Good service where the server presented my wife with special treats or candies for our anniversary.

Very special. The USS Yorktown provided aerial bombardment during WWII in the Pacific campaign (Operation Flintlock). My father was a US Marine who must have seen the Yorktown or the aircraft from the Yorktown bombing specific sites before the major amphibian landing on the Marshall Islands.

Although we were a bit concerned after reading a few not so favorable reviews, we were pleasantly surprised with our dining experience. We had an early dinner at 5:45 in the main dining room.

The view was incredible and the chairs were comfortable. The interior was updated and lovely. The patio chairs were metal, so perhaps that is the reason for the complaint from other patrons regarding the chairs.

The food was very good and service was excellent. We did however ask for an appetizer and a couple of drinks that were on the menu that they did not have. Although the server was unapologetic, we were not bothered by that. We aren’t picky so we just order something else.

We would recommend this restaurant to friends.

We came in at 9:45 on Sunday night probably not too excited to see us, but we had been at a baseball field all day and were desperate for a good meal. The service was excellent, our server was professional and polite despite our late arrival and kitchen was fast and still producing a high quality meal. I wish we had arrived earlier to appreciate the view. We would try again.

This was a really disappointing experience. First, we were not seated in the dining room but in a more open area by the bar. The chairs were the most uncomfortable chairs I have ever encountered. So much so that I actually asked for another chair. The waiter said he would get one from the dining room. Never happened. We ordered our food. I had a gin and tonic before dinner. It came with no lime. Who serves gin and tonic without lime?! Okay, so I got the lime. The food comes...they serve it to the table next to us (!). There is confusion at that table and they realize their mistake. So they actually pulled the plates off that table and served them to us! Well, the swordfish was actually cooked nicely. That was about the only good thing about the experience. It was so loud there that you had to yell for the person sitting across from you to hear you. This is not a place I would return to at all.

We were there for a special occasion and it just didn't quite meet our expectations. The food was overpriced for the quality. The service was just ok. Was too loud inside. Requested a seat with a view of the harbor and got sat in front of a window with a huge bar in the middle. There are much better places to eat in Charleston that are better priced.

This restaurant could be much better with just a couple adjustments. The one thing that really bothered me were the sticky concrete floors as soon as I walked in to the seating area past the bar. Food was good but not great, I think a new chef could really give the food some pop. Service was descent but not outstanding. It was very loud so for me it would be best for a happy hour. I would call it average but had a nice view and some other dishes that came out looked tasty. I will likely return for a happy hour sometime or maybe a lunch.

Maybe we caught them on a bad night...crying babies and noisy children at nearby tables, slow service (from bar and kitchen), a long delay before advising that fried oysters were not available (a primary reason for selecting the restaurant)...food was good but just not the experience we expected. We would give this restaurant another chance and you should, too. If nothing else, the view is spectacular and it’s a great place to watch the sun set.

Our reservation was at 8:15. We ordered immediately We did not receive our food until 9:35. One steak was undercooked and both meals were cold. Not cool, cold. The waiter said he was terribly sorry and could not have been nicer. He said there was a problem in the kitchen and offered to cook them again. The manager came over and reiterated that they would cook us another meal. We said no thank you that if they would give us our ticket we would pay for our drinks. She acted as if she could care less

Started in upstairs bar area. Lisa was friendly and took time with all patrons.... enjoyable experience. Best Dark and Stormy ever had.
Went downstairs for dinner reservation. Romaine our waiter was polite and informative about menu. Food was delicious. My husband had a special which was Corvina fish and it was a generous portion in a beautiful presentation. I had fried oysters and they were very large, lightly breaded and not at all greasy. We liked our table by the windows as requested. Nice views of harbor and Yorktown. Sunset views not available this night but Lisa had showed us some great pictures of other days. Would definately recommend. Most enjoyable evening of our trip.

Very average-We had high expectations but food was not impressive. We were seated by a dark wall under construction with no view, apparently they will not seat large parties by the window because they have to push tables together? Best part was the hush puppies-
