We sat outside. The view was lovely and there was a nice breeze. There was live music but a bit too loud for my taste. The musician was very talented and did a great job. The waitress was attentive and accommodating and answered our questions. The food was excellent, well prepared and tastefully presented. It was my birthday and they brought my desert with happy birthday candles.

Obviously great views. Server was very friendly, but service was very slow, especially from the bar. The food was not very good. Had the lobster loaded hush puppies, which were soggy hush puppies cut up in a bowl and covered with over-cooked bits of lobster and a rich, sweet sauce (excessively), the blackened shrimp nachos had stale chips and the shrimp were very tiny, but the seasoning tasted good. The drinks were good, but we had long waits. I am giving a high rating for the quality of the drinks, the friendly server and views/vibe. Live music was a nice touch and it was a beautiful day, so it was enjoyable to sit outside and enjoy the ocean views.

If you're headed to Hilton Head Island, be sure to put Coast on your list. We are admitted foodies- constantly scouring for the best in fine dining- but also dislike pretense or stuffiness. Coast was one of our happiest discoveries this past vacation. The view- looking out over the water- is gorgeous, the staff is attentive ( NOT suffocating or affected) and delightfully personable and WOW! When they say lobster hush puppies the emphasis is on LOBSTER (loads of the delicious critter)! Spectacular beginning to an even more wonderful meal. We didn't stay at that hotel or resort, indeed it was a drive from the other end of the island. But we made it... twice! And you can bet we'll be back. Thank you Coast!

Wonderful dinner and experience! Highly recommend the Sea Pines Resort wine, as well as the Tuna Nachos! My daughter loved the pecan pie and vanilla bean ice cream. Kate was a superb server! The manager, Nadia, was incredibly friendly, helpful and ensured everything was wonderful.

Nice outdoor atmosphere on the ocean. Food was average, prices high. Service to the table was just okay, but we had an issue with one of our dishes and the manager took care of it. I would recommend for the view, but not the food.

We went for an early dinner and sat outside. What a beautiful view. We started with a cup of the crab soup and a house salad. I didn’t love the peach vinaigrette so I went with another dressing. Greens were fresh and fruit was perfectly in season. The pecans were a nice add in too. The crab soup was “ok.” It wasn’t too heavy but lacked “that” flavor to set it apart. For dinner I had the Plancha with crab cakes. The charred broccoli was nice, but it definitely did not need the dollop of cream sauce on top. The crab cakes were fantastic. I am a crab cake snob and these had no filler and were broiled so they didn’t have that huge coating of bread crumbs that some places have. My husband had the Edisto pasta. He LOVED it. The pouched lobster and shrimp were cooked perfectly he said.

We shared the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Our server was very polite and checked back a bunch to make sure everything was perfect.

Added bonus was there was a young guy playing acoustic guitar by the railing while we were there. A must try for tasty seafood with a gorgeous view in HH.

A must when in Hilton Head. The food and scenery are outstanding. But, the big reason we enjoy the restaurant so much is for the exceptional service, namely Kate. You must ask for Kate as your server, she is absolutely the best! She is very personable and attentive to our needs and the conversation is always great.

While on vacation in Hilton Head we found Coast and we are so glad we did. A laid back vibe and beautiful view, only to be outdone by the delicious food. Overall great experience.

We go to Coast every year for dinner and I was very disappointed this year vs. prior years with regard to the level of service and the menu offerings. We still enjoyed our dinner but it was not nearly as good as in past years.

Love Coast! Can’t beat the oceanfront setting and the food is really good. Service was a little slow on this visit. Our waitress disappeared for long stretches of time between ordering drinks and getting them, getting our food and giving her my payment method and her coming back with my receipt. But, Coast is still a great place!

Our server was nice, but the folks who brought the food were not friendly or even personable. The food was very overpriced for what we got -- the shrimp nachos had hardly any shrimp on them and the Tuna entrée was piled high with rice -- hardly a good value for $34 dollars and three of us ordered the tuna. I would not go back and in fact cancelled a reservation that I had made for later in the week.

Great food. Great service. There is a fee at the gated community access that we were unaware of when booking our reservation. I probably would have chosen a different restaurant as the choices of restaurants are many and the days that we were in Hilton Head were few.

We were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect from the complimentary champagne to the meal and dessert. Our server, Candace, was the best and even gave us a beautiful hand written card. Dina was also very attentive to checking on us and visiting. We had a great night all around.

What a fantastic evening it was with my beautiful lady. We had a table on the balcony with a gorgeous view of the ocean. The weather was absolutely perfect.

I can not find the right words to describe the experience .
