Traveled from San Jose to get my fix of LUMP crabcakes. Landed at Dulles airport and went directly to a restaurant called Coastal flats in Mclean Virgina for their crabcakesCost was $23 for 7.5 oz crabcake, coleslaw and fries. Fantastic cakes- no fillers. Service was slow here and seemed like the waiter had something on his mind besides his work... More

It's popular, so there is a wait -- but not too long and you can wander around the mall while waiting. Too many apologies about waiting, which make me wonder why. Long wait for the "ozzie" rolls, which were delicious -- ordered another basket but it never came. Dinner came almost too fast. The salmon was cooked medium, but was... More

I can't wait for the Gaitherburg location to open which is right around the corner from where I live. But the Tyson's location is terrific. Super friendly service. Ask and you shall receive if it is possible. Delicious appetizers. Try them all. Can't say enough about how good this place is.

We arrived to a crowded restaurant for lunch around noon on a Thursday, and had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. After being seated we had our orders taken right away and were given some complimentary doughnut rolls with honey butter. This is maybe the best table bread I've had anywhere. We liked it so much we asked... More

I love eating at Coastal Flats when I am in Tysons Corner. The customer service is always great. The wait is never to long but you can also call ahead for seating. My favorite is their Lobster Roll. I also love the Lobster Bisque and Deviled Eggs as appetizers. Be careful because the rolls are so good that you find... More

From appetizers to deserts....Coastal Flats manages to exceed the ordinary with superb blends of spices and tried and tested recipies. Try the shrimp and crab fritters with corn salsa and a wicked tomatoe base. I had the short smoked salmon with pureed cauliflower. Absolutely fabulous! I can't wait for this restaurant's new location coming to King Farm in September in... More

This place has a good menu but I can't get past their cheeseburgers. They are the best I've ever had. I don't know what they use for seasoning, but it's awesome. The flavor is so good I have to keep myself from inhaling the burger. They are consistent thickness (not super thick, I don't like thick burgers), flavoring and always,... More

I had the hickory grilled snapper with mashed cauliflower and both were outstanding. My waiter suggested the "banana pudding" for dessert because it would be life altering (his words). It didn't come close to being banana pudding - deconstructed or reimagined. It was a tasteless mound of goo with some chocolate on top and surrounded a quartered banana drizzled in... More

I was impressed with the menu selection. Although I have normally tried not to dine at this restaurant too often because I'm not a seafood fan (but I have had drinks at the extensive, large bar) I had a petit filet mignon there that was delicious. I should not have doubted because this restaurant is part of the Great American... More
