Chef Jeremiah Bacon and his crew crank out some of the best food in the nation. Seriously one of my Top 5 Meals of 2014 (and 2013).

Group of 4 for dinner with industry colleagues/friends in town for a trade show. Stand-out service from Jerry (from Avon-by-the-Sea NJ). Not something I usually focus on unless really slow - but he is the best! The food quality along with the wine selection was just great. Rather astonished to see how late it was from having such a good... More

The Macintosh is in the heart of the action in Charleston and is popular with all ages. It is "pub like" and the food and the service are very good. If you want an evening to enjoy good food and friends, try it out.

I have now been twice to The Macintosh and got the burger both times and it didn't disappoint on the return visit. As good as I remembered. It is one of the top 3 burgers I've ever had, and I've tired quite a few burgers in my travels. The vibe/atmosphere is also a great part of the restaurant. It has... More

My husband and I visited recently and sat at the bar - as we did not have resevations and they book out pretty far in advance for core times. We had the much lauded burger and it is VERY good. Would I go out of my way to have it again - probably not. The mashed potatoes were superb -... More

Had a couple of cocktails and apps. The seafood charcuterie was very good and the first time I had seen that on a menu. Fun place. We enjoyed our dinner here.

Fantastic meal at Macintosh! Loves the seafood charcuterie and the swordfish! Everything was so well balanced! The manhattan on tap was delicious. I have to find chocolate bitters now!

This is a MUST when you visit Charleston. We went for brunch (party of 4) and each of us were raving about our meals that we decided to go back for dinner on Friday. For brunch I had the Grilled Spicy Chorizo with a Dill Bloody Mary. The Chorizo dish was spectacular - I'm still thinking about it! The Dill... More

For a town this size, Charleston has far more than its fair share of great restaurants. This is one of them. To best describe it, it is the kind of place where even items on the menu that don't sound good are actually amazing! Case in point: the carrots...I ate one just to see what they tasted like...then another, and... More
