The bench in the lobby ate my keys when we were putting up our rain gear. There shouldn't be gaps that an entire set of car keys can fall into never-never land.

Our server, Josh was AMAZING...attentive, polite, relaxed and professional. We found out during our meal that that night was his FIRST "unattended"! He is truly as ASSET to the wonderful staff at Coastal Grille!
And, we were delightfully surprised by a "rocket sparkler" :) in my "chocolate bag" dessert (MY FAV!) for our anniversary!
Thank you, Coastal Grille, for yet another outstanding meal and great service!
We will be back...again...and again!

Great place. We go here for special occasions since it is the only good seafood restaurant in the area. Even so their food is on par with some seafood restaurants in Philly. Prices are better than the city but still the price to portions could be better. Given this is Covid-19 dining they did an awesome job and I am happy to pay a little extra knowing that we will get a great meal with great service and feel like the people working care about our business. They do have outside dining but we are indoors and felt very comfortable with the precautions that were in place. Thanks for a great time!

Reservations for 1pm on Valentine’s Day. Got seated right at 1. From time we were seated to when we got our food it was less then 30 mins. Both got twin lobster tails. Cooked perfectly and probably the best lobster we ever had. Price wasn’t bad at $31 and service was great.

Hello, my name is Rachel Thomas & I'm the General Manager of Coastal Grille. I'm very sorry to hear about your recent experience at Coastal Grille. We are much better that what happened & being sat 45 minutes after your reservation time is completely unacceptable. I would love the opportunity to speak with you about this visit. If you would be so kind to call me at 610-743-4006 or send your contact information to coastalgrille@yahoo. Looking forward to speaking with you. Sincerely, Rachel.
