Hands down my favorite restaurant in Charleston after one visit. Awesome environment and even better food and drinks. It’s a business causal style restaurant but welcome to all. Yes you may have to spend some money but completely worth it. Bennett was our server and gave us the best service that I have ever had. (I have ate out all over the country) He had great recommendations as well as great knowledge about all of the food and drinks. He didn’t up sale on the most expensive thing on the menu. It felt genuine. Great conversation with him and more than perfect service!! Ask for Bennett if they allow that. More...
My favorite happy hour spot. They have several drink options on their happy hour and some appetizers. The lava rock is a must do. It is really fun to do either with a couple or a group. My group if 4 sat at the bar and had amazing service. The food was delicious and the drinks were just as spectacular. Definitely recommend. More...
Absolutely delicious, service was excellent as well!!!
Awesome evening! The staff really made it special!
Delicious Steak for appetizer and main course. You can't beat that! Must try when în downtown CHS.
The best meal I ever ate! I highly recommend this restaurant. The food and staff were both phenomenal.

Good food and well seasoned. Some very spicy.
Great food great staff and an awesome atmosphere. If you want the Charleston Experience at a steak house look no further.
Have been to Burwell’s couple of times, food is great, love the hot rock concept, I’ve read some people’s negative reviews, not true, service was amazing Cathy was our server and she was personal friendly and helpful, other people stopped by and asked if we needed anything when they pass by our table, the restaurant decor is very nice , drinks are very good and overall a great experience.
Good spot. Food was great
OMG! Nice upscale restaurant
Great good, great atmosphere.
Loved it. Best steak I've had.
Amazing experience! I love a great steakhouse that brings the quality of the overpriced, fancy joints, but at a reasonable price and casual atmosphere. I had the filet and everyone else had the Wagyu. Everything was perfectly cooked and delicious. The service was outstanding. I would highly recommend this as the best steakhouse in Charleston even though it's the only one I've been to, because I've been to many all over the country and I know they don't get much better than this. More...
The food here was amazing, but it's extremely expensive. I think it was worth it anyways, but if you don't want to spend too much money, this is not the place for you
I wish there were more stone fire options...they only have 1 appetizer with a choice of 3 proteins to choose from tuna beef and waygu. I recommend getting the waygu its delicious . More...
Great experience awesome ceviche and got the parm frites and the wagyu steak. I had a great waiter named Peter who had lots of great recommendations for things to do in the area.
Food was out of this world, and the service was good - it was a bit busy so our drinks took a little longer than expected, as did the food. Once everything got rolling, though, we were on cloud nine. We had varying cuts of steak, as well as other entrees of seafood, risotto and rice noodles, with accoutrements that were perfectly cooked. The Wagyu beef and accomoanying dip was outstanding. The cocktails to start with before we sat were well and quickly made. All in all, while it was a bit slow to start (about 90 minutes from entry to entree) it was an outstanding experience and would happily recommend this restaurant and come again. More...
Loved it. My favorite steak restaurant in Charleston
Always a great time. My band is good friends with Don and JoJo, and those guys are some of the best people we know in Charleston. High quality food/drinks, nice atmosphere, and great events! More...
Exceeded our expectations on our anniversary! The deviled eggs were tender and delish. My mouth is watering just writing this review! Definetly recommend.
Check out Tim at the roof bar. Great food.
Excellent all the way around. The server was very engaging in conversation. The food was perfectly cooked.
Filet was so good I don't want to brush my teeth, just savor the flavor. Friendly staff that works as a real service team. Filet mignon was awesome.
Great fun cooking on the hot black rock and terrific and personable service
Best place in the historic district for Happy Hour. The "Hot Rock" Filet is the ike of my favorite dishes ever.
Best restaurant in all of Charleston. Staff and servers are the most polite and helpful that I have ever met. Food was gourmet quality at an affordable price. Owner greets and ensures everything is to top standard. Will be back for sure!!! More...
Exceptional bar, bar tender, and wine list, plus best happy hour menu in town
My husband and I had our wedding reception dinner here Saturday (June 1st) and honestly, our expectations were exceeded. Burwell’s General manager went above and beyond to make everything absolutely perfect, even down to cutting and serving our cake himself! Theresa and David were exceptional servers and never missed a beat. So courteous and attentive. The food was delicious as well! We had such an amazing, beautiful evening and we owe a huge thank you to this restaurant and it’s staff!!! More...
Nice upstairs venue for a group meeting. Excellent service
Excellent food and great atmosphere
Had the Wagoo beef on the lava rock you cook at the table as a appitizer
Blown away by the food and the service. Best meal of my life! Our dessert is pictured
Great steak house, interesting starter steak chips you cook like fundo but on a 700 degrees piece of granite. We also had the greatest waiter east of New Orleans.
