Our 5 year Coastal Grille moratorium came to an end. We had a very bad experience then at the original location and after hearing glowing reviews from several of our "foodie" friends, decided it was time to give Coastal another try in its new location....More

Classic, consistent, upscale cuisine is offered in a well-appointed, unpretentious setting in this top-notch nosherie. The mahogany bar invites easy conversation and casual dining. Located on the affluent Great Neck corridor in Virginia Beach, just three miles from the Oceanfront, Coastal Grill is as famous for what isn't on the menu as for what actually is. Executive Chef-Owner Jerry Bryan with Maureen Cucchiaro at the stove offer an extensive list of "blackboard specials," always with a nice assortment of freshly caught regional seafood. This locals favorite has received critical acclaim since its inception over 20 years ago, culminating in being voted the Number 1 Restaurant by Hampton Roads Magazine. With amazing food, exemplary service, Coastal Grill is a sure bet for business dinners, special occasions, or simply unwinding after a hard day. Come celebrate with us!
