Burwell's Stone Fire Grill Ratings and Reviews
We were absolutely delighted with Burwell's!
Everything from our "deviled egg" appetizers to our last bite of dessert was delicious! Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and everything in between!:) If you haven't tried it yet, you all are missing out on this hidden gem in Charleston! Can't wait to go back again!:)
I was a bit disappointed in my meal. I ordered the buratta salad appetizer, whichever was nothing special (bland). For my entree I ordered the scallops, which were oversalted and had an overwhelming orange flavor which was not enjoyable. I should've had a steak. When we asekd for more dinner rolls (which were delicious the first time around), they were glazed with some kind of weird orange flavor (again with the oranges), which tasted awful. I did not complain because there really was nothing inherently wrong with my meal, I just didn't care for it. However, our server was great. He was very knowledgeable about all the steaks offered on the menu. When he found out it was my friend's birthday, he brought out a beautiful birthday dessert for us to share. It was very nice. I just wish I had ordered steak!
Excellent food, really great service and a strong wine list. They offered American Wagyu at surprisingly reasonable prices (for wagyu), their deviled egg appetizer was repeat worthy, and the "hot rock" appetizers were fun and very good. Strong, if not extensive wine list, and our server went "off the list" to find us an amazing, velvety Barolo that drew raves. Would I go again? Absolutely.
I was a guest with a colleague during Charleston Restaurant Week and certainly got my $40 worth. A fantastic Ceasar salad as an opener, along with hot rolls, delish swordfish with a shrimp risotto as a main, and an awesome slice of coconut cheesecake with caramel sauce for dessert. The food was very, very flavorful. Due to my per dieum I didn't get a chance to try the Wagu beef, but I'll be back in November and will be sure to put it on my list.
This was our 4th time here and we love it. Wife is allergic to all diary and they always work hard to make sure that what ever she orders never touches any dairy. They even make her dairy free rolls. Steaks are out of this world tender. You have to try the Flat rock appetizers. Some of the best and the most tender beef you will ever have. Celebrated a friends Birthday and they brought out a very nice desert with HB written in very nicely. Nice touch.
It was my husband's birthday and we brought our 2 kids (ages 8 and 10). We started off with Rock candy app with the 700 degrees stone to cook it on along with parm fries. Our kids thought this was so much fun to do and they loves the steak. For our main course, my husband had the NY strip and he said it was one of the best steaks he has had in Charleston. I had the salmon which was very good and light. My daughter had the caesar salad with bacon and my son had the mash potatoes. He is my picky eater, but he loved the mashed potatoes. For dessert, we order 1 of every thing except the black forest cake. We all had taste of the creme brulee, smores, peach cobbler, cocoa puff treat with ice cream...each was amazing. Hats off to our server!! He was very charming and helpful!! We highly recommend it!
Burwell's is the best restaurant in Charleston. My family and I look forward to visiting Burwell's every time we visit the city. The steaks are phenomenal. The drinks are creative and delicious. The service is always excellent, and every staff member seems to be extremely knowledgeable about their menu. Burwell's is consistently outstanding across the board year after year!
We drove from Columbia to enjoy downtown Charleston and had made reservations. They were running behind although they had open tables. I don't think they were well staffed for the eclipse traffic. The deviled eggs were great. Salad yummy. Burger had potential but it was cold when we got it. I think the server didn't get it in time. Shame it wasn't served hot. Has potential. Will give it another try.
The good- she crab soup (has a hint of citrus), Caesar salad (flatbread croutons mmmm,salty and yum), pork wings ( two-peanuty rich bbq pork on bone chunks), chicken entree -(so tender).
The meh, THE STEAK! You had one job! No seasoning, undercooked medium rare when we ordered medium . One steak came room temp on the exterior to the touch and had to go back. Veggies are all a la carte but at least throw a garnish on the plate. This was meat on a white plate. The end. Our sides were good. Our server failed to comment on the bloody red half of steak left on the plate. The ship had sailed after I had to send it back the first time so I did not wish to send it back a second time. There are other steakhouses to try so we will not be back.
We were in town visiting friends and wanted to take them out. We used Yelp for reviews and found Burwell's. We were very glad we did. We were also very happy we could get a table at the last minute even though it was a Saturday night on Total Eclipse weekend!
