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!

Second time visiting this restaurant. Had the escolar from the wood fire grill. Excellent. Boyfriend had shrimp and grits. Amazing. Sangria was really good. Crab dip was addictive. Cool lofty atmosphere. Kind of noisy but not horrible. Outdoor seating was available and bar was hopping. Waitress was great. Make reservations. But seriously. I highly recommend this place. Food is fantastic.

One of my favorite restaurants in Charleston. Great local caught fresh seafood, and also a great selection of steaks!

It wasn't awful, but for the price we were expecting a lot better. No one at our table was thrilled with their dishes, which was surprising as we had heard such great things about this place. We all got seafood, and all of us noted that it tasted burned. I realize that they are using a woodfired grill... but honestly if the food tastes 'meh' I'd rather skip the hype over wood-fired and just use a skillet or something to actually make the food taste good...We much preferred FIG, Husk, and S.N.O.B. Those three were in a different class than Coast.

We had a group of six, all making specific requests not exactly on the menu. The waitress did a superb job. Fish and seafood were outstanding. Two had different forms of grouper, one had salmon, one had tuna, one had shrimp, and I do not remember the other. Everyone raved about their entrees. The chef mixes the entrees with interesting vegetables. Portions were large. Two individuals had desserts, both Key Lime pie. They said it was excellent. The only, minor criticism is they have only one form of bread (they serve it in a half loaf) and they serve it cold. Warm bread would add to the meal as well. We all will definitely go back (and all are locals). It is a good-sized restaurant with a big bar area for those so inclined.

Seafood was OK...I think, had I done more research, we could get much better seafood somewhere else....Was nothing special...I wouldn't go back or recommend coming here.
