    The Fish House was recommended to us by the front desk at the Mt Pleasant-Isle of Palms Hampton Inn. A little bit of a drive and a little hard to find, but well worth it. Food was good, view was great, and our server took great care of us. Overall, a nice night out.

    Prices were high for the quality of the food. Food had no flavor. My husband had fried oysters, shrimp and scallops with collards and the fried food was put next to the collards and all the juices run all over rest of the food. I will never go back.

    The view is great overlooking the CHS harbor but the food was average. Tuna special was flavorful but dry and not very hot. The mac and cheese was not hot and overwhelmed with bread crumbs. With hardwood floor and no curtains, it's rather loud. Service was average and his recommendations weren't great. There are many other CHS and Mt Pleasant restaurants with better food and service.

    Lunch was empty on a Wednesday afternoon. Server had no one to talk to but us. Somewhat annoying. Wife had the Grouper sandwich which she enjoyed. I had Shrimp Scampi over linguine but I guess they were short on linguine because it was served in a soup bowl. Made the 5 shrimp look large!

    Booked restaurant cos staying in hotel. Lovely big room with gorgeous view of aircraft carrier & water. Service slow but friendly. Waited ages for bread then meal. 2 of us had steak - one not cooked how we asked. Tasted funny - not nice. Other guest had fish & chips which was far to salty. Expensive for what it was too.

    My family visited the Charleston Harbor Fish house on a Saturday night after making reservations through Open Table. We were seated promptly and at a great table overlooking the harbor. Our server, Danielle, was attentive, professional and very nice. We ordered raw oysters and fried pickles for appetizers and they were fresh and tasty. Our entrees were pecan crusted grouper, shrimp and grits, lobster ravioli and crab cakes and everything was delicious. Portion sizes were perfect, even for sharing a bite or two around the table. For dessert, we had key lime pie and a HUGE Milky Way chocolate cake slice. Both were very good and ended our meal on a high note. We will definitely be back the next time we're in town. Thank you, Danielle!

    We are local. This was our first time at the Fish House. The crab cakes we had had more filler than crab; the steak was under cooked. It came very rare vs medium which is what was asked for. The tuna was excellent but did come veryrarebutService however was fine and server very polite. As to the atmosphere, we went for the sunset and had requested a table by the window. However the noise level at the bar was so loud we asked to be moved so we could have a conversation.

    My overall impression of this restaurant is excellent if you like small portions, nothing hearty here. Our meals were just right to where you won't get stuffed but you will have enough room for dessert. Our waiter was easy to get along with, was a lil' knowledgeable of the menu and we made ourselves right at home.

    Third time visiting Fish House. After a company outing, and a date with the wife, went back for Brunch. Food was awesome, views specatular and we are from the area and still love it! Highly recommend the place. Only thing not rating the food outstanding is the syrup that came with the waffles. Way way too out of the box with the gourmet syrup, and has a very very bitter aftertaste. Stick with pure maple syrup.

    My husband and I spent our anniversary weekend in Mount Pleasant. We made late reservations at The Fish House with hopes of being seated at a table with a premium view. When we arrived the staff was very hospitable, however we were seated in a room with a different feel from the rest of the restaurant. The room was very bright and the view wasn't as fabulous as it is in the other side of the restaurant. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful when we asked for a different table. The service was outstanding, and the meal was very good. Next time we will go earlier, maybe for lunch, and will be specific about the table/view that we prefer. We will go back though, and would recommend to others.

    We have eaten a couple there other times. The food has been good each time. The service this last time was awful. Waiter was nice but was either oblivious or overwhelmed. Asked for butter for bread but had to ask twice and we had eaten all the bread by the time he got back. Had to be reminded twice if drink order and request for tartar sauce. The view is beautiful but there is definitely a training problem with wait staff. Our waiter told us he hoped we all had a wonderful experience as we left, and we all laughed as he seemed totally unaware of how frustrated we were. There are so many great restaurants in the area so we will bring our wallets to another one next time.

    Gorgeous view of the harbor; scallops were fantastic, but it took us 3 1/2 hours for six of us to eat. My kids definitely wouldn't last that long, so glad it was just adults. The service was so slow the waiter offered us free drinks, but then we were charged for them. They definitely need a new bartender- ordered a Mai tai and it tasted like alcohol on ice-had to send my drink back and the second one wasn't much better. My friend switched to wine because they couldn't mess that up. Our bill was all out of sorts, but it was my husbands 40th birthday so didnt want to spoil dinner with a scene. My friend asked the waiter to do something embarrassing like singing to my husband for his 40th- never did happen. Last time eating here.

    Our dinner at Charleston Fish House was the occasion of a 16th birthday. The service was excellent and they accommodated us by acknowledging the birthday girl, and bringing the cake with candle that we had brought. The food,however, was inconsistent. The crab cakes were quite good, but the 3 different fish dishes that we had were not. Each fish entree was overloaded with toppings that masked the flavor of the fish. A 'crispy' grouper was so loaded with a topping that the fish was mushy and lost any 'crispness' that was intended. The setting of the restaurant is beautiful and provides an exceptional sunset view. If the food preparation improves, we will return.

    This was our first time dining at this restaurant. On a previous visit to Charleston we saw the restaurant while on board the USS Yorktown at Patriots Point. Decided to try it on this visit to Charleston. Service was superb - waitress kept an eye on us and was readily available whenever we needed something. The food was exceptional and without a doubt I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area. It is, however, somewhat pricey so just keep that in mind.

    It was our second dining trip. Te first was was great but this visit not so much. It was extremely busy which is good for the restaurant but took forever for us to get our food. Bistro steak was tough and not cooked as requested. Very small portion...did not look like 8 oz steak. Caesar salad was just average. Service was very slow and we were there for 2 and half hours. Very noisy when at capacity. I thought it was too expensive for the experience.

    After making a reservation, we were seated and waited 10 minutes for the hostess to come back to take our drink order and then another 15 for the hostess to come back to take our order. Evidently there were not enough waitresses because we were told that our waitress was working a 30 top and didn't have time for us but hostess would take our order for our "waitress" to put in. We left.

    The service was poor. We had to repeatedly ask for anything we needed. They were not even busy so in my opinion service should have been better. My husband ordered a standard drink off the menu, it was not fit to drink. The food left a lot to be desired. Very disappointing. The view was amazing though. The location of this place is gorgeous.

    Best view in Charleston from the outdoor bar. Good atmosphere in the dining room. Service good. Bar drinks were mostly ice. Ordered oysters on the half shell and they were very small and not very good. Worst she crab soup I have ever had. Did not even taste like she crab. No crab in it, very salty and lots of cheddar cheese. Never had she crab with Cheese. My husbands grouper was good. Very expensive for the quality.
