PSA: Alycia Alley behind Gene’s is being paved this week and is completely blocked off. The Gene’s/Roost parking lot is also closed since it’s only one way into the closed alley. The parking spots on Savannah Hwy are still open, and feel free to use the parking lot on the side of Harris Teeter (pretend you’re downtown and walk a block or two.) Hopefully the paving will be done by Wednesday. Cheers!

Unfortunately, or Kitchen hoods are down, so as of now we’re not serving any food. The bar will be open all day and y’all are more than welcome to order takeout from one of our Avondale neighbors and bring it here.

The good news is that we’re back to our full menu!
We’ll have the kitchen open until 11pm daily until we can adjust our BOH staff and schedule.

Hoping this hood issue will be minor and fixed today. We’ll keep you posted!

Hey West Ashley residents, consider taking this survey and join the discussion about the Greenway and Bikeway here is West Ashley.

This spring, the Clemson School of Architecture will continue to work with the Charleston Parks Conservancy and the city of Charleston to create projects that engage the community of West Ashley along the Greenway and Bikeway. These projects are most successful when community members are informed and involved from the initial phases of design. We are asking the community to complete this survey and to attend a virtual conversation hosted by the Charleston Parks Conservancy on February 10th, 2021 at 6pm. Click on the link below for survey.

Happy Thanksgiving, Charleston!

We’re closed today but we’ll see you this weekend!
Stay safe!

11/07/2020

For the record, we do not participate in any online delivery services (Grub Hub, Uber Eats, Door Dash, etc), and we’re actively working on taking our name off their platforms.

Also, we are currently serving a limited menu because of Covid-19 restrictions (you can call your Governor’s office if you have an issue about that.)

If you’ve had an issue recently, we are sorry. But the easiest way to get To-Go food from Gene’s is calling us yourself and picking it up yourself (you should enjoy any of our 210 beers and our friendly banter while you wait on your food.)

Cheers!

10/17/2020

We will be closing tomorrow at 5pm for a private event. The kitchen will be serving brunch til 4pm. Sorry for any inconvenience. Cheers, y’all!!

We’ve added a few favorites back to our limited menu (Crawdads, Yes!!!) and added a Fish N Chips plate. Goes great with a Hofbrau Munich Lager on draft. We’re open everyday at noon!
