Great food - everything is farm fresh. Service is awesome, in a great part of town and it is fabulous. The wait staff knows A LOT about the menu and is very good at explaining what certain dishes are.

The food at Macintosh is very good, the ambiance seems to be more bar & grill than a fine dinning experience. The staff was attentive but always seemed rushed and distracted.This is an expensive restaurant and the dinning experience was marred by the ambiance. A very expensive bar & grill or a poorly conceived fine dinning experience.

This was my first visit to The Mac. I wanted to try it before bringing clients later in the month. The entire evening was outstanding. The food was excellent and both our server and the kitchen worked with us to customize the dishes we were sharing to the vegetarian in our group. We had the deckle, the triggerfish, the duck and the scallops: Recommend every one of those dishes. The preparations were exciting and the presentation attractive.
The service was outstanding from hostess to bartender to our server at table.
The atmosphere is casual but it can get a little loud so may be difficult to hear everyone in larger parties.
Would recommend to anyone for any occasion and plan to go back myself any chance I get.

My wife and I recently spent 4 days in Charleston SC. This is one of 9 posts that include; The Charleston Place Hotel, Johnson Limo-Taxi and restaurants Eli’s Table, Fulton 5, High Cotton, Macintosh, Magnolia’s, The Mezz (aka Sermets Corner) and Sticky Fingers. Read them all to get a flavor of the city and the experience. Please take the time to see the battery, see the many art galleries and shops (our favorite was the honey store!) and enjoy the many many good restaurants.

A local hip joint, our group of 17 really had a good time with the wait staff here. Now, there is open dessert that sounds strange; a pancetta with pickled blueberry’s. This group always order many appetizers and again deserts for the table to sample a little of everything. We ordered this dessert with some trepidation. Don’t be afraid – probably one of the best desserts I have ever had. Period.

The food was delicious and exciting to try, the hostess and the waiter were also just great. It is an easy place to go to- we didn't need a reservation. It feels very casual and open. Everyone is chatting and nice. You get to watch the chefs as they work- and they seem to work so gracefully! We even noticed the chef came out and talked to the tables by the end of the evening. It is the perfect place for a night out with friends interested in great food.
