We were tired from a day of walking and looking for a good spot for lunch and a couple of drinks. We had walked past the Craftsmen many times during our visits to Charleston, but never tried it. The entrance is located on Cumberland Street, to the west of East Bay, behind Amen Street. Looking at the entrance from the... More

Awful awful awful. We sat at the bar and ordered burgers. The hostess was telling us about their burgers, how there is ground pork and ground beef mixed together and it's rare.

Great food, great beer. A nice atmosphere where you can relax with a brew, rye or wine and the pickles are even fantastic. Started out with fried pickles and bangers. Moved on to a really good burger and the banh mi. Loved the little potato rounds with lemon aioli sauce. Had a fantastic waitress (Agnes) who brought us some of... More

My husband and I stopped in for a refreshing beverage. Taylor was an absolutely amazing bartender and attended to us very well. I think she's the best, even better than Lauren.

Most beer choices I have ever seen. Did not eat but the food delivered to our neighbors looked great. Very nice atmosphere. Our bartender Taylor was awesome and very knowledgeable. Definitely would return.

Stopped for lunch, ate at the back bar. Great atmosphere and huge beer selection. I had a craft cocktail -- The Cumberland. The spicy ginger beer and bitters were perfect! My husband had Two Claw IPA and loved it. The pork belly sandwich and salmon nachos were off the charts! Apple slaw on the nachos, wow! I'm coming back... definitely!
