5Church is an excellent dining experience. Excellent food, great atmosphere and above average service. I personally recommend the NY Strip. Probably one of the top 2 or 3 steaks I have ever had. Highly recommend! More

Contemporary American | Downtown Charleston, Charleston

Great experience from the moment we arrived. The food is a taste extravaganza, meticulously prepared and presented. The staff is warm and friendly. Often Chef tasting formats can me too formal and stuffy for my liking. This was not that at all. The beautiful u shaped bar and rustic exposed brick walls provide a cozy, casual yet sophisticated atmosphere. We'll be back again next time we're in Charleston. More
