I like so much about this restaurant...the concept, the location, the at-mo...I tried it for the third disappointing time. The CORN bread, the cornbread pudding, the hushpuppies and the fried fish are just flat out wrong, wrong, wrong!!! In the South, cornbread should taste like corn, not like tasteless flour and sugar. We feasted well but were unsatisfied. Stomach aches... More

My date reserved a table last Sat morning and we were both looking forward to some great seafood since he is from Boston and I am from Charleston, SC. What we got were 2 plates of disappointment! We first decided to try the hot cheese & crab dip which was so hot that it burned the roof of my mouth... More

Goin' Coastal is casual, creative and comfortable, the right place for fresh, local caught and imaginatively prepared seafood. Entrees change frequently and a first visit prompted the hope that some of the recipes are recycled and returned. An olive oil poached salmon was superb, as was the yellowtail done 'skinny' without added condiments and sauces. Diners can create their own... More

A bunch of the seafood places around town specialize in fried anything. I am not a fried food eater so this place appeals to me much more than other. Its sustainable-ness is nice too. I would have normally gotten the lobster macaroni but they didn't have it. I have had it in the past and its was excellent. I did... More

My wife and I had an excellent dinner here! Ate at one of the table on the sidewalk, and Paige took very good care of us. From the blue crab dip appetizer to the Coastal tilefish and blackened wolffish everything was delicious. We will definitely return.

Small family owned restaurant that made us feel at home. Great service and great food. The service was so great that when they ran out of bloody mary mix they ran to the store to get more.

Fried green tomatoes with lobster was really good. I'm sure that's not what it's called on the menu.

I visit the Canton location and absolutely love it! If you really know seafood, you know how hard it is to find good fried seafood. They have some of the best fried scallops I've ever had! They use only sustainable sources so they're good for the planet, too. Because everything comes in fresh, the menu changes almost daily (aside from... More

I am not sure how I have gone this long without knowing about this restaurant's existence! FRESH seafood, with the choices constantly changing. They have a chalk board list on the walls of what they have available. There are plenty of options as far as fish, with oysters, lobster and other creatures available as well :-) One person in our...
