Great dinners spot. We ate all appetizers and had beers. All we're delicious.
Cheese pull on the pizza was amazing!!
Had a great meal with my daughter while visiting Charlestown for a college visit/tour. Great beer selection and a warm environment. Highly recommend it for a casual meal and great beer.
We had reservations and were given a table right at the door. Very distracting and rather cold with the door being constantly opened. The server was rather disinterested and not very attentive. The food was mediocre, the fried chicken sandwich in particular. It appeared to be a massive piece of chicken on a roll but when cut into, it was nothing but crust.
Went for a late night last stop. Beer flight was excellent and personal pizza was perfect.
After walking through the unconspicuous front door, we were led to our table with the bar on one side of the room and a glassed-in atrium on the other. Fun space!! Service was fantastic. Had an awesome flight of local brews and the one of the BEST SANDWICHES I EVER HAD IN MY LIFE!!! It was the Crunchy Dame - BBQ pork belly, gruyere, cherry jam, mustard aioli, on an amazing brioche-type of bread with a sunny-side-up egg in top. The combo of sweet, salty, savory, tart and the crunchy-meets-soft texture was STELLAR! I couldn’t talk; it was one of those “please leave me alone while I bliss out on what is in front if me” moments. I wish we lived nearby!!!
We really enjoyed having dinner at this restaurant that is located in a great area of Charleston. Arriving before our reservation was good, as we were able to have some of the great beers from the extensive menu. The food was quite good and our group had a nice time.
I can't really comment on anything but the level of service we received as we were never given the opportunity to sit down and eat, but I had to fill in the ratings in order to post this review.
I tried to be fair and offer some average ratings on everything but the service. We showed up at 6:15 for a 6:30 reservation. I totally understand that they couldn't seat us right then, but by 6:45 our patience had worn out. We were going to the theatre so we couldn't afford to wait any longer. There were a few 4-tops available, but they wouldn't seat us there because they were "reserved for someone else." The manager actually told us that reservations are just "an approximate time!" Not in my book. I did the right thing by making a reservation so the restaurant could plan and allocate their resources accordingly, but in the end, they didn't honor my reservation. We are locals and live down the street. We thought we would go someplace new, but I guarantee we won't be back. Instead, we went to one of our favorite places close by and they managed to accommodate us ... even without a reservation on a busy Saturday night. I never expect or ask for special treatment, but it's such a pleasant surprise when an establishment goes the extra mile to be of service. They recognized us and were more than happy to help us out in a pinch.
It was a terrible experience! They were out of food and waited for ages for food.
Best beer list in town. Cool menu items , especially apps. Server was great but food took way, way too long.
It was Easter, I think they should have thought more about the holiday in the menus
Our server was very good, the beer menu is amazing, the ambiance was nice, and the food was meh. Burgers, pizza, some other things. I mean the food was good, but not very creative. if you love beer, want a fun place, and aren't picky about healthy food you'd like this place.
Food was amazing! We all cleaned our plates! Drinks were a little pricey but their beer selection was great! Only real complaint was because we were seated by the door we kept getting a cold breeze and outdoor smells every time the door opened. Would go back again without a doubt!
The asian tacos were great. the best we tried. Wings were OK, potato appetizers a bit bland. The corn dogs were sort of dry. Wait staff great!
The food was excellent especially for the price! I’ve had food nowhere near this quality at twice the price.
Fantastic menu, great execution and service
My second visit was as good as the first one. I look forward to visiting again.
Good beer selection, awful food. No seasoning.
This is a really great, change-of-pace restaurant! Pages of local beers and ciders, and a truly imaginative menu. Prices are reasonable and very good service. Music in the restaurant is certainly energetic, but the outdoor courtyard is pleasant for conversation.
Great selection of beers on tap, food is up scale bar food but good quality.
The sandwiches we had were very good, however they were out of several menu items and it was only 1:00 on Sunday. Disappointing.
Great place, just waited a very long time for our food
They were very accommodating with indoor and outdoor seating. We asked to be moved inside when we realized how windy it was in the courtyard. This was my first visit to this restaurant. We will attend again and I have already recommended it to friends.
Very extensive craft beer listing. Our server was fairly new but was very helpful in describing the different beer flights. Food was great.
Great service. Great beer. Great pizza! Thank you to our server for a pleasant dinner and great beer tasting.
Casual beer lovers haven, so many choices! Food also outstanding, will definitely be back!
Great service and enjoyable menu! Tasty brews! Will def be back!
First timers. Our reserved table ended up being the high top closest to the door...on the coldest night in Charleston. Our server lacked any enthusiasm. The burger was just okay. To top it off, Just before we were about to pay, a bus boy returned the missing two chairs to our table. Could they not have waited until we left? It just felt as though we were unwelcome. Just a bad night, bad showing. Maybe next time.
We went for New Years Eve — very early reservation. We were told we’d have to wait for the table they’d assigned to us, even though we ended up being seated 15 minutes later at a table that had been empty all along. The service was average — very little enthusiasm for us, the food, etc. it seemed they were in churn mode, which isn’t so unusual on a night like that, but the place wasn’t busy at that point. The food was good, and of course, the beer list was insane. But the experience was less than great overall.
Great service. Outstanding beer selection but not enough local and regional selections.
Service was quick to take order but food came very slow (45mins), burgers were suspiciously room temperature when they got to us.. pretty sure the waitress forgot about us. they added 20% gratuity up front so she must have felt she did not need to try ..won't go back
We loved it! It was very good...food was authentic and very good and the ambience was very authentic!
Great set-up, lively crowd. They were kind enough to be open on Christmas so that was great for a traveling couple. The pickle platter was full of flavor, the bruschetta was great but the prime rib seemed to be seared and a little bland, and we had to ask a few times for au jus. The drink selection was amazing and The bartender was swamped but as soon as it slowed down he was on top of his game!! Overall we would go back!
Nice time, delicious food. The service was prompt and friendly. We felt at home and enjoyed our evening very much.
Our server Agnes was amazing and took the experience to the next level. She was super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable!
Selection of beers is huge but this isn't just a beer bar. The food is creative and delicious. Casual and fun
One of the Best burgers I've ever eaten. Celebrating a friend getting married. Top notch, will definitely recommend!
I love Craftsman for many things, but my top two are: Kitchen open late, and great service from Agnes. I don't drink beer, but my beer-drinking friends are extremely impressed by the extensive beer list. I usually order the Low Fashioned; love the Bourbon-soaked cherries. And the food is outstanding. This time I had one of the burgers; Delicious!
Great food with a casual ambiance. I went on a weeknight so it wasn't very busy.
