I’ve wanted to try this place for a very long time. It was well worth the wait......great service, fantastic food and a cool atmosphere. Can’t wait to come back.
Oyster Wed was great! What a value...
The too loud reggae music, even tho I honor Bob Marley & love reggae, felt contrived & at an aggressive decibel level... not conducive to my preferred digestion ambiance.
Let me suggest carefully selected, food conducive jazz by masters... so much to choose from.
We arrived to a celebratory notice on our table, pleasant welcome and quick but not rushed service. The choices of fish and preparation style were perfect for our taste. Each of us was very pleased with our choice. The complimentary sides for our1 undecided diner was much appreciated as were the 2 birthday desserts. Great spot for casual but delicious dining.
Food was super lemony, there was so much lemons on my shrimp scampi. I couldn’t even eat it, it was so sour.
Good food and service and fun, laid-back atmosphere.
We waited about an hour after our reservation time. There was no room at the bar. No real apology from anyone but the stressed hostess. We were promised “something” complimentary. Got nothing and never saw a manager. Food was good but overpriced. I won’t go back
I know it sounds crazy, but had really great chicken dish in seafood place. My husband had blackened grouper--said it was very spicy but delish.
We'll come back for sure and try the fresh fish (advertised on the blackboard) next time
I love this place in Virginia Highlands!! The food and cocktialis are always great and satisfying and the staff never disappoint!!!
Yep, this is the place to go for seafood. There must have been at least eight different types of fish on the menu. Get here early, otherwise you are sure to miss out on a particular fish. Once it is gone, it's gone. Everything is fresh and hot when it comes out of the kitchen. The staff is friendly and most accommodating. We had the crab and shrimp dip as our appetizer and it was ourstanding! Get it when you come. If you like some spice and a little heat, then the blackened fish is the best. You will nor be disappointed, Coastal comes in second.
One of the best low country boil!
Daily fish selection was also fresh and delicious!
Excellent service, outstanding food
We had a great time. Everything is the best!
We ordered the baked oysters which were very good. I ordered the low country boil and my girlfriend ordered the stuffed chicken. They served my girlfriends meal to the table next to us. It took around 15 minutes for her food to get to our table, but it was very good and they took care of our entrees and gave her a free drink. The food was very good and our server was very nice and apologetic.
Excellent service and food, inexpensive bottle of wine, but small overpriced portions.
Very good. My wife and I enjoyed it immensely. Great place for a special Valentine dinner. Service very good as well
Exceeded our expectations. Very casual, comfortable atmosphere and the seafood was better than most more expensive places we've been. We started with the calamari and it was lightly breaded and cooked perfectly...so tender. We each chose from their fresh catches. She had the Arctic char in their Autumn preparation and she loved it. I had the stripped bass in their Coastal preparation, along with a side of pimento cheese grits, and it was seasoned and cooked perfectly. Our server was very attentive and helpful with our menu choices. We will be back soon!
I took my girlfriend here on a date the day BEFORE Valentines because it was actually the one year anniversary of our first date, so that seemed like a way to celebrate both occasions at once. We sat near the open kitchen next to a window, and it was a romantic setting for our meal and evening. The staff was very attentive, the food was fabulous and fresh, and the atmosphere casual and fun but also perfect for dressing up. We'll definitely go back again.
So loud that you can’t hear the person across a tiny table, packed in like sardines. We could hear every word of the conversations on each side of us. Had to wait about 10 mins for any service. Fish was good and fresh, but atmosphere was awful and cheap feeling. We don’t feel the need to return.
Went here years ago (~7 years) and loved it. Went this weekend and was honestly quite disappointed and underwhelmed! Ordered the yellowtail tuna miso-style. Miso style was advertised as having bok choy and mixed vegetables, but when I was served, only had raw spinach randomly sprinkled in. Texture was strange and taste was off. The lobster mac and cheese side was basically just mac and cheese with a tiny bit of lobster... another disappointment for a $12 side. Restaurant wasn't busy at all as we had an early reservation, but still seemed to take entirely too long for waitress to bring drinks and extra condiments that were requested. Had to remind the waitress for things that we had requested. Ambiance was great as were the oysters - but for a meal over $120 for two, was very underwhelmed. :(
The food was awesome! Loved the liw country boil and shrimp and grits.
This past weekend was the second visit to Goin Coastal that our baked oyster appetizer was served cold. Additionally, I had steamed mussels for my dinner which were served room temperature. The manager compted the baked oysters and I didn’t bother to complain about the mussels. So disappointing because the food here use to be so good. Not sure we will return.
Always love going to this spot. It’s good every time and my wife really enjoys getting the lobster Mac and cheese. Sweet waitresses.
We went for a casual night out.
We have dined here before and the food was great.
Tonight the food was awful. It was so salty we couldn't eat it.
The entre's came when we had just gotten the salads.
The entire dinner was a disaster.
Got seated right away, nice funky ambience, server was knowledgeable & friendly, although she was pretty busy. Appetizers, calamari was pretty typical, nothing special or different, Chesapeake oysters were good, although overpriced (dozen raw oysters, $28); main entrees were very good, especially the Coastal seasoned Mahi; my wife’s fried seafood platter was heavy on the French fries; dessert (creme brûlée ) was delicious. I thought $8 for a draft (Tropicalia) was a bit much as well.
Overall, we had a nice meal but for over $200 (including tip) for three of us (total two glasses of wine, two beers), I thought it was overpriced.
We sat at the bar; Melissa and Jeff were great behind the bar. They knew the food and liked the food. Refreshing to not just get a "everything is good" canned response. The fish was fresh and delicious. The arugala and crab salad was amazing. The atmosphere was relaxing. It was the perfect place for a Friday dinner after a long hard week. We'll be back!
If you appreciate excellent seafood, this place should be near the top of your list for Atlanta dining.
Great service and delicious food!
Friendly neighborhood gathering place!
Shrimp primavera was pretty good. Service was excellent...drinks were very well blended
Good food and service. Pricey for what you get.
Small celebration. Wife ordered the lobster special. It was amazing. Great attentive service. Not intrusive
First time here. Excellent choice. The food was oustanding. Chipotle collard greens were as good as I have ever had, The fish was fresh and awesome. Our server Terry was very attentive and knowledgable.
Really enjoy having dinner here, food is always great
Tried it for it’s great reviews on Yelp. Noted a Birthday when the reservation was made on Open Table with no acknowledgement. Parking is tough. Should have ordered a different entree. Service was excellent.
Reservation through Open Table for 7:30pm. Didn’t get seated until 8:30pm. Waited at bar where the service was terrible just to get pre dinner drinks. Food was fine but the wait and poor bar service will make me rethink this restaurant.
Great Fish selection, nice casual dining experience with a cozy environment!
Great selection of fresh fish with several options for preparation
Love this place. Food is excellent. Wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable. We've been several times and every time the food has been delicious. Nice casual atmosphere and not too noisy (you can carry on a conversation). We would highly recommend this establishment. Worth the drive.
Great food! Went for a birthday dinner and would go back and try different items!
