Our whole evening was awesome from the gator tail, calamari appetizers, to the swordfish and scallop risotto was amazing. Our dessert of chocolate pie and coffee also was amazing. Our server Kristlyn was very knowledgeable of the food, cooking processes and had a great smile. It is always a great experience over and over!

We met friends for dinner - arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately. Had fried calamari and crab au gratin for apps - both were excellent!

Two of us had fried shrimp and two had red fish as entree. All extremely fresh, seasoned and cooked perfectly! Staff was attentive but not pushy, and were willing to answer all our queStions. The waitress especially was attentive and informative about supply of the daily fish selection. The selection of different fish is comprehensive. Can’t wait to go again.

Celebrating my husband’s birthday a day late, due to weather conditions. I have been the GOIN Coastal so many times since it opened. However I don’t always use opentable because I’m not always the host of the group.

We have been going to Goin' Coastal since they opened years ago. This week I had an amazing meal, not only at this restaurant, but one of the BEST MEALS EVER. They had a halibut special, that was a simple seared halibut over a golden beet puree, with roasted sun chokes and hen of the wild mushrooms. Our server highly recommended it and she was spot on. We sent our kudos back to the chef. I have never had a bad meal or experience here, but this time it was over the top! And the service was spectacular as well - recommended a great wine pairing that was the perfect balance to the meal. GREAT JOB! See you again soon!

They were out of almost everything on the menu by the time we arrived for our 9pm reservation. Our only choice for fish was salmon which I could have done myself from any grocery store. I will most likely go back since the food has always been good but will make sure it’s an early reservation as late reservations have limited selection of food which I wasn’t at all happy about.

We had a great experience at Goin Coastal. The food and service were wonderful! We will definitely be returning to enjoy the calming atmosphere and amazing food. The only thing that would make it a little better would be a little more salad and bread, and also not to be cramped at the high top table that has a large picture that hangs over the already small table. Just being honest, but we will surely try it again!

Food quality was very good. Our server was awesome (Taylor) - she's a keeper. Only downside comment is that the couple sitting next to us had a loud male which was distracting.

We came in to quietly celebrate my birthday. As always, the food was fresh, correctly served and hot! Our server was Amber and she had an excellent "table presence." We never had to track her down to fill a water glass nor did she interrupt any conversation when she arrived. Great food and AWESOME service!

My fiancé and I went for our anniversary and the staff could not have been nicer. They gave us a sweet card signed by the whole staff and sat us by the window. Very accommodating and have never had a bad experience. The lobster Mac is out of this world.

Our waiter, Matt, recommended the smoked trout toast appetizer, and it was delicious! All four of us loved our meal choices, especially the Coastal Mahi. Service was prompt and the noise level was low. A very enjoyable evening with good friends!
