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!

Short ribs and scallops were excellent! We sat at the bar, distanced from others and had a quiet evening with great drinks, delicious food and attentive service. Will definitely be back!

One Coastal never disappoints. We weren't comfortable sitting inside and they quickly called to confirm and outdoor reservation. They had music playing and the heaters going - it was such a nice night. The food is always incredible and the drinks are creative and delicious. We always make One Coastal a priority when we're in town and we'll continue to do so :)

This such a great experience! You won’t find a quainter high quality restaurant in the state of DE.

The menu is fantastic....the scallops appetizer with risotto is one of the best.

From the cocktails, food, service and ambiance ...One Coastal is off the charts

Planned this dinner well in advance knowing the few tables would be in high demand. It was the highlight of our week in Ocean City. The scallops and crab cakes were wonderful as were the ribeye and crab & spaghetti squash pesto. Looking forward to our next visit in the spring.

Cocktails were 1/2 pours at full price. Food average at best. Overrated & over priced

Hi Jeff! Thanks for letting us know about your experience - and I'm sorry you felt that our cocktails were tiny and overpriced, eek! As an assurance that we aren't just wingin' it behind the bar, our team measures all cocktails to an exact ounce (usually between 5 and 6 oz depending on the cocktail). Definitely feel free to voice these concerns to us while dining, as guest service is our #1 priority! We would have loved the opportunity to make it right. Thank you again for this info!

This was our first visit to this restaurant. The food was very fresh and we enjoyed our meal. Our service was outstanding. I feel the drinks were a little light on the pour. Overall , I would return again.

I must say that the food here is at a higher level versus other similar restaurants in the area. Only the ambiance could be improved. Also, to be able to enjoy a glass of French Chablis was a big plus.

Great Food. Great service and very timely. Noise level was a bit loud given a very loud lady who had to get in the last word. Good value for the money.
Would have preferred a few more beer choices. Maybe more local or regional brews.

The food has gone down hill. Our server was young and overly enthusiastic. Said two dishes were fantastic fabulous etc. They were not. Doesn’t have the cool vibe it used to have, and need some new menu items.

Delightful dining experience beginning to end...except we didn’t want it to end!! A great dining experience is when your tastebuds come alive from first cocktail thru each course, conversation flows, service is on point, and you get a handwritten card and complimentary champagne to wish you a Happy 39th Anniversary!
