This is one of our favorite restaurants for years. Always an A+. Unfortunately, it was not up to its great standards on our last visit. The cornbread muffins were dry. They usually are warm, soft and melt in your mouth. My fish was slightly over cooked. Husband's fish was cooked perfectly. I would give it a B+. Maybe our next trip will be back on par with past performances.

I order a different kind of fish every time we eat here and each time I say “this is the best fish I’ve ever had”. It really is so delicious. Tonight I had the red snapper with the Parmesan crust with the whipped potatos while my husband got his usual (the filet mignon)...both were excellent as always! Very consistent. The service is always wonderful and the atmosphere is spot on.

Steak was under cooked twice, fish was raw, waitress was burned out. have eaten
there many times and always enjoyed. It was our 25th wedding anniversary which we
mentioned when placing our reservation. We were seated in the bar area with plenty
of open tables in the primary dining area. Very loud bar patrons. It will be a long time
before we return if ever. Something has changed with management or ownership but
has gone down hill in drastic way.

We are sorry to hear about your experience with us Friday. Sounds like we really dropped the ball on your evening. We were not made aware about the "raw" fish that you were served and would have made immediate amends. Feel free to reach out to me personally, we'd like to make things right for you both. ~ Samantha Adler, General Manager

Great food- fresh, service was good, I just wish the waiter didn’t push in selling us a fish we didn’t want & insisted. Being in sales myself I don’t appreciated, too pushing & Didn’t enjoy the experience
Does the waiters get a bonus if they sell more🤔—— because he was very persistent.
Didn’t enjoy this part of my dining experience is this restaurant.

This is the second week in a row that we’ve been to Goin’ Coastal. It’s always wonderful. We had the same server, Carly, who is so sweet and “knows her stuff”. Explains the menu perfectly and checks on us throughout the meal..always with a smile.

One can never, ever go wrong dining at Goin' Coastal. The staff is knowledgeable about the seafood they offer, from texture to origin and they are able to compare the varieties so that you get just what you like! It can be prepared any way you prefer. Even better, trust your server to recommend the preferred fish, seasoning and preparation -- you can't go wrong!

We have dined there many times, and I have had nothing less than an exceptional meal each time!
