Someone stole my spice rack. Positives first: very accommodating for gluten free. Although can’t promise no cross contamination. Negatives: Food served cold and bland.

Glass doors opening and shutting to the patio made it very cold inside.

The website gave a very different picture that what the actual restaurant was like. The food was almost inedible and the service was sub par. Would never recommend.

Overall decent. Enjoyed the mac n cheese, as well as the holiday decor. Wasn’t the biggest fan of the Miracle cocktail I had but the presentation was cute. Felt the food is slightly overpriced for what you get. $6 for a side salad that’s tiny was disappointing. I would come back again and try something else.

The ambiance and food were great! The server not so good. The server seemed distracted when she was at the table and absent most of the time when we needed service. We had to request items from another server and also a bus person who was passing by since we could not locate our server several times. Plus, It was not very busy the evening we went so we couldn’t figure out what the issue was but hoping it was a one-time situation. I probably would visit again to give it another try to see if service was any better.

My Christmas cocktail was cute, but terrible, service was slow and it wasn’t busy, sandwich was $18 and nothing special, just a French dip with little flavor.

While our wait staff was extremely nice, the experience was overall poor because of out of stock menu and orders being brought out haphazardly. Again, most an under staffing issue

In the weeds and out of several menu items for an 8pm dinner reservation.
It was Christmas Day so we were just thankful for a meal other than Waffle House.

Went on Christmas. Very festive and staff was nice, but they were out of skirt steak and grain bowls (at 4 pm) so waitress came back to tell three of the four of us that they didn’t have what we ordered. Ended up getting burgers and chicken sandwiches that were over cooked, and pasta that wasn’t having a good day… so overall food was below average on that particular day, but the ambiance was great.

Had to make a reservation just to get there and find out there was several items not available on both the beer and food menu. When the waiter came to our table to give us water one glass had lipstick all over it. The other glass had stuff floating in it.

I would definitely not recommend it. Completely wasted out time on Christmas day.

Unfortunately this was an experience I will look back on regrettably. This was a Christmas Day dinner with my husband and kids that I was so looking forward to. From the moment I walked in I was met with sad and rude wait staff that seemed to despise the fact that they had to work. I was hoping for holiday cheer and was met with an atmosphere more like the Grinch. The hostess was unwelcoming from the start with not one spark of hospitality. Our server did not smile once throughout the experience. The holiday mugs that were promised for drinks were not available according to the server yet I could see them at the bar which was confusing. Instead our drinks came in disposable cups with straws. Each cocktail took over 20 minutes to arrive. The food was average but that would have been acceptable if I would have felt an ounce of kindness from anyone working on site. I saw the disappointment on my husbands face and my children’s and so wished we would have just ordered take out from somewhere else instead. This was a sad experience.

This is the second year we have visited the restaurant at Christmas. The atmosphere is so festive and will definitely get you in the spirit of the holidays! The server seemed a bit overwhelmed with the crowd but did a good job. The food menu is a bit limited but we shared the French dip sandwich and it was very good. Lots of Christmas cocktails with fun glasses. We will go back just for the decor!

We had a great Christmas Eve dinner at Handcraft Kitchens. The ambiance and service were great as the staff were in full Christmas outfits and holiday cheer. Our server, while vey busy, was very personable. I wish the menu was a little broader as I personally didn’t love the options (although my family was happy) but the food was good. Our family enjoyed it thoroughly and would recommend it!

We had a reservation at 5 pm, and waited about 20 minutes. We saw open tables outside but I think they were under staffed, I can understand that. But when we got sat, we just got regular menus real quick, so we grabbed a drink menu from another table. That’s fine. They probably forgot. But then no one came to our our table to give us water or a quick hello, people got sat after us and we saw the only waitress outside go to people after us, get their water and answer questions about the menu. I tried to get her attention but then she went inside. A little while later the hostess came out and I told her the waitress hadn’t been to our table yet so she said she’d go inside and tell her. Waitress came back out went to another table to refill their drinks and back to the other table to check on them. We were pretty bummed. At that point it was about 5:35 and we were done and decided to leave.

Even if you’re busy/under staffed please make sure to say hello, quick get waters, just a point of contact to people, especially if they showed up before another table.

We’ve gone one other time and the food was great. Hopefully it’ll improve.

Food was fine, but not amazing. Service was nonexistent. We had a reservation and it took 10 minutes for anyone to notice we were there, 20 to take our order, a long time to get our food, and 45 minutes to pay, even though I had a reservation for 2pm. So disappointing.

We made a reservation. Arrived 5 minutes early. Was sat quickly. We sat there for 22 minutes until my husband had to go to the hostess stand and ask if we could get a server. The hostess ended up taking our order. Walking around to find the server. Drinks arrived 12 minutes later. Server finally came by our table and said they would be taking care of us and we told him the hostess had taken our order. We ordered a kids meal, 6 wings, an order of fries and a cheeseburger. A beer, and jolly nog. Our bill was $77. The kids pasta was over cooked and had zero flavor. The fries were limp and extremely salty. The server came back once when we were done to see if we needed anything. I wanted to go here because of all the decorations for Christmas. Food is typical bar food. Disappointed in the quality of service and food. But if that doesn’t matter the decor was very festive

The drinks came in really cute holiday mugs but were very watered down and overpriced. It’s one of those place that are fun to go to one time but I can’t say I’ll ever go back.

Went for the holiday set up and was sat outside in the freezing rain “under a heater” that quite literally did not work. Waited 20 minutes after being sat before we asked for our waiter/ waitress only for her to show up and have a complete attitude with us. The holiday drinks were in the cutest cups but every person in our party (5) agree that they were the worst drinks they had ever had, not to mention they were $14 and tasted horrible!!! The food came out and the steaks were so tough we had to send them back. Oh and they “couldn’t split the check” so it was $184 for a literal sh*t experience. This was the second time we have been there and we will never be going back. I have no idea who manages this place….

Our reservation was at 5pm And by then all the appetizers we out except for wings, which was disappointing and even though this whole place was decked to the 9s in decorations we were placed up front where every time the door opened we got a bust of cold air from outside. I feel like they should have concerned this because of the cooler weather and not place the two tables on the right side in the very front. It’s in the direct path of getting a gust of wind. We had to keep our jackets on for most of the time. That and we would have seen more of the decorations if we weren’t placed there but other than that it was a decent experience.

Hostess was extremely unfriendly. We sat at table by hostess stand and I don’t think she smiled once or greeted anyone that came in. Went for brunch, but no brunch menu because of Miracle pop up. Several people asked about it while we were there, so it wasn’t just us thinking they would have brunch, especially since brunch menu is still listed on website. Food was expensive and just okay. We ordered hot chocolates for our kids and they were awful.

Definitely the only thing going for this place is the Christmas decor - super cute but the food is sub par and the drinks were eh - beer was warm. Too many other great places to eat in Charleston to come back here.
