We stopped for lunch. The shrimp and grits were excellent. The roux was just right; not runny and not goopy. That takes skill. The Bellini was very good. The thing that earns them a five are the people. The service was friendly, dignified and professional, all at once. You just do not see it that often. Five for the people.... More

Not just a dessert bar. It's an actual restaurant with beer, wine and cocktails. Truly amazing food.

If you are looking for something to tantalize your palate, you must visit Butter Tapas. This place elevates traditional southern cuisines to a whole new level. The salads are fresh and lobster corn dog is delicious. The shrimp and grits are the best in the area. The cupcakes are so moist and heavenly. You have to try them all, especially... More

We have had their dinner and decided to try their brunch. We were pleased and satisfied with both visits. Looking forward to our next visit!

And was not disappointed! I enjoyed the crab cake, which was good, but the asparagus that accompanied it was so fabulous! Also had the duck wings in a Korean glaze! The chef/owner recommended a great red wine to accompany my meal! Thank you! I'd definitely come back!

I've lived in Charleston for over thirty years and have tried numerous restaurants. Butter tapas is now in my top three for best meals ever. I went there on a rainy Wednesday evening. There was only one two-top when I arrived. I was greeted by the waiter and chose a seat by the front window. The waiter took my order... More

My bestie moved to Charleston and when I came to visit, she (a true foodie) picked this as the place she wanted to celebrate her birthday. My only wish is that I could've taken an order of the Thai Duck Wings back on the plane! Nonsensically good. I also had the Lobster Corn Dog which, while a fun idea, probably... More

We found Butter Tappas after investing what some of the top chefs were doing in Charleston. April is an experienced chef who has trained under some of the best. While this is Tappas the plates are shareable. The menu changes based on what is in season. My family of four order a number of different things and loved them all.... More

This Restaurant is now known as BUTTER TAPAS and serves some very delicious Tapas. They still sell their mouth watering cupcakes as dessert. One looks at the menu and wonders how the ingredients can taste that good. Be assured the combined tastes are fantastic. From truffle fries and Pear salad, to seafood combos. Unless you have allergies to watch for,... More

Great little place for an interesting variety of tapas. We tried zucchini chips, truffle fries, and mussels (white wine, lemongrass, and garlic.) Everything we had was delicious. Servers and chef were friendly and had good suggestions about what to try. The hours they serve food differ from the hours they are open for cupcake business so call ahead and check... More
