The food at Goin' Coastal is always perfect. I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant -- nothing less than the very best on each visit! We drive about an hour to dine there and it's worth it! The service is always just right. The servers are knowledgeable about the items on the menu and there is no doubt you will get just what you ask for, prepared the way you like it!

Our second trip since reopening. We had a great time and felt very safe. The food was fantastic as always and i wish i could remember our servers name. She kept checking on us(water glasses never empty) but didn’t hover. She was so great! One of the first places we think of dining in Canton. Thanks

Our Wedding Anniversary dinner was excellent tonight! Started with the Calamari from Rhode Island, shared mixed green salad, Parmesan crusted Mahi, with shared hush puppies and shared Yukon gold potatoes.

We did the home delivery service to cook items at home a couple of times, but we are so happy you are open again!

We were so excited to be back that we forgot to take pics of our food! We ordered a piece of pecan pie to bring home for dessert later.

Excellent food. I had scallops and the hubs salmon. Son had fried shrimp (picky eater). Calamari appetizer and chocolate cake, all delicious. Waitress attentive and surroundings, although not the same pre Covid, pretty mellow. We have been there before and will go again. Goin’ Coastal is a great seafood restaurant, and locally owned with farm to table produce.

Goin' Coastal is our "go to" for seafood in the area. Saturday was no exception. There have been some changes (everyone wears a mask, tables are fewer and further apart) which I suspect affected the service timing just a touch, but other than that, it was the same great experience that we always have. I took my dad for an early Father's Day dinner. He had the shrimp and crab au gratin starter and the Low Country Boil dinner and enjoyed them both. I ordered two specials - the seared scallops and grilled maitake mushrooms over carrot puree and the fresh Redfish (Coastal style) with coleslaw. They were delicious. I did miss the little corn breads and forgot to ask if they are no longer on the menu - but that's an added bonus!

This was my first time eating in the back of this restaurant. It was pretty loud and very busy since the restrooms are back there. It seems there were only so many specials. When we sat down two items were out, so we didn’t have many choices. It took a while to get our drinks from the bar. Our waitress forgot to put in some of our order. The prices here aren’t cheap, so I do expect excellent service! The menu here has become boring. The favorites are no longer on the menu. I think we will put this restaurant on the back burner for awhile.
