My family and I had a late dinner here that was delicious. All of our appetizers were amazing (especially the local heirloom tomato caprese that was a special and the crab dip). Our group had grouper, salmon, and crab cakes which were all delicious. Would definitely recommend!

Our first time at Coast we had good food and good service. I had the fried shrimp and it was very good. There must have been 15-18 shrimp on my plate with skinny fries and slaw. My wife had a seafood soup with salad which was good. While there are many restaurants in Charleston, you should give Coast a try.

The oysters are the best I have ever had. Try them as an appetizer. The dining is your typical seafood extravaganza, but very low key. Not very expensive and in the heart of Charleston. Ben was our server. He was extraordinary. Relaxed atmosphere. Great food and environment. No need to dress-up here. Lots of choices of food. We'll definitely return... More

Any of the wood grilled seafood choices are excellent. We had the red snapper and the grouper--so GOOD! Ceviche was delicious.

We made a mistake of not making a reservation, didn't think we needed on on a Tuesday night. I recommend one. We waited about 45 minutes in a neighboring bar and had a drink. They texted us when our table was ready. I had Spicy Adobo Shrimp with bacon grits, excellent! My daughter had shrimp ceviche and okra salad, both... More

Hadn't been to Coast in several years but friends recommended we give it another try so we did and were so,glad! Our meals were delicious, service was excellent. Menu is big but not overwhelming with a focus on seafood but other options as well. Prices were not outrageous and atmosphere was bustling but not noisy. We'll definitely be back!

You simply cannot go wrong here!!! This place offers some of the finest dining in Charleston and we have never had a bad meal here. I particularly love the calamari, rare seared tuna and incredible deserts. Make reservations as this is a popular place!

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!
