A word from The Macintosh
The Macintosh opened in September 2011 in downtown Charleston, SC. Located downstairs from its sister lounge, the Cocktail Club, and bearing the one-time name of the alley that runs alongside the building, the Macintosh explores the breadth of Lowcountry flavors in a comfortable setting. Executive Chef and partner Jeremiah Bacon showcases his talent for creating upscale, American cooking using the seasonal bounty provided by his local farmers and fishermen throughout The Macintosh's menu.

Diner Reviews
  • "Appetizers & entrees were all top notch. Servers knowledge of food & wine exceeded our expectations! Thoroughly enjoyable experience."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Loved our server, Lauren. Also love Megan. Food is superb. I had the summer salad with a tempura squash blossom. The salad had bits of fruit and vegetables (okra) so I felt that not only was it delicious but nutritionally fabulous! I always try to find the wreck fish on the menu and this was wonderful. Only drawback is the noise level. I have been there twice when the table of eight nearby gets extremely loud. Everyone around me was talking about it. But I still love MacIntosh. They really care about their patrons!"

  • "I keep thinking about this place! We were in town from Asheville, and we consider ourselves foodies. We also own a restaurant/bar and know how difficult it can be to get everything just right. Our experience at The Mac was spot on in every way. We started with a cocktail each, then shared a gundi with pickled shrimp small plate. The gundi was divine. Hubby had the pork shoulder confit, which he thoroughly enjoyed, and he knows his pork. I had the deckle which was also delicious, but the surprising highlight for me was the grilled squash with kimchee. Loved the goat cheesecake. I felt like we needed to be rolled out on stretchers, but worth every single calorie. We will tell our friends and come back for sure."

  • "Whenever we go to Charleston,Macintosh will always be included. We have had brunch both times and loved it. Great food and staff, cute place."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Went for brunch. The Mac attack was really good and so was the chorizo entree. The cinnamon rolls with Fois gras icing... Meh. Definitely didn't do it for me personally. Service was good though and overall had a good meal, will go again for sure."

  • "King Street has blossomed with many gastropubs and Macintosh is among the best of them. Service was good but at times a bit spotty. The food is the star here. I had the Manchester quail and must say this was some of the best quail I've ever had. It was very tender and juicy, with the dried sour cherries heightening the flavor of the meat. The accompanying "dirty Brewster oats" were interesting and a change of pace from the usual wild rice served with quail. My dining partner ordered the C.A.B. burger. It arrived hot and perfectly cooked. The truffle in the fries was perfectly subtle. We shared a side of bone marrow bread pudding which was interesting take on a savory pudding. We will definitely return on our next visit to Charleston."

