Went there with a friend and the food was awesome. Specially the starter shrimp flitters with corn sauce . Wow like to order that one 1000 times. The dish of main course was ok but nothing special , I ordered jumbo shrimps and it was good. Polite personal and crowded environment . Like to go back , recommended

I visited Coastal flats for the first time during a recent college tour for my daughter. The restaurant is in close proximity to GM making it an excellent choice for parents visiting the college. The restaurant has a great atmosphere. Even during lunch rush hour the wait was very short. The wait staff was courteous enough. The only negative I... More

I had a consulting project in Fairfax, so visited the area a few days every month for five months. I just stumbled across Coastal Flats (and I am glad I did!) This is by far my favorite restaurant in the area, It is a new restaurant with detailed, floor-to-ceiling murals that set the tone for the experience. The interior is... More

Excellent! I had a burger here which was really good. I'm a burger fanatic so it's good that I liked it. This place is huge! We sat near the bar area because I had my dog who laid outside while we dined at the bar where the sliding doors were wide open. All in all, I enjoyed this place and... More

In town for university orientation, fell into a dining delight! Start your meal with the "BLUE CRAB & ROCK SHRIMP FRITTERS" - melt in your mouth delicious and a favorite of wife and daughter. Drunken Ribeye was tender and best steak I've tasted in a very long time. The wife's "Ahi" and daughter's "salmon" were to die for. We have... More

Costal Flatts is just another terrific execution if the Great American restaurant chain. The staff is attentive, well trained, and efficient. The food is always served as ordered, hot, and fresh. This is one of the best values for lunch or dinner.

We called ahead with a table of 11 for my son's special event. They were more than happy to accommodate us, and the tables were ready for us the minute we walked in. The hostess was friendly and the manager was very nice too. The restaurant was not busy around 2pm and the server was able to take all of... More

The Rock Fish Fritters excellent, our order of Calamari was mistakenly entered as the Shrimp app but we ate it anyway and it too was delicious. The server and... More

Costal Flats is one of the "Great American Restaurants" that includes Artie's, Ozzie's, Jackson's and a few others in the Virginia suburbs that all share similarities in that the service is excellent. Costal Flats has a Cuban feel with a school of sculpted fish hanging above you as you enter. The food is very good but some of the sauces... More
