Visiting Charleston on a weekend getaway. Very disappointed. Pineapple mojito watered down. Volcano shrimp was cold. Waitress not very attentive.

Having been to Basil a number of times, I can say that we have never been disappointed. The food is so flavorful that it makes you want to come back for more.
