Wonderful dinner and experience. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the food and menu. She was engaging but not intrusive. She was very attentive and made sure our night was special as we celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary. We have celebrated there for the last 3 years and look forward to many more. The food was delicious and the desserts were incredible.

We have eaten at all of the better steak houses in Charleston, and Burwell's ranks favorably with all of them as to service, food, and ambience. I would recommend it to anyone who would like a great steak, although I was tempted by the Low Country surf and turf! Love the home made ginger beer, also!

Disappointing. Nothing was bad, but nothing was really good. I won't go back, nor will I recommend it to others; especially not when there are several other places within a few blocks that are considerably better.

The meal was great and the service was awesome. We ordered an appetizer and it was great! We ordered the Hot Stone Waygu Steak at the recommendation of the server and it was fabulous! We had a great meal, steaks were awesome and so were the sides. The service was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent, well-prepared locally-grown cuts of beef in a modern but warm and intimate setting. A little pricey but well worth it. Our server, Chandler, was exceptionally attentive and knowledgable in helping us decide on our choices of beef from the nice variety of options. Her recommendations proved to be spot on, and her on-going attention, hospitality and Southern charm really complemented the rest of our meal and made for a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable evening.

In addition to their delicious steaks, we LOVE their fries and the southern peanut butter s'mores. Their bartender (mixologist) always makes the best drinks. Our waiter, Aneel, was wonderful! One of the owners, John, is always there making sure everything is right. This restaurant always lives up to our expectations.

This was my first visit at Burwells. The starter salad was way over-priced and lacked flavor (so skip it and get a side instead). The filet steak was incredible and so was the mac and cheese. The farro side was spicy for me, so it wasn't the best (in my book). I greatly enjoyed the dinner rolls- those were special! The burger my husband got was good, too. I would go back, but not in a hurry to do so.

The food was great, probably one of the best steaks I have ever tasted. Our server was new. It was his first night on the job, but he did a good job. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere, but it was a Monday night. We will be sure to try it again with friends on a weekend.

Our server Andrew was great and the food was delicious! The only disappointment was my steak was under cooked. I order it medium and it came out rare. I sent it back and it came back medium rare. Still undercooked. The steak was so good I ate it anyway but a little disappointing that when paying $40 for a steak they can't get the temperature right the first time (or the second). I would give them a second chance because everything else was amazing!!

My husband and I were traveling through Charleston on our way back home to Florida. Charleston is one of our favorite places to spent a few extra days and I like to look up new places to try on Tripadvisor. Since we had been traveling for 5 weeks and had missed celebrating our anniversary, I thought Burwells sounded like the place we would enjoy.
The food was superb, and we will definitely put this one on our list to come back to.

Excellent steaks! Their Wagyu steak is just fantastic. Perfectly prepared on their woodfire grill. The sides were tasty, service excellent, just an overall great dining experience.
The Hot Stone appetizer was a fun way to start dinner. Give it a try!

We’ve had dinner at Burwell’s a number of times and the food is always excellent; this visit was no exception. However, on this occasion there was a level of disorganization that was disappointing to the overall experience. The problems began at check-in when the three employees standing at the computer couldn’t find our Open Table reservation (even with us showing them the confirmation). They determined they could still seat us and took us to a table for 6 in the middle of the room. We asked if they had something for 4 and we were directed to a dark corner table upstairs. After an extraordinarily long wait, someone finally brought us water and took our drink order only to disappear for a lengthy period of time before returning with our wine. Feeling abandoned upstairs (we were the only diners in the room) we asked if we could move to the main dining room and were accommodated. Again, the food was excellent but the pace was excruciating slow. While appetizers came relatively quickly (at our 3rd table), the main course took forever. From arrival to departure we were there 2 hours and 40 minutes. While not in a hurry, we had not planned on the meal encompassing our entire evening. There seemed to be plenty of staff in the dining area and in the kitchen so I have no explanation for the level of confusion and slow service. After finishing our meal we promptly paid our check and proceeded out the door only to be stopped and told they had forgotten to put the first bottle of wine ordered during our original seating on the bill and owed $51 additional. I handed them cash and we left. I’m thinking after that disaster, that bottle might have been on the house...

Food was average but expensive
Service was o.k.
Made a reservation for my wife and I, they seat us at a booth that was for made for 6 people which was right by the kitchen door, hostess said ' this is all we have available, otherwise you'll have to wait'. We took the booth and dealt with all of the traffic back and forth from the kitchen to the dining room
Wide screen TV in bar that you could see from dining area, which seemed inappropriate for
Definitely, would not recommend

I think the steaks are a little over priced. My steak wasn't as tender as expected. I didn't find the flavor of the steak to be anything to write home about. I've had better steaks at Oak Steakhouse and even Ruth's Chris. The waiter's knowledge and ability to sell me on Wagyu beef had my expectations high and sadly there we not met.
The service was good, the lava rock appetizer was fun and interactive for a table of people. It was a little smokey with the open kitchen, but the decor was very appealing.

I took my son here as his "last meal" before entering the Citadel. I had wanted to treat him to a great steak, and did some research online before making a reservation. We are from NJ, so I relied on the reviews before making my choice. I was very disappointed. The service was incredible, so no issue there. But the minute you walk in, you smell smoke and it was very hot. It was also a friday night, 7:15, and it wasn't very crowded, which waa a red flag. We ordered the pork appetizer, which was very good, but overpriced. The REAL disappointment came with the steaks. While they were cooked perfectly, we both ordered them medium rare, they were EXTREMELY over salted, and not the "melt in your mouth" texture I was expecting. I ordered the Kobe fillet, and my son ordered a strip. I can not tell you how disappointing it was, not only given the occasion, but the prices. My fillet was a bit tough, and my son's was gristley, and chewy. For a steakhouse, that was unacceptable. The sides are not very imaginative, and costly as well. My son ordered the "vegetable of the day" which was a grilled ear of corn..... $6....!!!!
We didnt stay for dessert.
My opinion is this.....this restaurant is touristy, trying to be a higher end eatety, it is clearly NOT frequented by the locals, and it misses the mark. Find a better steakhouse. I spent $165, which did not include dessert and only 1 glass of $8 wine. Not worth it.

The moment we walked in we were warmly greeted, immediately seated and met by our server Andrew. Andrew provided excellent service and made us feel welcome and valued. The drinks were amazing, I had the wood fired filet medium well and it was perfectly cooked, moist and tender and nicely seasoned. My husband had the premium Wagyu steak and we both agreed these were the best steaks we've eaten in a long time and we eat out quite often. We had the chefs choice desert which was a lemon bar of some type but it was absolutely delicious. Only disappointment was the lack of an espresso machine but they do have coffee. Overall, from the great service and delicious food I'd say we will definitely be back. One of the owners even comes around to ask how everything is, that's a nice touch.
