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!

    We went for our 16th wedding anniversary. Food was delicious, but our service from our server made the experience the best. I wish I remembered his name, but he was very knowledgeable and attentive; made the experience top-notch! The grouper special was amazing.

    Another fabulous experience at Coastal Grill. The food is phenomenal. From Moe in the kitchen to Adam serving, I just can’t say enough about the entire experience. Tonight was my wife’s birthday and let me just say that because of the Coastal Grill team…I earned some crazy good husband points.

    The food and service (Kayla) was great. The duck and lamb chops were perfectly cooked, and the Caprese appetizer was delicious. Next time we will ask for a table out of the center of the room.

    We waited approx 30 minutes over our reservation at 7:30, which wasn’t a problem but we were given a free delicious salad caprese for our wait. Now, that’s good customer service!

    Food was what we expected except for shrimp and grits. No flavor. Small portion. Vegetables added were not cooked at all, raw. Soft shell crabs were good, but the side portions of potatoes and corn were non-existent as was the tartar sauce. Desert was good. Overall the restaurant not nearly as good as what we previously experienced.

    One of my favorite dishes at Coastal Grill is the Old Bay Shrimp. I ordered that last Friday night and was disappointed that two of the shrimp still had the black vein in it. Improperly cleaned food is not an appetizing sight. UGH!

    Service was slow- even the initial drink order took quite a while to arrive at the table. The food was good but we find it odd that they serve corn and potatoes - two starches - as the included veggie with the dinners. It's still a nice place to go for a leisurely dinner.

    Great food, awesome service. Thanks to the chef, who I’m sure was not happy that I like my duck well done. I worked as a waiter before and know how it is when a beautiful dish goes back but it was remedied to my liking and was delicious. Hats off!

    The food here is outstanding, really it's a must try. The staff is lovely, some are much more attentive than others, we happened to get a slightly less attentive server, but the experience was still lovely. It's tourist season right now, so we did have a screaming child sitting behind us for the entire meal which is quite unfortunate, but certainly not the restaurant's fault. The sound does carry though, so i think a high table in the bar may be a better option in the future, the unhappy baby made for difficult business dinner conversation.
