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!

    Food was absolutely delicious. Although a bit on the pricey side but the quality and taste was exceptional. We love the wilted lettuce salad and squash. I had the one of the specials which was flounder cooked in brown butter and orange. The fish was light and flaky and perfectly seasoned. My husband had the fried oysters which he raved about and said they were the best he had in a long time. My MIL had the salmon and she ate every bite. The service was impeccable, used dishes were quickly cleared from our table, water glasses remained topped off. Jonel was our server and she was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive.

    Spencer B was a great server. The duck and tenderloin were 5 stars! We enjoyed a bottle of wine and creme brûlée to finish it all off. Perfect dinner. We look forward to coming back. Complements also to the bartender. The chocolate old fashioned was one of my favorites. And Im a real bourbon snob.

    From the moment the valet gave me his hand to help me from our car to the 2 valets waiting with our doors open as we excited the restaurant, I can not rave more about this restaurant. The staff makes you feel like a million dollars, and they are obviously well trained. The food is always outstanding. If you want a special evening, this is THE place to go.

    We have dined at Coastal Grill for over 20 years. Always loved the food and the service level. Unfortunately, this last visit was not as good. Our server was apparently very busy. Our main dishes were delivered by another server who basically dropped them on the table and walked away. Our sides were not delivered. Our original server was scarce. Other servers would not make eye contact. Over 15 minutes after our main dishes were delivered our original server showed up and when informed about the missing sides, she went and retrieved our sides. I never thought I would be saying this about Coastal Grill, but the scallops and oysters in our main dishes were simply not cooked as well as in the past. Not Coastal Grill’s best performance.
