Butcher & Bee opened in Charleston in 2011 with the mission of serving honest-to-goodness sandwiches made with flavor combinations and food quality usually reserved for fine dining. That dream has grown beyond sandwiches to a bigger location on Morrison Drive, offering a larger, more diverse menu featuring locally sourced mezze, vegetables and proteins, beer, wine and cocktails.

Feta dip with pita bread and honey is a must have-delish! I had the roasted cauliflower for dinner. It was on a bed of curried cauliflower rice. That part was not very flavorful, but the piece of roasted cauliflower was very tasty. Husband had the fried chicken and enjoyed every bit of his dinner. Disappointed that the restaurant did not have iced tea. Come on! We're in the south- that's expected. Overall enjoyed the food, ambience and service at this restaurant. Would go back again to sample more of the small plate appetizers and purchase a gallon the feta dip- yum,yum,yum!!!!!

Immediately upon walking we loved the atmosphere of the place. I will say the noise level is high, but not in a way that ruined anything. It's just worth mentioning in case you were looking for a quiet evening. Once seated service was amazing beginning to end. Our cocktails were fantastic, and the waiter had great insight into the menu and answers for all of our questions. The food... oh man the food. Everything was absolutely amazing. The blending of flavors and presentation as well as the portions exceeded our expectations by far. We were blown away by how much food we actually got for the prices. This will absolutely be worth every cent you spend on it and then some! If you're looking to go out and have excellent drinks/food, then this is a place worth considering!

The bacon wrapped dates were like candy, the bread and whipped feta was delicious. For entrees we had the duck and kebabs, they were decent. The small plates are definitely the stars here.

Food and service were great.Only negative moment was when the manager? (not our waitress and he did not have a apron on)serving me one of the dishes we had ordered did so with a toothpick hanging out the side of his mouth.Kind of gross and not appropriate for when u are serving at a upscale dining restaurant - something one should do at home.

The food was great the portions were big we ended up with more food than we could eat. The service was outstanding, prompt and attentive. The restaurant was loud, you had to talk loudly to hear the person across the table

My party of 4 enjoyed an abundance of vegan and vegetarian sides and dishes! The cauliflower entree was amazing! We also especially loved the butternut squash and brussel sprouts.

Thanks for offering so many plant-based options! We will be back and often!

Food arrived cold. Took one bite. Waiter said I’d receive anew meal but same food came back with missing bite. Overheated in microwave and dried out and poor quality. Item was removed from bill but no offer for new choice to replace. I’ve eaten there about 8 times and the quality of food and service was nothing like previous times. This was poor.

Everyone went above and beyond for my wifes birthday. The manager checked on us often. We were a fairly loud group, I apologize for that and they never mentioned it to us. They were gracious enough to provide candles for our cake and even sent out food specially catered to her diet. Thank you!

Butcher and Bee is one of my absolute favorite restaurants in Charleston. The fun atmosphere starting at the parking lot and flowing throughout the restaurant will certainly impress. The food is incredible and very reasonably priced. Don’t skip the whipped feta. The service was just as lovely as the place. Loved this place so much I came back the next day!

Brunch with kids, ages 11-17 - enjoyed the ambiance, very friendly staff - thanks Bailey )
Interesting fare; whipped feta -honey - black pepper with the best pita I’ve ever had. Incredibly delicious flavor combinations and savory libations. The brisket was absolutely melt in your mouth yumtastic as were the bacon and French toast. Definitely recommend. We will be returning for happy hour & dinner. Go get your “grub on” at the Butcher & Bee.

The ambiance is extremely warm and inviting; lights leading up to a huge patio straight to the front door. The inside lighting matches the light brown of wood to bring about a modern cabin environment. Customer service was on point and very accommodating. Not only was the Restaurant Week deal the most affordable but the food was superb! Portion sizes were enough to finish the meal without having to taking any home. I love being able to see the chefs in action through the bar side sitting. The tables are well spread out, enough for servers to get around. I look forward to trying the seasonal menus in the future!

We really enjoy eating here and its usually a great meal. However, tonight the food was not great. Our burgers sat ready on the expo counter for a about 10-15 minutes before it joined the rest of our order when it was served. Also saw a cook with his gloves on at a prep station eating. Once again we have had many great meals here but tonight was pretty bad.

We went here on New Years Eve to have a special meal and were not disappointed. We ended up doing almost all of the small plates and then one of the "medium" plates. Service was fast, informative, and fun. There was enough of a (pardon the pun) buzz in the restaurant that voices needed to be raised a bit to have a conversation.

Really amazing combinations of unusual spices and vegetables! For a food lover, who dimes out a lot, that is important! We crave unusual creations and combinations especially with the use of vegetables and other healthy options! I can cook almost anything at home but when I go out I need something unusual and worth going out for...this place delivers! ❤️ thank you! Wine per glass is a bit expensive, but food makes up for it!
