We had another great meal here two nights ago. The grilled grouper came with bacon,cheese grits and spinach and it was amazing! My husband loves the wreck fish with the most amazing smashed potatoes we ever had! There are so many good things on the menu and even if you don't like seafood, you will have a great meal. The...

Close to the hotel, so we went there for dinner. Nice seafood restaurant in an interesting old warehouse. We shared all the courses. Ceviche, crab soup, calamari, and seared tuna. The ceviche and the tuna were the highlights. Fairly expensive, but worth it,.

This is our go to place when we just want to have great food and a wonderful atmosphere. We typically eat at the bar but on special occasions we get a table. Favorite place.

Had a great dinner on a rainy night in early July, 2016. Glad that we stopped in to get a reservation! The food and service were excellent! The meal was elegantly presented and the atmosphere was on-point...not loud and obnoxious, but spirited and vivacious.

We live in Charleston, but like a majority of Charlestonians, we only get downtown on occasion, life being what it is. This year, we decided to make more deliberate efforts to engage in our gorgeous downtown more often. That decision led to monthly concerts at Charleston Music Hall, deliberate museum visits, and sometimes just a stroll through the lower peninsula.... More

Overall great dining experience with a good beer selection. Menu might be a little overwhelming at first but since we were in Charleston, had to go with seafood! Had the braised grouper and it was freaking awesome. Others in attendance had swordfish and wreakfish, both raved over their dishes as well. Highly recommended for a causal experience.

very good full service restaurant next to the Hampton Inn. Seafood salad was superb, mussels as well; my sliced steak on nite one was a little tough...but other than that, not much negative to say here. A fun place !

So I'm not here to be a tourist. I am here on business and was looking for a location that was within walking distance to the Embassy Suites. I just had the best mahi mahi fish tacos! I had great service at the bar. The bartenders were attentive and very efficient. I sat at the bar alone so I didn't... More

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!
