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!

Hostess was on a iPad device when we arrived and did not acknowledge us when we arrived for an awkwardly long time. Waitress was slow and unfriendly also. Food tasted ok, but small portions. We had no silverware and could not get any because our waitress never checked on us or came back at all. Drinks ran dry and were never refilled. Left and went to another restaurant after paying. We are Local and will never go back. Embarrassed to have taken guests for such a poor experience.
We both had the half price burgers. Cooked properly and were very tasty. The house mustard and mayonase were and extra flavor to the meal. They grind there own burger meat with some pork and that made it another different taste. It kind of was like a bacon burger in every bite.
Great beer selection & good bar food with panache
Plenty of beers to chose from and many local options on tap. We had a good lunch -- butterbean and sweet potato falafel and hubby had the oyster po boy. Pretty plates and tasty too! Our server mentioned this is a hopping place for the late night crowd since their kitchen is open late. Many local servers come here when they leave work. There's a small courtyard too.
