Steakhouse
Bricks & Barrels is a steak and seafood experience voted three consecutive years 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.

    Great place to splurge for some quality food. B&B has been a great, steady, high quality place to eat. Shrimp and grits are crazy good. We loved the seafood pasta and the salmon special tonight as well. Reservations were easy and staff is fantastic.

    Excellent service. Good food. 1 of 3 steaks was a bit over cooked , but I didn’t feel like it was worth sending back. Definitely edible. It’s always really quiet in here, which to me feels a little stuffy. The tables are bar height. The stools are the most uncomfortable seating I’ve ever experienced. I’m tall and found myself standing and leaning onto the seat. My short mother said she felt like she was sliding off. There is a rail on the stool to put your feet but not very comfy for an entire meal.

    The feel is good when you walk in the door. I love the decor of the place. Glass table tops on a barrel. Love the light fixtures. Not over crowded and plenty of staff. The food was outstanding and appetizers too. Dessert did not live up to the hype. Lava cake - cake was spongy and not in a good way. Not bad but not as good as main course or apps but decent.

    We’ve sat at two different “in the barrel” tables. This time we had one with a glass top that wasn’t even attached to the base that kept tipping when barely leaning on it. And the chairs were so uncomfortable. The other table beside it was so much better the time prior. Also, my fried green tomato appetizer was prepared incorrectly. I ordered balsamic on the side and it was put all over it. I wasn’t even offered a discount on the app which was highly surprising and disappointing from what I thought was a finer dining restaurant. Also my steak was GROSSLY undercooked. Ordered medium well and it was rare inside. I would’ve accepted if they would’ve butterflied it but that was never offered as a solution. So I could only eat the perimeter which was cooked to my liking. Our waiter seemed disinterested in our table. Wasn’t the best service like we’ve had there all other times. All in all, the meal was a bit disappointing because we are typically so happy with our dinner here. This time was a bit of a letdown. We’ll be back, and hope for better next time.

    Server and bar were very slow. I ask for a bourbon on the rocks. He came back three times because they were out of what I asked for and then it took forever. It’s just a straight pour over ice. It shouldn’t take 15 minutes.

    For $60+ a plate I shouldn’t be able to get a better meal at the local chain steakhouse. Poor cuts of meat not cooked correctly, reheated mashed potatoes and frozen veggies is not what was expected given the inflated prices. Service also very poor. Drinks spent more time empty than full. No checkup until check was dropped at table. Will not return.

    My dessert was still frozen, the server took my food to another table and then removed it from them and brought it back to me after it was on another table. I got one drink refill. I fell in a hallway going to the bathroom on the uneven floor that was covered by a rug with a floor side next to it but not over it. The wet floor sign says slippery when wet not hole or uneven flooring. I reported it to the manager who was rude and couldn't even spell my name right.

    The food was delicious and the atmosphere was really cool. I also forgot my receipt for my company and they were nice enough to send me an itemized one via email. Only downside was that with the special menu for that night, they had cut out their burgers and sandwich selection, which I was really looking forward to one of the burgers on their menu. But it is understandable, because the quality of food was very good.

Everything was great. I would have liked to have a scoop of ice cream with the triple chocolate cake. It was a bit rich without some ice cream.

The room can be setup in various layouts to maximize guests interaction and/or focus on speakers and presentations. The room includes a large-screen TV with HDMI input for presentations. The private dining room's picturesque space is intimate and inviting, the perfect setting for wedding rehearsal dinners, more formal bachelorette parties, and intimate wedding receptions. The entire restaurant is also available for dedicated events such as business luncheons.
