The salad was fresh with a light vinaigrette dressing. Very tasty. We all enjoyed the swordfish, orange roughy and the salmon! All were prepared very well. Only one choice for a vegetable side and my husband does not eat asparagus so I got extra but other than that it was good. Coffee after dinner was not fresh but was free because of that and the grain bread was amazing! We will be back!

First time I tried this restaurant was for brunch and I was disappointed. We ordered shrimp cocktail for $16 and got 4 shrimp. The all American breakfast was really basic (Denny's does better stuff). The view was the only good thing and the atmosphere (you feel like in a old ship at sea).

Ocean views. I had the club which was the best club I have ever had. Only complaint is that there was clearly a beach access but then a sign saying that there was no beach access behind the restaurant. Would have been nice to go out on the beach after eating. Had prompt service and was seated on time. Would have liked to see more non-seafood options.

Sea Watch has a fabulous location and rich history, but is clearly losing its way in current times. Oddly, for a premier seafood restaurant in Ft Lauderdale, their offerings of fresh local fish is extremely limited. Sorry to say, but I won’t be back, too many better options.

Exceptional view, ambiance is amazing and very romantic! Our meal was delicious! Just make sure you check your bill before paying, it was very busy and we ended up with 2 items on our bill we had not ordered. Our waiter was very gracious and apologized, took it off immediately! It’s our go to place when we are in the area! Highly recommend!

Beautiful restaurant. We had a window seat overlooking the ocean, and watched a wedding taking place at Seawatch-bonus!
The service was great. The wedge salad was delicious and the portion was enough to split. My husband ordered the Ocean platter $39.00 and I had the bouillabaisse. They were both good, but the portions were small for the price.

Went here for my partners birthday, it is a beautiful restaurant with really lovely floor to ceiling windows and a nice calm ambience. The food was great- I had the swordfish and really enjoyed it,
One area for improvement was that they didn’t bring candles or anything special for my partners birthday even though they asked ahead if it was a special occasion and I let them know,
Overall a lovely experience though

Very nice for a Sunday Brunch. Staff was considerate, but not hovering. Lovely large windows on the patio let in lots of fresh air, so it did not feel like you were sitting inside. Food arrived quickly and hot. One of the few places that will take a lunch reservation in the area.

We had brunch after church service for 5 ppl. Called to change arrival time up 30 minutes and was taken care of. No waiting for table, a nice corner table for 5 facing out toward the ocean. Server was nice, attentive. Food was good, all prepared correctly. Second time at restaurant.

Service was excellent— very attentive. Onion soup was very good — big & lots of cheese. We had the Lobster surf & turf and Special Seafood Medley. Seafood medley sauce was delicious — shrimp, scallops & lobster tail were cooked perfectly. Filet mignon was a perfect medium. Too full for dessert but couldn’t pass up the key lime pie that people rave about — so took a piece home & enjoyed it later. An enjoyable anniversary dinner.

We went back after about 4 years, and we were hoping that it would be as good as it was the last time we were there. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent, the service was attentive without being overbearing, and the view was spectacular. Dinner is not cheap, but it's a great place to go for a special occasion or to show out of Towner's the best that South Florida has to offer.
