Stopped at Coastal Taco for a drink in the middle of the afternoon. Very pretty space with a nice fireplace. Welcoming bar facing the water. Bartender was attentive and drinks were very good. I highly recommend the spicy pineapple margarita.

We're a bar-focused restaurant with a seafood-heavy menu built around tacos, tamales and margaritas. We have fantastic outdoor seating, the patio is cantilevered out over the river.
