Pretty cool place just a short walk from the lackluster/bad Southend brewpub. Definitely a dive feel to it. Dollar bills affixed to just about every surface of the structure, kind of dark, seems to be a bit more of a local hangout than a touristy spot.
Food menu is more towards the pub classics--burgers, fish and chips, chicken tenders, etc. Beer list is pretty solid and features some nice Charleston and SC offerings, but does have a fair number of more common/large brewery beers. Enough to keep your average beer drinker appeased but also has something for the ticker in all of us. Pretty good pricing, I thought.
Enjoyed my stop here. It’s not so much of a destination, but just a good place to have a drink and maybe some food.
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 wasn’t overly friendly but it was efficient.

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 you’re 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 wasn’t entirely certain what to expect but this was a little divier than I thought. A few TV’s 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 can’t go one way or the other on this place. I won’t be making a beeline for the Griffin on my next visit, but if I’m on the street with an hour to kill I’d 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.
