The atmosphere is really fantastic and we love the specialty drinks. They are expensive at $12-15 each, but it’s understandable. The service was good, too, but the food prices were simply too high. Starters: Chips and Queso $16 and Hummus $14. Sandwiches: Fish Sandwich $18 and Smash burger $17. We came hungry and left hungry.

The service wasn’t where it was last year. They were either understaffed or not trained. Each interaction was incredibly short: “you ready?”, “check?”, “round 2?”. Seemed to be running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Also, I recall there being more than 1 hot cocktail available last time. Now they have 1.

We went to Handcraft on Thanksgiving evening. When the reservation was made, we were not told there would be a 6 item menu. The choices were poor, and came to the table most unappealing. Not to mention, we were never even given the option of dessert since they ran out! Our server was a good guy, otherwise we would have walked out. Truly a disappointment.

Lovely holiday atmosphere and service from the entire staff. Limited turkey dinner special, which was expected, but it was a little off the mark. Turkey was cooked perfectly but the stuffing was way too salty. Interesting cranberry sauce which had lovely seasoning.

A bit more gravy and a dinner roll would have been a nice touch and at $30 a plate we thought that dessert should have been included. The Yippee Kay Ay.....MF....drink was amazing and the highlight of the meal.

Thanksgiving
There was a mix up with the menu. When I made reservations, they said we could order off menu. But when we were seated, we were informed that there were only 2 items on the thanksgiving menu.
Quite a disappointment

Atmosphere was cool. Loved the Christmas lights. However, we were less than impressed with the demeanor of the staff. The receptionist seemed despondent, and our server didn’t find his personality or hospitality until we asked for our check. We didn’t order any food. Prices were ridiculous, even for Charleston. At one point, the server asked if we were ready to order, but told us he’d give us a few more minutes before we even said one word. It felt like he decided for us. Overall, the place felt pretentious and very self-important. Would not recommend, and will not be returning.

They were very crowded so don’t know if that’s what lead to the delay with our meals but we waited almost 90 minutes for our entrees which was excessive. Thankfully we had a good waitstaff so at least got out appetizer & salads beforehand. My husband got the same chicken dish as he did the first time but didn’t like it as much this time. Loved the Bang Bang cauliflower though!

We had reservations for an early dinner. The service was personal and prompt. They have a very impressive cocktail menu, mine was delicious and the other cocktails I saw looked like works of art. We ordered the bang bang cauliflower that came quickly and was very good. At this point the visit was near perfect. The dining room is small and every time the staff went to service tables outside we were hit with a cold draft. I am not sure where we could sit to avoid it though. The restaurant slowly got busier and the wait for our entrees was significant. I got the pan roasted chicken upon the recommendation of the waiter. The chicken was good, but a small portion for the price. My potatoes were a bit under done, I notified the waiter and she returned quickly with a new side order. Again, a bit under done. All in all, I was underwhelmed with the entree. If invited out, I would go again, but with so many great restaurants in the area I don’t think I would make it a point to come back.

Thank you for your feed back, we are currently working on space heaters for our outdoor space. This should eliminate any cold drafts that you experienced. As far as the chicken dish not meeting your expectations, we truly apologize. If you are to come back and enjoy a dinner with us again, I'm sure another selection would meet or exceed your expectations. We hope to have the chance to serve you again, in hopes that we can take a near perfect visit to perfect .

They obviously are having staffing problems, I assume due to covid. The food took 1.5 hours to come out. The restaurant was less than 20% full. There was enough wait staff, but not very well trained. We cleared our own table had to ask several times for utensils, bread, water....But the food, once it came, was AMAZING. Like really excellent.
