202 Coleman Blvd. (Mt. Pleasant)
Lunch, Dinner, & Weekend Brunch
Burgers, brunch fare, beer, and a sprawling bar and patio make for a comfortable place to hang and enjoy yourself.

Los Pollos Hermanos says... Stopped in to check this place out twice in the past week. Super nice design and decor except for a few uncomfortable barstools with no backrests. Most had them, some did not. Nice to see a pool table, a rarity in Mount Pleasant these days. Excellent restroom, of course it is brand new, and perfectly clean. Fantastic service on both visits, however, this place is going to falter unless someone gets a grip on the menu. It is all over the place with no defining specialty item. Not to say every restaurant has to have one, but a wide selection with nothing really appealing or outstanding will not keep people coming back. It would not take much to wipe out some of Wild Wing's business since they have the worst wings in town. Simply offering some decent ones at half the price would do the trick and still provide plenty of profit margin to keep the doors open. Seriously, why do tiny pieces of chicken have to cost a dollar each everywhere. Also, most patrons primarily hanginng out at this location to drink and socialize are not likely to pounce on the opportunity to order a bowl of bog, macaroni, or collard greens, so please leave the comfort food to Page's Okra Grill. The burgers at The Shelter may actually be great, but does the town really need another "greatest burger in town" entry? Thankfully, The Shelter seems to be cutting into Triangle's business (so easy a Pelican wearing a happy hour sign could do it), the result of the airy bar and a nice outdoor patio with picnic tables. It is hopeful The Shelter will enjoy a long run because it is a unique space that seems to be well managed. All it really needs are "a little more reasonable than the rest" beer prices and a better focused menu. In any case, it surely is a welcome upscale and more civilized alternative to the usual Shem Creek scene. ★★★★★
