Seafood
Classic, consistent, upscale cuisine is offered in a well-appointed, unpretentious setting in this top-notch nosherie. The beautiful bar invites easy conversation and casual dining. Located on the affluent Great Neck corridor in Virginia Beach, just three miles from the Oceanfront, Coastal Grill is as famous for what isn't on the menu as for what actually is. Owner Jerry Bryan with Executive Chef Maureen Cucchiaro and Chef de Cusine Brad Bates at the stove, offer an extensive list of "blackboard specials," always with a nice assortment of freshly caught regional seafood. This locals favorite has received critical acclaim since its inception over 25 years ago, culminating in being voted the Number 1 Restaurant by Hampton Roads Magazine. With amazing food and exemplary service, Coastal Grill is a sure bet for business dinners, special occasions, or simply unwinding after a hard day. Come celebrate with us!

Amazing meal! Delicious from cocktail to appetizer to main course. No dessert, but the acorn squash with brown sugar was almost dessert itself within the meal.

I have eaten at coastal Grill a number of times. This is the first time I was disappointed in my meal.I had the pork line and even though I asked for it to be medium rare or medium it came well done. The butternut squash was great as always but the garnishes for the pork loin were too small. This was made more noticeable because of how dry the pork loin was. We were the first ones in the Restaurant because our reservation was at 5 PM. I was very surprised that the first dish they put out was overcooked.

The meal that my wife and I had was absolutely delicious. The preparation of the flounder that I had was perfect,and the vegetables that went with it were well chosen and beautifully presented. I would highly recommend the Coastal Grill.

We love this restaurant but we celebrated a birthday and brought in a cake. They charged us $40 to plate the cake. We also order a scoop of ice cream for everyone - 10 people. They also charged almost $40 for the ice cream. The server was very attentive and friendly.

The seating leaves something to be desired. Having to use a pillow to sit on because the chairs were unpadded. Also didn’t enjoy the small deuce in the middle of the floor

For the first time ever, my husband didn't finish the gin and tonic he'd ordered--just tasted bad. No one gives a bad review based on one drink but he'd always said, "Coastal always has the best g and t." No more. Food was good but not excellent. Service was very good. We'll be back but it may be a while.
