We make a point of dining at Anson’s every visit to Charleston. Beautiful atmosphere, amazing service and food never disappoints! Someone in our party always gets the signature whole flounder. This time I choose the Shrimp & Grits. They were the best I have ever had! I couldn’t save room for dessert!

Anson is our favorite restaurant in Charleston. The service and food are excellent. You are greeted warmly when you enter and you’re thanked genuinely when you leave.

From the beautiful entrance to the last bite of dessert, we were beyond pleased of every part of our dinner here. The GM was very friendly as we entered and easily struck up conversation. Our waitress was also friendly and very knowledgeable. She made some recommendations that we typically wouldn’t of tried but based on her suggestions we tried them all. So glad we did! We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a unique new place to try.

Had a great dinner and everyone was so friendly. Even the other diners! Food was very good, but if you are a heavy eater, get an appetizer and/or a dessert because dinner will not be enough for you.

Amazing service but the drink menu left us wanting more. Food was great but the she crab soup was sub par (came to Charleston looking for oysters and She Crab soup). I enjoyed the experience and cannot compliment the service enough.

This was our second visit to Anson because our first visit was simply outstanding. This time, while the service was fine and the ambience, etc. was as the last time, the food was a bit less than outstanding.

We had a wonderful experience. Our waiter Jackson was very helpful and friendly.
We wanted to especially try their shrimp and grits and boy did we enjoyed it. We had shrimp and grits at different places in Charleston and Anson’s was our favorite!
The fried green tomatoes were absolutely delicious and the seared scallops amazing.
All around a fantastic culinary experience!

We were in town visiting & stumbled upon this gem! The food was one of the best we had in Charleston. The decor is southern chic. The staff were very gracious and thanked us many times for coming. I highly recommend the beet salad, whole fried flounder, and creme brûlée. Restaurant has an impressive wine selection. Recommend you make reservations via opentable.

We had a glorious time at Anson’s. We love the flounder and okra and the special was an outstanding veal chop cooked to perfection. We picked Anson’s for our 42 anniversary celebration because the food is exceptional, the service is impeccable and Mike always makes you feel at home! Thank you

Wonderful food and service! This restaurant has its own quaint personality with a touch of mystery. The second floor has gorgeous chandeliers and beautiful antique mirrors.
We were 45 minutes too early for our reservation, but the host had no problem seating us early, he just asked to give him a few minutes and voila' before you know it we were seating down at our table.

Everything was delicious! Hands down the BEST fried green tomatoes in Charleston. I know that’s a bold statement, but it’s a tasty fact! We were a party of three, and ordered a variety of dishes from appetizers to desserts; everything was a hit. Seriously, each plate was wiped clean! Anson is a must! I’m already looking forward to coming back.

The overall experiene was good. The restaurant upstairs was very noisy and very hard to hear conversations at our table. The food was good. The portions were not large especially for the price. Would we go there again or recommend it, no we would not. We had much higher expections based on previous reviews.

Great restaurant. For my appetizer I had the roasted oysters - AMAZING. For my meal I had the cashew crusted grouper, broccolini, and smashed potatoes. Excellent meal. The creme brulee for dessert was also excellent. I had Moscato D'Asti wine and it was very sweet which I love. Would highly recommend.
