The ambience is unbeatable! Right on the beach, large outdoor area for eating with upscale furniture and umbrellas. Indoor seating very nice with wide unobstructed outdoor views. Easy parking on a Tuesday T noon.
Road construction delayed our arrival by 10 minutes and as a courtesy, we called several times to notify but received a long voice message and no real person. Upon arrival, we were seated quickly but no acknowledgement from the hostess that we had a reservation or that it was a special occasion.
Our server, Brian was attentive and brought a complimentary birthday dessert after the meal.
The food was fine but not outstanding. We all had the lobster roll with fried green tomato and bacon. Sounded delicious and very creative but was compromised with heavy mayonnaise. Fries were lukewarm.
Nice wine list and reasonable pricing.
Would definitely return for outdoor seating and another try with the menu items. The bar area would be fun and they have nice 2nd story lounge and deck that opens at 4 pm.
$8 gate fee for Sea Pines

(( have been to Coast many times in the past few years. This time I was very disappointed in the food selection and the service. I usually get the lobster ravioli and shrimp in a saffron sauce. It was not on the menu this time. We had to ask what the specials were. My husband was going to order one of them and was later tld it was unavailable. We had to find our waitress and let her know we were ready to order. We asked if one of the soups contained fish - she was going to check with the chef. Nd never hit back to us. We were a table of four eating inside, we ended up ordering 2 lobster rolls (which were mediocre at best), fish tacos and a burger. Lobster rolls were brought to the table a good 10 minutes before the rest of the food which I find totally unacceptable. Probably will not be returning there anytime soon.

For the amount of money that was spent not worth it. Poor waiter. Large bag for two little dinners got a steak no offer of a steak Knife. Wine was very expensive and a minimal amount. Dessert place upstairs was closed. The outside was unlite and unwelcoming. Website was not up to date would have changed the whole reservation. Dust cloths on a shelf for viewing. Reservations were at 730pm they were 15 minutes late getting table ready. Waiter was not around didnt ask or read specials we had to ask for them.

We come to Hilton Head at least once a year- we come to Coast our first and last nights when we are here- the food is amazing and consistent and the ambiance is unbelievable- overlooks the Atlantic and they have entertainment outside- upstairs or downstairs- inside or outside - is always perfect- our favorite waitress is Amanda- we love her- she’s seasonal ( like Hilton Head generally) and she will be going back to Jamaica to see her family- we hope to see her again soon!! Thank you to the Coast staff ( and Wonderful Chef) and of course Amanda! Sad to go home but look forward to coming back!! “Charley “ and George

The only reason to go here is the view. This was maybe the most overpriced meal we have ever had. My Seafood Pasta was definitely from a can - the lobster meat (claws only) was unbelievably dry and the, so called, marinara sauce truly tasted like Chef Boyardee (no exaggeration needed). This $36 dish wouldn't be worth it at $15. Same with the oysters - $35 per dozen and they were the runniest, soggiest oysters we've ever gotten. The "specialty" margarita wasn't bad, just heavily overpriced. Our server was very new but he was trying and he was very polite.

The view, however, is amazing. Go here for sunset, have a drink or two, then grab something to eat elsewhere.

Be advised, its located in a gated community and you have to pay $8 just to get in.

Food as usual was wonderful. However, the service was horrible. The waiter basically only took our main course order and brought the bill. With regards to the order, we ordered wine but he input champagne into the computer. Secondly, the bill had various errors. I had to have a manager fix it because he did not know what he was doing.

Enjoyed a nice lunch on the beach. Labor Day weekend. Food fresh, good cocktail & wine list. There was live entertainment- the band was talented but the music was better suited for a big beach party. Service was a little slow. A criticism would be better trained hosts to learn how to seat people.

Location is fabulous, right at the edge of the beach. We sat on the couches outside which were very comfortable. The only problem was at the lower angle we were sitting we couldn't see the beach because the fence obscured our view. That's why I dropped a star. Live music was an added touch. We had our 2 year old granddaughter with us and didn't have to worry about any noise she made or her penchant for wanted to wander around. We will definitely go back but sit at a table next time.

I was so thankful our hotel recommended we eat upstairs in the lounge to take advantage of the great view through the large windows. It was the only thing that saved this experience. We started with calamari which came very small and slightly overcooked because the pieces were so small. The accompanying dip had no flavor at all beyond sour cream. I had the tornados for my entree - very small, covered in what tasted like gravy -- not any chef made sauce. My husband had a fish combo plate and said it was somewhat better than mine. I had meant this for a belated anniversary dinner but we found a place with much better food the next night. I suggest you order only the simplest of dishes here -- very disappointing.
