This visit we enjoyed appetizers (shrimp cocktail and salmon toast), mains (coastal bowl and blackened monkfish with sauteed spinach), salad, and creme brulee for dessert. The food is always impeccably prepared and service is outstanding. We are always impressed by how seamlessly Goin' Coastal makes our dining experience, regardless of how busy the restaurant is. Can't wait to return to our favorite regular spot!

Very disappointed at the number of people allowed to be at the bar, not social distancing and talking very loudly. It disappointed all of us as we are seniors and we love this restaurant. With COVID rampant, you need to be a bit more vigilant regarding safety of patrons. It will be a long time before we come back.

This is a great restaurant with consistently good food and great service. The staff are always professional and upbeat. Really a hidden jewel in the outer Atlanta metro area.

This was our first time dining at Goin' Coastal. Great ambience, great service, and great food! Our waiter was very informative and did a fantastic job serving us. We both had the parmesan crusted swordfish and the fish was absolutely amazing. All of the sides were delicious too: french fries (who can go wrong with french fries), asparagus & mushrooms, and lobster mac (delectable). We had a great experience overall and will definitely be back.

I order the scallop appetizer however I believe it was a dinner entre. Came with 10 scallops. Way to many for just a appetizer but the waiter said it was a appetizer. And $26.00. I would question that. They however were excellent but I had a hard time finishing my dinner

I visited Goin’ Costal for the first time and the service was excellent! It was my birthday and they gave me a card, which was such a nice gesture. I’ve never been to any restaurant that does that; and great service goes a long way with me! My server was Jessie and she gets 5 stars, she was so pleasant. The food was yummy and very reasonably priced (I was there for lobster night). I plan to go back so I can try the lobster mac & cheese. Definitely visit if you haven’t been, and go back if you have😊.

Fabulous food as always. Service is general excellent. Not tonight. Forgot to give us silverware, slow with drink orders, appetizers arrived before drinks, ran out of water twice. Hopefully a one off.

We were seated in the bar area when all we wanted was a nice quiet evening to have dinner. It was so noisy we could not have a conversation and asked to move to a booth in the dining room - a request which they accommodated. No social distancing here to protect the patrons. At least the staff was wearing masks. The food was delicious as usual and the service was good, but the ambience was way too loud.
