A pleasant evening. We were seated promptly. Our server was kind and handled our order with ease. Bread is tasty. Caesar salad was good, dressing was ordinary. Portions were good. Grouper was tasty. Angel hair pasta was a bit too garlicky for my taste, and I’m Italian. Could be toned back a little on the heat. Quiet and pleasant night.

Beautiful view despite wet weather and a bit windy ( we needed to close the windows by our tables). The fish was ok and the steak was very good. I was a little disappointed by the chowders. However the Key Lime Pie rocked....so said the Pastry Chef wife.
Service was great and the place very unique. It felt as if you were at a luxury spot on the beach without civilization all around. Great spot and a building designed for a grand view. Drinks and bar service excellent while we waited for the dusk dinner service to begin ( a value price fix meal).

We come here twice a year (every time we’re in Ft. Lauderdale). We LOVE the bouillabaisse and the big seafood plate. Desserts are so-so. But the appetizers (especially the oysters), drinks and main course are why we come and will keep coming.

Our server was ok. The clams in the clams chowder were not properly cleaned and still had sand in them. The scallops with dinner were undercooked and still had the side muscle attached to them. The best part was dessert. Key lime pie and crème brûlée were the only good part of this meal. Will not be going back to this restaurant unfortunately.

Sea Watch has the views, and the dinner at dusk promotion is is good value. Our service staff was efficient and friendly, yet we left feeling unsatisfied because of the rushed service. Our party of 4 was seated and served the 3 course meal with wine in less than 1 hour. We barely lifted the last spoonful of soup when the dish was whisked away and the mail course laid before us. The feeling was one of an assembly line process that makes it very unlikely we will return in future. Certainly not for this particular promotion.

Whenever we’re in South Florida, Seawatch is a “must visit”!! We love the setting, the variety on the menu, the delicious food, and the outstanding service. You are celebrating 45 years, and I’m happy to say I was there the year it opened!! Delicious then ..... and delicious now!!! Well done👍

My husband and I went to Sea watch restaurant while visiting Lauderdale-by-the-Sea as it was rated highly on some reviews. The food was very good but the gentleman at the reception couldn’t find our reservation and was quite curt with us. Then one of the girls found it and seated us right away. Our waitress seemed distracted and paid us no attention. We flagged down another waiter for parmesan cheese. Pasta with shrimp was excellent as was the calamari. The fresh oysters were not quite that fresh.
Setting is very nice and we would go back again.

This was our third visit to Sea Watch Restaurant. The food is always good and you can't beat the views. Service us pretty good but be prepared to wait if they are very busy which was our experience when we at there in the evening. Recommended to get together with family, friends , or a date night.
