I just had one of the most delicious meals I've had in a long time. The coast chowder had chunks of lobster and white fish in every spoonful, they followed that with an amazing shrimp scampi. Just when I didn't think it could get any better, we had the chocolate sampler for dessert. The chocolate cake was heavenly it melted... More

Decided to try the Coast Bar again after a good time a while back. Made a reservation and was promptly seated upon arrival, then it all went downhill from there. Our waitress, or should I say the only waitress on a Saturday night during a major holiday weekend, was basically non-existant. We waited twenty minutes before she came back to... More

Food was fresh and delicious. lobster pot pie was tasty, maybe could use a little more chunks of lobster ( seeing how it is Maine ) Steak was tender and delicious. French fries were fantastic. Bar was well stocked, good draft beer selection. Nice way to end an evening

Thanks so much for the compliments! We do our best to get the details right: tender steak, crispy fries, great bar atmosphere. We'll definitely put our efforts into getting the lobster pot pie more to your liking, glad you found it tasty though. Hope to have you back again soon to spend another great evening with us at Coast. Cheers! More

Trying to surprise my mother-in-law isn't easy and selecting a restaurant she hasn't sampled in the Bath/Brunswick area proves even more difficult.

I ate there on sat Oct 4. My waitress was awesome. The drinks were nice. The food was terrible. Undercooked burger. Stale bread. Soggy fries..waited over 35 mins for a burger and salad. What a shame. Great service..beautiful hotel and bar..food is a joke. Do not eat here.

The food was very good. I had the lobster roll which was full of sweet meat and not overdone with the sauce. My husband had the chicken sandwich which was huge and very tasty.

Hi Fiseagal, Thanks for your compliments on our food; particularly our lobster roll. As you know we've got some stiff competition here in Maine with all things lobster-related, so we're so glad you enjoyed your meal. Next time you're in our neck of the woods, be sure to stop by Coast Bar + Bistro. Cheers! More