Very good restaurant
Outstanding meal, awesome staff. It is a must destination place when in Charleston.
I wish I could give this place 6 stars! The food is spectacular--the hot rocks are a MUST, my husband and I were blown away by the hangar steak, and the apps and sides are to die for! On top of all of that, the service is incomparable! Our server was fabulous and the manager, Don, was so knowledgable about the menu and the wine, and went out of his way several times to make sure we were taken care of and enjoying everything! Burwells is a must go!! More...
This was the place I took my wife to when I proposed and for our anniversary. It has some of the best food ever with staff that are happy to talk to you. The atmosphere is great (low light with the dark wood coloring, kinda like a rustic but morden mix). I can wait to come again. More...
Delicious Mac and Cheese. The beet salad was pretty good too.
Great service and great food
We were looking for an amazing steak and were not disappointed. Expensive but worth it.
John Thomas continues to put his full effort into making sure everyone is acknowledged and happy with his restaurant. He pays attention to so many details from his original recipe for deviled eggs, his home made ginger ale for the Moscow mules to the specialty beef offerings like Hanger Steak. Definitely visit john and the team there during your Charleston visit. More...
Does it get any better than the man Joe
Simply said, great steaks, good sides, and great service. We had reservations and were seated quickly and it was pretty packed. Waitress was super nice and helpfull; I brought a bottle and she handled wine service well keeping our glasses filled. The Hot Rock Appetizer is a must, fun and delicious. I had the NY Strip and she had the Filet, both were perfectly cooked, though both could have used a bit more seasoning if you are not relying on any of the sauces. Loved the loaded mashed potatoes and veggies were good. Great experience overall, thought corkage was high compared to other places I've been. More...
Great food and drinks. We are repeat customers. Never a bad dish.
Best steak I've ever had! Amazing meal. The hostess and general manager need to calm down though they were way too high-strung trying to herd us into seats as quickly as possible
Had the Pasta with Mussels and Shrimp. Everything was delicious. Definitely order the Hot Rocks Appetizer!
An excellent choice for a premium dinner experience. The rolls to start with are to die for with a butter that pairs so excellently with it. After this we had the Wagyu hot stones which were also perfect. The hanger steak I got was cooked to perfection and paired well with the mashed potatoes which were perfectly creamy. The Mac and cheese however was a little to rich for my tastes however this would be the only complaint I have for the whole evening. The s'mores to end with we're also excellent being extremely light and fluffy. The service overall was attentive and kind. Definitely an excellent choice for dinner in Charleston. More...
Burwells is one of our go to restaurants when in Charleston, their food and service are excellent. We had the smores for dessert and they did not disappoint! Bennett was a knowledgable and friendly server. Highly recommend! More...
Excellent dining experience.
Yummy yummy and outstanding service
Awesome food and service!!
Second visit and it was even better the second time. Food was amazing band service was spectacular.
Great service and even better food. Staff goes out of their way to accommodate special reservations and I thoroughly enjoy the experience every time I visit.
We made reservations for our 2nd anniversary. It was our first time at this restaurant and we had a great evening. Impeccable service and the food was amazing.
Fantastic food 16oz rib eye cooked perfectly. Brussel sprouts were veg of the day. They were fantastic
It took them a while to seat us even though we had a reservation. Once we saw the entrees....compared to the price....Took a few bits and THATS when I could taste the price. Great dishes! Friendly service.I stopped eating just to review them. I’m still here.(I didn’t enjoy the extremely thick mashed potatoes) More...
Great Great Great Food.....World Famous Experience
Always great food and good service.
Great food and great service!!
Everyone talks about Halls Chop House, but this place easily surpasses them. The food here is the best it gets.
Burwells made our friend's birthday a special occasion with complimentary dessert and champagne. This also helped ease the long wait. The service staff was very friendly and the steak is amazing. The hot stone app was a fun and delicious experience. More...
Good food. Good service. Went here for Charleston Restaurant week.
It's expensive, but worth it! Try the appetizer with the steak you cook yourself on a 700 degree stone.
Nice chill bar, with fantastic happy hour bites. They have wonderful American wines by-the-glass and some nice beers, but it's definitely place to grab a well-mixed cocktail.
Filet is supposed to be 8 oz, but seemed a little small. Steaks arrive on huge plates with nothing else so maybe it made it look that way. The mashed potato side is enough for 2-3 people. The macaroni and cheese is good and can be enough for 4. I missed not seeing any creamed spinach which is a steakhouse staple. The collards were good. Overall good, but our server felt the need to describe just about everything on the menu. More...
