We had a group of eight here for a friend's birthday celebration. They were able to accommodate our large group quickly and we were seated immediately. Our server knew that we were celebrating a birthday and was very attentive to my friend. We were served quickly and the food was outstanding. The vegetarian option was cooked to perfection and the...

The Macintosh is a lovely restaurant with excellent seasonal food - interesting and diverse selections - this is not your day to day restaurant - but special occasion fare. It feels special and they deliver it well. The restaurant has an excellent wine list and cocktail offerings. The staff is uniformly good, and the service is friendly. The dimly lit... More

Food was excellent, very flavorful and unique offerings with a twist on southern chic. The restaurant is located on a bubbling street with a lot of nighttime activity. Good for folks who want a great dinner before a fun night out.

Everything we ordered was delicious, starting with the crispy sweetbreads. They are lightly breaded with a rich creamy interior. None of our group had ever tried sweetbreads, but even my 13 year old son loved them. Duck breast was cooked to a perfect medium rare, and braised pork shoulder was fork tender. The bone marrow bread pudding side had a... More

Perhaps I was swayed by a lovely day in Charleston, but the food here was outstanding. Two of us had two appetizers, a shared main course, and two desserts and it was plenty of food. The service was superb. The only drawback was the noise level, so it's not an intimate dining spot. While the menu is not extensive because... More

My husband and I ate dinner at The Macintosh with friends while visiting Charleston for a wedding this past weekend. We LOVED it!! We were seated at a long table by the window and the entire restaurant has a really neat, big-city, trendy atmosphere to it. We ordered salads to start and all ordered a variety of menu items and...

I would eat at this place every time I come to Charleston. The bar is small and packed. The food is eclectic and priced reasonably. They have something for everyone. I am typically a steak guy but ordered a vegetarian dish and loved it. I had food envy for what everyone else ordered. This place is next to some fun... More
