We went for brunch on a Sunday. The setting is very nice, we sat outside looking at the marina, and it's beautiful. The food was fine, nothing remarkable. The service was subpar to say the least. Coffee and water was never refilled. Food order came out wrong, had to flag down the waiter (they have a food runner, the server doesn't deliver the food), sent it back, it came out different, but still wrong. I was frustrated so I just ate it and we left. Might go back but probably just for drinks.

The food was great, we were both very pleased. We experimented with the drinks at first, but the lemonade and bourbon drinks were overpowered by the mint, so we didn't enjoy them. That's just a personal preference though, I don't think they were made wrong. Our waitress quickly got us another drink that we enjoyed much more, so we were pretty happy. My only real complaint would be that the bartender muddled some fruit into my old fashioned and you're not supposed to do that, it only gets an orange peel, but that could just be me nitpicking.

Average food & below average wine, above average prices. Poor lighting and acoustics. A very annoying high pitched sound from the dish washing machine throughout the meal. Not a pleasant dining experience.

A huge disappointment in every way. Walked past dirty tables to table. Furnishings are worn out and need an update. Unprofessional server and no mention of daily catch special. We did observe the hostess cleaning tables. The food was not attractively arranged on a plate but more like a cafeteria presentation. Vegetable risotto was inedible. Ravioli did not have any lobster and the sauce was overwhelming the dish. The cocktails were not good either- a super sweet old fashion and a skinny margarita. We have been here thru the years but I would say the experience did not measure our previous experiences at all.

I loved our meals and drinks at Coastal Kitchen!! I have never had a bad meal there! The service was awesome and the waitress was so observant that she saw a greeting card and asked if it was someone’s birthday- when we told her it was our 19th anniversary she said our desert was on them! Everything was lonely and we will absolutely be back!

It was our first visit to the area and this place had excellent reviews, so we headed there for brunch. I had the smoked salmon and goat cheese omelet and a bottomless strawberry Mimosa. My husband had an enormous chicken and waffle concoction. Service was excellent and so was the view!

The food was excellent as was the service. However, we were seated by a large party that was enjoying themselves immensely so it was a tad bit noisy.

Great location with really good food in Saint Simons Island! One of the few places where you get a water view while dining. The food was high-quality, and had great flavors.

Coastal was an amazing experience.

Only issue was found sent out of order and entrees came as we were enjoying our appetizer of peel and eat shrimp that was served after our salads.

This was our first visit. We enjoyed a casual dinner at a table outdoors overlooking the marina. Food and service were very good. The shrimp appetizer was excellent. The house-made seafood ravioli entree were very good. I would say excellent had the creme sauce not been so thick and overwhelming.

We’re looking forward to returning to Coastal Kitchen soon.

Happy to get safe outdoor seating for brunch, but the area could have been cleaner. Surprised to see scraps of paper, etc., on the deck. Woven seats were unraveling as well. But food and drinks were good and service was excellent as usual.

Had reservations for out door seating. Our table was on the covered porch overlooking the marina. Great view and setting. There was a little confusion on who was to serve our table but once that was straightened out the service was very good. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly and she wore her mask at all times - correctly. The food was excellent. The facilities are well maintained and clean. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for good seafood with nice views.

Very disappointing. The raw oysters had no flavor at all. The calamari and jambalaya were fair at best. Definitely not what the reviews has said. No chance we would go back.
