Very casual place! Food was good and not very pricey for a restaurant in downtown Charlestown. Would definitely recommend.

Visited this restaurant on a recent weekend in Charleston after it was recommended by a coworker. We were not disappointed at all. Chicken salad sandwich was amazing and we loved the fries. Large selection of beer at very reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere.

One of my favorite craft beer bars I have ever visited. Great atmosphere, great choices, great service. Very much enjoyed their offering of Coast All-Citra Hopped (a rye pale ale) and Holy City Pluff Mud (a porter). Great place to stop in and unwind.

Awesome. Try the buffalo oysters. This is our 3rd visit and the food (and beer) keeps getting better. Eva

So many beers, so little time! A nice bar with friendly staff and a wide range of beers. If you're passing, pop in for a cold one.

I saw reviews on Yelp and was thrown off by their name so I decided to ask the front desk at our hotel. We came here last Sunday for drinks and a quick bite to eat.

We stumbled across this place while looking for a late dinner after a long workday. Two words (OK, three): pulled-pork poutine. And awesome service. And open late. Good stuff.

We needed a last minute lunch on Sunday morning before heading to the airport and I am glad we stumbled into Closed for Business, which had no line but an incredible beer list and better than necessary food.
