“Local restaurant chain without chain dull food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Good food, no reservations, near the movie, ask for a quiet table...good luck...it can get really busy here after 5 on the weekends so allow for wait time...nice town center to walk around while you wait.

“Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Me and my wife ate at Coastal Flatts as it looked interesting from the outside. We were very pleased with quality of food and the service which was fantastic. They provided me a drink before I was even finished my first one, it was the rasberry lemonade and it was so great. Our server was very pleasant and everyone in there made sure to take great care of us.

“Talk about crab cakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

The place is located in a very trendy open mall, we had to seat at the bar as there were lots of people waiting for a table, but the bar is great and the food is fantastic.
I wanted Maryland style crabs, but what I got was even better. Chunks of crab meat held by a little bit of batter, great cole slaw and crispy fries. A very good selection of wines by the glass and very efficient and friendly service.
Sorry, no opinion about their desserts, I was stuffed!

“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.
