We had not been to Anson in a long time and really enjoyed it. The crispy flounder was delicious. We shared the fried green tomato appetizer and fried okra. Others had steaks and raved about them. We also had desserts. The almond baskets and chocolate bread pudding are great. The service was perfect.

This was my first visit and I must say that I was very impressed. We dined on the second level and the ambiance was awesome. The food was great and the service was second to none! I will definately recommend to anyone looking for a fine dining experience.

Excellent service and excellent food. We were celebrating a birthday, and everyone made us feel special. Our experience was enhanced by the effort to socially distance and all employees wore masks properly. Four in our group of five ordered the whole fried flounder, which was great, as usual. I would have preferred an alternate side--we all got cole slaw, and I did not touch it because I did not like it. The shrimp and grits appetizer was wonderful as was the fried green tomatoes. My son ordered the mahi mahi and he said it was very good.

We were upstairs and, therefore, a little more quiet. Waitress was outstanding. Great night to celebrate graduation!

My wife and I ate there on our last night in Charleston. Our server was Will. He did a phenomenal job and we took him up on the offer of two of the nightly specials. We were not disappointed. I would highly recommend Anson to anyone. We will be back..

Both the service and good were great. It’s nice when you ask for a quiet table and actually get one. I had the she crab soup and shrimp and grits. My husband the same soup and the fried chicken. Both were excellent.

Just go. Make your reservation and go. Treat yourself to good food in excellent company. Well you might have to bring your own company but the food is excellent. We made our reservation online and showed up on time. EASY. The restaurant is right by the market and is also very close to a horse carriage stop. We ate upstairs in the dining room but they also had a romantic balcony if you fancy to sit outside. We learned that ANSON is associated with the Pink Room in Savannah which is also fabulous. Back to Charleston... We both ordered the She Crab Soup and the Shrimp & Grits this time. The soup was absolutely magnificent ! small portion but well worth it. The Shrimp & Grits was also very good. We ended our meal with a chocolate bread pudding with some vanilla ice cream. Did I say stuffed? We tried two different wines which were both by the glass and excellent. What else can you ask for and also... What are you waiting for? GO!

Great Place! Manager was very appreciative and helpful. Don’t underestimate the fried green tomatoes or the okra; wonderful appetizers. The steaks were seasoned and cook to perfection.

Great place for a date, special occasion or just a nice evening out.

The downstairs seating isn't special by any means, but that would be my only critique. You would be hard pressed to find a better Shrimp and Grits in the city. It was so good, that my girlfriend that hates grits, really wished that she had ordered it. They hand mill the grits in house, and then cook them for 5 hours before serving them.
The staff was warm, and engaging. Overall it was a great experience.

Amazing meal, service, and atmosphere! From being greeted by the most jovial host to the last bite of dessert, we had the best evening! We all 3 ordered different meals and they were all delicious! And we ordered 4 (!) desserts and loved all of them! It was so nice to get out again and felt very safe.
