Second time here and did not disappoint. One of our favorite places to eat now. Very fresh food and simply delicious. It is so good, next time we need to make sure we are there earlier before the fresh fish sells out.
Sat next to the open kitchen - there was a strong cooking smell and smoke(?). Hung our coats outside when we got home. Odd
I've been here twice and loved the food both times. If you are about the food it's a great place, though not at all inexpensive. Figure $75-120 for two, depending on if you have one or two drinks each. If you are wanting peace and quiet for a romantic date or soft conversation I don't recommend this place, except during very low demand hours. The noise level is just below a sports bar and it just takes a few inconsiderate loud people trying to beat out the kitchen noise, then you may wish you brought ear plugs. Fortunately on my last trip my wife remembered how noisy it was the first time, so she did bring the ear plugs and had to use them. It was uncomfortably cool also, even though outside wasn't that cold. The décor is good in a rustic sort of way, but also fits the bar atmosphere at times. Overall, great food. It's just too noisy for our taste during the busy times and our most recent visit was so uncomfortable with noise and temperature that we'll wait until warm weather and a lazy weeknight before returning.
Food always excellent. The broth on my seafood gumbo was barely warm.
Our visit was quite enjoyable. Our Server was outstanding in service and assisting with our selections. Our food was excellent in flavor, temperature and presentation. Ambience was quaint and comfortable.
We arrived a little before our reservation and weren't seated until over 20 minutes after the reservation time. Reservation was for 7:30 and by 8:50 we still didn't have our entrees. Everyone had great things to say about this restaurant but unfortunately that wasn't our experience.
The atmosphere was very nice. We could easily talk to each other. I would highly recommend the Blackened Red Fish, done to perfection. Also, the pace of the meal was excellent, not rushed, but our waitress Shannon was there when needed.
Goin Coastal is one of my favorite places to eat in Canton. The food is always excellent, and the service is great.
One of our favorite places to have dinner in Canton. Great service, friendly staff and the food is very good. Had the crab and lobster risotto special which was delicious. Comfortable and relaxed dining experience.
My husband and I went here for a belated Valentine’s Day lunch. My husband ordered the shrimp and grits, and I ordered an oyster/shrimp po boy sandwich and side. My husband’s lunch portion of the shrimp and grits was very small- probably 4 spoonfuls worth. Needless to say, my husband finished it in about a minute and a half. It was almost embarrassing how small it was, especially for $14. We were disappointed and won’t be returning.
We celebrated Valentine’s Day. Everything was wonderful. Lamar was a great server. Food was perfect.
The Servers are almost always on top of things. The food is exceptionally good. Totally worth every penny.
Food was excellent. Waitress and all of the other staff members extremely friendly. Great experience overall.
good experience all around. Will be back.
Excellent food and service. Always consistent.
Great food - always love it and it was the reason for going there for Valentines. The place just gets to loud & noisy, though.
This was about our 7th or 8th dining experience with Goin' Coastal, and we were not disappointed at all. The service was great, and the food was delicious as always. It can be a little noisy at times, but most restaurants are that way these days.
Best seafood restaurant in the Canton and Cumming area. Well worth driving from Cumming. Yesterday was our second time there and we will be going back.
It was a great dinner place for a special occasion. My wife and I enjoyed it.
I had the lobster gnocchi entree. Lobster was either not cooked correctly or just not good lobster. Could not even cut it with a knife. Was too chewy.
It is always a pleasure to eat here. The food is always spot on and the staff is always friendly. It is well worth the drive. Try it and enjoy!!
Dinner was delicious! Comfortable seating. Pleasant atmosphere.
Food was excellent and the service very courteous and knowledgeable. We would definitely go back and recommend to our friends.
Our first time at Goin' Coastal and we really enjoyed it. Crab and Shrimp dip for appetizer was plenty for two and was packed each bite. (watch the first bite! scalded my mouth). My wife had the shrimp and grits and said the sauce on the grits was one of the best she'd had. The shrimp were plentiful throughout the dish. I had the low country boil and the shrimp was generous, the corn amazingly sweet and the sausage and potatoes were done perfectly. We didn't have room for dessert but they all looked delicious!
Amazing food. Great experience overall. We will definitely be back.
Overall it is still a good place to go. Went primarily for the Wed. night oysters. A while back they raised the price by over 100% but promised better quality oysters. For a while they actually were better but this week they were back to micro-oysters. Most of them would have been illegal to harvest in most states. Still is a decent deal for the price.
We always look forward to eating at Goin' Coastal. The food and friendly staff make it a special treat.
Excellent service and great food. Seated within 2 minutes of reservation.
We always love our meals at Goin’ Coastal... always an enjoyable experience.
Excellent fresh fish!
Best seafood in Georgia
It is always a pleasure to eat here. The food is great as well as the service. Everyone is friendly. We love the Monday Lobster special and Wednesday Oyster special. Try it you won't be disappointed.
Excellent!! The shrimp & grits were probably the best I've ever had. My wife had the Mahi and it was excellent as well. Worth the visit!
This is one of our regular go to places and I typically would recommend it. However, this particular trip wasn't our best experience. We booked reservations for 4 and even mentioned on the reservation that it was for an anniversary. As usual, when we get there, the server advises that they are out of Red Snapper. We've been here many, many times and they are ALWAYS out of Red Snapper and it's always listed as a daily special. I just find that curious. But I must admit that the service on this trip was a bit disappointing. First of all, no one mentioned the anniversary celebration and when it came time for desert, they were completely out of ALL their deserts. We will continue to give them a try, but were not at all pleased by this most recent experience.
Always a great experience!! Never disappoints!!
I tried 2x to submit a review and both times the button at the end did not work to submit, after the name. restaurant was unique and fun, noisy, Taylor was excellent server.
Another great night out at our favorite place in town. The specials sounded great, so I had the cherry stone clams and shrimp pasta. It was so good, I didn’t even need to take it home, I ate every bite. The clams were sweet and a nice size, easy to remove from the shell, and the shrimp was cooked perfectly. It’s one of the best things I’ve had at GC. My husband ordered his standard salmon, and asked for a light salt and pepper preparation, which he said was perfect.
Goin Coastal is consistent and the fish served is top notch. You really can’t ask for anything better in Canton, Georgia.
Food and service were both very good.
Overall good food. Good service, but waitress kept saying "awesome, right on" whenever I said or asked for something. Annoying.
Always a pleasure to eat here. The food and staff are first class. We look forward to our weekly dinners here. Try it you won't regret it.
