Craftsmen Kitchen and Tap House Ratings and Reviews
This wonderfully located restaurant/bar has a cool vibe in an historic area. The extensive beer list included several specialty flights to choose from and our table ordered two flights and enjoyed the different tastes. The fish and chips were good, but not great (great local fish is available at many other nearby restaurants). Come for the beer and atmosphere, but don't expect an exceptional dinner. It is reasonably priced.
Server was great! Lobster corndogs tasted just like something fried and good, but couldn't taste the lobster honestly although it has a huge peice in it. The squid lettuce wraps were good. I would like a nice fresh veggie slaw with it too or something. The pizza, esp the sauce was really really good. I'll be back for pizza and beer
We enjoyed the food and were very pleased with the craft beer list. We were disappointed, however, that the menu had changed and didn't include any local seafood. In fact, the only fish dish on the menu was (frozen) Haddock as fish & chips. In a city like Charleston I'd think that would be expected of most diners.
Had dinner here & it was great! Have the crunchy dame sandwich - it 's delicious & not something you see on everybody's menu. The house made cherry jam makes it even more special. Server Agnes was friendly & efficient - took great care of us. Would absolutely go again next time we visiting this city. Cheers!
Came to Craftsmen at the last minute on Christmas when we hit a snafu with a previous reservation. Everything was top notch. We were seated immediately, the beer was tremendous, the food was outstanding, and the service couldn't have been better. Thanks for saving Christmas!
We found Craftsmen on the recommendation of Daniel, our waiter at Minero. Leave it to great servers to make great recommendations. Craftsmen bills itself as a tap kitchen... well named. Hundreds... yes hundreds of craft brews on tap, AND great food, AND great service. Our server Agnes made us feel like regulars. We started with Bites and Flights and finished with the Korean Beef, all incredibly reasonably priced. You are not going to find this place strollling Market or King. Cumberland is a rather dark street in the winter, not well lit, perhaps not the most inviting part of the Charleston... but once you enter the doors, you'll swear you'll be back.
Wow. Talk about a beer selection! Our waitress was so helpful and nice. The fish and chips were very good. My husband ordered the burger-he couldn't get past the pinkness from the pork, but I thought it was good. If you love beer this is the place for you.
We love Burger Night! Every Tuesday, you get a huge burger half off. Only $6! The farmhouse burger has Amazing flavor! It's so good that Burger night has become a weekly Tuesday tradition where we meet up with family and friends, catch up on what's happening, enjoy great beer and burgers!
Ordered the burger - server asked if "medium" was ok and I said yes. Burger was not only not medium, it was not medium rare - it was rare. After a few bites of trying, I asked to have it cooked some more. It came back still not medium. Will not eat here again - just too many great restaurants to choose from to settle for average.
Great Find! Would never of found this doing the normal walk & shop in Charleston but found on Trip Advisor, Reserved in Open Table ;).
Cool, laid back vibe with great selection of beers & nice selection of signature cocktails! Great food that was unique in combination & fabulous taste... Good portion sizes to!
We had the Jerk Pork tacos w/ pineapple salsa ( & not to sweet or fruity ) and the sweet potato local falafel pita! Summer Breeze is great for a light refresher with a kick! Go check it out!!!
It's a great casual lunch place, I didn't feel like I needed to be dressed to the nines to be there which is great. Some of the other places downtown with a similar price point and menu have a different vibe and I like that this place is more rustic and chill.
Absolute must visit bar/restaurant if you like beer. You will find hundreds of beers to select from. The food is absolutely wonderful. Had the burger and pizza and was absolutely amazed at the quality of the food. Best bar food I've had. The service was great. Our server was on point and was very friendly and knowledgeable.
If you are in downtown Charleston and are looking for a beer, definitely stop by Craftsman. I will guarantee you will find the beer you are looking for and will love their food!
