Four retired guys went out to lunch while their wives were at book club. They came to Rutledge cab company on St Patrick’s Day, enjoyed amazing Ruebens, great brews, and came home to their wives happy. What’s not to like?

The food is different from last year :( fries are different and seemed frozen and menu is different. They use to have amazing cinnamon rolls but they are no longer offered. There were no specials for Sunday brunch offered. Good not great.

We had brunch; food was very good but candied bacon was not our favorite. For brunch we would have liked to have a regular bacon option. Otherwise we enjoyed our experience.

Food was good, but not hot when it arrived at the table. My hamburger bun top was burnt...but the rest of the burger was delicious! It was a busy night, so I understand the challenge. Great service as usual!

The food was good overall. My wife ordered the salmon salad with the salmon medium - it was a little under cooked. I had a burger and fries which were great. My wife had a cocktail which was great. A little disappointed that they have pared down their menu. The menu is now more typical pub/bar food with less unique options.

Food was average. First table we sat at was completely off balance and moved a good 2 inches one way or the other. Next table was by the kitchen which wasn’t very romantic for Valentine’s Day. I should have done more research as far as a romantic setting goes. The staff was absolutely amazing. Many compliments to our waiter that night.

Had a reservation for Valentine’s Day. They sat us in a door way and when we asked to move the area they had us was extremely loud. Food and drinks were fair but way to overpriced.

Four of us each had a delicious meal. Our only issue was the noise level. We tried three tables before we settled on one at which we could hear each other... inside watching the kitchen, which we all enjoyed!

We tried Rutledge when visiting Charleston.

Parking was an issue. They were crowded for Burger Monday’s.

The milkshake of the month was barely flavored. Was expecting a chocolatey peppermint, and it tasted like regular vanilla. Was expecting something special for $8.

The okra fries were great and I would definitely order them again.

The burgers were okay.

Great Gastro-pub fare. For new takes on old favs like the BLT or burgers, this is a great place to eat and hang out. I must say the mac and cheese was a tad watery in my opinion.

The brunch food was not that good. The BLT had so much bacon on it that I had to eat it with a fork and take off more than half and I love bacon. They do not serve coffee items for brunch or have anyway to make them and my husbands corned beef hash was tough and he removed it from his Benedict. I was disappointed. The home fries were the best thing I ate.

A great place to go with an interesting menu, good drinks, reasonable prices, and parking. Apple cider mimosa a hit! Mac and cheese a sub-par side side dish. Poke bowl, fried fish sandwich, and fried chicken salad all big hits.

French onion soup had no taste but the manager took care of it and the chef agreed. Ordered the cider mimosa description said brown sugar rim guess the bartender didnt feel like the extra effort. But the burger and fries were done well and great

Rutledge was hitting on all cylinders today! We’ve ate here several times before but this was first time for brunch and it was DELISH! Service was attentive, plenty of choices & reasonable prices. Non-grit eaters need to try theirs. I’m telling ya, DELISH!
