We have family here for their Spring Break/family vacation. S/Watch is a favorite for them. We all enjoyed. It was sad to see empty tables, I am sure as a result of the Virus Anxiety. Let's hope this all ends quickly.
The food was great, the service while adequate, could have been better.
Always a pleasure when in Lauderdale by the Sea!
As usual, food was great and service so-so...
Beautiful restaurant with great views of the ocean. Food was pretty good but not great. For the price, I expected bolder flavors. Service was fast and attentive. Overall I liked it but if beware that the food is a bit on the blander side.
This was a strange experience. We were celebrating our 12th anniversary and when we got to the restaurant we were early for our reservation so we decided to go upstairs to the bar to have a drink. I went to the restroom while my husband went upstairs. He told me that he started to sit down at two seats at the bar and a frantic woman came up telling him she was saving those seats and asked him not to sit down. The bartender came over and looked as if he had no idea what the woman was talking about. My husband said he was taking the seats. The lady asked him if he could move down a seat to a single chair around the corner of the bar and he told her no because he needed two seats. She seemed annoyed and walked away. When our pager went off because our table was ready. We went downstairs and the same woman was behind the hostess stand ready to seat us! We were very surprised to see this. Since when do hostesses save seats at the bar? Seemed like a case of “let’s make sure our regulars are taken care of” to us. Our dinner felt very rushed. The food was average and overpriced for the quality. My steak was very tough. The waitress started to take my wine glass away with wine still in it. I would not return to this restaurant.
Great views and the food was good. Except one serving of grilled shrimp was overcooked - was fine when replaced.
We ate here for the first time last night. Overall a very nice, upscale restaurant. We started with the crabcake, which might have been the best I've ever had. The calamari was pretty standard. My orange roughy was well made with fresh veggies. My son found his lobster overdone and chewy and my wifes clamchowder had a smoky, almost burnt taste that I found unusual. Anna did a great job as our server. A very nice oceanfront restaurant.
Everything was great!! Would love to return someday!!
Our waitress was extremely rude and disinterested in being there. It’s almost as if she was annoyed by our questions and wanted nothing to do with the table. Food was pretty good but this lady ruined our night.
Although the food was good, portion very small for the price.
Unbeatable oceanfront location. Very busy this time of year.
Food took very long time to come out.
I was there with my college sorority sisters for an annual reunion lunch (Class of 1963). We were 5 this year. We were given a lovely round table by the window, as requested. The food was superb, as usual. The wait staff was extremely accommodating. Special requests were honored and we were not rushed. Our waitress even took a group picture for us! We will be back again next year!
Great food! Even better atmosphere!! Great happy hour specials $3-6 for great drinks, and amazing apps <$10!!
I had a pound of stone crab. My wife had a scallop and sirloin platter. Both were excellent Service was prompt and attentive. Ambience was lovely. Would recommend highly.
Charming place. Great food, very good service. Beautiful view on the ocean. We will return.
Maho mahi quality was poor. Brought it home for the dog.
Love the atmosphere.
Dessert was great
Food was amazing! Expensive but worth it would definitely go back again
We got an early reservation on open table. Good thing. Within 20 minutes of our 5 pm reservation, the placed was packed. We had the tuna, avocado sea weed tartare for our appetizer. Wonderful. I had the house green salad with the house vinaigrette dressing. My husband had the lobster bisque and enjoyed it. My husband had the sea watch special and I had the salmon, both were very good.
The sea food was great. The steaks were not as good. Great service both in the bar and restaurant.
We have been dining at Sea Watch on our Florida vacations since 1975. I always order Orange Roughy, excellent.
Sea Watch is a great Restaurant, Service and food are good. We have the opportunity to meet Janice, she is the best. Thanks so much Joamir
The only negative was the crowd around the hostess station when we arrived. People don't have the manners to move out of the way, so we could follow the hostess to our table.
Alex, our waiter was fantastic, very professional and friendly. The food was excellent.
Lots of great food selections, both seafood and meat. Excellent views with multi level dining. Feels like you are definitely away from the hotels landscape. Would recommend the orange roughy and fried shrimp.
Loved everything.. red snapper , salmon and blackened mahi mahi all excellent!
