This is a place that I frequent quite often. They tend to have the best live music in city, and if you are in the mood for bar food they rank in my top three in charleston(they have fried corn bites that are great.) for bar food it is a bit expensive, but then again it is some of the best.

Beer wise they have a selection of at least 100 beers at all times. Check out their website for a complete list(including hobgoblin, the st. peter's, Coopers, RHC Ale Mary, Sam Smiths, and occasionally some Rogue). Usually 8-10 beers on tap. As far as beer goes, not that I am a huge huge fan of it, but it kinda shocks me that they don't carry the only local brewery Palmetto, but hey do have other regionals.

Service: Bartenders tend to go in order of people waiting and from what I have seen they don't favor people waving money in their faces. They also have waiter that will serve you at your table, which is not too common for a bar in our town.

The atmosphere is that of a normal restaurant/sports bar. Like I said they offer some good live music, but the sports bar aspect takes away from it.

Definitely worth checking out. Their website gives a full line up of beer, food, and upcoming shows. Check it out.

I spent a few weeks in the Charleston area and I kept coming back here beacuse of the selection and the service.

The place isn't much from the outside and even less from the inside, it looks like a dive. But the selection is good. They have 12 taps with 2 usually devoted to domestics, while I was there they had Dogfish Head and Coney Island on tap which was a nice surprise. The staff was very friendly and attentive somewhat knowledgeable about beer, though the manager was making an effort to learn more while I was there.

The menu is fairly standard for bar food. The food is above average for a bar I'd say, and they usually have some promotion going on with the food.

Most nights they have trivia or live music or some kind of contest.

If your in there area it's worth a stop, It won't knock your socks off, but it's got a good feel to it.

The Village Tavern was easy enough to find off of Hwy 17 in Mt Pleasant. A rather small place from the outside, but inside, plenty of room for beer and debauchery. I went to the bar, got a beer, and chose to sit outside to complete my latest novel adventure (It was "Lisey's Story" by Stephen King). It was a bit warm but nothing like the last couple of weeks here in the South.

Indoors, it was smoky, which I hate, but they had some nice music playing. There were also a nice assortment of arcade games: Bowling, golf, pinball, and some beanbag game I assume was related to Cornhole.

A paltry selection on draft: SN, Rogue Choc Stout and Hazelnut, Blue Moon, Franziskaner, Harpoon IPA, and a couple others. Plenty of bottled selections but was disappointed in the draft offerings.

Service was awesome. The food took a little long but the server/bartender was very attentive.

As for the food, I chose the chicken sandwich with chili, bacon, and cheese. The chicken was pretty dry and overcooked. The fries were a bit soggy as well.

A nice place for beer in Mt Pleasant, but the food leaves much to be desired. I will probably go back next time in MP, but only for the beer.

Check the website to see what the entertainment and the specials are before you go. Also, they have their beers listed online, (along with the Beer Advocate rating) so you can plan out what you are going to get before you go. This bar was a great find on a vacation to Charleston.

A-The Karyoke was a little much, but the people at the bar were good fun. The decor was typical and the bar itself was nothing speical to get excited about.
Q-The drinks were cheap and good.
S-Before I even sat down at the bar, I was asked what I wanted, and was provided a menu at lightning speed. I was provided with samples of several beers on tap to try very quickly. Both of the bartenders were upbeat and entertaining, and were very on top of everyone's needs.
F-Didn't try the food, but I glanced at the menu, and it seemed affordable.
Value was money in the bank. Beers were cheap, and the selection was great. Most of the time when thereis a good selection of beers at a bar, you have to pay out the ass for all of them. Beers ranged in price from $1.50 (not a special) to around $22 for 750ml rare bottles.
