Portions very small. Salmon was dry. Not as good as what I remember from previous visits. Asparagus was yummy. Ocean views are awesome , although there were construction vehicles and materials in view from our window table.

every year, as a timeshare owner I am down there once a year, I go to Sea Watch for the Sunset dinner men.
It always has seasonable vegetables, local seafood, and great salads.

I dine on the porch with a few of the ocean and ceiling fans, so relaxing.

Always good service.

Sea Watch is consistently good. The view is spectacular, the restaurant interior is tastefully done and so in keeping with the nautical theme. We sat on the porch with a window seat as requested in our reservation. The sunset dinner menu includes several entrees including New England lobster for $21.95 Soup or salad and dessert included and the portions are generous. Service is outstanding and the owner is always there to insure everything is correct.

Great view, exceptional location, high quality but reasonably priced food. It is worthwhile to drive an hour, as I did, for the treat of having lunch in your restaurant. Just the cobbler desert justifies the trip,

Five of us had a round table in the corner adjacent to the window. Great view. Early bird meal was incredible. Highly recommend. Do order a side of their cornbread - a real treat. Service was also great. Best meal all week and we liked them all.

I had mentioned both in my original reservation via open table and to the front hostess that it was my boyfriends birthday and we will want a vanilla ice cream with a candle as a surprise. Unfortunately our waitress didn’t read the note written on our tab as she brought our ice cream without candle. The ridiculous part was she had been able to accommodate 2 other tables while we were there yet failed to accommodate us. I was sorely disappointed by her lack of eye for detail. Unfortunately due to that we most likely won’t be back to Sea Watch on our next vacation.

As always, I was not disappointed! Great food, great service, and phenomenal location with an ocean view! Dinner at dusk is a true value! It's not always on the menu but if they have the snapper topped with crabmeat, it's a winner!

Outstanding attention and service by entire staff. Fried calamari were perfectly done. Surf and Turf was delicious, fresh, did not skimp on quality nor quality. All requests were met, including corner window table with ocean view. Pre dinner cocktails were delicious, well prepared and delicious.
A great spot for casual dining when in the Lauderdale by the Sea area. Count on my return.

The ambiance was great. The food wasn’t anything special. The service improved throughout the night but I got this feeling like the waitress didn’t want to serve my table. She may have been having a bad night, sure that’s possible, but I will say my table was one seated with people of black descent in a restaurant filled with much fairer skinned persons. She seemed to get impatient with our questions about the menu and our taking time to choose a dish (our first time at the restaurant), and I noted a slight change of demeanor as she visited the table next to us. The view was beautiful, the setup and decor were gorgeous, and the woman who seated us was so pleasant, but service and demeanor of our waitress ruined my experience. This review is 3 stars simply because of how beautiful the restaurant was and how great our greeter was. Like I said, it was my first time, and I will not be going back.

We wanted a table at 6PM but you said nothing available after 5:15. We arrived on time only to find
the dining rooms almost empty and it never did get busy by the time we left. My friend and I each
ordered the steamed lobster. I have eaten that many times but for some reason this time it was not
the best. Service was good. I do not intend to make reservations again using your site. I'll make my
own from now on by calling the restaurant.

Came for Sunday Brunch as a party of eight but only one of us ended up ordering off the brunch menu. Lots of options to chose from with a kids menu too. Reservation for 8 honored promptly and we were comfortably seated with plenty of room and a gorgeous scenic view. Food is a little pricey, but is delicious - especially the spicy bloody mary, salmon BLT, lobster bisque, crab omelette, and kid's macaroni. Interior is a little dated, but panoramic water views are spectacular. Definitely will come back again!
