Great Seafood restaurant. Lobster was a little overcooked. Shrimp cocktail was huge! Cesar's salad was huge! All sides were excellent.

Large portions of delicious food at a fair price. There were 5 adults in our party. We had appetizer—shrimp cocktail, entrees ranging from Parmesan crusted chicken, to scallops, to an entree salad with seared tuna. All were very good. Cocktails were tasty. Desserts were amazing!

Food was good, a bit pricy but worth it. Waiters, waitresses, and servers were all very nice. We had a reservation for 6:45 and didn’t get seated until closer to 7:30 which kind of set the tone for the whole night.

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.

Consider this the best seafood house in town. We tried their special this time and didn't care for it, too much gnocci and not enough seafood. The service was great. Our waitress was terrific. A large party close by was very noisy with their celebrations but otherwise was very comfortable.

Coastal Grille
Responded on February 26, 2020

Ken, thanks for the great review! I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the special because it has been one of the most applauded specials we have run in the last few years. Please don't ever hesitate to let a manager know so we can get you something that you will love. We appreciate your patronage & we look forward to serving you again soon.

The only complaint is that I make reservations well in advance and specify a booth every time , the last 3 times they either say no booth available or they are all ready reserved. Yes, by me. I made a Valentines reservation a month before and specified a booth for 4 people, not only did I not get the booth, they stuck us in between 2 other tables, very disappointed. I do all my reservation through open table and specify seating in the notes section, they must not be reading that part at all. Besides the seating issue, food & service very good.

We were seated immediately on a busy Valentine's Day. Our server took our drink order and was back quickly with them. We ordered an appetizer (Lobster cheese dip) which was very good. Our entrees were brought just as we were finishing the app. The food was cooked very well, the service was attentive but not rushed. The drink selection was great with a good selection of local and national draft beer. We will visit this location again. Great job!

We arrived a little early, the place was slammed! Checked in, received a pager, waited appr., 10 minutes till 7p and right on time, escorted to our table! Looked at the menu, ordered drinks, all good, but I don't recommend the pickle martini. Very little Kettle One and taste like watered pickle juice. Next, a Beefeater martini, good, a slight bit too much vermouth. Apps, calamari and ahi tuna, and bread, excellent! All, loved their meals! Mahi, plain grilled and blackened was good, my scallops and asparagus, a touch over salted. The shrimp, crabcake and tilapia were good. Shared choc brownie and salted carmel banana cake, excellent! Service during the meal was excellent! The cost was reasonable. I would recommend, try for yourself!

I'm pretty torn on this one. Despite making a reservation, we were seated in the bar area which was very loud. The food was good - but not amazing. We had the fried shrimp appetizer, and they were very small shrimp, but the serving size was adequate for the price. The island sauce was really good and very different. Lobster bisque was good. Husband had the crab cakes and said they were fine, but not noteworthy. I had the scallops, which were served on an undressed, raw spinach salad. I was expected sautéed spinach and some kind of a butter sauce. The serving of scallops was huge for the price, and the sear was good. It was just a bit boring. The seasonal winter veggie was maple Brussels sprouts with bacon, and I have to say I'd go back again just for those. Five star side dish.

One of our favorite restaurants in the Wyomissing/Berks County area. The food is always frrsh, nice variety on the menu and service is always great. A big plus . . . they take reservations, which is not usual anymore. I would recommend this restaurant to couples and families alike. Atomsphere is nice, and plenty or parking.
