We were visiting the Market Place in downtown Charleston and wanted to try a restaurant we had not been before. We decided on the Oyster House and I must say it was a most great restaurant experience! The food was fresh and delicious, the staff was extremely friendly and the atmosphere was pure Charleston! I decided on the Crab Cake Sandwich with a side of grits for $14.59. The crab cake was cooked perfectly as well as the grits. My husband decided to try the fried shrimp with fries and slaw for $20.99. He said the shrimp was very tasty and the fries cooked nicely. Our friend decided to go with the Grouper sandwich and fries for $14.99 and stated the sandwich was very good as well as the fries. There is so much to choose from on the menu... Oyster Rockefeller only $13.99. Filet Mignon 6 oz for $24.99. How about some Lobster Mack and Cheese for $12.99. If you can't decided then go for the Fried Seafood Platter of shrimp, oysters, grouper and fries with slaw for $15.99. We'll be back soon to try some more tasty seafood!

We went to eat for my son's birthday and it was beyond what we expected. Our waiter, was excellent and went out of his way to make sure our dinner exceeded our expectations. One of the other waiters was born on the same day and year as my son and he came over and couldn't believe it. Needless to say if we had gone anywhere else it would not have been as memorable. They got the Market Street tower, and I had a burger. YUM Highly recommend

We enjoyed lunch here. We got the seafood tower. It was very good, but maybe not the best we've had. That being said it was very enjoyable. The service was great and the drinks were very good as well.

Popped in for happy hour. The bartender could not have been more accommodating. She recommended a nice dry crisp Pinot Grigio - it was very refreshing after a long hot day touring the city. My husband said his beer was cold just like it should be. Hard to find very cold beer. Happy hour prices were terrific. Best plus was the oyster happy hour. Ordered a dozen and they were so good, we ordered another dozen.

Great place.
