It was my second time having dinner at Burwells and I am just as impressed as I was the first time. They outdo themselves when it comes to steak.

Outstanding food and service. Tender steak, flavorful duck gumbo, amazing desserts! Only disappointment was the wine menu featured an Alsatian Gewurtztraminer that did not wish to be found the evening we were there. We will be back (even if the name is the same as the AYCE cafeteria at Wofford!) Loved it!!

Our meal was very good and we had an amazing server. Some man that worked there kept trying to clear our plates while we were still eating. Other than him, we had an enjoyable experience.

My husband and I dine here routinely. We love the hot rock appetizer, and my steaks are always perfect. I highly recommend saving room for dessert. My favorite is the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Tres Leche. Our server, Dennis, took great care of us. The only issue we had is they have to cook their burgers medium well per health department requirements. The first one was way over done, but the manager quickly had one prepared that was done but not over done (less charred). They always make sure we have an enjoyable dining experience. We will definitely be back.

Great place to eat for special occasions. Get the Wagyu hanger steak! Also, ask for what's off-menu for the dessert list. Tell John Thomas (the owner) we recommended you. Ask for Samantha (Sam) for your waitress.
