This is the perfect spot for before or after dinner drinks. We were there during the cooler time, but it was nice and warm. They have giant heaters everywhere and there was a Plexiglas enclosure around you so you feel like it's 100% open but it shielded us from the wind and cool air. The views are incredible and the...

We stopped in for a pre-dinner drink and possibly appetizer. We were able to sit down right away at a table with a great view. The atmosphere was really nice at night. The two of us each ordered a glass of wine and enjoyed the views while sitting outside. Our service was pretty slow (it wasn't very crowded). We didn't... More

Romantic place to spend your anniversary. Watching the pink sky as the sun goes down. Service was spectacular. Food was great. We just enjoyed our time with a bottle of champagne.

My wife and I were there over a weekend and we made it a point to visit here everyday. We sat at the Bar and the service and quality of drinks were great. Dave and JR provided great service at the bar. The menu at the bar was good and the time it took to get food was very acceptable.... More

We went here for a drink at night during our first night in Charleston. Compared to the nightlife we experienced over our stay, we were not impressed with the bartender service (he begrudgingly answered our questions). The atmosphere in general, with the plastic partitions to make it more intimate for your group, and of course the beautiful views made the... More

This has a great scene with many people pouring in for sunset cocktails. A mix of people from all over, welcoming, great drinks, and wonderful view.

Great bar with fantastic view. Seems to be the place to mingle with friends or clients. Really neat glass walls to stop the wind. Great menu and drink selection. Think you can rent the place out for parties. Will be back to see the daytime view.

We went to the roof deck with the intent of sitting a while and having drinks and appetizers, but the piped-in music was loud, and the crowd was random (insecure-looking tourists of various types--which I say as a tourist myself), and the food on the menu looked completely pedestrian and substantially overpriced. So we had one drink each, paid our... More

The lobster & scallop civechie and USDA prime quesadilla tasted especially delicious as we dined al fresco, oohing and ahhing over the exquisite water/bridge view. We appreciated the wind screens and heaters as the weather was clear but a bit windy ... fun & yum!
