  • Quality Steak Experience

    We were there on a rainy Sunday evening so the crowd was sparse. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food a reasonable value for those expecting a nice a la cart price point. The steaks were cooked perfectly and seasoned nicely. The mac'n'cheese side was a bit dry and not recommended. They were generous enough to comp us a free dessert since it was a birthday and the friendly manager called us a cab to take us the few flooded blocks to our car. It was a great experience and we were thankful to have an enjoyable time for our birthday meals.

    My husband and I are foodies, especially enjoying a good steak occasionally. Visited for the first time recently to celebrate a special occasion and were not disappointed. We've always said The Oak has the best steaks in town. Well, Burwell's is as good, if not better. So tender and perfectly done. Presentation was lovely, sides were good, and our server was wonderful. She was bright and friendly and extremely knowledgeable about both the food and wine. We sat and enjoyed our meal without feeling rushed or pressured. The orange creme brulee was to die for! And the pastry chef had written Happy Anniversary in chocolate on the plate. Nice touch. We will definitely be back!

    This was our first time at Burwell's and we were not disappointed. The steaks, filet and NY strip, that we ordered were cooked to perfection and our waiter Zach was very attentive and offered great suggestions. The side dishes are very plentiful and can be easily shared with two. Looking forward to our next visit to Charleston and Burwell's.

    It was a delight to celebrate our anniversary and dine at Burwell's. Our server seemed a bit nervous, but was great. The owner was kind enough to stop by our table and talk with us. We had a quiet, comfortable place to celebrate, reflect on the past and dream of the future. The only suggestion I would have is the "surf and turf" - although delicious - offer a larger piece of lobster than that of a large, jumbo shrimp. Steak was perfect and small lobster was tender. We would like to visit again when we are in Charleston.

Our food was delectable and everything from our bread to the dessert was extremely delicious!! We were there for the Restaurant Week event and had the Prime Rib dinner. Scrumptious! Do yourself a favor and visit Burwell's on your next outing.

    There are too many good restaurants in Charleston to visit...don't go here! The service was okay, however one person at our table received her steak sliced while the other steaks were not. When asked why hers was sliced, the server said that sometimes they will use part of another steak and when they do, it comes sliced. There were several open tables and booths when we arrived and all through the time we were there, however, they sat us in the back corner with the exposed pipes and absolutely no ambiance. We will not be back!

    Burwell's is the up and coming dinning spot in Charleston. The food selection is varied and prepared exceptionally well. The steak was melt in your mouth delicious. The crab cake was one of the best I've had (and I'm from Maryland). The cheese platter, wine, salad etc. were all very good. The service was outstanding even down to splitting the dishes for those of us sharing plates. I highly recommend you try Burwell's!

    As a concierge and frequent diner I'm always looking for somewhere that's not only above par in every way during my visit, but consistent. I can say nothing but good things about Burwell's, consistently delicious and timely with service, they always have an excellent cocktail to serve up as well. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to entertain and even more highly for anyone looking to talk business over dinner as it is an excellent setting.

    We found Burwells to be a wonderful find. Colleen, out waitress, was personable and knowledgeable. I chose fro the regular menu...a fabulous filet of beef and my husband from the restaurant week specials. Neither of us was disappointed. All produce is local and the deviled eggs served with salad were wonderfully delicious. Dessert was amazing. Our dinner made our visit to Charleston more special. Valet parking was an added plus.

    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.

    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.

    We had a seat by the window which made room nice and bright. Waiter very attentive and accommodating. Cocktails were well made and generous. There is a good selection of entrees, and happily all come with some side items, so all the ala carte options are not needed. We were all pleased with the quality of our steaks and the value is great. One person did not like their side of mac and cheese (too al dente) and the waiter happily and quickly changed it for mashed potatoes which were creamy and delicious. The owner/manager also stopped by to see that we were happy. It is on the end of Market Street that is not as heavily traveled, but we are glad we found it and will return.

    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.
