My husband and I had dinner here on a busy Saturday night but had to wait only about 15 minutes to be seated. My husband ordered the Seafood Etouffee and I had the skewered Shrimp & Sea Scallops that were broiled. Sweet potato fries (with no seasoning) and coleslaw accompanied my meal. My husband's dish came with garlic bread. We... More

The seafood is good, the staff is friendly and the service is fast. The fried grouper is very good. My daughter has the sandwich and I had the plate. My wife had a salmon salad which she enjoyed. We were too full for desert, but have had the key lime pie on previous visits and it was good.

This used to be a good place to go for seafood but things have gone downhill. There is simply nothing fresh or creative on the menu anymore. There were six in our party and the only one who enjoyed her meal was the person who got the steak and crab legs. In fairness, the steak was cooked properly and she... More

Some of the best seafood I have had. My wife had the fried gulf shrimp which came with the best sweet potato fries and yummy coleslaw. I had the sea bake which I would recommend to anyone - shrimp, scallops, crab meat with pasta in a cream sauce topped with cheese and baked.

When we pulled in and saw the location, we were not sure what to expect - a seafood restaurant in a parking lot of a strip mall? How good could it be? We were pleasantly surprised. The decor is Carolina beach. It is clean. Service was pleasant. Food came quickly. Grouper fingers and shrimp were well prepared - Crispy, not... More

Have taken the family here several times, the fried catfish is excellent, I have gotten it every time. Everyone always enjoys eating here, the portions are good, the prices are a little on the higher side, but quality and service are excellent. My only complaint is they play modern country music on the speaker system. But that is really it.... More

We have tried this place many times and have yet to have a complete good meal. By complete good meal I mean the order is correct, the food is cooked and flavored correctly and we have good service. We seem to only get 1 of those 3 things every time and it varies. Try it for yourself but there are... More

This place is a laid back, kid friendly restaurant. The seafood is a 10/10 and the staff is super tentative to each patron. My 3 yr old son loved the waitress (he likes 20 yr old girls lol).

Coastal Breeze is a great medium prized casual restaurant with really good food. I can go solo sometimes and just sit at the bar and enjoy a cocktail and a snack or take the whole family, including small grandchildren. We have never been disappointed. I also love the location - away from the hub bub of the mall area nearby.... More

Overall, a nice place. The service is prompt and polite. The food options can pretty much satisfy everyone and there are even options for non-seafood lovers. Prices are attractice. Try the Scampi and mussels as a start! And order extra bread!

Thank Spiros L
