My wife and I had a 3 day vacation in Charleston. We decided to take a carriage ride at Old South Carriage on Anson Street. While we were there we noticed Anson Restaurant, so we made a reservation through OoenTable. I had Salmon and my wife had flounder. Both were well prepared and tasty. Very good service, nice quiet atmosphere.

Excellent, but should serve bread , as is usually the case in fine dining establishments. Otherwise I would have given them 5 stars.

The interior is not what it used to be before the fire. Upstairs is nicer than downstairs. The waitstaff while nice, are not truly professional. We ordered a half bottle of champagne and started to drink it. We ordered our dinner and another half bottle of wine to pair with dinner. Without even checking, our server whisked away our champagne without even checking if we had finished it. Our service was rushed like they wanted to turn the table quickly.
The food was average at best. The veal parm was kind of bland and overcooked. The app was a blend of calamari and some peppers and was quite good. Caesar salad was blah. Overall would not go back as there are plenty of places that offer better food and certainly better service

The waitress was spot on when she recommended fried green tomatoes, calamari and roasted oysters. The main meal was great, one of our party shared bone in rib-eye and they were very impressed when their meal already came split in 2 servings. The cashew crusted grouper was wonderful. As for the deserts we had creme brûlée to share with the group. Great service and such a great restaurant. We will definitely come back if we’re in the area.

Our waiter, Darnell, was so knowledgeable about the menu and about the wines and about the specials. He was great with us... He was great with the children.
I just can't say enough about him...He was awesome.
The food was great really good !

This was the first time for either my wife or I to eat here. It was absolutely, totally spectacular! Her salad was great. I had both raw and baked oysters as appetizers (6 of each). The baked oysters were butter, garlic, Parma, and bread crumbs. Both exquisite. Her scored founder was a great price of flounder perfectly cooked. My duck two ways was delicious as well.

We had a fabulous meal! Everything was excellent from the moment we walked in. I highly recommend eating here. We had two different shrimp dinners, and they had no problem changing my husbands dish from grits to mashed potato’s since he is not a fan of grits. Our waiter Kyle was wonderful ( I think since I’m not good with names),he was quick and very attentive to all his customers!

Food was ok. Server had a bit of an attitude but was serving a large group and wasn’t happy when we offered to move. I’m sure this was not a typical evening. It’s looks like a lovely place.

Made reservations in plenty of advance time. First to visit Charleston and hostess sat us upstairs with no ambiance at all. Basically a conference room with white table cloths. Disappointed

Four for dinner. It was good, but two of us had fish, and they were both slightly over cooked. For $40+ , I would expect a little bit better.
But, Anton is still a favorite.

Arrived 15 minutes before reservation. Let the host know. He looked lost as it was. After 25 minutes he finally acknowledged us standing in the background and sat us. Experience overall wasn't great. Our waiter was solid in service, didn't check in on us except for getting close to finishing the meal up.. It was an anniversary date and of the entire place... a hunting lodge room wasn't exactly romantic.

Came down for a quick anniversary stay. We always try a get to Anson's because the food and service is always wonderful. We sat at the bar with Mike and he was great. He actually was the only bartender there that night and it was extremely busy, but he handled it very well and our meal and drinks were on time. Beautiful quant restaurant with amazing food.
