View is great. Food is just so so. The tacos and peel and eat shrimp were over cooked.

The service we experienced was wonderful but the food was just so terrible. From the mushy fried green tomatoes to peel & eat shrimp that was slimy & far from fresh. We heard great things and were so disappointed.

We had dinner reservations for Thanksgiving and sat down at the table at 530pm. They were already out of many of the dinner choices. Our meals were served almost two hours after we ordered. The kids were hungry but the restaurant didn’t even have bread to hold them over. The prime rib was mostly fat and undercooked. The service team seemed oblivious that anything was not going well and made no attempt to apologize or correct the situation.

Nice water views, good location. Staff was nice, friendly and helpful. But the food was very average at best. We had Thanksgiving dinner there and the turkey dinner was just "meh" served luke warm, nothing on my plate was hot, but we waited so long for our food to come out, I just let it go... kid's pizza was barely edible. The two others at our table had fish and said it was good. I will not be going back.

My wife and I both had the grouper as our main course. I had decaf coffee; she had water. We also had pecan pie for dessert (I added vanilla icecream to my pie). The grouper was delicious; both my wife and I agreed that the portions were just right. The dessert was delicious. The waitstaff provided excellent service. This was our first visit and we plan to return.

The pumpkin soup was outstanding, the salmon was great, and so was the grouper. The views are awesome. Definitely worth a visit whilst in Charleston.

Nice location
Nonchalant front door staff
Relatively ok service
Overpriced pasta with Lobster and Shrimp but didn’t exactly hate it, new and interesting, but certainly not 30$ portion!

Do I regret it? Probably not because Charleston has become the Mecca of new food and new cuisines!

Go for it but it’s a 3

The service was fine, and it's a great area. I have had amazing seafood in Charleston and this was just disappointing for me. I read Dave reviews about the shrimp and grits and it was just not very good. They recommended a fish dip and that was a mistake. It's also VERY expensive for what it is, and I was surprised at the limited selection. We come to Charleston often and this was our first time here, but will go back to the places we know are great.

Service was extremely slow. Food okay. Waitress blamed the wait on my gluten allergy. She then told us to take our time bc she was tired and didn’t want new people to be seated at our table. Atmosphere is casual and nice, probably better if a day to sit outside, but harbor view from inside mostly blocked by the US ship that is docked there. Definitely our least favorite meal of our 4 day trip. Also my gluten free bread was served on top of the regular bread which makes it unsafe for me to eat. All other restaurants we visited in Charleston understood a gluten allergy/celiac.

Location and scenic views were outstanding, but that was all it had going for it that night. Our server was very pleasant but very inattentive after he brought us the appetizer. He was giving one table his undivided attention while we sat there with drink glasses empty most the meal and plates we had finished with were still on the table and in the way. Not once did he come back to check on us. Another server happened by and filled our glasses at the end of the meal. Then of course when it was time for the check our server magically appears. As far as the food, the calamari was very good. Only wish my meal was as good. The shrimp and grits had flavor but the temp was not hot and the consistency of the grits was a lump! They were certainly NOT creamy! The fried shrimp was actually a plate of fries with a side of shrimp. Other than the view this place is not a good value for locals. There are way too many seafood restaurants that have better food and service for less $$. I don't mind paying, but I want what I pay for. This place didn't deliver on food & service!

I expected more non-fried seafood options on the menu but what we ordered was very good. Our waiter knew nothing about the menu - his first day on the job, but he should have been better informed. Noise level so bad we couldn’t have a normal discussion across our table. Loved the view.

The food was outstanding. The service not so much. They appeared to have 3 waitresses on duty on a Friday night. Ours was new. She did her best but there were too many tables. The manager and the busboys were trying to help but it was way too busy.

Great atmosphere and decor with harbor views. However, the chicken caesar salad was simply a small size side salad and left me unsatisfied. For $12 how about providing a decent amount of lettuce. Very dissappointing. Prices aren't worth the food portions but the food in general is good.

Also, service left a lot to be desired. We had empty salt and pepper mills at our table that we actually had to get ourself from another table due to our server's lack of assistance.

Won't be returning to this restuarant again.

Excellent service and food. Although they had three large parties going simultaneously, they were still able to manage restaurant with only minor delays. We were in no hurry so we just enjoyed the gorgeous view of the Charleston Harbor.

This was our first time here for dinner. We have had many great lunches and brunches. The dinner was excellent. The service was excellent. Our server Mika was very friendly and did a great job. I had the filet mignon and it was excellent. We love this place. The view of the Yorktown and the sunset are the best. The people here are always very friendly. Duane and Headley during the day and Mika for dinner. We highly recommend this place for any occasion.

Meika was very nice and incredibly attentive to our needs. Food was great, the sunset was amazing. A few people in another party in the restaurant were a little too loud, but the ambiance was fantastic overall.

The ambiance and view was great and made up for our waitress’ lack of responsiveness. The food was average and my husband complained that it was too salty. He had the chicken breast. We had calamari for an appetizer and it was OK. I had the lobster and shrimp pappardelle and it was very good. I would go back and be selective about what I chose to eat.

Took my wife for her Birthday. We are both from Charleston so not much is very new. From the waiter to the view, to our plates. Everything was surprisingly very good. And the food was the freshest i have had out of any restaurant in a long time. Will be back soon.

The harbor view is blocked by the window framing. The height of the chairs make it difficult to enjoy the scenery. Also, the seats furthest in in the left side have a clear view of the many recycling bins on the left side of the facility. The food was excellent and plentiful.

Would recommend to a friend for happy hour with apps or ambiance. We had amazing service, but honestly the food was just ok. If I was back in the area, I might go back for drinks but probably not dinner as there are so many better dinner options in the area. The view of the harbor is beautiful, and if you are staying at the resort next door then this is absolutely a must do.
