We had friends in from Paris, and wanted to take them to an American restaurant, with good food and a nice view. We were placed in a round table at the window where our friends enjoyed the view of the ocean. The dishes were all well prepared, and we had a very nice evening.

I usually come to Sea Watch for outdoor lunches and they are always fun. This time, however, was my sister's birthday. The staff did everything to make our occasion memorable, starting from the choice of a table, the view, etc. The food was very nice and the service excellent.
I highly recommend it this place.

The food was great and our server, Robin, was perfect. Always there when we needed her but not overbearing or hovering. The manager sat us at a wonderful corner table overlooking the ocean. Can't wait to come back.

Although I enjoyed the view and atmosphere of the restaurant, the food left much to be desired. I ordered the sirloin and grilled shrimp. The steak tasted better without the recommended sauce, the vegetables were warm and under-seasoned, the shrimp were just OK, and for the price, the steak was much too small. My friends did not care for their meals either. For the price, we expected more from our experience. I would not return.

I used to come to the Sea watch while at the Native Sun time share but stopped coming a few years ago after the sea faring atmosphere changed and my favourite prime rib meal changed to a la carte for the same price. I did not like the plastic feel of the new decor and felt the ambiance and good value had gone. I seem to remember more red chairs than now but I could be wrong - I felt less " too much change in my face" this time.
This year with other family members staying with me I was convinced to give SW another try.
I like the reservation system - hated the huge line ups waiting for a table years ago to I liked sitting under the Miss Caroline sign lol!

I had my prime rib with veggies and potato - one price :o)
Service was great too.

So I will be back next year.
Thanks for asking,

Valerie Carpentier

Service was good but food was very average, if not below average. Very over priced for the quality of the food. The view was very nice. Would consider coming for drinks but not food.

After making a reservation on Open table we were disappointed when we arrived and still had to wait. This wouldn’t have been an issue but the hostess was very rude and condescending. It was great once we were seated. The view was phenomenal and the food was delicious and not overly priced. Our waitress , Natalia, was attentive as possible considering it was a busy Friday evening and was also very courteous and knowledgeable about our dinner choices!

I have been going to the Sea Watch on special occasions since the 70's mainly because my mother was so fond of it. The food is fair and really needs to be updated. I wouldn't mind the price since the venue is so pretty and realize the prices reflect the location but the food is not memorable

Sea Watch is great. We were there with friends and celebrating my birthday. The food was delicious and each of us had something different. We had outstanding service from our favorite server Robin, and her team, and a terrific table where we could see the sand dunes and the ocean. I am anxiously awaiting our next time there as it is great. You will not be disappointed.

I have been to this restaurant many times over the years. Unfortunately, it is a hit or miss place. Sunday was a miss. Food was bland and had no taste. I ordered the crab cake for an appetizer and I felt it should have been cooked more thoroughly. Seemed a bit undercooked in the middle. My husband ordered the oysters, which he said were not great. Other times we have been here, he has ordered the oysters and was very pleased.
Our main courses were tasteless and bland. The same with the mashed potatoes.
I hesitate returning because it seems to be a ongoing thing with the meals. We either walk out saying our meal was delicious or not good at all.
Disappointing since this is not an inexpensive place to dine.

This uniquely located spot on a private Atlantic Beach offers some of the best natural Ocean views anywhere in the state of FL.
Their speciality is seafood but there's something for everyone. The staff is very friendly; the atmosphere relaxed.
The food is tasty: good to very good. It is not gourmet dining and is not intended to be so. It's a laid back family restaurant where the food is fine, your family's and friends' company the focus, and the most beautiful seaside setting in South Florida. The setting makes the place a "go out of your way destination at least once!" ENJOY
