Ate here as it was recommended but was disappointing. Staff was awesome but food had a lot to be desired. Cajun fries were good but everything else was sub par. Just a great place to drink not eat.

Dined at BS on $6 burger night. Four of us very pleased with our choices. Excellent Swiss mushroom burgers (2) & fried pickle burgers (2). Kudos to Jessica for being very attentive to the table.

The Blind Squirrel is a restaurant that has several fun menu items. You can get sandwiches, salads, soups or entrees. The menu has unique items. I really liked the portabella mushroom burger and the shrimp salad. My husband has tried several of the different burgers. The prices are reasonable.

I gave this place a very positive review in January, 2013. After more than 3 years of lunches and dinners a few times a month I'm disappointed to give the experience recently a TOTAL THUMBS DOWN. Ownership has problems that have developed with this place and they include the attitude of the owner I met today. I'll address that first.... More

As locals, we stop in often. Great HH from 4-6 on beer and recently-added wells. Food has improved over the last couple years. We enjoy the burgers, chicken avocado sandwich and the jasadilla. The staff has learned to be friendly and attentive to customers or they won't survive! Owners are very friendly and like suggestions and comments on the food.... More

The owners are very friendly and mingle with the patrons. They truly want to make sure you have an enjoyable experience. Pricing is fair and the menu offers a good selection.

This restaurant and bar has great food and tons of drinks available. Craft beer on top like Mt pleasant IPA. The only downside is it can be a bit loud and hard to hear others with you.

The Burgers here are awesome! Just make sure you bring an appetite! The service is very good as well. A great "go to" if you're hungry and want a burger, but not typical fast food. My personal favorite is the PBB&J (Peanut Butter, Bacon, and Jelly). I was kind of leary at first, but was truly DELISH!!!

Stopped here for a Saturday night dinner. Looking at the front door on W Main we were not sure we wanted to go in. But we did and we were glad. There is a good variety on the menu, and the prices are reasonable. Service was friendly as well.

We picked this place for dinner on a Friday night, and were very happy with our choice. If you're in the mood for an awesome homemade burger (none of this frozen stuff here!), you will love this place....there are several interesting choices, but the "Atery Clogger" was my burger of choice. Big homemade burger, bacon, cheese, cartelized onion with a... More
