A few pople around Charleston mentioned the Griffon as being a real dive bar with good beer. I had to stop at that point. A cool brick store front, old like the rest of Charleston, with a neat old English looking sign out front. Stepping inside you are greeted by an open floor plans with a moderate sized bar, tons of tables set wherever, and exposed beams. The unique thing about this place is that every open beam of wood has a dollar bill stapled to it for some odd reason, but it's cool. It's dark, it's loud, and there are some dart boards in the back. I like this place.

There are 15 or 16 taps, all craft, from your entry level Sam Adam's stuff to bigger bolder local offerings. The list focuses mainly on local stuff but there's a smattering of offerings from elsewhere.The beer was fresh and delicious. The prices were cheap enough to keep me at the bar for a while, and the bartenders were chatty and regular. A couple dirty jokes, some attitude, some laughs. The Griffon is good times.

We went here when the place we wanted to go to was not open. I liked this place, it had the feeling of being a place for locals and was a little dark place that had dollar bills stapled to the walls and ceiling. It seemed clean and the service was friendly and fast. Lots of ya'll's ! Beer selection wasn't great but the beers the guys had they liked. I had a BLT and it was quite good although it would have been better on sourdough instead of rye. The other dishes ordered were fish and chips which was said to be delicious and chili cheese fries also delicious. Prices were very reasonable for what we got .

My wife and I were in Charleston over the weekend for a wedding and after finding an insanely long line at Closed for Business we decided to check out The Griffon. The beer selection was OK. I had West Brook's White Thai and IPA and both were kind of boring and that was the best they had to offer. The fish and chips I ordered was really solid. Prices were more than reasonable. 5 beers between the two of us, plus dinner and we walked out spending under $50. I wouldn't go out of my way to go to this place, but it wouldn't hurt me feelings if I ended up here again.
