CHS Eats: Burwell's Stone Fire Grill

Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope y'all had a fantastic weekend.  While ours was nice and low-key with time spent on the golf course and at home with football and the slow-cooker on, we did have some excitement to start the weekend when we joined up with some fantastic Yelp friends on Friday afternoon for a happy hour that turned into a happy night.
This was our second time drinking and dining at Burwell's.  Last spring, our local Charleston Culinary distillery tour ended at Burwell's, where we tried a delicious cocktail made with a few of the rums we sampled.  I love places that feature local ingredients and couldn't wait to go back!  

Whether you live or are visiting Charleston, Burwell's in the perfect location for a drink or full meal.  Located across the street from the east end of the Historic Charleston City Market, it's an easy walk from much of the peninsula, plus there is free parking right next door.

The restaurant is a huge space with 15+ person seating at the bar, different rooms and levels for dining, a rooftop bar, and my favorite spot (where we sat) the table right outside the wine room!
Of course, the first thing us Yelpers did when we arrived was "check-in."  To our surprise, every "check-in" gave us a free glass of house wine, so I was happy to sip on that while I looked at the rest of the happy hour menu.  Throughout the night, we tried the Spring Fever, Berry Bubbly, and my personal favorite, the Blueberry Mint Smash, all at reduced happy hour prices.  You can check out all of the drinks and ingredients here.  Happy hour takes place from 5:00-7:00 each evening.
We sampled a few of the happy hour food deals, too: $5 prime burger, delicious squash soup, parmesan fries, and deviled eggs.  The chefs were also kind enough to bring to our table an oyster tower and beef tartare - thank you, Burwell's!
While we did not have one this time, I highly suggest the "On The Rocks" appetizer we tried the first time we were there.  A 700 degree salted searing stone is brought to your table with raw filet tips and their 3 signature whiskey peppercorn, bernaise, and steak sauces.  You add the meat to the rock and cook each small piece to your own preference - so fun!  You know it's a good restaurant when they can convince you to cook your own food.
Last but not least, you know we had to finish the night with desserts.  Burwell's is one of the few restaurants in town with their own trained pastry chef.  Between us and another couple, we ordered the Charleston S'mores (benne wafers, peanut butter mousse, and homemade marshmallows) and a cocoa puffs brownie.
We all had a fantastic night, and I cannot wait to go back to Burwell's soon and to try more specialities like their giant crab cake or peach upside down cake!
