  • "loved it the last time we went there, this time we had the most inattentive waiter I have ever had, we did get them to change waiters to an excellent one, but the night was already ruined"

  • "So I've been coming here for the better part of 15 years... Beautiful view of Wooleys pond and a great experience everytime... Pepper crusted Tuna is amazing and the specials are always a big WOW"

  • "I had dinner recently at the Coast Grill. I really liked the ambiance. There is a lovely view of the boats in the marina next door. The Hamptons have become so airbrushed these days that it was nice being in a place that had more of a casual, old-fashioned feel. The service was caring and professional. The only problem was that the food was just not that good. We split the crab meat appetizer, and then had the seared sesame tuna and the roast chicken. None of it was that great. What was good was the banana chocolate bread pudding that we split for dessert. We went on lobster night, but did not order the lobster. That may have been our big mistake. It may be one of those places where you have to know what to order."

  • "We ate at this restaurant years ago and was pleased then. However, it's no longer worth the expense. The service was very slow and the food was only mediocre. We asked for more bread and never got it. We will not be back."

  • "We ordered fluke and salmon. Both were bland with no taste or seasoning. Price did not match the meal."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "The restaurant was out of all the food I want. No crab, no branzino and no chicken! I ordered a salad with goat cheese and they replaced it with blue cheese without even telling me. The filet mignon was cold and hard and the paella was dry. I would never dine here again. The waiter was also awful. The service was very lacking and the manager could care less. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!"

  • "A great place for fantastic seafood. I've been coming to this restaurant for over 25 years and I'm always very pleased. Nice people without the oppressive "Hampton's scene!""

  • "Saturday night, it was busy but we did not have to wait for our table. Service was good, food tasty and although it was a bit noisy the beautiful sunset made up for it. A lovely evening."

  • "Haven't been here in 15 years, it will be one of my favorites. We wanted the chef's choice, but the Brian (the chef)came out & told us it wasn't available on Fridays & Saturdays, but he would make it up to us by splitting our orders so we could taste several dishes. He was wonderful & the food & service were fabulous. We had lobster spaghetti, oysters, caesar salad, branzino, sherbet & a wonderful chocolate dish. Everything was spot on."

  • "On Wednesday for $25 you have a very good choice of appetizer and entree plus a glass of wine. The crab cakes were all crab and the fluke was perfectly cooked. Only criticism I had is that I would have preferred a little more sauce on both dishes. great view and good service."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "This is our favorite restaurant . We are never disappointed. Had lobster, short ribs , lobster ravioli, mussels, the crab cake is the best!!! Cant say much more than that. Its simply a great restaurant."

  • "Even on a busy holiday weekend you can count on Coast Grill to always serve delicious food with good service. If you haven't been to this restaurant for awhile, check it out.. A good Hamptons "go to" choice."

  • "Boisterous local spot with an active bar scene with a marina setting. Food is generally good although on this occasion the salad came with brown lettuce. Service is ok but does not anticipate needs. Prices on the high side for given the type of restaurant"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Good seafood choices as expected with the paella very good. We ate early at 6:45 pm and the restaurant was more than half full within half an hour. Tables are too closely packed and if there had been 4 of us I don't know how we would have fitted in. As the tables were so close the noise level was also high so the trick is to go early here.."

  • "We have eaten here 4 times this season and each time it has been wonderful. Lobster night mussels appetizer. Cooked perfectly. Great experience"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "This is our third time this season and it is always a pleasure to dine there. We went for Lobster Night on Monday and had a whole lobster and the Lobster Spaghetti. Appetizers and entree's were excellent"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "We have enjoyed Brian's cooking for the past 5 or 6 summers. Without Stacy managing the front things were all out of sync. I was served my main dish too quickly and had no silverware. Couldn't find a waiter for 7 minutes and had to get up. Also the parking lot was very snarled up. So.... Please please get your act together! New menu was inovative and delicious."

  • "Have not been back to the Coast Grill in a number of years. Heard there were new owners so we gave it a shot. The meal was flawless! I had the short ribs and half of my wife's salad - really excellent. My mother in law had lobster spaghetti - again - really fantastic. My wife had the tuna tartar appetizer - excellent. We had pinot grigio - and like the fact we had a good sized glass with a good amount of wine - we hate the measured glass that so many restaurants do today - service was efficient and unobtrusive."

