I stopped into this place on recommendation. Great vibe and drinks. They have a great beer selection. We also tried the buffalo shrimp. It was off the charts. I would definitely recommend.

Neat, pub atmosphere. Had quite a few local beers to pick from as well as the more popular choices. The service was quick and attentive. Darts and TVs to keep you entertained.

Looking for a quick bite for lunch, you can't go wrong at The Griffin. I had the Cuban and she had the Griffin Club. Both were reasonably pri ed, filling and delicious

Went with friends and the atmosphere is fun, cozy and like you are in a pub in England. It was a great place to socialize, drink lots of beer and enjoy some snacks.

Really enjoyed our visit to Charleston's French Quarter and the waterfront. This Pub is very convenient, great food and reasonably priced considering the tourist trap we were in the middle of. Highly recommend this spot for a meal (we stopped for an early dinner).
