Enjoyable evening and a great waiter, Patrick. He did great in spite of the fact that he had too many tables. The management would do better to hire more servers. Meals were very good but the two appetizers ordered left a lot to be desired. The view is one of the best in Charleston and the restaurant is new and spacious.

Appetizers:
Two at our table ordered the clam appetizers and two ordered the She Crab Soup. None of them were very happy with their selection. I tasted the soup and it was very fishy. Crab soup is one of my favorites and this is one of the worst I have eaten.

Entrees:
Dinners were delicious. I had the roasted scallops and they were superb. The hopping john risotto was excellent and I also got a side of the cabbage. Very different preparation, but it was excellent as well. My husband had the swordfish and thoroughly enjoyed it. Others had fried and grilled shrimp and scallops and all loved their dishes. The only complaint was from one of the guys who ordered the fried flounder. It came to him very overdone and we all agreed. He sent it back. They were as quick as they could have been in bringing him another flounder. The second one was better, but was still more done than our friend preferred.

Even though we were not completely satisfied this restaurant has a lot going for it. We will just not order the clams, soup, or flounder again.

You can't top the location or the view....All tables have a view of the sunset over downtown Charleston and the Yorktown. The food is very good, although the service was a little slow. But it was a busy Friday night!

Best view of any restaurant in Charleston area. Food quality, temperature, and presentation was excellent. Good value for the price. Service was impeccable. And the manager stopped by to make sure everything was wonderful. We will definitely return.

My husband and I were super excited to dine here... Both of us are in the food and beverage industry. We started out by having a drink at the bar... Our bartender, Haley, was awesome and more than helpful. She kept us laughing and gave us great advice as far as the menu go. We are local and wish we would have had her as our server... Unfortunately we our server misty way too talkative about her personal life... (I'm here to dine, not be a psychiatrist) We also happened to witness to witness two tables flat out yelling at a manager which was very unsettling....the moral is... Dine at the bar and ask for Haley ... Never again will we sit at a table!
