We asked for a recommendation for lunch before another appointment and were directed into the crowded bar. The food and service made the crowd go away. The ceviche was fresh and delicious. The tuna tatake was heaven in every bite. I never knew shrimp or...fish tacos could ever taste better. I did not want to leave after such an incredible experience of local, fresh, and exciting.More

The key lime pie was the best we experienced in Charleston. The atmosphere was great and the service was good. Our dinners included fish tacos which were good and shrimp po boy which was very good. The bread they served it on was exceptionally good...with a slightly butter toasted edge.More

I would not recommend this restaurant - it charges fine dining prices for a bar atmosphere. My husband and our friends loved the oysters but they are $40 a dozen. I had a shrimp po boy which was fine but very small - served on...a hot dog type roll with potato chips. I did not like the atmosphere - very loud pop music, tables very close together, long bar area.More

167 Raw bar is worth the wait. We had great food and superb service. We ordered alot, but the crab dip was to die for. Definitely stick to the board as well and order the catch of the days.

Everything was top notch. The oysters were outrageous and expertly shucked. My wife proclaimed the crab dip as the best thing she had ever eaten. There wasn’t a loser in everything that we tried. The house beer was delicious and the wines we had were...all fantastic. The service left us wanting for nothing. Some people just know how to run a restaurantMore

We finally had a chance to go to this restaurant during a more slow day in Charleston. The food was excellent (especially the taco choices) and very nicely presented. Very flavorful. On the contrary side: It would really help the experience at this venue if...the waiters would be a little nicer. I am not saying they were arrogant at all. But they were not relating to their guests at all. Food plates just put in front of you without explanation, no smile ... and the bill presented at the end without asking for desert or coffee. Not what you would expect from a place like this ...More

By far the best meal I had while I was in Charleston and it was my first. The crab dip was heavenly, the lobster roll was as delicious as the one I consumed in Nantucket and the local farm petit salad perfection. I can’t recommend...this place enough! If you can’t get a reservation, just show up and wait. It’s definitely worth it.More

The Connecticut style lobster rolls are served warm. Their traditional style is also warm.

I do not believe they do at this location. It is only 15 seats and there was no promotional material.
