Diner Reviews
  • "A real gem of the Golden Isles, it has great ambience, coupled with excellent service and good food. When the weather permits, it has excellent opportunity for outside dining. The management is excellent in that are always planning for the customer's dining experience. In grade terms, this establishment is a solid "A"."

  • "Very attractive, scenic views of marsh & marina. Excellent dining experience with top notch menu items full of flavor and prepared with care. The indoor experience was intimate (in a good way as never felt crowded), but noise levels did pick up as diners increased. Look forward return visits to St. Simons as Coastal Kitchen was our choice find that will be our must-go stop on future vacations to come."

  • "Restaurant was a melting pot of diners on the Saturday night we were there. Families, couples and large groups were all intertwined. Outside around a pool, there were two bands that played. Lively atmosphere. Food was very good. The setting is very nice. Inside and outdoor seating overlooking the moored boats and waterway."

  • "Fish is always fresh- plates always well done. Nice inside dining but even better on the deck overlooking the marina."

  • "Ordered the same dish we ordered last time, though the chicken was slightly overdone and nearly as yummy as the last visit. I'm sure it was just a different person preparing the dish this time. The noise level was almost unbearable. This is certainly something we will consider when we consider visiting again. It was so loud that we didn't stay for dessert. We left and went to a different restaurant! Service was great and the view is amazing."

  • "For tourists with a limited amount of time in the area, we found the perfect spot for a meal with local Georgia color and flavor at the Coastal Kitchen. Arriving at 6, slightly before the crowd allowed our request for a table with a view to be honored with the best seat in the house for a view of the marina and salt marsh. The menu gave us seafood choices and the dessert menu was an added delicious surprise meeting a variety of tastes Service was efficient and all in all our experience was worth the tab."

  • "We often dine here for brunch and have come for dinner several times. When it's not too busy we've always had a great experience (food, scenic view, service). But this particular evening, it was very busy and I'm not so certain "they do busy well". Our server had at least 3 large tables to cover and it showed. What should have taken 5 minutes took 15-20 minutes. Bread for the meal arrived as the entrees were being finished. You get the idea. I've previously heard others complain that this place is very noisy, but had never really experienced that until now. It IS noisy when full. Despite all of this, the food remained very good and we'll certainly return to our habit of the frequent Sunday brunch and occasional dinner."

  • "The food at CC was outstanding and the staff very friendly and helpful. Wines were excellent. The view was really cool, though the birds were a nuisance outside. It's a little noisy, but the original dishes and overall ambiance made it one of our top 2 restaurants at SSI."

  • "the food and service was excellent - unfortunately there was music provided that was so loud, I had to leave due to a headache. I don't usually get them, but this was really difficult. I was there to meet up with old friends whom I hadn't seen in awhile and was unable to hold any conversation due to the loudness. Please tone it down and I'll definitely come back."

  • "Enjoyed the food greatly and the view of the marina and inlet. It was so noisy it was difficult to hear the waitress. Go late - noise level is better after guests leave."

  • "Great views, food and good service, but a very loud band ruined it for us."

  • "Great shrimp and grits, available in two styles. The modern s&g have butternut squash as a basis for the sauce, Both styles are excellent.. Very considerate about food allergies."

  • "Excellent dinner; location right on the water close to a dock area. Food was outstanding and the water view is beautiful. The only drawback was we dined outside and there were several gnats that kept disturbing our pre- dinner. Our server Liz took us inside and placed us at a window table . She was GREAT and is an asset to the restaurant. This is definately a winner when you are in the St Simons area."

  • "We had a great meal with excellent service. I would recommend this restaurant to my friends and family but is not a restaurant I would take my kids to."

  • "Had a pretty good meal but to be honest this is 2 days later and I don't recall what I had. My wife had the scallops and shrimp and it was to die for! The cheese cake she had was delicious but I thought the pecan pie was the best I ever had."

  • "We asked for a table by the window and received the best table in the restaurant with a gorgeous view of the sunset over the water! We had a party of six and everyone's dinner was perfect. One of the evening's special offerings was lamb chops enjoyed by two members of our party. Desserts were equally as tasty with creme brûlée and homemade ice cream all around. When dining in the golden isles one cannot go wrong at Coastal Kitchen for ambience and quality of food....a nice dining experience."

  • "A delicious dinner of excellent fresh local seafood. The restaurant is not overly fussy - a little country like casual but kicked up a notch to be a bit more dressy. The flavors combined in my snapper entre were delicious - with some smokey overtones from a bacon reduction - along with delicious and fresh root vegetables and brussel sprouts The fried shrimp was gorgeous-- and the only complaint we heard was that the oysters were not 'briney' enough - which I am perfectly fine with!"

  • "The almost rude hostess was a bad start. Seemed hard for her to smile. Not a good first impression. It was a chilly night so we had to sit inside. Our waitress was very sweet and attentive. We had Caesar salads. If we hadn't asked for anchovies, not sure how bland it would've been. We both tasted mayo in the dressing. My husband got the burger. It was good, bacon & cheese. Cooked just right. But the fries were limp & not very good. I had the flounder. It was good, cooked perfectly. The sauce was a little sweet for me tho. The grits were great. We didn't have dessert. I thought the atmosphere was ok. My husband thought for 'fine dining' it was loud. If they had a fantastic Caesar I would've been happier. Kinda pricey."

  • "My wife and I spent NYE at Sea Island. Two people can't eat for less than $100 at any of the resorts's restaurants. The Coastal Kitchen was a great dining experience at a wonderful price. We both left full after splitting an order of a dozen oysters and having our own entrees. I had the new school shrimp and grits. INVENTIVE and FANTASTIC!!! We will go back on our next trip to Sea Island."

  • "Enjoyed what I had. I got salmon with wasabi mash. Waiter said the wasabi.gave a spice but it wasn't super spicy. I could barely enjoy them it was over the top for me. The veggies and salmon was great. The citrus soy sauce was outstanding. My wife liked the stuffed flouder. I had her grits and enjoyed them. I wish we went for lunch because we went because it showed up on Open Table for best views in GA. At night it was dark so that was lost. Bad planning on our part. Overall we enjoyed the evening. Oh.. The drinks were good as well."

  • "Our party size changed from the time we made reservations for 6, that went to 4... and ended up for 2. Our waitress was mighty accommodating and patient. Wish I had gotten her name. Her smile and sweet charm even impressed my wife! The service only made the deck dining and food all the better. Lobster nachos were unbelievably good....the salads were simple, but very unique in preparation and quite tasty...the main course- shrimp and grits and blackened snapper were perfectly seasoned... not overspiced as is typically the case. We enjoyed the meal so much we ordered 2 entire meals to go for our family members who we're arriving late. We definitely recommend Coastal Kitchen!"

  • "Coastal Kitchen came highly recommended and we had lunch there in April. Everything was nice but didn't live up restaurant's reputation. With so many great places to dine in the Golden Isles we moved on to other places. When our friends raved about their wonderful experiences at Coastal Kitchen we promised to give the restaurant another try. Saturdays dinner was great! I enjoyed the chef's version of "Shrimp & Grits" and my wife loved the Snapper. The food was enjoyable and the service we received from James was perfect. Perhaps it's like the old Frank Sinatra standard and things can be lovelier the second time around. Coastal Kitchen has such a great reputation that we wanted to like it and our dining experience Saturday won us over."
