This was our 4th visit to the restaurant. It has clearly improved since our 1st visit perhaps a year ago. The last few visits both the food and the service are very much better. The fish is regularly superbly cooked and it is always fresh. We have been disappointed that either they were not carrying oysters or, most recently, they... More

We went before a show at the Fox. The seafood was as fresh as if it just jumped out of the ocean. The menu is a unique blend of southern sides and creative seafood. Chef Chadd truly has a gift!

Holy trout. No, seriously. It was THAT GOOD.<br> It must have been blessed by a priest. I love food and have eaten at some of the best restaurants in and outside the U.S., this was absolutely an incredible food experience. My husband and I dined here for a date night and it was one we will never forget. We opted... More

A group of us eat out every couple of months, with each couple responsible for choosing the restaurant. Never having been to Virginia Highland before, but knowing the type of area, we really looked forward to our visit. We were not disappointed. Casual and comfortable, the place isn't 'posh' but that just adds to its charm. We began with a... More

A colleague of mine suggested this place to me as his son is the chef. It was outstanding. Started with gator tails just to get a taste of something different and southern. I then had octopus followed by sea food risotto. Everything was superb. Put this restaurant on your radar when in Atlanta.

Went to Goin' Coastal with my girlfriends for dinner. We all loved our meals and had no complaints with the food or the service. The restaurant has a great selection of seafood and a variety of ways to cook each fish. If you love seafood you should try this place.

My husband and I went to Goin' Coastal on a Friday night. The restaurant was busy but not packed (there were tables still available). We got the crab and shrimp au gratin and that was delicious! The highlight of the meal. It took us an hour to receive our entrees from the time we placed our order and that was... More

This is an excellent fish and seafood restaurant that offers the best quality of produce in Atlanta; it is situated in Virginia High. Because of the freshness of produce, you might not always get what there is on the menu but there are a lot of choices anyway so you should not be disappointed anyway. The restaurant offers an informal... More
