    Great service, and very good bar drinks (the "Double Down" was tasty). Food was good not great, solid dishes but not a lot of flair or interesting flavors. Very nice ambiance and both the hostess and server were excellent, even getting us a booth last-minute.

    Business dinner. Great meal excellently prepared. We had a swordfish special and the Cajun blackened redfish. The restaurant was packed (that's good!) but noisy. Some guests around the bar were especially loud and other guests were obviously disturbed. It's a favorite place and we'll be back again.

    If I had one complaint on our anniversary they wanted to put us in a two top in a very crowded room. We objected and they graciously accommodated us. The food was brilliantly prepared, the service was absolutely amazing (our server was very friendly. But, not conspicuous). The anniversary card signed by all was really cute.

    Our server was fantastic! She was friendly, helpful, and attentive without being intrusive. She made my dad’s birthday celebration special. The shrimp and crab dip was good, but would be better with toast points as the homemade bread was too much for the dip. My dad loved his oysters and my mom’s scallops were some of the best she’s ever had. My brother and sister in law both had the pompano fish special and said it was very good. My shrimp and grits were just OK. Desserts were delicious. Overall, very pleased and will be back.

    Be sure to make a reservation as the place is hoppin. Attentive hosts and informative wait staff. Drink order was very slow. Food is fresh, presentation and recipes are upscale. Dinner was delicious and an excellent price point. As the restaurant has high ceilings, be prepared for a loud noise level.

    We have been a customer for over 8 years. GC has been one of our dependable dining experiences. Always good food and service. We were disappointed in our recent experience. The food was so overly salted that it could not be finished. The portions seemed to be smaller, but this may be more confirmation of the cost of doing business has gone up. Our waitress did a good job of handling the situation; however, this was not the only complaint regarding the same seasoning issue. We will try to visit GC again in the near future, but another disappointment would end our patronage.

    Goin Coastal was wonderful. The cocktails at the bar before dinner were great. The hostess was very professional and accommodating. Server - Madi - excellent. The food - beyond great. Corvina preparation and cook was as good as any seafood I’ve ever had. Shrimp and grits was creative and tasty. 5 stars +++.

    I've been several times and this time the food was not up to par. I took my girlfiend for our anniversary and the ambiance was good, the service was good but the fish was dry and for a place that specializes in seafood that was a disappointment.

    One of our favorite dinner spots - had the crab fritters to start, cocktail, pompano Parmesan crusted for me and halibut special for my guy, ended with triple chocolate mousse — everything was fabulous and Courtney was a wonderful gift of service. She timed everything perfectly. Lovely dinner as always. Highly recommend!

    The monkfish blackened with a side of collard greens was delicious. My husband had the fried shrimp which were battered, fried and seasoned perfectly. The meal was served with a light mixed green salad with mini corn muffins. It was a perfect amount to complement the meal. Being it was our anniversary so we ordered the decadent chocolate mousse pie which was excellent—creamy, rich chocolate goodness. Our server Mandy was fantastic. Personable. Attentive. Always pleasant. The Lucky to have this wonderful gem in Canton. It’s a go to restaurant when friends and family are in town.

    Phil was our server for our party of 4. He was very attentive while multitasking! We ordered 4 different entrees. Crab and shrimp au gratin appetizer was delicious. Our entrees were delicious. We noted a change in the cheese grits : the texture seemed different? maybe over cooked... We will return. We have dined here for several years.

    This was my second visit to the restaurant. I think our waitress was having a rough night. When we were escorted to our table, there was soapy water all over the floor as if a mop bucket had turned over, emptying its contents. Unfortunately, it kind of tainted her attitude going forward. After we were served our water and tea, my friends asked for lemon and straws and she literately asked, “Do you need it now??? Because I have to walk to the other side of the restaurant to get it.” My friend who was kinda surprised that she would ask such a question responded “ Well, yes, I do.” We had not yet had a chance to review the menu, so that was rather off-putting. There was something else she said that was inappropriate, but I didn’t catch it, as I was talking to someone else at the table. At my first visit, the service was excellent, as was the food. My second visit was not as enjoyable, but I’m willing to let it go because she had a huge mess to clean up as we arrived at our table. I’m sure she will as t happy about having to deal with that.

    I have to say this is likely our last experience here. The Grouper I had last night was like rubber. I ended up not eating much and chose not to complain. I thought it was just grouper after getting home and looking online I see the reason it was hard/rubbery was it was way overcooked. Lesson learned… in today’s cost market what they serve is just not worth it to us.
