Burwell's Stone Fire Grill
wONDERFUL RESTAURANTFood is authentic and fabulous!!!!!!! Talk about real lump fin crabmeat in the crabcake, everything was so wonderful, service, fresh brewed ice tea, I could have taken the help and cook home with me. What is not too love there, take your clients, your family or just meet friends. Lovely pianist playing, excellent cocktail list, Charleston is so lucky to have such a gem of a restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service and food was outstandinThe service and food was outstanding, however the noise leve got very high as the room filled up.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat NightWe had an excellent meal. Food was well prepared and very tasty. Our server was a little inexperienced but very friendly. They have an outdoor bar we didn't see but it overlooks Charleston Harbor and should be a great place to play. Definitely will go back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeThey really went all out modernizing this place awesome food and drinks service was great as well5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Date?Although we had been talking with each other for a bit and knew there was 'something there', Burwell's was our official "first date." I wanted something new(er) and something relaxed, casual and fun with some good eats. Burwell's fulfilled perfectly. Food was delicious (try the flank steak with Mac & Chz side), and then the rooftop area, after dinner, was just the right size.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice eveningWent for Mother's Day....1st visit there. Wanted to try the kangaroo, but it was off the menu. Was a little surprised they offer no fowl or pork entrees either. It is really mostly beef, beef, beef. $$$. Luckily they had grilled swordfish, which was good.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at Burwell's andFirst time at Burwell's and we had one of our best meals in Charleston. Beginning with starters on the rooftop, service and food was great and continued on through dinner. Great meal, great night start to finish.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service butGreat food and service but dessert was disappointing.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best in CharlestonOutstanding From cocktails in the rooftop bar thru desert. Bartenders were great, maitre d and server
Michael both were friendly, professional and overall top notch. We are local and we will be back.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood TimesThe food was very good, and I would highly recommend the mac & cheese side. We also liked the smaller rooftop bar (and the Bacardi girls) for a nice place to chill out for a while after dinner.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food in CharlestonI will tell everyone to go eat here! It was the best meal I ate in Charleston!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFor a restaurant new to theFor a restaurant new to the Charleston scene they are a great find! The service staff is great!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable eveningGreat, friendly and knowledgable staff. Filet mignon was cooked perfectly. Wine selection was paired nicely. Definitely would recommend Burwells4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI normally don't enjoy steak...I normally don't enjoy steak... But I was legitimately sad when I finished mine. The food was incredible! We really enjoyed the whole experience- service was great from start to finish. Definitely will happen again!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcited to try this new CharlestonExcited to try this new Charleston restaurant, it did not disappoint! The food was excellent and loved the option of preparing the steaks on the stones, every bite hot! We tried the deviled eggs appetizer, a little disappointed that the Dijon Mustard was overpowering, and same with the Truffle Mac and Cheese. But our disappointment was acknowledged by our server and a new dish was brought out to replace. They did a tremendous job of making sure we enjoyed everything!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak LoversMy wife and I came for brunch. We did not like brunch menu-- too ordinary. So we asked if we could order steaks off the dinner menu. They agreed. I ordered 8oz filet mignon and it was cooked perfect and was delicious. My wife ordered 8oz ribeye. It was overcooked, extremely lean and had little flavor. It is a good restaurant. However, we prefer Halls Chophouse, which we believe is the best.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic experience - greatFantastic experience - great food and wonderful service, all in a very pleasant setting.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA new favorite!My wife and I selected Burwell's Stone Fire Grill for our 23rd anniversary dinner. It was an excellent choice! The server was outstanding -- very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu -- and the food was excellent. We will definitely return!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our fist trip toThis was our fist trip to Burwell's and it definitely won't be our last! Having frequented the other local fine dining establishments over the years, I was really surprised when I was blown away by the service and food here. Cyprus, Magnolia, McGrady's, and High Cotton ahold be rethinking their approach if they want to keep up with the new kid in town. The service was attentive and personable. Our server, Taylor, was extremely knowledgable about the menu and a delight. The food alone would have earned my highest praise. Too many good things to list out here. Just get out for some truly fine dining at Burwell's Stone Fire Grill!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful staff and managerThe staff and manager at Burwell's was amazing. We were visiting from out of town so we hadn't really heard much about this place. We made a reservation for 815pm at the "Romantic table" but when we got there, there was a couple still there. The staff apologized continuously during our 1 hour wait for the table, but did not rudely rush the couple out. I thought that was wonderful considering i would expect the same treatment. We waited patiently in the bar area where there was lively conversation and great drinks. When we were seated they apologized again with a complimentary glass of champagne. Over all the energy, great food and great prices were amazing. The staff was very attentive and the manager took very good care of us for our wait.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe decibel level remainedThe decibel level remained between 75 and 82 during our entire dinner.
