This is a must go to place. It is out f the way on a side street which makes it quiter. The staff and atmosphere were the best. But go for the food you will not be diappointed. We were in Charleston for four days this was by far the best dinner meal. I had the fire grilled halibut special... More

Three of us dined here. It was noisy and not really comfortable. The food was just okay, and we would not repeat it. The service was average.

We were told by the hotel that reservations were not needed, wrong.... 45 minute wait. Friendly, organized staff. Carrie was our server and we were never rushed. She has a great service attitude. Blackened Swordfish was cooked right, tasty and well presented. Not loud, comfortable to hear conversation at our table. Highly recommend this over Hymans (Welcome tourist!) and most... More

We have been coming to Charleston for 15+ years and always try to dine somewhere new at least once per visit. A local recommended Coast. The bartender was friendly and I enjoyed the Palmetto Mule...not too sweet. Our table server was attentive without being in a hurry which was nice because many restaurants seem to want you in and out... More

I was at this restaurant two nights in a row during a recent visit to the city. First night I ordered from the happy hour menu and I had a great experience. Second night, I order from the menu and I only had an average experience.

I will always go to Coast when I want seafood. Ever since I lived in the low country this is the place my family has always gone. Great crab cakes and shrimp and grits are on point.

The crab and avocado ravioli was great! Just the right tastes! The service was friendly! My wife ordered the Traditional Ceviche, which was pleasant. This place is off in an alley and was only suggested to us by a friend who ate there before; otherwise, this great place would not have been found. I'm glad we found it!

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with a great dinner at this restaurant. Hidden away in a little alley, Coast is charming and very reasonably priced. The staff were welcoming and the service was quick and efficient. My wife had the flatiron steak with creamed spinach and thin cut french fried potatoes and I had the grilled swordfish with... More

We had dinner here March 21...recommended by a local. Food was excellent, as was the service. Swordfish steak was done perfectly with a spicy sauce on the side. It was accompanied by roasted fingerling potatoes and brussel sprouts. The large salad with grilled chicken and lite balsamic dressing was very good, too. Not a "tourist trap" restaurant. They take reservation... More

What a nice little place to eat! It is easy to miss when looking for it. Food was wonderful, we got the Buffalo Fried Shrimp for an appetizer. My husband got the Crab Encrusted Tilapia, OMG it was delicious and that comes from someone who doesn't like fish. I tried a bite and it just melted in my mouth. We... 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!
