Let me say first that the restaurant is too dark. A little light on the table would have made it easier to see the menus. The menu is limited- like 5 appetizers and 6 entrees but this is a must stop in Charleston! This is one of the top three meals I have ever eaten. My tastebuds applauded! I am... More

This was a very pleasant surprise. The decor and ambiance are great, but the food is the prize. The seafood special -- grouper -- was prepared perfectly and was quite interesting. The service also was very good. Add this to the list!

We had all been so looking forward to dining at The Macintosh. Very disappointed. The room is so loud we could not hear each other. Our server was very arrogant and distant and slow and distracted from our dining experience. Food was good but there are better restaurants in Charleston.

The Macintosh was well placed for a first-time-in-a-long-time trip to Charleston several months ago. We arrived in town, parked at the visitor's center and had a wonderful lunch before hitting the town on foot to get reacquainted with familiar favorites. The location served as an easy mark for meeting up with other folks, too. If you go early you might... More

A little contrived when it comes to ingredients, but well prepared dishes and a beautiful if a bit hectic dining room. The wait staff are super nice, but over worked, taking away some of the experience, but we loved our appetizers and entrees and would highly recommend.

Just had drinks and the bacon happy hour specials at the bar. Delicious pork sliders and lettuce wraps, with some nice drink specials available. Gets crowded quickly, so if you want to make sure you get a seat get there right at 5.

The Macintosh came recommended by friends and definitely did not disappoint. The service was A+ by Meagan who described the menu flawlessly. The presentation was stellar and the taste amazing. Would go back anytime in a heartbeat.

Was pleasantly surprised and very impressed with The Macitosh. Innovative and delicious twists on classic southern dishes. We're still talking about the corn salad with mint and fresh herbs and the scallops with pork belly and chestnut angoletti. But nothing tops the huckleberry basil ice cream, which was one of the best things we ate in Charleston.
