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!

We love One Coastal and recommend it but we had bad service Friday night. The service was slow and they completely forgot our drink order so we cancelled it. Food was spectacular as always.

This is a delightful place and such a great addition to the Eastern Shore and beach. Great food, with a unique menu. Great care in sourcing ingredients. I would highly recommend One Coastal if you are looking for nice dinner while at the beach vs the standard.

I’m from Bay Area CA where I’ve dined at farm to table as well as restaurants on scale of one coastal. I think server was new and also sick. Did not share prices of specials or steak. Martini not great prob shaken vs stirred. Goat cheese app was VG.
Skate entree had very little greens and over salted.
Choc cake a bit dry.

Hands down BEST Restaurant at the Beach - We go on a regular basis and love to support local business.
Had Tuna special and was AWESOME --- Cocktails are spectacular and Farm to Table approach shines through.
Deserts - KEY LIME Pie - I consider myself an aficionado of Key Lime Pie and One Coastal's in by far best I have ever had -

This is our favorite when at the beach. Very small, but that is one reason why it is so special. Service is particularly exceptional. The open kitchen adds to the experience as well. And the food is FRESH, well-prepared; wonderful. Plenty of choices. The crabcake was light, well-seasoned (NO breading/fillers). We can't wait to go back.

Too loud, too cramped, sunlight blinding and proteins were good but side were bland, the grits were like soup. Not relaxing, and not anything other than the steak and service that were positive.

Our server was a bit quirky but in general all was good. If an establishment chooses not to post prices, the server should be ready with that information rather than making a production out of finding out the prices. That was the only negative with our party. Will definitely return and have already recommended to friends with the stipulation that a reservation is a must.

I cannot say enough about One Coastal. We eat at this gem once or more each month and have never been disappointed. The service is friendly and relaxed, the cocktails are adventurous and usually feature fresh grown herbs, don’t pass on the bread appetizer!, and every entree we’ve ordered has been fresh and superb. reservations are a must even off season.

The best meal I’ve had in The OC area in years!
- Amazing execution on food and drink, all courses
- Good, attentive, friendly service
- appropriate, open style dining in a rustic, local ambience on the smaller side
- great value for the quality
- farm to table, local source vibe
- Short Rib and Pork Chop are solid non seafood entree choices
- would definitely come back

Great food!! Food took a bit longer than a previous visit and not super crowded. Worth the wait. My only suggestion for ambiance would be to block more of the light from the kitchen. It's very bright and distracting from most angles.
