As I walk in, there is a spacious L shaped bar, and several low top tables going down the long and narrow dinning area. There are some couches to relax on and plenty of eclectic stuff on the wall.

I find a spot at the bar, and the service is top notch. Friendly, knowledgeable, and quick. He knew about the different beers, recommended stuff from the food menu, and obviously takes pride in what CfB has to offer.

Plenty of stuff on tap. Had some Westbrook IPA, Coast Porter, and Grand Teton Oud Bruin. Definitely one of the better beer bars in town. They had a cask engine as well, but nothing was on when I visited.

The food menu is on the smaller side. I went with the Mussels. While the Mussels were of great quality and flavorful, they were topped with fries and a mayo aioli sauce. That sounded just crazy enough to work, but it was a bit of overload. Mussels...great, fries...good, aioli...over barring, and they did not mix that well with the bivalves IMO. I am going to have to go with the Pork Slap, or one of their other items next time.

A great atmosphere, a very good beer selection, great service, and interesting food (even though I was not in love with what I had). I am a fan.

Stopped here for lunch while touring Charleston and really enjoyed it. Loved the quirky atmosphere, pub style with modern touches. Service was very friendly and helpful. I managed to spill two large glasses of water and our waitress was so nice about the huge mess. Even offered to replace my sons almost gone fries that were lost in the flood. Really appreciated her kindness. The beer battered onion rings were fantastic, my son had the pork slap sandwich and reported it delicious. I had the waldorf salad and it was ok but not great. My husband had the cobb salad and loved it. it looked much better than mine also. As for beer they had the Palmetto homefront IPA, Stone Saison and Gratzer Westbrook reported to be very unique. The first two beer were very good especially the Stone but we knew it would be. We would go back here if I hadn't made such a mess and am probably banned.
