Having eaten here many times before, a little disappointed with today's hostess, sat my party of 3 at a table that literally just left, table was not wiped down, the table and chairs were not disinfected as per protocol per covid-19 and state guidelines.
It was nice to see the server noticed this and prepped the table for use....glad to say all 3 of us have been vaccinated....or the coast guard house would of been my first phone call, and then the health dept to inform them of the lack of cleanliness before flipping table's.

Was great to get back to to the Coast Guard House. We dined out for dinner on the patio - on the railing - and the weather made for a terrific evening. Service was top notch, including the heater the waiter kindly placed next to our table. Our party of 5 all had different starters and main course and all were nicely displayed and delicious. Looking forward to going back next weekend - already reserved for lunch!

I have always enjoyed going to the Coast Guard House. Wonderful food, location and atmosphere. Last night was the first time I can say I did not enjoy my meal. It was overpriced, cold, and overcooked. That said, the waitress was extremely attentive and pleasant. I understand prices had to be modified to stay afloat after COVID restrictions and staffing challenges many restaurants are facing. I am hoping this was just a "bad" night as staffing gets orgainzed to serve the influx of patrons. I have a reservation for next week and expect things to be "back to normal".

Waiter forgot we were there. Table came in after us, had drinks and food before we were even asked for our drink order which was 20 minutes later. My Cosmo was lousy. Hardly any cranberry juice. Lobster bisque is fabulous as we're the cherrystone clams. The shrimp pasta dish had red pepper and mint in it so I asked if they could leave it out from my order. Turned out the sauce was pre-made, so no. I then chose a hot buttered lobster roll. The FF were good. The butter that came on the side was brown. Some sort of spice was in it. Waiter said that was the butter they keep the lobster in. The lobster was dry and hard. We had such great expectations for this renowned restaurant. It fell short on all levels, except the view.

Waitress outstanding. Food was delicious and of course the view lovely. A bit noisy so would suggest to almost turn the background music off so diners can converse to be heard as when the restaurant is busy, the noise level rises considerably.

Very good. Coast Guard is above average in price but what you get for service, food, and location/view is worth so much more. I’m a bit of a wine snob and Coast Guard House has an over the top selection of wines. They have a modest well rounded menu with not one bad choice. If I could critique a charcuterie board would add to it! Excellent choice for pop in lunch by the shore to special night out. We love it!

Fantastic view & ambiance thanks to the ocean & the "Candlelight Night" (where the restaurant is decorated by candle light & beautiful elements & settings)! There were 6 of us who ordered all different meals & everyone was happy with their choices (from steaks to pasta to seafood) & that includes great cocktails & dessert too. A special hat tip to our server Thomas, who was accommodating, gracious & knew about alpha-gal syndrome (red meat allergy from tick bites). He, along with the chef, was key to one of us having a specially-made dinner made for her with no fuss at all. We couldn't have had a better dining experience & highly recommend the Coast Guard House!

We had a great time, wonderful view.
Only drawback was it was VERY noisy, hard to hear someone at your own table.
Otherwise, it was great.
