    Made a reservation here before attending a show next door. Service was great- all drinks and food arrived in timely manner. the calamari was excellent but our salmon entrees a little over cooked. other than that we were pleased. if you want a quiet evening, this is not the place but we knew that going in .

    The shrimp plate should called a French fry plate.. the low country boil as suggested by our server was “odd”, the salmon was fresh.. the coconut cake was dry & days old. Our server was not very attentive or personable… very “bitter”.. will not be returning..

    Was the first time dining with you my husband’s meal was very good. He was very pleased, my meal the salmon came out overcook had to send it back. The steak was done right on the inside but way over chard on the outside, and the bacon wrapped shrimp were OK.

    We had the fried combo which was a fish, a few shrimp and a couple of scallops and a lot of french fries for $28. I understand that food is getting more expensive but was a little disappointed in the portions. Service is great as well as the experience and I would still recommend.

    We chose this restaurant based on the reviews. The location is unique, the ambiance eclectic but service was lacking and the food wasn't as great as other reviewers had described. The Brussels sprouts and the crab soup were both very good but the shrimp cocktail was marginal and our main courses did not meet our expectations. I doubt we will return.

    Exceptional seafood dinner in a relaxing, fun atmosphere. We arrived early for our 6:30 reservation. We were given a buzzer and told our table would be ready on time. The host suggested we try the "smallest bar in Charleston" just outside in the alleyway... what fun! We had excellent drinks there and were seated right on time -- no rush to down our drinks - just brought those in with us. Service and food were exceptional. Had the fresh swordfish and the red drum -- both perfectly prepared... moist and delicious. Only reason we didn't give it 5 stars for atmosphere is because there was a lot of dust along the shelf next to our table -- place could use a good dusting (yuck). It isn't a place for a quiet, romantic dinner... but it was a fun setting. Aside from the dust - we throughly enjoyed it and will definitely go back next time we need a pre-theatre dinner spot in Charleston.

    My husband and I were in town for the weekend to visit my sister and brother in law. We haven’t seen them in a while. We were out to dinner to celebrate birthdays and the upcoming holidays. Our server Justin was wonderful. He went out of his way to make sure our night was special. The food was great. We will definitely be back!

    Food was great. We had the jambalaya and fried seafood plate. On the pricey side, but not terrible for Charleston. Service was so-so. It appeared that they were understaffed. Once we were actually able to order, the food came out quickly.

    The fish was over cooked, dry and hard. The etouffee was over spiced coming from NOLA folks. The wedge salad was very good, lettuce needed to be just a bit crispier. The cole slaw was outstanding.Jalapeño cornbread was worth having again. The fried combo was excellent. Don’t order the fish expecting it to be moist and flaky.

    We shared the appetizer: grilled oysters with manchego cheese— a great light starter. I had the shrimp & grits, very hearty portion and enjoyed very much. My friend had the BLACKENED SWORDFISH with BLUE CRAB ETOUFFEE & JALAPENO-CHEDDAR CORNBREAD. Pretty much licked the plate clean. Raved about how great it was. We were impressed with our server’s knowledge of the wine list and the dinner menu.

    Our experience at Coast was less than what we were expecting. The food was very salty. Our waitress was not around most of the time and our even getting our bill and paying for it took far too long. The restaurant was not in great condition as there was dust everywhere and dirty bathrooms. We will not be coming back.

    The restaurant is located next to the Charleston Music Hall which was very convenient. We arrived early and sat at the bar for a drink. We enjoyed the sitting at the bar and we were able to switch from to eating our dinner there without having to move to a table. The food was excellent and the staff was great. I will be back the next time I am in Charleston.
