My wife and I chose the Sea Watch to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary. They did not disappoint! Every part of our experience exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone that is looking for an exceptional dining experience.

It is always a pleasure to have dinner at Seawatch....everything is perfect EXCEPT for this older man who has been playing the boss at the reception desk for many years now.
He never smiles, runs all over the place for no reason and talks very rudely to the reception staff in front of customers.
If he doesn't like his job, he should know what to do. or should be told what to do by the owners.
Thank you,
Josee Bourdon

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.
