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

They have a limited menu due to supply issues but the food was excellent as always. Our server said they hope to have a full menu in the near future.

We love the Sea Watch and go every time we’re in town. We love sitting on the porch as you’re so close to the ocean and it’s a nice atmosphere. The food and service have always been excellent on every visit and the prices are quite reasonable. We always look forward to coming back.

Seated at a very nice table, and the restaurant was not very busy so we had a lovely experience. Disappointed when the server brought the check without requesting it - I guess she wanted to go home?

We felt abandoned by service person. Huge long waits between her appearance for drinks, taking order, etc. The music was loud and Weird Science just was not appropriate music for this level restaurant. The food was good but the steak which cost over $50 was not rare as requested but we didn’t send it back because it would have taken too long to replace. Just really slow, poor service. We would not return.

Everything is was perfect! Service was spot on and very attentive. The food was hot, fresh, and portions were good. We had blackened mahi-mahi (less the beautiful relish due to a food allergy) and the bouillabaisse. There were giant pieces in the bouillabaisse including half of a lobster tail. My guy is very picky and he was very satisfied! I forgot to take a pic of the creme brûlée- don’t forget to save room for this homemade deliciousness!!!

Service and view were great. Food has gone downhill. Stinks because it’s a family tradition. It’s not inexpensive and the food just was not good.
