“Order the mushrooms!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

First time to Coastal Flats and was impressed with the Chedder Burger with a side of grilledmushrooms and my wife enjoyed the shrimp roll. Our server Julie was very pleasant and I have to thank her for recommending the mushrooms. Will come back!

“good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I ate there twice and liked the food. The price was also very reasonable but coming from a high-price area I'm not sure if locals would share this opinion. The bad part was the surrounding. You feel like being in a big train station waiting area, and the noise level was really high. You can not expect a cozy conversation with your significant other as he/she may misunderstand what you are saying. But if you just want to have a good dinner, I think that is a good place to go.

“Great Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Husband and I went last night for dinner, first visit for me. We started with the Blue Crab and Rock Shrimp fritters that were fantastic! Husband had the grilled shrimp over Meditteranean orzo, and I had a grilled mahi special. Both entrees very good, service was prompt. Overall a lovely evening out, would definitely dine there again!

“Love this restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Coastal Flats is another one of our favorite "Great American Restaurants." Their specialty is fish dishes, but they also have wonderful steaks, pasta dishes, etc. Their bread pudding is the best in the world, and the shrimp cocktail is amazing. We are never disappointed, and they usually take pride in good service too.

“1st Time Very Good Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

First time visit with a party of five for mid-afternoon lunch on a Saturday. Atmosphere, food & service was very good; plan to go back again without a doubt.
