Excellent service-friendly, efficient server. Lively atmosphere but relatively quiet as we sat outside. The Trigger fish sandwich was delicious. We had a reservation for 11:30 AM and were seated promptly. By 12:30 there was a line of people waiting so it’s a popular place.

Reservations honored on time, hostess was friendly, table outside was perfect, server was attentive and knowledgeable, food was excellent. A little pricey, but not bad. Been here many times, great place.

Construction of hotel next door was stopped between noon and 1 pm, so it was quiet, but other times there is pile driving going on and you can’t have conversations at all.
Waiter Tom was wonderful! Very thoughtful and efficient.
Food was well-priced but hot food came out tepid-cool.

Went as a family while visiting Charleston. One of the only river front restaurants right next to all of the tourist attractions so it was perfect. Food was amazing, and we got a table right next to the river. Crap cakes and the whole flounder were top notch. Crispy and not dry.

I wasn't impressed with this restaurant. Our waitress was not very friendly and the food wasn't very tasty. This was an expensive meal but it was extremely overpriced for what it was. I will not return.

Weather was perfect, sat outside. Food was fantastic. Best shrimp and grits! Also had stuffed hush puppies, crab dip and a fried green tomato BLY. Sad they had no soft shell crab, after seeing it posted on Facebook.

Food wasn’t much to get excited about. My sandwich didn’t have much taste. The kids meal was expensive and didn’t include a drink. For $10, a grilled cheese and fries could have been much cheaper.

We'll be back, especially for the calamari!!! It's marinated in buttermilk for 24 hours, the size of mozzarella sticks! All 3 seafood seafood dinners we ordered were delicious. Made a good Old Fashion. Wouldn't go without a reservation.

Our first time eating here. The view is amazing. The service and food was ok. I was put off when I asked for a straw for my drink , the server told me I could buy a metal straw for.50. Use paper straws like other restaurants or highlight in your menu and website. We were rushed. It was a busy Wednesday night.

We got a lot of recommendations for this place because it's the only downtown Charleston restaurant on the water...it was good, but not great. It's definitely more for the tourists than for the locals. Being on the water, we expected really great seafood and it didn't particularly live up to the expectations. It was fine, but I'm sure there are much better dining options if you're looking for great food. The view outside is nice, but again, if you want great seafood, I'd recommend finding somewhere else.

Food was great, plentiful, hot...everything we wanted. The construction noise outside forced us indoors, but we could still see the water. They are doing a great job here, where the prime location could allow them to “phone it in” and not offer quality food...instead they are really maximizing their menu, portions and service. This is a must-go place on our Charleston visits.

Definitely a great choice. Sampled everything and nothing disappointed. Waitress was extremely good and provided the best service. Even with Covid restrictions I felt like it was normal dinner. Restaurant takes precautions seriously masks required to speak to staff and all wear appropriately. Plastic dividers on top of booths. Tables angled instead of straight provided more distance as well. Some outdoor seating was also available. We had stuffed hush puppies, spinach and artichoke dip, she crab soup, scallops, yellow fin tuna steak, Charleston red rice, fried okra, and green beans.
