The appetizers servings were just the right size. The service was excellent. I enjoyed the scallops and Debbie enjoyed the nudi. Happy 42nd wedding anniversary to the couple seated next to us.

A different look for Charleston, The Macintosh offers and industrial look with exposed Edison light bulbs; not at all the traditional Southern cushiony interior, but none the less comfortable. Make no mistake this “joint is jumpin’”. When we arrived for our 7 o’clock reservation it...More
