King Street is closed to traffic on the second Sunday of each month. We happened to be in town at that time. People watching, street musicians, restaurants with tables on the street. Stopped at Olde Towne Grill for lunch.

Service was fast and friendly. Food was good and quick to come out considering the amount of people being served. They were super busy: packed inside and at the outdoor tables. One person in our group had a burger and said that it was the best burger they had eaten in their life.

Had gyros and fries that were really good, service outstanding. Husband had crab cake sandwich that he is still talking about. They say they are the oldest family restaurant in Charleston and it's easy to see why they are so successful.

The chicken was inedible, undercooked and looked like it was just thrown on the plate. The server was unfriendly and appeared like she hated her job. I recommend skipping this place.

All the wines are Greek. We stopped in for a drink while we waited on people. Charming restaurant and very friendly staff.

We had to go to the Market area so we wanted a good lunch away from the tourist traps. We remembered Olde Towne which has been here for many years. You'll see the Greek Chickens turning on the rotisserie in the front window as you pass by. The atmosphere is very laid back. Michael was our server and he did... More

The food here is very "home cooking." I ordered the grilled shrimp. The salad and soup (chicken) were good, the shrimp was good. It's not difficult to grill shrimp. I ordered the greek potatoes and they were okay. Probably my least favorite of the meal. The decor is also rustic.

We drove to Charleston on a day trip while visiting Myrtle Beach. It was our first time being to Charleston and we experienced the best food we've had on our whole trip. We were exploring the market and happened upon this little gem of a restaurant as we're looking for a place to sit down and eat. We were reluctant... More

I just can't see how this place has been in business for so long. Last night was my first trip and I won't go back. I'm in town with my sister, nephew, and mother and we decided to eat there. We arrived around 7 pm. There were only about 3 tables with people at them. The waitress came to our... More

This is a small, casual bar/restaurant downtown in Charleston. The waiter was friendly and efficient. The food is tasty in a nice pub atmosphere.
