Went here for an anniversary dinner, and got seated in a nice spot because of that. We waited in the bar area at first, and the bartender wasn't overly friendly or easy to get his attention to be served. Maybe he was having a bad day, but for a higher priced dining experience you kind of expect more in terms of service. The Filet Mignon was more tender and flavorful than the Wagyu Hanger steak- was expecting more out of the Wagyu, having it for the first time. Also was under salted. Steak Frites were very good, as was the wedge salad. But for the price, the steaks could've been better overall. Service was a little slow from the kitchen as they said they were understaffed. It appeared the owner? or manager? was helping, as he served us our steaks. Decent place, but we're from Atlanta, and it's hard to beat Atlanta restaurants.

My daughter had a get together for her birthday with 5 friends. They are 14 and had a great time. My wife and I sat at the bar and had a great experience with the bartenders. We all enjoyed our food and look forward to coming back later in the month for our traditional dinner before the Christmas symphony.

Great steaks and service. The steaks were cooked to the exact temperature we requested. Michael took good care of us. Just ask for Mike when you arrive. I’m sure all of the servers are
Great also.

What an outstanding dinging experience. Our professional server, Michael, what helpful with wine and menu suggestions and very very entertaining. The food was excellent and exceeded our expectations. Do NOT skip the Wagu beef. It will our rib eyes seem pedestrian. We cannot wait to go back again.

We took some friends for their first visit to Burwell's and it was her Birthday. She said it was the best steak she has ever had. I have to agree. The desserts were simply amazing. Great service and the food was the best as always.

You get to know a restaurant by the greeting at the front. It was not a good welcome. The ground floor is more admirable than the second floor. We were seated on the second floor. Our server was very nice. The food is good. The Deviled eggs and Wedge salad were a good start.

Our entrees were not as expected; two of my sons ordered the 10 oz Filet Mignon, it was not no more than 5 Oz presented in an average way. Also, they came at different times; I saw how two of those steaks waited at the waiter's stand for about ten minutes. So the food was cold.

My other son and I ordered the NY Strip with Steak Frites; they were not at the right temperature as we requested; one was well done (I ordered it medium-plus), and my son was medium well when he ordered it Medium. So we returned the latest. My son ended up eating twenty minutes later, but the worst detail was that they brought him the steak solo with NO sides, which is an unfortunate element that speaks a lot about the restaurant.

The desserts were delicious, especially the Cinnamon tres leches. However, the drop that filled our cup was when we received the check and were charged five steaks instead of four.

Again, in the small details, the greatness is stored.

Our first time in Charleston and Burwell’s is a great spot. Fun atmosphere, greeted by owner John. We arrived a little early and enjoyed cocktails by Joe. Tyler was a wonderful, knowledgeable server. The hot rock appetizer was delicious and the Hanger steak was our tables favorite entree as well as the scallops.
Highly recommend.
