I have been coming to Sea Watch for special occasions for the past 30 years. Today’s experience was a disaster. We were seated and the waitress took our drink order. There was a mix up and she corrected it. Then all of a sudden the soup and salad came in less than 5 minutes. The soup was lukewarm. Next thing I know the main course came out. I have never been so rushed with dinner in my life. The food was also lukewarm. We ordered the corn bread The table opposite us had the corn bread and you could see the steam coming out. Ours wasn’t even warm. It was a very disappointing evening. It was my husband’s birthday celebration and was just a disaster. I had coffee and dessert and the waitress came over to see if I wanted another cup of coffee. I guess since it was now after 6 pm she slowed down. I told her no thank you, but the coffee was the hottest thing all night. She said why didn’t you say something and tried to tell us it wasn’t so. She said something about the timing. Then she said well it doesn’t matter the customer is always right. We sat down at 5:05 pm and the reservation was 5:15. We left by 6:15. Very disappointing. I have been there for the sunset dinner and was never rushed like this.

The Seawatch is one of our favorites! We are always treated to great service and delicious food! Every table has a great view, though I prefer to sit on the “porch”! We love the Dinner at Dusk menu and pricing but have eaten here at other times and was just as pleased! Beautiful ocean views! Great service and food!!

My family had our last dinner there before flying home the next day. The waitress would not remember to bring you a refill when asked. Had to be reminded a couple of times about our requests. My son’s scallops were not cooked through. Other than that the view was great and our waitress was very nice and food came quickly.

Not a very good waitress. We ordered off the early dinner and yes its only $24 for 3 courses but my husbands sirloin steak which he's gotten the past 3 years in a row was much smaller this time. My garden salad had like 2 very small pieces of the greek olives. She only came back once to see how things were.
We have a condo right down the street so its easy to get to. However not sure if we'll be back for dinner in 2020.

Our Uber driver was a local ( for 30 years) and recommended Sea Watch as the best restaraunt in town. The food was outstanding as was our waitress. When we go back to Ft Lauderdale we will definitely stop there for another dinner.

On Thursday July 11th I made a 7pm appointment to celebrate our 26th wedding Anniversary. We headed down the coast from the Pam Beach area to one of our favorite restaurants to celebrate this special occasion. The reservation was confirmed and we arrived right on time. To our surprise people were outside and we were told by the Valet that the fire alarm was going off due to a power surge. Suddenly all of the wait staff exited the building and we were told to leave. After the fire trucks arrived we decided to create a plan B. We had an exceptional dinner at Houston’s who quickly accommodated us after we told them about our situation and celebration changes. I understand that things happen but very disappointed no follow up from the management of Sea Watch since the abrupt stop of business and halt to enjoy our special occasion at this facility that we have enjoyed in the past.

The view during the day at Sea Watch is beautiful and the service was very good. However, the food was not exceptional at all. We have been going to this restaurant for years and the quality is not the same. Two of us had the lobster rolls and they were not wonderful. Two of the group had the open, melted crabmeat sandwich and it was definitely not lump crab. I had the cobb salad and it was good, but not as good as many other restaurants. The bloody Mary's were very good and the desserts we shared were wonderful.

My wife and I dine here every time we are in Pompano Beach area. We always go for the Dinner at Dusk. It is a good deal and offers a varied menu. This time the service was average. The food was served hurriedly as if they wanted us to eat and leave so they could turn the table quickly. No conversation on the part of the waitress and no check backs. There was a large party that may have been taking up her attention but we arrived at least 30 minutes before them and deserved better service. The restaurant is a cut above most in the area and a nice place to go usually. My wife and I had the 1 1/4 lb lobster dinner.

I took my girlfriend for her birthday and was so pleasantly surprised by the perfection of the evening. The Sea Watch Restaurant was outstanding from the moment we arrived, to the comfortable booth facing the ocean, to our server, the value of the Dinner at Dusk. I look forward to going back soon.

Sea Watch has been a favorite of ours for many years. We were with friends and could not even hold a conversation because of the noise level from a table of people. No one we heard ever asked them to “tone it down”, they just allowed this table to disrupt the dining experience for the whole room. Service was wonderful, but the rest of this visit was totally not up to par.

We went to Dinner at Dusk and that is an excellent value. Whole Maine lobster, soup or salad, and dessert for under $35 including a 20% tip. There are also other items on the Dinner at Dusk menu, but I go for the lobster! The food was very good. The decor is a little dated, but it is clean. The service was very good. Nice view of the ocean. Valet parking. I always try to go there when I am in South Florida.
