Horrible food, horrible price, horrible service.
My family and I are in town for the Little League World Series. We really wanted good seafood tonight. We drove down to Mt. Pleasant, SC and we found Zeus Seafood. So we stopped in. We sat down and the server took our drink order. She brought back our drinks and while we were ordering, she kept rolling her eyes because we would ask her what sides were available. We finally got our food ordered which was very difficult because of the managers' (possibly owner) children were having a swim team banquet. They were extremely loud! We got our salad. It was a small bowl of lettuce, A tomato, 1 cucumber, 1 pepper, and some bean thing that stunk bad. Then we got our soup. I will say the soup was good.
However, the service was bad. I actually had to get up to find someone for drink refills. Then, our food came. I had ordered bacon wrapped, crab stuffed, shrimp $18.95. I took 1 bite and I gagged. I sent it back. My husband had a seafood platter $20, his fried oysters were raw. My son had the child's spaghetti $6.95. The noodles were raw and the sauce was water. My daughter ordered steak & shrimp $20.00. Her steak was supposed to be medium well, it was bleeding! We sent that back to be cooked more. They brought it back and it was so dry and burnt you would need a saw to cut it. She didn't eat that. My older son had grilled shrimp. It was tough but he ate it $18.00 and my daughter had the child's grilled shrimp & $6.95.
We were at a "nice" restaurant and it sounded like a day care because the banquet rooms' door's were left opened. There was over 100 people screaming and yelling the entire time. THEN there were these 3 little boys who kept RUNNING around our table and screaming playing tag. The server at 1 point was literally chasing them! She was screaming, "Boys, NO RUNNING!" So we are thinking that they are some random customers kids being wild and out of control. THEN, she tells us those kids, were the managers!!!!!!!!!! REALLY?
So after we have sent back the majority of our food, the server asks me if I would like some more bread since I didn't eat. I responded, "No. Actually I just want to leave. I was shaking so bad." She said, "I will get your bill." So we get our bill. It's $108.00!! I said, "I am not paying $108.00 when we didn't eat the majority of our food. The manager was called over. He was rude and said he would get the main manager (or owner, the one who's children was running around like it was a jungle gym.) So he comes over and says, "You will pay the bill. Your bill was $130 but I took off 1 meal. So you will have to pay the $108." I said I felt that was stealing from us since the quality of food was so horrible that we couldn't even eat it. He said, "I have dealt with people like you before. People of YOUR KIND." WHAT? People of my kind? Just what is people of my kind? That's a question I would still like answered!
So anyway, the police were called by both of us. But my children got very upset by this. So we paid $90 and left. However, I feel that our money was basically stolen since we didn't eat $30 worth of food. Not to mention the atmosphere was absolutely horrific. I do NOT suggest this restaurant to anyone EVER!!!!!!
Best restaurant in Charleston, SC. Amazing food and wonderful service! This was one of the best culinary experiences I have ever had. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
A healthy oasis. Best food I ate during my first visit to Charleston. My husband, a friend and I were driving through Mt Pleasant, getting our bearings. He asked my to look on my side of the street and let him know if I saw anyplace I thought would have good food. I said "There's Zeus Grill and Seafood. That sounds good." So, we tried, and loved, it. Our friend and I had Greek salad. My husband had the house salad. I ate grilled fish with carrots and zucchini. My husband and our friend had slow roasted chicken with the carrots and zucchini. It was delicious, healthy food for a reasonable price. The service was good, too. Our server was very outgoing and attentive. If we return to Charleston, we'll definitely be baaaaaack! In an area known for mostly fried, over-priced food, Zeus is a true oasis.
