Toast - Summerville Ratings and Reviews
We have been here a few times, each with less than great service and food. Yesterday was the last. We arrived and the waiter had no idea what he was doing, acted as if he was high or drunk.
sat us, brought coffee, took all orders and forgot one of us, brought food, no flatware. I had ordered pancakes, they brought one, said the other was coming. They brought the other on another plate and asked if I would "flop" it ontop of my first one. (kinda funny).
we ate, and honestly the food was just fine. The waiter kept wandering around, and others as well. really chaos. We finally went behind the counter and got our own flatware so we could eat.
After eating we sat, waiting on our check, and waiting, and waiting.. we saw the lobby was full of customers waiting for a seat. They could clearly see that most of the restaurant was simply waiting on a check, they were not happy.
About then our waiter slammed into a waitress, spilling hot coffee on a young lady. a total mess.
We never did get our check. We decided to simply go to the counter and pay. The guy didn't seem to think anything was wrong, offered no compensation, or an apology at all.
fyi, the owner might want to consider random drug tests.
We've been to the one downtown, its nothing like this one.
When a patron has reservations and they arrive prior to a call, don't take the call and then seat them. The waiters could be a bit more enthusiastic. The pork chops were burnt, the fried tomatoes were the bomb! I may give this restaurant another try, prices are not over the top.
This is our second visit and we were overall pleased with this experience. The waiter was new to the job and a little inexperienced but he was pleasant and sufficient. My wife had the fried flounder in which she absolutely enjoyed with the exception of coleslaw. She stated it was horrible and just simply left it. My friend and I both had the steak and found it acceptable except they were out of A-1 sauce. I felt someone should have taking the initiative and ran to a local store and made a purchase to accommodate their dinner guests. The deserts were amazing!!! We will be back ..
We had Kendra and she was training a new server... they both did an amazing job making sure we were happy with everything and keeping our drinks full.
Food was great husband loved the sample of Shrimp&Grits....
The Sweet Tea Chicken was amazing...
We will go back
Took the family here to celebrate a birthday. Thought it would be a good alternative to going into Charleston during Restaurant Week. Appetizers of fried green tomatoes and coconut shrimp were delicious! Main courses varied..shrimp and grits less than ordinary; crab cakes were better than they looked (they looked way over cooked). Server tried to push the ref velvet cupcakes even though was told we really don't do "cake"; ordered two key lime pies...only one left,,.didnt notice until the next t day that she still charged for two!! Not sure we'll be back..expected more.
We went for restaurant week. The french onion soup was super super salty. I couldn't finish mine.
I got the sweet tea glazed chicken. It was okay. The glaze didn't really have any flavor to it. Which was shocking cause after the soup I thought it would be super sweet. The chicken was dunked in the glaze and by the end of the meal the breading was coming off the chicken. Should have asked for the glaze on the side.
My husband got the shrimp and grits and he said they were ok.
Husband and I both agreed that everything kinda tasted "canned" or "processed". Shame.
First time and probably last time.
I brought my sister here for her graduation dinner and it was her first time eating at a non fast food/sports bar restaurant. Her review would have been all 5 stars and that is what's important to me. However, I was not too impressed. James is a wonderful server, extremely timely and personable. The difference her menu however was just okay and I've eaten a similar menu at better places. The crab dip was amazing I could have easily eaten it for the entire dinner! But the shrimp and grits was missing something crucial. I've eaten this dish done a million different ways and still there's always that flavor that brings me back home, it's the sole reason I order the dish. As far as the sides go their potato salad is the biggest disappointment ever. The potatoes were extremely over cooked and it ruined the entire dish. The cake took me out of this world. My sister begged me to buy it and bring it home but I know we'd both eat ourselves sick with sweets!!!! I will definitely return for breakfast one day but dinner? Never again...
We were very disappointed. The waiter didn't know the menu at all. He said he normally worked breakfasts and was unable to explain different dishes we asked about.We were there for a birthday dinner with no acknowledgement from them. The desserts were stale and should have been thrown out. Alot of other choices to pick from so I will not go back.
We were unhappy with the room we were assigned: no air conditioning; the waiter assigned to us provided no silverware settings or water; the food we received had to be sent back because it was cold by the time we received our silverware; staff, in general, seemed unaware we were waiting for service---very unprofessional and lax. They were having a bad night. Not recommended.
Highly unusual for a Friday night, Toast in Summerville was not busy. The main dining room was almost full; one table in the dining area to the right was full; and two people at the bar. We were seated immediately in the dining room to the right and soon were the only two in there. Ashley quickly took our drink order and returned with only one straw. We offered an appetizer order and still did not get a straw. Within a few minutes our appetizer of Fried Green Tomatoes came - it was delicious, as usual.
When Ashley returned for our supper order, she still did not have a straw but before taking our order went to get one.
She returned, took our order, then left. We flagged down the appetizer server to bring us more water.
Our meals came and Ashley asked if the appetizer server had gotten us water! Really? Isn't that her job?
