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.

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.

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 :)

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
