It’s hard not to talk about food when thinking about the best of Charleston. From dive bars to five stars, the Holy City is a mighty force in all things food. A city can’t have a nationally recognized food scene without phenomenal steakhouses. Thankfully, there is no shortage of melt-in-your-mouth steaks in Charleston and these five steakhouses will prove it.

Even though it opened recently in 2015, 5Church has no shortage of good press.

Burwell’s Stonefire Grill calls themselves one of the most “forward-thinking” steakhouses in America and we agree! Getting to know the farmers that provide their food, Burwell’s assures quality ingredients and quality cuts of meat.
