Our server had zero personality and wasn’t personable at all. But I will say that Brian that expedited our food was wonderful and made it nice.

We were celebrating our twenty fifth wedding anniversary and had an incredible meal and experience. The staff was cordial and attentive. The food was perfect. We ordered the surf and turf, and the meal was prepared to perfection. One of the best experiences we have had in the Charleston area.

Food was good, but if you prefer BYOB type restaurants, this may not be your style. Was too loud for us. Food service was also very slow on a Saturday night. We ordered french fries as an appetizer b/c we were starving - it took at least 20 minutes for them to come out.

We started at the roof top bar. I had a great drink. Would have ordered a 2nd but wasting willing to pay another $10. The view wasn’t the greatest.
We had dinner and really enjoyed our plates. I had the lobster Alfredo and my husband had a shrimp and scallop dish. Both very good. Wish i remembered our servers name. He was awesome. Very friendly and suggested many places for us to visit during our trip.
Would eat there again.

The Brunch Buffet has classic Charleston staples and a layout that is easy to maneuver. Very accommodating to our large group of 14 and the service was friendly and exceptional.

It was good ambience and service was Great but I have to give a 3 stars because we had to ask for 2 of the meals one of them being an appetizer when we saw that everybody else was eating their entrees and one of our guest didn’t even get his meal.

Good, not great. Stars attempts to have two things at once, a roof top party bar and a high end dining room. Unfortunately it’s hard to enjoy a nice meal with large parties making their way past your table to the roof top bar, and bouncers at every corner. My wife ordered a $25 rotisserie chicken that was just okay. I had a $38 ribeye with great flavor but it wasn’t as warm as I would have liked. The sides were room temp on both of our plates. When we went to the roof top my wife’s only comment was “what are we supposed to see?” No view from what we could find, just a rowdy party. Not worth the money, and definitely not deserving of the 4 star rating on Opentable.

We ate a lot of good food while we were in Charleston but this was the best meal we had. The white truffle risotto and chicken were amazing. Our waiter was very nice and the service was good. I would definitely go back for their food.

Something was going on in the kitchen the night we were there. It was a busy Friday night. They were running out of food and orders for everyone around us were wrong. Our food was right but no flavor and not good for the price. Our server was new and missed our cocktail orders several times. If I had not been before, I probably would not go back.

I thought the food was good, but my ribeye came out only luke warm, and the rest of my food on my plate was only luke warm. A steak should come to the table sizzling, like it just came off the grill.

The service was good, our server was attentive.
