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!

Great place to eat, went on Sunday and they have half price bottles of wine, 4 dollar tacos and great blackened seafood chowder. We were waited on quickly and got a great table by the tv so we could watch the Masters. Food was good and so was the service. Would go again for sure

Best SHE crab soup of the weekend, very friendly and patient waiter with our party of five. Bustling atmosphere, good food, wine for a decent price.

Just turning off of John Street or Hudson street and walking down this Rue is an experience! The food was wonderful and the bartender made the best Old Fashioned for me. The best place for seafood or any food. I had a dietary request and they accommodated me with the best meal I've had. Coast has great decor and location... More

I don't know what took us so long to get to this super restaurant, but better than late than never. Our dinner out with friends was a lot of fun, with good drinks and tasty food. Coast is tucked back of a small alley-like lane next to another sister restaurant, Rue de Jean. It is also within a half block... More

Their seafood menu was awesome. For a person who is not particularly fond of this main course fair, I may have restored faith as I could not have gotten enough. From the oyster appetizer, to sampling my husband's fish and my plate of scallops it was all incredible. I would eat every meal here for the rest of my life.... More

Went to the Coast Bar and Grill in downtown Charleston for my wife's birthday with 3 other couples. The menu on the computer website did not match the menu that day (which as good, the grouper was not in season yet and golden tile fish was on the menu) When I ordered the golden tilefish, I was told that the...

Loved the food and atmosphere! The wood grilled seafood was excellent (as was everything). Aside from the unfriendly 2 girls at hostess stand the staff was delightful! We did not have reservations and had to hang in the bar area for a bit, and the busy waitstaff and bartender were all super friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go back!!!!
