Description: Serving up American classics from the lengths of the great states. We're talking burgers, steaks and pizzas. If it's smoky, crispy, sticky or spicy, we discovered it and we're serving it with a giant helping of hospitality and a glass of barrel-aged bourbon on the side.

After downloading the Coast to Coast app, I found a voucher online for 40% off. Myself and two friends visited to see what was going on. I had visited before, but not for a good 3 or 4 years. After being greeted by a rather confused looking manager, who looked around an empty restaurant to find us a table, we were seated in a rather nice booth. Within minutes a waitress appeared and took a drinks order. We then proceeded to wait around 10 minutes for those drinks to arrive. After placing our order; three starters, three mains, we began our next wait.

The food was good. Steak cooked to perfection. The red win sauce was questionable but did a good job giving flavour to the meat.

My only real criticism would be the service, the one waitress constantly looked busy and rushed off her feet- maybe a little under staffed that day? But other than that, a very good food experience enjoyed by all.

Would return, and recommend.

Regretfully the quality of the food here was so poor that I have emailed to the food standards agency at Brighton & Hove City Council. Firstly, the service was beyond shocking, and we waited 40 minutes just to get a drink at the table. We arrived at 8pm on Saturday 31st March. The quality of the food was poor but being too tired to bother finding anything else, especially after such a long wait for drinks, we carried on.

We ordered Mac & Cheese balls to start and then a Chicken burger and a Chilli burger. We got back around 11pm, which was a 15 minute walk home. We both started to experience rumbling and feeling nauseous on the way home. By 11.30pm my friend (who I was staying with) was violently ill (both ends) with what was clearly food poisoning. Ten minutes later, I started myself, and have spent the night using the toilet. This morning we where both exhausted and feeling dreadful, and badly dehydrated.

It was either the food, which I think was unlikely, or a serious breach of personal hygiene by someone in the kitchen or the food chain. Either way we will not be going back under any circumstances, and I know my friend intends to demand a full refund. We went Dutch on a bill of £50 for both of us and neither of us expected such a shocking outcome.

As a duty of care to others, I have copied this the food standards agency asking that they investigate independently. This is the first time I have ever felt compelled to take such drastic action but it is high time that these chain restaurants improved their standards and understood that the consequences of poor personal hygiene can be dire.

Never visited this restaurant ever and wanted to see what it was like. Service was a little slow and they seem to be pretty overwhelmed... i had to ask for a new Cutlery set 3 times as they kept giving me sets with food on then blames the machine... you would of thought after the first complaint they would have checked the new set. Also the bar had lots of uses glasses left on it which was the area they make the new drinks so I was making sure to watch they didn’t pick up one of the used drinks .. since the cutlery incident... They have a excellent range of cocktails which I was a fan of. The food was nice but it was average and the price isn’t too bad . I would most probably come here for the drinks because they are very good no faults on them! I recommend the Pornstar!

We came to your restaurant on 31/3/18 it was a Saturday so very busy, we were welcomed by a manager (I think) shown to our table. The waiter who came and took our orders was very patient as we are quite picky eaters, unfortunately someone doesn’t read what is written as things we asked not to be put in or on were given, but the waiter was very good took the food away and made sure it was right. All in all the food was very good, will go again, thank you.

Chose to try to eat here out of the plenty of restaurants on offer at Brighton Marina. The restaurant was dark and floor filthy despite it only have 1 other table occupied. We were seated and given menus by a man and after about 2 minuted a waitress came and her exact words were “obviously this table is booked so obviously you will have to move”. We explained that we had been seated here by her colleague and she then launched a massive monologue about how someone who has made a reservation takes priority and used the word “obviously” about 16 times. It really got our back up and we left. It was so rude and I thought I was being spoken to by a school child. We won’t bother to try again. Walked a few yards to Prezzo and had a lovely family meal.
