Per usual, Leah our server who we request every time, was phenomenal. Request her, she’s great.
Extraordinary food and service at this Charleston staple.
This spot is a hidden gem. It's an old classic in Charleston with a beautiful setting. I highly recommend the fried green tomatoes and the mashed potatoes. Their wine list is phenomenal and extensive. With an ideal location and plenty of parking, it's a great spot to meet with friends, have a reception, or have a date.
What a gem. Moved to Charleston 3 years ago and somehow missed coming to Anson. I will be back. The food was excellent. Went with 5 others and everyone liked their selection. Steak was cooked perfectly with delicious fries. Calamari apps and Shrimp and garlic with bread crumbs app were wonderful.
This is a great find and a very good restaurant. Service was also spot on.
Flounder was outstanding but salmon was dry. The elk room without a fireplace and little ambience. WOuld only visit if in upstairs front room.
We will definitely be back! Server was knowledgeable, food beverages great...celebrated my birthday, which most places no longer do, made it extra special.
First time here... Came for restaurant week. Food was excellent.
Server amazing .. food excellent ... will be back !
AMAZING FOOD! great service & process with reserving the table.
Always great food and service. Our favorite place to dine n Charleston. We have never been disappointed.
Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. Great service and delicious food. Salad with burrata cheese was exceptional.
Could have been slightly more sophisticated in meal offerings
Everything is always great. Get the French onion soup if you like!
Also the Crispy Flounder is wonderful.
We were greeted right away and seated upstairs. The dining room was beautiful. Very charming.
We had the whole flounder, filet mignon, both excellent. The flounder was the best ! Never had it fried like that. Calamari app with pork belly was amazing. Best of all our server Jonathan was perfect. Thank you again Jonathan for a wonderful evening!

Perfect in every way! Wonderful meal and service! Phil works very hard! Will be back soon.
Excellent experience overall!
Great food. Excellent staff. I gave special reservation requests and they followed them perfectly.
Great meal with great service. I highly recommend the crispy flounder entree. Anson is a hidden gem.
Went based on 5stars. Also had pic of baked oysters on website page and called and they said they didn’t have but if I were coming, after talking to chef, got oysters to the restaurant and we had 2 dozen amazing Breadcrumb and Parm oysters. She crab soup incredible - be ready very rich and creamy (as it should be). We were a bit suspect of the house signature dish - pics on website of fried scores flounder- but it was amazing!
Great choice def rec!.. great staff as well
It was an absolutely lovely experience. Everyone at the table raved about their food. The calamari appetizer that we shared was a particular hit. And the fried green tomatoes were the best we’ve ever had. We sat upstairs and the dining room ambiance was elegant and refined and perfect for the occasion. Definitely on our list of places to return whenever we come back to Charleston. Thank you.
Needed a last minute reservation for New Years Eve 2020 for my family of 5. A quick google search for restaurants close to our hotel showed Anson’s had availability. With no other options, and seeing the she-crab soup on the menu, I figured we’d give it a try. We were blown away! The ambience was perfect for a special celebratory dinner with my crew. Would be perfect for a romantic evening for two as well. Arriving early, we were immediately accommodated and seen to our table. Our server Leah was so friendly and informative about the night’s specials and offered fantastic advice as to menu selections. The she-crab and French onion soups were amazing. At Leah’s suggestion, my husband ordered the flounder and our entire family agreed it was the best dish on the table. Which says a lot, since the duck, cowboy rib-eye and filet mignon were phenomenal. Do not miss out on the mashed potatoes, my adult daughter couldn’t stop talking about them hours later. Pecan pie put my own to shame. Anson’s is truly an exceptional spot and one I know we will be visiting again and again.
I had heard good things about Anson, and what I heard was correct. The service was absolutely excellent, and the food was delicious. It is an upscale restaurant, but not “super” upscale. If you are celebrating or just looking for a great place to have dinner and a cocktail, Anson will not disappoint.
Darnell our wonderful waiter was awesome! Great personality... service and restaurant ambiance great! Definitely will dine there again! Thank you for a wonderful end of 2020!
Served me Top Sirloin vs Filet...
Amazing experience. The flounder is a must!
Great will be back
Visiting from New York City on what would have been the week we were to be married. Fresh off a horse and buggy ride around Charleston, we were the first guests to arrive shortly after 5:00 PM. Immediately greeted and escorted to our table. The "perfect", perfect Manhattan from the bartender. Appetizers were delicious: calamari special and acorn squash. Followed by the most moist and delicious fried chicken (we were in the South) and a perfectly grilled Rib Eye steak. Pecan Pie ala mode for dessert. Oh, and I forgot to mention to two bottles of Franco Serra Nebbiolo that paired wonderfully with our menu choices from start to finish. We will be back. If you have a night out in Charleston planned in the new future, make a reservation and enjoy all that Anson has to offer you during your visit.
Fabulous meal. The food, service and atmosphere where excellent.
Awesome food, great hospitality
Our first visit to Charleston and so glad we chose Anson for our Christmas Dinner! Friendly staff, delicious food and great atmosphere in an historic building which was nicely decorated for the holidays! Host thanked us several times for dining with Anson and stopped by tableside to be sure everything was prepared to our liking. Delicious, tender filet prepared to our requests, and loved the baked French Onion Soup and garlic smashed potatoes. Fantastic creme brulee for dessert. Highly recommend!
During such difficult times with Covid still negatively influencing our decisions, Anson’s provided a safe and comfortable environment. The service and food on Christmas Eve were great, from the calamari app to the whole flounder and delicious grouper. We would also recommend the creme brûlée. One note of caution...the small steps into the entry way are challenging, so be careful entering and especially exiting the restaurant. Watch your step, and you’ll have an enjoyable evening! We’ll definitely return soon.
Excellent as always. Love the new Calamari and Beet Salad.
Everything was perfect!
5 of us all loved our meals!!!
Food and service was awesome. Ambience was great. Friendly staff
Average food and somewhat odd service.
Have been coming to Charleston for many years Anson has been and continues to be a place to eat great food. Local to the market and downtown district always a friendly place with great atmosphere .
My wife and I travel to Charleston every year to celebrate our anniversary and we always dine at Anson’s for dinner. The food is always superb and the service is excellent. Try it, you will be happy you did.
Beautiful food, service, and ambiance.
The food was absolutely wonderful, but when compared to similarly priced restaurants there are better options for around $200 a meal. Darnell was a wonderful server and made us feel at home. We are happy we came here :)
Anson's is iconic Charleston, We love going there, the dining room is cozy, and the bartender, Mike is fantastic! The food is always good!
