    The food has gone down over the years. I guess they don’t care because the place is so gorgeous people will always want to eat there, myself included, but the food used to be GREAT and now it’s just fine.

    Wife dinner awesome my dinner was totally undercooked. Waitress saw me at least 4 times not eating. I finally had to call her over and explain. They offered me another dinner which I refused since my wife had finished hers 20 minutes earlier. Nice place got a bad meal with a really bad waitress.

    We celebrated our anniversary at your restaurant and we were so happy with the service and the meal. Our waiter Randell was attentive, very personable, never felt rushed. Our friends with us had never been and they liked everything you had to offer. We recommend the raw bar excellent. We all tried something different and the meals were cooked to perfection.

    I'm a very old customer of CGH, and it was wonderful to get back for a lunch after Covid. Nothing much has changed. I walk with a cane, and they have valet parking, so no problem. We reserved a lunch spot a couple of days in advance, so got a great seat. Our waiter (server) Seamus was extremely knowledgeable, and kept track of our needs without being obtrusive. We were there at noon on a Thursday, and not crowded at all, but around 1:00 it filled up with Senior citizens, or those almost there. An upmarket crowd--lots of Prada and Gucci handbags. Might have been a club organization--should have asked but didn't . Glad to be back

    Brought my mother here for her first time and we were sadly disappointed. She ordered the corn salad and said it tasted like corn from a can. Both our entrees arrived lukewarm. The service was excellent, as always. Not sure what happened in the kitchen.

    When I made my reservation I requested a window seat. I did this because the people coming to dinner with us hadn't been to the CGH. The reception person passed several window seats the were empty, like 6 tables and brought us to the very back of the ground floor and placed us near a table of 10 extremely loud people along with their screaming children. There were several tables open near the window that remained empty the entire evening. It was so loud, we could hardly hear ourselves think. We asked why we couldn't be put near a window, and were told seating was based on what server was next. WHAT? None of us will be back. That obviously doesn't matter to you, but we will also tell others of our unfavorable review. Don't ask for seating preferences if you don't plan to acknowledge the request.

    Coast Guard House is always fantastic, this time a little off. The food was great, I highly suggest the lobster corn tamale appetizer and they make the best scallops no matter how you get them. The service was slower than usual this time. Our drink order took a long time to come and once they did it took a little bit for our apps order to be taken. I had to ask for bread. Once the appetizer came out the rest of the meal went fine. Overall time was 2hrs 20mins for four diners, longer than usual time. Will definitely be back though. Great food and cocktails.

    Indoor dining room needs to address the noise level….especially coming from the bar. Architectural acoustical baffles should be installed! Using the word “energetic” to describe the sound level misses the mark re: feedback. One of the descriptors was “quiet” but you didn’t bite the bullet and use the more appropriate next level words, “ too loud,” for the final choice. After all the renovations and improvements I find it hard to believe no one thought it necessary to address the noise level in the dining room. FYI I am a resident, not a tourist, and would bring my guests there more often if we could hold a conversation during diner.

    We waited until the end of the season to make a reservation hoping for it not to be crowded, it was still still busy, but it didn’t matter. Great place to go, more pricey then last year, but excellent as always. The staff were hustling around to fill orders and asking each other for help so meals were delivered all at once. Very attentive filling waters and clearing plates. Worked like a real team! Our Waitress Tabitha was really great!

    Service ok Disappointed with their arrogance for not paying attention to simple table location request despite booking weeks in advance. Placed in deep back but paid ocean front prices certainly. Food solid. Very noisy with all the window and stone wall and being stuffed in back corner.

    Made a reservation early the same day for 2:00pm on a Saturday. On arrival, area was extremely congested as expected. Parking lot at restaurant was full so we drove around the block and found on street parking a 1/4 mile walk away. Not bad considering the time and beach traffic. We arrived for our outdoor seating about 20 minutes early and our table was not available until our scheduled reservation which again was fine however there was no area for guests to relax or have a drink while waiting. We were seated on the deck with an excellent view of the waterfront. Wait staff was very attentive and we had an very good light meal with drinks. Fish Taco special with Mahi Mahi was very good but my wife wasn’t fond of some ingredients. I had Tuna entree which was tasty but slightly overdone while searing for my preference. Waiter recommended the cheesecake for dessert and we’re glad he did. Nice finish to meal.
