Friends and I enjoyed the unique cocktails at Macintosh. The servers were more than happy to describe the different cocktails and we were happy to drink them! We then ordered several entrees and shared them- they were all delicious. Very nice atmosphere and an extremely friendly staff made for a really nice evening!

We chose to eat dinner at the Macintosh after a friend recommended it to us. I was so glad we did. Mary Katherine, our server was so knowledgable about the menu answering questions and making recommendations when asked. I had the grouper. It was fresh and delicious! Everyone at our table loved their meal! I had a drink called the... More

Friends had recommended this place whose chef has won numerous James Beard awards. The menu changes daily depending on what the chef finds at morning markets. This is an excellent restaurant with fine dining atmosphere and very good service. Our waiter was very helpful and accurate in his recommendations for the day. The wine list was attractive and wine-by-the-glass was... More

My friend and I have a hobby of dining out at 4-5 star restaurants. We came here because 1) The other place we visited sucked and walked out after one drink. 2) I saw it earlier in the day when walking down the street. 3) It's on OpenTable. The burger my friend got was one of the best we had... More

The Sunday Brunch menu is inventive and unique with names that grab your attention. I would return just to savor the Mac Attack again. The corned beef was a bit salty for another guest. Service was great (Janell and crew).

Was an amazing brunch! Met up with some friends for brunch, what an amazing atmosphere at 11:00 in the morning! The food was outstanding and the wait staff made the meal even more enjoyable. On my list to revisit as soon as I return to Charleston!

Came in with a large group of colleagues, got seated very quickly, and were led to the back room. Great ambiance and character, amazing fireplace in the back for chilly nights. Sat down and had some amazing wine, and ordered our dinner family style. All of our apps were very tasty and the service impeccable. Entrees came, and I was... More

We ate at The "Mac" last night. The entire experience was outstanding. The wait staff did an excellent job of providing our every need. They were so discreet and professional we hardly knew they were there. The manager, Ricky, was great too. He stopped by and checked on everything. Pure perfection in a dining experience.

We had an excellent dinner at Macintosh. We enjoyed four courses and although everything was wonderful, the grouper was the standout dish of the evening. Wines were delicious and nicely paired with the food, service was well-coordinated, and the manager even stopped by to check on our table. And despite it being a busy Saturday night, the noise level was... More

Almost everything on the menu is sourced locally. There were many unique items on the menu which is changed daily. The food was terrific, and the service equaled it.
