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!

    The occasion was my wife’s birthday. The reservation was for 7:15. Our table wasn’t ready until 8:15…not good…Also our dinner was very late arriving to the table…the waitress was not at fault. She told us that the head chef was on vacation & the kitchen was backed up…. This was the 1st time we had this kind of problem after numerous dinners The food came out hot & delicious The waiting time was excessive

    Man I hope this was an off night for Coastal ! Food -delish.. service a hot mess. And she was trying to be so cute. Food was poorly timed - everything came out at once . Appetizers, main courses .. waitstaff reaching across us to set plates down ! AND AT ONE POINT- OUR WAITRESS KNOCKED HUBBY'S WINE GLASS OVER -thank goodness it was a slow motion moment and he caught it.. it was red.. would have really killed the night. Mussels are divine !! Unfortunately it was my husbands birthday.. and there was no HB anything.. surprised! Will def. go again, But also can anyone help me score a table in the main dining room !? Every time I book through Open table- I only get the high top /bar area option ! Just saying...

    Coastal Grill is a wonderful restaurant! The food was simply delicious! Every bite was a delectable treat, well-prepared and flavorful. I came to the restaurant with my 10-year old daughter. She has a sophisticated palate, and has moved far beyond classic kid menu fare. She had the garlic shrimp entree and loved it! I had the fried oysters with grilled asparagus and butternut squash and equally enjoyed my meal. I was particularly pleased with the preparation of the oysters and squash. The oysters were not heavily breaded or greasy. Instead, they were perfectly cooked, moist, and flavorful. The butternut squash was also expertly prepared and seasoned. This restaurant was worth every penny. I can't recommend it enough.

    Our food was excellent and the service was outstanding. The only issue was the bartender poured the wrong beer on my second glass and in my opinion whatever beer it was I could not drink it. We love this restaurant and we go here all the time.

    Low rating primarily due to an extremely slow kitchen on a busy Saturday night. Our reservation was for 7:15 (our table wasn’t ready for at least 10 minutes past this time). We didn’t leave until close to 9 (just the 2 of us, no drinks or appetizers). Nobody in the restaurant seemed overly concerned that my wife did not enjoy her $36 entree. Just an unfortunate experience all around. Unlikely to return.

    Our party of 4 (I guess we would be considered "hip geezers") enjoyed the then quiet ambiance of the east dining room area (our reservation was at 5:15 on a Saturday, and tables were full when we left 2 hours later). All of our orders were off the "specials" menu - halibut, flounder, and soft-shell crab. We agreed our meals were delicious. Our waiter, Spencer, was very personable and knowledgable. Excellent evening spent with good friends.

    Returned to Virginia Beach after a more than twenty year absence, and was thrilled to go back to my favorite restaurant. It did not disappoint, everything was as wonderful as I remembered. The decor had changed, but the ambiance was just as nice and the food and service excellent. I can’t wait to go back again, just hope it’s not twenty years again.
