Coastal Kitchen & Raw Bar
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.
Lovely setting and great food! All the meals were pretty as well as delicious.
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.
Great place to stop at if you're en route to another destination. Food is fantastic and you have a great view.
Seafood ravioli was not edible.
Very fresh seafood - top quality salads
Great view and great service
We have eaten at this restaurant many times over the years and it has always provided superb service by cordial staff with excellent food. This visit was no different.
Outside seating with food friends and fun !
Casual wonderful spot for our family dinner.
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!
Very good food and selection and great service!
Great brunch food and service again. Amazing Aperol Elderflower Spritz!
Wonderful water view brunch on the deck! Food was fantastic with great service.
Mother daughter get away
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!
Love the Gumbo!
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.
Great Food! Sat in the deck and enjoyed the background of the marina and the beautiful evening!
Really enjoyed our experience. The food was great and the staff was very tentative to our needs. Would go back in a heartbeat.
Lovely lunch on the beautiful deck. I had the Shrimp and Grits which were wonderful.
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.
Nice view of the boats during sunset. The lobster nachos were really good and got me really full. Drinks were good too
Food is disappointing. Oysters were also sold out. The only vegetarian pasta dish for my dad was flavorless. However, food is a fair price with a nice view.
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.
Food was excellent as usual. Felt very clean - everyone spaces out. Servers wearing mask.
Great food. Great service from I think his name was Brendon.
Can't go wrong if you choose to dine at Coastal Kitchen. The food is fresh and delicious, the atmosphere fantastic...we were seated by a window overlooking the water and our service was excellent.
Great location with fabulous view of the marina .... great service from friendly servers and delicious food fresh from the Atlantic..... nice evening!!
We sat on the porch - food was great but the server not so much. We were his only table outside and he kept forgetting we were out there.
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.
Fantastic dining experience! Whether it is Sunday Brunch, a weekday lunch with co-workers, or a Friday night dinner with my hunny, I always have a wonderful time and delicious food at Coastal Kitchen.
Food was great, portions were huge.
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.
Food so so,could have used a little more spice, value so so, our table could have had more lighting, hostess was very nice and accommodating
The food was amazing! We had the duck egg rolls and raw oysters for an appetizer. My husband order the steak and it was poked perfectly. I had the crab ravioli and it was delicious. We will definitely be back the next time we are in town.
Loved it, crab claws and shrimp n grits were amazing!
