Farm-to-table
What makes us special is what's so hard to put into words! We are a farm to table restaurant located in the heart of Fenwick Island, DE. In addition to Fenwick being an amazing seasonal location for thousands of summer visitors in a year, it also happens to be where my husband Scott & I grew up. Our whole lives were spent on this exact beach, making memories with family and eating the local cuisine. As we grew up, moved away, traveled, had adventures, and made memories...we were unknowingly always gearing up to pack our bags and head back home. (and what better place is there than that?!) One Coastal is a serious love affair between food and restaurant magic, as my husband and I bring a combined 35+ years in the service industry and countless other experiences to the plate. We've got the farm, the table and the super rad vibe that only happens when your staff is your family and they truly believe in what you do. We are humbled to come to work every day, that's for sure!

The best restaurant by far in Fenwick and I’m not sure anything in Ocean City can even come close. Food was incredible, drinks fantastic and the hostess does her job excellently! We already have booked dinners for the rest of the summer!

Our server Rina (sp?) was great. We tried a few of the new items on the menu and one of the specials, and they were all fantastic. One Coastal never disappoints.

As always the staff and the food were top notch. My husband ordered the filet mignon which he absolutely loved. He said it was really buttery. The crabcakes are all crab, no cake 😀. Overall an awesome dining experience. Hope to be back soon.

We really like this place, but it’s so small, that it is very difficult to get a reservation.
This time, we had seats at the bar. I had the cauliflower and asparagus soup as an appetizer. It was just ok. I felt it was rather thin.
I also ordered the appetizer shrimp and grits as my main course. It was perfect! Key lime pie for dessert was also delicious.

My husbands steak was very good, but the roasted heirloom carrots were very unappealing looking. They looked like they had been under someone’s refrigerator for a year. Sometimes, regular veggies are the better choice. Gus carrot cake, however, was delicious!

The pleasant greeting we received when we arrived made us feel special, like they had been waiting for us to arrive. The service was great and everyone who worked there stopped by the table to check on us. Very attentive. I had such high expectations that I’m afraid, I’m afraid the food didn’t wow me. Worth a second try.

Started with a Caesar salad and app size shrimp and grits amd a specialty cocktail. Ordered the Cauliflower steak with asparagus and my husband had the filet with roasted carrots and mashed potatoes. I chose another delicious cocktail for dessert amd my husband chose the key lime pie! Great to be back in persons for dining! Still the best food around!

My companion commented that he never had a steak that literally melted in his mouth. I tried a piece and it was amazing. The lamb shank was equally delicious! Sat at the bar and enjoyed a Coastal crush as well.

The food is always superb here! But the ventilation system is very poor. My friend was coughing quite a bit and my eyes were irritated almost immediately. There must be a way to do better.

As always great service, interesting menu with subtle adjustments, prepared excellently, yummy cocktail creations. Extra touches they did not need to do but did to make it better. Crab cake and brown butter scallops were delicious. Could stand to pace a little more slowly so I can spend more quality time with my wife there!

our dinner was fantastic. Felt very lucky to be able to get a RSVP for Mother day weekend. I had heard about their cinnamon rolls and got a half dozen to go for Sunday Mothers day brunch. If you want great service and good food this is a hidden gem in Ocean city

It was such a great experience at One Coastal! There were three of us dining. Two of us got the blackened sea bass and one of us got the bone in pork chop. All three dishes were divine! For dessert, we shared a double layer chocolate cake (split in our own separate plates), oh my GOD! Yummmmm! The cocktail menu is really creative and their wine list is good too! Can't recommend it enough. Go!!

We have been her a number of times. I would have to say previous meals were more enjoyable - sea bass and quinoa were a little dry - and caesar salad had no anchovies or garlic and was bland. One meal will not keep us away!
Overall this is an outstanding restaurant and we look forward to our next visit.
