About the restaurant
Coast 236 takes reservations for tables of 1-6 guests only. Sorry, service animals only.

TABLES CAN ONLY BE HELD FOR 15 MINUTES FROM ORIGINAL RESERVATION TIME.

Every coastline brings with it an air of freshness and wonder, an inspiration in every ebb and flow. Coasts can be recognizable and new … predictably unpredictable in a way that can surprise or delight. But no matter the geography, there is a familiarity and a connection. At Coast 236, the rhythm of familiarity and freshness is our inspiration. Sourcing meaningful ingredients from water and land, we passionately craft approachable coastal inspired fare with unexpected details.

About the restaurant
Quite simply, Obstacle No. 1, aims to be your place for craft cocktails in West Michigan. This handsomely appointed lounge will offer a unique combination of Basque influence in both the cocktails & atmosphere. We look forward to helping you cross that first Obstacle, over drinks of course.
