I've been to Coastal Flats around half a dozen time and have never been disappointed. Food is good and the atmosphere is fun without being too noisy.

With a number of competitors closed on Monday we chose Coastal Flats for my birthday for its convenient location and reputation as part of the Great American Restaurants family (we are big fans of Artie's and Sweetwater). Parking can be a bit of a challenge since their lot is shared with a number of other businesses, but we did fine.... More

Great food, excellent wait staff and a nice airy boat house atmosphere. As a displaced New Englander, I highly recommend the Lobster Roll or the Lobster Club Salad!

This restaurant was recommended to me while I was on a business trip in the area and it was very very good. Very busy and they didn't take reservations so we had to wait about 30 minutes to get a table, but sometimes you just have to be willing to wait. The food is great, I will defiantly go back... More

Met friends at Coastal Flats for lunch while traveling around northern Virginia. First time there. Very crowded and popular. Service was great and the meals were outstanding for all four of us (chicken salads, grouper fingers, and grilled shrimp). Highly recommended.
