  • The cockroaches I saw behind the ice cream counter were disheartening. So was watching an employee scrape moldy cheese off the top of some shredded cheese topping for hot dogs, and continuing to use the rest. Please keep in mind that there is no DHEC Letter Grade on this establishment. I wouldn't let my kids eat here and neither should anyone else.
  • Nice little general store filled with random trinkets and candy.
  • Store is closed at 8:45pm on a Friday night. Beware of store hours
  • Nice tourist attraction for the Moon Pie lovers.
  • My wife and I stopped here to look around and get a milkshake at the old style ice cream counter in the back. One of the best milkshakes I've had in a while. Very fun atmosphere as well! Definitely worth stopping in and taking a look around, be sure to treat yourself to a milkshake as well!

Where to stay in Charleston

Charleston is serviced by dozens of local hotels and practically every major U.S. chain. Expect to pay top dollar for a room on the downtown peninsula, particularly if you wish to stay in one of the historic hotels. The upside of taking a room there is the proximity of all major attractions--you won't need a car to explore and enjoy your visit. Less expensive options are available in North Charleston, West Ashley, and Mount Pleasant, where you'll find all kinds of inns for the budget-conscious traveler.
