Ate there on a Friday while biking, sat outside on the picnic table in the sun. Had the chicken sandwich with a slice of ham, grilled pineapple and brie - really good!

Open during peak season, closes for off season in early October. Wonderful Duck boardwalk location with fantastic Sound side views. Casual atmosphere and good food - a la Mexican style. Had fish tacos with freshly caught wahoo. SUPERB! Pizza with duck confit excellent! Great local brewed beer selection. Not crazy about the chemically tasting frozen margaritas (I would not order...

We visited Coastal Cantina for dinner on a Friday night. It was during off season, the weekend after Labor Day, so it wasn't very busy, but the kitchen was backed up and not moving very quickly. The server did everything he could to speed things up and help us with our dinner and make us comfortable. Even though the food... More

Great little place to stop on a hot day for a draught beer or glass of wine. Chips and salsa were complimentary and drinks and friendly (entertaining) staff were a respite during a long walk/shopping trip.

My husband, son and I stopped here for a rest. They had frozen margarita's and I had a frozen sangria. My was not very good but they liked their drinks. We got queso dip and salsa. This was very good and the chips were amazing. We found out that they make them fresh everyday. The setting is not very comfortable... More
