Unique ambiance and experience. Food was very good and service was excellent. Sound level was the only drawback.

Great place for celebratory dinner. We were a party of 7. Everything we ordered was perfectly prepared. Service was good. Ambience is pleasant. One of the few good restaurants in Charleston that can accommodate large parties.

We went with our 3 kids during our vacation in Charleston, the look and field is unique and greatly decorated. Then cocktails were fantastic, we tried the Belle Oaxaca and Old Fashioned and that was one of the best I have ever tried!. Then on the appetizers Tuna Sushi and King Crab appetizer of the day was THE Star, amazing combination of flavors. For the main course, even though there is no kids menu, they went the extra mile to accommodate our 3 kids meals. For the adults the Mahi and the NY were fantastic and paired perfectly with the wine. Overall was a great experience and a great surprise above expectations! Last but not least Marisa was an extraordinary, patient and very kind server, being the cherry of the cake of our experience!

Excellent food, service and ambiance! Highly recommend visiting 5Church in Charleston as well as Charlotte. Jamie Lynch's menu is full of tasty temptations - we had the crab benedict, avocado toast, lolla rossa salad w/cappucinos and latés. Every bite was scrumptious. Our server, Jane, was the epitome of excellence - shared the interesting history of 5Church, Top Chef Lynch, and its location & artwork. Her knowledge of the menu in detail made ordering a breeze. Our plates came out quickly and perfectly. Our rez for brunch was at 10a when they opened, but already the tables were filled and there was a lively, welcoming, fun vibe. Keep up the good work, 5Church - we'll be back soon!

Great atmosphere, though we were sat by a very loud table that seemed to be unaware of anyone but themselves. Appetizers were amazing as was most of the main course. However if you plan to get the 60sec seared steak expect it to be relatively raw. Our group ordered two and we had to send one of them back because it was completely rare.

The ambiance is amazing. Loved the bar especially (even though we ate at a table). The food was good but not worth the price. SUPER salty! The drinks were fantastic though - would definitely order the Moonshine Mule again!

This was our third time at 5 Church. Food, service, and ambiance is excellent. Always is
My biggest complaint was when we got there it was empty and not many people. Till we were almost finished it was more then 50% occupied and the bar was full. We finished with no dessert (which was a disappointment)and left quickly.
I really didn’t appreciate that were not following the guidelines for COVID. And the bar tenders plus a manager I presume didn’t know how to wear a mask properly. Their noses were completely out.
I try to follow the guidelines and patronize the places that do.

Love that an old church has been turned into a restaurant. The bar and dining area in the main church section is unique. We were seated in the smaller side room, so not the same experience as eating in the main room. Unique decor and writing on the ceiling and walls. Service was friendly, and food very good. Glad that they use local Keegan-Filion meats, which is one of the reasons we chose to eat there. The pork belly Benedict was very good, but the pork belly was not cooked crispy so the fat made the dish very rich. Loved the tomato jam which added just a bit of sweet with the savory. Since it’s summer and fresh fruit is in abundance, it would have been nice to have even just a little garnish on the plate, but there was not. Friends were satisfied with their meals, and side order of a huge biscuit which was flaky. $12 for a Bloody Mary with Tito’s vodka was a bit steep, especially since half the drink was ice. Good experience, would be nice at night, but there wasn’t anything really outstanding to make me want to return.

Our server, Anfernee (spelling, sorry) was ABSOLUTELY AWESOME. He made our whole entire experience, although, the food and atmosphere were awesome as well! I was a server myself, and he was probably one of the best servers I’ve ever had.... I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner with a few other friends, and none of us have been to 5Church yet (we are all from the Charleston area). A few appetizers slightly overpriced, but entrees were well worth it!!! Overall, we had an excellent first experience. 10/10 would come back.

Great service, infact, there seemed to be too many wait staff for the number of guests. Food was good, not an exceptional meal for Charleston, but good. Limited menu as expected in these covid days. Great location. Biggest disappointment was that the tables were not far enough apart. We figured they wouldn't fill them all because we were all inside and of course, couldn't wear masks while eating. But as the evening went on, the tables became filled. Will not return during the pandemic.
