Fun restaurant with great seafood 2/21/2009

My boyfriend and I went here for our Valentine's Day dinner and we loved it. The atmosphere is really nice and fun. It makes you feel like you're outside, even though you aren't and I liked that. The waitress really knew the food and recommended the swordfish special and it was delicious! I got the crab stuffed lobster and though it was a little small, it was tasty. We enjoyed ourselves and the dinner and wine were great. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Pros: Great food and waitress knew the menu well Cons: They were out of the crab stuff tilapa :( more

A wonderful meal!! 8/29/2008

Coast is a great restaurant. A little hard to find if you don't call and specifically ask where they are (in the walkway behind 39) but very nice decor. I strongly encourage the Crab stuffed Tilapia, that was exceptional! The waitress was very helpful, my boyfriend requires gluten-free and she went back into the kitchen to find out about various dishes and came back with a full report of what would be good options for him without our asking. I thought that was a very generous act! Pros: excellent food and service Cons: parking more

Great Drinks and Wonderful Grouper 10/15/2007

My husband and I had reservations at 8pm. We got there early and sat at the bar for a few drinks. I had the mango mojitos, which were really refreshing and tastey. My husband ordered a plain mojito which was a little strong for me. It was 8:30pm before we got a table (the bartender had to go to the hoistess to see what was taking so long). After we were seated we ordered the bacon wrapped scallops for an appetizer. My husband loved them and they did have a good flavor, but I thought they were under-cooked. I told the waitress and she responded by saying they always under-cook their seafood in case the customer is not satisfied they can take it back and cook it some more. WHAT? I've never heard of such! Oh well, I ordered the encrusted grouper for my entree and it was well worth the wait. It was full of flavor, flaky and delicious. I would go back to this restaurant, but I wouldn't order the bacon wrapped scallops again. Pros: Mango Mojitos, location is neat Cons: Bacon Wrapped Scallops and slow service more

Amazing 10/2/2005

The food and selection was amazing!!! I had the Cashew Crusted Grouper and my husband had the Red Snapper! Both were amazing and delicious! We will return to Coast everytime we visit Charleston! Pros: Appetizers, Servers more

Excellent seafood 4/22/2005

The seafood from the woodfire grill was amazing. The grouper outclasses the snapper. Try the blue cheese bacon slaw, it is an interesting twist on an American staple. Our waitress, Sade, gets extra marks for making it a great evening. The wait for a table was a little longer than expected, but well worth the wait. Pros: woodfire grill, lump crab Cons: crowded, bar service slow more

Fish and more 1/23/2004

When we go out to eat, especially in a coastal area like Charleston, we like to find somewhere with local seafood for me but also with some non-seafood for my wife. Coast was right around the corner from our downtown hotel, and we happened to catch Charleston during freezing temperatures, so we thought we would try it. We were not disappointed. Pros: Good food, Ambience Cons: Expensive drinks more