Caleb's Go Pro Show
Dear vegetarians, (or even people who don't care for steak)Eat a steak at Burwells! I bet your taste buds will change your eating habits. The best steaks and food in the entire world. More...
Without doubt, the best steak I've ever had. Superb service.
Outstanding and tasty
We have been there twice in 2 weeks because the service is bar non, some of the best service ever. Bennett was our waiter last night and helped our waiter the time before. He was so attentive to us and made sure we where well taken care of while also being a great conversationalist. The food was fantastic with a great unquie appetizer. This place is quickly becoming our go to place for dates, special events, or just a night out in Charleston. More...
This is a hidden treasure which I will consider it my new spot.
We went in for happy hour and got all of their cocktails on there. Everything was awesome! Order their Parmesan and Herb fries! They were amazinggggg. We also ordered duck confit and prime rib ragu, but we devoured it before we could take a picture. Order the brussel sprouts as well! Also delicious. More...
I actually arrived here for an event with my school. The servers were extremely pleasant and attentive and the food was fantastic!!
My girlfriend and I went to celebrate our anniversary. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Our server was Kathy and she was very knowledgeable and friendly. We did the hot rock appetizers which was interactive and very fun and delicious. We both had steaks which we loved. We got the Mac n cheese which was good, as well as the smashed potatoes and the market greens which were amazing. We were stuffed and didn't ask for desert but they gifted us a crem brulee for our special occasion. Very nice! They also house make their own ginger beer, and their whiskey mule was great! More...
Food and service is one of the best in Charleston. You will be able to find a seat at the bar before 9 PM.
Great place to meet after work
Most amazing place in downtown Charleston. Great food and great service. I recommend the hanger steak with scallops!
Great food and friendly staff
Edward G. Klaus
Bar staff exception outstanding; food exceptional!!
Wow! One of the best dining experiences I've had this year! Beautiful and comfortable building. Top level customer service from the hostess and wait staff. Appetizers and entrees were simply delicious. Across the board, an excellent night out with the family. Yes, it's a bit pricey. But, if you want to "level-up" from your typical chain restaurants, Burwell's is the place. More...
Great place great staff a must
Highly recommend, the rock wagyu appetizer was out of this world, my girlfriend's steak came out perfect, but mine was a little overcooked. Waved down who I thought was the manager, turned out to be the owner and he immediately sent it back and another steak came out perfect, also brought out another side of fries so they were fresh. Great food and amazing service with no hesitation to make sure my order was exactly how I wanted it. Will visit again when I go to Charleston. More...
Delicious food and wonderful service. Definitely recommend, and we'll be back again!
Best food I had while visiting Charleston. The wagyu was amazing and our bartender Will was top notch. Hope to see you all again soon!
This was simply the best meal I have had in a long time. The ribeye was perfect . The rolls, mac and cheese and potatoes are top notch. A+ all around. Our server was excellent. Highly recommend. More...
Jose Davila Quintanilla
Nice place. Super hard to be special in Charleston.
Solid happy hour and oysters. Would come back for dinner and wished we could have.
The cocktails are amazing as well as the food. Ordered the stone fire tenderloin. It was delicious.
Went here for my birthday and they definitely didn't disappoint! The entire meal was absolutely amazing! Everything we ordered was delicious... drinks, appetizers, entrees, sides and dessert. The filet had to have been one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. It was pricey but well worth it, you will not be disappointed. I will definitely go back. More...
Best wagyu steak..hands down
Excellent upscale steak house. Has outdoor bar upstairs.We have been several times and always enjoy your restaurant. The food is delicious and atmosphere nice and service were great. The kitchen/floor manager stopped by which we like and even noted our server for future visits. More...
We had a wonderful time here, our server was excellent, he took plenty of time explaining the menu!! Our food was amazing!! Highly recommend!!!
Traveling For Pennies
It's rare that we give 5Stars. Not because we're hard to please, but because I believe if there's s referral to give from us, it should be very HONEST. This place gave the most awesome experience to our clients. I as well as them are very impressed. Special thanks to Chef Gee and the Pastry Chef for the knowledge and experience. Also, to the owners who were very personable and attentive. Great for romance, hanging out, or small groups. Our clients visiting Charleston, SC, will have this as a choice of fine dining. More...
The best steak in Charleston
Fine dining at its best.
This place is very cool and very excited about their place. You could tell these guys enjoy what they are doing. Pastry chef came out and told us all about his lemon bar. Very good. Must see place
This place was amazing. The waiter was a sweetheart. The food was amazing and the service really fast! 10/10.
Love the place. Great food, great service in an awesome atmosphere..
