Coast is another restaurant owned by the huge Global Group in Vancouver. It is where British Columbia fresh seafood is highlighted. It offers a true west-coast dining experience in a trendy and fun environment. What’s best about Coast is its “Happy Hour” menu! It’s got an extensive list of appies that you can pick from at 50% off during 3-6pm everyday. My girlfriend and I came to try it out.
First up is their “Lobster Poutine”, a 5oz. Atlantic lobster tail with smoked bacon and a sunny-side-up egg on top of a layer of poutine underneath. This was the attention grabber of the night, if you get this, your tables next to you will definitely peak over. The poutine was heavy but what the heck it’s a poutine!
Fresh from the oven is a smoked salmon flatbread with dill crème fraîche, red onion, capers and arugula. This was a little on the chewy/hard side instead of crispy, but the flavours were incredible. Loved it!
On top of their Happy Hour special, they also have freshly shucked oysters for a buck! They were decent sized, but for a dollar this was totally worth it. I’m not sure how I feel about their complimenting sauces.
This was a very interesting chowder. First, it wasn’t the colour I was expecting. Second, it tasted fabulous. Filled with manila clams, double smoked bacon and potatoes.
Also got a bottle of Rickard’s on special for $5.
Overall, I was pleased with the Happy Hour offerings at Coast. I would say everything was executed well, but like always there’s room for improvement. The service was great, our server was attentive. Overall an enjoyable experience. The price is fair, depending on what you order, prices may add up.
