We had an outrageous experience at the Noisy Oyster!

At the onset of ordering, I informed the waitress that my daughter had experienced a significant allergic reaction to shell-fish in the past and therefore, I did not want any of her

The Noisy Oyster is a great place to eat if you are a fan of ambulance rides and the Mt. Pleasant e.m.t.'s. After eating there in May my wife had to be taken by ambulance to Mt. Pleasant hospital in Charleston to stabilize her

Great desserts - home made cakes with huge portions. Happy hour specials are good but drinks any other time are PRICEY! The crab dip appetizer is fantastic. Everything else is middle of the road. Portions are large and service is pleasant. These resturants seem to be located all over the low country.

We loved this place! The alligator appetizer was wonderful and so was the service. The wind blew my menu into my beer and knocked it over, and my waiter replaced it for free without me asking. The desert was good, just a nice place to stop and enjoy the person you are with and have a couple drinks.

Pros: good food, good service

Cons: blackened seasoning wasnt that good.

I lived in Charleston for 6 years and The Noisy Oyster is a must-visit restaurant! The food is great, especially the crab dip and fish stew! Service is always prompt and friendly, and their happy hour is great!

We ordered the cold crab dip, a shrimp po boy, and an oyster po boy. The strongest flavor in the crab dip was the horseradish- couldn't even taste the crab. The tartar sauce on the po boys was incredibly bland. The bread tasted like wonder bread- not the delicious crusty french bread expected from a po boy. And the seafood didn't even taste fresh. The french fries were badly fried and covered in an excessive amount of seasoning salt to make up for it. This place is clearly a tacky tourist trap.

I had a very enjoyable dinning experience. The staff was great, one of the managers (Devin) came to our table, greeted us, asked us how our dinner was and my wife and I had a great conversation with him. Devin is a very polite and nice young man. I would recommend this place to any of my friends and family. I will be returning.

I have been to the Nosiy Oyster several times. The only downfall to this place is there is no airconditioning and in the middle of the summer it is very hot and hard to enjoy.
Other than the air issue thing, the Nosiy Oyster is a great place to eat. I am very picky about the breading of the popcorn shrimp I eat and this place is by far the best place for the popcorn shrimp.

A good place to eat good food and sit and enjoy the scenry downtown.

Okay, the food was okay, but not great! It was definitely way too expensive for the quantity of the food! There are better seafood restaurants out there!

After window shopping at several restaurant menus we landed at the Noisy Oyster on Market St. After an acceptable wait time, we got seated and that is when I noticed that my booth seat was not clean so I leaned down to clean it where the hostess was watching and didn't even bother to offer to clean it or have someone clean it. That was okay I got over it quick. We then looked at the menu and ordered an appetizer, 2 drinks, 1 salad, 2 soups and 2 entrees (Yes we were hungry). The appetizer was out fairly quickly which was nice and it was also decent. Not 3 minutes after that the 2 soups were on the table, at that time we were just starting with the appetizer so I asked the waitress to take them back 'til we are done and she did which was very nice. About 5 minutes after that those soups showed up again and of course we were not done with the appetizer so I decided to let it go and did not say anything. No joke, the entrees were delivered about 3 minutes after the soups and before the salad. We politely asked to return the salad as it came after the entree. To say the least, there is no system in place for timing the food delivery and/or sequencing and when you complain the waitress looks at you like you are from a different planet. My wife's entree was grouper stuffed with crab, she took a bite of it and the first thing out of her mouth is ?that it is too bland? so she stopped eating and put it to the side. When the waitress inquired about the food we said it is bland and her response was "SORRY" and quickly walked away. At that point I was upset because she really was not concerned about the customers but rather about table turnover. Needless to say, Noisy Oyster's management philosophy came out loud and clear: ?come in spend money and get out as fast as possible whether you had a good experience or not?.
I promise you we will not go there again and if you are reading this review do yourself a favor and eat at Magnolia?s which is only a block away.

Great restaurant for families and out-of-town guests. Easy to get to. Menu selection and drink selection is good. Sometimes there is a wait, and I'm not quite sure if you can make reservations or not.

We recently moved to the Charleston area and were unfamiliar with the local restaurants. We kinda stumbled across the Noisy Oyster restaurant while house hunting. The food was great, the service was excellent, and the prices were competitive. Overall, a great dining experience.

THis restaurant is a great seafood restaurant. Great flavor within a bite of the seafood that's offered. Also located in downtown charleston near all attractions. Great price and selections for food also. A great variety for mixed drinks. I went her when I turned 21 and got my very first 'blue hawaiian'! great, friendly staff & atmosphere. Very strict on ID checking!

PROS: Great establishment!
CONS: None!