Between the four of us, we tried the Filet, the NY Strip and the Wagyu hangar steak. The Filet was amazing and so was the strip. However, I ordered the hangar steak and although it was incredibly tender and cooked just right, it was a bit tasteless for me. I'm a RibEye guy mainly and the next time I go, that'll be the selection.
Also, I can't go without mentioning our waitress. She was incredibly knowledgeable. She talked about the different cuts of beef and the parts of the cow they came from with the accuracy and passion of a sommelier.
We come to Charleston every year and this was our first time at Burwells. We ordered the lamb to start, then filet, Mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and the green vegetable medley. My husband said this is one of the best meals he has ever eaten. The steak was melt in your mouth tender. We decided that Burwells is on our "must eat" list for future trips. If you love steak, this is your place.
As a local, we feel like Burwell's is a hidden gem! Lots of great steak options that other spots don't have and several wonderful seafood dishes as well. I also really appreciate the array of sides offered - we feel like we can go out for a great meal and still stick to our health goals! They've always been super accommodating to adjust any dietary needs - gluten, dairy free, even when I was on a "cleanse" a few years back! The "hot rock" steak appetizer is really unique and worth ordering - my 5 year old daughter adores this and requests Burwell's for any of her special occasion nights out so she can "cook her own steak"! :-) This last time we dined, we mentioned that she chose her favorite, Burwell's, for dinner to celebrate her first day of Kindergarten... the owner and staff couldn't have been more sweet to her - even giving her a special dessert with "Have a great school year!" written in chocolate on the plate!! :-) They had already won her heart many dines before, but this time will truly be a meal to remember! :-)
The price was a little high compared to the portions and quality of the food. I had a reservation for 7:30p but had to wait till after 8:00p to be seated. That was a little too long. We made the most of it and had a drink and enjoyed the ambiance while we waited. I didn't like feeling as if I was pestering the staff but I waited a half hour to ask the staff to make sure they were trying to find us a table. It would have been nice if they had updated us once every fifteen minutes or so I didn't have to keep wondering what was taking so long. Good experience overall but with so many great choices in Charleston I probably won't come back anytime soon. We each had a different cut of Wagyu which was seasoned well but nothing special considering the price. The wine selection was good and our server was great.
Thank God the food was excellent because most everything else was a disappointment. Our reservation indicated that we were a party of 5 celebrating our 2 sons college graduation.
1. This restaurant is loud to the point of being annoying.
2. We were seated at a booth right next to the entrance of the kitchen. I commented to the hostess, "I would hate to see where we would have been seated without a reservation". Her response was, "this is a great table, I promise". It wasn't...
3. Our waiter was well informed and helpful.
4. We ordered drinks, 3 dirty martinis. Our waiter offered "blue cheese stuffed olives?", yes all around. When the martinis arrived there was a pick with 2 olives in each of the 3 drinks, one olive was stuffed and one was not! Seriously, you're going to charge >$100+ per person to eat at your restaurant and are going to cheap out on 1/4 t. of blue cheese in one of your olives?! Here's a tip, don't offer if you can't deliver or only use one olive. Things like this makes a restaurant look ridiculous and so sad considering the caliber of the restaurant. My husband said something to the waiter and he brought three new picks, two stuffed olives on each.
5. Appetizers were expensive but good. Deviled eggs and lamb chops.
6. Steaks were perfection.
7. I expected someone to mention our special occasion that we were celebrating, 2 college graduations, since I made a note of it when I made the reservation. There was nothing mentioned, no congratulations, no free dessert, nothing. Another low class move in my book.
We were in a great mood when we arrived and although we enjoyed each others company, this restaurant could have made a better impact on our evening and the truth is it did not, it was just average.
Fantastic time we came in from out of town wanting to try a great restaurant and we did. We arrived early to sit at the bar with one of the friendliest bartenders I've spoken with who mad amazing mango mules(a must have). When we got sat for dinner our waiter was phenomenal, from start to finish he was professional but very likable and instructed us on what we might like to try based on our preferences. Wagu hanger steak was great as when as my girlfriends catch of the day which was red snapper. All in all a fantastic experience and we will be returning definitely, and hopefully with more people so they can experience as we have.
My boyfriend and I had an amazing first experience! We started with a drink upstairs at the bar before our reservation. The bartender was attentive and personable! We both described our meal as one of the best we have ever had. Our waitress Emily was awesome and you could tell she really enjoyed her job. The mac and cheese is a MUST!
