Goin' Coastal is very good quality coastal seafood. Quality is outstanding; you can see the quality assurance guy evaluating every dish that comes out of the kitchen to make sure it's up to standard. And it shows - really good quality at just the right temperature. It's like a top-tier chef level food without the super high price. We really liked it and will be back. Great date night. Oh, and ask for Jessica; she is one of the best servers we've ever had.

Can't believe they can charge what they do for their cocktails, I don't think there was any alcohol in their Bloody Mary yet they charge $9.00.

Zach and his team never disappoint. We began with the Calamari. Which was tender and not greasy.
Followed by shrimp and grits and The seafood boil with crab legs. Both our meals were made with fresh ingredients. Cooked to perfection.
We closed the dinner with Coffee and The Triple Chocolate Pie. Made by Zach’s Mom. Do not leave without trying it!
We will be back soon!

Goin Coastal has been our "go to" fish house siince it opened. Sustainable Fishing and Quality Product drives the menu. If you like a good seafood restaurant (not the deep fried forzen crap like Tilapia) you should give it a try. It's not cheap and there can be a wait - go anyway.

Our meal did not start at well as we had a 7pm reservation but where not seated until 730.

There was no apology or any help given by the staff for our treatment.

Our appetizers was oyster rockfeller and was very good. Our dinner was the tuna meal and the lobster risotto and again it was very good.

We ended the meal with a less than wonderful creme boulee until we told the waiter how to make the desert better.

This great find was recommended to me by a dmv worker! I have been at least four times and never have been disappointed! The fresh fish is what I go for it is flown in three times a week and is wild not farm raised! They have 2 window seats which is where I like to sit to window watch! Bar crowd at happy hour is loud but you don't have to sit near the bar! Online reservations are available and would recommend them! They were booked totally for New Year's Eve!

Exhaust fan in kitchen didn't seem to work...very smokey. Cocktails watered down and salad needed to be revamped. Had grouper special with sauce that was bland. Husband had trout that was very salty. Not going back.

Friendly staff, great bartender, and delicious food. We enjoy the Monday Lobster special and the Wed. oyster special. It is about a 45 min. drive each way from our house and it never fails to please. The food is always spot on. The seafood is so fresh and they have a great variety. You will be pleased. Give it a try. We love to eat there!!!

Such and incredible restaurant for such a small town. It is Atlanta quality decor, food and service in small-town Canton. Crazy! The bartenders are rock stars. So popular, you must have a reservation on the weekends. Very special.

This is a solid experience all the way around. I don’t give 5 star anything because there is always room for improvement. I’ve been here twice and look forward to coming back. This is the the classic triple threat. Great food, great service, and a great atmosphere in which to dine. My only recommendation is to get a reservation. This is a popular place and I don’t like to wait on a table. My first time in we waited a bit for a table but the cocktails were easy to get and came out quickly. We had a table in a reasonable amount of time. The second time with a reservation, we were seated immediately and they were busy. Highly recommend this place.
