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.

I have been to bricks and barrels twice. Both experiences have been top tier. The food and service are excellent and my only complaint is I wish I could visit more often!

Food was amazing. But there was a gnat in my drink. They took the drink back and gave me a new one. And apologized of course. But for the price and just in general it was nasty. I’ll probably go back because I understand things happen..... just hope it doesn’t happen again 🤢 lol

Overall a good meal with excellent service. There were a couple of misses-- steak was overcooked, ordered medium and it came out well done. Risotto was a bit overcooked. Strawberry dessert was delicious. Looking forward to going back again!

The food was phenomenal, I could eat the butter basted salmon and risotto every day. Our party also had a fried green tomatoe napoleon the truffle totts and calamari as starters. The steaks were cooked perfect, our server friendly and the Tropic Like It's Hot cocktail was yummy. We will certainly return.

Not our first visit and as pleasant as past visits. They practiced social distancing and the staff wore masks. We knew the food was delicious, but were assured they are a safe place to eat at this time. Wonderful selection of craft beers too!

Overall ok. The walls in Barrel seating has several scratches and nicks around opening.
Door good but rice was cold and lobster bisque lacked lobster and was bland.
I have been there several times and this experience was not up to prior visits.

I usually get steak, but wanted to try a burger. Best burgers in town. My wife and I both got different burgers (PB&J Burger and Firestarter Burger). Both fantastic. Drinks were great, appetizer and desert were great. Cody was great and very personable. Awesome experience as always!

The reason I did not give you a 'yes' is because of your support of antifa, and BLM. 2 American internal terrorist organizations.

Made a reservation, wanted a barrel table, unable to get one... Unsure what a reservation is for or how to get a barrel. That's minor though. Steak over priced, full of fat and gristle. Salad over priced and lacked substance. Pan seared brussels were a complete let down, hard and under cooked. Overall too expensive at 90 bucks and be let down. Not one to complain to the server, after all she was great. Grace I believe.. Seems like you pay for the "chance" to sit in a barrel and watch baseball at power park. Won't be referring anyone I know to waste their money, sorry but prices are too high for product on the table.. Better steak at IHOP.

Excellent meal and service for our party of 7. We had the hummus platter, crab & artichoke dip & calamari to start. Entrees were shrimp & grits, seafood pasta, cajun pasta, and filet. All were delicious.

I've at at Bricks and Barrels a handful of times over the years. Service was slow on Valentines Day, but typically not like this on normal nights.
