Coastal Grille is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant with amazing food. It is fine dining with tablecloths on one side and more casual dining on the other side - or sit at the bar where all the regulars eat. The food has been consistent for years...More

This was my parents' neighborhood restaurant. CG moved into the old hardware/post office across the street a year ago. The new structure is indeed fancy-schmancy (free valet parking) and I had my fingers crossed the dining experience would still be laid back as in days...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!
