As everyone knows, the restaurant scene in Charleston is amazing and the choices are endless. Unfortunately, we made a bad choice with this restaurant. I was with my mom and sister for my 50th birthday celebration and, based on the reviews, thought this would be a fun place. Boy, was I wrong! The server was "out to lunch" - some... More

Not enough words to describe how great this place is. Charleston has so many great restaurants to choose from but if you want fabulous seafood in a great venue, where a lot of the locals go, then look no further. Oysters, amazing, mussels, the same. I had the tuna and my boyfriend, the swordfish. I can't say which was better... More

Upon entering the hostess ask for our cell phone number to text when our table was available. She said the wait was around 45-60 minutes. We decided to walk around town for 30 minutes, then return to be ready for our table. When we returned (27 minutes later), we realized we received a text that our table was ready 6... More

Very friendly waitresses that deliver efficient service. Although the restaurant was almost full, we received our food very quickly - within 15 minutes of placing our orders. The quality of the fish dishes were excellent - I had the Shrimp-in-Grits. The atmosphere in the restuarant I think will appeal to both young and old - saw people in their 20's... More

It did seem interesting at first. But I got the feeling that this was just a tourist trap kinda restaurant. The food and service was average. We had 2 nights in town and we always want to have great food experiences and this was not that inspiring. It's a decent place, seemed to have a nice bar and the food... More

Good Friday we arrived in Charleston, SC and tried to get dinner reservations. They said they were booked, however, if we got there at 5:00 PM and had a drink at the bar there might be a seat at a community table or on the patio. Great sangria and great bar tender who gave us other restaurants to try. We... More

Cute location in a little alley. Got grouper and shrimp, along with a great veggie plate. Very fresh and good.

We reserved a table in advance since last year, when we arrived in town for Easter weekend, we learned most restaurants around our hotel had 2 hour waits. We were seated on time, our server was pleasant and friendly, the atmosphere was relaxed, and the table settings and restaurant were very clean. We started with the ceviche sampler, shrimp cocktail,... More

Just ate here tonight. Heard how much of a food scene Charleston was and we picked the wrong place! The French restaurant next door might be better. Drinks were ok. We arrived for our reservation at 9:30 a bit early, even though there were multiple tables open, they wouldn't seat us until our time. Then when we were seated and... More

Description
Established in 2002, and housed in what was originally an indigo warehouse, this Charleston fish house redefines "fresh" from the menu to the decor. COAST features 40-ft ceilings, rustic tin roofs, and paintings from around the world, creating an atmosphere reminiscent of an eclectic beach bar. Enjoy a Peach Blanco Sangria outside on the patio, or a delicious bottle of wine in the spacious bar lined with preserved palm trees. COAST's chefs meet daily with local farmers and fishermen to procure the freshest seafood and produce in the Lowcountry. At the heart of the restaurant is the hickory and oak custom made wood burning grill, a feature you will only find at COAST. The menu incorporates Charleston Classics with our chefs' unique creations. Local favorites include the selection of wood-grilled fresh fish, Seared Rare Tuna, Fish Tacos and the full raw bar. Additional original plates are offered nightly to take full advantage of our city's bountiful local ingredients. A great deal of time and attention goes into compiling a wine selection to match the flavor of our wines to the dynamics of COAST's dishes. The wine list features organic and biodynamic producers. COAST makes every effort to support up-and-coming global wine makers, while simultaneously finding only the highest quality products!
