This is a great spot altogether, amazing food, happening spot with a good atmosphere and great service. I had the chicken and I have to say it was incredible, I was smacking my lips! Our waitress went out of her way to serve us and the beer selection is incredible. Who else has Peanut Butter n' Jelly Beer??? great

One of the best meals I've ever had. I had the hanger steak and it came with a sous vide style egg in a hash brown bowl and it was one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten. My boyfriend had the bacon cheese burger and said it was better than the one at Husk. The atmosphere was spectacular. I would highly recommend.

The food and service is beyond wonderful. The housemade charcuterie is superb. The food is excellent and the desserts divine. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It's the first place we make a reservation for when we visit Charleston.

Love love love Edmund's Oast and would actually love to have dinner there again tonight! ; ) The restaurant atmosphere is lovely, relaxed and very open and warehouse-y. (Additional dining options outside for a more relaxed environment) We had table reservations and our waiter was very professional and attentive. He helped our table easily navigate the menu due to food allergy concerns. I had the hanger steak medium rare...yes please! And the desserts were quite tasty too, a grownup twist on smore's and decadent cheesecake. If you are ready for an un-rushed evening out with beautiful food combinations and the freshest ingredients possible you must go to Edmund's Oast.

It was a wonderful experience for our family get together. The beers were wonderful and the menu items we selected were absolutely Delicious. Our Server was very pleasant and well informed on their selections. We will certainly be back.

World class gastropub: Serious beer destination, top flight cocktails and wine list, and impeccable creative farm to table food. Great service from knowledgeable staff. If you're only eating one meal in Charleston, this is the spot.

Make a reservation for dinner. The place gets packed quickly. It was very loud inside. The outside was amazing and had tons of room to gather with friends. Our waitress made wonderful recommendations on beer. The food was awesome. There are A LOT of beards at this place. We would visit again.

Went last year while on vacation and knew it was the one restaurant I wanted to go back to when visiting again this year. It was amazing!!! Had brunch this time and the service, food and ambience were wonderful! I wish I lived in Charleston so that I could go regularly.

The restaurant is always a fun place. There is an amazing choice of beer. The server was very knowledgeable. Food was good. We had the charcuterie and cheese plate which was just okay. The rest of our choices were very good. IWe chose to eat outside as it was was too loud for conversation inside. It was an enjoyable evening.

This was the noisiest restaurant my husband and I have ever visited. There was no way we could hear each other across the table. My ears hurt for several minutes after we left. The food was good -- not great-- and certainly inventive. The wine list is small and high-priced. The cheapest bottle of white was $45 and prices went up steeply from there. We ate and were out of there in 45 minutes, $110 poorer and reeling from the noise. There are many Charleston restaurants with food as good as Edmund's Oast and with much more pleasant dining experiences.

The place is spectacular, open space with a nice view on the kitchen. Reception is cordial, we are quickly seated. It was a busy evening, even for a Sunday but the service was courteous and relatively fast. The beer is obviously the main reason why people come here but the food is no second to the quality of the beverages. The food was simply outstanding. We opted mostly for vegetarian and ordered some desserts. Everything was presented impeccably and the flavors were well balanced. The only negative is the level of noise but that was expected from an open space room. Highly recommended!!

We are huge fans of Edmund's Oast and have never had a bad meal. The service was off by a mile this time. Food was rushed, everything else was incredibly slow and our primary server was highly disinterested in us. That said, the manager was lovely and provided several special touches even though we never mentioned our dissatisfaction with the service.
Highly recommend this restaurant!

This was our third time eating dinner at Edmund's Oast and tonight it felt like they were phoning it in. The food was fantastic as usual - that's the good thing. But the server forgot one of our appetizers (no big deal, we had plenty of food); twice the food runners brought us both food and drink that were not ours; and the service between courses was extremely slow. All the staff and servers seemed to have bad attitudes, scowls and frowns (eapecially the front of the house, who seemed extremely annoyed that anyone was eating there.) With plenty of dining options in Charleston, I don't know why we would rush back. Their success seems to have gone to their heads.

My husband and I picked this restaurant primarily due to reviews of their beer selection. The beers were indeed excellent however we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of food! The mackerel crudo and grouper were amazing! We will sure to be back when we are visiting Charleston in the future!

We opted for dinner at Edmund's Oast while vacationing in Charleston based on its favorable reviews and we were not disappointed. The building itself is beautiful, and the food was well prepared, interesting and delicious. My husband enjoyed the hangar steak, cooked medium rare and I opted for the baked grouper, which was flaky and delicious. Do not miss the fresh ricotta plate - it was amazing paired with sourdough bread and charred vegetables. There's a fun, young vibe to this restaurant, but the crowd was nicely mixed. Our waiter was not particularly attentive, but overall we enjoyed our dinner experience. I would recommend Edmund's Oast for the food and the place. I appreciated their interpretation of local southern ingredients with an inventive, lighter preparation.

It's a nice place, but VERY LOUD. To the uninitiated (that was me) the concept, with beers listed on the wall - but they're not all beers, some soft drinks - but they're not all soft drinks, etc. was a bit hard to get a handle on. Perhaps the server could have asked if we'd been there before and given us an overview. I thought it was a bit overpriced for both food and beverages, although the quality of food served was just fine.

This restaurant had a very friendly staff. The bartenders were especially sincere and charming. It's a very loud restaurant however so be prepared. The food was good and innovative. The best dish by far was the fish and chips and it was on par with fish and chips we've eaten in Whitby, UK, the worlds best location in the world for British fare.
