  1. SNOB.

    I will never run the risk of eating at FIG again. Radically inconsistent from plate to plate.

      I also don't understand the love affair with this board and FIG. Tried it twice and both times it was dismal.

      My husband and I eat in Charleston twice a week. SNOB is my go to and has been since it opened.

        Yep. Love me some SNOB. Just an excellent experience all around.

        To be fair, half of our meal at FIG was really, really good. But the other half was just pathetic, and at those prices the whole damn meal had better be perfect. I'll never return.

    2. Other than the loud mouth at the next table, I truly loved my dinner at SNOB. Totally passed on Fig. The food at SNOB was incredible!!!

      1. Wow. Sad to hear that FIG has gone downhill so much-- we've had several excellent meals there. Only had lunch at SNOB-- very good charcuterie plate, but not mindblowing.
