About the restaurant
Coast 236 takes reservations for tables of 1-6 guests only. Sorry, service animals only.

TABLES CAN ONLY BE HELD FOR 15 MINUTES FROM ORIGINAL RESERVATION TIME.

Every coastline brings with it an air of freshness and wonder, an inspiration in every ebb and flow. Coasts can be recognizable and new … predictably unpredictable in a way that can surprise or delight. But no matter the geography, there is a familiarity and a connection. At Coast 236, the rhythm of familiarity and freshness is our inspiration. Sourcing meaningful ingredients from water and land, we passionately craft approachable coastal inspired fare with unexpected details.

Love Bowdies… and what a special treat to get a free yummy dessert on our 25th anniversary. My French Martini was one of the best I’ve had. Such a delightful experience sitting on the front porch.

We visit J Paul’s often. The food and service is excellent. We love the oyster Rockefeller prime rib and scallops. A must dine location in Douglas with plenty of parking.

Lunch was fantastic! We tried the Oysters, Salad Lyonesse, Chicken Salad, Mediterranean wrap, Croque Madame and Biscuits and Gravy so we covered a lot of ground! Everything was so good....Croque Madame I think was our favorite. Very nice wine selection for in house consumption and reasonably priced to buy a bottle (or 4) for take home. Justin, the owner, stopped buy our table and we have a great conversation with him. Highly recommend this place. Reservations not needed for lunch, but are needed for dinner.
