    We wanted to celebrate and chose Seaglass from our past experiences. It was a stormy night and we thought about sitting in front of their fireplace, but they had the water lit up so we luckily chose instead to sit by the window. What a view! The waves were crashing under us. Yes, under us. Seaglass is built over the beach, so you feel as though you are on a boat, minus the rocking. The Clams Casino were small and tasty without a lot of bread or fluff. They were perfectly cooked and a great start. The BLT salad was a decadent treat for us and the Monday night Haddock special at $9.99 couldn't be beat. Overall, we had a wonderful meal complete with a half bottle of Verve Cliqout and outstanding, attentive service. Thank you for making our celebration all the more special.

    This restaurant is located right on the edge of the beach with outside window views of the ocean from just about every table. In the center of the dining area is a large working fire place. Our server was friendly and took time to answer any questions about the entrees. The entrees were good but not outstanding. They consisted of a chopped BLT salad with blue cheese and ranch dressing. (They "forgot" the blue cheese.) Sirloin steak and scallops, Lamb Shank Osso Bucco.(The steak was cold, the shank was excellent) Seasonal bread pudding drizzled with a raspberry sauce, fresh whipped cream and vanilla ice cream (tasty). We were told there is an upstairs opening soon with a tavern menu and feel. We may try that next time.

    We had the shrimp scampi, which needed nothing to be perfectly edible, a small Ceasar salad, fresh, and nice anchovies. Also the gigantic rib-eye, cooked well, and large enough for two or perhaps even three people on a normal night. I ate the entire thing. The prices are slightly high but not enough to spoil the mood. Something about the place was relaxing and good, and near to the music, just across the hall. I think we will be back.

    Great place to dine on the water. The food is very good and reasonable. Certainly a place to bring on a first date or special occasion. If you want to be more casual sit in the bar area. I have not been there at night, but I understand it is very nice.

    Dined on 10/20/2014
    The view is lovely, but the food was very average. Consider the haddock sandwich I had. The bun was soggy, smeared with too much flavorless tarter sauce, and the fish, although good, was covered with a salsa that clashed with the tarter sauce and overpowered the fish. It was accompanied by lettuce and a tomato which made no sense sense since it had a salsa on it. The side of sweet potatoes were very unevenly cooked and pretty flavorless. It was a lovely place to have lunch and nothing was bad, but nothing was especially good either.

    We went there for lunch to celebrate my sister's birthday, but didn't realize that on Sunday it's only the brunch. Didn't matter! They served everything from shrimp, fish, a carving station, salads, vegetables, breakfast meats, build your own omelets and assorted desserts. I don't usually like 'buffet style' food, but everything was fresh, hot and delicious. Definitely telling my friends and returning!

    Over all a very good dining experience. I'd mention 2 small changes that would have improved my visit. The reservation experience needed some work. I made them online thru Open Table. It mentioned having to call the restaurant to insure that special requests (window table) were ok. I called and talked with restaurant and was told that my request was fine and my reservation was confirmed. I also received a confirming email. The following day I received a voice mail saying that I had to call the restaurant to confirm reservations. I ignored the additional request. 1 1/2 hrs b4 our reservation I received a call asking if we were coming. Over kill. Our waitress failed to mention that there were specials available for selections.

    Somewhat disappointed, although our entree's were fine, the ceasar salad was a disappointment - the server forgot to put the dressing on the salad and brought out a small cup of bottle dressing, the shrimp cocktail was not worth the price and the bread pudding didn't have anything in it.

    Our reservation was for 1:00 p.m. As requested, we were able to sit at an Oceanside window seat. The buffet was sparse, most chafing dishes empty or nearly empty. Shrimp & roast beef gone, we were able to enjoy a few shrimp just prior to leaving as more were brought out. It looked like we were too late, though the buffet still had another hour to go. Wait person did not offer more coffee or water but had to be asked. Second cup of coffee was luke warm. Return customer, first and last time buffet customer. Left feeling ripped off & hungry.

    sitting right at ocean's edge, with a wall of windows, the view is great. there's an extensive wine list, but i haven't been drinking wine lately so I didn't give it a good look. there are several beers on tap but I wouldn't call it a craft beer haven. there's a good menu. lots of tasty appetizers and several salads. There's a good range of main courses with lots of seafood choices, several pasta dishes and many grill choices. The wait staff is always pleasant and attentive, although things can slow down if a big group comes in. seaglass is worth a visit.

