This was one of our best dining experiences ever. The menu was unique, the food was absolutely delicious, and the staff was incredible. I'm NOT exaggerating when I say we were greeted and thanked by 10 different staff members, right down to the water server. ALL with a smile and a sincere pleasantness that you almost never see today. We... More

Megan was absolutely amazing! My husband and I were here for his birthday again, we are locals and both work in restaurants downtown. This restaurant NEVER disappoints. We highly recommended everything from the exceptional changing menu to the wine list! Try the bone marrow bread pudding, you fall in love! Thank you Megan and thank you Chef and support staff...

My husband chose this restaurant based on the multiple reviews he read on the menu. It all sounded rather spectacular on the page. We turned up timely...as this restaurant bills for no shows... I was a little surprised that the front of house is a essentially a "sports" bar. My husband disagreed(?) a TV showing sport is a "sports bar".... More

First visit to The Macintosh, and it lived up to the expectations. The service was wonderful, server was very knowledgeable and helpful with decision making process. Food was wonderful. We had two fish dishes and both were extremely flavorful, well cooked and paired well with sides that accented the dish favorably. We found The Macintosh to be a great find... More

They are surprisingly delicious! We will definitely be back... More

Just returned from a weekend trip to Charleston, 2 couples. We tried to enjoy dinner at the MacIntosh on Saturday night & were initially told wait time was 15-20 minutes. No problem, get a drink from the bar. The bartender was rude, got the orders wrong and then another bartender ended up taking our payment. Our table wait was more... More

We used to LOVE the Macintosh, and we make it a point to dine there on every trip to Charleston. Our last trip to the Macintosh in Feb 2016 wasn't as good as the many others, but we thought it was a bad night - they happen - so we made our typical Macintosh visit on our most recent trip... More

Even with recommendations, eating out at new places can be iffy. However, the food at this restaurant is absolutely divine!

Absolutely wonderful dining experience tonight. A friend and I chose to sit at the bar and have some wine and a variety of snacks. The menu is constructed so that bar/drinking snacks are as feasible as a complete sit down dinner. I had a lovely Sicilian red and my friend had a very nice Spanish red. We ordered the truffle...

We came as a group of 4 for brunch. We started with poutine which was pretty good, but the fries were shoestring fries and not very potato-y. For entrees we had two egg sandwiches, one garbage plate, and one chorizo dish. The egg sandwiches were straightforward and fine, the garbage plate was ok, but mostly corned beef, and the chorizo...
