Great bar, great location......consistent food but pushes the price/value slightly over the edge. Location obviously dictates the belief that they can get a higher dollar for their fare but it needs to be moderated a little. A $19 dollar soft shell app. is well beyond a value.

Although the chef is a James Beard recognized wunderkind, the food was pretentious and not terribly tasty. Noise level is off the charts and seating requires you to be best friends with everyone around you. Wait staff was snotty and indifferent. Cannot recommend this restaurant.

Our Uber driver recommended this place for Sunday brunch, so we popped in on the off chance. First tip - definitely book ahead! I thought the hostess was a bit snooty that we hadn't called ahead... if you haven't got a table just say so, we were only asking! But we did get the last 2 seats at the bar.... More

We came to The MacIntosh once again, this time for an early pre-theatre dinner and were once again impressed with the food and service. I started with a soft shell crab special followed by tilefish and my wife began with scallops and had swordfish as an entree. All food and service were excellent. Recommended!

I've been here twice and both times I really loved the service and the drinks. The food was very good, but not blow your socks off. I had a beef dish that was wonderfully spiced. I also had swordfish and it was grilled beautifully but the associated veggies were to spicey. The desert, a buttery lemon cake was pretty good.

We dropped by on the way out of town early Sunday afternoon, for brunch. Garbage Plate, The Duke and the MAC were ordered. The service was pleasant and knowledgeable but the food was the real prize, a fantastic mix of flavors with sufficiently gracious proportions. There are so many places to eat in Charleston but do yourself a favor and... More

We came here on a Friday at the beginning of March for some drinks. We liked the lively atmosphere and the music of a band called The Blues Green. We spent a couple of hours there and we will go back possibly for a Sunday brunch as suggested by members of the users forum of TripAdvisor.

Had a nice meal here but the food was so-so for the price range in comparison to Husk or Fig, which are at the same price point but way better in terms of presentation and approach to discussing options with guests. On the plus side, they were very accommodating with regard to a food allergy in my party, so it... More
