hot mess!

This bar is NOT gay. They’ll kick u out if ure wearing a tank top. They’ll admonish you if you kiss another person of the same sex.

For a bar that is suppose to be gay friendly they sure are quick to turn away their customers. It is nice that straight bar accepts my attire before this place does. If you're a gay friendly bar you should be open to all types of people. Sorry I wore a tank top in 90+ degree weather!

I love dive bars but...

Our experience was pretty bad, innatentive bartenders, rude bouncers and terrible drinks. We're generally pretty forgiving of poor service but ugh, this was some of the worst. Headed to club one, not really our style but much friendlier.

Dissapointed

We have always loved Chuck's. It has always been one of the favorite parts of any trip we've taken to Savannah. Until now. My friends and I will never step foot in the place again. They have a new "dress code" which includes things like "No Tank Tops (Men)" and "No Loose Fitting Pants". I don't know if anyone has mentioned this to Chuck, but his bar is a dive which, until now, has always welcomed everyone. It appears they have now adopted a completely racist and sexist new policy that has changed our minds about this place. The bouncer (who was black - that's important in a minute) refused to let my friend in Saturday night because he was wearing a tank top - despite the fact that there were other people (men and women) wearing tank tops. They were all white. My friend is black. We were all shocked and I tried to figure out from the bouncer what was going on. He immediately became enraged and would not discuss the matter and eventually told all of us to leave. What's even more shocking is the article in this month's "Out" magazine hailing Chuck's as a great gay bar. If you care at all about the rights of others - gay, straight, white or black, then I suggest you never visit Chuck's again. I know that all of us will be spending our money somewhere else on our next trip. One good note: the bartender is a great guy. I hope he finds somewhere to work where LGBT and non-white people want to spend money.

third time trying this...1/2 star doesn't work with the app!

Lame, quiet, app say happy hour-NOT! Opens late (7p or 8pm) - not happy hour. Bartender is on her phone...maybe that is how we should talk? She didn't say two words to me...I wish I new how she communicated...or what app she talks with ... I got here for happy hour, it was closed, I went to the chart house! Not gay but awesome...great service, happy hour prices rock, and wow...Jon my bartender wasn't bad to look at!