I have nothing but great things to say about Burwell’s. We celebrated our wedding this past weekend there and it was amazing. The food was soooo good, the staff was great and very accommodating. John and Ken were a pleasure to work with. The atmosphere was great and it’s such a beautiful restaurant inside and out. We chose Burwell’s for their super chill rooftop bar and the steak is to die for! Thanks again for being so great to us and making our wedding day so special! More...
One of the best Manhattans I've ever had
We had absolutely great Steaks here. It is a bit pricey, but the service is perfect and the Steaks are worth it, plus you are in the centre of town.
Love love loved it! You have to get the table side grilled apps!
Was there Saturday celebrating my birthday. My daughter live in Charleston & made reservations. Our meal was delicious! Our waiter, Will was awesome! Definitely will recommend this place to friends & family. More...
Food is delicious
This place is spectacular. From the decor to the food. We were bar hopping for happy hour and stopped in to check out specials. We hit the jackpot here, the drinks were cheap and they had a special for their 5 year anniversary selling some items on their menu for just $5! We had the wagyu burger and tuna tartare, both were tasty. The staff was friendly and helpful. They even gave us suggestions for what happy hour spots to go to next. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for good food and great service. More...
As regular visitors to downtown Charleston we are always looking for new options for dining out. Burwell's did not disappoint. Had the Filet and it was fabulous, so was the Mac and Cheese. From drinks to dinner, every component of the meal exceeded my expectations. Thank you, Chandler for your fine and attentive service!! We will definitely return on our next visit. More...
Great place, excellent service, best steakhouse in Charleston.
Seriously one of my top 5 steaks I've ever had in my life, and I know a good steak. Madly impressed, butcher's cut is a must.
Great service, food is excellent, try fillet mignon and you won't be disappointed
Good Happy Hour.. the Wagu beef was good
Always wonderful food
Great ambience, service and food.
The food and service are outstanding!!! It is a little pricy but well worth it for special occasions.
My husband and I went here for date night and we each had the New York strip. Which was THE best steak I have ever had in my life. My husband also had the deviled eggs which he said were amazing. Will be coming back again and letting our friends know. More...
If you want the best steak in town go here!! Hall's is good...Burwells is better. The Belle Glos goes great with any cut they have on the menu. I highly recommend Allen. He is one of the best servers you will find downtown. More...
The best steaks and scallops ever. If you like great friendly service and high quality food, go to Burwell's.
Good food prepared perfectly and served by awesome wait staff.
Extremely good steak and bar menu
Meg is a wonderful server who made us feel like we were dining in her home. Excellent food and drinks. The bartenders were great as well.
The place to go for family dinner in downtown Charleston. Food is indescribably delicious and service is top notch. 10/10
Best food ever!!
My wife made reservations for us last night for dinner, on Valentine's Day, and we were the only family of four that I could see, since every other table was a romantic couple. We were romantic too, but for those who have kids, you know that you can only romance so much when out to eat. Our waiter, Alan I believe, was excellent with the kids and although my daughter wouldn't interact with him, he kept trying to at least get her to smile. The food was outstanding. We got a cheese and meat board to start, and I also got the seafood chowder, which was fresh and superb. For the entrée, I got the flounder, my wife got a steak, and my son got the hot rock so he could cook his own steak at 700 degrees. We had enough room for dessert, so we shared a strawberry cheesecake and the smores, which are served on benne wafers with peanut butter mouse and a small marshmallow on top. Another outstanding visit to Burwell's, well worth the price of admission. More...
The 'hot rock' app and deviled eggs plus a truly professional staff makes this a staple resturant on my list of personal favorites.
Amazing food, great ambiance, gotta try wagyu hot rock, deviled eggs and hanger steak! Great wine selection!
Amazing food and drinks with excellent service. Flawless experience!
Great steak and great service. I try to get there as much as I can. My son begs me to take him here.
This is a fantastic place. Great service from the very top to bottom. Food is very good. I just loved the square deviled eggs and they have one great burger with parmesan fries. Try the Mexican mule and peppered cucumber martini. So good. They take pride in their food and service. You will not be disappointed. I'm coming back in February, because of the eggs, the staff, food, and that martini. More...
Can't beat the happy hour prices for the quality. Great local craft brews for 5, definitely returning.
Tremendous menu with really well prepared food. Wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable but somewhat pushy. Food was great BUT overpriced.
Amazing food and service! Must go if you are in Charleston.
Beat steak ever!! The menu is a la carte and prices were reasonable. I do wish they had a better selection of appetizers and salads. He is a pic of the smore dessert.
Dessert stop for culinary tour, the lemon bar was prefect ending to the day!
The food and service was great. Was different type of happy hour. Had a heated lava rock with to sear your filet mignon to a perfect temperature for your liking. Our bartender was from St Thomas. Made us specialty drinks. Would definitely recommend trying this restaurant if you want to try something that a little out of the ordinary. More...
