Farm-to-table
What makes us special is what's so hard to put into words! We are a farm to table restaurant located in the heart of Fenwick Island, DE. In addition to Fenwick being an amazing seasonal location for thousands of summer visitors in a year, it also happens to be where my husband Scott & I grew up. Our whole lives were spent on this exact beach, making memories with family and eating the local cuisine. As we grew up, moved away, traveled, had adventures, and made memories...we were unknowingly always gearing up to pack our bags and head back home. (and what better place is there than that?!) One Coastal is a serious love affair between food and restaurant magic, as my husband and I bring a combined 35+ years in the service industry and countless other experiences to the plate. We've got the farm, the table and the super rad vibe that only happens when your staff is your family and they truly believe in what you do. We are humbled to come to work every day, that's for sure!

We enjoyed one of the best meals out that we have had in a long time. With the current social situation, it was awesome to be able to get out to some great food and still maintain distancing requirements. It was our first time there and I have been wanting to get in to check it out. Well worth the wait. We will return! And sooner than later.

One Coastal is an establishment that we always book ahead of our week in OC, MD. The atmosphere is both cozy and stylish. Love the ambiance. This past visit, the five of us were each presented with a sparkling aperitif in a cute vintage-style glass. Service here is always very cheerful, enthusiastic and helpful. Food is of the highest quality and there are creative craft cocktails served in interesting, eclectic glassware. It is a special place, with much attention to detail! It is also good to try calling last-minute if you can’t get a reservation, as space may have opened up due to diners that may have departed ahead of their full allotted time.

One Coastal provided us with an amazing meal under very hard circumstances, with all that is required because of Covid. Each item we ordered was delcious, our server knew about each item on the menu and he served as a great bar tender too. We already made reservations for two more visits.

My husband and I always order the steak (rib eye this time) and crab cakes and share. Both were outstanding! And mash potatoes ... to die for. Chocolate cake was so-so; bring back last year’s chocolate cake it was so decadent!

They did a good job of separating tables and putting a few outside. No more seating around the bar which is a shame because it was always fun watching make concoctions. We will try to come back before the season is over.

Have been dining here since they opened and it is always consistently excellent food, service and cocktails. Love that there are new items added to the menu based on fresh catch, fresh vegetable options - along with favorites. Service is always good, friendly and adds to the dining experience. Would highly recommend a visit.

I loved the Shrimp and Grits, my husband the gigantic pork chop and my daughter the seared scallops! They are doing a great job with our current situation! I highly recommend the craft cocktails! They are so creative! Been going here for years and we have always had a fantastic experience!! Way to go One Coastal!!

Maybe one of our best restaurant experiences ever. And without a doubt the best in a Covid world.
We were allowed to sit inside after the weather went rainy. Nicely socially distant, we saw cleaning and felt comfortable.
The drink menu was amazing and our server made the drinks himself. We had the coastal crush with fresh basil
We ordered a salad with fresh blueberries, a blackened scallop appetizer with grits served hot and fresh. And shared the zucchini pasta with fresh crab. The herb roll was a perfect balance we dipped away.
A definite five star experience while being beach casual and fun.

It was great food with the exception of cod that was salty and the rice was not very tasteful.
The service was less then expected. The soup order was forgotten. Our desert was served before meal plates and glasses were taken away. The desert plates were not served. We had to ask twice to bring them. They finally made it to our table, but without forks or spoons. We were tired of asking and had to grab them from the vacant table.

Carley has done an excellent job manifesting the vision of the One Coastal farm and family for the past 6 years since she opened. Always a good, fresh, local, reasonably priced meal. 100% of the time outstanding service. Creative dranks. Cute little touches like handwritten notes when you make a resi. I go here every summer and have no intention of stopping anytime soon.

It was our 9 year anniversary and we were visiting from Las Vegas. We looked up the best restaurant in town and found this one 😊 we came straight from the beach so we were a little skeptical of going in due to us being in casual wear. We set our reservation and they handle the covid 19 health protocol just perfect! Clean, not too many people allowed in at one time. Everyone was nice. And last but not least... the food was absolutely AMAZING!!!! And we appreciated the cute anniversary note they left for us! 💖

Anniversary dinner. Hostess and staff very gracious and attentive, visiting table regularly but not intrusive. Personal note card from staff wishing us a nice Anniversary. Food is consistently excellent, always creative. Prompt food delivery reflecting an efficient kitchen staff. Chef is on top of every order, no dish sits waiting for an accompaniment. Food served Hot and remains so for the duration of the meal. Funny that we live 3 miles from Roseda farms and drive 100 miles for the beef. Ambience conducive to conversation, warm, unhurried, very nice. Likely due to 60% capacity limit--take advantage while you can-- soon will be back to 100% with lively bar. Superior service and food. Don't settle for other places who cannot compare.

This place is not as good as it was a year ago. We have eaten here 15+ times. Bad move to change crab cake sauce to tomato based one. Key lime slice for $10 is nutri-system or weight watchers size portion. Other dessert portions are more generous. And you could pick your sides in the past but now many entrees have the sides pre-selected. Carrots aren’t as good as before. The risotto and cheesy grits are still awesome. It used to be one of my two favorite restaurants but not now. However, it is still a fine place for a meal just not as special as it used to be.

One Coastal is one of our favorite restaurants. We tend to visit just for a special date night. We chose a 5 PM fine time since they are only open to 60% capacity for the time being post COVID.

We started with the herb roll. It’s was gone before we thought of getting a photo. Trust me - order it!

For dinner I had the crab cakes which came with a fresh in season tomato sauce, creamy cheesy grits and broccoli. My husband chose the pork chop which was topped with a blueberry sauce, creamed sweet potatoes, and summer squash. Both amazing!

Any dinner here must end with a slice of their chocolate cake. It’s on many restaurants menus however this one is special. Tonight it was topped with some blueberry sauce and of course their signature whipped cream.

What we love so much is that the owners are always onsite and make an effort to visit every table. They truly want everyone to have a great meal. Everything prepared with care and all ingredients super fresh.

Can’t wait to visit again!!!

Food was outstanding, small place so make a reservation if you can. The Gimlet was super - and the Shrimp and Grits was one of the best I’ve ever had. A gem of a place. The team working last night was friendly and took great care to make sure everything was safe, clean and welcoming.
