Celebrated our 37Th anniversary. Great atmosphere, food and service.
Romantic place! Great food. The restaurant decoration is so pretty
Great historical ambiance! Excellent service and food! We will be back!!
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!
Always one of my favorite restaurants. Food is superb!
Great service, varied selection for dinner, will return.
Had an anniversary dinner there this week and everything was great. Service, food, etc. was top notch.
We had a nice meal.
The overall experience was delightful. The host, servers and mangers were first class. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.
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..

Despite the COVID-19 precautions, everything was perfect.
Beautiful location, excellent service and drinks food!
Crispy Flounder is the best dish in Charleston!
The flounder is outstanding, skip circa go to Ansons..outstanding!
The flounder and cowboy steak were the best. The evening was made complete by the service of our waiter, Darnell. Above and beyond
Food was so delicious my boyfriend said it was one of the best meals he ever had. My dinner was so delicious I am still thinking about it! I wish we had this restaurant in Florida!!!
Loved the whole flounder! It was AMAZING. Service and atmosphere were really great. Highly recommend!
Excellent food and wines. The staff was great. The prices for a bottle of wine was very reasonable. I will definitely go back for dinner on our next visit
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.
Our server Darnell, was great! My shrimp and grits were amazing. Would go again!
Amazing food and service. Would highly recommend.
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.
Menu was more limited, due to COVID-19. Everything we ordered was average.
Amazing! Highly recommend! Great food! Must have the fried green tomatoes! The chocolate bread pudding was also amazing!
Each time we come here, we are never disappointed. We always come for a birthday or special occasion and the service is perpetually immaculate. If we could give them more stars, we would.
Fantastic!! The food was amazing and the service was impressive as well. I would highly recommend Anson to anyone wanting a wonderful meal.
We had a very enjoyable meal and the service was excellent.
What a wonderful gem in Historic District...uses only local fare...all was delightful.
Wife’s Birthdays, awesome..best in Charleston
Great food and service. We will be back!
Excellent and friendly service, the steak was cooked perfectly, and the dessert was amazing! Great overall experience!
