I couldn't decide whether to classify this as a restaurant or a nightclub because it acted as both. In any case...

The Coast is the St. John's (and Antigua's for that matter) place to be. Located on the coast of this capital city's bay, the atmosphere gives you a sense of high-class, yet open air dining. The food...wonderful. Many items on the menu to choose from, including Italian, seafood, Caribbean, and American dishes. And you won't have to dig deep in your wallet by the end of the night either (that is, unless you hit up the bar quite a bit). Service...service is something to be desired. The low point of this review, if you will. In America, I guess we're used to being pushed into a seat, and pulled out as quickly as possible. Here, they take the term waiter to heart. Bring a good voice, as you'll need it to call your waiter over to refill glasses, bring the check, etc. They accept East Caribbean Dollars and US Dollars, which was nice and convenient. But here, at the turn, it becomes fun.

Each night, around 10:30pm (22:30) or so, a live band comes and jams out at a stage connected to the restaurant. I went on a Wednesday night and was graced by the sweet playing of a local favorite, the 3 Cylinders Band. All in dreads, all rasta men, all hilarious. They played native Caribbean music, then some good ole American classics like "Roseanna", "Africa", "What If God Was One of Us", and others. The band was great, but the atmosphere was better. The dance floor is inviting to all, regardless of color or race. One minute you're dancing with your friends, the next you're jumping up and down next to a local. This friendly atmosphere gave us the best nightlife on the whole trip. The Coast really is THE place to be if you're in Antigua for the night.
