    Prepare to be "wowed" by not only the food presentation, attentive service, and seasonally-specific menu, but you will surely be jolted by the overwhelmingly scrumptious burst of flavor and textures from your plates. Well done, Burwell's. My only gripe would be that we don't have this restaurant close enough to our home.

    If you want food that's the same old same old, then this place is not for you. Be ready for a surprising compendium of flavors that will tease your taste buds. The Holy City Hog was new to the menu when we ate there and it provided a rich and unusual treatment of pork. Interestingly, the dish was even more tasty the next day as a cold snack! The steaks were very good, as well. Be forewarned, however, that ice cream desserts may challenge you--butter pecan, for example, has a bacon/smokey flavor. If you're all about sweets and tradition, you won't like this. The peach upside-down cake had a very nice texture and taste.

    Steaks were wonderful, melt in you mouth. Mashed potatoes were very light and fluffy. The service was very personable from the waitress to the manager. They made our anniversary very special, even wrote Happy Anniversary on our dessert dish in chocolate. The plating was beautiful. We are new locals and this is our new favorite restaurant. We will definitely eat there again.

    Although the ambiance is very nice at Burwell's, the food just isn't worth the price. Three at our table had the Wedge Slice salad - one of my all time favorite salads. No blue cheese dressing available so had to go with house dressing. It was very bland making the salad very disappointing. Two members of our party ordered Hanger steaks, two others ordered NY strip. None of the 4 were able to eat much of their steaks. They were heavily seasoned with something unwelcoming - perhaps Cumin. Why would you season a great steak! I had the filet mignon. I had to add lots of salt and pepper to get decent flavor. Waiter was very nice and personable but the quality of service and knowledge of staff was subpar. None of us will return.

    The food was well worth the price. However, we waited about 1 hour from the time we ordered until we received our food. It was not particularly busy for a Saturday night. Our waiter was a college kid who was not very attentive to us during this time. However, the manager brought us another free drink and apologized for the slow delivery of our food. Overall great, the steak was one of the best I have ever had.

    I took my husband there for his birthday dinner and we were very pleased. It was our first time at Burwell's and we would definitely return. The deviled egg appetizers were fantastic!! My husband loved the She crab soup and our filets melted in our mouths. They brought out the dessert with Happy Birthday drizzled in chocolate on the plate..a very nice touch. Amanda was our waitress and she was awesome! We will be back!

    We enjoyed the food, cocktails, and decor of the restaurant, and that it was quiet enough for us to have a conversation without yelling. The server seemed pretty indifferent, though. We both observed that the server could have done more to sell the restaurant or get us excited about it.

    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.

    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.

    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.
