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
A fantastic meal ... service is excellent, food outstanding, and the prices right in line. Just an exceptional evening.
Thank you Dan!
I love this place. Food awesome! Service awesome! A bit crowded for pandemic times though. People did not mask up when walking around. That is the reason for lower stars.
There were 4 of us and we sat in a booth, which helped cut the noise level a bit so that we could converse. The two ladies had the spotted snapper done with the Coastal preparation, My husband had the halibut in parchment and the other gentleman had the yellowfin tuna. The tuna came out rare and he sent it back to be made medium rare. It took about 10 minutes for the tuna to come back to the table and it was then overdone. The spotted snapper dinners and the halibut dinners were excellent. We also had the fried pickles and alligator bites for appetizers. Very good! The cocktails that we ordered were good, too. the service was superb throughout our dining experience.
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your dinner with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
( as usual) the food was top notch and service was great. Had good time.
Once again, the food was outstanding and the service was great.
Thank you MichaelC!
Kevin was our server. He was friendly, timely and knowledgeable. Excellent service.
We tried the soft shell crab appetizer, which was amazing! We both tried fish that we had never had, Tile fish and Monk fish. Both were very good. Of course the Lobster Mac was worth the trip all by itself.
Fresh delicious and variety of fish always makes Goin' Coastal a great choice.
Thanks so much Darren for your review. Glad you tried some new fish and a trip here without getting the Lobster Mac is a sin... See you soon!
We had a great time last night celebrating my husband’s birthday. Benjamin was awesome! Great suggestions for cocktails and entree.
Thanks so much for your kind review! We love Benjamin too!
Great seafood joint in Canton. Service was outstanding and food was delicious.
We went a mid afternoon lunch and ordered off the dinner menu. I had the Goin Costal Bowl, Cole slaw and house salad. The house salad was awesome it had so many ingredients that I can't remember all of them and the dressing complimented everything in it. The Bowl had scallops, shrimp, mussels, fish, and potatoes in it and the broth was so good that it alone would be a meal. My wife had Tilefish prepared in the Goin Costal Spice, she eats gluten-free, with a side of broccoli and french fries she usually get halibut or grouper but decided to try something new and said she liked it as much as the others. Service was outstanding , our server Benjamin was very outgoing and had a knowledge of seafood. This is one of our favorite places to eat.
Thanks kindly for your review and letting me know about the level of service Ben provided for you both.
One of our favorite places to dine when we are in town. Really consistent service and food.
Fish was not up to par as normal
