The food was ok. We did have very good service and the views are very nice. But we were a little disappointed in the food overall.

The lobster and filet were outstanding. Their prices were extremely fair and reasonable. Was thinking about going back again the second night, it was really that good. We came at sunset and were stunned by the view. Our waiter was quick, friendly and attentive. Will absolutely be back next time we are down!

We had a very enjoyable brunch. We were a party of 12 and the service was excellent. We had a table with a beautiful view of the ocean. The food was excellent and well priced. We look forward to our next visit.

My wife and I celebrated our 50th anniversary at Seawatch.A wonderful evening.Beautiful view of the ocean,love the old Florida ambiance.Food was very good and a good bang for the buck.If there is one down side is that it is a bit noisy but then again it’s hard to find a good restaurant that isn’t.Will definitely return.

Very disappointed that prime rib has been taken off the menu.

The cut sirloin I ordered was dry and tough as nails. Not s great substitute for prime rib.

Need to do a refresh on the menu it’s getting stale for the regulars.

Everything was great. However, My lobster was slightly over cooked; hence, a little chewy. My husband’s asparagus was woody by the root ends. Overall, we enjoyed it all for our anniversary dinner!

Atmosphere is awesome. A ski chalet on the ocean! Service is great and the food is amazing. A great value if you take advantage of Dinner at Dusk. I had seafood combo which was broiled mahi-mahi, 4 scallops and 3 shrimp. Roasted veggies and small potatoes. Appetizer was New England clam chowder and dessert was key lime pie. Will be back!

Being from Texas we weren't sure what to expect. We made reservations online. When we arrived we were immediately seated. Service was great. The Swordfish and the Lobster were attractively prepared and very tasty. The Key Lime pie was perfect after dinner. And the view from the patio was a perfect setting. 2 thumbs up!

Birthday party dinner. Did Happy Hour 4:30-5:15 with 5:15 dinner reservation for Dusk special. Bar service was great with a good selection of discount drink specials.
Dinner seating provided excellent ocean water views with a clear sky.
Table service was great and not rushed. The conch chowder was very good and another said their NE clam chowder was very good.
Food was perfectly cooked and grilled .
Key lime pie always a great choice with coffee or tea which was included in the fixed price.

The entire Sea Watch experience lived up to my greatest expectations! The server Kelsey was superb: knowledgeable, helpful, attentive and not intrusive. We had a lovely, panoramic view of the ocean. Each course was flavorful & scrumptious: the salmon appetizer was a particularly tastebuds-titillating bite. The chef & culinary team deserve high praise: from the grouper to the crispy shrimp and sliced sirloin, no complaints. The salads all fresh & cold. From creme brûlée to key lime pie - superb. The two children & I loved peppermint stick ice cream w/ hot fudge sundaes! The hostesses were smiling. Everyone seemed to appreciate our being there. No regrets!

We went for a birthday celebration, group of seven, at the Dining at Dusk 5PM. Because of the value and the short window of time, everyone arrives at the same time, putting a real crunch on the serving staff, still they are well organized and efficient, just not quite as available for refills, etc. as they might be at other times. One of our party found it easier to go to the bar for a drink than to wait for our server. Everything else was terrific, they even brought out a complimentary extra dessert for the birthday celebrant. We enjoyed our evening very much and will definitely return. I do wish there were a few more options for persons who have a shellfish allergy, there was only one fish and one beef choice, and as appetizer only a salad. I realize it is a seafood restaurant but maybe another soup choice and chicken entree?

Love the location - great view from every seat. Service was outstanding. We enjoyed our dinner, and would return. For me - it is about the ambiance, and the food is good - perhaps offer a few specials that are a little more "gourmet"???

I have been coming to this restaurant since 1982! Not an exaggeration, this is my favorite restaurant in the world-- and I have travelled all over. The manager, and other staff members have been here for 30+ years. The service is fantastic, and the ambience and views are out of this world. The food is delicious, even though it doesn't need to be. I hope you all enjoy Sea Watch as much as my family and I do!

The food was very good, the service was great. My associate and I were able to enjoy our meals without too many interruptions; but at the same time, the servers kept our water glasses full, cleared the table quickly and was right on time when we were ready to refresh our cocktails.
