Awesome food as usual. Friendly service too.
The food was excellent (oysters on the half, wine, cobia, coastal style, asparagus & shrooms in shallot butter) but the service was off this visit. When the standard is set so high, it really shows when it drops off a bit. Last time it was the food that was lacking. Not sure from where the inconsistencies stem, but something has changed, unfortunately.
Service was fantastic. I would hire her for my company! Food was ok but overall a good experience!
Fun place to go! Great service. Good food none of our favorites!
Drinks were pretty terrible. Wife didn’t even touch hers. Food was alright. Service was mediocre
Autumn was an awesome waitress very knowledgeable about the fish and where it comes from. Everything was delicious as well as hot. Too many times you go out to eat and the food is lukewarm by the time it arrives to the table.
This is one of our favorite seafood restaurants. Our daughter requests Goin' Coastal for her birthday dinner since she was 11 and she just turned 23...and she always gets their fried chicken!! The seafood is phenomenal from starters to main courses. Try the Smoked Trout Mousse. We had fried Gator Tails which were tender and juicy. I had the Halibut, parmesan crusted and topped with lobster and crab. The sides are great also from the horseradish mashed potatoes to the stone ground cheese grits. Also the mixed cocktails are wonderful also. You can't beat the food, atmosphere and service at Goin' Coastal.
Daddy daughter date. Food was outstanding. The Oysters rocked.
We had an outstanding meal
Our server Mandy was very attentive
Our food came quickly and we devoured every bite
We will be back for sure!
It's always a treat at Goin' Coastal. Excellent fish preparations.
Excellent food and service. we are becoming regulars.
I love the atmosphere here at this restaurant. I do although feel like it is expensive for each meal. Aside from offering salad with each meal, I think that a side should be added to account for the price. The food is good though!
Food was good but a bit expensive. Server did an excellent job, though. Was disappointed that i booked with open table and it initially said i would get 100 points but, after booking, it said no points!
The food and service was excellent as always. The female manager who has been there for a while could improve on her personality to the customers- as many times we have been there she really isn't friendly. Even friends we have brought to the restaurant has noticed this.
We had been looking forward to coming back to goin coastal, it had been a few years. Everything was great except for how loud it was. We were sat near the bar and although it was not busy at 9pm on a Saturday, the servers were talking very loud with each other and with the bartender. They talked about previous dinners and other inappropriate subjects and made it all out business. We were so disappointed. At one time it was so loud we could not compete and ate our dinner in silence.
Awesome as always. Never disappoints. Always a great meal. No parking charge and no crazy traffic to deal with. A real gem if you want a great meal without the nonsense of going into the ATL.
we live in Atlanta and we came all the way to the suburbs for faster service and safer environment, this area and restaurant did NOT disappoint us !! WE WILL BE BACK! Food was exceptional, served piping hot, service was superior!! Keep up the good work!
Good selection of fresh fish, delicious soup and knowledgeable wait staff.
Always very pleased with food, presentation and exceptional service every time we’ve been and will continue to return when we can.
Wonderful waitress, Wonderful food!
We had another fabulous evening at Goin’ Coastal! The atmosphere, the food & spirits were delightful!🥰
Always excellent. Great choices and preparation of fish. Very good service.
Favorite restaurant in Canton. Food & service are great! Shrimp tacos are our favorite lunch entree!
The lobsters were fantastic. Special kudos to our server Jessica. She was outstanding. We Will be back and ask for her.
Goin’ Coastal is definitely one of our all-time favorite restaurants in Canton Georgia! Every experience we have had there has been excellent until last night. Perhaps staffing has been affected by the pandemic, but the service was very slow and the food was not it’s usual five star fare. The petite corn muffins that are served to the table as an appetizer we’re definitely sub par (dry) compared to the delectable treat we have come to expect.
We have never had a bad meal here. Always great food and service.
My husband and I each tried a different fish for dinner and we were not disappointed! The serving size was perfect and both dishes were very good!
Whenever we want seafood, we go to Goin' Coastal. The food is outstanding and the service is excellent. We highly recommend it.
Omg!!! How fun is this place! Our Company AQUA DOC gathers here all the time for both business and fun. The food and service is the best ever and the desserts are a must!
We are so happy to have you for guests the other evening and we thank you for your patronage and this great review!
The food and service are excellent. However, depending on where you sit, the noise level is horrible. My suggestion is never make a reservation on Open Table because you can't really insure where they will seat you. Make your reservation by phone and request to be seated in the back room past the bar. Even though we love the food, I will never go back unless guaranteed a seat in that back room.
Tom , Thank you for your feedback. As you know sometimes folks are not conscientious of using their inside voices and especially on a weekend evening! As a side note we can add to your reservation account that you prefer seating in our wine room which is cozy and quieter than our bar area. Let us know and we can take care of this for you.
Great date and dinner!
Food is always excellent and wait staff very friendly and accommodating.
Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake is to die for. Wish they would bring back their fried calamari!
Thank you Chris for your feedback. Calamari prices shot through the roof and rather than gorge you on the price increase we've chosen to bring this back as a special appetizer from time to time when sticker shock or a drastic change in portion size wouldn't be an issue for us or our guests. We will however never slight you the opportunity to enjoy our Chocolate Mousse cake! See you soon.
Fried shrimp is absolutely the best anywhere!! Sides and salad are nice.
Mixed drinks are excellent!
Wonderfully delicious dinner!!!
Thank you Lenora for your review We really appreciate the stars and we might be biased but we couldn't agree more with you about our fried shrimp!
The Oyster Rockefeller was good but could have been hotter
The food was great! Our server was new, but aimed to please.
Excellent service . Excellent piece of fish . Highly recommend
Thank you so very much.
Food was good - pricey for the amount of food you get - made reservations. Made reservations specifically asked for a booth was seated right by the door - a both was available when asked for it they said no - it was empty the whole time we were there - hostess was NOT FRIENDLY - maybe she should be washing dishes and not interacting with patrons
Weird, but some of the freshest seafood in ATL is in Canton, GA.
Going Coastal is one of our favorites! The food is always fresh and well prepared. The wait staff give great recommendations as they frequently have new fresh catch selections. We often bring out of town guests and they are always impressed and ask to go back the next time they are in town!
Phil Thank you so much for your recommendation. We love what we do and glad that it shows!
Finally had my favorite fish amberjack. Great meal great service
