I would really like to provide a review. Unfortunately when I stopped by with my wife last Sunday afternoon, the bartender was busy working the ladies sitting at the bar, and the only visible waitress was hanging out speaking with her friends. After 10 minutes of being ignored we left and went to Obrions for dinner...so much for Triangle...just too many places in the area to waste time with this.

My girlfriend and I went to Triangle in Mt P on Friday night and had a wonderful dinner. It was very crowded but we were greeted within seconds and had our choice of sitting inside or on the patio. Our server was very attentive, plus two different managers came by at different points to ask if everything was good. But the real reason I came here to make a post was the food. As a quasi-vegetarian, it's not easy to find real, healthy options around town that are also yummy. Triangle is one of the exceptions. They have a plethora of delicious, health-conscious menu items. In addition to the excellent service and wonderful food, the prices are some of the best you're going to get. Charleston has a gazillion great restaurants to choose from but I can honestly say that Triangle is in my top five, maybe even top 3.

After experiencing repetitive bad experiences shortly after the initial opening of this Triangle location involving poor service, lousy food, and hot beer, I swore to never return again as long as I live. Well, the place has been operating for quite some time now and that fact in of itself is proof that miracles do sometimes happen. After some serious begging and arm twisting a friend coerced me to walk over and have a couple of beers and a bite on a Saturday afternoon around 4:30pm. Regretfully, I agreed under duress and we arrived just before “happy hour” to find the patio area vacant with the exception of two high top tables and some of the stools facing inside the bar. Glancing around, it was immediately evident that the available staff outnumbered the patrons, yet not a single Triangle employee ever acknowledged the presence of our party of two. Instead, the three females and one male comprising the bar staff continued the apparently never ending and not to be interrupted process of arranging things while socializing among themselves. After several unsuccessful attempts to gain the attention of a hostess, waitress, and a waiter seemingly assigned to the patio as punishment and sworn to an oath of silence or possibly just tasked with patrolling the premises to prevent theft of the outdoor furniture, I walked up to the bar to place an order. After standing several minutes with credit card visibly in hand for the purpose of opening a tab, one of the females finally came over to take my order consisting of one PBR and a Corona with a glass. Predictably both beers were warm and the glass was hot from the dishwasher despite the observable ongoing and overly focused display of proper bar preparation. By continuing both the trend of very poor service and the practice of rewarding thirsty guests with consistently hot beer since its grand opening, Triangle cannot ever be accused of not keeping with solid tradition. Cold, lousy food that gets colder while waiting for the silverware and a napkin to arrive is an added bonus for the extremely adventurous willing to beg for a menu from any of the woefully untrained and definitely unmanaged Triangle personnel who might wander within shouting distance. Needless to say there is not a single reason to expend the effort and funds required attempting to simply obtain a cold beer and perhaps a warm snack at the Mount Pleasant Triangle location. One can only attribute the crowds that occasionally congregate there to the fact that smoking is allowed all around the outer perimeter and the presence of a corn-hole toss game for popular entertainment. Sadly and quite disheartening is the undeniable truth that this same no stars review can be universally applied to many other Mount Pleasant establishments as well.

UPDATE: Here is an update to the previous zero stars review. Just for fun my brother and I rolled into a parking space directly in front of the entrance to Triangle in Mount Pleasant on a pair of Harley Davidson Road Kings. It was Saturday, October 13, 2012 at around 2pm. We stood at the front door waiting to be seated as the instructions on a sign suggested for at least five minutes without being greeted by anyone before deciding to finally just sit down at the first table on the patio directly across from the main entrance. I had already briefed my brother on what to expect at this place and actually had no expectation whatsoever of actually being able to order anything. I was simply there to prove a point to my doubting brother that Triangle has the absolute worst service and has done but get worse since opening day. Not surprisingly I was able to do so with no effort required thanks to the unrivaled and consistent uselessness of Triangle's totally oblivious staff. We sat at the table waiting for ten more minutes without ever being acknowledged as potential customers before hopping back on the motorcycles for a ride up to O'Brion's on Highway 41 during which we were laughing all the way about the blatant incompetence of Triangle management and employees. This time I will not make the vow to never return again simply because there are plenty of such days when a good laugh is needed to fulfill the soul. Definitely do not head to Triangle though if it is your thirst or hunger that needs satisfying. Triangle is for losers.

the smoking option is the ONLY attraction. Better to just quit smoking!
