Been wanting to try this place for sometime for their ceviche. They offer 4 varieties of ceviche so go with the sampler. The Sunday I dined, they were out of the octopus ceviche. More reason to go back and try it along with another mojito! You must try one of their award winning mojitos too. It's really refreshing. The red... More

My mom and I come to Charleston as an annual mother daughter trip. We had been disappointed up until now with the food in Charleston, not that we were having bad food just not super satisfying. We were recommended to come here from our hotel concierge and my goodness it did not disappoint! The service was excellent!! Ask for Tanner... More

If your in Charleston you need to try Coast. Food and service very good. A little on the pricey side but worth it.

I ran into a respectable looking gentleman walking down the street and asked if he lived in Charleston and if he could recommend a place to eat. This was after I had rejected a restaurant the front desk person directed me to after I saw it was rather touristy and loud and had more of a pub-like atmosphere. I took... More

Atmosphere was very trendy and cool -- old warehouse converted to restaurant. Service was great, and the food was as close to perfect as we've ever had in Charleston. We started with the salt & pepper calamari, which was fresh and tender, and gone in two seconds!! The teenagers had fried flounder filets, Dad had grilled swordfish over jalapeño cornbread... More

Stopped for a drink before our reservations elsewhere. We sat at the bar. My husband decided to order the fish tacos. Delicious. Great service and FAST!

Stopped for dinner without a reservation, on a very warm July evening. To sit inside, there was an hour wait, but to sit outside, (which we chose) we were seated right away! The outside area has several tables and has ceiling fans. Our server Steven, was friendly and attentive. We started with a very tasty white sangria. We ordered the... More

Excellent food, service and attention from the hostess. Because we ate there during our last visit to Charleston, we expected the wait to be long. Again it was worthwhile. We received prompt but not pushy service at all. My wife is a dessert hound and we enjoyed the food.

The atmosphere in Coast Bar & Grill is charming to say the least. Back an adorable ally way, the entrance was the best part of this experience. The restaurants decor is costal themed (who'd have thought)... But the food left us wondering why we hadn't chosen another restaurant for our first evening in Charleston. My husband and I ordered fish... 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!
