Clean friendly environment with a very attentive staff, food was good but the overall menu is very heavily balanced toward rich and fried foods. Could benefit from a few vegetable additions even as side items. Overall a nice spot.

My kids and I went to the Macintosh to celebrate Mother's Day with a brunch.
We were seated on the back patio. It was a warm day and the patio was shaded, beautifully decorated and very relaxing.
Not only was the service friendly, attentive and knowledgeable, but the food was absolutely amazing. From the Poutine with pork belly, steak & eggs and Huevos Rancheros to the funnel cake and the sweet strawberry pancakes we received as a Mother's Day gift.
I cannot say enough good things about the restaurant and look forward to many returns whether it be another brunch, a quick happy hour or a nice dinner.

Our meal exceeded expectations. It was divine. The staff were knowledgeable and very attentive. The food was diverse and rich. We loved everything we ate. The scallops were our favorite. The bone marrow bread pudding is also a must have. I hope to go back soon!

The Macintosh blew my husband and me away in the best way possible! It was our first anniversary and they totally hooked us up and gave us the most incredible experience we could've ever asked for! You MUST get the bone marrow bread pudding, it's melt in your mouth DELICIOUS. All of the food was phenomenal, our server Mary Catherine and the manager Zach were out of this world generous and friendly, and overall my husband and I agreed that this was the best meal we have EVER experienced. We'll absolutely be coming back to visit on our next trip to Charleston!

As out of towers we asked a tour guide for one of his favorites. Exceptional food with wonderful service. One of the better meals I’ve enjoyed from the scallops appetizer to the steak dinner and ohhh the bone marrow bread pudding! ❤️ Highly recommend McIntoshs

Had dinner with friends. Food was great but scallops were way to small. Noise level is way too high. Could barely hear across the table. Don’t go here if you want a quiet relaxing dinner with friends.

Food is amazing. Burger is best around. And the green salad was so fresh and simple and perfect. The ribeye (which has some fancy name I can’t remember) was really special. I would definitely go back. Really great food

Based on previewing menu online ahead of time, looked very interesting. However, Mac-hattan was totally without the character (how is that possible if using Antica and Aperol and chocolate bitters?). Strawberry salad was almost all strawberries and ham was omitted (thanks to waitress for noticing). Main courses tasted OK, but we were not encouraged to order separate sides nor specifically told that the accompanying components to the meat/fish were merely flavoring garnishes. Would bet bread that was served came direct from supermarket. Don't really understand the 4.5 stars this place has on Open Table. Given the above, we would have been a bit happier if prices weren't as high as they were.

We have eaten at The McIntosh in both of our last two visits to Charleston. Both times the Tilefish and Black Bass were delicious. I rated last year a “5” and this year a “3” because of the root vegetables that accompanied this year’s bass. They were primarily radishes which are about the only vegetable I don’t enjoy.
When I wrote a review of my experience, I was contacted immediately by Meredith, the GM. She apologized for the meal not living up to my expectations and invited me to come back and give them another try on our next visit to Charleston. She said the meal would be on her.
Rarely does one experience that kind of follow up and customer care from a restaurant.
She won me over with her her kindness and desire to make things even better the next time. I am very impressed and give the overall rating of “5” because of Meredith’s follow up and concern for customer satisfaction.

Upside: Great menu and very good food. Downside: We waited over 20 minutes past our reservation time, and service (though friendly) was less than attentive, even when the restaurant was half empty. Perhaps it was just this one time - I'd go back based on the food and atmosphere, for sure.

Everything was incredible. We arrived early & were seated immediately. The manager took our wine order quickly and had a great recommendation. Our server was attentive and helpful. Everything we ordered was spot on. Scallops were divine. Ricotta on toast was a great starter. The pasta was perfectly seasoned. The swordfish was charred lightly and again, cooked perfectly. Thank you chef! We will be back!

The food was only okay at best- both our dishes were very salty. He recommended I try the steak as it was their signature dish. It was just - meh. I’ve had better or the equivalent anywhere else.

Our second visit - wonderful, delicious food. Our server was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Our only "complaint" was that we were under the impression that the truffle fries were a complimentary gift from the chef - but we were charged for them. We will definitely go back.
