Everything was amazing from the food, service, and environment! Our waiter was attentive and very kind! My husband got the Fried whole flounder and he said it was amazing! I got the filet with green beans and puréed potatoes. The steak was cooked perfectly and the sides complemented it well. We will definitely be back!

We had a great experience! The Brussels sprouts were AMAZING and we got the crispy flounder that they are known for - it was enough for my husband and me to split with two appetite for dessert. Awesome all around!

Excellent food. Excellent service. Beautiful house and atmosphere. Very loud group of people sitting next to us, made it difficult to enjoy a quiet conversation with people at my table. Would definitely go back because of the food and service. Billy (our server) was extremely friendly and attended to all requests at our table very promptly and always with a smile.

I had steak {strip). The meat was tough and stringy! Only ate half of it! The majority of my party had seafood and they enjoyed their meals.

Charming place but the only thing was why is wreckfish so expensive? $42 for 3 1/2” piece ? Pretty tasteless

This was our fifth trip to Anson for dinner over the past twenty years. We had high expectations, as we awaited more of the fabulous food from former trips.
My wife didn't need the menu, apricot glazed flounder had been on her mind for a loooong time. A few finely sliced red peppers atop the scored fish was the only difference she noted from her last dance with this dish.
I opted for a couple of starters, beginning with the she crab soup followed by the oven roasted oysters. Every spoonful of the soup was more pleasing than the one before it. I wanted to order it for dessert! The oysters though only six, were each perfectly prepared with a topping so delicate the oysters remained the star of the show.
We each ordered a creme brulee for dessert, one of the best ever I told our waiter, Darnell. The meal, as always, left us satisfied to the moon and back; and we will be back!

Excellent and friendly service, and the freshest and most flavorful entrees -- we had the local fresh caught Wreckfish, and whole Flounder. Both were prepared perfectly - looking forward to our next visit!

Billy, our waiter, was engaging and passionate. His recommendations were spot on. The only thing we would have changed is the music play list. It was too hip-hop, pop for Anson. Smooth jazz or more mellow would have been more appropriate.

Great! Consistency is important and it has been 20 years since my last visit but just as good as I remembered. Flounder is classic Charleston.
