    We dined at Burwell's on Aug 30th with out of town guests, we haven't stopped talking about our visit since. The service was great, food delicious and the staff created a very welcoming atmosphere. I live locally so I can't wait to go back. You can't go wrong at Burwell's.

    Thanks open table for helping me find this restaurant. It was FNTASTIC! My wife and I enjoyed every dish. The Starks were perfect and the sides were delicious. Great service and wonderful atmosphere. In an area where parking is a premium, they have valet parking, and although it's not free, it's cheaper than the alternative. Great wine list.

    Of all the most unusual cooking experiences, the hot stone is the most intriguing. I am the chef in this appetizer becoming excellent or not. The cuts of meat were extremely flavorful as one would expect from a restaurant noted for quality steaks. Our waiter made every attempt to satisfy our needs and did a masterful job of it. We would definitely return to try a different entree because they all were appealing.

We had the s'mores for dessert which were so amazing and the chef wrote Happy Anniversary on the plate in chocolate sauce! It was perfect.

    Taking friends to dinner to a restaurant you've never been to can be chancy, but we had a superb experience at Burwell's last Friday night. No doubt, the stone method of cooking our steaks made each of them perfect. They were succulent and memorable. We had a great dinner and hope to return to Burwell's soon!

    Great food, good service, a liitle loud but most restaurants these days seem to be. There was a delay in the kitchen on our entrees that created a significant wait time. The manager visited us numerous times and comped us desserts. It was a special night for my daughters and I, which they went out of their way to make right. A nice restaurant.

    Very flavorful food. Unique sides (mashed rutabaga). Great mushroom side. Fabulous beef. Tasty seafood. Very good desserts. Nice bar area too. At the end of north Market just past the noisy oyster, you could easily walk right by without realizing it. Stop in and give them a try. Very, very attentive service and visible cooking area adds a nice touch. Rooftop bar too

    We had a great dinner here. We were early for our reservation, so we went upstairs to their rooftop bar. There's not much of a view, but it was nice to sit outside and enjoy a drink. The bar staff was great. We opted to eat upstairs because we wanted a booth and all of the booths in the main downstairs restaurant were taken. We did not specify this in our reservation request, so request a booth if you want one. I also think the noise level was a little quieter upstairs, so if you want more of an energetic atmosphere, sit downstairs. Our steaks were great and the staff was attentive. Great location with parking nearby.

    Burwell's was great from the moment we walked in. My wife and I have been to most fine dining restaurants around town and this one is definitely up there with some of the better one's. Our server, Taylor was there immediately to greet us and take our drink orders. Her recommendations on the cocktails were spot on. Our meals were prepared perfectly and cooked to our liking, and the peach creme brulee was excellent. We look forward to coming back and bringing family with us.

    My husband and I took our youngest daughter (she's 23) to Burwell's for her birthday and we were so impressed! We got there early and had a drink at the bar....the bartenders were very knowledgeable, friendly and the service was excellent. Our reservations were at 7:00 pm and we were seated right on time. Our waitress knew the menu and specials very well and gave us some excellent advice on ordering. We sampled several appetizers and had one of the steak specials and each dish was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. My daughter is somewhat of a foodie and she said that she will be going back regularly! My husband and I agree, Burwell's Stone Fire Grill is definitely one of our new favorite places to dine!

    Poor, unconcerned service. She- crab soup was strange and didn't have sherry that we could tell. When they don't list anything that accompanies your steak, they mean NOTHING is on the plate with the steak! Naked steak plate! Not presented nicely! Meat was just okay. All of ours were over cooked! The place was so loud, we couldn't wait to get out of there! We were crowded, too, so there was nothing good about Burwells!

    We came here to celebrate an anniversary after a good recommendation from a friend. It was easy to get the reservation we wanted and it wasn't very crowded. The appetizer (she-crab soup) was amazing, but we found that unless you paid for the more expensive cuts of meat, the food wasn't very impressive. Since the steaks come with literally nothing, we ordered side dishes. The sides were awesome and probably the best part of the whole meal. Overall, I've had much better steaks for cheaper prices elsewhere. If I wanted to spend this kind of money for dinner, there are way too many good restaurants downtown for me to choose this one again.

    My fiance and I both had the Bistro Filet, fritas, and mac and cheese. Everything was delicious. The reduced balsamic dressing that was on the steak made the tender meat have a subtle sweet taste. The environment was quiet and the lighting had a soothing dimness to it, but was not overly dark or bright.

    Great location! Delicious meal! One of the best tasting steaks ( 8 oz. fillet) ever. Our waitress was great! Very knowledgeable and helpful in ordering. The whole staff was very attentive. Overall, service was excellent, even with a full house. We did not feel rushed at all. The meal was a bit pricey for my budget, but I felt we got our money's worth. I ordered a side dish that was probably a great dish, but too spicy for my taste. The waitress insisted on deducting it from our bill. When we return to Charleston, we will make dinner at Burwell's a must.
