Small establishment with a raw bar and a few tables. Space is limited but the food is worth the visit. Staff is fantastic and eager to assist. Great vibe. Tasty selection of oysters and wines. Lobster roll and ceviche were also super. Will not hesitate...More

What a great little place. I was in Charleston for business (right after their big snow event) and got the opportunity to eat at 167 Raw. If you're claustrophobic and don't want to be elbow to elbow, don't eat here, but if you want awesome...More

I’m hesitant to give this a 5 star rating only because the more people that find out about how good it is the longer the wait will be. This is a very small place, there is bar seating and two small tables inside. Sometimes they...More

Best lobster roll I have had since I was in Maine. Seating is not plentiful so go off hours unless you enjoy waiting. But the food is amazing. Local craft beers on tap.

167 Raw was awesome. We arrived about 1:15 for lunch and we're seated at the bar immediately. It is really a small venue, so I'm sure you might have to wait at other times. The food was absolutely delicious and the bartender and oyster man...More
