Reservations are definitly necessary at this dining venue. I was not appreciative of Open Table to only have High Top as an option when more than enough regular tables were available. Excellent hostess was able to sit us at a regular table near with a water view. Caution on these Plastic Igloo options. Tons of germs leaching within these balls of possible disease. Seen them at some dining options. No thank you!!

Enjoyed dining out during Covid for my daughter’s birthday. Tables were spaced with a good deal of distance. Our waitress was excellent, pleasant and timely on the evening of January fourteenth. The appetizers were delicious as were our seafood dinners. There was no room left for dessert!
This was my first time dining out during Covid. We felt very safe. We will return again. Thank you.

As most can expect, you’re paying mostly for the location. The food is very good, not great. It’s entirely too dark inside the restaurant but I get it, they’re going for additional ambience. We did go on one of their candlelit nights which would certainly explain it. The waiter was attentive at first but as they got busier he became significantly more sparse. Overall the quality of food is very good, the location is top notch and I would recommend it for a special occasion.

We have dined at CG House for years and we have never been disappointed in any way. The menu is interesting, yet small enough to offer an excellent serving in whatever you choose. The Brussel sprouts appetizer is fantastic and full of flavor. The linguini with clams dish is always a favorite choice and the fresh parsley adds a nice touch. Our special dessert is the bread pudding with bananas and it is refreshing and not overly sweet. If you go on a Tuesday, wine bottles are 30% reduced. Our next excursion will be to try the igloos that are on the patio facing the ocean. What could be better than a New England dinner in the outdoors overlooking the water!!

Waited 15 minutes for Erin, our server, to greet the table. Another 10 for drinks. Server kept saying she would be right out with bread because it was in oven. It didn’t arrive until after we had to ask for it when our entrees arrived. She seemed to be in the back of the house more then she was on the floor taking care of her tables. On a positive note, the food was amazing as it always is.

As usual the Coast Guard house was outstanding! Our waiter (Michael) was beyond courteous, engaging and top-notch. The menu was terrific; we had the Beet Salad special and Calamari and the Crab Cakes for appetizers...they were sensational. I opted for the Lobster Ravioli and my wife had the Sole; we finished with desert cocktails and chocolate cake. We had a beautiful window view of the ocean and the atmosphere was quiet and enjoyable as my wife and I could spend a special day while talking without loud distractions. We have decided to make this a monthly stop and even with the COVID measures, it was an enjoyable and relaxing dining experience.

The Coast Guard House is our favorite splurge restaurant, and we have never had a bad meal there. The decorations for Christmas were absolutely beautiful with more lit candles than I can ever remember seeing there. The atmosphere was so festive and elegant. We had the filet and lobster hash special, and it was beyond delicious. Our waiter was friendly, prompt, and professional. The manager noticed we had switched seats and that I had my jacket over my shoulders and came over to ask if we'd like to move. The table where were seated had a draft because of its location and because the door was opening a lot due to the outdoor "bubbles." We did move and were much more comfortable. The shrimp cocktail was exquisite, but the calamari was a tiny bit underdone. I had a yummy dessert drink as well as a Cosmo, and both were perfectly made. We hadn't been out to a restaurant in so long, and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening from start to finish.

Always enjoy our experience at the Coast Guard House, especially so in the winter time when it is somewhat quieter, and ensures a seat by the window to enjoy the ocean view. Our waitress, Jess, was friendly and attentive. The food was wonderful!

We had a great dining experience on 12-30, just what we needed during these difficult times. The seafood pasta combined with the Brussel Sprouts was outstanding. We look forward to our next visit to the Coast Guard house in 2021.

The wait staff was great. The food was good except I didn’t care for my crab cakes; needed some heat and they were served on top of guacamole which just ruined it for me. 😝

Outstanding! So lovely. The holiday decor is gorgeous at night. Candles and and white lights everywhere. Really beautiful. We sat in the dining room and there was a bright, full moon reflecting off of the ocean, which made it extra special. Cannot beat the view here. The service was excellent. Very professional and attentive. Thank you, Michael. Our meal was delicious. Crab cakes, calamari, NY strip, clam chowder. All wonderful and I had the best margarita I have ever had (Blackberry), literally. The best I've had. My husband also loved his blood orange Mule. Always a great experience here. We love it.

Amazing! The atmosphere was unbeatable with clean lines, dim lights, dark wood, ocean views, and staff in uniforms. Classy! The food was paired so well by the eclectic, reasonably priced, and delicious drinks. Service was also above average and the server we had was simply the best we have had in 2020. If you come, try the Lobstah Mac and cheese - you will not be disappointed!

David , our server , was great! He was attentive and personable. Our foodwad fabulous! I am not a stuffy fan since they can tend to be bland but not the ones we got here! I had the pasta special- seafood pasta and it was a generous portion (had to take it home) and the baby bok choy- delicious! Two of us had the clams and linguine and they were very well seasoned and prepared. My sister had the pork loin- she was raving about it. Another guest was vegan and David was able to make knowledgeable recommendations. She enjoyed her portobello burger and veggies. The ambiance was charming and relaxing with candle light providing a romantic vibe; a delightful evening for all of us. We’ll be back whenever we can! We live in Charleston,Sc which has its own share of award winning restaurants so we know the drill.
