5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2014 NEW

Food was delicious, service was slow, but the chef and our very pleasant waitress were apologetic, which made the wait easier to accept. The lobster stew was the most flavorful I have had in a restaurant, and two of our party had the special: Haddock stuffed with crab cakes and shrimp, excellent!!! The prices were very reasonable and the quality... More

It was a bit bright for my liking but the food was delicious. You must get the lobster roll. I've never seen so much lobster on a lobster roll. We also had the burger, which was equally delicious, as were the mussels and the pizza (and the crab and lobster tower). And, lest I forget, the bacon popcorn. I'm still... More

Located in The Daniel, the Coast restaurant could be difficult to find but worth your effort. The wait staff is warm and friendly. The menu is not lengthy, but the food very good. Scallops were excellent and the pizza delicious. The bar is cozy and inviting.

Loved this place when it was 10 Water Street, not so much on my first visit back to the new version. The lighting is very poor, I like ambient lighting but this was truly dark to the point of difficulty in reading the menu. There was only one waitress for the entire room, she was very pleasant but obviously overworked.... More

I have advanced multiple sclarosis, so handicapped accessibility is imperitive; for me. The Daniel Stone Inn 'is' handicapped accessible!! Drive your car around to the back of the Inn. You will see a stone pathway towards the left side of bldg. There is a slight incline, and curve to the pathway. Enter; the elevator is right there. Take it to... More

A friend and I recently dined at the Coast Bistro. When walking into the dinning/bar area, I wasn't sure it was open. It looked very dark, unfinished, back ceilings, no decorations. With a restaurant called Coast, I really expected a beach feel but it was anything but that. Now, the food was a different story. The menu was very interesting...you... More

We have been waiting for this bar to open since the big flood and finally it has. The new decor is really wonderful and the bar looks great too. The drinks had nice flavors but were so strong it was almost impossible to drink them. Hard to say that because its usually the opposite! The food was really good too,... More
