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!

I am unsure if we would recommend One Coastal to a friend. Maybe it was an off night. It was our 45th anniversary dinner for husband and me. I had read the great reviews and chose this restaurant. Imagine how disappointed I was to first...the $9 for bread was just one large roll...and not in enough sauce to really dip it well. The pesto sauce for my husband's pasta tasted congealed and dry in the mouth. His shrimp were not cooked enough. Worse was my salad with chicken. The leaves had to be picked out because there were so many very wilted ones. It was very disappointing. The wait staff was lovely and I suppose it was the manager who was told and came over to our table. He offered me a complimentary dessert which was excellent and they did take my meal off the bill. I am unsure whether to try this place again because it is pricey and we want to be assured of a great meal.

This was our third time back. As usual, food and service was excellent and Exec chef came to the table to discuss in detail my wife's various food allergies and designed a meal around them. Would probably be our favorite place if it were easier to get in during the summer. They are deservedly very popular.

It’s one of my favorite places on the eastern shore. Every menu choice is sensational. The cocktails of the day are unique and beautifully presented. The service is always friendly and extremely professional. Every time I have gone there it’s always been such a pleasant experience.

This was our first visit to ONE Coastal. We were so delighted with the entire dining experience and so looking forward to returning. The service, especially at the bar was fantastic. The cocktails were awesome and so was our fresh bread appetizer. Our dinners, a filet and a pork chop were utterly amazing!!! One Coastal is my new favorite restaurant when we are in OC!!!

Disappointing!!! We were put at a small corner table for two, facing a wall under protest. Although we had reservations, we would have to wait 45 mo Tues for a better table. Food just o.k. My filet was tender, but my partner's cobie was dry. I was compensated with dessert. I hope for better results next summer when I return.

If you are looking for food and cocktails that will blow your mind, this is the place!
I have eaten at restaruants all over the world, not to mention a family member who is a chef that loves to cook for us, so we are a foodie family! This restaurant will not disappoint!
The thgoughtful extras for our special occasion were a really nice added touch. Excellent service too! This will always be on our list if we are within that area again! To say this is a hidden gem doesn't even come close to describing the culinary experience you will have here! Seasonal menu with only the freshest ingredients, skillfully prepared. Its just a WOW from us!

Two of us spent a lovely Sunday evening dining at One Coastal. I had never been there before so I was excited to try a place that came highly recommended. We each ordered wine and the goat cheese crostini appetizer. It was yummy. As a main course I ordered the Mahi special and my partner ordered the duck special. Both dishes were very flavorful and we thoroughly enjoyed them both. We will certainly dine here again. It is a small, busy place so you do need to make reservations way in advance.

The food was fabulous! Nice cute restaurant with great service! However, I couldn't get the cocktail I wanted and neither could my friend I was with. They didnt have all of the ingredients for either drink. They were mainstream drinks, nothing obscure. Both were martinis.

Probably our 10th visit to One Coastal. As usual the food was great! Wish I could say the same about service. Upon arrival we were immediately seated (reservations made a month previous). After that service went way down hill. Two tables (without reservations based on dialog with hostess) were seated soon after us. Both of these tables received immediate attention and in fact had pre dinner drinks before a server even came to our table. Once these other tables had drinks and were ordering apps, we got the attention of the hostess who graciously took our drink orders. Once server FINALLY came to our table we placed our order for fear of waiting too long because not sure of return. In previous visits servers were always willing to answer questions and explain specials etc. --- not the case this time. Very disappointing and will chalk it up as one bad experience ----- food is too good to pass up.

Miss seeing Tara at the bar. Hard to get server’s attention. Please don’t ask me to keep the silverware I used for my appetizer for the entree!
