Dinner for 3. Salads were very good. Grilled Mahi plate was average. Small portion; disappointed. Fried shrimp plate better than Mahi. Crab dip was average. Decaf after dinner excellent. Server was outstanding. Underwhelmed with food overall, and probably would not return.

We love Coast but the service has really gone downhill. We started with the Calamari…it was not very good and not a lot of Calamari. The mussels were awesome and so was the wedge salad! Shrimp n grits are usually amazing but these tasted like pool water. The scallops were average. It was a nice time but the service was incredibly slow.

It started out slow. After almost after 10 minutes of waiting we had to flag someone down. Might want to tell wait staff that a good server will acknowledge a table and at least say I will let your server know you are seated Once acknowledge everything was good

We went for restaurant week but the menu was so fabulous we ordered from the regular menu. They also had a mussels special that a portion of the proceeds were donated to an animal shelter for Betty White. Great everything...

It was truly the worst restaurant food that I’ve ever had and I’m not a picky eater. I feel bad because the employees were so nice. Hope they can turn it around because it’s a cute place.

This was my wife's and my first visit based on a recommendation. First of all, the waitress we had was simply not there and in somewhat of a daze. She also did not listen well in taking the order, or remembering to bring things that were requested. The food was served just warm, and obviously not prepared when ordered. The red rice we both had was simply not cooked properly and the worst we had experienced. We would certainly not return, or recommend it to a friend.

We went to Coast for our first time on Christmas Eve. We were really pleased with the wide array of choices on the menu. The calamari appetizer was TERRIFIC. Our server Alex was attentive, fun and knowledgeable. We both enjoyed the entree we ordered, and even had a great mousse cake dessert. Great experience!

The location and setting were nice. The fries and seafood were cold when they came out. The jambalaya was way too spicy… and we typically like spicy food. It was not edible. For Charleston the price was reasonable and the service was fast.

The service was outstanding. We requested Alex and she was awesome! The oysters, Calamari, Adobo shrimp, Swordfish, and carrot cake was so perfectly delicious! It is my favorite seafood restaurant downtown and never disappoints...especially great for my birthday celebration. Thank you Coast and crew.

Coast just isn’t the same. It used to be our go to restaurant in Charleston but after last night I won’t come back. It used to be a great variety of food choices but the menu has been dumbed down and the quality product is severely compromised. So sad.
