Nice Anniversary Dinner

We ate here last weekend for our 12th anniversary. We had reservations somewhere else and at the last minute changed our minds after seeing the pics on Yelp. Parking is very hard to find in this neighborhood. The place was crowded, that is not saying a lot because it is a small restaurant. The... read more

Small restaurant delivers intimate feeling with casual atmosphere. Wait staff knows menu and we were glad we followed their recommendations. Had delicious oyster appetizer and monk fish main course.

We ate here on Thursday, 6/4 at about 8:30. I ordered the Monkfish, and they served me a bad piece of fish. I smelled it as soon as it hit the table. I didn't say anything. I didn't want to appear like I was misinformed on how this fish is supposed to be prepared. It's not like I ordered it... More

we ate here after reading all the reviews on Yelp and were not disappointed. we are from Chicago and as tourists are always hesitant to try someplace recommended by other tourists so we thought we'd trust yelp. the seafood was fresh and the drinks were very good. service was quick but not rushed and host was accommodating as we needed...

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
