Coast is a go-to place for locals and tourists alike. On weekends it's very busy but manageable. I consistently have great food with wine here. Recommended at the highest level if you want seafood. The decor is all nautical and quite beautiful. Only downside is some of the locals are drunk socialites which tend to be overbearing.

So the location and atmosphere are great...as was the service. The experience was different for each of us when it came to the food. We shared crab dip...I thought it was fine, crab was fresh...my husband did not like it...either way, it was a very large portion for an appetizer. The server recommended the Adobe shrimp - it was great.... More

My wife and I recently had dinner here for the first time in a very long time. The cocktails were very good, the service very good, and the grilled tilapia and shrimp were excellent. Well worth a visit. Parking deck located directly across the alley.

Went with my love for a late night dinner and couldn't be more surprised. Fun atmosphere, friendly waitstaff, and awesome food. Blackened seafood chowder was the best chowder I've ever had. Hugs dinner portions. Grilled snapper was fantastic. Will always come back here when visiting Charlestown.

2nd Time here.and pretty disappointed. We arrived a little after 9:00 and were literally seated in the farback corner by the outside door and wait station behind a huge column. Party of six adults + we were tightly packed. Should have asked for one of the many open tables, but didn't. At first service was good, but then went downhill.... More

We were staying at the Hampton Inn right around the corner....the concierge recommended this establishment. We headed out early on a Friday night and got seated immediately. It was totally filled within 20 mins. - I had a draft beer and my wife had a soft drink. We ordered at the time the drinks were delivered. I had their shrimp... More

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!
