My family was celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. Angela, our server, was excellent and checked in periodically if we needed anything. The cuisine was fabulous and tasty. We had the special shrimp/scallop entree, charred swordfish and pasta marinara. The cocktails we had were also done very well. There was a bit of a crowd for a Tuesday night, but the noise level wasn't bad. We had a table overlooking a gorgeous sunset. Overall, we had a great time on this special occasion. Highly recommend.

I would give the Coast Guard house a five star rating. We both had the fillet and it was melt in your mouth good. And if you want to sit outdoors next to the ocean, I don’t know any place that would be any closer overlooking Narragansett Bay.  The view is spectacular. Our waitress katherine was very attentive. I give her 5 stars too. I would definitely recommend this place.

We enjoyed everything! The whipped feta app… ing! So delicious! Fish tacos… abundantly stuffed with great ingredients, and the blackened cod, also so flavorful. Our waiter, Cameron, was so sweet and efficient. He provided excellent service and was just a lovely young man. Thank you for a great dinner!

This place is great! I went for a Mother's Day brunch and while the menu was rather small, there was something for everyone to choose from. The views from the Rooftop are very nice. My only complaint was the loud noise level, however we were seated right near the DJ and speaker and it was much quieter at tables farther, but it did not ruin the experience at all (would have added to the experience if I was with friends rather than my parents and grandparents). I highly reccommend for a fun, trendy experience with great views of Downtown Providence!
