We decided to try and do something different on our vacation and booked a cooking class at Charleston Cooks! There were four in my party, and we were joined by about eight others in the kitchen. We were presented with a menu of what we were going to prepare for the evening meal (salad, main course, dessert, sweet tea, and... More

I am not one to ever pass a good kitchen store when I travel and this one was indeed fun. Lot's of local foodie flair and I did pick up a new gadget.

When planning our trip to Charleston, we were told to visit this store. We had fun browsing and bought many items for souvenirs as well as ourselves. There was a cooking class happening and we decided when we visit again, will take one of their classes. Am thinking of returning next Spring!

We always visit Maverick Kitchen Store when visiting Charleston or Greenville and enjoy looking at new ideas or the latest gadget. This visit I had hoped to find a cookbook on fish but unfortunately their cookbook selection is very limited. The chef/staff there was very knowledgeable and happy to assist or answer all questions. Yes, I did buy another half... More

We came here because my wife is a chef by trade to checkout what this store had to offer - we walked in with our two kids to look around, the staff made us feel extremely unwelcome and we almost felt like being followed. They clearly don't like kids In the store and for all I care what they have... More

What a great store - wish we had had time for some of the cooking classes. Picked up accessories and gadgets we never knew we needed and a couple of great cookbooks. Very helpful staff

Only unique aspect is the historical building the store is in. They carry the same products as Williams Sonoma and are pricier. Some of the food products are unique to Charleston but other than that-nothing spectacular.

cooking lessons are like a Pampered Chef show, showing the equip,net to buy. Can't believe they charge for the classes. Items they sell are quality but overpriced. Staff is not friendly or willingly helpful. I think they think they have a lock on the market. Skip it.

Great store that is full of all kinds of special and unique cooking gadgets to make your life easier and your food better. Even better, the store also offers free cooking classes in an incredible kitchen classroom setup. We will be returning for a class on the next visit.
