Nothing special about the food but there is nothing wrong with the food either, it is just typical bar fare. It is a suitable place for a casual dinner and beer, or to escape the many higher priced area restaurants.

After a long drive we didn't want to get too fancy and we didn't want to go far. Griffon was a nice surprise. Food was very good and it had a casual sports bar college town feel. Watched Syracuse beat Fla State. If you're looking for the frou-frou this is not it.

This is a wonderful place to visit and eat. The selection of beers is amazing and the food is brilliant. I had fish and chips and my wife had chicken tenders. Both were superb and reasonably priced. If you want to eat here, you need to avoid the busy meal times or you have no chance, it's that popular. However... More

Can you insure a place like this? How much money do think is on those walls? Really neat place to stop in for a beer and a snack....we were just walking around and stumbled in. Friendly service, and what about all that money hanging around?!? We hung our own up, they have markers and a stapler to help you make... More

Happens to find this little gem walking around. Such a good vibes. Bartender was awesome and drinks were reasonably priced. The whole bar is covered in dollar bills. Had a great time and will be back for sure!

Very cute place to grab a bite to eat and have a drink. The inside of the pub is decorated with dollar bills signed by patrons. It was very interesting inside seeing that. Service was very good.

The Griffon is one of the reasons we keep returning to Charleston. Our go to is the nachos and chicken tenders- delicious. We love the atmosphere! We recommend it to everyone we know heading to Charleston!

Definitely a dive bar, but all of our food was good - I especially enjoyed the mozzarella sticks. The kids especially enjoyed sticking the dollar bills to the wall. The cool t-shirts are a great Charleston souvenir.
