Earlier this year they had baked stuffed lobster which was the best we have ever had. They also have excellent fish such as fish and chips and very good veal parmigiana and very good eggplant parmigiana.

I've been to the Coma many times. I've had many items on the menu including, burgers, pizza, pesto pasta, and more. I've never been disappointed with the food. The servers and bartenders are all very friendly and accommodating. Many talented bands have played on Sunday afternoons, always a good time. If I had anything negative to say it would be... More

The Beachcoma has been around for a long time. Current owners are locals and it is a family friendly style bar and grille. Food is mostly good with some standouts..... Great burger and fries, pizza, steak tips and ribs. Hearty food at the beach.

We visited Beachcoma while they had a private event, so the place was really busy. I had the caprese salad and the Cajun blackened salmon. The salad was quite good, the salmon was excellent. Waitstaff was attentive and friendly, despite being busy. Overall, a great experience.

We are staying nearby so this has become a nice place for a meal and to meet new friends. We have tried the pizza which is very good with a thin crispy crust. The clam chowder was thick and creamy and flavorful. Last night we had the Caesar salad topped with salmon which was very good also! We look forward... More

Clam chowder was nice and hot a little to peppery. Coconut shrimp did not taste like coconut overcooked. Baked haddock was disappointing Over all I was embarrassed for we took a couple of friends there for dinner they even said the fish n chips were overcooked. Maybe go for pizza and beer next time, hope they don't screw that up!

It was very beachy and casual. Great beers on draft. They have their own infused vodkas although we didn't try those. The owners should have a "vodka flight" so you can see which flavor is a favorite.
