    Coast has great food and service. The location is perfect and my friends and I always have a great time. My only problem is that when we got there with our reservation they told me that there will still be a 35 minute wait. We ended up sitting at the bar and enjoyed ourselves but we would have preferred to sit on the patio as our reservation stated.

    I got there a little early to meet up with friends and the woman behind the bar was very, very accommodating and attentive. I really appreciated her taking care of me while I waited. The waiter that night said it was his first night there, but he handled our table like a pro. The staff is just as important as the food so the staff being great on top of the food being delicious just made for a nice night.

    Dined on 8/18/2014
    We love Coast for the Monday night crab special. We weren't aware that the special changed - from half-off crab to half-off crab for the first pound only. That's understandable, knowing how many pounds of crab one person can devour in a sitting, but the crab was not up to its usual quality. It seemed like the grab was sitting out for a very long time before being reheated for service. I understand how important being efficient is in the kitchen, especially on nights when you know that one item will be served over and over again, but I just hope it was an off night. We will certainly be back.

    The food was absolutely fantastic. The night we went it was a torrential downpour and they have valet parking under a tent. The valet attendants are fantastic and attentive. We wound up sitting at a table in the bar area and it's quite loud so conversation is a little strained, but the food and service are worth it.

    We had the crab leg special tonight. Crab legs were perfect. Great menu with lots of options for all. We added shrimp to the special and they were perfect and tender. Ask for Kelly. Service was great. We have followed Kelly from previous restaurant and she is the best for great service every time. She will take time to explain anything on the menu and works to make sure you always have a great experience.

  • Wednesday Oyster Night! YUM!
    DisneyAmy
    Dined on 7/30/2014
    If you like raw oysters, you must go on a Wednesday when they are $6 a dozen (for Gulf oysters)!!! They are fresh and so delicious! I keep thinking about them even though we went 2 weeks ago! If we lived closer, this would be our Wednesday date night every week! Parking kind of stinks since they only have valet (which is jammed packed) or you have to find a spot. We had to park on the street about a block down. It was a nice night out, so no big deal, I guess. It was also a bit loud, but again, it wasn't a huge problem since we sat upstairs. Sitting outside looked like fun. Their dinners were delicious and fresh, too! My scallops were cooked perfectly and my husband's okra was one of the best fried okras I've ever had! We'll be back!

    Coast is a great little Buckhead gem. There's valet parking on the backside (off East Andrews). They have a large porch of hightop tables available on a first-come-first-serve basis. A guy sings/strums his guitar on the weekends, adding to the laid-back vibe. I usually rely on the appetizer menu and share a bunch of small plates with my dining companions. They offer a great deal on oysters on Wednesday night, which is reason alone to come here.

Only thing I would comain about is that our waitress was super weird and first walked up to our table and didn't say anything but stared at us. But everything else was great and we can't wait to come back again soon we had a blast!

    Second time at this delightful seafood restaurant in Buckhead. Everything that the four of us had was delicious. It's Buckhead, so nothing is inexpensive, but the prices at Coast are more reasonable than most for excellent casual dining. Noise level fairly high, but bearable. Will definitely be back.

    I met a friend here for networking around 7.30pm and it was packed. My friend and I went to the bar, drank some good, moderate strength drinks and the bartender kept the drinks full. After that I met another friend at 8.30pm for dinner and made sure I had a reservation because it is a popular place. The waitress was highly energetic and kept the drinks full and the water glasses full. The food was good and filling. It was a good experience and if I am craving seafood or want sangrias, I will come here again.

    I have given Coast the best rating every time we have been there which is many times. However we were sitting upstairs and I am sure it was hard to wait on us but seems like they forgot about us. Never got service for drinks very often and our snapper was horrible. Dry and not good but it was the special of the evening.

We usually save this place for a special occasion since (for a good time) you will spend $75 to $100 for too people. Well worth it!

    I have been wanting to come to this place for a very long time. Finally! I got the opportunity. The place was crowded, and my friends did not realize that I'd made a reservation. We were seated within minutes of the exact time of my reservation. Our server was Holly, who was extremely sweet and a very good server, I hope she can serve us again. The food was great! The Mango lemonade was quite tasty. The oysters were huge especially for $6 per dozen. The calamari was really good as well. I ordered the grass fed burger, a big burger, with some kind of sauce that I didn't particularly care for, but the burger was good overall. The rear patio is the nicest seating, request that when you go, with 4 tables and leads to the valet parking lot.

    great menu and the food was some of the best I've ever had. However, the noise level was extremely high. I was meeting a friend and we wanted to visit and get caught up with each other. We couldn't hear each other at a table for 2. It was a strain to try to be heard. Noise level of a crowded bar. No music, so I don't know why it was so loud; just the acoustics. In hind sight, I wish we had been seated outside.

I had the shrimp scampi topped with a crab cake and it was delicious. My dining companions had the salmon and lemon sole and both were great. The banana fosters bread pudding for dessert is not to be missed. Our server was very attentive. Great food in a cozy atmosphere!
