A nice place - very much along the lines of an English pub - with a good atmosphere. The beer selection was pretty good, with 16 taps and about the same number of bottles and cans. The service wasnít overly friendly but it was efficient. (Visited 16 February 2014).

This place is packed with paraphernalia, in an interesting location downtown. Friendly staff. Medium sized list with a few surprises. Cheap.

Cool place w a decor that just keeps your eyes wandering. The walls are literally covered in signed dollar bills from patrons past, and how can you argue with an oil painting of the most interesting man in the world? Beer selection left a little to be desired, but you instantly feel accepted as a local if youíre rooting for the home team

Kind of a cool little dive bar close to the water in Charleston. Good amount of taps with a couple solid local selections that they rotate, from what I can tell. Dark wood and stone, with dollar bills stapled everywhere. Not a destination, but if you are in the neighborhood not a bad place to grab a brew.

I merely knew this was a historic tavern with a decent beer list. I wasnít entirely certain what to expect but this was a little divier than I thought. A few TVís were up showing baseball and dollar bills were stapled all over the place which was a weird contrast to the stone and wood decor. Tap list is not bad, but nothing I was really excited to drink was on. I settled for some Ranger IPA. Menu was not too bad, but nothing really jumped out at me. I had some nachos which were alright. Very average bar. I canít go one way or the other on this place. I wonít be making a beeline for the Griffin on my next visit, but if Iím on the street with an hour to kill Iíd stop by again.

Great place - service could be better. The atmosphere is very warm and enjoyable. They have darts, and dimly lit table area to enjoy with friends. Sports on TV and good music. Great place to meet for a drink with a friend. Decent tap selection - Foothills Porter served in Foothills glassware - Moylans Hopsickle on tap. For their size - a good place to get a craft beer.

If youíre looking for a classy dive bar to enjoy a craft beer, the Griffon is the place. They always have so many hoppy beers on tap, I canít decide. The Griffon tapped a Foothills Sexual Chocolate this past year - thatís something to be proud of - Charlestonís coming of craft-beer age. A great Hole #9 in bar golf - I finished par with an Avery DuganA. My first choice bar to enjoy a craft beer on the penninsula.
