Centrally located on Coleman Blvd with private parking, our complete renovation of a historic landmark in Mt. Pleasant offers an inviting and relaxing atmosphere. Come relax with your friends on our outside patio with sectional sofa and fire pit, enjoy views of the Ravenel bridge and our grand oaks, while listening to our great Spotify music playlists. The food is outstanding, featuring seafood and steak creations that will simply amaze you, such as the Seafood Platter, with lobster, crab, scallops and shrimp. Our cocktails are simple, yet elegant. We put a great deal of care into their ingredients, from a choice of spirits, the squeezing of juices, the recipes for our mixers or the ice that goes in the glass.

Enjoyed the fried oyster appetizer and the hush puppies. We were disappointed with our cocktails as well as the entrees - shrimp and grits and flounder. The receptionist/hostess didn't create a positive first impression and needs to be trained to be friendly and charming. Thought prices were high given the quality.

Topsail's preparation and presentation of food rivals those of the renowned downtown Charleston restaurants at a slightly lower price point. And it has free parking! I loved the scallops over collard greens with a side of gruyere grits. Everything was perfectly prepared. I must call out the excellent service -- friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and cocktails, and highly attentive to his many tables. Kudos to Topsail for providing fine dining in Mount Pleasant!

Good food, great atmosphere…. For an impromptu reservation this restaurant gets 5 stars. We live up north so all southern food is rich and served with a side of butter but it was delicious.

We made reservations for a Friday evening at Topsail and experienced excellent service and EXQUISITE plates - charming food presentations with rich aromas that were equally as delicious as they looked!

We began with a Scallop Appetizer that Chef was featuring as a special that night - and WOW - the delicate balance with mouthwatering flavor. The green beans and demi-glace…divine! An appropriate serving size to tame hunger without killing our appetite. I want to be on the *notify me* list when they serve this special again!

There is nothing else in Mount Pleasant compared to the quality of food Topsail serves - I am always in the mood for a fresh, delicious meal from here.

Topsail is a great restaurant! Elegant, romantic atmosphere and the staff is really friendly. They know what they're talking about, provide fast service, and you can tell making the customers happy is their top priority. I was able to reserve a party of 6 for the same night via OpenTable - even though it was rainy outside, we stayed warm and dry dining in their patio section! Fantastic food - I'm already craving it again, writing about it. I highly encourage anyone who wants fresh, delicious seafood to dine here!

Our waiter, Joe was awesome! He was accommodating to our kids and very attentive. The food was absolutely amazing! We had mussels in this delicious lobster cream sauce, the whole branzini, and the mahi mahi. They were all specials on the menu and they did not disappoint. It was a cool little beach vibe with some upscale touches. Very clean bathrooms with a candle in it. I look forward to going back!

We sat outside, which was on a very busy thoroughfare - traffic noise was pretty high for the first 45 minutes or so. Interior seating, which we passed through coming and going, was very full was also pretty noisy. The food was good for the price.

Wonderful dinner. We were on a very specific elimination diet, and our server enthusiastically identified dishes that might work and carefully noted modifications. Food was delicious. Service was incredible. Only negative was that the patio faces the front street and the noise is moderate. We would return for sure.

Very disappointing! Service, location and parking were great. Food was not worth the value. Caesar salad was served with brown pieces of romaine and they don't have anchovies, but mix them into the dressing??? Whole snapper had very strong fish smell when it came to table and it tasted bad. Texture was mushy and flavors were not appealing. She crab soup was very thick and bland, lacked flavor and while the calamari was good, it was only served with rings and no tentacles. Probably won't be back, too many other great restaurants in the area.

Nov. 11, 2021- This is a very nice neighborhood find in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. I had the flounder stuffed with crabmeat, and it was delicious. Entrees are a bit pricey, but worth it. The service was excellent. They have a very nice wine list, as well.

Our waiter was overly animated and talked far too much. He told us that he wasn't adding the gratuity to our bill automatically, but that he just knew we would take good care of him. He told us that more than once. When one of our party asked for another drink, he asked him to add "the magic word." Our party was very polite to the waiter, but he was over the top. At the end of dinner--after the dishes were cleared away, he brought out a whole fish of the day and told us, "This is on me!" We were stuffed, and we were not interested in the fish. We felt badly for just leaving it sitting there, but as I said, we had just finished a huge meal. We had already ordered dessert, but once he brought the fish, he brought our checks and forgot to bring dessert. We asked about dessert, and he told us it was "on me." Rightfully so, I guess, since he forgot. Dinner was good, but it would have been better with a quieter, less invasive waiter.
