New Restaurant: Coast Seafood & Raw Bar

Stacy and I recently went out to celebrate some good news at her job and decided to go to Coast Seafood & Raw Bar in Buckhead. Stacy had been wanting to go here and this was the perfect opportunity to try it out. Coast is a Here to Serve Restaurant, which is a group of chains in Atlanta from Shout, Twist, Prime, Goldfish and Noche. It is in a great spot at the corner of East Andrews and Paces Ferry, in the old home of Seeger's. The deck outside grabs your attention and will be a great spot to hangout in the summer. The inside was two stories with a bar directly to your right when you come in. On the night we went they also had a guy playing acoustic guitar at the bar, so another reason to come back again. Click on the link above and go to their gallery for more photos of the restaurant.

They had a pretty big menu with everything from fresh fish to scallops, shrimp and lobster. We started with an order of crab/corn hush puppies and calamari. The hush puppies came out in two minutes and were really good and a different twist to normal hush puppies. The calamari took forever, but was worth the wait as we were both starving. For entrees, Stacy ordered Charleston Shrimp & Grits and I had the Shrimp/Bacon Mac & Cheese. Mine was really creamy with the right mix of shrimp and bacon. Both of our entrees were really good and we definitely want to go back again to hang on the deck. I cannot wait to go back and try their tuna, as it looked incredible. I do have to say that we ordered the cup cake trio for dessert and it was the one thing that I definitely would not recommend, it looked and tasted like it had been in the fridge for a few days.
I would recommend Coast to anyone who enjoys seafood, it was a little pricy, but for the serving size and the quality of the food it is worth it. Overall I would give Coast 3 out of 5 beers.
