Fish is located on the very hoppin end of upper King St. Customers of various restaurants spill out on to the side walk and the energy is electric. Surprisingly, when we arrived at Fish it wasnt very busy. Lucky for us!

I have been in several times for lunch and dinner and have had an awesome time. Lunch for $10 and your in and out is great when you're on the go. Moo Shu is filling and not heavy so you feel energized. Dinner is fantastic with its french asian flare. Way to go fish!!!

Pros: Fresh Local Products and Eco Friendly

Cons: King St Parking

Have been one time and it was absolutly amazing. Chef knows his stuff. Great atmosphere, food was prepared to perfection. I love to cook and find it hard to go out to eat and get a meal as good as what I can prepare, this was a pleasant surprise. Definately would go back and recommend to friends.

Pros: Everything

Surprises are appreciated and even expected at certain times. Birthday surprises, holiday surprises - but how about a Wednesday night surprise? I practically had to drag my wife back to Fish after several good, but not special, meals over the last couple of years. What a difference a new Chef (with a capital C) makes. We had the absolute pleasure of eating at what is becoming one of Charleston's best dining rooms. The appetizers were exceptional. Both tempting to the eye and the palate. We shared the spring rolls and the tuna tartar and found both to be wonderful. The dinner special was a triggerfish prepared in a beurre blanc sauce with a delicious sweet potato gratin. Dessert followed with a carrot cake confection that was out of this world. Our server was knowledgeable, with the paceing of the meal down to the second. Fish is a fantastic "new" restaurant which has taken root in a long time favorite spot and is now elevated to one of the best in town!

Pros: Fantastic preparations with high quality fresh ingredients

Cons: Parking is always a challenge in this now hot area of upper King Street

I have dined at Fish several times in the past few months and I absolutely love the new menu! Without the usual fried items on the menu, Fish has set itself apart from other seafood restaurants in downtown Charleston. One of my favorite dishes is the seared tuna filet served with a slice of grilled watermelon- it sounds odd I know, but believe me, the two flavors are wonderful together! Another item to note is the scallop ceviche-very tasty an unique. Also the restaurant has recently changed their entertainment on Wednesdays from a gentleman who used to play guitar and sing classic rock, to a jazz trio-very good choice. So, by all means, give Fish a try, I guarantee it will be a dinner you will not soon forget-and I forgot to mention- prices are extremely reasonable!

Pros: Unique menu, great wine selection

Fish undoubtedly was one of the best restaurants in Charleston when it opened - up until recently. There have been MANY noticeable and unfortunate changes with the food and service. I've had several really, really bad meals there within the past two months. The last meal was so bad that I've had to "X" Fish off my list of places to eat. My grouper tasted like shoe leather. It was virtually inedible. My wife had grits as a side item with her entree - they were like gummy paste. The server was not at all apologetic. After sending our dishes back, I felt very uncomfortable eating what was brought to us as replacement dishes because of the way the server acted - as if we were inconveniencing her. I don't know what is going on at this restaurant, but if they don't make some drastic changes, and soon, they can expect to put a for sale sign in their window by year's end because they will have no business. Come on Fish - get your act together!

Pros: Nice Atmosphere

Cons: Poor Location, Lack of Parking, Questionable Area of Town

I don't know what has happened to this restaurant, but it has definitely taken a turn for the worse. FISH used to be excellent - the best seafood in town and reliable, efficient service. Lately it has almost been unbearable. My wife & I dined here regularly on Wednesday evenings - within the past month the food has not been prepared properly - my grouper tasted like chewy, tasteless leather - and my wife's dish, which came with grits was practically inedible. We ended up having to send her meal back. I hope that FISH gets back on track, but regretably we will be dining elsewhere. A true shame!

Pros: Nice Atmosphere

Cons: Food Quality Inconsistent, Service Is Not Reliable, Not The Best Area of Town

This is a beautiful restaurant and the food and service is top-notch. It is great to see this area of King Street come alive. We were visiting from NY and had several excellent meals in Charleston and our meal at Fish was a highlight.

Pros: Service - Molly?, Ambience, Food

Cons: None

My wife had the swordfish and I had the grouper. High quality seafood, cooked to perfection, but that was it, "cooked fish". No special toping or sauce, no imagination. The sides were nothing special as well. Quantities were adequate, but a little on the light side for the price and the city. I will probably never go back, there are better places.

Outstanding service, outstanding fish - kudos to the "naked fish of the day." You expect to find fresh fish in Charleston but the naked fish on the menu far exceeds any expectations you have for the city. Very personal staff and romantic ambiance. The scallops with caramelized onions were delicious...as was the Penefold's 20-year tawny port. In general, fish is definitely the restaurant's specialty. My husband and I would put it on the list of top 3 places to go back to in Charleston to have a wonderful meal.

We used to live in Charleston, so after going to the same old "haunts" everytime we came back, I wanted something new to try. We went to Fish. Out of this world!! From the time we were greeted, to the end of the meal it was great. The food was excellent-all four of us were thrilled with our food.The atmosphere, service and meal was impeccable.Our server,Kristan, knew the menu inside & out! She was a pleasure & so was the owner. From start to end,one of the best meals I've had, at a good price. I highly recommend it!!!!

Situated in a two story single house, Fish encompasses a gated patio where twinkling lights set a romantic tone at night. Master craftsman boat maker Franz Baichl built the bar, and recycled materials shape much of the physical structure.…
