    It was I fun and lively place. My boyfriend’s fish with the pineapple salsa was great. My tuna was supposed to be medium rare but it wasn’t. I didn’t send it back because you’ll always get shade for asking for your tuna cooked more. The shrimp Cocktail was great and the shrimp was well seasoned.

    A fun place to gather with friends. Our server was cheerful and attentive. The portions were quite generous and well prepared. I didn’t like th slaw, but I’m a slaw snob. Too inventive—kind of bacon-creamy. Fish on top of the fries took some of the crispness away. I didn’t eat the calamari, but one member of my party said it was the best he’d ever had.

    Coast delivers - really friendly service and a good vibe in the restaurant. Food is very good - not top shelf, but neither are the prices, so really good value for what you get.

    Service was slow, server always had short responses. Order two salmon cooked same way, one cooked as ordered, the other way overcooked. Had a reservation requesting inside table, put on porch and watched people with no reservations get sat inside. Second visit, probably low on list to try again.

    The seared ahi that my husband ordered was well done. The manager handled it and brought out a beautiful plate of correctly cooked seared ahi. The problem was, the second piece of ahi that was brought out was gristly. This was probably out of his control with being able to tell ahead of time.

    Justin was an excellent waiter. Very knowledgeable about the menu and very friendly. Three of us had scallops which were delicious and one person had the Halibut which was also very good. We had mussels as an appetizer and the best Hush Puppies with honey butter. We have been here several times and have never been disappointed. One of our favorite restaurants in Charleston. Highly recommend.

    There were plenty of open tables when we arrived for our 7pm Sunday night reservation, yet we were seated at a tiny 2 top next to the wait station. We had to push the table out my back wasn't right under the sweating water pitchers. Shrimp & grits was a bowl of gloppy gravy. Mussels in Jambalaya had an offensive taste, so he did not eat them.

    Nice location and decor. The staff was very nice and service was good. Unfortunately the food was a miss. We ordered two side salads and fish tacos. The salads were drowning in dressing and the fish tacos had no taste, extremely bland and disappointing. There are many other better places in town to eat.

    Service was fast and great! Good just not on par with their usual. It was a busy evening. We ordered three apps and just weren’t happy with two. Calamari was excellent. Mussels were pretty good, but only about half the portion size you would normally get at a restaurant. The conch fritters were not our cup of tea at all(and we normally like them).

    Great time at Coast. We started at the Smallest Bar in Charleston and then made our way right next door. Food was great. Service was attentive. Next time I wouldn’t choose the high top tables and would sit at real tables given the choice. Good choices of Southern favorites.

    We had dinner here with a group of 4. This is a nice place that isn't super stuffy, the waitstaff wear t-shirts, but the prices are similar to other high end restaurants in town. The food and service were excellent, and the interior is interesting. We had early reservations and were seated at our time. I noticed that when we left the people waiting were dressing nicer for the evening than we were ( we weren't sloppy, all collared shirts), since we were having dinner at the end of our afternoon in town. My point is that you can be comfortable in either case with your attire, although I wouldn't come here in a t-shirt and flip-flops. This place is located down an alley, so if you are on John Street, don't expect to see it from the sidewalk. We enjoyed our dinner and recommend this place if you like seafood.

    Coast was recommended to us by a gentleman at our hotel and he was right on the money! It was lovely. I thoroughly enjoyed my grilled shrimp etoufee style. It was one of the best shrimp dishes I have had. My husband also enjoyed his grilled salmon. I highly recommend a visit!

    Fun place for a big group. Service was great but food was nothing special. One fish dish was pretty dry. Two of didn’t care for the stuffed flounder. Might go back but would try something different.
