Lovely restaurant in a quaint ally right downtown. Since they are most well known for their wood fired seafood, we decided we had to try it. You choose your fish and then the sauce. It was a delicious meal! We tried the salmon with tropical...More

Great restaurant with a great view. The food was well prepared and well presented. The service was adequate, though not particularly attentive. Almost amusing that the bar tender, who served as our waiter as well, didn't seem to know how to open or present a...More

Anyone that rates Coast as having good food either had plenty of alcohol before their meal, or simply has very low standards (sometimes we are easily impressed while in vacation mode). Let add another caveat, since there are good reviews for the oysters. Wife had...More

I would definitely recommend making a reservation before you go, since it seems busy during dinner hours. The food WAS AMAZING as well as the service from start to finish! I would definitely recommend this unique dinner spot for anyone who loves seafood!

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!
