Now to be fair the restaurant is going through some crowding issues due to limited seating. Apparently the roof collapsed in the main seating area limiting the restaurant to just the bar area. That being said, we attended this location before a show at the...More

Atmosphere and food were great. Visited while under renovations so your seated at the community table, patio or bar. Only complaint was the air flow in the building but they were under renovation when we stopped in, nonetheless the meal and service were excellent.

Grossly overpriced, mediocre food. Sadly unrepresentative of Charleston food culture. Where to start? With the cold and pedestrian bread offered as a sign of coming attractions? How about with the whole boiled potato “included” in the parmesan mashed potatoes that accompanied the entree? Was this...More

Great food, great service, atmosphere and reasonably priced. We loved the shrimp ceviche sampler and the crab and avocado ravioli appetizers. Excellent drinks. Would go back.

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!
