Very cute place to grab a bite to eat and have a drink. The inside of the pub is decorated with dollar bills signed by patrons. It was very interesting inside seeing that. Service was very good.

The Griffon is one of the reasons we keep returning to Charleston. Our go to is the nachos and chicken tenders- delicious. We love the atmosphere! We recommend it to everyone we know heading to Charleston!

Definitely a dive bar, but all of our food was good - I especially enjoyed the mozzarella sticks. The kids especially enjoyed sticking the dollar bills to the wall. The cool t-shirts are a great Charleston souvenir.

Great location with a fun atmosphere. Food was good (not anything super special but good lunch spot). They have dollar bills all over and you can use markers to add your own. It's cool to read them and see where people are visiting from.

We went to Griffon to watch an NFL game, and had a nice experience. The service was good, especially for a 'sports bar', although this place isn't a typicaly sports bar despite the many TVs playing games. It has dollar bills hanging from every wall, totally covered in them. Their draft beers were good, and po-boy sandwich better than others... More

Unusual decor in this local pub--nice casual feel with locals and tourists at the bar. Stopped in for a beer after touring the historic downtown and ended up staying for late lunch. The food was really good--delicious fish fry and home made soup--and lots of beer choices with local options.

This pub was just a few doors down from our hotel, so we stopped in to take a look and have a drink. So glad that we did. It was a fun environment; warm and inviting. The bartender was so helpful. She made a very good vodka tonic! Menu looked good and folks around us seemed to be enjoying the... More

My wife and I visited Charleston for my sister in law's wedding. We wanted to stop in some local bars and experience the nightlife. Griffon had several South Carolina and Charleston beers by the bottle. The bar was packed and excited. The only negative I'd give Griffon is the money stapled all over the walls... really made the place seem... More

We had some time to kill before a dinner reservation and came here for a round of drinks before. Bartender was great, beer list was good. Fun place to pass the time over beer. Big con, we saw some kind of roach/palmetto bug but I guess that's the south for you!
