“Very good dining experience......”
Reviewed 8 December 2013 via mobile

While visiting my son over Thanksgiving, I took my family to the Tidewater Grill for an early Saturday evening dinner aftere an aft noon of shopping. Normally I avoid restaurants in malls (except for a quick sandwich or snack) but was told that we would enjoy the food.
We enjoyed our dining experience very much. We shared a nice Calamari appetizer which was good. My wife and son both had the grilled Carolina trout with some vegetables and a salad. I had the coconut shrimp with a tasty pineapple-apricot salsa with a salad.
Everything was prepared nicely and was very good. The server staff was attentive and took good care of us. Nothing particularly noteworthy of the restaurant appearance other than clean and seemed to be well maintained. I think that the prices for the menu items were very reasonable so good value for the money.
I would recommend the Tidewater Grill to folks shopping for the day at the mall or even staying next door in the hotel.

“Terrible Service”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

My adult daughter and I arrived at lunch time on a Saturday. The restaurant was almost half full. We were seated right away and ice water was placed on our table. That was the last contact we had from any of the employees. Two servers in our area finished serving others, bussed tables, and succefully ignored us for ten minutes, at which point we gave up and left. I hope the food is better than the service, but we wouldn't know.

“Tide turns at the Tidewater”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 via mobile

Nice ambience, the food was a mixed review from fair to good. Fish sandwich was over cooked and dry. The coleslaw side was good. Spunich dip was a sensation. Calamari was average. Pumpkin cheesecake was well liked.

“Still a great restaurant”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

We eat at Tidewater whenever we go to Charleston. This time I had the chef's special, Mahi Mahi Rockefeller. It was delicious! Blackened mahi topped with a cream spinach sauce and crab meat. We had shrimp cocktail for appetizer and the shrimp was great! My husband had his favorite the shrimp and scallops and our friend had the crab cakes. All were very good, as was the service. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Tidewater Grill is a local favorite. The food is consistently good. We eat there often and it is always a good experience. A typical destination when guests come to town.
