    Burwells is a bit pricey, but it can be worth it. Our main entrées were good but the steak didn't wow us. It was cooked close enough to order that it worked. Our favorites where the rock candy, and some of the sides. Look forward to returning again for cocktails, the rock candy, and sides turn your happy hour.

    We were thrilled with our first (and definitely not last!) experience at Burwell's. We had friends in town who foodies and hard to please at restaurants. So I was delighted that they only had good things to say about our meal. Surf and turf did not disappoint! Our server Dave was fantastic--he was super friendly and helpful, and the timing of our dishes was on point. Only regret of the night was no gluten free rolls--need to come back and try those! We were all delighted with the wine, beer, and cocktails. Will be coming back soon. Thanks Burwell's.

    I don't know where to start. We had a bad day. On vacation, car broke down, got towed, now in shop awaiting report. We went to restaurant to see if we could get in earlier, we were starving but not serving yet, seated us at bar for happy hour. Katie the bartender, awesome! Such great southern hospitality! Introduced us to Dave the manager who was a fellow Michigander and very welcoming. Was seated on time, Cynthia our waitress was helpful and knowledgeable. Steaks were perfect and bernaise and steak sauce was superb! Exotic mushrooms are indescribably delicious! Do not miss this awesome restaurant! Everything and everyone were a well needed treat!

This is our second visit since opening, but will not return. Management walked by numerous times and did not stop by our table. Bar Keep was very friendly and talkative as well.

    Another great meal at Burwell's. We started our meal with a mint julep in the bar, as we watched The Kentucky Derby. The bartender also made a delicious "Mocktail" for me, with fruit juices and lavendar simple syrup- delicious. We each ordered a filet, served over whipped yukon potatoes and seasoned succotash made with edemame. The meat was tender, charred outside and warm, red inside. Mine was so flavorful that no sauce or condiment was needed. My dining partner enjoyed a light bernaise sauce which he said enhanced but did not overpower the flavor of his filet. Our server was helpful and knew the menu well.

    I went with a group from work and we all loved it. The evening special was a Palmetto Filet (locally raised, all natural) and it was excellent. I always prefer to eat locally sourced food and several of us at the table ordered this special and were very impressed. Hopefully it will continue to be offered! The Blueberry Mint Smash was also a hit with the table - not to be missed!

    We ordered the Flight of Flavor app. and it was fun to cook the meat ourselves! My boyfriend ordered the bone-in-rib-eye with a side of asparagus, both tasted amazing! The asparagus tasted very fresh. I ordered the scallops, which didn't look very appetizing when it arrived, but the first few bites were pretty good. It was different..but after a while I realized that I could only eat a few bites-it wasn't very good :( The manager was very apologetic and said he'd take it off the menu. I ordered a side of mozzarella mac n cheese which was very good! We got a complimentary dessert for my boyfriend's birthday. Overall the staff was very professional and attentive and we enjoyed the meal! I will definitely be going back again soon.

    Another great dining experience in Charleston. We are local and do our best to try new places as much as possible. Burwells is relatively new located where Market St. hits the port. Service was great, the setting was great, and the food was fantastic. The steak was cooked perfectly and could be cut with a butter knife. This place has great bar options both inside and outside. Just from my experience, I hope this place stays successful because the Charleston restaurant scene is no place for the faint of heart. Thanks for a great dinner Burwell's!

    Great renovation job of two adjoining restaurants, but that's where any accolades must end. Wife and I both had steaks - supposedly their specialty. Would rate the food itself mediocre at best. She crab soup was not hot enough and fairly unappetizing as presented - about the worst tasting I have had locally. The strip steak was somewhat chewy with some odd fat here and there - didn't really look or eat like a strip. Service was OK, but the pace was a bit hurried. Very good wine at a reasonable price. We do NOT recommend.

    Had the Deckle, which is listed as an appetizer, as my meal. It is served raw and you cook it on a 700 degree stone. Very flavorful piece of meat and you cook it how you want it. There is 7oz of meat so with a side and a salad made for a great meal. My Wife and Son had the Filet cooked medium rare. The filet was heavily smoked and tasted more like a brisket, they prefer a more traditionally cooked Filtet. I would highly recommend the Candy Rock (Deckle) as your meat and the Brussel Sprouts as your side.

    We ordered the crab cake to start and it was excellent. Full of crab and not all breading. I ordered the filet mignon and you could cut it with a bread knife. Delicious. My husband ordered the salmon and said it was excellent. Our server Amanda was amazing. She helped us navigate through the menu with suggestions etc.. Our only negative was the noise level. We were seated in a small room with several large parties and the more drinks they had the louder they got. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends. On site valet parking was a plus for $4.00.

    For a place known for the steaks, the steaks were a let down. Not bad, just not great. We were told a steak knife wasn't necessary because they were so tender. However, we found the steaks to be tough. The salads and sides were very good. If the steaks had lived up to the hype, it would have been an outstanding dining experience. The only reason I rated this place a 3 is due to the steaks. All other food was a 5. Service was very good. We found our waiter Alan to be very friendly and made some great suggestions.

    I took my mom here when she was in town & everything was delicious! Her steak came out a little under-cooked for her liking (she likes it pretty much like boot leather haha) & we sent it back to cook more. It wasn't a big deal to us since we know most people don't like it that done. The owner came over later to apologize & make sure all was okay. Again, we assured him we were perfectly fine & all the food was amazing. The most surprising aspect of all this is that I received a voicemail a couple of days later to follow up on everything from our dinner. That to me says a lot about their level of service. I had already known that I would be back as I always have a great meal there, but taking the time to reach out like that sealed the deal.
