I greatly appreciated eating at the table that I requested. Our waiter was great but seemed to be spread thin because he was waiting on tables on the other side.

The atmosphere and view are perfect. Our server was very attentive without being intrusive. She really knew the menu and was able to make recommendations confidently. The food was very good but for the price, I would like to see a few more vegetables with a steak. Overall, a beautiful spot and quiet venue for a winter's dinner.

We enjoy Coast Guard House year 'round but especially in the off season. Sunday brunch is awesome and one of us is vegetarian and the other pescatarian- so we really appreciate the fact that brunch menu has a number of vegetarian options.

We took my daughter for her 20th birthday celebration. Her choice. It’s a bright lively classy place with good food and a wonderful view of Narragansett Bay. The risotto special with duck confit was really incredible. And the portion was so big that I took home at least half of it. The fish tacos were delicious and the fish and chips is as good as fish and chips should be.

Our waitress was friendly and attentive without being cloying. And they were happy to bring out our surprise birthday cake and plate it for us.

Great place!

This was my first visit to Coast Guard House. We are new to the area, but considered it to be "too expensive" and hadn't tried it. Had guests from out of town that we wanted to impress, so made reservation for Coast Guard House. Greeted at reception like a long-time important guest, seated at a beautiful table with gorgeous view, great choices (including vegetarian) on menu, great service throughout meal. And... the bill was reasonable! So we will be back, with guests, or just ourselves for more enjoyable meals at Coast Guard House. Thanks to everyone for a great day.

We lover Coastguard House in the summer. Went with some family in late November and the food quality was not fresh as you get in the summer time. We are taking this restaurant off our list for the fall and winter. Too bad as we are local residents of Narragansett and CH should focus on better quality food in the off season to carry them through the winter.

Food was pedistrian. It took 20 minutes before a wait came to our table and then only after I went to the hostess and asked for one. Sat us in a table far form the windows despite several open tables perhaps due to the quiet table request which I might believe except we were sat next to a table of 14 half of whom were out of control 10-12 years olds!

Went for dinner for the first time in several years, I remember it being very classy and upscale so I was confused when we were given paper menus when seated in the dining room. They reminded me of a typical lunch menu you'd get sitting out on a porch. The calamari was terrible, the filet was excellent. Overall I was pretty disappointed and most likely wont come back.

Only our second time here, and the overall experience was once again wonderful! First, our server was able to let me taste the different Pinot Grigios I couldn't decide on, her description was spot on, and I ended up picking the cheaper glass of wine. The muscles and broth I could never get sick of . . . The taste is a perfectly balanced wine to briny taste. The lobster mac & chees was also life changing!! My dish, however, was not. It was a chef special of lazy-mans lobster over a saffron brothed linguini, sounded great, looked amazing, not executed well. .. There was little flavor in the broth and the tail was tough. I dont have the heart to send food back just because it's mediocre, and will not order it again. Finally, dessert was a delicious oatmeal bread pudding with caramel drizzle, again, life changing (I'm a chocoholic after all!!), and the coffee drink topped off a lovely evening.

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!
