They were out of almost everything on the menu by the time we arrived for our 9pm reservation. Our only choice for fish was salmon which I could have done myself from any grocery store. I will most likely go back since the food has always been good but will make sure it’s an early reservation as late reservations have limited selection of food which I wasn’t at all happy about.

They sat us in the back next to the door to the kitchen. Ughh. Horrible table watching the wait staff constantly coming and going. Food and service were excellent.

We had a great experience at Goin Coastal. The food and service were wonderful! We will definitely be returning to enjoy the calming atmosphere and amazing food. The only thing that would make it a little better would be a little more salad and bread, and also not to be cramped at the high top table that has a large picture that hangs over the already small table. Just being honest, but we will surely try it again!

Food quality was very good. Our server was awesome (Taylor) - she's a keeper. Only downside comment is that the couple sitting next to us had a loud male which was distracting.

We came in to quietly celebrate my birthday. As always, the food was fresh, correctly served and hot! Our server was Amber and she had an excellent "table presence." We never had to track her down to fill a water glass nor did she interrupt any conversation when she arrived. Great food and AWESOME service!

My fiancé and I went for our anniversary and the staff could not have been nicer. They gave us a sweet card signed by the whole staff and sat us by the window. Very accommodating and have never had a bad experience. The lobster Mac is out of this world.

Our waiter, Matt, recommended the smoked trout toast appetizer, and it was delicious! All four of us loved our meal choices, especially the Coastal Mahi. Service was prompt and the noise level was low. A very enjoyable evening with good friends!

Drive almost an hour from Rome couple times a month for date nights just because the food and service are so amazing. Hands down ... simply the best around and such a hidden gem in Canton.

My beautiful girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience dining at Goin’ Coastal. We started our meal with the Gator Tail Starter and Hushpuppies — both were delicious. We both ordered the Shrimp and Grits for our main course and we were very satisfied with our meal! Looking forward to our next Goin’ Coastal experience!

Best Shrimp I have ever had! The collards were awesome, similar to how my Mother used to make them, tender and flavorful with a rich broth. The service was incredible as well. Everyone should give this place a try. I can't wait to go back!

Our waitress Kristen was personable and professional. The fish is the freshest I have ever tasted. I had the Armenian crusted swordfish, my husband had the Fish Bowl, friends had parmesan crusted grouper and fried shrimp. The appetizer we had was calamari. Everything was absolute prepared to perfection.

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 :)