Food is great , atmosphere is superb!
Everything was wonderful.
Awesome steak served raw with an extremely HOT stone to allow you to cook each bite of steak to perfection. Great local secret at the end of Market Street.
Great place to party!
Amazing steak, make sure to try the stone cooked Waygu appetizer!
It's a wonderful environment with plenty of hospitality and great food. The bartending staff is probably the best in the port city. I love that place.
WAGU STEAK HANDS down best steak I’ve had in Charleston.
Nice and clean but very expensive.
This place was far and above expectations. It sits off by itself and was not packed to the brim so I was worried. Everything was hands down about this place. The service, the drinks, apps, and especially the steaks. Everything was cooked to perfection. On top of that, compared to some of the other steak houses, this place doesn't put a dent in your wallet. Food was equally good compared to any of the other steak houses you can pick. More...
Had a fantastic time! The service and meal was wonderful!
Steak is good, don't bother ordering the Wagyu steak salad however. Too many components. Do not blend well together. Service is good.
Great food and atmosphere.
My wife and I visited Charleston for our anniversary and after looking over all the steakhouses in town we decided on Burwell's. The wood fire grill is front center of the restaurant with the logs in plain view. The smell itself was enough to get my mouth watering. We we're sitted upstairs and next to some larger parties, but our dinner still felt intimate. I ordered the New York strip and my wife ordered the ribeye. Our food was out in no time and cooked to perfection. The Mac and cheese was also amazing but the star of the show was the steak. At the end of our meal our waitress (Meg) surprised us with a complimentary vanilla bean creme brulee with "happy anniversary" writen in chocolate on the plate. Overall we had a great time and left very very full, we will most definitely be back and I would recommend Burwell's to anyone looking for a quality meal. More...
Absolutely delicious steaks, with a semi-rustic atmosphere and unique variations on many dishes. The meat was tender and flavorful, and the wait staff was attentive and respectful, as well as politely conversational. If you're not concerned about the price (which I wasn't, only because I wasn't paying), the experience is even more enjoyable! Great place for a date (if you bought too much cash and it's reaching it's expiration date). More...
Awesome steak, food, and drinks!!! Best steak I ever had, Wagyu Filet, wow!!!
Hanger Steak is amazing!!!
Amazing food and atmosphere!
AWESOME experience all around! Friendly staff ,best wagyu beef ever,great experience
Great staff and food
Wonderful food and service
Wonderful Christmas Eve dinner. The Grouper over the deconstructed Clam Chowder was delicious!
Perfect, from beginning to end!
Great food. They have a steak to die for! It's a hybrid and my husband was the only one brave enough to try it and I was beyond jealous eating my filet (which was amazing and tender but not as good as there other steak) It is a must to try!
I love this place!!!!!
Food was delicious, service was outstanding. If I could give 10 stars, I would!
This was my time at Burwell’s Stone Fire Grill in Charleston, SC for my birthday celebration. Our waiter name was Will and he was awesome. I have waited tables before and know how hard the work can be, But Will was knowledgeable, full of energy, and he Customer Service was even better. We had an appetizer that he recommended it was Wagyu Rock and it was excellent. Everything was incredible. And I would recommend this restaurant and I would definitely recommend Will to be your waiter..... My birthday was a success.... More...
Has a room for a large private party. (We had 20 and there was room to spare.) Great food, great service. We enjoyed this very much.
Best deviled eggs ever! Also, the Aged Manhattan is the best in town.We came here for New Year's Eve dinner and they secured a table for two off to the side with candles- decent service, but the deviled eggs definitely put this place at a 5.
R Todd Williams
Had a great time
This is hands down, my favorite steak place in Charleston. Forget Halls, Burwell's is the place to go (and you won't break the bank as you would on Hall's mediocre offerings). Don't miss the hot stone appetizer, where they heat a lava stone to high temperatures so that it is about 700 degrees once it reaches your table. They sprinkle sea salt on top of it and you can sear your choice of meat on top and then dip it in one of their steak sauces. The house steak sauce is the best one in my opinion, and searing the meat at the high temperatures locks in the moisture, creating a juicy, tender morsel of meaty goodness. Their steaks are wood grilled and the absolute best. Wagyu is the meat of choice here and they rotate their offerings frequently. The best one I've had so far has been the Wagyu hanger steak (also available with the hot stone appetizer), which is very reasonable priced! I've tried the wagyu filet and their ribeye, but the hanger steak is still my favorite. The sides are all beautifully prepared and my favorites are the Mempkin Abbey mushrooms and the parm fries. They also offer chicken and pork and seafood entrees, but the steaks always distract me.Save room for dessert and try the creme brûlée. Delightfully light without an overly eggy taste. More...