    We visited on a night while there was a storm out to see right before high tide, so the ocean was a spectacular show that everyone could see right from their table. Our table was on the south window. I think the east facing window would have been even better. The food and service was just as good as the view. The wine list was a little lack-luster though.

    Seaglass was an excellent choice for a girls luncheon, service was great,food delicious (mussels,salad and a glass of Chardonnay for me). Most notable was the view by the window,even on a dreary day it was so great to look at the ocean,peaceful! They also did not rush us out so we stayed for 2 hours!! We then went to the gift shop and Anne was wonderful! Definitely will be back!

    This is always a special place for us. This time my food was great but my wife's salmon had been sitting under a heat lamp for too long and everything was dried out including the vegatables. However they made every effort to correct their mistake and brought all fresh food out quickly and it was great.

    On my reservation I told them I was celebrating 3 BIRTHDAYS...MY HUSBAND 50 and our two sons 23 and 17. We never got a "HAPPY BIRTHDAY...or even an offer for a cupcake. We usually go to Morton's in Boston and they give us speical menu's with their names on it and always have a small cake to celebrate. More detail would have gone a long way. The food was good and the price was good.We got there a little early and had to wait for the window seat, which I was excited about UNTIL we were put on the side of the resturant and again this was a let down as well. I was excited about going to Seaglass and maybe I was expecting more and I was let down. Would I go back YES...but not for a speical occassion. It's not sort of place in my opinion.

    I made reservations at the Seaglass for our 36th anniversary. I asked for a seat overlooking the water but unfortunately did not get one. We could see the water from our table though. The atmosphere is beautiful. Our server was very good, and the food was outstanding. We each got a different type of salad to start. I got the Seaglass and it was the best salad I ever had. My husband got the Blt salad and he really enjoyed it. The bread basket had olive bread and a few other types of bread. Yum! My husband got shrimp cocktail it was good but at $3 for each shrimp they certainly should be. Both of our meals were delicious. I got sea scallops and my husband got a ribeye. The sides served with the entries were perfect.

    Seaglass is one of my wife’s favorite restaurants. I actually prefer the sister property Capri, but made reservations there to celebrate her and a dear friends birthdays. Great table at the windows as requested. Tremendous service. The meals were all very good; my only issue was the potatoes au gratin served with the lamb were quite under cooked. The other two meals were outstanding according to my wife and her friend. Overall, recommend highly you give it a try.

    4 people, dinner August 30th. If you want a seat by the window, YOU MUST SPECIFY at time of reservation, otherwise be ready for a snooty response from the hostess. This means that if you use OpenTable; you'll never get a nice window seat. Food was very good. Service was o.k.... I was disappointed that when we asked to take leftovers home, Darryl just tossed a takeout box and bag on the table.. "Here you go..." Not exactly 5-stars... Cosmo's were very good as was the house Cab. This could easily be a 4-star restaurant with a little more training.

    Sat by the window, had beautiful view of the ocean. Brunch was very tasty, nice variety of food choices for both breakfast and lunch items. Laid back decor. Waitress checked on us frequently. I had asked for a glass of milk and it never arrived, had to ask again, no apology from waitress for waiting 10+ minutes to receive it. Angry Mary and BloodOrange Mimosas very good. Peach Bellini basically had no peach in it, very disappointed with it. Would go back again for brunch again.

    I brought my mother there for her 89th birthday and she thought it was wonderful, as did I. We had the brunch and the food was hot, fresh, replaced often, and a huge assortment of both breakfast and lunch items. Our plates were removed quickly as well as the silverware so we could get up for more and upon returning to our table, clean silverware. That made a big difference to me! I would highly recommend the Seaglass Restaurant and Lounge! We will be back I'm sure to try the menu offerings!
