One of the best meals that my wife and I have ever had. The food was perfect. KJ was our server and she was outstanding. We picked the specials that she recommended and the food exceeded our expectations. Best restaurant in Charleston.

I’m not a huge fan of Shrimp and Grits but the appetizer has made me a fan. The best I’ve ever had....period. It was all high quality and superbly prepared. A gem in Charleston. Highly recommend

I’m so sad we’ve never been here before! My husband and I come to Charleston every year and somehow missed this place until now. Wow. Amazing food and service. Scallops were cooked perfectly and my husbands Bone in Ribeye was awesome. Highly recommend.

We arrived a few minutes early and that was no problem; we were politely seated right away. We had walked to the restaurant and were hot and glad to sit down. They brought ice water right away and kept those glasses filled through out the meal with no hesitation. We ordered dessert first! Some restaurants give me push back on this but these folks rolled with it! The fried chicken was the best either of us have ever tasted! (REALLY!)

They are coming some amazing food here! Calamari was perfect. Loved the smoky pork and jalapenos added in. Always one of my favourite Charleston spots.

We were greeted immediately and everyone we walked by working said hello. The manager was very thankful for our patronage. The service was great but the food was excellent. From the grouper or salmon to the fried chicken, everything was fresh and delicious. A wonderful experience.

We choose Anson because of the great reviews and they did not disappoint. We were running late for our 8 PM reservation and I called to let them know. Michael the manager answered the phone and he responded quickly "don't worry, we will see you when you get here, just arrive safety". Even with all the COVID craziness they made it a very pleasant dining experience. Our waitress Leah was friendly and attentive and knew the menu and wine list well. The food here was simply amazing. We ordered the Greek Salad as an appetizer and the Filet Mignon and Whole Crispy Flounder as our main dishes. For desert we had ice cream on this waffle goodness that had some fruit. Everything from the green beans, mashed potatoes to our steak and fish was cooked to perfection. We will definitely be going back and highly recommend for the food alone!

Anson was SO good! A wonderful date night. It was kind of expensive but not the worst. The food was amazing and probably the best I’ve ever had. The wine was a little expensive for what you got but it was to be expected.

We chose Anson to celebrate a very special day.... it's our favorite restaurant in Charleston for Special Occasions. Kyle was our Server and neither he nor the food disappointed. The Scallop Ceviche, Lobster Tail with Tempura Claw and Ribeye were all delicious. Kyle's service was excellent and we plan to request him on our next visit. The restaurant also has impressive COVID-19 Safety Measures in place. Wonderful evening.