  • "First time at coast grill. The food was fabulous and the service was amazing. Table of eight of us and served perfectly. The entire evening was beyond most summer Hampton restaurants. In quality of food, amazing staff and creative menu! It's a repeat for us. Thanks"

  • " A lovely waterfront gem overlooking a marina.Great service was friendly and very attentive. My husband's crab cake was light and delicious...all crab. My arugula/apple/bacon salad was very refreshing as was my daughter's bacon Caesar salad. My husband loved his veal bolognese and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed her filet mignon and ate every bit of it. My bronzino was served as a whole fish, beautifully presented with a medley of artichoke, fennel and other vegetables. Delicious. My only minor criticism was that the Key Lime Tart, which we shared.It seemed to be missing the lime. It was a nice custard dessert , but not even a hint of lime. I think it was somebody's goof and since I am dieting, I wasn't too upset by it."

  • "This has become our go-to place both for ourselves and for guests. Their salads are wonderful and the short ribs with coca-cola sauce keep bringing us back."

  • "I had eaten here before and the food is good. This time, however, it felt cramped. Not sure if extra tables were added, but it was tight. The view can't be beat. Don't waste your time on the calamari. It is not cooked well and the dipping sauce is tasteless. Quite disappointed. The special, however, was quite good which was fluke stuffed with crab. It was very tasty. "

  • "We've visited this restaurant before and had good experiences each time: pretty view, reasonable noise level, excellent food, and accommodating staff. This time (Saturday evening), it was overcrowded and the noise intolerable. We (4 adults) waited 30 minutes past our reservation time to be seated, and were then escorted to a small table that was so close to others that the staff had trouble reaching us. We waited again to order. When it finally arrived, the food barely fit. We didn't stay for dessert. The hostess seemed indifferent to our concerns when we told her. My overall rating is "Fair" only because of the quality of the food. It's unlikely we'll come back on a weekend. Shame on Coast Grill for what must have been overbooking."

  • "Typical shore restaurant. Bushes block a pretentious view of the bay. Good service, food was ok.... need a more extended wine list. Expected fresh prepare meals... No heat up! "

  • "The food is always great. What else can you say. It's one of the best restaurants on the East End. "

  • "We went there specifically for the coca cola braised short ribs. They were delicious, never needed a knife. Moist and tender, nice service. The entire menu is great and presentation is wonderful. Highly recommended"

  • "Located between Southampton and Sag Harbor, this seafood restaurant located on a scenic local dock with water views offers a pleasant experience that's both cheerful and hip while being away from the madding crowds of the rest of the Hamptons. An updated taste of the old coast grill experience that you cannot get in the villages or towns. Casual yet polished - and always welcoming whether you are a group of 8 or party of one. Terrific seafood focus with plenty of tasty accompaniments - again - for an upscale menu in a relaxed setting. I consider it a 'go to' when I tire of all the noise and hubbub of the Hamptons. I recommend it highly. "

  • "The maitre d' was rude. The waiter was not particularly helpful - and when my friend complained about her drink, the attitude was - too bad, that's how it is. The dinner was not particularly tasty and very expensive. A big disappointment!"

  • "My wife and I were staying in Amagansett for our 27th wedding anniversary and I saw there were various restauants participating in Hamptons Restaurnant Week. We selected the right place! Plentiful choices, delicious food, great cocktails and excellent service. We will be back."

  • "The setting is beautiful with the views over the pond and boats. The food was mostly very nice with generous portions. The service was also very goid. We visited during the restaurant week and it was a great value, but we felt that the dishes lacked some 'oomph' to justify high a la carte prices. I would probably return for the view if I were in Southampton and they had special prix-fix."

  • "My husband and I were in the Hamptons to celebrate our anniversary and made a reservation at Coast Grill. We got lost trying to find the restaurant, because it's on a back road and there are few signs or directions. When we got there, we were the only ones in the place - we were happy they stayed open for us and had a lovely meal, but we had gotten so worked up trying to find it, that it spoiled our celebratory mood. Maybe we'll go back sometime, if we ever get to the Hamptons again."

  • "Great out of the way spot with excellent food & service. My wife and I arrived early for our reservation so we sat at the bar, had a drink and chatted it up with a very friendly bartender. The prix fix menu was varied and it was all freshly made. Took a shot on the place since we weren't from the area, but we'd definitely go back in a heartbeat!"
