Coast 236 takes reservations for tables of 1-6 guests only. Sorry, service animals only.

TABLES CAN ONLY BE HELD FOR 15 MINUTES FROM ORIGINAL RESERVATION TIME.

Every coastline brings with it an air of freshness and wonder, an inspiration in every ebb and flow. Coasts can be recognizable and new … predictably unpredictable in a way that can surprise or delight. But no matter the geography, there is a familiarity and a connection. At Coast 236, the rhythm of familiarity and freshness is our inspiration. Sourcing meaningful ingredients from water and land, we passionately craft approachable coastal inspired fare with unexpected details.

    Tonight my husband and I treated my Real Estate business partner and his husband to dinner at Coast. We were greeted by the kitchen staff as we walked by to our table by the window. Spring is coming and it was great to see so many friends walk by and wave. We were promptly greeted by Evan. He welcoming smile and offers to explain the specialty drink menu was helpful and we decided to try the Coast Old Fashioned made with premium tequila. I might add it was so tasty we decided to have a second. We all were in the mood for seafood/fresh fish. Evan suggest the tuna appetizer to start, the chef has combined so many wonderful flavors in this dish. We loved the crunchy capers and fruit with the tuna. Next we tried both seafood options. I enjoyed the scallops. What a perfect balance of textures, flavors and ingredients. We all complimented the staff on the food and great service! Certainly one of the best dinners we've had in Saugatuck and we dine out too much!

    A wonderful dining experience last night in every way! Celebrating a birthday of a special close friend, and on our arrival there was a card for her at our table signed by the whole staff. What a nice touch! The ambience was awesome, too cool to use the attractive patio…… but soon, and the dining room was lovely. The menu was innovative, fresh and very delicious. The service could not have been any better, servers Jim and Tanna were simply outstanding; knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Well worth the drive up from St. Jos!

    Easily one of the best restaurants in Michigan period. The service is 5 star the food is 5 star the ambiance is 5 star. The restaurant far exceeded my expectations. You cannot go wrong with any food selection. but our personal favorite is the risotto and scallops. The staff was super attentive. Botton line well worth the price tag.

    Excellent service! The salmon was prepared to my liking and complemented well with sauce. The crème brûlée was perfect ending to a delicious meal.
