“Nice Bar Break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

We always eat at the bar so we can people watch and not have to wait. The bartenders wil remember your names after the third or fourth visit (we go once a month). Right now the veggie special is brussel sprouts--which are FABULOUS!!! They are not on the menu, so you have to ask if the wait person doesn't give you the specials.

“Always a great experience...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

The food is always good, the service is great and like all the restaurants in the collection... love the fresh bread. Well prepared seafood and a great place at the bar to watch the game on Sundays.

Coastal Flats is great! I have a seafood allergy but they have a seperate kitchen for seafood so my husband can enjoy his favorite food without me getting sick!

“Coastal Flats has changed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I loved this restaurant for years until they took away the baby back ribs and put beef back ribs on the menu instead. I ordered them, hoping for the best , and was very disappointed. They were mediocre. BRING BACK THE BABY BACK RIBS!!!!
