Stopped for some snacks and cold beverages while taking family thru Charleston. The potato soup was good. Thoroughly enjoyed the buffalo shrimp. Beer was cold. Service was great.

Really fun place to go for drinks and an inexpensive dinner. Our waiter recommended the fish and chips and they were great! Everyone was really friendly and they had great beers on tap.

What a great pub! The walls and ceiling are lined with signed dollar bills from patrons who have visited. They have an ok selection of beer and a very limited wine selection. The menu looked appealing, but we only came for a drink.

Low-key place to grab a sandwich or platter. The interior is decorated with dollar bills (with customer's names) all over the walls, ceiling, etc. - interesting decor!

Had dinner here and the food was not bad for bar food. The atmosphere was fun. This is a seat yourself place so don’t be shy when you walk in to get a table. Lots of beer too.
