Steakhouse
Bricks & Barrels is a steak and seafood experience recently voted as Charleston's Favorite Restaurant in the annual People's Choice Awards. Known for its unique ambience that relaxes the mind and rejuvenates the spirit, Bricks & Barrels features four semi-private dining areas that give the sensation of dining inside a whiskey barrel. The restaurant’s interior features wooden whiskey barrels used as dining tables contrasted against the rustic brick façade. But the food & drinks are the highlight, with the Green Tomato Napoleon being a favorite appetizer. The Mediterranean Chicken was nominated for Charleston's best dish by The Food Guy, a local food critic: bone-in chicken breast braised in capers, figs and olives created a beautiful symphony of flavors (sweet, tart, salty, earthy) on a colorful, gorgeously presented plate." Charleston's Favorite Bartender Drew serves specialty cocktails, local craft beer and award-winning wines. Memories are made at Bricks & Barrels.

    For a while now I have given up on Charleston for date night in general. We use to go to Fifth quarter when they were still around but chose to venture outside of our comfort zone and try new things. Hands down the best restaurant I have been to in Charleston thus far. I strongly recommend this location. The food was perfection, the service was fast, the noise level was low but they still played music which was appropriate and great for conversation. I’d say it was a little pricy but we got our moneys worth because the food was so good and the mood was perfect. All around great place and will definitely come back soon !

    A brick-walled eatery with a handul of wine barrel booths along part of a wall is a clever concept, but execution falls flat. Instead of a fun experience, it was just blah. It started when we checked in and asked for a barrel booth and the bored hostess said they were full. Not true, I saw a bit later. A couple were occupied and a couple were for large parties, but one or two were simply stacked with dirty dishes from the previous guests. Our waiter did the bare minimum, taking our order and escaping as quickly as possible. It was that way the whole time; he made brief, perfunctory appearances and quickly vanished. Not sure where -- tables across the room were not cleaned and no one was trying. Maybe they were understaffed, but the staff was largely invisible and apparently not taught 'if you have time to lean you have time to clean.' The food, mediocre. My wife sent back her limp, soggy salad. The other sides may have been prepared, but looked and tasted canned. No presentation, just stuff on a plate. My $54 ribeye was tender and juicy but bland. My wife's pork chop was flavorless. We didn't bother with dessert. We had looked forward to this experience for a long time and regretted it. Everything we had could be found better prepared at half the price at a steak chain.

    Shelia, our server, was delightful. She was quick with menu item recommendations and also very personable. The chilean sea bass was spot on delicious as was the dinner special, red snapper. Loved the laidback warm atmosphere too.

    Service was excellent. My husband had the red snapper and he said it was very good. The swordfish I had was not very good. The glaze on it was fantastic but the fish had a strong fishy odor and taste. Overall, experience was good. Bricks and Barrels is still one of our favorite restaurants.

    The food and atmosphere is always great! I rated it 4 out of 5 because though our service was amazing, it did appear our waiter was working really hard serving a lot of tables. In the beginning there were longer period of wait time to put food in or waiting for food.
