Seafood
Located in the historic Lighthouse Cove Resort, Seaside Grill was opened in the fall of 2011 by Owner Bret Hughes. Our vision is to create a fun and casual dining atmosphere on the beautiful Atlantic Shores of Pompano Beach. We serve wonderful and original seafood specials along with other delicious Floridian fare. Call us biased, but we think Seaside Grill is the perfect place to host your events or simply a great place to cheer on the Dolphins (or Steelers!) while chugging frosty brew.. Our beautiful beach side view couples perfectly with our various food offerings to give your event what it needs to impress any attendees. Fresh seafood, ocean views and frosty cocktails...come and experience what everyone is talking about.

Very disappointing, ambiance pleasant, waiter was fine, food was poor. Chicken tenders were so thin, it was more breading than chicken. Mashed potatoes on all plates were cold and had to be sent back. Carrots also cold. Shrimp on the salad were good, rest of the salad was poor at best. Rib dinner was cold and had to be sent back. All in all, not someplace I would recommend or return to.

Great seafood restaurant in Pompano beach. Had the seafood trio and was very satisfied. Be aware that the lobster does have a Cajun seasoning on it. Thought it was yummy but did take away from the lobster flavor. Scallops were cooked perfect and crab legs were very fresh. Came during happy hour and would highly recommend the watermelon sangria on the happy hour map
Charles B was our service. Absolutely outstanding! Attentive and friendly even though you could tel he was slammed.

We always enjoy eating here. The service was very good, as they were very busy, but we were taken care of immediately. The coconut shrimp was delicious. And the dessert
Was really delicious. Definitely will return soon.

We love the music here on Saturday nights. And the food is quite good. Our favorite starter is the clams in white wine and garlic. The little necks are always fresh, sweet and in good number! Entrees were both shrimp, fried and coconut. Both come with 2 sides and generous portions. A good evening was had by all!

Good size meal portions, food and drink was delicious, definitely a hangout/dinner spot for the older snow bird crowd. Live music was played during dinner on Saturday — louder noise in the dining room than expected but nice for a Saturday night. Seafood was awesome- tasty and definitely fresh and cooked well.

We think it’s overrated. The restaurant needs to update their interior big time. Also, it claims it’s a waterfront restaurant. It’s not. Food is so,so and so is the service.

Excellent Christmas lunch. Bottomless "buffet" where wait staff refill your plate as many times as you wish. Prime rib was v e r y t a s t y, so we had seconds while considering thirds. Lovely view, and our waitress was very welcoming and attentive. Thank you!

The atmosphere is underwhelming - dated and unimpressive. However the food was quite delicious - very fresh seafood and salads. There was a toddler who screamed very loudly for a long time. The parents seemed to make no effort to soothe the kid or take her away so that customers could enjoy their meals in peace. Kudos to the FABULOUS staff member who came over and did some kind of magic to get that kid quiet. I would definitely go back when I am in the mood for good food and value vs a trendier or more upscale experience.

Such a surprise to find live music on a Saturday night. We really like the food here but this particular evening everything was fabulous. We started with steamed clams and an extra order of garlic bread to sop up the sauce. The three of us chose a special swordfish with a pineapple sauce served with rice and broccoli. The fish was very fresh and absolutely delicious. We drank 2 bottles of reasonably priced wine while enjoying the singer. Excellent service by
Ritchie who has taken care of us before....great evening.

I enjoy live music, but we were seated so close to the entertainer that we weren’t able to carry a conversation. The food was decent, not exceptional. The fried shrimp were heavily breaded, which could easily mask not so fresh seafood. I hadn’t expected jumbo shrimp, so that was a nice surprise, but on second thought it’s almost as if I got a plate of the coconut shrimp without the coconut sauce… hm. But I’ll stand by the 3-star review. Good basic food, not bad, not exceptional. And the resorts seem to hand out $10 off $25 coupons regularly, so it’s a cheaper date night.

We miss the live music that used to be a Friday night staple. But the food is quite good and rather makes up for it. We always start with the steamed clams...sweet and small that require an extra order of garlic bread to sop up the delicious sauce. Dinners were a taco salad with blackened shrimp and fried shrimp with a baked potato and coke slaw. Portions are generous. Seafood is fresh. Very good service by Ritchie

Our waiter was great, the jerk shrimp appetizer was very tasty, but the herb snapper was not fresh, clearly frozen fish fillet. Disappointed that the food could be better/fresher. Good location, but you end up looking at people’s balconies/rooms, and water all the way in the back. Okay to try once, would not return.

I decided to go to Seaside Grill based on the menu online. I had a mango strawberry margarita and I ordered the blackened seafood platter which included mahi-mahi shrimp and scallops. I had a house salad and garlic mashed potatoes. My mother had the appetizer coconut shrimp to my daughter had the chicken fingers platter. The food was excellent the blackened dish I had was so well seasoned especially the shrimp very flavorful. I enjoyed all of it. We had a great server as well.

Food was blant and far from how it is presented in pictures which are, I believe, a big factor in making a decision about a restaurant for most. Service was actually not bad. Our waitress was nice enough but not super jolly. Seaside? Arguably. Sea is a bit far from the restaurant and a pool is really what you get to see. There was a band that played acoustic so music was pleasant and not loud at all.
I don't think there is a reason for me to go back there.

The food was excellent. Properly seasoned, prepared and displayed. A table by a window overlooking the beach and ocean was a plus.i would recommend dining there and make certain to request Fred to be your server. He was definitely a great addition to a wonderful dining experience. If there was a drawback it was the fact that it could have been a little cooler.
