Goin' Coastal - Canton
Pricey but seafood is the star hereWe began with shrimp and corn chowder & lobster pot pie fritters. Plenty of tasty shrimp in the chowder, a deliciously seasoned base, but too many potatoes didn't help it. Lobster fritters were a great way to ruin lobster. Hubby ordered low country shrimp boil; it came with very large & excellent shrimp. Corn was good too. Rest of the meal was mediocre at best (sausage, potatoes). I ordered swordfish off the daily board, chose parmesan preparation; it was delicious, large portion cooked & seasoned perfectly. I asked for cheese grits instead of potatoes, & they were absolutely awesome. Homemade desserts change daily. We had a cheesecake option & choc. mousse. Both very good. I recommend ordering off chalkboard. Service was outstanding.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMust tryExtremely fresh seafood, gluten free options, reasonably priced. A must try!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find!My fiance and celebrated her birthday with dinner. Upon arriving we were seated immediately as we had reservations. The hostess was very nice and equally was our waitress. The ambiance was relaxed and the lighting just right. We commented on the bar area as large with high ceilings which allowed a roomier feeling.
I ordered the shrimp as did my fiance (with grits). It was very tasty and fresh. The wine was great and the beer was cold and the location was intown so that made it special.
I highly recommend it!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!We are working our way through the menu and have not had a bad meal yet. The tuna special was to die for.

Lots of people,Great food! Lots of people, bustling around. Wonderful atmosphere of a neighborhood bar and grille with the food of a five star fish eatery in a major metro area. I had the coastal style halibut which was amazing. My dinner companion has miso wahoo, another good one but I would not recommend it for those like me who prefer saltier savory dishes, but that was just the miso flavor as it is supposed to be. I am not a fan. Oysters were amazing we had Rockefeller. We will have the mussels when we go back! Which will definitely be soon.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, Fresh Seafood. GoodGreat, Fresh Seafood.

Nice variety and I particularly like the preparation options.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening!Casual atmosphere in a restored building. Yummy cocktails, delicious fresh seafood and excellent service. We tried the crab cakes and lobster pot pie fritters, some of the best crab cakes I have had South of Maryland. The Red Grouper was cooked to perfection and the shrimp and grits were delicious. The desserts are homemade by the owners Mom and delicious. They were selling out of everything which to me is a sign that everything is fresh.
2 small things - cocktails were served in different size glasses at the bar and table, hostess tried to seat us at a high top in the bar even though we had a reservation and noted it was for our anniversary.
We will go back!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Menu Options at Goin CoastalChef Zack Kell has again updated the menu with some delicious dishes such as scallops served over risotto. There were several fresh fish options available from the daily catch menu. If you have not visited the Canton location since their recent expansion, it is well worth a return visit. A new bar has been added with bar and table seating providing a more spacious area for dining and a before or after dinner beverage.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual the food was great.As usual the food was great.
