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.

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

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!

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.

I was expected more, the food was good not fabulous. I hated that we had to wait for all of us to be present so we could be seated , everybody waiting in a really really small place. When we left, we could hardly walk out, again everybody waiting to be seated for the second service, while we were trying to get out. Friends went two days later and said exactly the same thing, we will not go back. Need to mention the service at our table was great.

Awesome Valentine's Day! Got an early seating to enjoy the sunset (Eastern) and enjoy the natural beach setting. Food was awesome and prices were not jacked up for VD. Even had a bottle of wine for 1/2 price. Couldn't have been more pleased.

From the moment we walked in, we weren't feeling this place. The woman checking us in was clearly annoyed with another employee. From there, we were rushed through a mediocre dinner, in a setting that needed an update. Overall, seemed like this restaurant has seen it's better days.
