The monthly candle light dinners are delightful and a wonderful idea. The wine selection can accommodate all price points and the drinks are excellent. The linquini and clam sauce is one of the best and full of clams. I would go there just to have their bread sliced in small, manageable slices served with sweet butter. The desserts are always appealing and delicious and we usually share one. Our server, Megan was so pleasant and efficient, even on a busy night. We've already made our reservations for the new few candle light nights!

When they advertise sea food, sea fiends, sea view they are spot on. Great place for all three.

Have been here for lunch and it was very good. Went recently for dinner. And although the service was good the food was served cold. Had to send it back to the kitchen to be heated while my husband ate his dinner.

Beautiful restaurant & lounge overlooking Narragansett Bay and Town Beach!! Great service in an "energetic" and friendly atmosphere. During the summer months the outdoor patio areas and upstairs/roof bars are a 'must visit'...and the CGH staff is always on point!!

Choice of Chardonnays by glass not very good, though La Crema was available by bottle; Wm Hill would also be a nice choice. Lobster Mac and cheese was very dry, just tasting of buttered bread crumbs on the Mac; ample lobster. Lobster bisque very good. Scallops were very fresh and tasty, but slivers of leek, etc. and watery sauce made it hard to eat. Grilled vegetables very tasty and unusual. No Caesar salad on menu, though online, and scallops online were shown with polenta and I think tomato jam, much better than the current scallop version. Server Elizabeth was a delight.

My sister wanted to eat seafood while we were visiting family. She looked on her phone and found Coast Guard House. She also wanted a restaurant where we could see the ocean. Coast Guard House fit the bill and we enjoyed our food and time there.

We went to the monthly Candle Light dinner and the restaurant looked lovely. We enjoyed wine, delicious linguini & clams, and 2 tremendous desserts. I am always appreciative that the chef let's me switch to penne and goes easy on the garlic, per my request. We have already booked next month's Tuesday Candle Light dinner!

We always love coming to the Coast Guard House as it is consistently great. We ordered the halibut, the monkfish, the pork special and the lobster ravioli. All were great except for the lobster ravioli which is usually great. The pasta was very undercooked and the sauce was too strong with the flavor of sherry. The lobster inside was ground up and not appealing in taste or texture.
We always enjoy the Brussel sprouts and all the appetizers. The bread pudding was good!
Will be back!

Coast Guard House has been on our list of places to try since we toured The Towers for my daughters wedding. She has since decided not to be be married at The Towers; she is doing a small backyard wedding next year; but I decided to take her and a few others,for a special birthday lunch. Boy were we all so happy with our meals, ambiance, view, on and on and on. We will definitely be back and will recommend to everyone!

We have been to the Coast Guard Restaurant several times, mostly for lunch. This was our “date night” and we were unfortunately seated at a corner table near a party of 12 very loud voices. We asked for a table switch and the staff came to our immediate aid. We then had a nice little table near the bar where the volume was more tolerable. Food was excellent, portions just right. Service was good and friendly.

We had a problem making our original reservation time and they held the table for us so we didn’t have to rush SO KIND. Food was divine but that’s a given here. Server was knowledgeable, made us comfortable and never interrupted us when talking, our every need was met. When first went in music was a bit loud as speaker was near table Asked serverif it could be lowered which he handled without skipping a beat. Valet service was perfect as usual Polite and courteous Another great experience
