Wife and I wanted to try Coast while in Charleston for our anniversary. After walking ten blocks and finding the restaurant we were informed that we needed reservations. Guess we should of called ahead first. But even without reservations we could sit at the community table or the bar, and we choose the bar. This was a great decision because... More

Service was good, crab cakes were the best I have had. The manicotti was ok. I'm not certain I would recommend that dish. Overall, good experience, would go back again getting something different as my main dish.

Our family enjoyed everything we ordered. I had the grilled salmon and I think it's the best salmon I've ever had. The Parmesan mashed potatoes and peach mojito were excellent as well. The service was great and we loved the ambience of the restaurant. We will definitely return.

We had a 5:30 reservation on Mother's Day. We were seated promptly. Missy was our server and could not have been more attentive. She agreed with our wine selection (1/2 price bottles on Sunday nights), suggested two appetizers (cerviche (all 4) and Oysters Rockerfeller, both which were amazing. My husband had Mahi Mahi, our daughter (who is also a server... More

Arrived at the bar, 3 bartenders, and NONE acknowledged my date and I. I know they saw the both of us, never had a bartender not greet me.

The best part of the restaurant is the decor-- lots of water related imagery I. A darkly lit space. The draft beer selection is another plus. We all enjoyed fairly plain seafood dishes that tastes neither outstanding nor awful. Husband added salmon to his Caesar and remarked it was a very generous portion. Daughter had crab crusted tilapia with mashed... More

The waiter was delightful, the seafood fresh and well-prepared, just a great place! We were in the mood for seafood, and, after examining the menu online, we thought Coast was the place! We were not disappointed! The menu is packed with amazing-sounding seafood and other choices, and it took us a while to decide. We ended up with three appetizers,... 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!
