Very nice location, with beautiful views of the Atlantic. Even in early September, patio seating was fine, the fans kept the temperature comfortable.

Food bland, small portions, and overpriced. Mo hint of taste. We had the mahi and grouper. Tiny vegetable portion. We had a lovely table with ocean view. Service was good. Will not return.

We took our niece for dinner on Friday night. My husband Started with lobster bisque which was excellent as always. She & I had the server make us a mixture of clam & conch chowder which I call “ Miami Vice”. It’s not on the menu. Husband had a delicious steak & lobster combo. She & I had an angel hair pasta dish which had chicken & shrimp, pine nuts, & fresh tomatoes. It was so yummy! Wine was great. View is unmatched. Service impeccable. Love our neighborhood Sea Watch!

My wife enjoyed the lobster special and I tried the seafood paella. We drive down from Boynton Beach to enjoy the ambiance, food and service which are all excellent, and the Key lime pie is most delicious. Definitely you are one of our favorite restaurants.

My experience with Sea Watch has always been outstanding. I brought a big group to the restaurant at one time so this last weekend when I had company from out of state visiting we went back. We had a great experience again. Starting with the hostesses all the way to the end result was 1st class. The food was exceptional. Our waiter David did a wonderful job giving us attention and also time to enjoy each other at the table.
Thank you for living up and exceeding my expectations. Nancy C

Really enjoyed dinner but the waitress wasn't very friendly. She appeared to be annoyed when I asked a question about substituting lobster bisque for the clam chowder and whether the lobster were male or female. (There is a difference)

The location on the beach is a unique bonus of the restaurant. We, by accident, had a reservation on their early dining/early bird menu and it was very good. Server seemed to be over tasked and sometimes left us hanging more than customary and when the entre' arrived two were very hot, one a bit less than hot and one almost stone cold. Took a few minutes to get the food temps corrected and the rest of the evening was perfect.

The early bird special is a pretty good deal. If you go often, however, the choice is very limited and you become bored with it. It would be good to put one or two regular dishes on the menu once in a while. Lunch is very good because you can see the ocean and beach. At night it is just black outside the windows.

Beautiful Place with a great view but unfortunately the food is not worth what you pay for. Extremely over priced for the quality of the food. I hate leaving negative reviews , I really try hard to look for the positive so I will say the only thing I might recomend this beautiful place for would be for drinks at a table with the ocean view, also the waitress was very attentive and pleasant.

My favorite restaurant for special occasions. The food is always great, as are the service & atmosphere. My only issue is that for the money the portions could be larger.

Despite having reservations for a graduation celebration we were not greeted warmly and placed at a table in the back of the restaurant.
The fresh steamed lobster was tough and lacked flavor. Overall very disappointing “special” celebration meal.

We were promptly seated and had a great view of the sea. The atmosphere was relaxing and the fish entrees (salmon and orange roughy) were excellent. If in doubt, get an early reservation, relax, and enjoy the dinner and ocean view.
