    Family of 6 dined at CK. The food was very good. One disappointment was the hush puppies are not authentic. Otherwise everything from salads and salad dressings to fried shrimp, crab cakes, stuffed flounder AND desserts were outstanding. The wItress was 5-star unflappable in response to requests and taking orders from a large group. Price-wise the CK is on par with many if the local mass seating establishments on the island (and you know them well)... But the food is a cut above, except for hush pups.

    We loved everything about our meal. Clean and nice ambiance, service was fantastic- kind staff and fast service, knowledgeable about gluten allergy and accommodating, great view, kids menu with crayons etc. (TVs in the bar if you wanted to see a game) We went early at 5:45 and took our 16 month old- she loved looking at the boats. Our table had the grouper, red fish, and flounder and they were all delicious. My favorite was the grouper with a glass of vinho verde. I've heard the lobster nachos are a must but we forgot to order them. We will definitely go back soon.

    We have eaten all over St. Simon's Island and took friends to Coastal Kitchen for dinner. Had a table with water view and our friends loved the fried shrimp. Redfish was also dynamite! Would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

    To start-- a rare bar out of oysters? Not good. The food was fine-- just nothing special- which was unexpected as some reviews were so good. I might try again, but other SSI options are better.

    We chose Coastal Kitchen for our 51st wedding anniversary dinner. Having been previous diners, we expected a fine meal at a reasonable price and were not disappointed. Our guests for the occasion had not dined here before but, following their meal, said they would definitely return.

    The food was bland and not unique. The server was very disengaged and not attentive, she practically ran away from the table to minute you answered her question. We ordered a cocktail in the bartender made them very light because she knew she didn't have enough in the bottle to make two drinks. Yet when we ordered another round she tried it again. Then she came by the table they say they had run out of that liquor and she was trying to stretch it. For the quality of the food it was overpriced. We selected this restaurant based on reading the menu online the fact that it was on the water in the menu looked creative. Will not recommend to anyone and we will not return.

    Dined on 8/22/2014
    I agree with the almost unanimous acclaim for this place. I've eaten here for years and feel that, overall, it's probably the best place on St. Simons. However, my impression is that the menu has remained much the same for a long, long time. Yes, the Low Country Paella is good, the Wild Georgia Shrimp and Grits is good, etc., etc., but things are beginning to strike me as a bit stale. I'm not a particularly venturesome diner, so if I'm noticing a lack of innovation others must be also. I would hate to see this attractive restaurant rest on its laurels; things can run downhill awfully fast.

    We always try to dine at Coastal Kitchen when we visit SSI. We usually try to eat outside but the heat kept us indoors this time. Food and service was excellent. It was a little noisy due to happy hour being just over, but an enjoyable evening was had by all, as usual.

    Arrived 15 minutes early for an 8:00 p.m. reservation. Only one bartender for the busy restaurant and the packed bar area. Took a while to order a drink. At 8:15 when no one came to get us to be seated, we checked in again because it was evident they forgot about us. Finally at the table, our waiter Steve was great and his service was very good. The dishes were rich and tasty. Would eat there again.

    We made 8:30 reservations for dinner on a Saturday night with 2 young kids. We were seated close to that time and had a great waitress. She put in the kids' orders and brought them out in no time which was super helpful while we were able to enjoy the evening. Our dinner was delish- fried shrimp and the shrimp and scallops and we ordered the ice cream for everyone for dessert which is definitely homemade and sooo good! We were actually pulling back up at the condo when the restaurant called to tell us we'd forgotten one of the kid's diaper bags! One thing to note... when we walked in the door it took a couple minutes to find someone to acknowledge us. Once that was done everything else was good!

    The snapper was probably the best fish my husband and I have ever had! Also, the tuna appetizer was extraordinarily good! We had reservations and were seated promptly. Although the restaurant was quite crowded, we did not feel rushed (to the contrary - and the only negative that we had - we waited about 30 minutes after we were seated before we were asked for our drink/wine order) But all in all, we had a very pleasant evening!

    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.
