Glad to hear that I'm not the only one disappointed by Balters. Tried it 3 times and didn't care for the food, small portions and the high price. Thought that maybe I just didn't have the taste for fine cuisine.

😮

BTW...the original balter Chef Digby Stridiron was recently fired from Parcel 32 in Charleston. I guess they didn't like the food either. Here's the link:

My favorite is Salud! It's small and intimate, but still has a fun feel, particularly at the bar. We always run into people we know, and for us, it's right in the neighborhood. The food is outstanding. We have our favorites, but we are never disappointed when we try something new. Good service too. It's considered upscale, so I wouldn't call it inexpensive, but there is a bar menu with lower priced choices.

Recently visited the new restaurant on the north shore, Rowdy Joe's. Can't wait to go back. It's a neighborhood bar feel, with tables inside and out on a porch. I had the fish tacos ($12) and my husband had the Asian ribs ($22). Both were excellent. Service was good too. Oh, almost forgot.....The Espresso Chocolate Chip homemade ice cream is about the best ice cream I have ever had!!!

Neil,
I don't have the web address handy, but SCUBA publishes a page on their site with a lot of the STX restaurants. It's not advertisements. The restaurants don't have a thing to do with what is posted there, so it's all honest. I go to it often, if we want to go somewhere new , or I'm just having a senior moment and can't think of anywhere to go for lunch or dinner.

I must still be half asleep this Monday AM. Didn't realize I replied to post that was from years ago. Anyway, it's interesting to see all the changes & new places mentioned.

We love Rowdy Joes and it's close enough to our condo. It has a nice outdoor seating area with plants and decorations but where you don't feel you are paying for the view.

As for food, ditto Fish Tacos and my wife LOVES the Bleu Cheese Cheesecake salad. Yes, great service also.

One note, the bar area can get a little "rowdy" (loud & crazy, not anything bad) but it's part of the atmosphere... If you sit outside you can just laugh at the noise if you don't feel like joining in.

this is kept current as time goes by and as people have good and bad experiences at local STX restaurants

I agree about Common Cents. The food has been pretty great the last couple of times we went in. Also, tried Pepper Grill as something new, had a huge pate and plate of ribs for hubby with all the sides and both were quite good. They have a large menu. It is a food truck with built- on deck adjacent to the first gas station heading out of C'sted town into East end. Well taken care of spot with an older man and lady running it.

You really can't go wrong with Savant. The food and setting are amazing.

We ate at Savant in early July. Food and service was outstanding.
