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!

Off the HOOK!
Don't even consider any other seafood restaurant. Every appy and entree was fresh and beyond delicious. NYC foodies, do not pass GO. This is the place.

Best Vegetarian Dinner I have ever had! Dinner companions had seafood and many returned for a second night. Prices okay. Service good.

“Not somewhere I will return to.”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

okay, my husband rarely complains about the places we go, but was not happy with the service and after ordering one of the pricier seafood meals on the menu was up until 1am sick after eating here. Our server appeared to be serving, tending bar and cleaning tables. At first, we were trying to be understanding about the lack of service, because we thought they were understaffed. Then, we noticed that he spent a lot of time behind the bar watching the football game on TV. There are too many great places to eat in Charleston for this to ever be an option for us again.

“Great place!”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Coast was located next to our hotel so we stopped in for a few drinks. Located down a very cute alley way. Very inviting, awesome bartender!! Went out of his way to make sure we had what we wanted, even "created" a drink for one of my friends which she loved! Fun atmosphere. Didn't have any food but it all sounded awesome!

“A Bit Pricey, Very Good Seafood, Great Raw Oysters & Shrimp Cocktail - Service a Bit Choppy”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

We had a dozen Blue Point CT oysters, best I ever had but pricy at $22 a dozen. Server followed my instructions and brought a basket with Tabasco and crackers. We had to ask for our bread and butter. Two cups of $4 each cream based crab soup was very good too, a little light on the crab meat. I agree with another reviewer that the $27 Cashew Encrusted Grouper is outstanding. We split the entree and our portions were quite small. So, I ordered a $14 shrimp cocktail to fill up which was outstanding, best I have ever had. $8 drinks were below average. Key lime pie was very good. Server was nice and professional but busy so the service was choppy. We were given our raw oysters and 15 seconds after our entree came out. They had to refire it till we were done with our oysters. I checked the $$ for casual environment below for the atmosphere but the prices are more like $$$. It's a bit pricy but very good, overall worth it for quality of seafood dishes.
