Good Bloody Mary and appetizers. We had mahi mahi bites and spinach dip. Close to Coastal Carolina University. Minus 1 star because they allow smoking inside.

We went here for a few drinks and dinner on a Friday night. It was hidden away in a location you wouldn't expect. The establishment is nice and decent size. The food was pretty good but mine was very salty, everyone else really enjoyed their food. It was extremely loud, you couldn't even have a conversation with the person next... More

Prices here are very competitive. Food is good. A friendly atmosphere. A good mix of college students and other age groups. Lots of locals. However, the smoke is really bad. Smoke everywhere. Cigarette and cigar smoke permeates the place. This is bad enough for the customers but at least we can leave. The employee's are subjected to this and have... More

Being very sensitive to cigarette smoke, my throat bothered me shortly after we sat down. And after being there for 2 1/2 hours, my clothes now smell. I would not have picked this place to meet a group of friends whom we hadn't seen for several years but they selected it as a convenient location. My wife and I both... More

Having just moved to the Grand Strand, our Brother and Sister-in-law introduced us to this crazy bar- "Cheers of the South" where everybody knows your name. Sister-in-law raises her hand for desert and a mud-slide mysteriously appears. Everyone is very friendly - staff and patrons alike. Food is typical bar fair - no complaints - daily happy hours make for... More

This is a great place for college students. They have decent prices and decent food. You may see a bug or two but hey. You pay for what you get. I'd return again though.

I was in town for work and saw the great reviews on Trip Advisor. I got here when it opened and, because I haven't seen a 'smoking' restaurant in years, I didn't even notice the ashtrays. About halfway through my tasty BLT salad, other people arrived and started smoking. UGH! I had to leave quickly as I'm allergic to the... More

This place used to be a favorite dining spot since me and my husband moved down south in 2003. I don't know if new management came in or what, but the place has roaches. Last time we were there a tiny bug crawled across our table and we just thought, that maybe it was a gnat, but then my in... More