This is one of my favorite places in Charleston!
This is the best restaurant in Charleston. Nothing else comes close. Steak that melts in your mouth and the service is amazing!
Great above prime cuts. Partnerships with suppliers. Our waitress Ann was phenomenal.
Best steak ever!
Perfect service! Perfect steak!
Fabulous food and experience! The appetizer was off the chain! Best steak and experience ever! I wish I could post a video of the meat being seared on the fire stones. Oysters were also delicious!
A Farm To Table restaurant that specializes in beef. Excellent food and nice dining environment. Upper average prices but worth it! Try the deviled eggs (see picture). More...
Don't know why I didn't come here sooner. Awesome atmosphere and food is even better. Came back again and damn if it wasn't just as good. Place is awesome ! The rooftop bar here is just as good. The ahi tuna nachos are incredible More...
Food was excellent. The steaks were cooked perfectly. The street corn was great! Enjoyed this place.
Good and service were top notch! The owner was also very personable and involved in making sure my group was care for all evening.
The best steak I have ever eaten. The service was unbelievable. The Mac and cheese was also at the top of tastes. The blue cheese dressing was the smoothest ever. The desserts were also so tasty.
Came with a larger group. Team service was solid. Wagyu Hangar Steak was incredible. If that is all I ordered this would have still been a five star review. Would also order the Mepkin mushrooms again. I will certainly be back. More...
A pleasing steakhouse with a terrific bartender.
This is my favorite steakhouse in Charleston! And they have great happy hour specials!
Exquisite steaks, knowledgeable staff, a pleasure. Chicago steakhouse, eat your heart out
Probably the best steak in town!
Only Halls comes close to for steak quality in Charleston. However the service and atmosphere is better at Burwell's, in my opinion.Fantastic all around experience. If you like steak you will love this place. More...
Charleston needed a place like this. It's a chic atmosphere on the lower end of the Charleston Market, they offer great steaks and in house cocktails. It's not cheap, but the quality and service make it worth the price. They also have a private dining room upstairs for parties. More...
We had Anne as our server and she was AMAZING! She treated us amazing as my husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. Food was absolutely fantastic! We will most definitely be returning! More...
I went here for a company dinner with a large party. It was really good, and the people there were really nice.
It's Burwells...always good food and friendly staff. Worst part is finding a place to park.
Ginger beer and mules terrific!
So delicious!!! Had a great tonight!!
Great atmosphere and friendly staff! Menu is fresh changed daily. Large selection and easy to please a large group all with different tastes! Try the hot rocks they are fun! My favorite is actually the chicken! It's a not well known little gem that we are glad we found! More...
Best steak in town.
We had our wedding rehearsal dinner here and we were blown away. From the top down everyone was so helpful and friendly, they made the night before almost as special as the big day. Our favorite bartender in Charleston, Chandler, work here. More...
Best happy hour food downtown. Great bar staff. Superb service!
Great food and service. Highly recommend the place.
Awesome service, great food, and fabulous atmosphere! Will be back!
Great, great steak selection. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. It is pricey, but worth it.
Food and service were awesome!
Steaks were perfect. Pillows in the booths made for a comfortable dining experience.
Spent the past 2 nights here. Food is fresh and plentiful. Friendly bar staff- they all seem to work together and enjoy their work. As we were leaving both nights, The owner came out to thank us for coming. He even remembered we were there the night before- and this place is quite busy. More...
Fabian martinez jr
Food was great. Had the waygu steak. Worth the money.
Enjoyed our first visit on a Friday night. Parking was easy in their adjacent lot, wish that was free with the $200 meal, but hey it was convenient. Food and service was great. We would go back. More...
Outstanding service! Awesome food
Gotta say that this place exceeded my expectations! You'll definitely spend over $100 easily but it's worth it. Prices are a little lower than say Hall's and the food is just as good. Wife had the filet mignon and I got the New York strip. Man both were tasty and flavorful. We were both on a trip to Flavor Town the entire time. Paired our steaks with their sauteed mushrooms and sprouts. Oh yeah we got the deviled eggs topped with candied bacon for an appetizer. Yes they were the More...
Had a delicious steak dinner: the food, the service, the atmosphere were all top notch. Highly recommend!
Hot rock appetizers are amaizing
Best restaurant in Charleston! Everything on the menu is amazing!
Expensive, but awesome food. The deviled eggs are fantastic
Get the Hanger Steak paired with the Brussels sprouts. You won't regret it!
-good selection on menu-staff friendly-we had reservations, but still took 20-30 minutes after to be seated-the hot rock appetizer was a hit...tasted great-overall great steak, cool atmosphere More...
