We stopped here for a drink during the day and I ordered a bells two hearted($9). When the young woman (Aleana?)brought us our drinks, she apologized for the pour, half foam but didn't offer to do anything about it. I asked and she just gave me a blank stare. My friend got a similar pour and other beers that came... More

My husband and a local friend went here for a final drink of the night. It was a chilly January night and I loved that they had heaters at every table and clear partitions set up between each table to make for a more intimate experience. It was so cozy! It was a foggy night and a little harder to... More

We had the pleasure of having lunch recently with David as our wait staff. He was very knowledgeable about the food and wine selections, most attentive, and upbeat through our visit. He should be commended for making the experience so memorable. The atmosphere, quality of food, and excellent service will definitely lure us to visit again.

My companion and I were looking for a place for a late afternoon snack and respite and we saw the rooftop bar from our hotel, so we decided to walk over. The lobby is grand, and Santa was asleep in his chair in the lobby! Upon exiting the elevator at the rooftop, it was clear to us that this was... More

Beautiful view and wonderful service. We stopped in twice on our visit in December. Only having drinks, I can't rate the food but it was such a fun, cozy, romantic place for a nightcap and the view was terrific. Will certainly return!

This is my favorite rooftop spot in Charleston. Great service, great cocktails, great food, and the vistas are second to none in the Holy City.

I was staying with my husband at The Market Pavilion Hotel. We decided to head up to the roof to try The Pavilion Bar for lunch the day that we arrived. The restaurant/bar had tables set up all over the roof with heaters at every table and clear partitions set up to cut down on the wind. We both had... More

The beauty of this place has been ruined by the uncaring staff and management team! Dirty tables not cleaned, you basically have to drag yourself to the bar to get a drink and then seat yourself. That is if you find a clean table. I somehow keep giving this place a chance in the hopes that it would change but... More

Wewent there for drinks Xmas eve in 77 degree weather. What a wonderful way to spend the day. Our server David was extremely accomodating and a joy to talk to. Our new favorite server in our old favorite place. We did not eat there so can't comment. Have always enjoyed the food both downstairs and roof top in the past.

Excellent food and drink service with a sweeping view of Charleston, the river and bridge right along with a pool. It was cool up there and breezy-- they have installed clear windbreaks which help considerably and lit the outdoor heaters so it was very pleasant!! We ate lunch here 3 times and tried almost everything on the menu--everything was very... More
