    The Mac and cheese was also quite good... Dryer rather than a creamy type.

    The Dark & Stormy is a delicious cocktail! Probably one of my favorite cocktails of all time. They make their own Ginger beer and I believe the limeaid is freshly squeezed.

    Chicken & Waffles is on point. Honey butter is so good. Mac and cheese is a great side option. If you're craving eggs, get the huevos rancheros!

    I really enjoyed the huevos rancheros. I thought the fried chicken was just ok.

    Vegetable rarebit is delicious but on the small side, however if you order a side of fries after the meal comes you get a whole plate! Good food and reasonably priced.

    For vegetarians: Huevos rancheros were amazing. Mac and cheese. Grilled cheese with tomato soup.

    Moscow mules is best I've ever had as well as the French toast. I like mine not soggy and light egg taste. This was perfect for me

    A visiting New Yorker's opinion...: a MUST try. Hot chicken, grits and the Moscow mule rule. Great interior and a great vibe. Southern meets Brooklyn.

    The Rarebit is a throwback bar, both in its decor and drink prices. The cocktails are bright with housemade sodas, and breakfast is served all day. Go for the drinks.

    Have the Moscow Mule! It's a wonderful drink! Goes great with a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich at midnight.

    If you come here and don't order a Moscow Mule, God kills a puppy. Just do it. Trust me. Think of the puppies.

    I wasn't impressed by any flavor. Came for lunch, dined at the bar. It was a little warm thankfully the marble bar provided some relief. Left wanting to go grocery shopping & doing better.

    Drinks are good but the food portions are small. The po boy was average and the vegan burger was well below par. Not worth the hype or the anticipated wait.

    Cocktails are incredible. Brunch is incredible. It's barely been open a month and I'm there multiple times a week. Hands down one of my new favorite places in Charleston!

    Shep! There aren't a lot of bartenders left that know how to act like one and they have one here.

    Chicken and waffles are delicious ( but a little on the small side. My sidecar was very good but minuscule

    Da food's not terrible, but it's by no means great. I waited over 20 mins at the bar for a drink n it wasn't packed. I placed my order w a waitress instead n got served quickly.

    Super busy! Entrees aren't too expensive. I'd suggest sitting at the bar at least until it isn't "new" and you can find a seat.

    Don't come here. Service slow, drinks small and expensive, and my well done steak come out closer to medium rare. It was a good idea but poor execution.

    If you order a burger always get a double... If some is good then more must be better. #doubledown
