Edmund's Oast Ratings and Reviews

The food was excellent. I had the tempura fish and chips, both of which were cooked perfectly. The service was a bit slow and one of the appetizers we ordered never appeared. In defense of our server, though, she didn't hear that part of our order because the restaurant is extremely noisy. (Wish they could do something about the acoustics). Our server apologized profusely, and offered all 4 people in our party free desserts of our choice. The house-made toffee ice cream was divine! We will definitely be back, despite the noise and spotty (but well-intentioned) service that night.

Food is tasty, acoustics horrible, skip on the desert. The acoustics are really bad. We couldn't hear what each other or the waiter were saying. The food however was super good! I had the flounder and the favors were delightful. The other people I was with got the ricotta and the burger and liked their food. We split two scoops of ice cream and corn bread for desert and should've skipped it.

Loved the creative menu and the beers on tap. Had the PB+J beer which was awesome. Food was off the charts as well... we had the burger, fresh ricotta, the beef jerky, fries, and the beef tartare. Everything was perfectly done. Good service, fun place, excellent food + beer! Looking forward to a return trip.

My reservation was at 12:45, and we arrived at 12:40 and were told our table would not be ready for a few minutes. The other member of my party was walking with a cane and said she could not stand for very long. The hostesses motioned her to a high top chair which she said she could not navigate. So, she was left standing and was never offered a regular chair. At 12:45 on the dot we were seated at a table that had been vacant and ready when we arrived. We were very disappointed that the unsympathetic hostesses refused to seat a disabled person because we were five minutes early. Had the table not been ready, it would have been understandable, but a regular chair should have been offered. I hope that this unfriendly policy towards the disabled was an aberration and not the way this restaurant treats handicapped people. The hostesses that were on duty that day need more training as they are not a credit to the restaurant. Except for the hostesses, our experience was very positive, and it was not our first visit there.

Second visit there but the server seem less interested with the job. Too soft spoken in this noisy restaurant and not very forthcoming with any information on the menu even with prodding. The server from our first visit was quite knowledgeable and helpful.

We regularly bring our out-of-town guests here for dinner. Food as in the past been on the very salty side, but noticed that they have changed the menu and cut down on the song considerably, at least in the dishes we ordered. Drinks are always interesting and delicious. The wide selection of beers is their biggest draw to the restaurant. Their charcuterie plate was also much better than on previous occasions. Was the first time I ordered the ricotta cheese which was a fabulous surprise. Enjoyed it tremendously. Please add more interesting dishes like this and I will be the client forever.

Loved this place. Very restoration hardware in design and delicious food at reasonable price. Our waiter was friendly and accommodating (I'm a vegetarian and he suggested a special plate, which was terrific!). Love the specialty cocktails.

A beer drinker's heaven - their selection ran the gamut from the faint of heart to the hardcore beer snob - something on tap for everyone! Food was excellent - the tuna special was truly amazing. And a must - the beef jerky. The service was great and very informative - made super suggestions on what to try.

Love love love.. Great ambience, young, fresh, modern. Great view of the kitchen keeps you entertained and close to the cooking experience. House made charcuterie was incredible. Beef jerkey was delicious. They make very very tasty beers. Everything we ate was great portion size and extremely flavorful.

This has become our favorite restaurant in Charleston. Great ambiance, service, and menu. I recommend going with a group and trying everything. Don't miss their housemade Peanut Butter and Jelly brew or the Pickled Shrimp!

This was the surprise favorite of our weekend restaurant tour of Charleston. The cauliflower app was amazing. We are still talking about it and want to recreate it. All of the veggies were amazingly fresh and local. We split a few small plates and the hanger steak entrée and there wasn't a bad thing on the table. They also boast a wonderful drinks menu. We each tried a few different beers and enjoyed them all.

This was my second visit to Edmund's Oast and it was just as incredible as the first. Excellent staff and super knowledgeable. The menu can be a little intimidating at first glance, but our server was great about breaking it down and explaining it. Same with the drink menu. You could tell her the type of drink you like and she'd give you several recommendations.
The food was incredible and I left happy and content. This is my favorite place to splurge at when I'm in Charleston!

My husband was in culinary school so when he loves the food served, it means he has critiqued it & found it to be superb! We ordered the cornbread & fries with basil mayo sauce then had the buttermilk pancakes & charcuterie for Father's Day lunch. All of it was delicious ! His main reason for going there was the craft beer which did not disappoint. Great food, drinks, & atmosphere - Edmund Oast has it all!

Very unique restaurant a little off the beaten path of the noisy downtown scene which i prefer. The food was prepared with the utmost attention to detail and originality. The wait staff was very attentive to your every need. I would go again next time i am in town.

We loved our meal!..delicious, unique menu, great service. But we were a party of six at a large booth and had difficulty hearing each other over the general noise. Will return with a smaller group...or outside.

It's a little off the beaten path from the Historic Charleston areas, but well worth the extra few blocks and a drive- plenty of parking. The room is very cool- well designed and very comfortable, and the attention to design detail carries through all the way to the menus. We visited for brunch on a Sunday and it was excellent. I had their turn on biscuits and gravy,and it was delicious. Highly recommended for brunch- and we looked at the dinner menu and will probably check that out the next time we're in Charleston.

We sat outside for a quick drink, and had great service. We were seated a touch before our reservation with great care, our server at the table (Palmer) was excellent, and the food was outstanding. A must visit in Charleston.

Ate outside which was better option as inside was VERY loud on a Friday nite. Chicken liver parfait was excellent as.were most dishes. We had about 8 different meals. It's fun, relaxed atmosphere that seems to be family friendly in courtyard dining area.
