We watch several football games this season in their bar area. HUGE, drink specials, buffet and don't rush you to leave. You are welcome to stay for entire game.

Stopped by for Sunday brunch but they didn’t open until 11am so we came back later. Tried the Greek Nachos, the chips were really good but not a big fan of the rest of it. Excellent happy hour prices on the bloody Mary’s and Mimosas!...More

This was our first time going to Coastal and we were loved the atmosphere and the food. They had live music and a very beachy vibe. The food was outstanding. A must try place while in Gulf Shores.

We visited CoastAL based on reviews. The Greek nachos were worth the long wait for a wait staff person to acknowledge us. The hostess had no personality and was not welcoming, the person who I believe may have been a manager noticed we had not...More
