We both had the snapper. The fish and sauce had great texture and were tasty. Service was good although there was a small problem with the bill (had two extra dinners on it that were not ours). Our waitress changed it quickly.

We all went to this restaurant on 6/30. The restaurant had our table ready to go. That was all that was ready to go. The service in general was slow and food quality was above average. I give it an A for atmosphere and the drinks. Food as I said was OK.

We were just in Charleston for 4th of July weekend, so everything was packed of course. But we definitely wanted to hit up an upscale seafood joint. Hank's (top rated everywhere) was insane! So we decided to go over to this place called Fish. We walked right in and were seated immediately by the owner, who was incredibly friendly and... More

We stopped here when travels took us through the area. The name suggested it was a seafood establishment but the Brunch menu included very little in terms of seafood surprisingly. The food was good, portions slightly small for the prices. The ambiance and food presentation were the best parts. Service was fine.

The hostess took our name and phone number for a 10minute Wait but failed to call us even after sitting people without reservations. After asking about it she forgot even though we sat 3 feet from her at the bar. All we got was a I'm sorry with no sitting. We frequent Charleston 2 to 4 times a month for... More

My sister and I stopped into Fish for happy hour while we were waiting for the rest of our family to arrive for the weekend. It was an unexpected treat! Great live music, personable bartenders and delicious tapas. Definitely exceeded our expectations all around! Well done, Fish.

A great upscale fish restaurant. It is not big place but an established restaurant on King Street that has been there a while when some come and go. The seafood is fresh and served with a twist. The service is good, the menu is good, and the atmosphere is good. I recommend - but not on a budget. And, don't... More

We had dinner here during a recent visit to Charleston. Both food and service were very good---the fish was obviously quite fresh, and the preparations were interesting and creative. The only downside was the music (loud rock), but that may be a generational thing.

We were very pleased with our dinners here tonight after a concert. We found the decor to be charming and nautical in a very sophisticated way. Hostess was very accommodating as we were early for our reservation due to an early concert finale & the pouring rain! Sun & Mon 1/2 price bottled wine nice surprise. Had special "naked fish"...
