    Horrible. Waitress only put in one order we ended up having to share our meal. Food was over seasoned and under cooked. Cold. Wedge salad was hard I probably will never eat there again.

    I have lived In Charleston for 31 years. I would consider myself a Foodie. I haven’t eaten at COAST in years. The food was very disappointing and we will not be returning. My husband and I both ordered off of the Smoked/charred menu. He ordered Scallops and I had Salmon. Both entrees were so charred that they were not edible. We literally left both meals on our plate. On the upside, our friend that was visiting from Texas, ordered Shrimp & Grits and he said it was okay. There are too many great, great restaurants in Charleston to serve bad food. I cannot recommend COAST to friends, family or visitors.

    My husband and I have dined at Coast many times since 2007. We have loved coming here over the years, but it had been a while since visiting. We have always trusted their seafood to be wild caught and as local as possible. I was very disappointed by the shrimp. They were definitely farm raised and filled with chemicals. They were opaque with an unnatural shine that only farm raised shrimp have. Other than the shrimp the rest of the food was okay. A little too salty. The Swordfish was very good! The bar has been better, but I know it had been a long night for them! We had a good time eating calamari and watching the game and enjoying each others company and the company of the people around us. Overall it was a fun night, but I hope that Coast will switch back to better seafood.

    Went for restaurant week menu. Food was cold, steak and shrimp was overpowered with blackened seasoning, you couldn’t tell the difference between steak and shrimp except texture, pasta dish so salty you lost the flavors of the seafood, calamari app and craft beer was the best things we had. Server left us without refilling water or checking on our table. We didn’t even get the dessert that came with it. Worst experience I’ve had in Charleston. They comped our beer and we were left with a nearly $80 tab. We will not be back. After dinner we were going to Charleston Music Hall. During the concert we were watching both of us were hungry since we couldn’t eat our dinner.

    4 baked oyster appetizer, one the size of a dime! The real kicker is they up charge for credit card users. This is a chain of 6 upper scale restaurants (Holy City Hospitality) here in Charleston. Charging for credit card use is typically found in Mom & Pop venues. It’s nowhere on their website. It’s not on the menu. It appears on your bill. When asked, the waiter said it’s on the door. The notice on the door said, “A discount will be provided if paying with cash”! Very misleading. Lots of better dining experiences in Charleston and they gladly accept your credit cards! Not many of us dine out expecting to pay several hundred dollars in cash, we don’t carry that with us. You lost our business!

    Had dinner with friends prior to a show at the Charleston Music Hall. It is Charleston Restaurant Week so it was wonderful that we were allowed to split one of the specials (Calamari, Seafood Pasta, and Key Lime Pie). Portions were plentiful so it was the perfect amount of food. Staff was attentive. We had plenty of time prior to the show. We certainly return in the near future!

    We took advantage of Restaurant Week and had their special menu - 3 course set dinner. I had the chicken bbq appetizer, seafood fettuccine main course and a glass of Malbec is of dessert. My friend had the fried calamari with aioli sauce, surf & turf and keylime pie. All were AWESOME!

    We went for New Years day dinner It was our first time the menu is well varied with many options for all types of diets. My steak dinner was undercooked and the french fries were cold they gladly took it back to get the desired medium rare results which when returned came with the same cold french fries. Plus overall the dining room would do well to have a professional cleaning.

    The service was very good but the food was terrible. I ordered a special offering of wood grilled flat iron steak (medium) with scallops. Both were overcooked with the steak being charred all across the bottom and having a bitter after-flavor. The scallops were tasteless, on the mushy side, and they lacked the firmness of fresh seafood. My wife order wood grilled Mahi Mahi with julienne vegetables and mashed potatoes. The Mahi was over-seasoned with pepper and severely charred on the bottom. It also had an unpleasing taste. It was returned to the kitchen and the wait staff offered to replace it with a pan-seared Mahi. When it arrived, it also was over-seasoned with pepper and was undercooked to the point of being rubbery. The staff comped her order and we decided to call it a night.

    Unfortunately all of my food was cooked incorrectly. My steak was rare and extremely chewy, my swordfish was over cooked and dry, and my bacon wrapped shrimp was still grey and the bacon still rare. Our waiter was great but I ended it making a meal out of my baked potatoes. The manager did offer to prepare me a new meal but I’d already eaten part of my husbands. Great service, not great food

    This was my favorite seafood spot for years, this time it was just ok. We waited for a long time before they assigned us a server. The ceviche which was once amazing tasted like they just dumped salsa on shrimp, they even serve it differently now. My friend and I were not overly impressed with our entrees, my fish was over cooked and hers was under seasoned. I will try it again hoping this was a blip.