Of course, the food was really good. But for not being busy, I was extremely disappointed in the service.
We will go back
We went for dinner it was fair nothing to excite your senses was hoping it would be as good for dinner as it is for breakfast and brunch but no such luck. I think we will only try breakfast type foods here from now on. They do serve breakfast all day so if I feel the need I can have breakfast for dinner
Appetizer arrived 45 minutes after we ordered it. Beef tenderloin was ordered Medium. Came out Rare. Sent it back and it was slightly more done (but still not Medium). Husband Said it had good flavor, just wish it was more done. My fried fish was good. We both loved the mashed potatoes. Dessert was the best part. Manager comped the appetizer and my husbands meal without us asking for any concession. She also comped the dessert as an additional apology for the snafu with the food. The service was really good. Had several servers and managers check on us throughout the night. Will give them one more shot to get it "right".
Service beyond slow. Entrée was raw. Replacement entrée too many onions and too many fries. When I asked for mayonnaise, I received sweet icing.
Management needs to make sure the chef(?) knows the difference between raw chicken and cooked chicken. Also needs to train his/ her servers.
We had been to Toast previously and probably would not have returned. However, we had been given a gift certificate, and decided to have dinner there. When we arrived the place was almost empty, we couldn't understand what at 7pm on Saturday. The food turned out to be surprisingly very good. The waitress was not very attentive, as she was very busy gabbing with the kitchen staff. Even though there were few customers we had to wave our hand to get her attention when she forgot to credit the gift certificate onto the bill. Then she had to ask the manager how to do it. This was an Open Table Certificate, but she stated that she had never seen one before. The Toast in downtown Charleston is a different kind of place. I don't know what's wrong with the Summerville location. If they don't do better they will soon go out of business, just as the two previous restaurants at that location.
When we picked out Toast for dinner, we picked it due to the star ratings. When we walked into the restaurant, it was cute and quaint and the host was friendly. He apologized for not having our table ready, which was not necessary but it was nice. We came during Restaurant Week in hopes to try something delicious. The salad was good. The dinner was nothing spectacular. We ordered the special that night, Prime Rib cooked medium rare and it came out well done and loaded with fat. I guess since it was on special, you didnt get the best cuts. The desert we tried, Peach Cobbler. It was just ok as well. The cobbler was actually bland and a little dry. We were glad it had ice cream on the side. The food was ok but we will not be back. There are way to many other restaurants that stand out. Sorry if this review upsets anyone. I just was not impressed.
This was a special occasion as it was my wife's birthday. She order the Beef Tenderloin. The beef was thin and tiny, but cooked properly. The vegetables Zucchini and Squash were overcooked and mushy. I order the restaurant week special - Rib eye Steak. The shape was odd, thin on one side and thick on the other. Part of the steak was well done and the other medium. The flavor was good. They ran out of desert and after two tries of ordering desert the waitress said she would substitute with cheesecake. So I said it was my wife's birthday and she offered to put in extra piece in the bag. Obviously, the piece was cut in half as it was triangle shape and no more than 1 inch at it's widest to razor thin at tip. The experience was not what I expected as I have heard very good reviews about the restaurant downtown. Sorry I have to be so brutally honest but the special occasion was ruined for us.
My fiancé and I had never heard of this restaurant but were looking for somewhere to eat that was close to home during Restaurant Week. We were happy with the food choices, the drink choices and the atmosphere. Our waitress was amazing and so attentive. She could tell from across the room that we needed something before we even said anything. It was great. I would definitely recommend Toast - Summerville for a casual dinner out or a date night.
The food was really good and the portions were large. My boyfriend and I shared the crab and shrimp nachos and white truffle fries. We thought we would then be hungry for our mains but I ended up getting mine to go. We got the crab cake sandwiches and they were great too. Our waitress never checked in with us, and it was loud, would still return for the food. Good with gluten free.
the meatloaf and mashed potatoes were loaded with salt, as was inappropriate gravy
gravy for meatloaf is brown NOT the grayish paste that is served with biscuits for breakfast
My friends enjoyed their meals but mine was just beyond belief
I have eaten here before and enjoyed the food immensely - this was a surprise
We both had the steak and it was surprisingly good for the price of $15.95. We had had the steak about a month before and were happy to find that it wasn't just good fortune that we enjoyed the beef on our first visit as the second steak was equally good. Had a nice house salad that is probably more than most will eat, but good. Also split the cheesecake dessert and itw as very nice too. One fault I find is that the bar doesn't make a very good martini. Guess the crowd that comes here isn't the martini type! All in all a good meal with good service at a good price.
This was the third time we visited this establishment, this time with out of town guest. Our guest wanted shrimp and grits and I recommended Toast as I love them there. Well after we received our meal I began to notice the Shrimp and grits were no where near what they were in my previous visits, in fact they were tasteless. I was a little embarrassed to say the least after raving about the meal. I asked our waitress if there was a new chief and she informed me there was, I told her the meal was a let down, she offered to get us something else but we refused as to not to cause a hassle for her. Will we return? I'm not sure yet.
