First night in Charleston and Coast did not disappoint. The Brussels sprouts were simply amazing, the fish tacos were perfect and the garlic mashed potatoes were scrumptious. The atmosphere is gorgeous and the wait staff were perfect. Go! You won't be disappointed.

In town for a work convention, Coast was the perfect place to unwind in the evening starting in the lounge bar where the bartenders were on point!! Great conversations with locals and bartenders showed excellent hospitality. Food was delicious and ambiance was relaxing and fun!

Coast is one of the coolest fish houses in Charleston....historical building, down an interesting alley of restaurants off John and King streets. Very funky place with great wait staff. Reservations are a must. I enjoyed the raw sampler with my husband. It was great. I had the grilled grouper and my husband had the fried triple plate. Oysters. Shrimp and... More

Very busy seafood restaurant. We ordered the seafood sampler to start. Shrimp, clams, oysters, and lump crabmeat. Very generous portion and quality seafood. Next my wife ordered grouper and I had the fried seafood platter, shrimp, oysters, and talapia. Everything was top shelf. Service was good and the prices were reasonable. Be sure to make a reservation.

For our last night in Charleston we looked for a seafood restaurant and chose the Coast. It was worth it. Coast is situated in bottom of an alley behind another restaurant, so don't hesitate to ask the locals, if you cannot find it (we could not). The place was filled with locals and the informal atmosphere is unique. I had... More

We were impressed with the food at Coast. We thought there would be a wait but, we were able to get right in. The pasta dishes are the best thing on the menu. Service was impeccable.

Very good food with a really fun atmosphere. Good service and a good menu selection of sea food. I had some of the best oysters and house specialty scallops I've eaten on this trip to Charleston. Highly recommend going.

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!
