If you are looking for the most delicious hand crafted cocktail, this place is for you. The bartenders are meticulous at making your drink memorable and perfect. This was our second time here, and we tried different drinks than the first time and they have all been equally incredible!

Great atmosphere! Seamless reservation experience, our table was ready early. Lots of craft cocktails and extensive spirit list. Everything we ordered was spectacular, seafood very fresh and big portions even though prices were a little on the high end. Would recommend and definitely go back. Perfect combination of cocktail bar and fine restaurant

We left just a few minutes after we were seated. The greeters were very rude. The server never showed up after a few minutes. It was loud and noisy. And it had a terrible smell in the back. They sat us in a really sad little table and we just got a bad vibe and left.

Great experience. My family and I went for brunch and had the outside courtyard to ourselves. Nice variety of food choices and the mimosas were just how we like it - champagne with a little orange juice! The waiter was very nice and attentive. 10/10 recommend

We had an awesome server, Bryce who kept the drinks and food coming. The bartender personally came to our table to discuss bourbon. The wings, ribs, street corn, cheese board and Brussel sprouts were all excellent. We will be back on our next visit to Charleston. I recommend the Rusty Chain coctail.

My friend had your wings and called them the best wings he's ever had.

The drinks were delicious and came out fast.

My wife and I had a reservation at 7:30 for our first honeymoon dinner. We started with the fried Brussels sprouts which were delicious. Then we tried the literal fall off the bone barbecue wings and excellent sweet corn. The ambiance of the restaurant is definitely classy and reminiscent of the time period. All of the staff and management were engaging, mindful and fun. Highly recommend

Fabulous! One of best places we went to in Charleston. The drinks are unique and delicious. They serve the food with a creative slant. The roasted brussels sprouts are a must have. The shrimp and grits have tomatoes and wilted kale, a supper yummy twist. We had the roasted chicken wings, I have never eaten wings before but the flavors on these with the dry rub was to die for.

The CHS Artisan Cheesehouse Buratta, Whipped Ricotta Toast, and Flounder (Catch of the Day) were outstanding with portion sizes appropriate for sharing. And, the Rusty Chain and Aged 547 Manhattan were perfect!

It was a great experience! we sat at the bar, and the bartenders were so much fun to chat with. Their craft cocktails were so tasty, and when i didn’t love mine the bartender fixed it and added things so that I would enjoy it more. We can’t wait to go back.

Delicious! Brussel sprouts are a must try. Their food is flavorful but not in an overpowering way. My husband and I were very happy with the food and the overall experience. Great specialty drink menu - highly recommend the beet vodka sour or the Manhattan.
