We had a wonderful dinner at Sea Watch for my father-in-law’s 60th birthday. The staff was so helpful in working with us to surprise him with a couple of unexpected guests. All the food was delicious, from the conch fritters to the birthday boy’s slice of key lime pie. Thank you for a perfect evening!

Had a wonderful dinner with friends. Beautiful location even though it was pouring rain☔️. Some our food was a little heavy with the garlic but otherwise good. Love Sea Watch for lunch, too.

We came here last year and it was great so when we came back to Ft. Lauderdale we came back again. We asked for a table with an ocean view and we had a great booth with an ocean view. My wife loved it and so did I ! The drink specials at the bar are a great bargain also

Warm and comfortable on a very cool Florida night. Great bouillabaisse, filled with fresh fish. Service with a big smile.

We enjoyed our lunch at Sea Watch. Our table was ready upon arrival, in a nice corner with a beautiful view of the ocean. Lobster bisque was one of the best we have ever tasted. Our meals were delicious. The angel hair pasta with shrimp was light and tasty. The fried seafood platter was lightly breaded and so moist. We topped the meal off by sharing the key lime pie. Everything was perfect!!

I would recommend this establishment for it's lovely setting at the beach. I had fried shrimp and didn't think the batter was very flavorful. My husband had the sirloin and he said it was tasty but nothing special. I'm glad we went once but probably wouldn't go back again while on vacation here.

My husband & I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Sea Watch last night. Started with shrimp cocktail & stone crabs. Delicious. We both ordered the steak & lobster for our entree. The steak was cooked perfectly & the lobster was delicious. Also enjoyed some nice wine. No dessert. We will return sooner than later!

Went here for the first time. My husband and I had brunch for our anniversary. Very nice staff, pretty views and nice ambiance. I had a crab omelette and a Bloody Mary. Both were delish. My husband had the grilled Mahi Mahi sandwich which he loved. I would recommend. I’d love to have my parents 50th Anniversary party there if it’s available for events. That’s not for 2 more years though.

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.

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.
