We sampled several dishes, including the Crudo. Everything we tried was so fresh and delicious we returned two nights later, this time we enjoyed the Ceviche and Tataki.

This place is not worth the wait. Overpriced, small portions. GM/ host was completely full of himself. Lots of other options in Charleston that don’t come with a sense of entitlement from GM and staff.More

We ate lunch here yesterday and our food was excellent - lobster roll and tuna sandwich. Pleasant, informed staff regarding the menu, prompt service. Thank you for opening up the ceiling covering to allow us to sit in the courtyard with some airflow! If you...are looking for lunch and you enjoy seafood, this is the place to go. WORTH THE WAIT.More

The 60 minute wait was 100% worth it!! For real, do NOT let the lengthy wait detour you from eating here! It is worth every dollar and every minute waiting! We had everything from Oyster Shooters to the Lobster Tostada, Tuna Tartar to the Pastrami/Swordfish...Sandwich and everything was incredible. But the Lobster Roll... let me tell you, it took everything for me not to order 10 of them!! It was buttery and lightly toasted, ample amount of lobster, and not too saucy nor too dry. Hands down the tastiest lobster roll we have ever eaten. Drinks were fabulous and the service bartender (forgive me, I don't know her name... dark hair, athletic build), was exciting to watch from our table! She killed it.More

This small restaurant is top notch. Terrific oysters. Great fish tacos. Reasonably priced. Try to come when they open or be prepared for a wait. Had a great time there. Excellent service and knowledgeable staff.

Never has a restaurant needed a great review less -- word is out that this is a hopping place with great food and even better staff! Dani at the door is a magician -- she is able to tell group after group that there is...a three hour wait and make them feel good about it!! She is unbelievable and 167 should make sure they take good care of this little gem -- and their amazing bartender Nikki! The basil, blueberry "slurpie" is fab and I would have had two if I wasn't the dg. Lobster roll amazing. But the best thing I ate was the lobster tostada. If you don't want to wait 3 hours -- get there early,More

We came for lunch before we had to leave for home. Food was great. The fish tacos were great. I would get the lobster roll again. Enjoy the oysters. The crab dip was ok.

We arrived around 6 pm and placed our name on the list (party of 4). The wait was under 2 hours. Dinner, service, atmosphere...all simply wonderful! Not stuffy, great vibe, amazing food! The pudding dessert was like NOTHING we’ve ever had, and it’s dreamy.

Our friends had recommended this bar. We went for the crab legs, but when we arrived were told they did not have crab legs often. We tried the oysters and shrimp. The oysters were good but very small. The shrimp were wonderful! I believe the...oysters were overpriced. We would go back for the shrimp. Fun little place.More

Love the vibe in this place. The staff are all having fun and know their products - food and drinks. Both were outstanding. The ceviche was my favorite :-)

I do not believe they do at this location. It is only 15 seats and there was no promotional material.
