First time in Charleston and picked Anson based on reviews I read. Make sure you eat upstairs as the atmosphere is completely different than the first floor. The food was delicious with lots of southern specialties on the menu. The service was terrific as well. It was a little overpriced and being from NY, that says alot. All in all a very enjoyable evening.

Exceptional food. Loved the fried green tomatoes appetizer. The dinner entrees were prepared perfectly and tasted delicious! We had a filet and the pecan crusted fish. Our server was friendly and attentive. Give Ansons a try! You’ll love it!

We had a wonderful meal and a terrific server who helped us navigate the menu and did a great job on specials. The food was great-flounder was all that it was hyped up to be. Felt very comfortable dining in during this Covid time. Spacing was good and masks were worn by all servers. I would definitely recommend this place for a memorable meal. Good wine as well.

This was my first visit to Anson. What an amazing experience. Can't wait to go back. The flounder was so good. Friends had the grouper and pork chop both were excellent. No room for dessert. Maybe next trip.

I have eaten at Anson's several times over the years and the food is as good now as it was prior to the fire. Phil, the General Manager, is always there and makes a point of Thanking customers and checking to see if everything is OK. My party had a wonderful time and the service was as good as it gets.

Ambiance was great and we were seating Immediately upon our arrival at our reservation time.
It was disappointed that there were 3 entree menu items no longer available. Had we known this, we would have eaten elsewhere.

Anson is absolutely amazing - highly recommend! It was one of our favorite meals while in Charleston. A must try is the Fried Green Tomatoes and the Almond Basket dessert. The service is equally outstanding.

The appetizer was delicious we got fried green tomato’s. I got fried chicken as my meal which had no flavor other than grease and split the shrimp and grits. I didn’t know southern restaurants could mess this up but it had no flavor and the shrimp was over cooked. Not worth the $$. Won’t be going back. The waitress was great though!

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.

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.
