Steakhouse
Bricks & Barrels is a steak and seafood experience recently voted as Charleston's Favorite Restaurant in the annual People's Choice Awards. Known for its unique ambience that relaxes the mind and rejuvenates the spirit, Bricks & Barrels features four semi-private dining areas that give the sensation of dining inside a whiskey barrel. The restaurant’s interior features wooden whiskey barrels used as dining tables contrasted against the rustic brick façade. But the food & drinks are the highlight, with the Green Tomato Napoleon being a favorite appetizer. The Mediterranean Chicken was nominated for Charleston's best dish by The Food Guy, a local food critic: bone-in chicken breast braised in capers, figs and olives created a beautiful symphony of flavors (sweet, tart, salty, earthy) on a colorful, gorgeously presented plate." Charleston's Favorite Bartender Drew serves specialty cocktails, local craft beer and award-winning wines. Memories are made at Bricks & Barrels.

    We love eating here! The food is amazing. On our most recent visit, we ordered appetizers then our main course.. well our drinks came.. then we waited.. was served our dinner. I asked for the appetizer.. he looks at me lost.. well it must have went to another table. Do you want to order another? No.. our dinner is here.. service was very slow.. if you can get past that. Food is on point.

    We made reservations for 6 and were greeted and sat right away on a busy Saturday night. The service was great and the food was delicious. One of our guests sea bass was not cooked quite right and they immediately took it back and remade it and then took it off the bill (we didn't ask for that). Will definitely be back here the next time I am in Charleston!

    Here are the good points: the lamb was excellent, as was the Chilean sea bass. Our server was terrific, attentive but not intrusive. The wine was a decent pour. The creme brulee was delicious. It's an attractive venue. The bad points: the mashed potatoes were institutional (bland, no spice, one big thump from a scoop); the green beans were so mushy as to be inedible (we were there at 6 pm and I'd place money on the fact that they were reheated from the night before). The "barrel room" was not intimate; it was like being on display and the lighting is way too bright. The parking is an issue; very small lot out front, and the spots were taken by people at nearby ball game. The lot next door is patrolled by an angry man who yells at you because you're not a spa customer. Would I go again? Only if I hear that food issues have improved. I can live with parking issue, but they really ought to work on that.

    This was my first visit to Bricks & Barrels. We sat in a barrel at a shorter table, which was beneficial as two of my family members have limited mobility. The food was excellent, as was the wine and service. Truly fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere. The staff was friendly and helpful. This is my new favorite restaurant in Charleston.

    My husband went for the first time to celebrate our anniversary yesterday. It is now one of our favorite. We had this amazing appetizer that was fried green tomatoes, pimento cheese and filet. We loved our entrees and dessert too. Service was perfect and the atmosphere was peaceful. We will be back and have already recommended it to our friends.

    I have been to Bricks and Barrels 4 times now and have never been dissapointed. I took my lady for her first time last Saturday. They did not disappoint; Tremendous selection from burgers to Chilean sea bass. Jordan was an efficient and informative waiter and spot on with all recommendations. The only sad point was we couldn't stay for dessert due to our schedule. High marks across the board!

    For a while now I have given up on Charleston for date night in general. We use to go to Fifth quarter when they were still around but chose to venture outside of our comfort zone and try new things. Hands down the best restaurant I have been to in Charleston thus far. I strongly recommend this location. The food was perfection, the service was fast, the noise level was low but they still played music which was appropriate and great for conversation. I’d say it was a little pricy but we got our moneys worth because the food was so good and the mood was perfect. All around great place and will definitely come back soon !

    A brick-walled eatery with a handul of wine barrel booths along part of a wall is a clever concept, but execution falls flat. Instead of a fun experience, it was just blah. It started when we checked in and asked for a barrel booth and the bored hostess said they were full. Not true, I saw a bit later. A couple were occupied and a couple were for large parties, but one or two were simply stacked with dirty dishes from the previous guests. Our waiter did the bare minimum, taking our order and escaping as quickly as possible. It was that way the whole time; he made brief, perfunctory appearances and quickly vanished. Not sure where -- tables across the room were not cleaned and no one was trying. Maybe they were understaffed, but the staff was largely invisible and apparently not taught 'if you have time to lean you have time to clean.' The food, mediocre. My wife sent back her limp, soggy salad. The other sides may have been prepared, but looked and tasted canned. No presentation, just stuff on a plate. My $54 ribeye was tender and juicy but bland. My wife's pork chop was flavorless. We didn't bother with dessert. We had looked forward to this experience for a long time and regretted it. Everything we had could be found better prepared at half the price at a steak chain.

    Service was excellent. My husband had the red snapper and he said it was very good. The swordfish I had was not very good. The glaze on it was fantastic but the fish had a strong fishy odor and taste. Overall, experience was good. Bricks and Barrels is still one of our favorite restaurants.
