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.

Great spot for a quick, casual, tasty meal for a good value, wonderful beer list, (with flights to try several) and cocktails, no nonsense bar food w/ nothing pretentious. I'd go for the Scotch egg alone, but everything was fantastic.

This is a fun place for drinks and they have a great beer selection. The staff is friendly and efficient. We went there for Thanksgiving dinner and the food was mediocre at best. I'd recommend Craftsman for the bar and maybe a casual bite.

We had a wonderful time in the courtyard. Service was perfect, the meal was fantastic for each of our 9 picky people and the beer menu was exemplary. Having been there for a special meal, we will now be returning for many more.

The food here is wonderful and not your average bar food. We have been here several times and are never disappointed. They almost have a huge craft beer selection, draft and bottles. Great, friendly service every time

Looked initially like a hole in the wall and we were a bit nervous but once you go into the main dining area it was fantastic. Excellent Low Fashioned cocktail and the food was amazing (pork belly sammie). Kaitlyn our server was very attentive.

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.

Wonderful beer list and food.
We enjoyed several local beers with our dinner.
The burger was moist and flavorful.
The thin crust pizza with a sweet tomato sauce was tasty.
We enjoy coming into this restaurant each trip to Charleston.

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!
