Dinner was wonderful. We had the NY Strip which was the best I ever had. My wife had the Wagyu Hanger steak and my son had the Wagyu Flat Iron. Both said it was the best steak ever. The desserts were also wonderful. Our lead waiter Alan was great. He guided us with the menu and was right on with his recommendations. Next time we are in town we will be back.

This is a wonderful restaurant! We brought my boyfriend's parents here, and they were extremely impressed by the steaks, especially the waygu and the hot stone appetizer. The drink selection is great, and they have wonderful cocktails. Our server was amazing, and definitely knew the menu well, making excellent suggestions. We showed up early for our reservation, but they were able to seat us right then and there. I have been here a few times before, and will continue to go here in the future.
Nice place for a bachelorette party dinner. It was delicious.
Our server was fantastic and the food was amazing!
If you are looking for a great steak this is the place for you. Truly incredible! From the service to the presentation of the food, to the taste of the food. It was a great place for date night with my husband!

This modern steak house stands up to both Oaks and Halls' that we have visited in the past! Thanks to our waiter, Allan, who made our visit extra special with his knowledge of the wine list, the cut of steak that would appeal to us and his overall service!
Underrated Restaurant in the Charleston Area
Burwell's is a little off the beaten path for the typical restaurant locations but once you go you'll continue to go back! Everything on the menu is delicious and the staff is very knowledgeable about their menu. The management is very concerned with your perception of the restaurant and ensures that you've enjoyed your experience. If you haven't been to Burwell's it's a must-see place for a wonderful steak dinner!

Fabulous experience! Really wonderful food, service and atmosphere. Only reason I can't give it 5 stars is that the noise level was a bit high - due to a very boisterous Bachelor party. No harm, though! This is our new go to spot for a great meal.

Brunch was very nice, the food was exceptional as as always as Burwells. Allen made our day very very special
Not a good night
Made reservations for after my daughter's graduation. Reservation for 8:00, after 8:30 before we were seated. Seated right next to a bachelor party. Couldn't hear ourselves talk. Daughters steak was overcooked, next one was very salty. Not a good night. Talked to the manager who apologized. And to top it all off the ran my card 3 times and tied up $440 more than the bill. Thanks.

Always great! Service and food!bartenders are the best!
I would highly recommend Burwell's. Everything on the menu is unique - especially the deviled eggs and s'mores dessert. Worth every penny!
Had a lovely CofC graduation dinner here. Many of the employees (hostesses and wait staff) were friends of my daughters so made it even more special. Food delicious. They had no problem with my husband and I sharing a steak as neither of us wanted an entire one. I find this to be an issue at many Charleston restaurants. Atmosphere lively and modern!
Very nice service and food. The four (4) of us were greeted with a nice waiter and he was very informative of the food, on where it came from and how it was prepared. Each item was presented very appropriately and followed up with our pleasure of each item. The table next to us ordered an appetizer, wherein they were presented with a flat rock heated to 900 degree with raw meats that the cooked on the stone to their desired doneness. The aroma was intoxicating . Just an overall great dinning pleasure.

I cannot say enough amazing things about our entire experience at Burwell's. From drinks and deviled eggs to s'mores, it was perfection. Our favorite meal of our trip. Ask for JJ. He rocks.
One of the best steaks we've ever had!
Absolutely would recommend! We've been to many high end steakhouses and this did not disappoint! Excellent apps and sides As well! Our waitress was fantastic and very attentive.

My wagyu steak was the best steak i've ever had. We didn't care for the minimalist presentation, but the food and ambiance were very, very good. One thing that was annoying was that rather than walking around the table to serve me, the server reached across my husband while he was engaged in conversation. We were not at a booth, so she should have walked around to serve from the left and bus from the right.

