"You cannot beat they week day specials, $20.00 Whole Lobster and a side.
All the chefs are great...Fried Pickles and the Cornbread are out of this world.
They have a mid week Oyster special also.
Everyone I have sent here returns again and again.
If you are going to do the specials, be sure to make reservations , and make sure they know you want the special.
They can run out of the Lobsters.

"Professional. That's what I'd say about the bar staff here. We had NO intention of eating at the bar. However, we were treated so well, and so knowledgeably, by the bar staff, that we decided to eat there. So glad we did. "Peppers to hot? Here's a glass of milk." "Like your gin old fashioned? Let me tell you about that funky little distillery in Santa Fe that made that gin." "Unsure what to order? Let me act like I have nowhere else to be and really help you understand our menu and what it offers...even though I have like ten other places I need to be...but fear not, I'll get there and make THOSE people just as happy." These folks are pros. Oh..and the food is great, too...
I'm actually thinking about deleting this review so it won't be so crowded next time we go..."

"the food was mediocre at best in my opinion...this was my second visit and the food this night was not hot....and there was an odd flavor to my lobster that was very disappointing. Left not really satisfied like I am used to. didn't feel like a real seafood meal......I had the lobster roll and Caesar salad...drink was good ...grey goose and tonic..."

"Our experience at Goin Coastal was excellent. We were greeted with great service and a comfortable setting. We ordered and enjoyed the house cocktail with muddled basil and dined on the grouper tacos and the seafood platter. Everything was delicious. We look forward to returning soon."

"The choices of fish are really nice. We liked the idea of four different ways of preparation.
For the freshest and tastiest fish, we recommend choosing something 'local' from SC, NC or the Gulf.

"I met some friends here for Sunday brunch. I had the shrimp and grits which was really good. We arrived around 12:30 PM. The restaurant was not crowded and the server came to our table quickly. The food did take a long time to come out even though there weren't that many people inside. The mimosas are are great value, they were $1 each (limit 3). I will definitely eat here again. There isn't much parking so you may have to park in the neighborhood and walk a few blocks."

"Goin Coastal is a WONDERFUL little place.
FRESHNESS - the seafood is super super fresh! No fishy taste or texture.
SELECTION - they always have a great variety of seafood offerings.
FLAVOR - so many good flavors (house options: Coastal, Miso, Skinny, Blackened) or flavors in the dishes are so good!
COST - GREAT prices for such good food!
PORTIONS - a-plenty!
AMBIANCE - Charming Virginia Highlands location is a small and it can get noisy. It has a very nice neighborhood, friendly feel. You want to check out what your table neighbors are eating!!!
ADULT BEVERAGES - GREAT selection of wine, liquors, beers and specialty cocktails.
This is one of my new favorite restaurants in the entire Atlanta area. Everything about it is wonderful!!! I lived in Florida's Gulf Coast for 10 years so I'm a bit of a picky seafood diner....they do it right here!!!"

"This restaurant is my favorite in this neighborhood. It's small and intimate, but even so, I never get a side-eye from staff or patrons when I bring my one year old to dine with us. They are very accommodating. I always order the Sheepshead fish special if they have it... it has a really great texture (kind of like skate fish) and always moist and delicious. My friends usually order a different fish, and I never like theirs quite as much. The Scallop Risotto is incredible, too. And don't miss out on the Shrimp and Crab Au Gratin appetizer. I love this place, and so happy it's in my neighborhood!"

"Always bring guests here because it is so good! Loved the amberjack prepared "skinny" with "coastal" seasoning. Fish is always amazing."

"We live in the neighborhood and enjoy having this restaurant as an option. We have always had a good experience here, but on this occasion the food was beyond good and moved up to the outstanding level. We are excited to go back - hopefully soon!"

"Basic food, well prepared and a good value. Nothing is above average though. Out of oysters the night we were there. Odd for a seafood rest. Our reservation was not recognized on time. We waited quite a while but they were gracious enough to comp dessert."
