Great place to go for seafood. Prices a little high but its season. Waiters are just order takers. No personality whatever. Food was ok but nothing special. Trigger fish looked and tasted like tilapia...$29.

Waitress was adequate some of the time and lacking the rest of the time. Never refilled water. Plopped salads down on table in wrong place and was walking away when we said it was wrong. It took over 30 minutes from salad to entree served. Prices have increased over the last few years but portions have decreased.

We enjoyed a fine lunch at Sea Watch. Our Crab Melt and blackened mahi mahi sandwich were excellent. We sat on the outdoor deck with wonderful ocean views. Service was attentive and friendly. We love Sea Watch.

This restaurant was great! I saw the 5 star rating online and decided to give them a try. Took my wife for her birthday dinner and she loved it.

The seafood at Seawatch was wonderful. Both the paella and the bouillabaisse.
Also a surf 'n' turf one of us got. Reservation was honored very timely and we had a great seat.
One complaint--like most Florida restaurants-a bit too air-conditioned.

Completely underwhelmed to say the least. Has changed significantly in the last 5 to 10 years.

Use to be a place where you felt welcomed, not rushed, received excellent food for a good value. Not any longer. We felt as if it is now a food factorty. Get them in, get them out, seat the next guest.

While the appetizer were very good and a very large portion, the entrees were the small, overpriced, and quite honesly, not that good.

We are never disappointed with our meals. Great seafood! Wish we could reserve between 6-8:00. Not able to do that online.

Paella was great. The steak was not very good. The place could really use some updating. It’s really old looking and could use some new chairs and a way to take better advantage of the views. It needs a major facelift

Good food, friendly servers but the noise level is very high. For this reason it is not good for a big group.

This is my second time dining at Sea Watch and both visits were delightful. I had lunch on the upstairs porch overlooking the ocean while discussing business with a long time customer. I had dinner with my family and friends on a crowded Saturday evening. We had a dinner reservation and they seated us as soon as we walked in the door a few minutes early. There were a bunch of people waiting for a table so I would recommend a reservation for sure. Excellent beach dining place!

A very nice place to eat. Nice ambience and seafood was excellent. I think their menu could be a bit larger but the quality of food, top to bottom was great.

We never miss visiting Sea Watch for dinner when vacationing in Pompano Beach. We love the food, the friendly wait staff who seem to love working at Sea Watch as much as we loving patronizing it, and the beautiful ocean view. See you next time!

The food, service, and views were outstanding. Make sure you try their Corn Bread.

I'd also like to complement their manager Jeanette. She was simply the best possible hostess one could ask for.
