Good food. Good service. Moderate prices. More casual than I thought it would be, and the noise level was pretty loud. Reservations definitely recommended.

Food was perfect. Service wasn’t great and was sporadic. We ordered two salads as appetizers. Mine was brought out by a busgirl . My dinner companion’s was not. Took forever to flag down anyone to tell them we were missing an appetizer. By the time my dinner companion got got hers, 20 minutes had passed! Sane issue with our drinks. My glass of wine would be brought out. But my companion’s vodka drink would not arrive at same time . Staggered all dinner. Very strange. Our waiter never proactively checked on us to see how we were doing. A lot of these mishaps could have been solved in a more timely manner if he had. The food when it did arrive was excellent . The poor service is only thing holding back a perfect rating.

Lobster with bacon sandwich was over flowing with lobster meat, regular lobster roll was awesome.chicken sandwich was perfect. Bloody Mary was not worth the money, presentation was awful, no vegetables at all in it, waste of money.

The restaurant is absolutely beautiful in a perfect spot. The food was OK but not great. The calamari appetizer was cooked way too much and was very chewy. The entrées were quite small but they were good. The service was excellent.

Although we enjoyed our experience we had 2 issues....#1 my wife wanted to substitute one veggie on the entree(filet) for another....the server stated he had to check with the chef. His response was that there would be a $3.00 upcharge which I found unusual, we werent asking for something special just a different veggie that was offered on another entree. My #2 issue and maybe it's just because of the Covid-19 epidemic, but I found the menu very limited in the offerings.

Atmosphere was very pretty however we were seated right in front of the kitchen which was noisy and distracting.

As always, Coast Guard House delivers the food, service, wine list, and ambiance! Really, our only complaint would be the cold drafts from doors opening and closing throughout - which was more than usual as they've got these really cool outdoor dining/cocktail domes on the deck! We didn't rent one, but we certainly see the appeal! (But, it meant a lot more traffic in and out by the servers taking care of the folks out there, which made it a bit drafty.)
That said, the food, service and view more than offset that minor thing, and we enjoyed a great Valentines Day dinner! We will continue to return - often!!

Thank you - great Valentine’s day lunch. Our family had a wonderful time. Thank you for honoring our family’s request for a table with a water view despite a busy day - I really appreciate it so much. And special thanks to Erin our server who went above and beyond to make sure we had a great day at Coast Guard House. See you soon :)

Location. Location. Location. The CGH has THE spot in Narragansett, but is not just the location that makes this place. The food was great and the staff was friendly and attentive. The only reason I gave a 4 star experience was the delay of my son's entrée. Next time we want to try one of their outside "bubble" tents!
