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!

Amazing food! Had the crostini with goat cheese and jam for starter, which was amazing. Pork chop and crab cake were also incredible. Scallops in brown butter sauce were good but not very special IMHO. Carrots, zucchini and risotto were all awesome. Coconut rice is nothing to write home about. Cocktails were delicious. Would have liked some wine with dinner but our server disappeared for a long stretch and there was no opportunity. Overall we loved it and definitely plan to return.

Have been there 4 or 5 times previously. While the food is always good, the menu is limited and rarely changes or expands. That being said, I ordered their life changing pork chops at 715 pm and was told they were out. Finally, while it has been more than a year since my last visit, I think the entree prices have increased by 25 percent or more. Certainly their menu prices today bear no relation to the menu price on the Open table website. Open table should revise the menu .Thus I am taking it off my list of must go restaurants or recommendations.

We had 2 couples celebrating a 50th birthday and we were greeted with a card and complementary bubbles - thoughtful touch! We enjoyed our meals very much, but we especially liked the herb bread app. They should sell the bread to go - amazing. Finished our meals with Irish Coffees and a Chocolate Martini - great finish for the evening. Definitely would return.

This was our first time dining at One Coastal. The restaurant is quaint and inviting. The menu is small but interesting. Everything we ordered was delicious from appetizer to dessert. Our waitress was new and not very experienced, But she was polite and lovely even if she didn’t have the answers she apologized and went and checked to get answers. (Ie what kind of beer was available.) Highly recommend and will definitely return. Food was fresh and well prepared. Manager also Checked on us a couple of times very pleasant.

And wasn’t a very good experience. The waitress was two on top of us. The noise was very high. My guest did not like her salad at all and the waitress should’ve offered to take it off the check. And overall the prices are very high for what the actual restaurant and ambience is.

The best restaurant by far in Fenwick and I’m not sure anything in Ocean City can even come close. Food was incredible, drinks fantastic and the hostess does her job excellently! We already have booked dinners for the rest of the summer!

As always the staff and the food were top notch. My husband ordered the filet mignon which he absolutely loved. He said it was really buttery. The crabcakes are all crab, no cake 😀. Overall an awesome dining experience. Hope to be back soon.

We really like this place, but it’s so small, that it is very difficult to get a reservation.
This time, we had seats at the bar. I had the cauliflower and asparagus soup as an appetizer. It was just ok. I felt it was rather thin.
I also ordered the appetizer shrimp and grits as my main course. It was perfect! Key lime pie for dessert was also delicious.

My husbands steak was very good, but the roasted heirloom carrots were very unappealing looking. They looked like they had been under someone’s refrigerator for a year. Sometimes, regular veggies are the better choice. Gus carrot cake, however, was delicious!

The pleasant greeting we received when we arrived made us feel special, like they had been waiting for us to arrive. The service was great and everyone who worked there stopped by the table to check on us. Very attentive. I had such high expectations that I’m afraid, I’m afraid the food didn’t wow me. Worth a second try.

My companion commented that he never had a steak that literally melted in his mouth. I tried a piece and it was amazing. The lamb shank was equally delicious! Sat at the bar and enjoyed a Coastal crush as well.

The food is always superb here! But the ventilation system is very poor. My friend was coughing quite a bit and my eyes were irritated almost immediately. There must be a way to do better.
