The food was good but, we considered over priced for what we got. There is much better food for less in the area. Yes, it is waterfront, however, to us quality of food and value is more important than the view.

Everything about this establishment shouts coastal ambiance. It is particularly impressive at sunset. Unfortunately, the food is good, but not outstanding considering the cost.

Great spot on the water. Enjoyed a spectacular sunset from our table. Food was great. The fried oysters & shrimp with grits big hit. Swordfish special was wonderful. Prime Rib delectable. Unfortunately, the service was not good. Our waitress seemed to be having a bad day and it was Thanksgiving. I would definitely go back and recommend to friends.

We went to the Charleston Harbor Fish House for Thanksgiving Dinner. First time we have eaten at the restaurant. We had a 445P Reservation and were seated immediately. The service was attentive. The She Crab Soup was forgettable...I would not order it again and would not recommend it. It tasted as though it was at least a day old...or just not all that good? I ordered the Turkey entree...everything there except mashed potatoes. It was tasty once I added salt and more gravy. We chose not to have coffee or dessert...by that time the room was full and the noise level (cement flooring and open ceiling) was annoying. I was also disappointed in the lack of view. Here is a restaurant on the Charleston Harbor and the seams of the windows fell exactly at eye level blocking the entire view. If you want the view you must sit at the elevated round tables against the back wall. We do not drink alcohol, so the bill for two (two soups, two turkey entrees) with tip was less than $100. This will not be a Thanksgiving Dinner I fondly look back on. Just OK.

We went here for Thanksgiving dinner. Three of us, our table was ready when we arrived. Our waitress greeted us promptly, took our drink order and gave us time to browse the menu. We each got a different dinner, two of us ordered from the special dinner menu, one from the regular menu. All of us were pleased with our dinner. I only gave four stars because the waitress didn't offer a dessert to the one person who ordered from the regular menu. Maybe there wasn't one available, she just explained the desserts that came with the other meals, took the choices and walked away. Yes, we would go again.

I ordered the raw seafood castle . It was so disappointing! A lot of the shellfish weren’t opened so I couldn’t eat them and the ones that were seem small and dried up. Not all happy with this dish . . Especially for 65$!
My date had surf and turf . Lobster and fillet . He ordered it medium rare and it arrived very well done . We sent it back only to wait and have it borderline raw . Very disappointed in the food

I had a very marginal salad but excellent shrimp and grits. (Not traditional but tasty) my husband had some sort of gelatinous soup and crab cakes that he did not enjoy. Our servers and the staff couldn’t have been nicer and were very attentive . The price was ok.

Went for anniversary dinner on last night of our quick weekend getaway. Service was slow for no apparent reason as the place wasn’t not even half full on a Saturday night at 8pm (that should have been a clue and red flag).

Wife and I split a wedge salad and it was ok. Not as much blue cheese flavor as I’d prefer. Wife had shrimp and grits which she had been looking forward too on the trip. She said hers was ok...nothing special.

I ordered surf and turf medium rare with shrimp. As I said the service was slow and took an unreasonably long time after we finished our salads. My steak came out very rare...not even close to medium rare. Sent it back right away and was brought back out still more rarer than I’d prefer but was hungry and didn’t want to wait any longer. By this time my wife was almost done with hers anyways. Also by this time my shrimp were also on the cold side. The meal came with “smashed potatoes” which was not what I expected to be. These were small potatoes appeared to be deep fried and not mashed like I anticipated. There were about 4-5 of these and 1 was completely burnt to a crisp which should in my opinion should never have been plated (I guess I’ve watched too many episodes of Chopped on Food Network).

I complained to our server and brought the manager out and shared my thoughts and she was apologetic. They offered to re make my meal again but at this point that shipped had sailed. They took my meal off the tab and cooked an Anniversary Desert so they get points for that.

Overall just a disappointing end to the trip.

This restaurant is in Mt. Pleasant--about 14 minutes from downtown Charleston. The pasta dish with lobster and shrimp was excellent. There were large lobster pieces and whole shrimp with the pasta. It was very good, but we could have shared the dish since we also enjoyed a bowl of she crab soup. We arrived after dark, so did not get to see the harbor view, but everyone said it was pretty earlier in the evening. The restaurant is hard to find, evening using the map. The restaurant is next door to the general store, and one can see that sign.

We have eaten here many times and it is usually very good. We had 7 of us for lunch but the food was that great. Batter on fried items was way too salty and I am a salt fanatic. My niece owns 12 Resturaunt’s was one of my guests and it was kind of a bummer. We made advance reservations and they did not have a table set up upon our arrival.
Hope it will be better next time.

Overpriced, very noisy, and small portions. The only obviously stand out was the view of the Yorktown and Ravenel Bridge. However, with the garage doors down the view was so obstructed from the doors structure it was less than stellar.

I reserved a table for ten at Charleston Harbor Fish House for my birthday dinner. My family and friends enjoyed the food, although our server could have been a more attentive. We never got our drinks refilled and she didn't inquire on how the table was doing more than once. Overall, we had a pleasant experience.

We enjoyed the food and the beautiful harbor view. Service was slow. We were almost finished with our appetizer before our wine arrived...and we also finally had to ask for appetizer plates since it was getting a bit messy to eat over the table . Not the end of the world but the pace of service and attention to detail was lacking. However, the food was excellent. We’re guessing it was an off night for them. We are looking forward to visiting again.

Waitress was one of the best we have ever had. She definitely connected with our daughter and made it special for her. The food was awesome as well. Best crab cake ever!!!! We did have reservations and we waited for about 15 mins which was fine. The confusing part was when we did get seated the room we were seated in was completely empty. Why the wait if that is where we were seated. It filled up after we were seated so really not sure why we had to wait at all. Hostesses didn’t seem o fully know what was going on while we were waiting.

The food was excellent, unfortunately the service was horrible. When we sat down we told our waitress we would forgo the appetizers and order dessert after dinner. During the course of our dinner there were several people that got up and left because of no service. Our service was slow at best. At the end of our dinner the waitress walked by and dropped off the bill and left. We were not offered after-dinner drinks, coffee or dessert. The location of this facility has the makings of a 4-5 star restaurant, however the service is holding it back. We live locally, however we will not be back. Charleston has too many good restaurants that want your business.

The waitress was wonderful. There was no rush with anything. She even created a plate with piece of awesome key lime pie on it with writing of happy anniversary on it. Special touch.

The shrimp appetizer was good but seemed onverge of almost being water logged. My husband had the fried shrimp and fried oysters and was disappointed that the oysters were not even size if a quarter. The Cole slaw was really good as we're the hush puppies. I would never have thought that honey butter would go well with them!

We were initially concerned that the restuarant was part of a resort. The food and ambience quickly dispelled our concerns. Food was good; the only disappointment was the burger which at every table at least one person was having. Expecting it to be something special, it was very disappointing. The clam chowder, however, was very good as well as the beet salad. Portions were larger than expected; a doggy bag was needed.
