    From Mike opening the door to greet us to the very last bite, we had a great dining experience at Anson. Our server, Darnell, was super. His recommendations were perfect, especially his dessert favorite, The Almond Basket. We will definitely return.

    Everything from the service to the food was awesome! Have certainly had more expensive meals but not better. It was cool too when Bill Murray walked in with his peeps.

    I have been in the Charleston area for the past 22 years. We celebrated our 32nd Anniversary on 4/18/24 and decided to give Anson a try. I will say it was the best dinner experience we have ever had downtown. The food was amazing. The waitress was very informative and the tranquil ambience made for the perfect dinner. Five stars all the way around. I can't stop talking about how great the food tasted. We will definitely be back.

    So glad we found Anson on Opentable. It's a gem! The moment we walked in the door, we were greeted in such a way as to immediately know we were in the right place. Highly recommend the She Crab Soup, best fried green tomatoes because of the bacon jam (amazing!) and the blackened snapper was some of the best ever! Kyle provided terrific attention, service and insights into the menu. Be sure to have the pecan pie a la mode! wow!!!

    Beautiful restaurant with an incredible selection. Service was five stars. My only regret was not getting a dirty martini. Everyone else had one!
