This restaurant was awesome. We had a 7pm reservations for my husband's birthday, upon arrival there is an attendant who greets you and opens the door for you, a very nice touch. We had dinner on the patio with a nice ocean breeze as we dined. The ambience was nice and romantic . The server was very friendly and attentive.
Even though the crab has been taken off the menu the food we has was delicious. This was our first dining there and we will be going back.

Celebrated a birthday. We had oysters cold on half shell along with clams on half shell. Delicious. Had Orange Roughy, Seared Scallops and Fish & Chips. All was Excellent. Dessert we had Key Lime Pie & Creme Brule. The Best. Had a table by window with wonderful water views. Servers were exceptional. Had alcoholic beverages. There is real value eating at Sea Watch
Planning another date to go back very soon.

The conch fritters and fish & chips were delicious. My daughters “Diana’s Salad” was a little bland and needed more flavor. Our server, Mallory, was terrific! And the view is always unbeatable.

had the twin lobster tails they were perfect! the appetizers were all very good. The main complaint is their creme brulee, disgusting- filled with Jell-O pudding or some crap. Skip the desserts.

Our calamari app was great, lobster bisque I would pass on. The seafood platter and shrimp and scallop entrees were great. Key lime pie was also great. Our waitress was attentive. We sat on the covered patio which, in hindsight was NOT the greatest idea for September in Florida, the humidity definitely started to get to us by the end of dinner. Noise level was fine, we could talk without shouting across the table. This place, from the outside is deceiving, with it's old wooden boat theme. Inside, the ambience is romantic, if you sit inside. The bottles of wine are marked up a bit too much but, it's what you get dining out in Florida. Will definitely be back and would definitely recommend. If you are celebrating a romantic occasion, ask to be seated inside.

We had the most beautiful lunch at Sea Watch. It was our first time and we were completely blown away by the views of the ocean. Our service was impeccable - a special thank you to Mallory. The conch, orange roughy and key lime pie were all delicious! We can’t wait to go back again.

I used to visit sea watch with my friends in the 70s and decided to go for my 60th birthday. It was beautiful as ever. Only issue was our crude drab rude waitress. She never took a drink order and was just very short and seemed rude. Older lady sept 15 we sat on the deck. I asked for a grasshopper drink and she brought one and it was not as expected it had no icecream and she grabbed the drink as if she was mad and said we do t have icecream and walked away. We were so nice to her and she seemed cold and crabby. But everything else was perfect!!

Very disappointing to see that the menu was so paired down and that the items that were actually left on the menu were so expensive compared to the quality of what came out of the kitchen. I had gotten the combo entrée that had shrimp and lobster in it the lobster was a tail that was maybe 4 ounces then the shrimp was mushy and the vegetables were not crisp at all. Our waiter was fantastic though
