"Sitting on almost 20 years of crumpled dollar bills and memories, The Griffon is a Charleston legend. The Vendue Range bar is casual with an emphasis on good beers and affordable food. The dining room at lunch is an egalitarian scene with craftsmen chatting with Broad Street lawyers and families on vacation mingling in between. Everyone loves a good deal"
