Excellent food. We went several times during our trip. The crab soup .... oh my best I ever had. Does not matter what you order here .... their food is excellent. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Salads ..... ARE AMAZING.
This restaurant is a great place. The views are great. It was raining when we were there but we still enjoyed looking out at the boats. I had the seafood pasta, so good. My family ordered steak, seafood platter, children’s hamburger. Everyone was happy with...their meal. Our server was excellent.More
Sitting in the resturant right now. This is the loudest most obnoxious place I have ever been. The music is so loud I have to yell to speak with my company (and have asked that the music be turned down some), not to mention we...are right beside the kitchen door with plates banging around (and there is no door). There is no such thing as social distancing as the tables are not 6 feet apart and in the waiting area there are people on top of each other, to the point that is is difficult to pass. Women are exiting the men's rest room with their men in tow. The managers and staff are working quickly, but it detracts from the ambiance they are trying to achieve. All in all the food is pretty good, but the atmosphere leaves plenty to be desired. The best way to describe California Dreaming is disorienting, confusing, and sensory overload but in a negative way! Also, there is a dog in the resturant (not identified as a working dog)More
If you don't want to wait for a table, eat at the bar like I did. The food was excellent, the service was spot on and there was no wait. The food is always excellent here and I am never disappointed. Relax and enjoy you...night out.More
We always visit when my husband has Dr appt at MUSC but after this trip we will not be going back!! Walked in the hostess was rude! She sat us in a booth by bar which was fine. We sat there for over 25 minutes...and no one ever came to us!! No one at all! No drinks nothing! Several employees walked by and nothing! We got up and left. I done a complaint with California dreaming and never got a call back!More
Peel and eat shrimp was some of the hardest, not tender shrimp we've ever had.
One of our loaded baked potatoes was cold, and they weren't loaded with butter or sour cream
Restaurant was freezing cold
Worst meal we've had in a week being in...Charleston
Won't be backMore
We both salad tonight my came with some sliced sirloin steak, blue cheese lots of bacon bits, and hot fresh roll with honey on top. My wife got She Crab soup and a smaller salad. The soup was very good as was her salad. It's...just a nice general place to have dinner. Was really busy Sat and still busy on Sunday. We walked away Sat not waiting for 1.5 hrs it good not that good. Had a reservation on Sunday got in. Charleston is going strong even with COVID.More
While I have no complaints at all about the food and drinks, my wife and I were disappointed to see couples brought in and seated at booths on either side of ours in the bar area. No booths were left empty as a concession to...the Covid-19 pandemic, and there were no barriers between booths.
Which meant the back of the next patron's head was approximately 18 inches from the back of yours as you ate. With absolutely nothing in between.More

Hello Fellow traveler:
We did not have reservations, but we were there on a Tuesday nite. This is a great restaurant and I woud probably get reservations if you are going to be in Charleston for the weekend.
