Charleston
About the restaurant
Bricks & Barrels is a steak and seafood experience voted three consecutive years 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.

The staff was friendly, and professional. The food was served in a timely fashion, and was tasty. The ambiance was laid back, with the Barrel Booth being a personal favorite location to sit. I have been to this business multiple times, and will definitely come back.

BEST PLACE TO GRAB A BEER AT SNOWSHOE
Classic Americana cuisine finds interesting twists and the flare of modern recipes. The warm atmosphere and reimagined menu pairs perfectly with any one of the many WV craft beers that are always in stock.
