    The Coast Guard restaurant is an institution in Narragansett, and though we have been here before never dined at this restaurant. Off course the ambience and view is to die for, updated interior was modern and comfortable. The menus was varied and prices reasonable. Great service

    The food was excellent. I had scallops and the person I was with had salmon. Both were outstanding. The wine was very nice and the restaurant was lively and had a nice upbeat vibe. The wait staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure that we were comfortable and having a good time. I like how the interior has been updated - very classy!

    Couldn't wait for the coast Guard House to open - they did a wonderful job!! Not sure about the kitchen - over priced in our opinion. We ordered swordfish which unfortunately was very dry. We also ordered bok choy and brussel sprouts. To our amazement there were 4 pieces in each dish - thought $6 for each dish was just way over the top for no real vegetable. The tip calculator was also interesting. The tax was part of the amount used to calculated the tip !! We know the Coast Guard House should be better than our experience. We will give it one more try and hopefully have a better review next time.

    They have done a fantastic job with the remodeling after the hurricane. The view is not like any other in the area. The food was spectacular and the service was excellent. I have eaten inside in the dining room and outside on the deck. Their pasta is homemade, the lobster was in generous proportions and the sides were good.

    We had a special evening planned and requested a window seat. We were seated next to a bus station/bar serve area. When we first arrived we had requestd a window seat again. The hostess said they were full and first come first serve, without seeing how quickly they would be vacated. Before we received our first glass of wine three tables were vacated and we were not asked if we would like to move. We spent a lot of money on wine and food and felt a little disappointed. We did not tell our excellent waiter,Chris,of our desire to have a window seat feeling it was the hostess responsibility to assure that patrons were seated at requested tables as soon as they were available. So if you have a special evening planned.this may not be the best

    Ordered pasta with Little Neck clams. Clams were very large.and very chewy, certainly not little necks. Nor what you would expect from a good restaurant.We had our college grand daughter and did not want to ruin the evening by complaining so we just paid the bill and left. Interestingly we were never asked by our waiter or staff member if we enjoyed our food.The view is wonderful.

    The ambiance of the restaurant was good. Dinner overall was fantastic and had a good experience. There were plenty of options and the specials made it even better. There were somethings that were odd to us, no spoon came with the pasta dishes and once the water glasses were empty, we did not get a refill until 3/4 of the way through dinner. Overall the service was just okay but we would recommend this place for dinner if you are in the Narragansett area.

    This restaurant is a find, in an old stone building overlooking the water, surf pounding on rocks. It has an active bar scene, not-too-noisy restaurant. The service was good, but could have been more attentive. The menu has several good choices of local seafood, plus fowl and meat to satisfy anyone. Salads are especially outstanding and the food is very good overall.

  • The location of this restaurant
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/1/2012
    The location of this restaurant is spectacular, right next to the landmark bridge that overlooks Narragansett Beach. As far as service, we had a party of seven and we were placed in a separate room, which at first seemed like a nice gesture, until we realized our servers had forgotten about us several times. The whole meal took three hours and we didn't get any drink refills or place any orders without first having to flag someone down. When we finally did get our food, half of us were satisfied and half were disappointed, which just about summed up our entire evening. We were happy with the location but the lack of service and lack-luster food caused us to leave wishing we had chosen a different restaurant for dinner.

    Beautiful views since it is right on the water. The food($16-$25)and specialty drinks ($11) were very good and so was the service. The feel is dressy-casual to dressy but some people prefer to think every place is casual these days and that's unfortunate. There was a party (wedding reception?) upstairs where there's a long deck with bar and a small dance 'club') which did take away from the evening but overall a really nice place.

    We will not go back. I had never been and requested an outdoor table. The point of driving there was to enjoy the view. We got forgotten at the bar. The bar is right across from the check in area. We waited 40 minutes after we were told we had a 10 minute wait. My husband had to go over to see the hold up. Our waiter was personable but not attentive. We never got asked to order additional drinks and we had to grab him to get me a spoon so I could eat my chowder. It was delivered sans spoon. The food was ok. Not a fun experience. A sad tourist place and we will not recommend it to anyone. I have never had a simple request ignored before by any restaurant.

    Dined on 8/25/2012
    My first time at Coast Guard House was wonderful; the place was beautiful, and the view was fantastic. It can probably serve as a great bar scene, but I wouldn't know! Coast Guard House did an excellent job of separating the elegant dinner venue from the energetic bar scene upstairs on the deck, and I didn't have any hint that there was a bar scene there! The menu was exciting, interesting, and very tasty! My only qualm was that, while the waiter had a great personality, we did have to wait for him a while on multiple occasions -- but to be fair, it was a busy Saturday night. With that said, an overall fantastic experience. I can't wait to go again -- and maybe check out the deck!

    Great views and nice atmosphere but food was overpriced and very mediocre at best. My husband and I both ordered the dinner special, pasta with seafood in a pesto sauce. I was shocked when the bill arrived and it was $29.00!!! We both left hungry and the pasta was very bland. We did enjoy the views, the service, and the bar drinks were great. They need to improve the food and this could be a great restaurant. Would not go back for dinner. Maybe a pre-dinner drink then dine elsewhere!
