The food here is NEVER a disappointment. I have eaten here three different times and had three different fish dishes. All I can say awesome! Those who have dined with us are shocked that their is such a great seafood restaurant in Canton. I love this place, especially the mussels appetizer. Wish I could eat here every week.
Out of town family and first time dining here
We were celebrating our son’s adoption day. It’s his favorite restaurant and he ate every bit of his food. Delicious!
Server made us feel stupid. I was disappointed in the server I have never had a bad food experience at goin coastal, but this time the service was horrible. Our waiter talked down to us and tried to up sell is on everything. He then stared us down as we left because I left a small tip for his crappy performance.
We went as a family of four. Everyone enjoyed the dinner. It’s delicious and fast as well as freshly prepared. Great restaurant.
The food was amazing. Had the stuffed trout and the mussels as an appetizer were phenomenal. Taylor our server was outstanding . This place never disappoints.
Loved our first trip here
It was great. We love goin’ coastal. Always great service and fantastic food!
Best oysters for many miles !!! The fried shrimp is Unbelievable. All the seafood is very fresh. Never disappointed.
Yes it’s pricey, but the portions were better than we expected and perfect. This place brought a huge smile to Our faces the whole night and it’s the best meal my wife and I have had in a while. She got the scallop risotto and that was fantastic. I got a filet topped with lobster and crab. I also love that they source all their fish (daily) from honest and sustainable sources. We have already booked another dinner here two weeks from now :)
We had a GREAT meal with friends! Tuna appetized special was top-notch! First time sitting in the back room and enjoyed it being a little quieter.
Our server Amber was attentive, knowledgeable & a pure pleasure!!
47th wedding anniversary.
Went for the lobster this week, but always delicious whatever I order. Best fish I have found in the area.
My wife and I have dined here many times. The food is consistently outstanding. The service is always good. Prices are fair, considering the quality. Noise level varies considerably, from comfortable to obnoxious, depending on which section you’re seated. Overall, you can’t miss having a great meal here.
7:30 pm on Saturday and they were out of 2 main meals, place is good but would be nice if we could order what’s on the board.
Excellent as always!
We have been to this restaurant many times and normally have great food and service. We had reservations at 6:15pm on Thursday 12-26-19. We were shown to a crowded step up area ( looks like it was used for a band at some point). Three high top tables in a small space. next to metal railing, chair was wobbly, so my husband used it. There were many empty tables, and we asked for one of those and we were told those were for 4 people not two. Yet we saw other tables for a party of 4 ( even booths) with only two people.
Took our server awhile to come to us, even though it was not busy yet. We ordered wine, and water. Waited to hear the appetizer special, then ordered the crab and shrimp dip with ciabatta bread, which was good temperature, texture, and taste ( a little kick from cayenne pepper). My husband ordered the peel your own shrimp boil with andouille sausage and corn on the cob, and he added Dungeness crab legs for an additional charge. I ordered a special listed and described as a 1 pound stuffed lobster tail from Maine,stuffed with crab and shrimp, with my choice of hush puppies. When it was delivered it had the claws on it too. From the first bite no lobster, just some slimy looking uncooked disgusting food. Our server was no where in sight, so I asked the girl clearing the table to please get her. She came back and said she was busy. We waited, then she finally came over. I explained that this was uncooked and not lobster. She got the manager. Disturbing when a manager makes excuses for why it may look uncooked, and tells you that the stuffed “lobster” is a chopped scallop base! No wonder that the uncooked slimy texture did not resemble lobster, because it was chopped scallops, not lobster. For $35.00 I expect lobster in a stuffed lobster tail! I also expect an honest description by the server of what is in the dishes they are serving, including the specials.
We have always had great fish there until this last visit. We will go back and hopefully it will be as good as it has always been. Maybe the main chef was on vacation!
Excellent food and service as always
Always fresh fish and oysters. Always variety and options for every taste!
This was not a pleasurable experience. We were given a high seated table which we requested a change because of my wife's back issue. We were told there was not another available. We never saw a server to take our drink order. We felt ignored. After 10 minutes we left the restaurant. The manager apologized for the performance of her staff both in person and by voice mail when we arrived home.
On other occasion when dining at goin coastal. We hope when we go back service will return to that we experienced earlier.
Always a delicious meal. Both my blackened redfish and my husband’s mahi were cooked PERFECTLY! We’ve never had a bad experience here in any way from cocktails to food to service... Goin’ Coastal has quickly become our new favorite!
Another great meal! We shared the calamari and I had the fried shrimp while my husband enjoyed the Hapuka special - OUTSTANDING. The fresh fish choices are simply amazing!
We love this restaurant!
Date night with the wife. Always a good dining experience.
Love this place. Just found it a couple of months ago and is now our go to place.
Everything is fresh and good portion sizes. Calamari is the best we have ever had, and we try it every place it's offered.
Always one of our favorites. With the drive from East Cobb
Josh, the owner, ads a very personalized touch. Courtney, our server, was very helpful and delivered exceptional service while bringing along a great trainee Benjamin. The Red Fish selection was excellent paired with the suggestion of a bottle of chardonnay made the Birthday celebration perfect.
Awesome experience! Great food and excellent service. Fresh seafood rocks!
Excellent service, food and preparation. One of our favorite restaurants.
The fish, oysters and salad were good. The side of brussels sprouts were more onions than brussels, which was disappointing. I enjoyed the pinot noir, but the wine list was smaller than expected. The service was excellent and the quaint walk in downtown charming so I will definitely come back.
Goin' Coastal is a great locally owned and operated restaurant in the heart of downtown Canton. The menu is focused on seafood dishes however they have a good selection of entrees for those that are not fish lovers. I recommend giving this restaurant a try if you have never been there, my wife & I have been there half a dozen or more times and never been disappointed.
Amber was great. Shared a lot with us about the place and her own story. So appropriate. We really enjoyed our time there. Thanks to the entire staff.
It was extremely noisey
Food was good but very overpriced
First visit in some time, food was actually better than I remembered. The Oysters Rockefeller is fantastic for an appetizer. My wife truly enjoyed the Stuffed Lobster!
My girlfriend and I have been here several times...it never disappoints!!! Ask Josh for a wine suggestion...he's great! The Red Fish blackened was outstanding. My girlfriend usually gets fish but decided to try the scallops...wow!! Fantastic!!! We will be back!
great food and service.
We love this place! Great food, drinks and service all in downtown Canton!!! Wonderful!
If you love seafood this is your go to restaurant. We eat there on Mondays for the lobster special or Wed. for the oysters. The food is well prepared and delicious. Try it you won't be disappointed. Well worth the drive! Staff is friendly and makes us feel at home.
