The fried flounder was the recommended entree. It was heavily breaded with little flounder under the breading. I would not recommend the entree.

My experience was very good, with a minor hiccup. The wait staff was very friendly and very helpful as well. I had order the beef tenderloin as medium, and it came out a little under rare. I did send it back and had them put it back on the grill for a few more minutes. When it came back, it was delicious and still tender. Other than that, the atmosphere, food, staff, and experience was absolutely phenomenal. I cannot wait to go back.

Our waiter, Jennifer was great.
The only part we were not crazy about was they didn't give us time to enjoy our salad before the food came out, felt we were rushed.

I had been waiting to try Toast for a while, we moved here a year ago and my husband had been to the other location downtown but we had yet to make the one by us in Summerville. The staff was really nice so I can't say anything bad about the customer service. But the food was not all that great. I ordered a salmon, spinach salad and my salmon was overcooked. The portion was filling but with it being overcooked it just wasn't what I expected. My husband ordered she crab soup and the crab cakes. The she crab soup had WAY to much sherry wine in it, that he wasn't even able to eat half of the cup. He loves crab cakes but even those won't anything to write about. They were overbreaded and overcooked so they ended up being really dry. Such a bummer for I was so excited!!

Crab dip was very fishy. Couldn't eat it. Chicken was good, but sides were not. If the meal was tasty, would not have minded the price. Waiter was good. He was also the bartender.

Great menu. Reasonable prices ($50 for a couple). Good atmosphere for a date or date night. Great tasting food and first class servuce. The food presentation would make you think of a 5 star restaurant.

Our family of five went for Father's Day and had a very enjoyable dinner. The food was all very good, kids had fried shrimp, one had the burger w/pimento cheese which he loved, husband had the fried catfish which was really good and more than he could eat. I had an awesome salad with tons of grapes and walnuts that was triple what I could eat! There were 3-4 other tables filled when we arrived and we loved the giant roomy booth and the lovely atmosphere. Being in a strip plaza, I would never have guessed it would be so nice and serve such great food but we went there because we had been given a gift card. It is not so fancy that you can't bring the kids but nice enough that you could definitely go for Date Night. Really glad we tried it and we will be going back again!

The bartender was friendly & welcoming. Glass of sparkling wine for first timers! Staff in dining room was efficient & pleasant, letting us take our time. Shrimp & grits was just okay but fried oysters were very good & plentiful. Just a notch above pub fare. Would try another place when back in the area.

We had a good dining experience although they never received the open table reservation. We were seated without it. Your review should begin with a rating of whether the reservation was acknowledged. I have not downloaded your app because this was my first attempt at using open table. Randy Harling

Made Mother's Day reservations and was extremely disappointed to find out that my party could not be seated for at least 30 minutes. What's the purpose of making reservations, and arriving on time if the establishment is going to over book like an airline carrier? Needless to say, we decided not to wait and took our business to another establishment. You can't give away reserved tables to walk up customers. Just don't take reservations.

We made reservations for a Mothers' Day luncheon and arrived on time only to find even with reservations, we would have an hour or more wait. There were at least 10 other families waiting with reservations as well. We cancelled our reservation with great disappointment.

Had Mother's Day brunch. The food was good and the watress was very attentive. The atmosphere was nice even as busy as it was. I give our watress 5 stars, but have to deduct 2 stars from service because we arrived 5 minutes before our reservation and still had to wait 45 minutes past our reservation to be seated. Not sure the point in reservations if you still have to wait.

Good food for sure! The main issue is that we made reservations and were seated 30 minutes later. When we arrived, the hostess had names down on a wait list and we were put on this list even though we had reservations. C'mon now! We should have been seated in five minutes but had to wait. Additionally, many tables were open and the staff did not have a good understanding of what tables were available.

It was okay. They forgot to add cheese to omelet and only offered to bring side of cheese, not the same. Server was not around much even though restaurant was slow. Took a long timw to get check and hostess finally came over to take credit card. Guessing downtown is a better experience. Good enough wouldn't go back though.

Toast is a truly exceptional restaurant! They have excellent food, an amazing staff, and a very clean - warm - inviting - family setting. You won't find anything commercialized about this place... they take pride in being a South Carolina gem!

Unfortunately, the dining experience during Easter Brunch wasn't great at all. For the price paid, they had minimal items and the quality was sub par. We left with food on the plates and feeling a bit underwhelmed. The server was attentive and tried to make it a nice experience although did notice him walking around...picking up the signed bills at other tables and scanning to see what kind of tip people left as soon as they were gone from the table. The location and size of this restaurant isn't conducive for serving an Easter brunch and the quality of food not what you'd expect from Toast.

We have been here a few times, each with less than great service and food. Yesterday was the last. We arrived and the waiter had no idea what he was doing, acted as if he was high or drunk.
sat us, brought coffee, took all orders and forgot one of us, brought food, no flatware. I had ordered pancakes, they brought one, said the other was coming. They brought the other on another plate and asked if I would "flop" it ontop of my first one. (kinda funny).
we ate, and honestly the food was just fine. The waiter kept wandering around, and others as well. really chaos. We finally went behind the counter and got our own flatware so we could eat.
After eating we sat, waiting on our check, and waiting, and waiting.. we saw the lobby was full of customers waiting for a seat. They could clearly see that most of the restaurant was simply waiting on a check, they were not happy.
About then our waiter slammed into a waitress, spilling hot coffee on a young lady. a total mess.
We never did get our check. We decided to simply go to the counter and pay. The guy didn't seem to think anything was wrong, offered no compensation, or an apology at all.

fyi, the owner might want to consider random drug tests.

We've been to the one downtown, its nothing like this one.

When a patron has reservations and they arrive prior to a call, don't take the call and then seat them. The waiters could be a bit more enthusiastic. The pork chops were burnt, the fried tomatoes were the bomb! I may give this restaurant another try, prices are not over the top.

This is our second visit and we were overall pleased with this experience. The waiter was new to the job and a little inexperienced but he was pleasant and sufficient. My wife had the fried flounder in which she absolutely enjoyed with the exception of coleslaw. She stated it was horrible and just simply left it. My friend and I both had the steak and found it acceptable except they were out of A-1 sauce. I felt someone should have taking the initiative and ran to a local store and made a purchase to accommodate their dinner guests. The deserts were amazing!!! We will be back ..
