We decided to go out for a nice dinner and wanted to have some seafood, so we tried The Noisy Oyster and it was an idea that I wouldn't recommend to anyone else! The crab dip was served with crackers, and it was mediocre. I ordered the grilled Mahi Mahi, which was less than a 6 oz serving with a very, very small side of rice. That was it. I left hungry, even after an appetizer, and at $18 an entree, it was a real ripoff! The waitress was slow, and she didn't seem to care how I felt. Another friend in our group ordered a chicken breast, which was also a small serving with a small side of green beans and he was still hungry also. Long wait between seeing the waitress. Uh, the chairs were comfortable. That's the only positive thing I can say.

From beginning to end, the Noisy Oyster in North Charleston was completely awful. When we arrived we requested non-smoking because we had a pregnant woman in our group. They sat us in non-smoking BUT the smoking section began at the table next to us where five customers were lighting up. The waitress seemed unconcerned and told us the other table should be leaving soon. We moved our pregnant friend to the end of the table and hoped for the best.

Two of us ordered their "famous" she crab soup and that was a huge mistake. It was more like a gumbo than the silky smooth soup we are used to. There were chunks of crab shell all in it. We only had five spoon fulls and sent it back. We also ordered the oyster sampler as an appetizer, and that was over cooked and the oysters were too rubbery because of this mistake. The salads were ok, but nothing fantastic.

When our meal arrived, one of our orders was completely incorrect and the waitress wasn't interested in fixing it. A special order was ignored and all the fish was tasteless. The oysters I ordered were not steamed correctly and were very difficult to open. Everyone's french fries were cold and tasted like they had been cooked hours earlier and placed under a heat lamp.

The waitress wasn't terrible, just marginal and the management was not concerned with any of our suggestions.

Just when we thought the terrible experience was over, we got home only to realize that the restaurant had double charged our credit cards. When we called to ask them to remove one of the charges, we were told it was the bank's fault, although none of us bank in the same place. They are totally uninterested in providing good service and the food was terrible. Not one of us (out of five) enjoyed our meal. I suggest talking to the locals in Charleston if you're visiting to find out where to get good sea food. Avoid this restaurant at all costs! The one downtown may be better, but this location is the worst!

Pros: None

Cons: Food, service, atmosphere

Before the Noisy Oyster moved from it's previous location on Rivers Ave near the Wal-Mart, it used to be a great place to have "happy hour", a nice dinner and even just to mingle with the bartenders/waitresses there. but now since it moved to its NEW location on the other side of Rivers Ave, I think they left the great service it once had, at the old location. WHAT HAPPENED?????!!!! The service isn't good anymore, the NEW bartenders and waitresses there don't really care about servicing you or making sure that you are a happy customer. The food is definitely overpriced and the quality of the food isn't what it used to be. It's definitely off my list and I will now travel downtown to A. W. Shucks or drive out to Merrel's Inlet, if I have to, just to get some decent seafood, with great service, at a remarkable price! Noisy Oyster should have never moved!

I ate at the Noisy Oyster yesterday and all I could think was "What has happened to this restaurant?" It used to be my favorite place to dine but not anymore...the food way to expensive...I spent $9 just in extras such as tea, upgraded baked potato & $2 extra to exchange cole slaw for a house salad. The food was not as good as I remembered & much smaller portions. I was also very unimpressed with the service.

I will not be dining at this restaurant ever again...too many other GOOD seafood restaurants in Charleston, SC.

We had to eat seafood while visiting Charleston. We ate a lot of the different places downtown. While leaving, we decided to try one more restaurant and it was worth it! They had the best flounder ever!

Pros: Great food, Great atmosphere, Get lunch specials

Cons: None!

The Noisy Oyster seems to mainly get by because it's a seafood restaurant in Charleston. The food's a bit overpriced, and not that great. Service has never been exceptional.

It's hard to write a bad review, in my book....I just know we have so many good restaurants in Charleston. But the Noisy Oyster is not one of them. It's not very clean most of the time. The service lacks too. It has a wide variety of food on the menu, which is one of it's attractions - as well as the huge fake shark hanging up outside. But it's just not worth the trip.

PROS: Ok menu (variety)
CONS: Not very clean, service not very good.

This is an unpretentious seafood restaurant. You can sit in the dining room or in the bar area. The food is great, reasonably priced and served with huge portions. The scallops and the coconut shrimp appetizer are very good. Service is spotty. On some occasions it has been very good and on others there have been long waits.

PROS: Great Food Reasonable Prices
CONS: Service not consistant
