    Hostess was rude, told us “reservations only” I think to deter us from dining there. There were plenty of reservations open. Very limited menu. Food was ok, not worth the $. Views were beautiful though.

    Was great. Obviously a seafood place, but would be nice to have a few more non-seafood options on the menu for larger groups who may have a person or two with different tastes. Overall though, great spot, and view can't be beat.

    Kings tide was amazing. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery, quiet tables and outside seating and the impeccable service. The catch of the day was wonderful, the fried watermelon was fantastic and the peel and eat shrimp was great. Thank you for an amazing evening.

    We love The Kingstide! This was our second time dining here and it was just as amazing as the first. The upstairs bar was a great spot to take in incredible views of the water and have a delicious pre dinner cocktail. The food and service during dinner was wonderful. The fish is always fresh and perfectly cooked. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for the ultimate Charleston dining experience. Will be back!’

    The perfect spot to enjoy a nice lunch/dinner with terrific food & drinks while enjoying picturesque views of the Wando River. We enjoyed a stroll on the lovely path right beside the restaurant afterward. It's really the perfect spot. Love it.

    We had a wonderful dinner on the porch of The Kingstide last evening. The service was very good, even though the restaurant was crowded. The menu is more limited in selections than I expected but the food was excellent.

    It took one hour and forty minutes to get our food . Salad came quick and was delicious….. then the waiting game began . We were the first ones seated when they opened @ 5:00 , so let’s not say we were there when they were slammed . When I let them know I was a little annoyed… I got the cold shoulder treatment from our waitress . In fact, never saw her again . Another person finished us out . No reason to go back with so many great choices around .

    The service was excellent downstairs but we weren’t as thrilled with our food. I had a seasonal vegetables plate which looked amazing with a giant plate of roasted vegetables but when I took a bite it had some sort of very hot sauce on that part of the dish..my mouth burned for the rest of the meal! 2 got the steak but wished it was more about a bigger portion rather than trying to be fancy. You can’t beat the view however so next time we’ll probably opt for upstairs

    Beautiful setting, very nice building and great service. I thought the food was overpriced and not that great. I don’t mind paying for a location and excellent service which this place had but it’s like the food was an afterthought. I had the fish special which was Mahi, $36 for a small piece of fish in a bunch of soup that overpowered the flavor. My wife had a kale salad that she just got tired of chewing. It was chewy lol. The hush puppies were good and the drink we had, Apropos, was great. Maybe next time I’ll go to the rooftop and have hush puppies and drinks.

    The ambiance is great! However, the appetizer fish sliders were not good and appeared processed instead of fresh. The hush puppies were thick and doughy and not up to standard. The entree mahi mahi was good but paired with a green sauce that was just ok. It was a small serving size for the price point. The highlight was our server, the ambiance and the carrot cake!

    The clam chowder was excellent as were the fresh shrimp but brussel sprouts were definitely undercooked and quite crunchy even though the lardons and vinegar reduction was good. A bit disappointed in the kale salad because the kale was chewy and not tender since it was dressed in lavender vinaigrette.

    The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Atmosphere beautiful. The location superb. Our waitress was superb and other waitstaff outstanding. We arrived about 10 minutes early for a 5:45 reservation. The hostess suggested we go upstairs to the bar which we did. We were not notified when our table was ready. We waited and then had to go downstairs to ask. We had not experienced this before.

    My friend and I dined at KingsTide for my birthday and had a truly wonderful experience. We were early for our reservations and had drinks first on the upstairs deck. Beautiful view and attentive service. Dinner was delicious and service was first class. I look forward to dining there soon again. DebAnne Macaluso

    We were initially sat inside, which was not what we anticipated, but they were accommodating and we just waited one drink until they were ready to move to an outdoor table. The food and service were great, couple hiccups but they were taken care of attitude wise, and things got smooth throughout the course and they gave a complimentary dessert dessert from the turbulence turbulence earlier in the meal experience.
