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!

Tried something new

Went here on a solo trip last night. Was able to sit at the bar with the full menu. Enjoyed two appetizers and a soda. Good food, great service and nice atmosphere. If you're going with a large party you'll need a reservation or be prepared to wait for a table. Worth it though.

We were not that impressed. Seemed like a chain restaurant in both atmosphere and food. The service though was friendly.

We enjoyed a fabulous meal here last week for our anniversary. The service was great and the staff were very personable and professional. The food was fantastic! Highly recommend the tuna, brussel sprouts and the chefs special of the day. The chef also accommodated my food allergies which was an extra plus! The restaurant is very relaxing - you can... More

We come here whenever we're in town for a seafood dinner. Open kitchen, big space, lots of local options. The kids had shrimps from the kids menu, we shared an awesome fish taco, and had the paella and shrimp and grits, both savory and worth every penny. Only down side was the relatively long wait for the food-even the kids... More

Great selection of food. Loved the complimentary fresh bread and butter. I had the Blue Crab and Shrimp Manicotti....delicious!! Reasonable price for (obviously) fresh seafood. Great ambiance as well!

We ate here for dinner on a Friday night and did not have to wait long for a seat. The service was excellent here. Their different flavors of mojitos were deliciousness and unique. We started with the bacon wrapped scallops, which were melt in your mouth delicious. My son ordered the blackened flatiron steak, which was cooked to order, very... More

Coast Bar and Grill in downtown Charleston is a fabulous seafood restaurant. Outstanding delicious entrees that are tops in the Holy City. Highly recommend trying some of the many variations of preparing fresh seafood. Friendly wait staff in a nice setting.

While vacationing in Charleston we samples a few restaurants near our hotel and found this one had fantastic seafood. The calamari appetizer is the best I have had. Next time there I may order a few for dinner. The wait staff made great suggestions and answered our questions honestly. We hate spicy food. My broiled seafood was melt in your... More
