Fabulous dining experience. Drinks were great. Appetizers - we had, raw oysters, popcorn shrimp, and fried gnocchi. Entrees: scallops with polenta and branzino - all delicious. Our server was excellent - she was attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend 👍🏻👍🏻

The place is very beautiful with spectacular views of the Narraganset Bay.
Our server was prompt and friendly.
We ordered the Octopus appetizer for our lunch. For the price it was sufficient food for lunch.
The octopus wascooked very well and was very tender.For the garnish there were pea shoots which were very decorative. There was plenty of Chorizo which also well prepared.
Only dis appointment was that for calling it octopus dish it had very little octopus .
It could have been called as a grilled chorizo dish.
We have been there in the past and have always enjoyed the food and the ambience.
We will return again when we are in the area and would recommend to the friends and family.

We had not been to this restaurant in quite a while and we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. We got a table by the window and watched the waves roll in over the rocks by the sea wall. We will definitely be going back as often as we can.

I don’t believe there is a better view of the ocean than The Coast Guard House in Narragansett R.I. The food is incredible. Servers are knowledgeable and fun. Try some Schramsberg Napa sparkling.

The CGH never disappoints. The seasonal cocktails are tasty. The calamari and stuffies appetizers are great. Entrees delicious and the crème brûlée was large enough for several people to share.

Service was amazing as well as the ambiance. However, the food was really subpar. The steak was chewy with no fat. The burger was overcooked and bland. Raw bar was on point. But considering the total bill…not worth it.

Took my wife there last night for her 50th birthday with our kids. We rented an igloo and it was a great experience across the board - food, service, and the ambiance. Daniel our waiter was incredibly attentive and helpful. Would highly recommend for a special night out.

This restaurant is a favorite; great view, food is excellent, staff is attentive and pleasant. But it's pricey...I think it's a bit much. Especially dessert; 10-12 bucks for a piece of cake? We had lunch; 2 salads (1 with a protein), 2 drinks, 1 dessert. Bill was $72 including 20% tip. I recommend it, but be ready to lay some money down.

We waited over 15 min after being seated & only after one of us went to front desk to ask if server was assigned to our table!!?!
Table assignments r not clear to servers as our server apologetically responded to us; however, our server couldn't have been more pleasant or attentive once she was advised of our table !
Also, the owner was making his way to all the tables to say Hello, etc & stopped at ones next to us & across fr us & not Once looked in our direction or stopped???? How rude !
