We had lunch, but were very disappointed in the food, very bland, no seasonings, bread was hard, not worth the money. Seating is at shared countertops/tables, odd layout and cramped. Service could have been better. Cannot recommend. Will not be going back.

My husband and I came here for lunch. What an adorable and quirky little place. I had the seafood soup with French cheese and baguette. It was delicious. My husband had a chickpea soup with lox on a baguette, also delicious. Definitely would recommend!

Great hidden treasure. Interesting eclectic restaurant with laid back feel. Everyone eats at a countertop seating as there are not individual tables. Lunch special included wine or beer and the sandwiches were great.

The lunch special (after 11am) is a great meal with drink included! I had the croq monseiur and a local draft, definitely a recommendation for one of your lunch spots on your next trip.

Prices are reasonable if you order the lunch special that comes with a glass of wine. Small place, poor acoustics, and relatively surly wait staff.

We took our bikes to explore this quaint town. Were told by friends to consider G&M as we are 1/2 French. Nice little spot to run in, grab lunch. Not very touristy (which is a big situation in Charleston). Simple menu, nice wine, great service...More

We have been eating here on and off since it opened in the 90's. In recent years there has been a noticeable decline. On the most recent visit the "warm" goat cheese came unheated and the soup was far from hot. The server did not...More

When in Charleston 'Fast & French' is a must do. My daughters both live in Charleston and this is their comfort place, their home away from home. We always go here for their extremely delicious coffee, (which Jennifer has shown me how to make at...More
