I found this place on line and we went for a date night. Great choice. We had reservations, but I explained we were early and in no rush, but the owner - also the greeter - said he'd check if a table was available and get us in asap. He did we were seated in about 10 minutes. It's a really cool place. You could say romantic, cozy, fun, quaint, many adjectives fit. Service was great. Food was almost excellent. Great place.

The entire staff at 18 Seaboard is wonderful. The food, however, was delivered cold to the entire table. In a extreme contrast it was so hot inside the restaurant I had to take off my sweater to keep from roasting.

We love this restaurant. The menu changes very often. The items on the menu are different from your average American restaurant. They take ordinary items and make unusual and very, very tasty dishes. The service is great. For a little something different, this is the place to go.

The food was good. This was my second time eating at this restaurant. I had catfish this time with spinach and there was some grit cakes on the plate also. The spinach was the best part. The grit cakes were pretty nasty but the catfish was good. I do recommend this place.
