I have driven by this "dive" 30 times. OK don't judge a book by its cover. It looks like a seafood shack in the middle of nowhere. Hidden inside is a great restaurant with great views. Service is fantastic..Clearly a team approach. Trish was attentive and helpful. Started with shredded brussel sprouts. A great cold app that is more of a salad. Cheese and nuts round it out. Main course two very large crab cakes--lots of lump meat. Moist and flavorful.Served with really tasty fries with bay seasoning. My guest ordered the seafood stew and she loved the shellfish and fish in it. She thought the sauce was a bit spicy. The waitress seemed genuinely interested in the feedback and said she would tell the chef. The dining room is small but has great views of the bay. Great for sunset. It was also 1/2 price wine night which was nice. Will gladly return again in my many trips to OC. Ranks with Coins as to the crab cakes but wins easily on the sides and appetizers and atmosphere. A welcome addition to my best of the best in the OC area.

Always great food. Scenic view. Service is very good. Only problem (and a big one during the summer) is that they don't take reservations.

We tried Blue Coast for the first time on a Sunday night in the deadest part of the year in Bethany. We were quite pleased with our visit from both a ambiance and food quality standpoint.

We shared an appetizer of shrimp dumplings which was excellent. Two people shared the crab cakes and the portions were more than adequate for two ladies. One of us had the Pan seared cod and they were very pleased. I had the 19 three course special and chose the Mussels Linguini It was excellent as well.

Over all, we were very pleased and would return.

Glad you took advantage of the Sunday Supper. We run specials all week, and the crabcake entree is only $19 every Monday!

We have eaten here many times. Always good. If I have any criticism its that they don't change the menu very often. During the season the wait can be discouraging

Hi

Thanks for your ongoing support and for taking the time to share your experiences with the TripAdvisor community. I'm so glad that you've had consistently great expereinces with us. Regarding the menu, we try to change it up with the seasons, so roughly 3-4 times a year. We try not to change it more than that because we know that people fall in love with and come back for certain dishes. We try to change our special sheet up daily to weekly. Unfortunately the wait can get lenghty in the summer time. We try to do all we can to make it as easy as possible! If you need anything please do not hesitate to reach out either via TA message or email at mike at sodelconcepts dot com.

Thanks

I read about this place in a local guide book. Since we were visiting in December, many local places were closed. Decided to give Blue Coast a try. Don't let the exterior fool you, the inside is very nice and upscale. Ate on a monday and they had an excellent crab cake meal for 19.00. Mussels, oysters, seared tuna, and clams were all excellent. Great service and attentive staff. Only downer, no substituting fries when you get the crabcakes. That said, would surely go there again.
