This is an excellent restaurant with excellent restaurant (high) prices. But we had some meal discount coupons from our week-long rental from Sea Pines, which made it more affordable. In warmer weather the glass wall is opened to the outdoor deck which has nice tables and a couple of fire pits, all in view of the sea.

The food and ambience were very good. Though I chose this place in hopes to enjoy the outdoor view but by 6:15 in November it was already night. The table for our party of 7 was placed at a lovely long table at the end of the singing room. It seemed special as we had a birthday that we were celebrating that night.
The food came out slow but I think there were only 2 servers on the floor.

The food exceeded our expectations. I ordered the sword fish and mad a special request for the chef to prepare it on the rare side so that it would not be dry and rubbery. He or she did it and it was great as well was the other fine dishes at the table.
Also our server was out standing. Very attentive and funny and focused on us having a great time.
This was our first visit and we will be back.

We had the BEST time at Coast! Amazing service, special perks for a birthday, and delicious food and drinks.

Paige was absolutely fantastic — we came back 2 nights in a row because she is so great. Can’t wait to be back soon, they took fantastic care of us!

Great beach front restaurant. View was amazing with lots of outdoor seating to enjoy it. Bar area is great with view of ocean and heaters for chilly evenings. Fire pits at tables are great. Indoor area is nice with coastal theme. Wait staff was great and food excellent. Will be back!

Beautiful setting is worth the moderately high prices and mediocre food. Shrimp salad was minced shrimp not big local shrimp. Lavash served with the salad was not fresh. Service is very good - 3 or 4 different people stopped by the table to ask if everything was OK. We eat a meal here every time we visit Hilton Head just for the view and ambiance.

Not Great Now - Coast is still a beautiful venue ... but we were disappointed with the limited menu and portion sizes. Definitely overpriced to competition in the area! Please note the service was great though.

Food was phenomenal but it was the worst service I have ever received. The waitress rolled her eyes every time someone at the table said something. She never once came back to refill our drinks and anything that is expected was not done until asked. She mumbled when she spoke to us and threw a fit when she walked away. Again food was great, my waitress should be fired.

Coast was what you would describe as an upscale dining spot at the Sea Pines Beach Club in Hilton Head. We had reservations through Open Table and we were seated right away. The view from our area wasn’t quite ocean view but if you sat in the outdoor bar area or on an upper level you could see the ocean. There was a guitarist singer that was really good and we enjoyed the entertainment. Our server came over and right away you could tell she was very inexperienced. If you dine out a lot you can certainly tell the difference. She was very quiet and polite but didn’t offer any recommendations and when we asked what came with a specific entree she just read the description right from the menu. She never came over and asked if we were enjoying our meal and didn’t say thank you or goodbye when we finished paying. We did enjoy the meal overall. The swordfish was excellent and the Gullah seafood and grits was also very good. The broiled oyster appetizer was a bit dry. We ordered the mashed potato side dish to share and they were delicious.

For a restaurant that charges an average $34 per entree, uses plastic wine glasses at dinner time and has untrained servers, the fine food and atmosphere make up for these details.

Plan on spending at least $150 for two entrees, appetizer, a side dish and wine.

We had high hopes. Reservation made for 6:30pm. We called to see if our reservation could be moved to 7 if possible however they couldn’t find our reservation. Not through the number or name. We would have kept the 6:30 since no 7 was available but according to them they didn’t have it and we’d have to make a new reservation. they could make a new one for 745, which we took. We got there and were seated promptly. It was beautiful . Took some time for the staff to attend but it was busy and they seemed to be working like mad. We ordered drink and several apps. Suddenly a someone came and dropped off apps that weren’t ours. We told our waitress and were worried ours wouldn’t come soon as we had waited awhile and were hungry thinking someone else got them. She said she’d check but if we wanted we could eat the wrong apps since they weren’t gonna serve them anyway. We bit into the shrimp and it was off. Very off. Smelled like bait and the taste was quite rancid. Told the waitress. She took the food away. By miracle our food came later and the crab claws were so overdone they were inedible. Our shrimp salad looked great and tasted ok but it had mayo and were concerned since the other shrimp was bad this one might be too. So we didn’t eat it. Manager was very friendly. Offered other menu items. We declined and he took the offending items off the bill. In the end we had cocktails and crackers for dinner. I wish it were better, since the staff was very nice and seemingly overworked. I hope they get it together.

Awesome outdoor dining setting. We sat on the second floor porch and had a virtually unencumbered view of the ocean at sunset.

Service was impeccable. The food was great and serving sizes were ample. A couple of dishes were large enough to provide take-home.

You cannot beat the beautiful, beachy ambience and amazing views, but the food and service in no way warrant the price. The food is mediocre at best, and the service is consistently under par. Sea Pines really needs to up their game when it comes to their restaurants.

If you're looking for a great ocean front restaurant, this is it!! We thoroughly enjoyed the large deck overlooking the beach, soft guitar player/singer, and the food was fantastic. I ordered the Shrimp/Crabmeat pasta which was excellent. Wonderful cream sauce. Waiter was very prompt and courteous and answered questions about the menu. Overall a wonderful evening out in Hilton Head

This is our favorite restaurant on the island. The food is always well prepared and delicious and the portions are a good size for the prices. The outdoor seating facing oceanfront can't be beat. We ate here twice this trip and will definitely go again next time we are on Hilton Head. Also would like to mention that every staff member we met, either wait staff or bartenders were friendly and made the experience very pleasant.
