This is a relaxing, beautiful hideaway bistro for long conversations over delicious delectables. Staff is very professional, warm, and service is exquisite and even memorable. Cozy place for late dinner or fresh fish, burgers for lunch. Top rate.

First, the good: the coffee is strong and wonderful; the oysters were very good. BUT, we both ordered medium rare steaks. Mine was well done; my companion's medium. We sent them back. After waiting way longer than it would take to cook our steaks properly, let alone to barely cook them at all (and we were the only patrons in... More

My husband and I had a little time in the late afternoon, so we headed to the Coast thinking that it might be Happy Hour for special prices on appetizer. Not on Fridays. We did get Sam Adams bottled beer for $3. We decided on a Build Your Own Burger with sweet potato fries and Chicken BLT with regular fries.... More

The wait staff and bar manager were very welcoming and extremely attentive in a quiet way. They all seemed to collaborate and exemplify great teamwork. We grazed on several appetizers-tasty, lightly-breaded fried calamari ; chicken wings with a variety of sauces; and English-style pub fries with a choice of 3 accompanying sauces from an offering of 6 in total, including...

They went way, way above and beyond usual and customary. The food was good too. We stopped in on Sunday afternoon after the brunch crowd. My friend has been asking me for month to come and try it. We were greeted at the bar with a warm welcome. We were quickly informed of the 50 cent wings and $10 Bloody... More

Stopped in after seeing a movie on a cold January night. The fire was blazing, the lighting was nice and the food was super!. Love the small plates menu. A must try is the basket of kale chips. This bar and bistro is a hidden Brunswick treasure. Will be back again.

The restaurant is in The Daniel Hotel. We had two dinners and a lunch at Coast during a two night stay at the hotel. We are from Boston, so our impressions are based on comparisons to restaurants in a much larger city. Coast compares favorably on all fronts. The seating is spacious and many tables are close to a gas... More

Had a great dinner here the other night while visiting friends up in Maine. The last time we had been to this restaurant was about 20 years ago. What a great atmosphere with a large fireplace and cozy decor. The food was amazing. We had a variety of appetizers including some chicken wings, breadsticks, and calamari. We had several different... More

Stayed at hotel for one night and had a few appetizers (one of which was offered free with our room) and a beer. The decor, presentation of food and cleanliness were great, but the wait time was lengthy. Also, no children's menu, so would not attempt with a picky eater (French fries w/dipping sauces might work). Sat near the fire,... More
