Very good overall. But the fried shrimp was a little over cooked. Sitting at the bar near the kitchen was a great choice. All worked together as a well oiled machine.

We have dined at Goin' Coastal several times and have not been disappointed. We arrived just prior to our reservation time and we seated after a very brief wait. Our waiter Edward did a fine job and refills on water and drinks were timely. My wife enjoyed the Trout toast appetizer which was delicious but had just a few too many capers. I had the Lobster bisque which was also delicious but just a little too salty. For the entree my wife had the Lobster mac and cheese and the vegetable of the day. Her entree was outstanding and enough for two meals so she enjoyed it a 2nd time as well. I had the
Fried shrimp with Yukon gold potatoes. The shrimp were large lightly breaded and crispy and I enjoyed all 10 of them at the restaurant. The Yukon gold potatoes were served as 1/4" thick medallions fried with a touch of rosemary. The flavor was good but the thickness made them a bit dry inside. A little bit thinner and they would have been perfect. I still rate the plate as excellent overall. We will be back again and would recommend Goin' Coastal to anyone looking for a fine seafood dining experience.

Went for lunch, not crowded. My husband had trout, I had Caesar salad with shrimp. Also had side of hush puppies. Trout meal was good, hush puppies light and delicious. My Caesar was disappointing for $12. Large bowl of iceberg lettuce, lots of the stems included, 6 regular size shrimp. Was expecting some nice greens and perhaps a few more shrimp. Felt like I paid for a head of lettuce, mostly the hard parts. Could barely taste the dressing. Overall salad was bland and a disappointment.

Myself and some friends went there the other night. I had been told it was "very good" "Very Good" was an understatement. It was wonderful. I had the lobster and it was perfect. The hush-puppies were wonderful along with the roasted potatoes. The salad was a very small portion for three people and there was no bread served with it but that did not diminish my review in the least! I have a home in Florida and my friends have one at Hilton Head and we all agreed that this place was just as good if not better than any we had experienced at either of those places.

Arrived 18 minutes early for our reservation and special request to discover our table had been given to another couple. Then proceeded to wait 40 minutes and then many of the fish offerings were sold out.

I went there about 4 years ago and was not impressed at all. Figured I would give it a redemption shot. Food was great, but service was just kind of ok. Took what seemed like FOREVER to get the wine tasting prior to ordering the bottle. Waitress was a little slow, but I think that is just because she was very nice and chatty.
I will plan to come back in the future.

William(?) our server at lunch was excellent. Friendly comfortable professional.
Raw oysters, French fries were top notch as was fried shrimp & hush puppies.
Mussels got too table cool. The shrimp added to Caesar salad were below acceptable. Very small and seemed they were straight out of a freezer bag and nuked, not grilled as menu described. The blackened chicken breast I added was dry & not flavorful.
My companion paid our tab so I’m not sure if the shrimp were taken off the tab.
I would return when in canton but would order with specific info about the food and ask more questions.
