The food was good, but we had better for less $$ during our trip to Charleston.

Had the Thanksgiving Day meal and it was average. The pumpkin pie was not good. It seemed as though they microwaved it and then topped it with caramel sauce instead of whipped cream. Maybe their regular menu is better

Started out on bad note just trying to make reservations a week ahead -had to call about 4 times & a total of 4 days to reach anyone. Same thing happened when we wanted to add 2 more to our reservation. Upon arriving day of reservation, they didn’t have table ready & it was in the outdoor section & not real nice. Food was ok & not hot. Had to send it back. Very disappointed.

We’ve been to the Fish House several times. The food and service are always good. We’ve recommended it to others and have taken guests there.

Last night we had the worst service. The waiter was inattentive and a little impolite.

Additionally, when my wife asked to sub something for the fries, he tried to tell us that he was unable due to Covid. Not sure how putting vegetables on a plate instead of fries furthers the spread of a virus…admittedly, I’m not a trained virologist though.

Interesting menu. Would have loved some green vegetables. The catfish served on grits was in need of salt and pepper and there was too much ham broth. The swordfish special with pumpkin purée was excellent. She-crab soup was warm and creamy but I couldn’t taste crab in it. Excellent key lime pie! Good service. Nice view of the USS YORKTOWN.

Disappointed in every aspect of this dining experience; it was slow this evening and we found the service, the menu and the service to be disappointing.

The staff did not provide a parking voucher to exit and it took an additional 20-30' to get o our way, having been unable to exit the gated lot.

Went on a Sunday, so they had a brunch menu. Limited selection. My fish was ok
My wife had waffles and fried chicken. Waffles were stale! Chicken overcooked

Beautiful view looking at the marsh and the Battleship/ boats

Will try again, but not on a Sunday. Primarily for the view!

The menu they have is nothing like what is displayed on Yelp or elsewhere. It is barely a 3/4 of a page with very limited options.
The food was good.

This worked only because it was on premis and convenient We had a booth and it was overly bright. Lights could be dimmed. We ordered a calamari appitizer and 2 glasses of wine
We got the appetizer ate it and then asked for our wine. The girl was shocked we had not received. Dinner was great. Overall, next time we might take the free shuttle to Charleston and eat on the mainland

Would have preferred our waiter to wear his mask. All other servers had them on.
Service was a little slow for a Monday night.Food was good but little pricey for the quantity.

Probably our best meal in Charleston! The view of the harbor and Ravenel Bridge are delightful, our server, Alicia, was very attentive, and our food was fantastic. Highly recommend the Wonton and Pimento Cheese appetizer. (Parking will be validated.)

I had the grilled salmon which was delicious. The Brussels sprouts starter was so very good! Only problem I had was the parking exit which would not take payment so the lady behind us scanned her hotel card to get the gate up. We would've had to have four cars back up to turn around.

we are transient boaters and are here for a week. The service we received was exemplary . The halibut was prepared to perfection spicy and moist. The portion size was excellent and definitely a place we will eat at again.
