Very friendly place to grab a nice leisurely lunch. Service was good, the outside seating is sheltered from the hot sunshine and the food was quite good. This place probably gets super busy for the dinner hour, so make reservations. It's tucked off a main...More

We ate here for dinner. The shrimp and grits were very good. The restaurant has very limited seating right now due to having roof repairs. The service was quick and the food very good.

Small place but food was good. My daughter and I got the salmon and loved it. Son-in-law got seafood pasta which was also good. Needs a little housekeeping. Lampshades at bar were dusty. But service and food were both good.

My daughter and I had a delightful evening at Coast. The fish tacos and grilled salmon were both delicious! We ate at the bar and Stephen, the bartender, not only provided excellent service but made the evening most enjoyable.

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!
