    Our experience was excellent! The waitstaff (Robbie) was outstanding in service and friendliness. My husband and I both got grilled fish and they were so tasty- the grilled veggies and Brussel sprouts were also very tasty.

    Service was awful (rude waitress, never checked on us, rarely talked to see if we needed anything)! My plate (surf and turf) was excellent, but my wife’s Mahi Mahi Tacos were bad.

    Our meal was excellent. However, when I server realized she was not going to upsell us a large amount of alcohol, the service level decreased. What she did not think about was we did not tie up her table for hours, so she got an extra turn.

    Upon booking on OpenTable we put a note that we were celebrating our anniversary. When we arrived for our reservation the hostess was not very warm and welcoming and did not mention that we had made them aware via Open Table of our special occasion, we had to tell the server ourselves. Our server did bring us complementary sparkling wine which was so kind. Our food was very good. The brussels sprouts were so good! The blackened mahi-mahi did have too much blackening on it and was very salty, but tasty. While the table was clean, the light fixtures and the wooden wall separating the booths had thick dust all along it. We will go back.

    We showed up for a reservation at 7:45 and we’re told there were six groups ahead of us with reservations and it would be awhile-at least an hour-before they could get people seated. Terrible service. No space at the bar. Poor management.

    Coast Bar & Grill was busy. They sat us a half-hour after our reservation time. The manager was great, very apologetic, and bought us drinks. Our server was fine. Unfortunately, our appetizer came out with our meal and no apology. The food was a bit above average. We would consider eating here again, but honestly, we found a couple other seafood restaurants to be better.

    Jambalaya was very good, scallops were tiny though, service by matthew was very good, fish tacos were very bland and seem like taco bell ish...prices are high, drinks were good...my wife's rice seemed undercooked and hard...had to order and pay for a replacement of hush puppies..4 employees tended to a man at the check in desk for 10 minutes over a non existent reservation..we finally had to say something in order to get seated...1 person could have handled the issue but 2 managers, a hostess and another employee apperantly were needed to hash it out as we and others waited for our tables...naaa probably not going back any time soon.

    Laid back bar and grill with really good food and service. Ash assisted us with the menu. He was attentive throughout dinner making the experience relaxing after a day of touring.Wedge salads were cold and Oysters were fresh and cleaned well. We had the Swordfish perfectly cooked on their oak grill and everything was served hot. Key lime pie was a perfect finish to our meal. Great place to stop during your travels!

    This was our first visit to the Charleston area and our first restaurant visit there. We were disappointed by the lack of southern charm from the hostess. She needs better training. A smile now and then would help. We were early to our reservation and did not mind waiting. We were promptly seated at our reservation time. The waitress was very good and the food timing was excellent. This is a seafood restaurant and the food was edible but not exemplary. Prices were on the high side even in today's overly charged economy. I am sorry to say that this is not a place I would willingly visit again when I am in town.
