    This was our first visit to Kingstide and it didn't disappoint! We sat outside and even though it was a bit cool, the overhead heaters were perfect! The food was sensational and service was first class. A clear "go to" for the future!

    Second time there. Inside is way too noisy for us, but the porch is great if you can get it. Everything we ordered (cod, peel and eat shrimp, calamari, octopus, carrots, Brussel sprouts) was exceptional although my two adult kids were not crazy about the lobster rolls. With prices rising fast at other restaurants, I thought these were very reasonable especially for such great food.

    We went to dinner on a Thursday and requested an outdoor table. We set up our reservations 30 days out. We were seated right away and Jacquelyn greeted us immediately. Not only are the outdoor seats in a beautiful setting, they are a lot quieter than indoors. Different kind of menu, no chicken or pork and one steak on the menu. Octopus and mussels for appetizers that were outstanding. Our main courses consisted of items like trout, lobster cobb salad, lobster roll, and swordfish. They use a wood grill that enhances flavors. Everything was very good and at the end of the meal, all plates were clean. We will go back. Besides great food, our waitress made our meal fun and with laughter, get Jacquelyn if you can.

    Did a great job of accommodating us for outdoor dining (had issues in the past). Our server was awesome. On top of it. Especially since we had a toddler with us. This is our 2nd time. 3rd if you count our time at their rooftop. We almost have our order down: 2 octopus apps. 3 oysters Rockefeller each (total of 6). And we split the entree swordfish. My MIL got the lobster chowder or whatever their soup is. All of our dishes were great! …except the swordfish. It was over cooked and small. Not a huge deal. Still in search of a great entree (swordfish was over cooked and the lobster rolls are straight garbage) there. But if you stick to the small plates: you’ll be happy. Still want to try the seared ahi. And maybe the Lobster pasta. That or we’ll just each get a bowl of chowder. Their fries, btw, are great! All in all: great experience. Much better than the last time.

    Had a fantastic meal here tonight at an outdoor table with a lovely view of the water framed by palm trees and old live oaks. Every dish was superb, the cocktails were divine, and our server was fantastic! Charleston, despite being surrounded by water, has very few restaurants with a water view, and of those even fewer of this quality and ambiance. Such a wonderful addition to the Charleston area restaurant scene.

    Our server was great. The food was not what we expected The lobster was chewy. Most of it I couldn’t chew. The peel and eat shrimp were mushy. Not all of it but a good bit of it. Too much seasoning but a great way to serve it. The ambiance is powerful but the food is overpriced and not what we expected. I hope the restaurant will continue to stay open. Just not for us.

    Server may have been newish…..did come to the table a few too many times to get an order or check on us but it was as ok. I do wish bar tenders (everywhere!) could note if a drink is asked for “up”. More often than not Negronis arrive over ice….

    The restaurant is in a beautiful setting, but doesn’t rely on just that for its reputation. the food and cocktails were thoughtfully created and served perfectly by their friendly waitstaff. A memorable evening. (Qualification: We ate outside, so it was quiet. Indoors, the music was too loud.)

    Really beautifully presented food. Enjoyed our octopus appetizer and Tuna Tartar. My husband had the seared tuna and I had the lobster "ravioli-like" dish. He enjoyed his tuna, my pasta dish was just ok (not much flavor, and I didn't care for the sauce). The sides were the best items we had...the brussel sprouts and crispy potatoes were really good. Excellent service and a nice wine list and priced reasonable. Would definitely return, but would order something other than the "ravioli".
