Local oysters were sweet. Maki was perfectly cooked and nicely sauced. Rice portion was inexplicably tiny. Dessert tart was delicious.

I was given a dirty water glass with lipstick still on the glass. That started my bad experience at this restaurant. I had to point out to the waiter and immediately asked for a straw. I was told they charge 1.00 for a metal straw. That was fine. What wasn’t fine was the waiter completely forgot about me requesting it. I ordered the soup that came out lukewarm and the salmon that came out salty. I am not a local but someone who’s in town for business. I wished my experience was better at this restaurant since it was highly recommended at the hotel I stayed at.

Still our Go To dining spot in Charleston, but prices have gone up a good bit over the past year, after holding flat for several years. Not much more room price wise before it will affect the score - let’s hope the increases are over.

We were seated immediately and had a beautiful view! We ordered the hush puppies as an appetizer and unfortunately 0/4 of us liked them... My daughter ordered the seafood pasta and said it was too salty, and I ordered the fired trout which was tasteless. Our drinks remained in filled for most of the meal.

A mixed bag. Nice to eat outside and to have a waterfront view (Look! Dolphins!) My fried flounder was excellent. But my wife hated her shrimp, saying it tasted like rubber and hadnt been cleaned. The restaurant was nice enough to comp her food.

I chose this restaurant because of its location on the water and was a bit worried it might be mainly a tourist destination but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service. We sat on the balcony overlooking the water which was lovely.

We chose to eat here on recommendation and from reviews online. We booked a reservation and were seated outside at a lovely table overlooking the water.
Our server Mike was very good and helped us choose some very tasty appetizers and our dinners as well. We both ordered the fresh Snapper which was pan seared and served with a butter dill sauce which we chose from several sauces offered. We began with the fried green tomato crab stack which was delicious and also had their
signature crab and lobster stuffed hushpuppies. These two items alone could be a dinner.
The collard greens as a side were delicious. We also got some green beans with our dinner that were very tasty. We were too stuffed to try any dessert!
I would come here to eat again. Do ask which fish is fresh and which is not if you are wanting a fresh catch of the day.

Was okay! Crab cake appetizer was small! The noise level was just too high for my liking! This has been one of our go to spots but it’s getting a little stale on the menu selections! Time for a change! Oh....you can’t get a straw for your iced tea because they are saving the sea turtle. However, you can still get plastic stir straws at the bar! I guess stir straws are safe for turtles!

Restaurant in a great location in Charleston. Parking garage within short walking distance. Hostess very nice. Server nice but not as attentive as she should have been. Food was a little pricey for what was served. Quality of food was good.
The view was the best part. That is if you could get a table with one. We did & were happy.

The hostess accomodated our needs and ended up changing our table after a request to move to a more scenic location. The service and the food were excellent. We also appreciated the waitress giving us 4 separate checks. I'm glad we sat outside because the inside was very noisy and not suitable for conversation. All in all, it was a lovely evening.

Always a stop for me whenever I am in Charleston! Can always count on great local seafood and an attentive wait staff. Reservations are a must or if you don't mind waiting the bar is a great place to enjoy a drink or just have your meal there! Charleston's only waterfront restaurant.

Our waiter was the best. He made great recommendations and gave honest replies when asked about different menu items. Also when he saw I wasn’t eating the veggie that came with my meal he volunteered to bring me something else. I wish I remembered his name because I would ask to sit at his table again.

We had reservations at 530 arrived few minutes early. We were seated immediately. It's a lively place with the tables being quickly. The bar stayed full the whole time. I had crispy whole flounder. Had the apricot sauce on the side. Served along with red rice and butter beans. The flounder was great. Very few places serve whole flounder like that. Definitely will be back.