Very cool setting, excellent waitress, best deviled eggs since Mama's, and the regular old 12 oz. Ribeye was dynamite! Just be sure you bring your wallet!
Interesting bar menu. Hot rock cook it yourself. Great staff.
Bobby J. Soto
One of the best kept secrets in Charleston. Burwell's has great happy hour deals on both food and drinks. You must definitely stop by.
I'm not sure where to even start with this review. My wife and I went to dinner last night with a mid-level expectation and were absolutely blown away. From the atmosphere to level of service, the presentation, and ultimately the food combined to create what was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The entire staff including our waiter JJ we're Simply the Best. If you are in Charleston and are looking for something new and fresh you definitely need to get to Burwells. More...
The flat iron steak was perfectly cooked and seasoned and one of the best steaks I've had in a long time. The lamb chops were absolutely delicious as well. From the extremely friendly staff, to the perfectly prepares food and drinks, it was overall a phenominal experience and would highly reccomend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great dining experience! Will be sure to visit again next time I'm in Charleston! More...
Good location good food. Server was fantastic. Me and my fiancé had our engagement dinner here. Try the wagyu appetizer on a hot rock best thing there.
Not five stars only because I went on the roof top deck and it was like totally different atmosphere than downstairs dining area. Rooftop looked like all hospitality workers got off their shifts and went there to watch baseball and cracked jokes with bartender. Good drinks though! And downstairs area looked welcoming and cozy!

Fun cook on a stone meal and great service from Alan!
Absolutely wonderful venue. The food was fantastic!! Chandler is the BEST!! She made the dining experience wonderful!! We will definitely be back!!
Wow! Great service, jazz combo was outstanding, food was stellar! I had pickled oysters for starter and they are wonderful - highly recommend! Our seafood was delicious and ambience wonderful with all that light jazz!! More...
We had the best experience for the second time. Filet's you could cut with a spoon they were so tender. Tried the hot rock Wagyu Beef appetizer and that was amazing. Service was great and she was very attentive to our needs.. Highly recommend this place. More...
Great staff. Good food and environment. Upstairs for larger groups.
One of my fav spots in CHS. Highly suggest one of the hot rock options. Delicious.
Best steak I have had. Server was perfect and was very friendly
Excellent wait staff and delicious food!
Our server was very good and the decor was warm and inviting. Food was very good but overpriced for this location.

The manager here truly cares about quality & the happiness of his guests.
Great atmosphere where you can have a good time and not feel like you need to be quite.

Excellent food and great service their hanger steak was definitely worth the visit.
Excellent food! The stone fire grilling on the table is a must for anyone who loves a new experience. Hanger steak was fantastic, melting in your mouth and not a stitch of grissel or fat. A touch pricey but worth the experience. More...
Outstanding meats, ingenious sides, delicious liquor drinks. Finally got to try to small batch Jefferson's Bourbon haven't found it elsewhere. Staff were a delight and courteous. Not uptight like you can get at other steak places. Superb, highly recommend for adults. More...
What separates Burwell's (next to Tabbuli) from other restaurants in Charleston is their "On the Rocks" appetizers, which you get to cook the meats on the heated block. The portions are small, and you are pretty much paying for the presentation. It's cool to try once. More...
We had a great dinning experience for our anniversary at Burwell's. They are known for searing items on super heated stones to lock in flavors. I called ahead and had roses on the table for my wife. She had the wreck fish special which had a very enjoyable combination of flavors and textures. I had one of the specialty steaks medium rare and it was cooked to perfection. We finished dinner with a brownie for her and the crème brulee for me. The brownie had the right amount of chocolate per bite to satisfy her desires and the crème brulee had that perfectly glazed top.The ambience was just right for our occasion so that we could talk to each other and enjoy the night. I plan to return with others in the future. More...
We had dinner Saturday 4/2/16 and All was Excellent! (Food, Service, and Drinks). Our first time to dine here but will not be out last. The steaks are excellent and the Seafood Catch of the Day was Outstanding!Our server, JJ, was also Great and explained all food dishes completely!The Deviled Eggs were Outstanding and Best Ever! More...

Deviled eggs were amazing and fries were very good. Great prices at happy hour.
I think the steak appetizer and s'mores rock this place!Service att he bar is the best in town.Little pricey but worth the flavor :)
We had another restaurant in mind but found that we would have been overdressed for it. Kind of happened to find this place are we are glad we did!! The deviled eggs were great and not filling like other appetizers could have been. The New York Strip was delicious as were the mushrooms that came with it. My wife had the Wagyu Zabuton Steak which we had never heard of, but was very good. Strong hint, medium is how both of these should be done. We also had the Creme Brulee for desert. Our waiter was an excellent help with making our dinner one to remember. All-in-all a fantastic anniversary dinner. We definitely be back next time we are in town. More...
