Coast Bar & Grill – Charleston
Need to book at 5:45 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
This is our third or fourth time at Coast, but the food this time was excellent. I can’t say enough how delicious it was. The only negative was that the waitress gave us food before she gave us silverware to eat it with and then for our main course, they delivered my steak but we had to wait and ask for a steak knife.
Server was rushing the entire time to turn the table
Not friendly or helpful with menu choices
Last week at restaurant darling oyster bar the server was awesome
Knowledgeable about menu
This server was no help
Comfortable surroundings, plentiful menu choices and terrific service! Close to a host of Charleston destinations and parking is immediately adjacent.
We went to the CMH for a concert!
Great service, decent food great ambiance.
Delicious food lots of flavor. Plenty of fish options like a coastal seafood restaurant should offer. Plenty of food was so full that had to pass on dessert. Is now a favorite food destination in Charleston.
Great food and service. The raw bar is the best in town.
service and food were outstanding. would recommend coast to everyone.
Our waitress was amazing and so attentive sometimes the service makes your expiereince and this was an example of that
Coast was fabulous!!! I’m a seafood fanatic and their seafood was definitely on point! The menu is quite diverse, we are excited to be going back frequently.
Best Oysters my husband said he ever had.
We ordered the grilled scallops off the menu. We understand that they were probably to be cooked on a gas grill but the gas taste was so strong they were inedible. I sent mine back to which the server came back and stated “if I didn’t want them to taste grilled I should have ordered pan seared”. I have a gas grill we grill often and the food never tastes like propane. Needless to say we won’t be returning. This was a special date night and this was very disappointing and why we hesitate to try new places.
Awesome place. Awesome location.
Great food at a very good value. Their happy hour specials are amazing. Service is great too!!
The flavor of the steak and shrimp was both burnt. Should have been much better — very disappointed
Delicious food. Waitress was slow and not as attentive as one would expect.
Despite telling the server about food allergies and trying to review everything, I ended up extremely sick after the meal. Clearly the allergies were not communicated to the chef and/or the chef made a mistake. Very unfortunate as I lost out on a concert for which hundreds of dollars had been paid in addition to the pain and illness from the allergy.
This is our go to place for dinner prior to a performance at Charleston Music Hall.
Restaurant week menu
The appetizers: oysters and shrimp were very good
Entrees: shrimp and grits good
Surf and turf jalapeño shrimp good
Steak charred and just ok
Dessert chocolate mousse good
Coconut cake recommended by the server dry and tasteless
One person in the party ordered a ribeye and was not happy with the steak fatty and to much surface char
The server was very nice and attentive
I would recommend Coast to a friend for sea food only and to think twice before ordering off of the restaurant menu
My steak came back well under cooked for medium well, the waitress agreed and had it re-cooked and when it came back it was completely charred. We ordered bacon wrapped shrimp and the bacon had been burned as well. It was during Charleston restaurant week so it was very busy but even though I've had other positive experiences there in the past I will not be returning.
The sirloin was better than most filets I have had... The Ceviche was amazing, and I will definitely enjoy dinner there again.
Nice place close to our hotel. Good selection of seafood dishes. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal.
I don't like the choice of "Energetic" as a noise level. This implies that somehow "Energetic" (which means noisy) is a good thing. It is not. Restaurants should be quiet enough carry on a conversation with your guests.
Food was delicious and good portion size for the money. Mussels were very tasty! Highly recommend.
The food was perfect. We visited Charleston for a few days to see the town and enjoy the seafood. Coast has perfect seafood. We enjoyed the crab cakes and scallops, done perfectly. Wine was 1/2 price bottles. Got a great wine to enjoy. Key lime pie was super for dessert. Service was enthusiastic and the table in a perfect locatin for conversation. Next time in town, this is the first place we'll go.
Food was excellent, service was excellent! They ran out of the Chefs special which was my first choice, but the Cioppino was a delicious second choice! Will definitely be back!
Good food and a good time. Very satisfied.
We were visiting Charleston for New Years and have been to coast before and loved it so we went again!
When we visit we usually go to one of your restaurant
Service with a smile was very good. Food portions varied. Four Bacon wrapped scallops appetizer was good and okay value at about $14. Seared scallops, also four, with mashed potatoes $30. Asked for cole slaw instead of veg. I was okay with a $2 upcharge but I received a portion I could not see without my glasses and it was just average. Crab cakes were nothing to write home about. Desserts were good.
Unfortunately we leave enough time between visits to Coast that we forget that we were disappointed last time, the time before that and once again this time. Ambiance is good, service is pretty good, but somehow the food value for money does not pull it all together. Too bad.
Grouper was very under cooked.
Same piece returned with a gas grill or burnt skin taste.
Maybe “wood fired “ is not for me.
Very good crab soup and dessert.
Nice cocktails. Good service. Lots of fish choices.
We got four different appetizers and an entree to split. Mussels, crab dip, ceviche and calamari. They were all fantastic, except the ceviche had maybe just a tad too lime. We got the surf and turf for our entree which was supposedly a chef special for the night, and honestly it was just awful. It had wood fired salmon, a steak medallion, and jalapeño wrapped scallions. All you could taste was smoke with the salmon, the jalapeño wrapped scallions didn’t taste like anything except for jalapeño, and the steak was so tough that we couldn’t even bite through some parts (it was even cooked medium rare). Honestly the meal would have been fantastic if we had just ordered the appetizers. I would still go back, but now I know what to order.
Sea food was delicious and service was efficient. The only complaint we had was that we had food delivered to our table but didn’t have silverware. Once we made the waitstaff aware, they were prompt.
Service and food as we expected, always good
Nice atmosphere at this restaurant. The design was well built as the ceilings were high; the additional roof lines that were added inside the space provided a feeling of eating near the water in some fish shacks. Made it feel more intimate. The food was tasty as were the drinks. A very good overall experience with a last minute reservation.
We were passing through and saw that they had good reviews. Boy did they exceed our expectations! Service was fantastic, food portions were huge, atmosphere was incredible. The food was fresh and savory at every bite. I highly recommend this restaurant for any type of occasion. You will not be disappointed!
Food was fantastic. Would definitely eat there again.
Great food, service and atmosphere. We’ll go back again and again!!
The service and the food were wonderful, even better than expected
Had an amazing appetizer recommended by our server- the crab and avocado ravioli. Wouldn’t have picked it off the menu myself but it was SO good. Also would recommend the rare seared tuna. Delish!!! Will definitely be back.
