This old fashioned historic pub, has great food and isn't your typical Charleston expensive. A large soup and salad meal for me cost only 12$. It's a must stop place if you're only here for a few days.

This was located right next door to our hotel & we went for dinner one night & drinks the other. If you go for dinner we highly recommend the fish & chips they were delicious

Best fish & Chip I ever had!!! It is just off Bay St, near the fountain. It has $20,000 in one dollar bills stapled every where.!! Always a big crowd.

I was sceptical when I read reviews about this being the place for fish and chips in charleston. The Griffin is a bar with real character! Great beer selection & friendly bar staff! Don't forget to decorate your dollar!

We picked up food to go here, on our way to Sullivan Island beach, and the bar staff rocked. Here and the Fleet House have very cordial family service and bring a laid back appeal that makes you glad to appreciate the city itself as well as its residents.

The food was very good the service not so good. Waitress was a little put off when one of the gentlemen in our party asked her name! We had salads, wings and sandwiches. The wings were the only disappointment, a little undercooked and gooey. The potato salad side was delicious. Seemed to be only one waitress working entire restaurant so... More

Great little hole in the wall. the fish and chips were as good as advertised. If the service had been more open/welcoming, it would have earned a 5.
