The Burwell's Story

It all began with two historic buildings and two culinary trendsetters with a vision. Two years later, Charleston's "Modern Steakhouse" was born.

Burwell’s puts a modern twist on the old school, traditional steakhouse. This invigorating concept brings the steakhouse into the new world. From mixology to menus, you’ll find a refreshing take in this dining experience. Enlightened, affordable, glamorous, approachable, and unparalleled service define this new chef driven, award winner.

Perfect for everyday dining or a special evening out, Burwell's Stone Fire Grill has stepped things up a notch. This is the first of the next generation of steakhouses – high energy, affordable and exceptional quality.

"Burwell's is already tearing it up on Yelp and Tripadvisor,
garnering more stars than a meeting of the Joint Chiefs of Staff."

The best seafood... is at a steakhouse!

There's an unmistakable pulse and sense of anticipation as you walk the runway-like center hall of Burwell's Stone Fire Grill, surrounded by the energy of the dining room, bar and open kitchen where the chefs take center stage. This team of culinary experts have gone to great lengths to provide amazing seafood dishes that truly set Burwell's apart from a traditional steakhouse.

So many places in Charleston claim to have great seafood, and some claim to be famous or the best! We insiders know how much some of this is foolish, even trickery. The truth about food is inside the restaurant, after the meal, and by its massive local following, not it’s its marketing agenda. At Burwell’s, you actually get the truth. There are no PR firms or Marketing teams, just the word of mouth and Burwell’s Award Winning Reviews.

"This modern steakhouse goes beyond the basic meat-and-potatoes, with a large selection of
trend-setting cuisine, fresh seafood, and, of course, mouth-watering steak dishes
cooked over a 1,400 degree, wood-fire oven or 700 degree stone."
