  • "Had your halibut this weekend. One of the best preparations I've ever had! Other 3 in our group were also raving about their fish. Will continue to be loyal. Sorry we missed Josh this time. He's usually good for some laughs."

  • "I will return and bring more Marietta friends with me. Charming place, great menu choices and exemplary food. If you're looking for an appetizer with lox, they have it. The lobster bisque was to die for...creamy, meaty and foodies will recognize the intricate flavors. I need more. bisque. My friend ordered one of the most beautiful and generous Cobb salads I've ever seen. I wanted to help her with it ;-) Our waiter, Shaun, was uber-friendly and welcoming (and pretty cute I must say)."

  • "My family took me here for my B'day. They are all seafood lovers. I am not. I had a great steak our 9 year old son had some delicious chicken fingers and the rest of the family enjoyed a whole bunch of shrimp. My Mother-in-law said it was some of the best shrimp she has eaten and she is a connoisseur of sea food. Our waiter was excellent . It was an overall great birthday meal."

  • "My wife and I visited this for the second time on July 15. The seafood was very fresh, well prepared, and the server was very knowledgeable. It's very unusual to find a restaurant of this caliber in Georgia that isn't in Buckhead or Little Five Points - but here it is, out in the country (relatively.) If you want big city foodie cuisine in a small town locale, this is a place to visit!"

  • "Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and it was great! Food was excellent and service was even better. Our desserts were on the house in honor of our anniversary! Not your run of the mill restaurant. Seafood was fresh and very well prepared."

  • "we had the lobster - chose the cracked option that came with a salad. Salad was just OK. It was brought to our table of 4 in very small bowl to share with no serving utensil. We did ask for a refill. Dinner came soon after refill and our lobster was very good - but very very small. We were told before ordering it was just around 1 lb. We left the restaurant hungry and not feeling we just had a great meal with great service like previous times we had visited."

  • "This is one of our favorite restaurants OTP. The seafood quality is always excellent, and the preparation makes it even better. Don't pass up the lobster bisque; it is so flavorful and full of lobster chunks that you can almost make a meal out of it."

  • "Goin' Coastal always delivers. Our dinner on Saturday night was excellent. We are so glad that this famous restaurant is in Canton where we live. The service is great too. One of the things we like the most is that we are never rushed when we go there. We highly recommend Goin' Coastal for the best seafood around."

  • "I rarely ever clear my plate- so when I do you know it's good. I got the fried shrimp and French fries and ate all of it- it was delicious!! Probably the best fried shrimp I've had"

  • "Good food and good service as always. The ticket times, though very long in the past, have steadily decreased over time. Our time from ordering to food arrival was less than 15 minutes on this most recent visit."

  • "Great place for a special occasion or every day dining... Appetizers are a must. Steaks melt in your mouth and the sea food selection was outstanding. Being a small place it was a little noise but was worth the experience. The waiters and waitresses were the best. This was our 1st time and we will definitely go back."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Arrived at 5:45 pm. Not very busy. Still took over 10 minutes to get a waiter. Another 15 min to get our drinks. Ordered a bottle of wine and then was brought the wrong bottle. Didnt notice until after it was opened. Will give this place another try because the food was great, just an off night for our server. I hope."

  • "All three of us had the Arctic Char, the special which was highly recommended by our fabulous waiter Michael. We ohed and awed our way through our meals. The fish was cooked perfectly and the bed of field peas upon which it sat was a perfect complement."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "We love this restaurant. Every time we go we ask ourselves why we keep from going more often. The food is marvelous. The staff is friendly. The service is attentive without the overbearing interruption of restaurants that try too hard to pretend they care if "everything is alright". On top of it all, the owner truly pays attention to sustainability in the fish he offers. Always a pleasant visit."

  • "Went to celebrate my birthday with my dad. We made a reservation for 6:30 and while we are usually on time, we ran about 15 minutes late and nothing was said to us. We still got a window seat, great service and great food. I don't think I can pick a favorite dish from this place either. Everything I have had over the three visits has been outstanding."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "The King Salmon from Alaska's Copper River was the special and the preparation was excellent. Paired with a Cuvaison Chardonnay, couldn't have been a better or more satisfying evening. And always a pleasure having Mike as our server."

  • "How great to have such interesting and carefully-prepared dishes with high-quality ingredients right in our backyard. Can't wait to get back."

  • "On our anniversary we scheduled an early dinner (5:00P) at Goin' Coastal. It was perfect. The food and service were outstanding, as expected, and the noise level was much lower than at peak serving hours. A memorable occasion."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "We ate there last night; and since our son was coming to town the next day, my wife decided to introduce him and his wife to Goin' Coastal. They were both very pleased with their dinner and will undoubtably return on their own since they live within a reasonable distance. The food and service here is consistently good. We are never disappointed."

    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Can't believe there is a restaurant this good in Canton! Eat there. The Lobster Pot Pie Fritters are one of the best things I've ever tried, the scallops were arguably the best scallops I've ever had, the NY strip was local and basically of prime quality, coffee crusted and cooked to perfection. Oysters Rockefeller not exactly traditional but quite delicious. We will be trying their neighboring establishment, Downtown Kitchen, soon, in hopes that it offers the same level of quality and service."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We heard good things about this restaurant so we wanted to give it a try. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and helped us to choose a meal we knew we would enjoy (though I don't think we could have gone wrong). We both had scallops as part of our dish, and they were by far the best scallops we have ever had. They were so tender and cooked perfectly. Can't we to go back!"

  • "We ended up in a traffic nightmare so I called to change the reservation from 6 to 6:30. They acted annoyed said they would try to make it work. We got there at 6:30 and there were about 10 empty tables. It did get busier but never while we were there was there even a wait for a table. Seems they could have been nicer about the reservation time change. The salad and corn muffins weren't great. Our meals were good. We would definitely go back but we were expecting more."

  • "Great spot in downtown Canton. Service was good. Food was excellent. I had the blackened yellowfin and my husband had steak. Both were "melt in your mouth delicious." Had oysters too. Plan to spend 100-150 for a complete dinner for 2."

  • "Consistently the best seafood option around. Always fresh, cooked perfectly, and obtained from sustainable sources. We love $5 oyster night (Wednesday). The chocolate pie made by Zach's mom is perfect finish to a great meal."

  • "Chef prepares excellent courses, service is good but a little slow. But the biggest detractor is the booths, they are the most uncomfortable booths I ever sat in. The backs are to vertical and they are not solid enough. You can feel every time the person behind you moves or takes a breath. Either build new comfortable booths or remove them and put in tables. "
