We vacation in Fort Lauderdale every year. My husband’s family was from that area since 1970. We always used to go to Sea Watch every time we visited there. This stairs the plates were smaller in portions were much smaller than previous visits.

Food was excellent. We had a very nice table in the corner by the windows with a view of the ocean. Our server was very nice just seemed to be a little overwhelmed. However we absolutely enjoyed our experience and would come again when we are in town again. Thanks!

Typical old school seafood restaurant - you are 100% paying for the view - food was mediocre at best - restaurant is loud - I am disappointed I wasted my one night in Fort Lauderdale when I'm sure there were other places that would have had a great view and food to match

It was for my birthday. However the salad I ordered wasn’t the best. I usually get the crab tostadas but those weren’t on the menu for dinner. Was a little disappointed. The corn muffin was amazing though!

We love this place, visiting once a year when we come down to see my dad. Surprisingly, he was against going this year as last year the food was not all that great and he had heard from friends that this was not an anomaly. However, I insisted as we have had some nice times there with our young family and have made some nice memories. This time around we sat in the front, airy room which was miles better than the back room we sat in last year. The martinis were top notch memorable...great start. The appetizers and salads were also very good and enjoyable. Our waitress, while absolutely slammed, did a really nice job. We were there to dine, not eat as quickly as possible. Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed my meal of Triggerfish Schnitzel and the rest of my meal. In fact, we all have a very nice time. It wasn’t until this morning that I learned everyone else’s meal was not nearly hot and the shrimp, in particular, was overly done. This said, I will push to come again next year. You cannot beat the view and we love a tradition!

Everything about Sea Watch was just fair. Upon entering they were going to sit us at a table no where near a window( which is what I requested) , they did accommodate us after shuffling us around to three different tables. The waitress was good, but they need trained bus boys to help her, getting water refills was a task.
We all ordered the onion soup and two of them came out looking great, the other 2 had no melted cheese on top and looked less than appetizing. The waiter acknowledged the lack of presentation ( one would think she shouldn’t have brought it out that way to begin with. Unfortunately, it was bland and tasteless. The main dishes were ok, 2 of us had the bouillabaisse ( the fish in it was rubbery and over cooked, the rest was good. The scallop and shrimp were ok and the fried fish was good. $7.00 for a baked potato is a little outrageous, the mushroom side dish was oily. The four of us were less than impressed and skipped dessert there.

False advertising on their website. Dinner at dusk advertised yet not available until May. No note of this date on the website. I guess the idea is to get the customers there and then sock it to them at a cost of 3 x the advertised Dinner at Dusk price. also, the waitress was rude and condescending when I questioned her about the Dinner and dusk menu. Basically said to read the dates. Guess what, No Dates on the website. When I went home and discovered this, I wrote the management. Guess what, No response. Guess what, I won't step foot in that place again. Oh , and the food, is lackluster to say the least.

My brother, sister-in-law and I had a delightful meal at Sea Watch on Thursday night. We all raved about our appetizers as well as entrees. The fish was extraordinarily fresh and beautifully prepared. Even the fruit cobbler for dessert was scrumptious!

Sea Watch is in a beautiful setting with a reasonable variety of dishes at different prices. Not overly luxe but can be if you order that way. We have been frequently and always enjoy it.

Restaurant is great , we have eaten there before.
Very disappointed with the level of service from the waiter,we were party of 4 , my chowder came at least 10 minutes before the rest of the group received their appetizer.
Half way thru the meal I had to ask for bread,
He did not offer more drinks . It really makes a difference when you have attentive staff

We went to Sea Watch for our anniversary, which we made sure to mention, but we’re sat in one of the noisiest sections of the restaurant. The biggest issue however was the food. My steak was completely unseasoned and far too tough to eat. The scallops were barely seared and tasted more like cold play doh than scallops. My husband’s dinner entree was at least edible. Thankfully the server was kind and professional which is what saves this rating a tiny bit.

The restaurant is beautiful and the views of the ocean spectacular. Although our waiter was good, I felt he was rushed and therefore I felt rushed at times. The food was good but not great. I had higher expectations for the cuisine. Lots of parking and complimentary valet parking is nice touch.

Not the best beginning. We arrived half hour early. The older gentleman who greeted us reprimanded us lol. We headed upstairs to the bar to enjoy a cocktail while we waited. The place has a supper club feel to it. Loved that windows were open to enjoy outside air on 2nd floor. Very tropical feeling vs frigid air conditioning on main floor. Food was good, not great. I had scallops which seemed sweeter than normal. Same with the broccoli. As if they used sugar instead of salt. Enjoyed a side of cheesy Mac & cheese. The view is fabulous! Would recommend for view and ambiance and a decent meal.

We were in the area for a break from the northern weather and having seen SEA WATCH many years earlier thought it might be a good place for a birthday outing for my wife. "Good'...?? ..it was outstanding in every aspect for an evening of celebration. Our server was excellent - a young lady of Russian descent whose name I cannot spell - and she was gracious and courteous.
The meal was superb as was the wine from a great selection that was available.