We enjoyed having a view of the coordinated chaos of the kitchen,
The filet was great, my spouse choose braised short ribs and then remembered why he didnt care for that cut. He said it was good but would not order again. I did not care for the crushed cheese crackers in the squah casserole. So i sent it back and had broccolini instead. The creme brulee had a touch of lavender and closed out our meal.
If i wish for a great steak or other grilled i will return....and wear ear plugs, i couldnt hear my spouse anyway.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMService was great and theService was great and the atmosphere was fun. The food was good and came to our table in a timely fashion, and was prepared how we ordered it. We would go again, but would not make it a priority.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, unique restaurantThe food was great! The rooftop bar was awesome! Great bartender upstairs. This is a great place for date night. We really enjoyed ourselves and the food. We had been looking for a place where you can cook your steak on the stone after eating at a similar place in Germany when my husband was in the Air Force. This place was very close to what we remember. We will be back!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and a greatExcellent service and a great menu, with some unique items. Wait staff spot-on and well trained. Flawless performance for our birthday dinner.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent. Delicious. Back soon!!We were a party Of 7 including 3 generations. We were all WOWed by the food! Apps, mains and desserts were all delicious!
The menu was cool - fine ingredients an special preparations I don't do at home. Our server (JJ) was efficient, informed, polite, accommodating.
The plates were beautifully presented. And best of all, super delicious.
Can't wait to get back. Note: it was expensive, but we feel well-worth it.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial PlaceWhat a special place! Burwell's had so many unusual and enticing selections, we wanted to come back before we even ordered! We all chose the Wagyu Steaks and a Kangaroo Loin. Never thought I'd try that, and so glad I did. It was excellent. Service was so pleasant and guided along the menu and evening. We will be back. Great job Burwell's for creating a special place and making our night.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you're looking for a solidIf you're looking for a solid steakhouse with unique preparation then Burwell's is your spot. The wait staff is well trained and along with the kitchen accommodating for off menu service. Now for the main course. Steaks cooked on a 700F stone at your place setting is not only unique but the steak itself in top grade. My only suggestion to the kitchen is to expand their choice of salads. Desserts are house made and we ordered the smores with the marshmellows made in house. Perfect cap to a fine meal4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm not a big fan of "SteakI'm not a big fan of "Steak Houses" because they often over promise and under deliver. The steaks here (cooked over a wood fired grill) were excellent. Side dishes are reasonably priced and while big enough for sharing they are not to the point of being ridiculous which allows you to try several different items. The rutabaga and turnip mash was very interesting and delicious.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMowner-Operator John Thomasowner-Operator John Thomas and staff are wonderful hosts and are there to provide the consummate dining experience for their guests.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal dinner with a phenomenalPhenomenal dinner with a phenomenal price tag! The food was fantastic although I still think the prices were very steep. We had a party of 14 and everyone's steaks with the exception of one person, came out as ordered. The one that was over cooked, they immediately took back and brought out a beautiful steak done just right. The side dishes were great; love the brussel sprouts. The roof top bar was wonderful and the mixologist new how to please his customers. A wonderful night. If the bill wasn't so high, I'd be a regular... :)4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an amazing experienceWe had an amazing experience at Burwell's last Saturday evening. We had had a busy day & I had pretty much lost all desire to go out. But the sitter was on her way. I only desired a quiet, relaxing dinner. When we walked in I wanted to turn & walk out. It was loud & busy. We were promptly greeted & whisked upstairs to a private & much quieter table. We celebrate our monthly anniversaries, Husband had let them know (it slipped my mind as I was only thinking of the yearly). They brought glasses of champagne & gave very attentive service. Food was excellent. We have eaten at many steakhouses across the US & yet, Burwell's fillet (a special that evening), was the best we have had! Cedar planked crab cake & asparagus w/ egg were also delicious.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe met old friends are Burwell'sWe met old friends are Burwell's for drinks and dinner and has a great time. We started out on the roof top bar and lounge for some delicious cocktails and terrific atmosphere. The rock candy appetizer was fantastic. Thin cuts of steak cooked on a small stone at your table, with a port wine and Gorgonzola sauce that was awesome. Our party had 3 of the catch of the day(flounder) and a land and sea(filet and lobster) and we all thoroughly enjoyed out meal. Desert was a 20 layer crepe( not as big as it sounds ) that was a perfect compliment to our meal. Great staff, great atmosphere and great food. I absolutely recommend Burwell's to anyone as a great place to spend and evening!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen ever I am down town IWhen ever I am down town I like to make Burwell's my place to dine.

