Diner Reviews
  • "They immediately recognized that my steak had been overcooked and their service recovery was excellent. Food was well prepared and very good."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "We live in Charleston and only gave this place a try because it was the College of Charleston move in weekend and most restaurants of any note were already booked. There were 6 in our party and every item we ordered was disappointing or just plain awful, save one steak. We are foodies and eat out often. We ordered several bottles of wine, many appetizers and six main courses. One app was not even edible. When we arrived the restaurant was mostly empty, but For some reason they still seated us with a view of the back area of the kitchen. Not the open kitchen, but the inter workings of the restaurant. Can't imagine why that is on view in any case. There are many wonderful restaurants in our beautiful city, but this is not one of them."

  • "Unique approach to steak that works extremely well....we had the bone in Ribeye and T Bone....both steaks were amazing but the T Bone was the best...."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "My husband and I celebrated my birthday there Saturday night. Best piece of steak we have ever had. He had the bone in ribeye and I had the filet. Needless to say, we will be back!"

  • "Burwells was excellent. The steak is fantastic. The exotic mushrooms are a wonderful add on to any meal. I would highly suggest their signature appetizers in particular the filet mignon fingers. Only complaint i had was the service was good not great."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "We had a dinner with six adults and I heard that the steaks were the best that they have had in years! Nice job! Restaurant was a little loud but server was outstanding!"

  • "The steak is omg. Pretty penny but we'll worth it. Great service and good atmosphere. Wasn't that noisy until our group came. Sorry about that but great times and great restaurant."

  • "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!"

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Burwell's. It all started with a very delicious martini (can't remember the name)!! She crab soup had a great taste!! We also ordered the shrimp and grits appetizer - great twist of flavor!! Our steaks were sooooo good!! And enjoyed another delicious martini!! Our server was very nice and attentive!! The bartender was a lot of fun to talk with and cut up with!!"

  • "Great find! Vibrant atmosphere. Not a place for a romantic, intimate dinning. Bar was great place for before or after dinner drinks. Food and service spot on. I would go back again."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We went to Burwell's for our anniversity. We had never been there and we found the wait staff extremely friendly. The food was excellent and we enjoyed the bottle of wine. We got there at the end of happy hour and had one of their special cocktails which was very good and different. I would dine here again"
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The restaurant is new and the food was good, expensive and the cheese plate we ordered was very good but not much cheese. It is worth visiting."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "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!"

  • "Loved loved loved this place! I had filet mignon with asparagus and fried egg. Then I splurged on dessert and received a very pleasant surprise - it was made from cocoa puff cereal. All I can say about this place is OMG!!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience from cocktails to dessert. The wine was exceptionally good and the server (Taylor) was first rate."

  • "Our party of 4 was vacationing from Cleveland. Although the food was amazing, it was brought to our table lukewarm at best."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Our group enjoyed phenomenal service and food while dining at Burwells. From the moment we walked in the door we were greated by a friendly hostess and seated promptly ( we had reservations). For dinner everything from our appetizers, drinks, and entrees were delicious. The service was impeccable! We will return to this restaraunt when in Charleston."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We requested a special (quiet) experience to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary and Burwell's far surpassed our exceptions. Allan's greeting was warm and sincere. We felt that we were regulars rather than first timers. The menu choices wide and wonderful. The filets were perfectly prepared. All of the staff knew it was a special night for us and made it that way without a lot of noise. Our dessert plate even had Happy Anniversary inscribed in chocolate on it. If you are looking for a special place, try Burwell's and let them know what you are celebrating. They will celebrate with you especially if your servers are Allan and/or Mickey. After celebrating many anniversaries in Charleston, Burwell's has roared to the top of our list."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "We had never heard of Burwell's until we saw it on Open Table and decided to try it. It was AMAZING! The filet was so tender my knife just slid right through. The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. My husband had the chef's special for the day, chuck steak, that was the best he's ever had. The manager came by to check on our dinner. He was super friendly and made us feel like he really cared. It was well worth every penny! We will definitely come again!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Had such a wonderful meal on our first visit, returned again while in Charleston. Our waitstaff was very attentive and knew the menu, cocktail list and wine list well. Taylor B. provided us with excellent service throughout the evening. Steaks were cooked to each of our preferences with great flavor. Will return again when back in Charleston."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "I've eaten at a number of highly reviewed steakhouse-type of restaurants like Peter Luger in Brooklyn. My wife and I both believe that had the best steaks of our lives at Burwell's. Service was excellent, they were great with our 9 and 7 years olds who raved about their pasta, and the ambiance was very enjoyable. We will definitely be back if we return to Charleston."

  • "We went to Burwell's for our 13th Anniversary. We had never been but all reviews seemed very good. Everything was excellent from the moment we arrived to the time we left. Staff was awesome, food was excellent and steaks cooked perfectly. Location was perfect as well. Will definitely look forward to going again sometime soon."

  • "Near the outdoor Market. So glad we tried. Our server, I believe Meredith was excellent. She really knew the menu and source, noting the local farms where all of the food was obtained. If you love steak, must try! Many atypical cuts. Server recommended one my son ate and I finished it! My husband said better than his filet. She said it would be. Made me hot out of oven gluten free rolls. A first! Never tasted food so fresh. Creative drinks. Muddle their own fruit. Even Shirley temple was done with fresh blueberries. Will miss this place. Must try. Only downside, a bit noisy but we were near a large table."

  • "We went in on the spur of the moment and happened to be seated in Michael's section. Michael has reaffirmed that good service is not dead! He was very knowledgeable about each of the dishes served and made great suggestions. What really impressed me was that when my daughter made a simple, passing request for some honey mustard, which the restaurant didn't have. He took it upon himself to whip up a batch for her. And it was probably the best honey mustard I've ever had. I know it sounds simple, but those are the touches that make me a restaurant evangelist. My daughter was fine. Yet when he produced the honey mustard for her, her face lit up. We would have had a great meal and experience even if he hadn't made it. Go there!"
