Found this gem while looking through open table and finding everything was booked on a Saturday around 8pm. Upon arrival the assistant manager seated us and was very courteous.. our waiter Megan was amazing from start to finish.. explaining the menu, preferred appetizers as well as the drink menu. We had wedge salad to start with, a couple of drinks off of the drink menu, filets with scallops and shared mashed potatoes and asparagus. The wedge salads were delicious, with plenty of blue cheese.. the Filets were cooked perfectly, had a charred rich taste to them (you can see the wood fire grill clearly from most any table), and the sides were amazing.. possibly the best mashed potatoes I've ever had plus thick meaty asparagus. Everything was delicious and satisfying and just as good as I've had at Halls and Ruth's Chris. The only negatives were that I asked for one of the empty booths for us two, and I was shown an odd corner table/as if the booths were reserved, but we saw both booths never get seated the entire time we were eating. Perhaps they were saving them for a larger party, but a booth would have made this outstanding as the corner seating was awkward. The scallops were amazing, but for 14$, there were just two of them.. other chop houses will offer 3 or 4 as the standard. The asparagus came in a dish that was more than plenty for two people but the mashed potatoes were in a tiny ramekin that didn't really serve two. Next visit we will get two orders of mashed potatoes. Most chop house sides are gigantic, I usually cant finish all of the shareable sides, but this was a very small portion. Otherwise, this was an unforgettable dining experience and we will be back!

We were looking forward to a nice night at the Burwell’s, but it was not a good experience. As steakhouses go...probably one of the worst. Burnt, dry, and bad oysters, raw steak, rushed service and quite loud. In a city where culinary delights are abound, this is one location to scratch off your list.

Everything was wonderful. Very very good food, service and accounted one in our party with food allergies. The only issue was it was quite noisy and way too dark to read the menu.

The service was beyond expectations. The week link in the entire meal was the steak. A very bland taste with no flavor.

Hot rock Wagyu steak was perfect. Fun to cook at your own table for a few seconds. It was restaurant week so I had a 3 course dinner with deviled eggs as an appetizer, beef tenderloin with Brussels sprouts and then the cream brûlée for dessert. Great price for the restaurant week deals. Husband and friends had a NY strip steak. Both said it wasn’t a great cut of meat. We let the chef know and he agreed it should have been cut better. Offered us free dessert but since we were already getting one with my meal we declined.

Intimate, ate in a booth with 6 people, would have preferred a table. Food was very good, oysters Rockefeller was only so, so. Steak was excellent as well as the scallops. The young lady that was our server was amazing, so professional yet a great sense of humor!! Will go back next time in town.

This was not a good experience. We took our daughter to celebrate her 18th birthday and had reservations. We were taken upstairs where they had not turned on the AC because they had not expected to seat people upstairs. Needless to say, it was too hot. People were sweating and fanning themselves. We asked to move so they moved us to the back room where is was bearable. However, the lights in this section were spotlights and flickered on and off. The staff tried to adjust them for our neighbor and shined them directly on us. They could not fix the flickering lights. Luckily they stopped on their own after about 10 minutes.

I ordered the restaurant week prefix menu - big mistake. The flounder was thin, overcooked, and fishy. I also got the caprese salad and there was literally one tablespoon of mozzarella (not exaggerating) and average tomatoes. The dessert my daughter we ordered was inedible. It was supposed to be a chocolate cupcake, however there was no chocolate. It was some sort of dense vanilla with a raspberry filling. To top it all off, the waitress would disappear and not come back for long periods. I had to ask her 3 times for salt. The only reason I did not give this place all poor ratings is that my husband and daughter said their steak was good.

We have been coming to Charleston for many years and this was hands down the worst meal and experience. I think it is a tourist trap and not a place for repeat business.

We came out to Burwells to celebrate my sons birthday. Steak was his choice of cuisine and we wanted it to be a special experience. We loved cooking the appetizer in our hot stone and the meat was incredible. Melted in your mouth and worth every penny. Overall the value was great considering it was four of us. The ambience was exactly what we wanted, quiet and the wait staff was very attentive. This was the weekend after hurricane Dorian so not sure if it’s always that way but we were grateful that it worked out!

The atmosphere was great for a date night and our server Cathy S. was absolutely outstanding. The Lamb and NY Strip were both very tender and tasty the size for both were reasonable. The Creme' Burlee was AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS! by far hands down the best I've ever had.

The service was great from our server to front of house. The issue here is the food just didn’t live up to the price. We eat out a lot and don’t mind spending good money on food, we just expect the food to match the price. In this instance the food just doesn’t do that.

Burwell’s called me around 30 mins after making my reservation through opentable to let me know it shouldn’t have allowed me to make a reservation and that they couldn’t guarantee me a table at that time. We went anyway with plans to wait, they did get us seated very soon and so that wasn’t an issue. Our waiter was great, attentive, and explained the menu well. We ordered the wagyu and the sustainable chefs plate. The portion sizes were small for the steep prices. Although the food was good (not great), we left still hungry and wishing we had went somewhere else to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

We went for a special birthday celebration. Not only did the server monopolize our time by asking many personal questions, he gave unsolicited advice, unapologetically missed several items on our order (which his manager fixed) and made snarky comments like “I only have two hands” when asked about our order. Our food came long after others who were seated after us primary due to the server taking his time with our table. This made for a very late dinner and really ruined the Birthday mood. All the food was of good quality and excellent taste. Perhaps in a different situation, it would have been more enjoyable.
