    Coast was understaffed and disorganized. I ordered blackened swordfish and was served mahi mahi but with the sauces described for the swordfish. So basically a bait and switch. I told Lucas the waiter and never heard a word back. Still the fish and sauce were pretty good. The other 3 with me had acceptable meals but nothing outstanding. The vibe seemed to be one of chaos; they need to fix this and they can be alright, but this was just a non-memorable time.

    The steak had so much char on the outside that all I could take was char and it crumbled off like some sort of coating. It was also sliced incorrectly thus it was chewy. The shrimp and scallops were cooked perfectly.

    The mahi mahi was terrible — under cooked and expensive. All our dishes were under seasoned . . . Clearly mass produced without a lot of care. There are so many amazing places to eat in Charleston. This is not one of them. Will not be going back here.

    Although we were sitting in the bar during happy hour the server did not honor the happy hour menu. The bacon cheese grits also have jalapeño which were not in the description. The French 75 tasted like a kamakazi. It was a cute restaurant and our server was good.

    My husband is seafood allergic and the mgr asked him if he knew this was a seafood/steak house. My comment: why would you offer steak if you cannot accommodate seafood allergies. We come back every year and never an issue! So disappointed in Coast this year and we won’t come back again.

    As with our past experiences at Coast the experience was superb! I'm still kicking myself because we left and I forgot my leftover Flat Iron steak which was excellent. Just the right amount of seared crust on the outside and tender on the inside.

    Wow what a pleasant surprise. Food was OUTSTANDING. For $45, ON VALENTINE’S DAY, I got a glass of Prosecco, bacon wrapped scallops(huuuuge!), mussels (the big ones), a huge bowl of deelish fries, and an amazing chocolate cake. Husband had the best crab cakes I ever tasted along with seafood linguine, also excellent. The ambience was great. Will definitely go back!

    When my friends and I, come to Charleston, for entertainment, we come to Coast for dinner. every time. Sometimes, it’s 10 of us, and other times it’s four, the service is great. We are senior citizens, patience is required. The food is good and and the price is within our budget.

    Very prompt and friendly. Next door to our hotel. My wife had swordfish which was very good. I had grilled salmon also very good. We changed up our sides to grilled vegetables and jasmine rice which made the meal even better. We’ll definitely go there again.

    Don’t look for fine dining or even casual good food. Had dinner there last night before a show and am still feeling sick. The shrimp skewers were virtually raw. My husband is a connoisseur of jambalaya and was not happy at all. He had the VA oysters on the 1/2 shell and was pleased. I had the shrimp ceviche and was pleased as well despite the wait for the appetizers. We should have stopped at the appetizers.Our server, Natalie was charming, but could not save the evening. We will spend our dining out dollars elsewhere in the future.

    We were there last night the 6th at 5:00 PM. We had a reservation and I noted that my daughter uses a wheelchair. The manager was on top of it. He knew about it and had a plan. The entrance is not accessible but he opened a side door to get us in. Our server was excellent even though it got busy while we were there since ABBA was at the music hall next door. The manager checked on us twice and was very attentive to us and everyone inside. The food was amazing and the quantity of food was surprising, a gracious plenty. Desert was delicious. We'll be back.

    The service we had was excellent, and our blue crab dip appetizer was five stars all the way. Our seafood was good, but nothing spectacular. The breading was too heavy and kind of drowned it out the flavor of the shrimp and fish. My husbands fried oysters were nonexistent end the oysters that is. They were very tiny, and completely overrun by the breading. But overall, It was a lovely experience.

    My Husband and I were in town for a couple days. We arrived early and sat at the bar for a drink and were promptly seated at our reservation time. Amelia was our server and she was very helpful and attentive. We started with the complimentary warm sourdough bread which we devoured. Our two entrees were the Red Drum fish, low country style and the Shrimp and Grits. Both were excellent and tasty. The portions were very generous. We shared the key lime pie which was very good. The price for the meal was very reasonable. We would definitely return and also recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area.

    We had a wonderful dinner at Coast Bar & Grill! Our server was honest about specific dishes and she was outstanding. The food was great, and the atmosphere was family-friendly. The only issue we experienced was being charged a “non-cash service charge” despite paying with cash. Once this was brought to our server’s attention, she did issue a refund of the difference.

    We’ve been to Coast numerous times, usually before a show at Charleston Music Hall. We’ve always experienced great service, but this time our server, Amelia, was over the top good! She knew her menu, and was exceptionally attentive. About the food. Sorry, but really disappointed. The mahi in the tacos was mushy, vegetables were bland, and the presentation felt and looked rushed. Two in our party of 4 nearly fell walking from our table into the ladies room because the floors were incredibly slippery, greasy. Not ok! After stating all of the above, I know you were running short staffed. Unfortunately, I’m paying the same for well staffed or short staffed. Do better Holy City.
