Burwell's Stone Fire Grill Ratings and Reviews
Overall good experience but there were a few areas of concern. Arrived before reservation and advised they could not seat us until reservation time which was fine for us, once reservation time came and passed the hostesses still did not come and get us so I had to go to her and she advised me that she was giving her servers some time to get caught up but she went ahead and sat us a few minutes after the reservation most likely bc I went and asked what was the status of our seats. Otherwise I am not sure how long we would have waited.
Once seated everything went pretty smoothly. Fresh bread was nice and hot, appetizer she crab soup was good. I did request my salmon to be prepared medium well without any pinkness but it was still cooked with it being pink. Will probably check out other places before returning back.
This was not the first time we ate at Burwells, we have always enjoyed it! Food was great and the steaks were cooked to perfection. I do miss the skillet cornbread, but the rolls were great. The best part of the evening was our server, Chandler. She was perky, funny and gave great service! Would go back and if we can get Chandler, we would be happy.
Our local friends suggested eating here as their favorite place in Charleston. We had the delicious deviled eggs, with truffle oil, appetizer with beer and champagne. It was memorable! We saw the bar crowd eating lamb or steak cooked on a 700 degree salted rock served individually to cook your meat at your chosen temperature. So we returned the next night to enjoy that. It was so tender and delicious. We followed with delicious meals. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The wagu filet was like no other steak I've ever had. It was the finest cut, grilled to perfection with the most wonderful flavor. It was pricy, but worth it! My husband's flatiron steak was perfect as well. We don't do desserts often but when a chocolate-peanut butter s'mores dessert was described, we jumped on it. Again, we were thrilled with our choice. We are planning another trip to Charleston just to eat at Burwells again. We hope the deviled eggs and S'mores dessert stay on the menu options for awhile!
Disappointed. Arrived ontime for our reservation but was told it would be a 20 minute wait even though half of the tables were empty. Waiter was over the top hard sell. We ordered a bottle of wine he recommended only to have him come back and tell us they were out of it. Ordered another bottle and the cork screw broke opening it. Appys were good - deviled eggs were tasty, Caesar salad also good. Hangar steak was extremely salty and under cooked - ordered medium rare and came out rare almost raw. Sides did not arrive with the steaks - had to wait several minutes for them to hit the table. We were told the kitchen messed up. Side dish of farro and Brussels sprouts was way under cooked. Sprouts were raw. Waiter tried to tell us hangar steak was naturally salty and they purposely cook the Brussels sprouts that way to give the dish crunch. Mac and cheese was mediocre. Not worth the $300 price tag. On a side note we were in a booth that the seat was frayed and had holes in it. For that kind of price tag I don't enjoy sitting on tattered seats.
AMAZING meal. Ann, our server was extremely attentive, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful & on top of things. Absolutely freakin delicious! Highly recommend! Steaks were off the charts. Butternut squash soup was to die for & the mac & cheese brought it all together.
Four of us went to this restaurant and all got steak. Three of us got the filet and one the flat iron. We also ordered a peppercorn sauce, mushrooms and a green vegetable. Three of the steaks were cooked to perfection and unfortunately my filet was overdone. Before I realized this I had put mushrooms and veggies on the plate. After cutting into the steak the waitress came to see how we were doing. Being told the steak was overdone she agreed and took it back to the kitchen. When returned the second steak was perfect and the waitress brought another side of mushrooms. My only complaint would be that the veggies on my plate were not replaced and I do like my vegetables. That being said, all steaks were very tasty, the waitress was very good and the overall experience was good.
Had a great meal at Burwell's. The steaks were superb. I had the Wagyu filet and it was prepared and tasted great. No complaints. The remainder of the food was very good, but on par with other steak houses in Charleston. Nothing over the top. Biggest difference is the atmosphere. This is a great location if you are having dinner with a group or looking for a loud bar scene atmosphere. If you are a couple looking for a quiet romantic date, this is not the place. The restaurants advertises as a modern steakhouse though, so anticipated different. Overall great experience, but my wife and I usually prefer a quieter evening out. Would return with a group for a fun night on the town.
The menu at this modern steakhouse was much more diverse than a typical steakhouse, it included a wide range of beef including wagyu, dry-aged, prime, and traditional styles. I've never seen this before, and it was hard to decide but I enjoyed my wagyu skirt steak very much!
We were disappointed in the whole experience. The seats were all wore out. That should of given us the first clue. Took a while for server to get to us. The steak was very disappointing for the price. We notice a gentleman walking around in jeans and casual shirt, has no idea who he was. Came to our table asked if everything was ok. Never introduced himself, but I guess he worked there. We won't go back.
Really enjoyed the bar prior to dinner. The wait staff in general is very nice but way too much talking and explaining the entire menu versus allowing the diner to ask questions or they ask questions of the diner and make recommendations. The drinks upfront and the desert at the end were awesome. The appetizer and a meal were good to very good but not incredible. Prices were a little on the high side compared to Oak and Halls chophouse. Overall we enjoyed the experience. I did mention in the original reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and no one at the restaurant made mention of the birthday.
This was a last minute reservation. We were so pleasantly surprised. This a very nice, efficiently run, family business. We sat close to the open kitchen, and we were able to watch the operations. Our waitress was personable, and walked us through the menu. One of the owners came to talk to us. The food was so nicely prepared. We had a cheese sampler, and the choices were well chosen. We both had the grilled salmon Caesar salad, and my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Great find!!
My husband and I were celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary with a trip to Charleston. Burwell's was our second's night's dining destination. My husband hasn't stopped talking about how much he enjoyed his Wagyu hanger steak - he said it's the best steak he's ever eaten. I ordered their she-crab soup and was wowed - it was absolutely fabulous. Then I ordered their "stone" appetizer of Wagyu filet, cooked the meat on the stone at the table, and enjoyed eating every bite - it was delicious. If we go back to Charleston, Burwell's warrants a return visit.
My wife and I were looking for a good steak. But wells appeared to be well rated. We were pleasantly surprised it was even better than rated. My wife chose the filet and I went with the strip, they were perfectly prepared and melted in our mouths. If you appreciate a good steak, you will love Burwell's.
This restaurant was recommended by the Concierge at the hotel we were staying at. What a great recommendation! It was a limited menu because of Valentine's Day, but still many great seafood and steak options. The food was superb, and the service was even better! Even with all the wonderful dinner options in Charleston, be sure to add this restaurant to your list!
Made reservations for Valentine's Day dinner. Was seated at a table for 2 that was just beside the underside of the stairs leading to the second floor. It was awkward and unflattering to be seated here-- there were 3 tables of 2 in this side area off the bar and not in the main dining room. Every time someone went up or diwn the stairs, we heard it! Felt like we couldn't ask to be moved, as the hostess told me upon checking in that they were going to be busy that evening. Our waiter was excellent. The food was good. I suggest this area be returned to the bar with high tables/ bar stools.
