As a returning customer I had mixed feelings this time around. Since we arrived early, we decided to go to bar and have some drinks before dinner. There was no available bar stools when we got to the bar, so we decided to order drinks while standing and wait until stools became available. They had 2 bartenders (a woman and a man) at the bar. We had to ask for drinks twice- first to the male bartender and then to the female. When stools became available, the female bartender told us that we couldn't seat there because the stools were already reserved for someone else. Since other stools became available immediately we decided to not question her comments about reserving a bar space, and sat on other stools. While waiting at the bar to be called for our dinner table (45 mins) we never saw anyone seat at "the reserved" seats, another group of people came after us, sat on some empty stools next to us, and since they needed an extra stool, they grabbed one of "the reserved" stools. The female bartender didn't tell them anything about the reserved seats, which made us very upset. When our dinner table bacame available, we paid our bar tab and told the female bartender about her very bad customer service. She did not give any type of apology for the incident, she told us that the people had move to another bar area; we told her she shouldn't lie because no one ever sat on "the reserved" stools

We love the restaurant and have been there a few times. The food is great. The only negative was that the room we were in was noisy.

I’m a regular Sunday brunch patron and we always sit upstairs and outside. A wedding was held 2/9 during brunch unfortunately (perceived) pulling restaurant staff to accommodate the wedding. Service was really off today. I hope for special occasions, restaurant management would schedule extra staff. Plus the bar was out of the beer I prefer, how does that happen at an upscale restaurant?

Sliced sirloin steak was a small size. Maybe 6 oz and over priced. Disappointed.

The food was delicious. The service great. I went there with friends who were visiting from out of town. We talked a lot and were never rushed by the server. I can highly recommend the place, even for big gatherings.

Beautiful location and interior. The food and service were as great as our view of the ocean. Highly recommend the scallops and the Mahi-mahi. Can’t go wrong with the conch fritters or key lime pie. Ok, it’s all great. The cocktails were well prepared and wine by the glass was well priced. I can’t find a thing to complain about except that we live in Ohio! Thank you! Great evening.

The food was good but seasonings on most items need an upgrade. Some flavours have no distinction or herb infusion. We received good service but there was too much noise, banging, plate dropping etc at a nearby food station. It seemed they just rush & dispose instead of being respectful of the diners.

We had a great time at SeaWatch. We celebrated our anniversary and we had a nice table with Black napkins and a corner window table. Was the best. The whole staff was great. After we got Married we had a small celebration at Sea Watch and came back for our Anniversary. We will do it again and again......
