The traditional steakhouse of old – a “boys’ club” of straight bourbon, giant steaks, and hefty prices to match – is no more.

At least, not at Burwell’s Stone Fire Grill. Labeled “Charleston’s Prime Female Steakhouse” on their web site, Burwell’s presents more “approachable” portions with a variety of cuts to cater to both men and women’s tastes.

Under executive chef Eric Huff, Burwell’s promises the familiar feel of a great steakhouse with a softer, more inviting energy. As a whole, it’s designed to balance the traditionally male atmosphere with newer feminine touches, from the size of cuts on the menu to the décor and layout of the restaurant.

A quote from Kenneth Emery, one of the concepts creators, sums it up nicely: “It is best explained with one simple word: lingerie. Both men and women love it!”

Straight from the horse’s mouth. 

The menu includes a chef’s choice “school of fish” over hot rocks with a grilled pineapple slaw, lemon anchovy aioli, and ginger chili sauce. This, along with a tuna feast on a Himalayan salt block, is just one of the family-style dishes Burwell’s will offer. 

We assume their “Sensual Sunday Brunch” will be equally delicious sounding. No word yet as to whether it will be family-friendly-style.
