Edmund's Oast Ratings and Reviews
We went for New Year's Eve and it was perfect. We sat outside and I was concerned it was going to be too cold, but they had heat lamps and heaters at every table and it was actually really warm! The staff was extremely professional, knowledgable of the menu and the cuisine and provided a fantastic experience. The food was phenomenal - we tried a variety of things to share and loved it all. Our favorite was probably the New York Strip Steak. Their high-end cocktails are delicious as well. Definitely a great spot for a special occasion, fancy date night or drinks. We will be back when we're in town again.
Our favorite place we ate at while in Charleston. The food was top notch and a very good value for the quality. Service was good. The beer selection was great (and so was the quality), maybe a touch pricey. Next time we visit Charleston it will be at the top of the list.
This is a great restaurant, but we got seated outside on a night when it was really cold, and unlike outdoor 'totally enclosed seating', this is NOT totally enclosed, but simply large blinds that pull down, with inside heat lamps. Sitting outside with air from the outside blowing in is not a great way to enjoy any meal, much less a nice meal that costs...Make sure you get a table inside, unless the temperature outside is one you can be comfortable in....Don't let the hostess 'sell you' on the fact you'll be fine. Outside it was about 38-40 degrees the night we were there, and it was cold, regardless of heat lamps and alcohol consumed. I will go back, because its a great restaurant and brew pub......
The wife, the daughter and I started out sharing two small plates.
The Grilled octopus with spicy lentils was tender enough, but lacked heat or any real flavor.
Given that the Mac and peas were made with “curry cheddar cheese”, we were expecting more depth of flavors.
Easily the best dish of the night was the spicy green flounder with a green yogurt pesto. This is a dish that had everything the other dishes lacked. A bit of heat yet refreshing experience on the taste buds. This is a dish I would order again and again
For a tempura dish, the batter on the Tempura flounder and shrimp dish was not crispy. The baked grits and red sauce made this dish even more muddled.
As expected there is a wide variety of beer options. What was surprising however, was the extensive offering of wines and other spirits.
Although we had a great time the meal was a bit underwhelming.
First time to Edmund's Oast and we were not disappointed. Service was excellent and server was very knowledgeable and accommodating to my gluten intolerance. My husband had the Red Wedding cocktail which is just an amazing adventure of a cocktail. We shared three dishes, which was great because it gave us both a chance to taste a wider range of their options. I was thrilled to discover that most of their desserts were gluten free. Definitely plan to return.
I️ used to come here all the time when I️ lived in Charleston, so was excited to come back. Ordered the salt chicken and it tasted like lysol. Everything was way too heavily seasoned with some sort of green curry. Did not tell us what cheeses were what. Definitely had me missing their Crab Porridge.
I was looking forward to dining here. Brought my mother from out of the country and had a less than exceptional experience. From the moment we arrived (7 minutes early) we were told they would seat us closer to our reservation time. There was at least 7 tables open an absolutely no one in front of us, so we stood in the cold corner until exactly at 715. Then we waited for 15 minutes for water. Our waiter was automatic and annoying. I have a severe gluten allergy and clearly vocalized this and was told “pretty much” everything was gluten free. When I insisted he ask the chef, only two dishes were recommended. The food was delicious and my mom got a free cup of coffee but our waiter kept say “fantastic “ even when it was a no thank you. I give my hats off to the chef but the entire experience was not worth it. Sadly I will not be returning and will not recommend. Although the food was delicious, I would recommend that either the menu be all little more specific about the poached shrimp as we thought it would be warm and it was cold and a bit “oily”.
We had the charcuterie plate, with cheese, and 3 main plates.. the grilled octopus really wasnt a great menu item but we enjoyed the flank steak and the wreckfish.. they were what I expected from Edmunds Oast. We went for date night and it was rather noisy this time because of a drunken birthday party but usually i love this place. This was my 6th time being there and i love it. The cheese was underwhelming this occasion but they change their menu often and I appreciate coming in and having new things to enjoy!
Our server was outstanding. I love a cocktail, but I didn’t find a selection on the menu to my taste. So the server requested a special cocktail and the bartender created an AWESOME gin cocktail just for me. I think it should be on the menu! Food was really good but I suggest you definitely save room for the house made ice cream. We chose mint chocolate cookie and it blew us away. Perfect ending! Thanks E.O.
Our service and the ambiance was nice, but the main thing, the food, left a lot to be desired. We started with a cheese plate, and all of the cheeses were bland. Then, the hanger steak we ordered medium rare was extremely undercooked, and the salt chicken we ordered was very rich, and the chicken was overly crispy that it was dry and you couldn't even tell it was chicken to begin with. I'd come back for happy hour and recommend it for that, but for a $100 date night, we expected to like more than the wine.
We had 6 people in our party and ordered a wide variety of food. The charcuterie and cheese platter was awesome, as was the burger. Four different vegetables, chicken liver parfait and French fries were all VERY salty!! House made ice creams and sorbet were very good but we probably will not return. Our waitress, Jessica was outstanding.
We travelled from Toronto for my wife’s birthday. We had three nights planned and Edmund’s Oast was our dark horse, recommended by a friend. We did the chef’s counter tasting menu and I did the drink pairing whereas my wife did not. First off, the service was amazing. Right from the start we were made to feel welcome. Our server Meghan was amazing and really attentive. She was really knowledgeable about all the dishes and was a real pro. The food was amazing right from the amuse bouche to the dessert. The drink tasting was an amazing value in my opinion. I did not expect a new drink every course and was blown away by the quality (and quantity). I highly recommend this place for the chefs counter. I can’t comment on the rest of the options but from what i saw and what I’ve heard it’s one of the best in Charleston. We didn’t get a chance but the outdoor seating area looked amazing. I’d post some pictures but I don’t want to ruin the surprises the tasting menu offers. You won’t be disappointed.
We had friends/business people in town. The food was great, but the service was not great. The waitress seemed to be frustrated with us. She brought the check to the table before even asking if we wanted dessert-- which we did! We then ordered 3 desserts to split and she re-rang the check. She stopped smiling at us, and someone else started helping our table. We really felt like for a $50 tip, she was unfriendly and did not want us there.
