One Coastal is a relatively new restaurant in Fenwick Island. The table seating is limited but many diners ate at the bar. The service was friendly, prompt and attentive with being intrusive. The dishes were very well prepared. Two in our party ordered the pork chop. Both were very please. The scallops were also very pleasing. My halibut was good but perhaps slightly over done. The vegetables and appetizers were a highlight. The roasted carrots and risotto were the best of the sides. The crostini was also quite good.

This a restaurant for grown ups with fairly sophisticated tastes. Children are welcome, but I did not see a children’s menu. We’ll be back.

Another trip to One Coastal, another fantastic meal.

We made reservations and noted it was to celebrate our anniversary. When we arrived and gave our name we immediately seated and wished happy anniversary and had a nice note card on the table. After each of us ordering a Coastal Crush, we had a nice discussion with our server about the menu and the features. We chose the crab guac for starters. As before the chips and crab,corn and flavors were spot on, but we were a bit short on the avocado, so it was not to the usual standard. The mains we chose were the scallops which i had with risotto and Parmesan asparagus, and the fish special which was steel head trout served on wild rice and greens. The scallops meal was as perfect as I think it could have been made, delicious and perfect textured scallops, very light and flavorful risotto and excellent asparagus. My wife loved the trout that came highly recommended by our server, it was much more mild yet flavorful than salmon. We closed with a yummy coconut cake which was huge!!

I thought the only blemish was the avocado in the appetizer, otherwise one of the best nights out anywhere on the eastern shore. Some say they feel rushed here, but we did not. The food comes up faster than the very large restaurants, but I think that is the beauty of One Coastal, a small restaurant and kitchen that makes ever meal to order and with great care. The same is true if the most eager and helpful serving staff in the area. I am so pleased to be able to stop in 1-2 times every season and have a great experience.

dining with the bride and another couple, looking for something different. One Coastal was close to our friends condo so we ventured down.
Small place only seating 50 and 18 or so was bar seating.
They take reservations which is a plus for a beach restaurant.
Ordered cocktails and viewed the menu. Went for the pork chop, med.rare. Got some greens with it which was just enough food, and perfect.
Everyone was happy with their dinner, home run!

The food at One Coastal was superb. Fortunately we made a reservation the week before as the place seemed full. We went without our kids and celebrated our anniversary. The staff acknowledged it on arrival. The smoked old fashion drink was unique and tasty. The grouper over turnip pancake special was incredibly good. The crab cake was done to perfection. The red blend wine was very reasonably priced and good. I’d recommend saving some room for dessert. Our berry pie was the best! The prices are high but reasonable given the quality of the food. The restaurant is small and all indoors without much of a view but it doesn’t matter if they continue to focus on the food and overall dining experience. We will be sure to come next time in OC!!!

Food was very good. Servings were small for the price. We had our 4 year old granddaughter with us and there aren’t really any good options for children. I had Crab Cake dinner with asparagus and potatoes. My wife had the Pork Chop with broccoli and potatoes. Both were excellent. Granddaughter had pasta which was very bland. It was something different than the normal beach restaurants.
