    Megan (server) was great! Cody (manager) came by because we were having such a great time with Megan. He was great as well. The whole experience was good all the way around. We will most definitely go back many more times.

    The beautiful setting of this eatery greatly enhances the experience. Emma, as a hostess, is most accommodating and lovely. Having a drink at the upstairs bar is always delightful a a great way to begin the evening...be careful to limit the french fries so you can enjoy the dinner. Start with the cauliflower for the table. Enjoy!

    The hostess was very nice and did give us a table on “the view” side, although half the people had their back to the view due to the placement of the tables.. weird design for such a pretty view. Our server was great, a marketing student at CofC, but our food really was not too good, and pretty expensive. Presentation was poor in dark green (or was it blue) small bowls…hard to see the food. I really hate to give a poor review, but hoping someone will take notice and fix things as it really is a beautiful place in a beautiful location. I’ve mostly eaten upstairs and that is much better for a casual experience. Honestly I’d stick to the upstairs unless they make some changes.

    We ate at Kingstide on a Friday evening at 5:30 pm. Everyone we interacted with from the staff was absolutely amazing. They went above and beyond to make our experience positive; our server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu. I would highly recommend Kingstide to anyone in the Charleston area!

    The KingstideResponded on November 18, 2022Taylor! Thanks for this review, it always means the most to get complimented on our incredible staff. We hope to see you soon!

    our first time here, great overall experience, only complaint was noise level(, why do people have to talk so loud, it ruins the relaxing part of the meal for others) our server caroline made the evening, she was so pleasant and welcoming-thank you! the food was delicious, it was hard to decide so we will have to come back:) also, while it wasn't on the menu, glad they had a cider, and a really good one, so my hubby could enjoy

    For the most part everything was good. Beautiful area and restaurant. Drinks, apps, and dessert were all delicious. Only had one issue - my husband ordered white fish and it came out completely uncooked. The server said she’d never experienced that there. They brought him out a new dish that he ate and was happy with. We experienced a minor issue last time we were there as well, I’m not sure if we would go back but I’d say it’s definitely worth a try.

    The setting and restaurant are beautiful. Service was great and three out of four of us enjoyed our dinner. The steak dinner was a little on the different side in terms of flavor but the mahi, tuna and pasta dishes were great and our server Lindsay was fantastic.

    Ate at Kingstide on 10/24 following a play at Dock street Theater as a party of 4. First time diners at this restaurant. Service was excellent. Arrived a bit after 5:00 which helped us beat the rush so dining inside was quite. Received great recommendations from our waitress. She was very knowledgeable. We had octopus appetizer and hush puppies. Both were very good and tasty. Main courses were Flat Iron Steak, Tuna and Mahi Mahi with Brussel Sprouts on the side for the table. All were excellent with the flat iron steak being moist, juicy and very tasty. The tuna and Mahi Mahi were also wonderfully prepared. Carrot cake for dessert topped off a wonderful dining experience. We recommend the restaurant and plan to try it again.

    The food was excellent, but the service was absolutely horrible. The server that we had was a young female, who apparently was training a young male and clearly either didn’t know what she was doing or just didn’t care. There were multiple times where we literally had to get up from our table to go try and find someone for basic things like more water, dessert menu, the check , etc. we had family from out of town who we wanted to take to a nice dinner and unfortunately it ruined the evening.

    Beautiful setting, but the service was not up to par. We were seated quickly, cocktails took a bit to be served. We waited over 45 minutes for the appetizer. Upon a lengthy conversation with management they did credit us for a drink and one appetizer. Hopefully this is just growing pains.
