Never stopped at the new restaurant, but did not hear good things about it. Maybe that is why they didn't last even a full year. Too bad. At one time this use to be a great place to eat

This place is closed. Austins then took it over and it is not the Coastal Grille which already has a Tripadvisor page. SEAFOOD SHANTY IS LONG GONE, CLOSED. PLEASE DELETE THIS. COASTEL GRILL Has nothing to do with Seafood Shanty. They are actually good.
