Located downstairs from its sister lounge, the Cocktail Club, and bearing the one-time name of the alley that runs alongside the building, the Macintosh explores the breadth of Lowcountry flavors in a comfortable setting. Executive Chef Stu Rogers and Chef Partner Jeremiah Bacon showcases their talent for creating upscale, American cooking using the seasonal bounty provided by his local farmers and fishermen throughout The Macintosh's menu.

Our meal was AMAZING! We shared the truffle fries and a side of bacon. I had the Duke while my boyfriend had the Mac Attack. Both dishes were excellent! We also tried the bacon Bloody Mary and the pickle Bloody Mary. Hands down the best brunch we had while in Charleston.

Overall, we had an excellent experience at Macintosh. Preparation, presentation, and flavors of our entrees (flounder and pork schnitzel) were imaginative and different-and of course enjoyable. Among so many restaurants in Charleston, it's hard to stand out but we found that to be the case here. We also shared the squash blossom starter; it was a combination of tastes and textures that brought together vegetable, fruit, meat, cheese that all balanced well together. Service was spot on with the right amount of attention, and knowledgeable descriptions of any dish we asked about. When one of our drinks turned out not to be quite what was expected, not only was it switched out for a fine replacement (recommended by our waitress), but bar staff came to our table to better understand what might be wrong and, when asked, to explain the mixture of ingredients in the drink. We would return and would recommend others to try Macintosh.

We did the 3 course chef selected meal and it was superb! Excellent selections, amazing delicious food. Ian at the bar was excellent at drink selection ideas especially gin. We had a 100/100 experience and would go back again.

An overnight stay in Charleston led us to The Macintosh and we are so glad it did. Really good food, excellent service (Tessa), yummy cocktails, perfect portion sizes and a short walk from the Hotel Bennett made this a great choice for us. We appreciate its farm to table menu and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Let’s just say that when your group is still discussing how delicious dinner was four hours later, it’s a definite winner.

I've been fortunate to eat at some incredible restaurants and I would include The Macintosh as an incredible restaurant. Rarely does everything in a meal come together perfectly ... The Macintosh accomplished it on our meal. Patrick our server was so knowledgable ... friendly ... and attentive! Food was perfectly prepared and I'd say the Bread Pudding was killer and their house salad with peaches was also incredible. Highly recommend The Macintosh.

What stood out the most about The Macintosh is typically you have great, friendly service and the food doesn't live up to the hype OR you have magnificent food but you struggle with a waiter/waitress that has the worst timing or won't refill your drink. Not only was the food at the Macintosh amazingly cooked to perfection with the CAB Deckle that we both had, but the waitress and servers were so friendly, incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of the menu, and very prompt with menu courses and of course our drinks. It was definitely pricey but well worth the price to pay for an elegant meal for you and your date in downtown Charleston.

We showed up early and ended up just sitting at the bar. We had had a late lunch and weren’t that hungry. Shared appetizer and the burger and both were so delicious. Service was great and very friendly and hospitable. Typical southern charm!

First visit to the restaurant. It was a Monday night and pretty quite they had good deal on wine, food was good but the kitchen was very slow taking over an hour for entree's to arrive. However they did bring 2 free appetiser's as an apology. Overall OK but nothing special.

We LOVE The Macintosh! Food is amazing - so creative and delicious! Service is on point. There was a delay with our entrees but we didn’t even care because they handled it with such grace and professionalism. The deckle does NOT disappoint, and the fries that come with the burger are worth the trip all by themselves. Highly recommend.
