Coast Bar + Bistro Reviews List

Coast Bar + Bistro

Coast Bar + Bistro serves elevated versions of classic comfort foods. The bistro offers a range of appetizers, sandwiches, salads, our signature pizzas and delicious entrees. We are open every day at 4pm.

Menus at Coast Bar + Bistro change throughout the year as we feature high quality regional offerings from land and sea. The farmers and fishermen of Maine produce exceptional cheeses, organic meats, local produce and of course, some of the world's best seafood. Our culinary team takes advantage of these offerings in the creation of every dish. Alongside an inventive yet familiar menu, our guests enjoy some of the region's finest micro-brewed beers, hand picked wines, and Brunswick's largest selection of cocktails.

We will slowly release new specials and menus so be sure to like our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/thedanielhotel) and visit our website (www.thedanielhotel.com/restaurant/coast-bar-and-bistro).

"Stumbled upon this gem on a trip up from Boston. Received some of the best hands-on service from Darian! She was amazing and so hospitable! Can't wait to visit again!"

"We have eaten at Coast before and been very pleased with the food and service. This time the food was a disappointment. Teriyaki pork ribs were overdone and chewy and the 'spicy soy glaze' was very sour---none of the sweet counterpart one expects from teriyaki. Salmon skewers were good, but the 'warm fingerling potato salad' consisted of undercooked rounds of potato and very little dressing. The kale salad was fine. Creme brulee was runny. The service was friendly but the server was busy, and had to be prompted."

"First time, didn't know what to expect..went on a whim, Everything was above average expect for the WAIT, we waited 40 minutes after we ordered before our food finally arrived and the place was half full, the food was great...the we waited AGAIN to get our Bill and I had to get the attention of a staffer walking by so I could pay the Bill. I'll give them one more chance, I hope I caught them on a bad nite."

"The restaurant is small, separated from the bar area by a large see through fireplace. We were there on a very cold night so the atmosphere was just what we needed, warm and cozy. The service was very good, very friendly. This is a nice place to have dinner in a Brunswick."