Hamburgers are one of the best I have ever eaten!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI live in the neighborhoodI live in the neighborhood and have tons of great choices. Burwells has been on my list of new places to try and it did not disappoint. Ambiance, service, food and presentation were outstanding. Super helpful, super happy from the manager to the bar and table staff. Everyone seemed genuinely interested in making certain we felt welcome and had a great experience..........and we did!
I was also very impressed that a member of the management team called me yesterday to follow-up. THAT doesn't happen often!!
No previous establishments seem to have been able to make the location work for them for very long. Hopefully, Burwells is there to stay!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGo.This was our second time and a first for two friends who went with us.
Everyone's food was great. Our waiter, Eric, took great care of us and understood the menu as well as how to make sure we had an enjoyable evening.
Although the menu is pretty meat-oriented, one of our party was a vegetarian and there was no problem at all with accommodating.
The food it great. Definitely go.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful, eclectic, romanticA wonderful, eclectic, romantic place to eat!! We ordered the filets that are served on the stone fire grill with several dipping sauces on the side....it was wonderful!! Definitely recommend ordering this! Our waiter was so helpful in making suggestions from the menu. Everything we had was wonderful!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant was busy and prettyRestaurant was busy and pretty noisy but mgt was excellent about honoring reservation request for a quieter spot and seated us upstairs. The food was really good. Cooking on the hot stone was a great experience and really fun. Perfect for a first date because it is a great ice breaker since you are actually "doing something". Meat was great and cooked perfectly. Pretty upscale place and server did a great job. I brought someone here for a business meeting and it worked out great. Downstairs was pretty lively and noisy. I will definitely go back on my personal time. Overall, a great first experience. Would recommend definitely.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch at BurwellsEaster brunch was well done! Being one of the last groups of the day we were treated like the first! Friendly and courteous, knowledgeable and helpful with the menu recommendations. Our group enjoyed the beneticts, create your omlettes, Burwells special and sandwiches. Everything was delicious and portions were great. My only comment was the bread basket should have more in it for $7. Thank you for a nice holiday!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMNow open for brunchJust opened for brunch and we tried it. Nice menu options. Steak and eggs featured heart of ribeye done just as ordered.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful wait staff and greatWonderful wait staff and great food -- a great combination3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMNice sport in CharlestonsNice sport in Charlestons Market area to get a good steak, not a touristy meal.

To stop by and check on us. Highly recommend .3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything about this restaurant,Everything about this restaurant, from the concept to the service to the food was phenomenal! So glad I spent my birthday here!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMike McCormack - CharlestonThis was my 3rd visit to Burwell's and it continues to impress me. The menu has some slight changes (for the good) and the service is excellent. I had a filet that was cooked perfectly.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service. The kitchenExcellent service. The kitchen accommodated some special dietary needs for us. The food was beautifully presented, the flavors well combined. We went 3 nights in a row!! Beef, chicken and salmon/sea bass were all delicious, and prepared to our special requests. Interesting vegetable sides were offered, something a bit out of the ordinary in selection, again with different spices in their preparation. I can hardly say enough - the teamwork of the staff was obvious and everyone seemed happy to be working together. The owner/managers introduced themselves to us even on our first night. This restaurant is a real gem!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good. Highly efficientVery good. Highly efficient service. Amazing service.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGood fancy food. DefinitelyGood fancy food. Definitely on the expensive side but great preparation of everything. Would recommend it for the deep pocket spender or just a special occasion for a average couple.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food. Good service.Brought my wife here for our wedding anniversary. I used OpenTable to make the reservation and in the comments section, noted it was our anniversary and I hoped they would make my wife feel like it was a special night and that even the restaurant knew about our special day. I realize the comments section (when making the reservation) warns that "not all requests can be accommodated" or something to that effect, but it seemed to me they didn't even read it. We were seated very quickly (had a 6:45pm reservation, but got right in at 6:30pm), all the staff were friendly and courteous, and the food was very good. My wife's steak was a bit too charred on the outside, but was cooked just right inside and very tasty. Overall, we enjoyed it.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA nice eveningMy wife and I celebrated her birthday at Burwell's and had a very nice evening. We had reservations and arrived about 10 minutes early. We were taken to our table right away. It was a table for two with plenty of room for seating and table area. We started with an appetizer of steak pieces that we cooked center table on a stone that had been heated to 700 degrees. A novel idea. The steak for the most part flavorful and tender. My wife had one piece that she could not eat because of grissle running through it. I would have hoped that when paying for an appetizer that is served in pieces for preparation by the patron, that the pieces served might be inspected a little bit more closely. Dinner and dessert were good but not notable.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
