Arrived and was seated outdoors as requested. This restaurant shouldn’t offer it as the two tables are on a busy side walk adjacent to a parking lot and horse-drawn carriage pathway. We received our menus and water. We waited 30 minutes for our waiter, secured another reservation at another restaurant and eventually left after 45 mins. It was our wedding anniversary dinner.

The food may be good but we never got an opportunity to taste it.

Burwell’s is a true dining experience! From the moment we stepped in the door until we left, the service was impeccable. The food was amazing from the more simple preparations to the seasonal preparations. Juliano, our server, is outstanding at ensuring his customers are having a dining experience with memories that will last a lifetime. This was our first experience at Burwell’s and it will not be our last! We are already sharing with friends that they should go!

Hanger steak was excellent and the Brussels sprouts were amazing! Nutella cheesecake was a nice finish to the meal. Will definitely return on next trip to Charleston.

Manager greeted us and was friendly until we said we’d prefer inside seating. We’d never been to the restaurant before and didn’t know about the seating - which was two tables in front, on the street. He said “you requested outside”. I tried to explain, and said it was also related to weather concern, but he was annoyed. Damage done. In any case, after that, our server took great care of us and the meal was excellent. Would return, but don’t cross the manager! ;-)

Ordered the prime rib. It was just a real bad piece of meat and I realize sometimes that happens. The owner took it off bill and was very apologetic and so was server. Some of our side orders were messed up too. With so many options in town I would not go back as it’s pricey too.

Our first visit to Burwell’s. We enjoyed our dinner out. First dine in restaurant meal in months and Burwell’s struck the balance of space and safety with energy and fun. Food was good. Service was attentive without being a nuisance. Great Italian wine the glass. Overall a wonderful dinner experience in one of my favorite cities. We will be back when visiting our CofC student.

The food and service was exceptional, they're operating on a limited menu right now but that doesn't take away from the quality dining experience that the staff offers.

This is our second visit and we will most surely recommend and re-visit at some point within the distant future.
