We were a little leery about this place, seeing it from the street. The sign and building are really outdated, but I was intrigued by the fact it was advertising for pancakes and lobster. I love to find local places when we travel and try them out--why eat at an Olive Garden or something, you can get that anywhere? Well, we were not disappointed in this place at all. The selection on the menus is incredible--lamb, pork, crab, steak, sandwiches, breakfast...this place has it all! And I still can't believe you get soup, salad, potato, vegetable, drink, AND dessert with your meals. Our service was outstanding and our food was pretty much first-rate (I could have done without peas on my garden salad, and the soup wasn't anything to write home about). My husband got steak and lobster and I got the seafood platter and the value was much better than what you'd get at, say, Red Lobster...much larger lobster tail, King Crab instead of snow crab, not to mention two extra sides and a drink included.
The restaurant's decor is VERY out-of-date, but it's sort of charming in its own way. The women's bathroom in particular was appalling--looked like a peppermint threw up in there. But it also contributes to a unique ambiance--Coachman's is definitely like no other restaurant I've been to, and in a good way. Great place.
Pros: the selection, the prices, the value
Cons: tackiness, no payment by credit/debit
