Description: Coast Restaurant at The Beach Club features two "bests" of the Alabama Gulf Coast: a panoramic waterfront view of the Gulf of Mexico, and a culinary experience crafted from the finest local seafood. Open nightly throughout the summer season, Coast features the talents of Chef John Hamme, who brings his award winning interpretations of Italian, Mediterranean, and Southern cuisine to The Beach Club. Enjoy new interpretations of classics like Shrimp & Grits along with a daily selection of fish fresh from the Gulf. Seafood is front-and-center with top seasonal ingredients including red snapper, grouper, and ahi tuna - all sourced and supplied locally. If you prefer turf to surf, our mouth watering filet mignon and savory pork tenderloin prepared to perfection and paired with fresh seasonal accompaniments are sure to delight. More than just a culinary delight, Coast is also a feast for the eyes. After a full day on the ocean, enjoy the stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico from our veranda. Watch the waves roll by as you sip a glass of wine from our extensive collection or enjoy a cocktail from our selection of premium spirits.

Excellent service, beautiful balcony seating. A great way to end the evening and watch the sunset. The food was delicious and had a wide variety for all likings. Would go back on next visit. Only negative side: the clubhouse pool is directly under the balcony so as we were trying to relax we left earlier than anticipated due to a children's movie being played outside by the pool….it was too loud.

The Coast Restaurant is in the club house at the Beach Club. We visit here the first night of our stay. The inside of the restaurant is very clean and nice; however, we chose to eat outside on the deck....great choice! The view is remarkable which made the meal that much better. I took my wife and three kids. We were all very pleased with the service and the food. My wife, oldest son and I all had fresh fish. Everything was cooked perfectly; however I have had better tasting dishes...which is the reason I am only rating it "very good". The two younger kids ate off the kids menu and seemed to enjoy it. The best things about the experience was the bread (fresh baked with whole garlic), the mashed potatoes (I usually do not rave about mashed potatoes, but these were awesome), the service (friendly and attentive), and of course the view (you just have to see it for yourself).

We have been coming to The Beach Club for years, one of the reasons we bought a place here was because of the outstanding restaurant on site. Unfortunatly over the years the quality of the food has been one long down hill slide. Until last night. The new version of the Beach Club Restaurant is "Coast", and it is top notch. Last night I had salmon and my husband had pasta with various types of shellfish, both were wonderful. Went back tonight, same quality. Only criticism (but it is a biggie) no frozen drinks in the bar. Really????? Beachside resaturant with no frozen drinks....

Good food, service could use some help. They were training the night we were there and they had to come back and verify our order twice after the initial order. Food was great.

Beautiful Venue at Beach Club. Very impressed with Brunch entrees including shrimp/grits, Mediterranean chicken pasta, crab cakes, eggs Benedict and prime rib. Salad bowl of greens and fruit selection average as well as baked goods. Not much choice if dessert is your desire. Glad others had personable servers as I think our server wished he was somewhere else this morning. For a Brunch price of $19.99 I would think coffee should be included. They no longer add 18%.
