Farm-to-table
What makes us special is what's so hard to put into words! We are a farm to table restaurant located in the heart of Fenwick Island, DE. In addition to Fenwick being an amazing seasonal location for thousands of summer visitors in a year, it also happens to be where my husband Scott & I grew up. Our whole lives were spent on this exact beach, making memories with family and eating the local cuisine. As we grew up, moved away, traveled, had adventures, and made memories...we were unknowingly always gearing up to pack our bags and head back home. (and what better place is there than that?!) One Coastal is a serious love affair between food and restaurant magic, as my husband and I bring a combined 35+ years in the service industry and countless other experiences to the plate. We've got the farm, the table and the super rad vibe that only happens when your staff is your family and they truly believe in what you do. We are humbled to come to work every day, that's for sure!

One Coastal is one of our favorite restaurants. We tend to visit just for a special date night. We chose a 5 PM fine time since they are only open to 60% capacity for the time being post COVID.

We started with the herb roll. It’s was gone before we thought of getting a photo. Trust me - order it!

For dinner I had the crab cakes which came with a fresh in season tomato sauce, creamy cheesy grits and broccoli. My husband chose the pork chop which was topped with a blueberry sauce, creamed sweet potatoes, and summer squash. Both amazing!

Any dinner here must end with a slice of their chocolate cake. It’s on many restaurants menus however this one is special. Tonight it was topped with some blueberry sauce and of course their signature whipped cream.

What we love so much is that the owners are always onsite and make an effort to visit every table. They truly want everyone to have a great meal. Everything prepared with care and all ingredients super fresh.

Can’t wait to visit again!!!

Food was outstanding, small place so make a reservation if you can. The Gimlet was super - and the Shrimp and Grits was one of the best I’ve ever had. A gem of a place. The team working last night was friendly and took great care to make sure everything was safe, clean and welcoming.

I ordered the scallops and the portion size was a bit small as I was still hungry after eating dinner there. As a matter of fact, we ate 2 slices of pizza after because of still being hungry. For the price you charge, you need to increase your portions. Food was very fresh, but not very filling. I was a bit disappointed after eating here previously.

One Coastal went above and beyond for our anniversary celebration. They handled all my special request making it a memorable evening. The service, food and atmosphere make One Coastal one of our top choices in the Delmarva area for dining.

We have had the pleasure of dining at One Coastal several times. This most recent time, we were celebrating a Birthday. They put a card on the table for my boyfriend prior to our arrival, and everything from there on was truly outstanding. They made it truly a wonderful evening. The desserts we had were some of the best we've ever had. Would truly recommend to anyone.

One Coastal is without a doubt a 5 star experience. Ensuring everyone's safety amid the COVID pandemic, they delivered an amazing dining experience. The atmosphere is so welcoming and warm. The service is personal and professional. The food is outstanding both from a presentation perspective, decorated with edible wildflowers from their farm, to the quality and creatively prepared delicious starters, entrees and desserts. Did I also mention the homemade bread? It was amazing too.

The crab cakes were all fresh sweet lump crab and perfectly broiled. Our first experience with cheesy grits which were delicious and well paired with the crabcakes. The salad included fresh strawberries, farro, shredded carrots, and cilantro goat cheese vinaigrette making it light and refreshing. You have to try the basil crush, a favorite and so refreshing!

Absolutely the best restaurant in Delmarva! I live many states away, but when we come in to town – this is the go to place. Is it wrong to say I fantasize about the food 1200 miles away! Always point on and delicious! Fresh as ever and the ambience is like no other. Best team of servers and bartenders and always innovative! Don’t even bother with the rest – just enjoy enjoy enjoy!!! Owners: Carlie and Scott-impeccable restauranteurs! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Loved the service, ambiance and attention. My crab cakes were dry and not that large or memorable for $38. My wife loved her shad roe. We’ll definitely give it another try.

One Coastal consistently offers up a fresh menu with interesting specials, all utilizing local, farm-to-table ingredients. Their crabcake (gluten-free) is excellent as is their shrimp and grits. One Coastal has an original cocktail menu (love the Coastal Crush!) and sumptuous desserts, all made in-house. If you can't get a reservation, belly up to the bar or the communal table.

I have been trying to get a reservation at One Coastal for over a year because I kept reading rave reviews. It did not disappoint, we really enjoyed our experience and the meal. The menu provided plenty to choose from and the chefs did a great job in executing the dishes. The Coastal Crush was tasty and refreshing. For appetizers we shared the bread and the blackened scallops - both were excellent. For dinner we chose the ribeye and the lamb chops - both were wonderful. For dessert we had the key lime pie and the chocolate cake - both were excellent. We were stuffed and happy when we left.
We had a Server-in-training who did quite well with a complex list of specials. I have no doubt she will be a pro in no time. She and her mentor as well as the hostess were wonderful throughout our time there.
They have maximized the layout well but it is a small space, if you want to get a seat at the bar or get a table plan to get there early or start working on making your reservation!

Our waiter was very knowledgeable and very attentive. I had halibut and it was cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. My husband had the crab cake and loved it. We also asked for suggestions for the wine and our waiter actually brought us a couple of samples so we could make a decision. We would highly recommend this restaurant and we are looking forward coming back.

Small but interesting menu. Crostini was excellent. Crab cake was very good as was the monkfish. Nice, light key lime pie. Lovely Sauvignon Blanc.
