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!

We've eaten here every summer for the past 3 years. Always good. Friendly & attentive staff. Good selection on the menu & THE BEST banana bread pudding ever.

“Good seafood at a fair price in a laid back atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Coast is tucked away down an alley. Our waitress was friendly and did not rush our table for orders. If you like a lot of flavor, you can't go wrong with the shrimp adobo over bacon cheddar grits.

“Great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

Our family of 6 went to Coast tonight. The food was delicious! Our waiter was very helpful. He was well versed in all the options and made good recommendations. We liked everything we had there.
We went at 5 but they don't actually start seating until 5:30. They serve dinner only.
The setting is down a little alley that feels away from the hustle and bustle.
If we came later at night our young kids may be a little out of place but at 5:30 their energy wasn't a big deal.
Very good food. Recommended highly.

“Mostly good, but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

A very casual restaurant with a crowded and somewhat noisy bar. The four of us all enjoyed our appetizers and salads. Cocktails were also very good. Highly recommend the oysters Rockefeller and fried green tomatoes. As for the entrees, three out of four were well prepared and tasty, including talapia and the grouper. However, a grilled mahi mahi entree was terribly undercooked. And the sides were very average. With so many excellent restaurants in Charleston, I wouldn't rush back here.

“Love It!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

Recommended by a gal at the desk at our hotel. Thank you! Delicious! Three of us. One had shrimp linguine, one had the salmon grilled and I had the appetizer of the day, heirloom tomatoes done caprese style, and the bacon wrapped scallops appetizer. Everyone said theirs was delicious. I can say mine were fabulous! Not inexpensive but not outrageous. Fun atmosphere too. Highly recommend.
