We stopped at the downtown Charleston location by the market. I can see why they charge an 18% gratuity on 6 or more in the party because the service was very poor. We ordered house salads and an appetizer and waited for over 40 minutes for them. We received the wrong drinks and also had to ask again for something as simple as splenda packets for our tea. A small $5 salad was definitely small. Will never go there again. Poor service and over rated, over inflated prices.
We go here every time we're in Charleston, and haven't had a bad meal yet. In fact, all have been great. The atmosphere is wonderful, being right on Wappoo Creek. Boats can come and park at the dock and eat there; you get to watch all the boats ambling along the waterway; and sometimes you get to see the drawbridge raise, or see some dolphins.
The food is really quite good. Fresh; good portions. Friendly good staff as well.
I had the blackened snapper there and it was much too blackened, so seasoned that you couldn't even taste the snapper! I was very disappointed. Didn't like the red rice either. My husband had the oysters and was happy with that however. Nice atmosphere but most staff seemed arrogant rather than friendly and helpful.
This restaurant is located right on the river and it is great to watch the boats go by. The service was good and the food was okay. Definitely not worth the money. The key lime pie is to die for! We got there early so there wasn't a wait, but I am sure it gets very busy if you wait too long. Sit outside or in the back room if you can so you can get a good view.
The Charleston Crab House is the best sea food restaurant that I have had the pleasure of visiting. Each year I take busniess trip to Charleston SC and look forward to an evening of great food, excellent service, and uncomparable ambiance at the waters edge. I have visited the James Island establishment for 7 year now and the food only seems to get better each time. from the succlent crab dip and blue crab claw appetizers, to the perfectly fried sea food platter as well as their unique hushpuppies and tasty deserts, you will want to visit this wonderful establishment again and again. I sure do. I can't wait until next year.
