I've been going to the Sea Watch for a very long time and the food is not what it used to be. It's over priced for the quality of food. Location is lovely but food nothing special.

Another great experience at Sea Watch, one of our local favorites. The service was excellent, as was the food. And you can’t beat sitting out back with the windows raised on a beautiful South Florida evening!

It's and overpriced tourist trap. Quality and presentation of food was poor. Only good element of this restaurant was the view of the Atlantic Ocean.

The service was great! Very friendly and prompt service. The food was disappointing. My shrimp was overcooked. Scallops very small, but prepared well. Calamari was tough. Lobster bisque had a burnt taste.

A great place on the water to meet a friend for lunch. The food and service are consistently good and they have a nice selection of wines as well as a full bar. I prefer a table on the open air/covered porch overlooking the sand dune and beach to one in the air conditioned space. Valet service is available if you wish.

More of a mill than a fine restaurant. Portions small with average food and elevated prices. A disappointment.

Everything would have been lovely for us and for the table next to us, but for the LOUD group of men, acting like uncouth high school football teammates, talking at the top of their lungs throughout the evening.

The diners at the other table exchange glances, then opinions with us, at the terribly inconsiderate manners of the people at the far table.

The restaurant of course did nothing.

Now it is true that this was an unusual occurance at Sea Watch. Normally the clientelle kow how to comport themselves when dining out. This was an outlier incident, and most unfortunate--especially for our guest who drove all the way up from Coral Gables (one and a half hours on I-95) only to have to spend an unfortunate evening trying to "catch up" with old friends.

Had I been the manager, I would have asked those men to tone it down in consideration of the other diners.

The ocean was frothing and the kite surfers made the ambiance spectacular. Sea Watch is always a class act. I use Open Table quite a lot and they seat you promptly. The lobster bisque was thick and tasty. Tried the seafood salad and my wife had the salmon. Honestly I never had a bad meal here. That’s why we travel from Boynton Beach.

Seawatch is a nice seafood restaurant that has been around forever. I ordered the lobster tail with scallops which was very good however a little too much with the butter sauce. The conch fritter appetizer was average. The server Seth was very nice. I went in the evening however I do prefer to goWhen you can actually see the view of the beach in the water. Otherwise it’s a nice place to stop in twice a year for seafood.

The view during the daylight hours is perfect. The food (crab tostada salad, french onion soup, fried calamari) was excellent. Our server was doing us a favor if you know what I mean but even with that the experience was great. Had not been here in a while but this place is still top notch.

wir waren schon öfter in diesem Restaurant. Die Reservierung hatte ich vor 2 Monaten gemacht!!!
Unser Tisch sollte der in einem Nebenraum sein, dort war es ungemütlich und sehr laut
und wirklich nicht schön. Wir fragten nach einem anderen Tisch, aber man sagte uns,
es wäre kein anderer mehr frei.
Ok, wir beschlossen dann zu gehen, sie da, man bat uns einen anderen Tisch an, der auch sehr
schön war, mit dem Essen und der Service waren wir sehr zufrieden.

Each person at the table had a different dish and all agreed the food was delicious. It is too bad the noise level was so high we could not have a conversation. I would recommend this restaurant to someone who has an extremely high tolerance for noise. Otherwise look elsewhere.

Beautiful setting and good food but even though we had very young children at our table it took over an hour to get our meal. Air conditioning was was too cold as well.

Food was delicious but small portions. Bread was not served hot. It wasn't anything special. Great atmosphere and the ocean view. A little pricey for what you get.

Good choice of real sea food. Noisy and service is average. My plate was not too well cook due to a poor preparation of scallops. My spouse tuna tartare was so spicy that you could worry about freshness. However no issue.