Delicious. A bit pricey, but worth it.
One of the better kept secrets of Charleston. Wonderful menu and incredible service. If you are looking for classic fine dining with adequate portions, this is the place to be.
Whether a local or a visitor, Burwell's has become a must visit. Ask anyone on the street, read the reviews, see their rankings, and appreciate that it all came from doing something new and different in Charleston. Even Bon Apetite raved on this place while visiting for Grub Crawl. There are a lot of good steakhouses, for that reason Burwell's changed the approach with the more casual setting, triple trimmed cuts, farm to table ingredients and a strong chef driven approach. I have enjoyed the Holy City Hog, the local fish of the day, and all their seasonal sides. I am also a fan of the bar and bar food. I admit I have become a fan, a regular, and a friend. Great job to everyone there. More...
One of the best burgers I have had.
Had the Strip steak and it was certainly one of the top 5 best steaks I've ever had. Make sure you grab a couple family style sides (mash potatoes, edamame, mac&cheese).
We were in Charleston for the long weekend, and loved it so much we ate there both nights. From the minute we walked in to the after dinner drinks on the fabulous rooftop, we were impressed. The staff was exceptional and were the icing on the cake. Thank you Dave and JJ for taking special care of us on our farewell. We will see you again for sure. More...
Server Andrew was on the spot! Ready with good recommendations. Food was great. Owner Ken personally checked on us. Bar staff (Joe) on roof was great as well. Will come again!
I had a wonderful experience there.. The food was amazing, my compliments to the chef. The atmosphere was very nice and the views of old Charleston is wonderful. I would definitely go back. Joe was also a great server. More...
Expensive but delicious. We went for my husband's birthday and they prepared a small surprise dessert for him. Staff was super friendly!
Some of the best appetizers you will ever try. Def recommend the Hush Puppies they were a pleasant surprise.The atmosphere is great and not overly pricey.If you get the chance on a nice night go upstairs to the outdoor patio and you will find two of the best bartenders in Charleston mixing up cocktails that far exceed your average rum and coke.

We had the pleasure of having a great server and a great experience given the wet weather outside. Alan was our server and he was great! He started with asking us if we'd ever been to Burwells, educated us on what made the restaurant special and the steaks they had to offer. The deviled eggs will make you want to order a bucket of them and take some to go on top of that. I ordered the NY Strip at the direction of Alan because I couldn't resist after the detailed description he gave us. At the end of our meal, we trusted Alan to pick our dessert for us and IT WAS AMAZING!! Pumpkin Tiramisu (seasonal item) and the in-house made S'mores! What a perfect evening! The mixture of the piano playing in the background, Alan's superb service and attention to detail made it a great night out. Our water glasses were topped off at least 15 times throughout the evening and the mixologist JoJo at the bar did an excellent job on his personal twist on my Amaretto Ciroc cherry soda mixture! Our last encounter was with the owner who's from my hometown and after a brief conversation, I told him we'd be back and he said he'd be happy to have us; genuine service!! More...
Burwell's is one of my absolute favorite restaurants/bars in town. The food is fantastic. There are lots of places with great food in town, so Iet me explain why I personally choose Burwell's over other places. I go to there for the experience. It has a classy atmosphere, exceptionally nice waitstaff, and a true culture of family. From the bar staff to the regulars to the folks visiting from out of town, when you are there, everyone feels like friends. The layout lends itself to mingling and engaging new people, so if you are an outgoing type, you'll be in heaven.If you're looking for a more intimate kind of night, they've got you covered there too. There are all kinds of nooks and private areas that are ideal for that night when it's all about you and your date/guest/whatever. The place is not pretentious by any means; rather, it inspires you to want to dress up and look your best. Not because you feel obligated, but because you know it's going to be a great night. I hope that makes sense. It's a very unique chemistry they have pulled off, and one that has kept me and my friends going there almost since it opened. You know you like a place when you go for dinner and end up staying there till close! More...
Excellent steaks cooked to perfection! The sweet potato mash is heavenly. Great customer service!
What a great place. With all the restaurant's in Charleston, this is defiantly one of the best!!!!
Very sweet staff, excellent food, and prompt service.
We had dinner at Burwell's on June 1, 2013. Our server was Eric and he was excellent. He made our experience at Burwell's very special He even gave us a hug when we left. The wine list was superb. The crab cake appetizer was the best I've ever had. Steak was mouth watering. My husband and niece had seafood....salmon and tuna which were also to DIE FOR! We then went up to the rooftop lounge for an after dinner drink. The first drink I ordered was under par but the bartender took it away and made me another, very delightful, drink. I would definitely go back to this restaurant! Thanks Eric! More...
