Burwell's Stone Fire Grill Ratings and Reviews
We were the only diners at 7pm and the restaurant didn't fill up until 7.30.
The steaks were excellent and the service was great. The restaurant is a little out of the way at the end of Market Street but I would definitely recommend this place and will eat here again
Went for a dinner date, and we were seated near the window on the bottom floor. I requested that we be moved to another area because it was so hot there. They happily moved us to the second floor, and it was much cooler. Great service! As for the food there was no complaints as far as taste, only negative toward food was the serving size for the sides. It was a small cup for sides. I ordered the bone in ribeye, and my date ordered the wagyu steak. Please note that wagyu is Japanese, or Japanese style steak and there is a rating system A-1 to A-5. I asked the rating of theirs and was not given a rating just that it was not A-5. Still good regardless. Overall I would go again, and recommend this place to my friends and family.
Spontaneous weekend in Charleston with the wife. Drove in from Atlanta to spend the weekend. She likes steak... I like seafood...so we picked Burwells mainly on a friend's recommendation who used to live in Charleston. We dined upstairs in an ackward corner and Caroline, our server, was very busy with larger groups. We were drinking Pellegrino sparkling water and we asked to have the bottle left on the table since she was so busy. She told me that her manager would get mad. She eventually left it for us which was nice of her...but she seemed genuinely irritated with our request. I wanted to order Grouper...but hate anything with squash or zuchinni... when asked if I could have the plain grouper without the squash garnishment, she seemed annoyed and didn't respond "yes" or "no"... just stared at me in disbelief. In order to end the standoff... I told her to bring me a small steak. Also ordered the Parmesan fries... they were overcooked and awful... tasted just like the hard pieces of overcooked French fries at a McDonalds. Really nice place... and the steak itself was absolutely awesome...but the overall dining experience was a major letdown. Don't plan on returning or recommending to any friends. Hopefully they will use this feedback in a constructive manner.
The only thing I was not happy about was that I asked for a well done steak and it came out slightly burned, like black around the edges. I know I am picky and it is hard to do a well done steak right. The crab on my husband's steak was slightly bland, it just needed something else. Everything else was wonderful though! Service was great!
My wife and I just celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary and decided to dine here. The atmosphere was great. It was quiet enough to have great conversations. The meal was delicious. Our server for the evening was humorous and wasn't pushy on getting you in, fed and out like a lot of other local places. It was a relaxing and an enjoyable evening. Great for special occasions!
We love a good steak restaurant and had looked forward to trying this place. Unfortunately, we won't be returning. The appetizers were disappointing. The asparagus soup with pickled shrimp was a large portion but lacked flavor and I had to devein the shrimp. In contrast, the beet salad was small and overpriced. The amount of goat cheese was generous and the dressing on the bottom of the plate was tasty but the beets, which should have been featured, were scarce, unimpressive and overpowered by the cheese. As with a lot of the restaurants in Charleston, the sides are extra so we are accustomed to that. However, a piece of steak on a bare plate without so much as a swirl or sprig of green? I could have looked past that if the steak had been better. Honestly, I've had better at chain restaurants and definitely better from my own grill. I will say the fries and mashed potatoes were delicious and the service and attention was excellent but it was an expensive meal for lackluster quality.
Great service, amazing food and did not disappoint all around! Hit the rooftop bar for before dinner drinks and apps. Get the Stone Fire, it's really cool for a different dining experience. The S'mores dessert was perfection and just enough to top off dinner.
I have been to Burwell's Stone Fire Grill many times and the changing menu is fantastic. They use local ingredients and the steak is absolutely fantastic. It will rival any steak house in Charleston and it is only a short walk from the water. The rooftop bar is a great place to meet before dinner for drinks and the view's are fantastic. Service both at the bar and in the dining room are unequaled. Alan is, without a doubt, the reason we keep going back!
Our group of 4 all enjoyed our steaks. The filet was delicious and cooked perfectly. The kitchen is semi-open and I always enjoy watching the chefs prepare the good. Our server was very friendly and not in a hurry to get away from our table. Parking is a plus too!
I cannot say enough good things about this place. I got engaged here last Thursday and it was truly an amazing experience. The food, as always, was outstanding, but what truly stood out was the level of care and help I received making everything just right.
Enjoyed our anniversary dinner there. Service is very good and the kitchen manager we witnessed came by to check how our meal was. Nice touch. My wife tried their Wagyu Prime beef, which looked delicious but lacked tenderness and good beef flavor, a big disappointment being it was to be the better meat, per our server. The New York Strip was large, and tender and seasoned well, a joy to eat. Veggies here are a la cart but large enough for two or more diners. They have a special drink menu for happy hour. We tried the Moscow Mule and Mango Mule which were well made with well blended ingredients.
The meal was great, and the restaurant was not that busy that night so service could be nothing but prompt and good. Meals were a little pricey but portion size was very good. Overall was worth coming back to. Last ate there 3 years ago. Charleston has SOOO many places to eat, and this was a good choice again.
Better in previous years.
- list of beers on tap had brewer only, not style of beer
- she-crab soup recipe is a fail, ? Squash based?
- wife's medium rare filet closer to rare
- if you're going to provide a view of kitchen, make an effort to remove cardboard boxes, etc. Hardly looks upscale.
- STILL no espresso!
Downhill trend is concerning- will y'all survive in this tough market?
I would not waste my money. .our waitress was nice. We were required to put in our drink appetizer and entre order all at one time. Our bottle of wine was left on table..no ice bucket to keep it chilled. From time we were sat to appetizers 45 minutes. .very pricey for what you recieve
Our reservation was for 6:30. There were very few guests there when we arrived. Our waiter promptly came to serve us drinks and took our order. I thought I ordered prime rib, telling the waiter I only will order it if they have horseradish. We waited for our dinners for over an hour, which wasn't acceptable. Everyone at the table was pretty upset. My prime rib end up being a rib steak, which I really didn't want. I though I was pretty clear on what I wanted, but guess it was my mistake that I read the menu wrong (saw another item was "prime cut", and thought this was prime rib)
Overall I like this restaurant, but I'll go elsewhere where we don't have to wait so long to get served. I chalk the prime rib order as my fault, but did think I was pretty clear to the waiter on what I wanted.
We so wanted to try the 700 degree hot stone tableside cooking and it was everything we hoped for. Fun, cook to our own taste, kept french fries hot too. Outstanding She Crab Soup, asparagus veg medley and brussels sprouts. Very nice wine list. Attentive wait staff. Will do again for sure!
