Thank you for supporting the sustainable seafood movement by GOIN COASTAL. Now, stop surfing the web and come eat some great seafood!
Go there a lot - always good - specials are great - had the mussels..... almost ordered a second helping.
Can't speak to dessert - always too full to even consider..... I guess that's a good thing.
The meal options and specials are always outstanding. The servers are well trained and very attentive to your needs.
This is our 3rd time coming to this restaurant and it never disappoints! We celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary tonight and Jessica, as always was amazing. The man who greeted us (I wish I caught his name) was so sweet and welcoming. The food is beyond words.... You’ll never leave hungry. Thank you for making our anniversary so special each year ❤️
Food is always good and we always have great service!
The entrees were great. The sides, muffins and hush puppies were too done. I think the grease needs to be changed. The cocktails were spot on. I noticed people at the bar drinking red wine in a white wine glass with a very small pour. I’m a foodie, so I notice things that most people do not. I expect a little more.
We had a great time here! Great food and excellent service. It’s a bit pricey but worth it! Great for a date night or a fun dinner with friends.
We absolutely love it here. From the atmosphere to the service and the Devine food, we’ve never had a bad experience. Our local favorite!
The Fried Shrimp and fries are off the chain!!!
Our server, Taylor is a joy!
It is Always a pleasure to dine at this gem!
We've never been disappointed and so many fresh fish options to choose from.
We Will be back soon!
Excellent excellent excellent on everything! Food so delicious. Service as always is great. Definitely going back soon!
Always great seafood selections, however this visit the usual engaging waitress inaction lacked the element of "fun"...
Perhaps it was an off day for the waitress tending to our group of six...
Goin' Coastal is always one of top choices for excellence...
Absolutely fantastic! We were seated right away and I noticed other customers who had reservations were also. How nice not to have to wait at the bar.
Jen was our server and she was right there the entire time knowing what we needed, making us comfortable and happy.
The food was fantastic from the starters to the entree. And lots of food. Everything we had was delicious. And the most amazing hush puppies I’ve ever had.
Thank you Goin Coastal for a truly great dining experience. Start to finish. We had to drive 45 min but plan on doing it again and bringing friends😊
One of our favorites for special occasions, my birthday this evening. Kristen was very attentive and helpful. Husband enjoyed calamari appetizer. Salad was fresh with great dressing that’s the perfect blend of ingredients, light and delicious. He had Coastal Bowl and I had Coastal amberjack with cheese grits. Amazing! Complimentary dessert with candle and no singing (thank you), I chose gooey butter cake. Oh my gracious-what a treat!
We came to Goin' Coastal for our daughter's birthday. We all agreed this was one of the best meals we have had in a very long time. Wonderful service and excellent food!!
Fantastic, as always
We love our local seafood restaurant in Canton! Bring friends there all the time and recommend it constantly .
Always a great time at GoCo! Josh and Zach take care of their patrons well
Very fresh ingredients that prepared very well - great staff- great experience
We live in Cumming and have visited pretty much every restaurant in the area. We wanted to venture out to see what we've been missing in other areas. Did a Google search for seafood restaurants within an hour drive and found Goin Coastal. It was about 40 minutes from where we live but well worth the drive.
From the moment we entered the restaurant we loved the vibe. The interior was open and warm. We had a reservation and were seated immediately by a very nice hostess. Our servers (one was in training) were at the table very quickly and took our drink order. The drinks were quick to be served and our server asked if we had any questions about the menu. We had viewed it online before we arrived so we didn't have any questions and knew what we wanted.
My girlfriend is gluten free and loved how they identified all the options on the menu. She decided to go with the Shrimp and Crab Louie salad as an entree. I ordered the Low Country Shrimp Platter. We told our server we were going to split these and were pleasantly surprised they were delivered that way. Kudos for the great service. I also ordered the lobster bisque, which isn't GF so I enjoyed that all by myself. It was delicious. Lots of lobster chunks.
Both of our entrees were presented beautifully and tasted terrific. The only downside was in splitting the Louie salad there wasn't a lot of crab but would have been if one person was eating it. No biggie. We appreciate the fact this restaurant focuses on serving sustainable seafood. Overall this was a really good experience and we'll definitely be back.
This restaurant has the best service and a smaller more sustainable seafood selection.
Everything was GREAT!
Shrimp is the BEST!
French Fries are crispy and seasoned to PERFECTION!
Goin' Coastal is my #1 Draft Choice!!!
We eat here pretty regularly. It is the best restaurant Downtown Canton. The fish is always excellent and service is great. :)
Excellent food and service. Love the Sea Bass, Blackened! Yummy!
Our young server needed help. I had to remind her several times of requests and she never did bring us our requested water.
The Birthday card was really appreciated!
The food was phenomenal. We were very satisfied!! We will definitely go back! The she crab and ChLilian sea bass were a must! Everything was cooked to perfection. I got my fish piping hot and cooked to perfection.
I get serious cravings for their Low Country boil and it never disappoints! Service is always good. On very busy nights (when there’s a special), it can get loud enough to stifle conversation - but the food is worth it.
We were offered a high top table. When we told them that it was unacceptable due to my wife having major back surgery in the past and was very uncomfortable for her their response was even worse. They told us that the other tables were for larger parties only and there was nothing they could do. Our response was walking out. I have never heard of such a policy. We have eaten there before with friends and enjoyed the food and the service we received at the other visit. I would not recommend this place to anyone due to the service we received at our last visit.
I grew up in Florida and seafood was weekly meal in my house. It was my best seafood experience since I have moved to Ga. I have and will continue to recommend it to anyone who will listens.
Good! Food was a cold unfortunately, but I think the plates came out of the fridge? Food was excellent regardless.
We have been three times now and have left extremely satisfied every time! The food is fresh and delicious! You must try the lobster mac and cheese!! Service is great and even when the restaurant is full, we get our food quickly. They do run out of some fish options since it’s delivered daily, so go early. :)
Had the lobster and New York strip for dinner. Meat was excellent taste and full of flavor. The lobster was steamed with drawn butter and it’s taste was mouth watering and so good. Courtney was our server giving us wonderful service. Make your reservations now and fall in love with seafood with Goin Coastal!!!
Taylor was excellent and so sweet! The food was amazing as always and lemon drops were great!
Food is spot on ande the staff is friendly and professional. It is well worth the drive. You won't be disappointed. Enjoy!
Anniversary - appreciate the signed card
Food was not as good as last visit.
Always great food and service. Well worth the drive from Milton.
My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience. The food was delicious (red snapper and tuna) and our server (Aubrey, I believe) was knowledgeable and communicative and professional and kind. We have already told multiple people about Goin’ Coastal and will continue screaming it from rooftops. We love what you stand for!
Only complaint was that we were seated by the restrooms.
Great food, very comfortable environment. Waitress was very upbeat and very efficient
Has taken the # 1 spot of my favorite restaurant
Our go to place when we have guest from out of town. Quality can always be depended on
