Very fresh ingredients that prepared very well - great staff- great experience
We live in Cumming and have visited pretty much every restaurant in the area. We wanted to venture out to see what we've been missing in other areas. Did a Google search for seafood restaurants within an hour drive and found Goin Coastal. It was about 40 minutes from where we live but well worth the drive.
From the moment we entered the restaurant we loved the vibe. The interior was open and warm. We had a reservation and were seated immediately by a very nice hostess. Our servers (one was in training) were at the table very quickly and took our drink order. The drinks were quick to be served and our server asked if we had any questions about the menu. We had viewed it online before we arrived so we didn't have any questions and knew what we wanted.
My girlfriend is gluten free and loved how they identified all the options on the menu. She decided to go with the Shrimp and Crab Louie salad as an entree. I ordered the Low Country Shrimp Platter. We told our server we were going to split these and were pleasantly surprised they were delivered that way. Kudos for the great service. I also ordered the lobster bisque, which isn't GF so I enjoyed that all by myself. It was delicious. Lots of lobster chunks.
Both of our entrees were presented beautifully and tasted terrific. The only downside was in splitting the Louie salad there wasn't a lot of crab but would have been if one person was eating it. No biggie. We appreciate the fact this restaurant focuses on serving sustainable seafood. Overall this was a really good experience and we'll definitely be back.
This restaurant has the best service and a smaller more sustainable seafood selection.
Everything was GREAT!
Shrimp is the BEST!
French Fries are crispy and seasoned to PERFECTION!
Goin' Coastal is my #1 Draft Choice!!!
We eat here pretty regularly. It is the best restaurant Downtown Canton. The fish is always excellent and service is great. :)
Excellent food and service. Love the Sea Bass, Blackened! Yummy!
Our young server needed help. I had to remind her several times of requests and she never did bring us our requested water.
The Birthday card was really appreciated!
The food was phenomenal. We were very satisfied!! We will definitely go back! The she crab and ChLilian sea bass were a must! Everything was cooked to perfection. I got my fish piping hot and cooked to perfection.
I get serious cravings for their Low Country boil and it never disappoints! Service is always good. On very busy nights (when there’s a special), it can get loud enough to stifle conversation - but the food is worth it.
We were offered a high top table. When we told them that it was unacceptable due to my wife having major back surgery in the past and was very uncomfortable for her their response was even worse. They told us that the other tables were for larger parties only and there was nothing they could do. Our response was walking out. I have never heard of such a policy. We have eaten there before with friends and enjoyed the food and the service we received at the other visit. I would not recommend this place to anyone due to the service we received at our last visit.
I grew up in Florida and seafood was weekly meal in my house. It was my best seafood experience since I have moved to Ga. I have and will continue to recommend it to anyone who will listens.
Good! Food was a cold unfortunately, but I think the plates came out of the fridge? Food was excellent regardless.
We have been three times now and have left extremely satisfied every time! The food is fresh and delicious! You must try the lobster mac and cheese!! Service is great and even when the restaurant is full, we get our food quickly. They do run out of some fish options since it’s delivered daily, so go early. :)
Had the lobster and New York strip for dinner. Meat was excellent taste and full of flavor. The lobster was steamed with drawn butter and it’s taste was mouth watering and so good. Courtney was our server giving us wonderful service. Make your reservations now and fall in love with seafood with Goin Coastal!!!
Taylor was excellent and so sweet! The food was amazing as always and lemon drops were great!
Food is spot on ande the staff is friendly and professional. It is well worth the drive. You won't be disappointed. Enjoy!
Anniversary - appreciate the signed card
Food was not as good as last visit.
Always great food and service. Well worth the drive from Milton.
My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience. The food was delicious (red snapper and tuna) and our server (Aubrey, I believe) was knowledgeable and communicative and professional and kind. We have already told multiple people about Goin’ Coastal and will continue screaming it from rooftops. We love what you stand for!
Only complaint was that we were seated by the restrooms.
Great food, very comfortable environment. Waitress was very upbeat and very efficient
Has taken the # 1 spot of my favorite restaurant
Our go to place when we have guest from out of town. Quality can always be depended on
Fabulous Meal shared with friends. Favorite place in Canton, GA
From start to finish a great experience. They greeted us warmly, sat us immediately in a quaint spot for a birthday dinner. The waitress, Taylor, made the dinner so much fun, describing the menu in fun detail, interacting with us with humor. The food was delicious from the Lobster Mac to Shrimp n Grits to Amberjack to the delicious Peanut Butter Pie (Taylor said it would change your life, it was sooo very good) to Creme Brulee. The GM, Josh, greeted us a couple of times, and presented a birthday card signed by the whole staff. It was one of the best dining experiences and staff we interacted with. We will be back. We highly recommend. Thank you Josh and Taylor for a fun evening.
We love everything about Goin Coastal. The waitstaff is always knowledgeable and friendly, the atmosphere is unpretentious and the food is always delicious.
Great! Really great!
Fish dishes amazing but kids meals were lacking.
Best Low Country Boil ever! Service was perfect...attentive but not intrusive.
Our waitress , Taylor did a fantastic job. she even presented me with a birthday card that was signed by the staff. We were celebrating my 80th birthday!
Amazing food and service; we brought two of our friends who had never been there, and they loved it as well. We'll be back as a group again soon.
Amazing food. Amazing service. We sit at the bar every time to be close to Larry.
Everything was amazing! Food, service, facility-very nice. We will definitely be back!
Very good overall. But the fried shrimp was a little over cooked. Sitting at the bar near the kitchen was a great choice. All worked together as a well oiled machine.
Very relaxed with delicious food. Been here several times and food is always great.
The food was not as good as it has been in the past. Risotto was very salty. Quantity in Shrimp boil and other meals was less than I remember from past visits. Service was still very good.
Great restaurant and friendly caring staff. We always look forward to our wonderful seafood meals. Try it you won't regret it. We live about 15 miles south of Canton and it is a lovely drive on back roads.
Very good food! The red fish we had was cooked perfectly and was very well seasoned.
