The Goin Coastal Team
The restaurant, which also has a location in Canton that opened in 2006, specialized in sustainable fish and other seafood dishes.
Former AJC food critic John Kessler called Goin Coastal “a little bit Gulf seafood shack, a little bit uptown bistro and a whole lot of unconvincing Lowcountry-style cookery,” when he reviewed it in 2010.
“Goin' Coastal trumpets a wonderful mission statement, and that's what it needs to focus on,” he wrote. “We're in a huge non-coastal city with the world's busiest airport, but nowhere near the seafood cultures of the Gulf and Atlantic coasts. Focus on buying fish from responsible sources, cook it with the care it merits, and then I'll bite.”
