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.

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.

This is one of my goto places in the area. Love the variety on the menu and the drinks are top-notch. Service is good and the value is fair for eating with an ocean view. I will be back again and again with friends and family.

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.

We have eaten at Seaside grill many times and each time the food is wonderful.. They have a great bar and wine list also. Our last visit was more of the same (great) as the food was wonderful, the drinks were great and our service team was the best. We will keep coming back, thanks

This is a rundown restaurant. Tables show their age. We ordered the clam chowder and lobster bisque. Both were over seasoned. Never saw grey clam chowder before. Stuffed Mahi was overcooked
(dry) . Ordered seafood combo ( crab legs and lobster) , all over cooked and rubbery. Had to ask for seafood utensils twice. No one ever came over to check how things were. No wet naps or towel to clean my hands. The topper was I valeted the car and the attendant left. Took at least 10 minutes for them to find the keys to my car

Spinach dip was great, ribs were good and jerk grouper could use a little more spice.

Our recent initial dining experience was most enjoyable regarding excellent service, quality and presentation of food. Two concerns: If one prefers a more formal setting then one must take into account the very casual nature and location of this restaurant which accounts for beachwear clad patrons (diners in tank tops etc.) I'd like to bring a wheelchair bound individual to experience this restaurant but I don't recall seeing an elevator that accesses the restaurant's level.
My only real complaint would be the filthy and extremely worn lobby step carpeting leading to the restaurant level (gross, unappetizing and unacceptable). Surely management is aware of same but it appears no one cares.

Was lucky to find a spot to park. Very small parking lot for restaurant and hotel. Was seated quickly. From the pictures I thought you had a real view of the ocean. Nope mostly pool and the tiki bar view. Just a small and I mean small view of the ocean. Ordered drinks and they tasted good. I ordered stuffed crab mahi and asked for it to be blackened. Food came and not blackened at all but tasted good. Told waiter when he came to table after it was half eaten and he did offer to take it back and have them fix it...no thank you..so I didnt even get a discount on my bill for my food being wrong. Not even offer a free dessert or drink. My husband's ribs were good and no complaints on his meal. I dont expect things for free but some kind of I'm sorry would have been nice. So overpriced with no real view. Wont eat there again on any future trips.

The waiter was dripping in sweat, we watched our drinks sitting at the bar for over 15 minutes before being picked up and brought to us. The calamari was clearly frozen and reheated. Worst calamari I’ve ever had. We left after our appetizer.
