Outstanding fish and a wonderful dining experience

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... read 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

We dined here on a Thursday evening. I had looked for dining options in the area online and the menu looked appetizing and on Thursday they have a half price special on their weekly menu for a period of time. We went early as we hadn't had lunch and had a very delicious meal. The service was excellent. I would... More

Went here for dinner last night. Lobster had just been there 3 hours, and I think it usually arrives on Mondays. My wife got the lobster which was on spot and I had the lobster mac. Lobster mac is definitely one of the better meals I've had in all of my time at ATL. Servied with cornbread and they have... More

We both ordered the Scottish Salmon but mine came out very under cooked. So I sent it back to have it cooked some more and in just a few minutes, the chef came out with an entirely new meal and profusely apologized. When the check came, my food was not included and they insisted on giving me the dinner for... More

Had the crabcakes and Mugshot beer and it was really good! The cornbread was to die for, nice setting - good prices. I will definitely come back!

I had a friend in town and was looking for somewhere good to go. This place had decent reviews so we booked for a group of 6. We called as we were running a smidge late and they said they were too. We were trying to shift the reservation back a half hour. The hostess NEVER came back on the... More
