We recently ate at Goin' Coastal with friends and family. All of the appetizers were delicious, and everyone enjoyed their main course. After dinner, we enjoyed a dessert platter, featuring a variety of delicious cakes and pies. The atmosphere was good, but not great. We were in a back room where it was somewhat difficult to hear each other talk.... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who read about it in the Lonely Planet book. At first I was hesitant about dining at a place mentioned in a tourist book but couldn't have been more pleased! The restaurant is located in a charming area and the food was fantastic! Loved the tuna appetizer!

Nice but small place that we enjoyed for Mother's Day. I wish they had had the dinner menu available, but only the brunch was offered. They did allow us to get a dozen raw oysters that weren't on the brunch menu and that was the highlight of the meal. Fresh and delicious. They went great with the dollar mimosas. The... More

We had a fabulous meal at Going Coastal in April 2015. We had happened upon the restaurant on a previous visit to the area. Going Coastal's fresh sheet was so inviting we determined to eat their upon our next visit to the area, and we are thankful we did so. The restaurant's premise is simple: sustainable, fresh ingredients served nearly... More

I looked for a great seafood restaurant and the food was very fresh and excellent. The service was good. It was my first time and it met my expectations.

We returned to Goin' Coastal for a second time after a great meal on our first visit and this visit was even better. The fish was incredibly fresh, very well prepared and the service was excellent. We are from out of town but we will make it a point to come back someday soon.

We were visiting from out of town and got recs from Trip Advisor. There were four of us; two of the dinners (grilled fish and baked fish) came out seriously undercooked. Our waitress did not question it and a few minutes later someone (manager? chef?) appeared and apologized saying our dishes had alerted him to a glitch in his oven.... More
