A word from Edmund's Oast
Why Edmund's Oast?

The “Edmund” in the name comes from Edmund Egan, who began producing beer in Charleston after emigrating from England in the 1760s. "Oast” is a kiln used in the drying of hops.

Diner Reviews
  • "The rare chance to make adults-only plans with another couple, problem was that it came up on a Sunday night, when most restaurant choices are closed. My internet search revealed Edmund's Oast, and the problem ultimately was proven to be opportunity! A drink at the bar to unwind, we enjoyed specialty cocktails and 40plus beers on tap to match any personal preference. Offering a taster "sip" of the beers was a great touch, and eased our decisions. We all shared the Goat Sheep Cow cheese plate, and two small charcuterie boards, one cured, one uncured. So many carefully developed flavors, not to mention the fig jam, smoked nuts and the pickled veggies. The Heritage Chicken/Porridge and Bacon Egg Cheeseburger delighted all, we'll be back!"

  • "Everything about dining at Edmund's Oast was Outstanding! I always enjoy my visits there. The food is delicious, the service, spectacular and I personally love the atmosphere and beer/wine selections. The simplest cocktails, such as a vodka martini with a twist are some of the best I've had. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone!"

  • "Wonderful vibrant restaurant with excellent helpful staff. We had one of the best meals we've ever had in Charleston here recently and will go back soon. The small plates were a creative blend of many flavors and textures and presented beautifully. Drinks were fantastic."

  • "We were expecting to experience a good charcuterie plate, which we had heard from friends, but were delighted to sample other wonderful foods - the tuna crudo was amazing! The carrots were terrific! It was a terrific dinner from start to finish!"

  • "Excellent cocktails, beer, food and service. We have dined here several times and it is one of the best in charleston."

  • "We tried Edmund's Oast for the first time with some friends. We are all locals here in Charleston and had heard great things. The on-tap beer selection (all micro brewed) was outstanding, as well as the wine and cocktails options. For us, the food was a little too "foodie" and we felt it was overpriced. The menu is not extensive, but our server told us the menu changes daily so we may have hit an "off" night for our preferences. This would be a great spot for Happy Hour, but we probably won't return for a meal."

  • "We had reservations for two at 9:00 on a Saturday night. We arrived at 8:00 and had drinks outside. That was very nice. The food was EXCELLENT! Loved the pickled shrimp. Loved the cheeseburger. Can't wait to return!"

  • "You can go further down the peninsula and pay much more $ or you can come here for a one of a kind, delicious dinner that will delight your taste buds. In one meal I had the best cocktail, beer, and charcuterie! I love how each item on menu is thoughtfully created with familiar ingredients used in different combinations or to create a yummy flavor you wouldn't expect. This is on our regular rotation list now for special occasions, group dining, and when we want a couple small plates to share. Heck, I'd even come back just to sit at the bar and try some different beers I know I can't get anywhere else. Best of all, the staff are the nicest and the interior is beautiful. Every detail is meant to make your entire meal feel special."

  • "Had a great Saturday dinner. Food freshly prepared, all local, much innovative. My first time to eat non-tempura deep-fried heirloom carrots; they were superb. Stuck mostly to the small plates as they seemed more interesting than the mains. Despite a lot of meat on the menu, the 3 vegetarians in our group loved their meals. Excellent dessert offering; waitress even recommended something non-chocolate (peach ???? - superb). Didn't go through the beers or the wine list because my vegetarians are also non-drinkers, but both looked to be good and would enhance the experience for most people. Friendly wait staff and real buzz at the restaurant."

  • "Edmund's Oast was a different dining experience for us. The waitress (and her trainee) were most helpful and knowledgeable in explaining the menu and suggesting different beer flavors. We shared the small cured charcuterie board, goat - sheep -cow cheese plate, the pickled shrimp and of course the corn bread, and finished it off with the most amazing pistachio cookie. Every bite was absolutely delicious. We would recommend Edmund's Oast to anyone and are looking forward to going back with our sons, who are both adventurous eaters."

  • "I was really excited to go here, but despite having a reservation we had to wait 10 minutes to be seated because the hostess was confused. That would be the least of our waiting, as we hadn't dealt with our server yet! The service was the worst I've had in Charleston & it was a game of finding her all night long!! The wine list is random & the sever knew nothing about the wines by the glass when asked. The food was good, but not great & the menu isn't well rounded. We struggled to find what to order, but ended up with cheese plates & charcuterie boards. We were never offered dessert & had to flag a manager to get our check. Overall disappointing experience & I would highly recommend you try somewhere else."

  • "The food and drinks are amazing!! Everything we had was really outstanding. Our only complaint is that it is really loud. Other than that, our experience was great. They even have a lot of gluten free options, which include bread and brownies."