Seated right away with reservation on a saturday night. VERY strong smell when entering the restaurant, possibly from lamb cooking... We ordered ceasar salad, which was just ok, but the wagyu gold steak with parm herb fries were exceptional! Clementine cocktail and creme brulee were also delicious! Great service!!
Steaks are wonderful!!
We had the best Filet we've ever eaten tonight!! It was flavorful, juicy, and extremely tender!! We will definitely be back during our next visit.
Super dinner her with fantastic steak entrees. It is pricey and many items are a la carte. For the few times of the year you want to go first class this is the place. Exciting place with rooftop bar, nice energy and an excellent staff.

Nice decor with a blend of rustic and contemporary appointments. Good service. Busy but not loud, as several of us commented that we didn't have to shout over the roar experienced in most restaurants. The four of us had four different steaks and all were pleased. The wine list had plenty of depth. Prices similar to those in Ruth's Chris, Fleming's, and Morton's.
What a gem. Everything was outstanding. The server was great and did not rush us at all. Had a drinks before ordering. We wanted the deviled egg appetizer but felt it would be way too much food and the server brought one egg for us to try on the house. The owner stopped by and chatted. The atmosphere is beautiful. They have a upstairs deck which would be great during warmer evenings. The steaks were great -- I would probably say one of the best I ever had. The Caesar Salad was divine. The sides were great. I will be visiting Burwell's again and will recommend it to my friends!!!!
Excellent Menu and Service
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!

Best deviled eggs I've ever had. Best s'mores I've ever had. Really great steak. Stone experience rocks! Couple next to us broke up. You should go too!

We were in town for a wedding with an extra night for a special dinner for two. We lucked out and there was great live music playing by the bar. Out server said that happens once a month. The food was excellent!
First time there. Many steak choices and other dishes for the non-meat eaters. Service was very good. Bartender is a hoot. Would recommend to visitors that have tried all of the "tourist restaurants".
2nd time back
This isn't a terrible restaurant, so I don't want my review to be misconstrued, however it is smack in the middle of Charleston which is the restaurant epicenter of all cities, so they all have a lot to live up to. Server was very informative, very courteous, and even brought us a dessert on the house because it was our wedding anniversary. Wife and I both got their Wagyu Hangar steak. Asked for it to be cooked medium, it came out medium-rare to rare. Flavor was really just ok. I've had better in chain restaurants. We ordered 3 side dishes - brussel sprouts with rice - very good, Parmesan Frites (yes, fries!) - very good, Broccolini - no flavor. The wine was excellent. Overall, it was "ok", but due to the main attraction (the steak!) being so bland and the prices so rich, I have to give it a "Poor" for overall value. I hope they can improve, but I'm not sure we'll be going back.
Visiting Charleston for a weekend getaway from Atlanta and celebrating birthdays. This is a top notch steakhouse serving excellent beef cooked over an oak fire. The steaks were perfect and you could definitely taste the aging and oak. I was very impressed with the flavors. Caroline took very good care of us. We will definitely go back on our next visit.
A nice place just off the public market. Very large, two floors, with a good sized bar area. There were several large groups dining, and with the high ceilings and generous floor space, that was not intrusive. The wine list is not extensive, but had a good variety; we enjoyed a CA meritage along with the excellent Waygu beef. Service was friendly and attentive.
Lovely last night in Charleston
The menu selection was quite nice. Pretty sure there's something for everyone. More of an adult vibe. Not sure if you would want to bring children. Our waiter was very helpful and kind. Would go back.

Really great place. Food was excellent. Service was amazing! Will definitely return!
Off the beaten Charleston track
Wonderful find at end of N Market near the water. Super waiter J J . steered us to great dishes. Deviled eggs , cucumber gazpacho and great beef . Excellent coffee. Just a great dinner
Modern steak house
A sleek modern interior matches the menu in this modern steak house. If you want a great steak this is the place for you. The sides are ok but the real treat is the steak like most other high end steak houses that have sprung up all over the USA. The prices are typically what you should expect in a high end steak house....high. The desert menu was limited to two items. The "special"we had was excellent. The service was very good. I would recommend Burwells to anyone looking for a great steak and who is willing to spend a minimum of $150 per couple.
