Excellent Brunch & Service!

First visit to Coast. Service was impeccable - our server made the best mimosas I've ever had. Delicious eggs Benedict and Veggie Omelet. Loved the beach house decor - nice artwork of muscle beach from the 50's/60's. Can't wait to go back.

We visit this restaurant quite often. It's probably one of the best dining experiences I've had. The service is exemplary, great selections, wonderful wine list (carry my fav Far Niente chard). Even wonderful dessert selection.

Casual and relaxed with high quality meals and service overlooking beach and boardwalk. Can be very busy during lunch hour and on weekend breakfast periods.

Wonderful drinks, atmosphere and menu. I was alone so I dined at the bar. Bartenders were very nice and knowledgeable. Food was outstanding as was the view. Will be back.

It is not their problem that we went there after dark, so we did not take advantage of the location that is probably very nice, facing the beach. Other than that, it was an average experience, average food. Cioppino was quite tasty but a little skimpy on seafood. Cake was a C-, despite of the raving from the waitress. Quite... More

We stopped into Shutters just to look around, it is such a landmark location. We decided to have a light lunch before heading to the airport and went to the CHEAPEST OPTION in the hotel, which was the beachside café. The café is very clean and crisp (tough when you are on the beach!) and the service was EXCELLENT! I... More

We walked the boardwalk for a long time looking for a breakfast cafe and as we could not find anything we came back to the hotel and were very pleased with this cafe and its food, service and ambience. A lovely patio to the side is cosy and very charming

Lovely views of the beach/ocean. Food is good, if not pricey, and the outdoor area is a great spot to watch the sun go down.

We had the special Christmas 3 course dinner menu which I must say was some of the best food I've ever had and I am quite a critic on food. We had a party of 8 and were seated in a corner on a large round table which was fantastic to include everyone in the conversation as well as providing... More
