a high top. We actually didn't stay.

We went for Sunday brunch and were pleasantly surprised by the food. Highly recommend the French toast - the cinnamon glaze was fantastic! I didn't even add butter or syrup (and I always do). Our server was super sweet and attentive - we found that to be true throughout Charleston. The only thing our group was not a fan of was the coffee.
Would definitely recommend!!

We appreciated the service and liked the environment and ambience of the restaurant. It’s a cute place, however, The food was just average at best. I had the special Burger and it was very plain but the fries were good. The turkey Reuben flavor was blah and not flavorful.

Very disappointed in the brunch menu. We used to come here all the time and really enjoyed the various brunch options but they clearly made some significant changes to the menu. There are now only a handful of options to choose from - standard breakfast plate, salmon omelette (?), French toast, corned beef hash, and pancakes. Corned beef hash was horrible. It was not chopped up like normal hash is and the plate came with only 3 potatoes.

Breakfast burrito, breakfast sandwich, chicken biscuit, biscuits and gravy etc are no longer on the menu. Would not come here for brunch again.

I feel like someone owes me money for having to dine here. My college student kids said Five Guys Burgers is 10 times better. Pretty bad when fast food beats you in food execution and taste.

This is a hamburger/French fry joint… you will pay $18-24 for burger and fry. So if that’s the specialty, do it right. Food wasn’t mserved hot, everything was served room temp. Cold fries. Burgers ordered “medium” were waaay overcooked and dry.... and served on stale dry buns. The rubbery burgers were difficult to eat, but we were starving. The execution of all 4 meals was terrible. Everything was over cooked and had been sitting long enough to lose all heat. The wait staff was exceptional. That’s the only reason I gave any stars at all.

The majority of the restaurant seating is in the back sunroom where there’s no noise control. It was pretty full when we left… We couldnt hear eachother. We gave up trying to talk and just wanted to exit.

Great little spot in downtown Charlestson. Near Hampton Park and spacious tables so that you are able to distance from the others in the restaurant. I have been twice and it has been very good both times.

I love going to RCC for happy hour or a quick dinner, but I wouldn’t recommend it for brunch. The food was mediocre. The service was slow, and the dining room had to be at least 80 degrees.
