Diner Reviews
  • "The staff and the ambience were great, but the food was just okay. I just wish a restaurant would realize you don't need to add all this oil and grease in cooking fish. Just the natural flavor along with good sides are fine."

  • "We had a very nice evening at the Coastal Kitchen. My husband ordered the lobster nachos and they were wonderful. the nachos were crunchy and loaded with lobster and topped with a great sauce. He also had the fried shrimp which was very good and I had the shrimp and grits. Everything was fresh and good."

  • "Fantastic, huge burgers. Good Caesar, with anchovies of course. The best calamari I've had in a long time. Gave the food 4 stars instead of 5 because the fries were kinda wimpy. Waiter was fantastic. Dining on the covered patio overlooking the marina and river was wonderful. Good live music. Just a fun night all around."

  • "This is always on our list of must visit places each year when we visit SSI for our annual family vacation! Excellent food and service but this year it was extremely noisy for some reason but we still enjoyed our meal. That's the reason for the 4 star rating. The view is wonderful! "
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Coastal Kitchen is always my go to place on SSI. The new menu is awesome and I can't wait to try the new dishes. I had the Cajun Mahi special with cheese grits and veggies. YUM! The appetizer friend green tomatoes and mozzarella cheese was excellent. My friend had the calamari appetizer and didn't leave one in the bowl. The views are amazing. Sit in or out. Perfect. "

  • "Food was wonderful, but I mostly appreciated the vegetarian friendly menu."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Crab cake and snapper was over salted. Snapper was slightly over cooked. All ingredients not listed on descriptions so tough for allergies to nuts and tomatoes I.e. Arugula salad. "
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "At the server's suggestion, I tried the snapper and roasted vegetables, and was he ever accurate! I literally groaned between each bite it was so delicious. In fact, to my husband's horror, I even "sopped" the sauce with the hot biscuits brought to our table. (My husband tried the shrimp and grits and was very satisfied, too.) From appetizing steamed oysters, small but filled with flavor, to the homemade honey pecan ice cream, it was 5 star all the way. Highly, HIGHLY recommended. Probably the only downside to our visit was the noise level. We were celebrating our 35th anniversary and would have preferred something a little more quiet. Regardless, the food so over ruled, it really wasn't an issue. Can't wait to go back! "
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "The Shrimp and Grits is amazing. There are two kinds. I had the "new" version, and I plan to go back to try the more traditional version as soon as we are back in the area. The grits are perfection - and I am very picky about my grits!"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "We always make a point of eating at the Coastal Kitchen. Wonderful seafood."

  • "Good menu variety. Good service. Great place to take out of town guests. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Got there BEFORE dinner crowd on Thurs evening as we had a 1 yr old. Sat us in a corner were there was construction and sanding going on behind a draped curtain. Many other tables avail as most were seated outside. Within a few mins we were being dusted rather heavily and asked to be moved. They moved us over one table. Seemed little befuddled and never really apologized. Otherwise service was good BUT was really taken aback that no one seemed concerned that the dust was getting into area where food and drinks were being served and we were sitting with a baby!! I have a gift card for them and will not go back!"
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "The Coastal Kitchen consistently proves to be on their "A+" game in regards to the fantastic fresh ingredients, warm and genuine service and unparalleled views! We have well travelled clients that are equipped with seasoned palates. Great job Coastal Kitchen!!! "
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "Excellent food-try the Dirty Oysters!!! The redfish was fantastic and the service was even better. Great view of the river and marina as the sun was setting. I would go there again today if I lived on St. Simons, but will definitely visit next trip. "