  • "I have been to Edmunds now 3 times for dinner and a few times for drinks. I can say that what everyone has been raving about is true. The space is incredible, the menu is amazing (& the food delivers) and the ambiance/scene/vibe is just what you want. My previous experience has been up to par with some truly great restaurants in the area, with the owner/manager/server all collaborating on a welcoming and joyous experience. They make you feel a part of what they've created. Explaining all the dishes, making recommendations etc. This particular night they were busy and the service lacked. The owners appear very hands on and I feel like this was just a fluke."

  • "Craft beer selection imaginative and plentiful. Down side was that gypsy craft beer ran out so didn't get to sample. Menu interesting and different. Ordered the smoked and fresh meet appetizers. Best chicken liver pate. Chicken porridge substantial. Tomato salad wonderful. ricotta and grilled vegetables which while nicely presented. Our server was both knowledgeable and efficient. Because our party didn't know a good deal about craft beer, I would have liked to have (and ordered if available) a beer flight. Yes, a taster is offered, but frankly, I'd have preferred to have had the option of drinking small amounts of different beers. We will return, definitely."

  • "A fantastic experience food wise ambient wise and beer wise. I have decided this is the new " go to " place in Charleston. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. The green beans are to die for, the cornbread and honey just unbelievable, the salad underneath the snapper was perhaps the best dish I've ever had. The charcuterie plates are amazing."

  • "Hands down best restaurant in Charleston. Service, food, beers---everything was outstanding."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Having read recent local and national reviews we decided to try it out for ourselves. What a nice find. While perhaps off the beaten path it's worth the trip. Beer selection is great but we were most pleasantly surprised that the food was anything but an oversight. Tried several of the small plates. Each one was better than the last and held up to their descriptions on the menu - a rarity in some establishments. If my mom would have cooked vegetables the way they were prepared here I would have eaten them as a kid. Corn bread, corn pudding, carrots are each not to be missed. as were the heirloom tomato salad, ham and melon...... Needless to say, we'll be back."

  • "This was the second time that we had Sunday Brunch. It has become one of my favorites in Charleston. Away from the downtown crowds but worth seeking out."

  • "Edmund's Oast is fantastic at all they do. On a brief Charleston vacation where I mostly go to eat Ina great food town, I had to go a second time. It is a rare occurance to have a restaurant repeated but they did it. Great beer selection, amazing charcuterie, a range of great entrees for dinner and brunch. Do not miss this gem."

  • "Loved the atmosphere. There was a large open room with tastefully decorated seating. For a beer lover this is a great place with about 48 beers on tap. After dinner, friends met us and we sat outside in the beer garden. The menu changes every night based on local catches, farm finds, etc. - a nice example of farm-to-table experience. All free range, organic, local, etc. Cured meats and cheese boards. Yum!"

  • "Menu is limited-not sure what all the hype is for. Food is decent-but seems there are many other choices in charleston. Very loud, so if your looking for quiet-not the place."

  • "We enjoyed our time at Edmund's Oast. Great Beers. Fun, easy to share, dinners. We will go back. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. They brought us the wrong beer once and said keep it and then brought another of the correct order without asking. Everyone was in a good mood. Nice night."

  • "Always eager to try the next new place in Charlesotn. Read the reviews and heeded their recommendations. Ordered the metals and chick en porridge among other dishes. None disappointed. All dishes beautifully presented, garnished, tasted ! The broth the meatballs were in was fruity, tasty, very different and unexpected and fun. Specialty cocktail menu had some new ones all tempting so must return again to try more! We will definitely be back."

  • "Unique dishes featuring farm-to-table food. Menu changes with seasons/food availability. Love to order lots of small dishes and pass around the table. Lots of unusual brews and cocktails to try, but gets pricey. Very busy on weekends but we had a quiet dinner on a Tuesday around 7. Had a minor issue with one dish and they were very accommodating. Will keep going back!"

  • "We went to Edmund's Oast on a recommendation from a friend as our last night out during a Charleston trip and were not disappointed. The food was outstanding and the menu is full of options you can share. It seemed to be a perfect setting for a group of 2, 4 or however many and meant to be a long dining experience. The noise level is just right for easy conversation with everyone else at the table. We shared a cured meat board, 4 plates and dessert between 4 people and all the dishes were excellent. The server was very knowledgeable about all the items on the menu and assisted us in choosing a good spread of foods. I will definitely be returning when next we visit Charleston."

  • "The servers were knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. The Pickled Shrimp were excellent, the Ricotta Cheese small plate fairly good. The problem with indoor seating, like the situation in many similar places Charleston, is the offensively high noise level. It is difficult for diners to enjoy being with each other. We will return after effective noise abatement features are installed."

  • "This was my first time at Edmund's Oast and it was an excellent experience. We started off with the corn bread and pickled vegetables. The honey butter with the corn bread is to die for. I haven't mentioned the best part, 45+ beers on tap and I'm not talking about bud light, coors light, etc. First off they brew their own beer, there was 3 vastly different types. The very knowledgable server helped me choose from the list. I went with the darker Breakfast at the Still-very flavorful. The entree portion sizes are great- not too big yet not too small. I will definitely return to Edmund's Oast soon. Can't wait to try all of their beers."
