“More than worth the trip!!! Authentic local cuisine.”
Reviewed 4 April 2011

Literally in the middle of nowhere!

This is one of the best lunch meals I've ever had. Fried okra, fried green tomatoes, amazing smoked chicken you wouldn't believe!!

Fresh local mullet and hush puppies. Everything breaded just right.

And what's with the roll? I think it was lightly fried, too.

But come early in the week, because by Friday they are fresh out of the pulled pork (although they will tell you how great it is!!)

We had a really sweet young waitress who told us that she grew up in Sumatra and there were only 6 children living there at the time.

“Great food!”
Reviewed 3 June 2010

I am a frequent visitor to this restaurant as I live in the area. The food has always been terrific at Family Coastal - I don't ever remember a meal that was not good. Prices are good for the amount of food you get as well. Only real complaint is with the service - some of the wait staff aren't always kind and make you feel like you're a burden on them.

“great food and great service”
Reviewed 7 May 2010

We tried this restaurant tonight at the advice of friends. It took an hour to find, but boy was it worth it. The food was awesome, we had the fish sampler plate with 4 different kinds of fish. The fish was fresh, breaded just right and more than your stomach could hold. If you want great fish at super good prices, try this place out. It is definately worth the drive. They also have steaks and gator. The service makes you feel welcome and a part of the family. We will definitly be back.

“All you can eat”
Reviewed 28 April 2010

Wow this place was great. All you can eat seafood for a great price. We had all you can eat shrimp for $12.99. There is something on the menu for everyone. My kids loved the burgers and corndogs. Prices ranged from $4.50 to $26.99 making this place easy to fit in any budget.