  • "Great food paired with local and seasonable produce. One of the only restaurants in Charleston with a true Cotes de Provence Rose on the Menu!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Overall a great dining experience. The food was phenomenal. Get the rabbit for an appetizer if it is available! They change the menu daily, which is pretty cool. I was visiting Charleston from Atlanta with my wife, and that dinner alone was worth the drive."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Went for my wife's birthday. She loved the snapper the waiter recommended. A little pricey, but it was a special occasion. Would definitely return."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Everything at the Macintosh was fantastic. The bread, the meals, the desserts, and the staff (Ross was our server) were all exactly what you would expect of a very well-respected restaurant. I will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Our reservation was during one of the FIFA World Cup games and the staff accommodated where they sat us so our children could see the game on the tv in the bar area. Food was good and everyone was pleasant and attentive."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The Macintosh was recommended to us by a Charleston native and I've got to say it's the best restaurant recommendation we've EVER gotten. Our waiter was phenomenal and the food was even better. Definitely worth the trip (we were vacationing in Folly Beach and drove over)."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • " This was our first dining experience and everyone enjoyed their meals. The pork shoulder was excellent. We will return for dinner during our next visit to Charleston, SC."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "The overall experience at the Macintosh was amazing. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. The corn salad was especially noteworthy!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "First time at The McIntosh. Amazing brunch menu. Had the "Mack Attack", never would have tried this dish without the Server's recommendation. Excellent choice!!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Went for Brunch. I had the burger which was perfect. The Fries were even better. My wife had an omelet which was good not great - mushrooms were a bit big for an omelet. Also, don't fall for the Funnel Cake on the menu - it's not as good as the state fair."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Many great brunch choices in Charleston but this is one of the best. The Mac attack is as good as it gets. Tried several items and every one was great. Must try."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We were seated promptly and the service was excellent. The chilled peach soup was delish as was the corn salad and everything else. My only complaint is that it gets loud due mostly to too many groups of women. They get cackle-ey and screechy after a few too many. Wedding season!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Really great waiter with lots of knowledge. Food was delicious but not a huge menu. Drinks were really unique and amazing."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We had an amazing time at the Macintosh. The waitress was delightful and thoughtful with her recommendations (and even at the end of the evening provided us with another superb restaurant to try for our next night out). The food was delicious, and perhaps one of the best restaurants we've been to on our many visits to Charleston. A must is the bone marrow bread pudding, which was, maybe the best thing I've ever eaten anywhere."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We had a great meal on our first visit. The pork shoulder was incredible. Drinks very good. Service was excellent. Definitely a go-back-to place."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Charleston is of course a town for foodies - and this is one of the standouts! Terrific food and excellent service made for a wonderful evening. Corn salad was super yummy - but everything really delicious."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Love the brunch menu! Delicious twist on Southern fare! Funnel cakes & grits with a flare!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Absolutely wonderful! We went to the Macintosh at the end of a lovely weekend in Charleston, and were absolutely blown away. The food (Scallops starter, CAB Decker/Grouper entrees, and Goat Cheesecake dessert) was the best we had during our trip. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful, and the ambiance was great. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys a great night out!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Very personal experience, lots of attention to US. It would be romantic, albeit it trendy decor, which is very nice, but when it fills up, it's rather noisy. We were there for a special occasion and staff did their best to make it that way. Food was over the top good. We live locally, we will be back!"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "In a town of foodies where you have to look hard to find a bad meal, there are plenty of impressive restaurants. MacIntosh is farm to table and everything is made fresh daily. Our server described the food so well that it was beyond words. From start to finish, every detail was superb!!! Flavors everywhere. Unique and new combinations were in every course. Not a bad price either for the quality and service. MUST TRY in Charleston. Some of the towns biggest restaurant names have probably already been warned that MacIntosh is a force to be reckoned with :-) Give it a try & you'll be back!"
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "The peach soup was a eclectic blend of ingredients--peaches, blueberries, heavy cream base, but with jalapenos and bacon. Sounded odd, but the combination worked. Food well prepared, portions small. Pricey. Very limited choices of wines by the glass. Limited choices of entrees, but the menu is redone daily. Excellent and attentive service. Very noisy--detracted from being a romantic place to dine."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "This was my second dining experience at The MacIntosh and was as wonderful as the first. As a real foodie, the chef is so creative with his menu and presentation that it earns 5 stars in my book. The interior of the restaurant is warm and lovely with a low noise level."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "I ate at MacIntosh when it first opened and thought it was too noisy and my meal too salty. Decided to give it a second try and am so glad I did. The food and service were excellent."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "I had the Mahi and it was the best I've ever had...have to say it oushined Husk by far this time!"
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "I love this place!! Everytime I come to town I ALWAYS stop in and have brunch on Sundays. Everything I have tried is amazing. The service is always top notch and the bottomless mimosas are always fantastic. I recommend you always start off with a Poutine or 2 and then off to the best brunch ever."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We were in the USA for two weeks and we had our best meal here. Loved the fact that the menu changes daily. Waitress knew the menu so well and was very helpful"
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Fantastic place liked it much better than Husk. It had a great menu selection and all dishes were unique. High quality all the way around. Atmosphere is great with high energy, open kitchen just a great vibe. Highly recommend for a date or a group. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The meals we had at Macintosh were incredible. Portions were reasonable, flavors were excellent, and presentation was lovely. The service was impeccable and even as the restaurant become more crowded, the noise level was not distracting. We will return!"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "And it was really good. The Macintosh kitchen turns out creativity as a staple. Every dish is built on sound technique which allows a jumping off point which often lands in playfulness. The restaurant continues to challenge the other great Charleston restaurants."

  • "We were very pleased with the Food and service we received there. We will definitely be back. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Very original, with flavors that compliment flavors that then have even more flavors. My one and only grievance is that there could be more wines offered by the glass but aside from that minor complaint the night could not have been more perfect. "

  • "Our party of 6 was very pleased with both the food and the service. We all ordered different items and all found their food to be well seasoned and delicious."

  • "Honored res great server food imaginative delicious. Will be back"

  • "We started with the drinks... watermelon special that was absolutely correct, refreshing, colorful, intriguing flavors and mildly debilitating. I so enjoyed our food, too...the scallops were cooked to perfection, as a matter of fact each of the starters was better than the next. We were three women and ordered four apps and one entre and we literally rolled out of there. I cannot recommend the restaurant highly enough."
