Not a bad thing to say
It was wonderful and we will be back.
We dined on the patio on a lovely autumn evening. We enjoyed Softshell Crabs and Trout, which were both delicious. We finished our meal splurging on shared Profiteroles. Wonderful! Our server was delightful and made the meal so even more enjoyable. Thanks, Coastal Grille, for a terrific dining experience!
Coastal Grill never fails to deliver a delicious meal served by delightful staff.
We ate outside and it was fine but table was wobbly and chair were very small and uncomfortable. Table was old and needs to be replaced.
Excellent food delivered with exemplary service.
It’s been years since I’ve been to the Coastal Grill and it is still outstanding. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. We ordered specials and standard menu and all were outstanding. The butternut side dish was delicious, almost dessert like. But of course we ordered dessert too. The pumpkin pie cheese case was to die for.
Wonderful food and venue, as always!
Amazing chef ! - a dinning experience, not just dinner out...Beautiful place
Some people drinking at the bar and sitting at the bar eating which is against Covid rules. Seems they make exceptions for their regulars- that is actually dangerous and they should reconsider this practice. I asked the server if it was allowed and he said it wasn’t allowed but he couldn’t defend why it was being ignored. Covid rules are serious people, please follow the rules.
The bartender makes great cosmos!
Sat in newly opened back room. Very quiet and comfortable. Food was excellent, wait staff was excellent.great meal with friends.!
Very nice atmosphere, staff was incredible, and food was prepared perfect.
Coastal Grill continues to have one of the Top Soft Shell Crabs Entrees in the country.We also had a variation of the restaurants Seafood Medley including Calamari and Pasta that was also oustanding.
First time visiting, out on a date night. Service was excellent, bringing the food at the right times and allowing us to relax. Great wine choices, seafood was great. Dessert topped it off very nicely. Highly recommend visiting.
Love the menu selections, the consistently amazing food, and consistent great service. A staple in Va Beach. Never a disappointment. Our go to place for years.
We decided to try a new restaurant and chose Coastal Grill. Unfortunately, my wife and I had a bad experience there that evening. Very Slow service, improperly cooked entrees, ( bother were barely warm; even after the 2nd reheat!) and they allowed a couple at the restaurant to wander to several tables without wearing masks!!! After this experience I doubt we will return.
The service is always great here. Beautiful dining area.
We started with the fried shrimp appetizer which is a meal in and of itself, tremendous. My wife had the tuna, her go to meal here. She raves it is the best here of anywhere. I opted to try the steak as I usually choose either the scallops or the flounder. The steak was uneventful and tough. I will go back to my usual standards.
Great place to dine.
My daughter suggested this as a nice place for my wife and I to celebrate our 52d wedding anniversary. It was the first time in quite awhile we had been out to a nice restaurant due to the Covid-19 restrictions, and it turned out to be a superb recommendation. Excellent food, service, and and environment quite enough to allow some decent conversation. I had the salmon following a remarkably tasty wedge lettuce salad, and my wife had the leg of lamb after a clever shrimp appetizer. There is a fine wine list, and for light drinkers like ourselves, plenty of good by-the-glass selections to choose from. Very nice selection of desserts as well. Definitely a place we will be returning to soon. Highly recommended.
Wait staff wore masks. There were fewer tables than usual so were socially distanced. Great food!
One of the best restaurants in Virginia Beach all ways consistently delicious my family loves it can’t wait to go back again
We love Coastal Grill and have for 30 years!!
We have been coming to Coastal Grill on our Anniversary for many years. The food is great, very fresh. The waitress was training a new girl and they were both very pleasant and always checking up on us. We will always be going back to Coastal Grill as long as they keep serving.
Coastal Grill continues to best one of the best restaurants in VA Beach!
Great food and great service. Taking careful precautions and being mindful of what is best for customers and staff.
Coastal Grill is always reliable great food. The soft shell crabs are the best in town. The fish is always fresh. The warm brownie with ice cream is a must for dessert!
We ordered the Bronzini whole fish and it was excellent. I highly recommend it. Our server was very attentive and we tried the wine special and we liked our choice as well. Looking forward to our next visit.
Outstanding service and cuisine in a beautifully developed location on Great Neck Rd.
One of the best restaurant in Hampton Roads
Great as always perfect food and atmosphere really best restaurant in vb
The food was outstanding and the service was great. Our waitress was very attentive. The table behind us was drinking a lot of wine and got progressively louder.
Consistently, the best overall experience.
WOW, what can I say! Food, Service and overall experience was AWESOME! I truly love eating at Coastal Grill. The best restaurant in Hampton Roads by FAR!!!!
Everything was really great but very expensive. For the 2 of us we spent $341. Again it was all really great and we will go back but check prices more thoughtfully and carefully. Service was perfect.
Food is always good and servers friendly (which is crucial to a good dining experience). Love the decor. Never had a bad meal. Would not recommend the strip steak however.
Coastal Grill continues to deliver an exceptional dining experience. The ambiance, service, and food is always on point and it’s the proven to be the very best restaurant in Virginia Beach.
It’s a nice restaurant, nothing spectacular. The food was ok. Nice place but I wouldn’t go back
the service was great and the food was great just wish the tables outside were a little larger
Meal was well done
Wonderful service and delicious food as always!
Always amazing. Food was so yummy. And the server was so sweet and very attentive. 10/10 recommend
Coastal Grill had been one of our favorite restaurants and one we frequently recommended. Our last visit was such a disappointment. The New York strip was first served well done (ordered medium) and a replacement steak was served very rare. It took 3 tries to get it properly cooked and by then the rest of our family was finished eating. The halibut special was very small and way overcooked. It was dried out and tough. While the waitress seemed sincerely apologetic for the kitchen's mistakes there was no attempt from a manager to address the situation or improve the experience. It was our anniversay celebration and we left wishing we had chose a different restaurant. Coastal Grill no longer ranks as a favorite.
