The Sea Watch is a great place. no matter where you are seated, you can see the ocean. the service is always great. And the food, delicious. I know that they are a seafood restaurant, but I would really like to see some good vegan choices on the menu

This place is probably better if you have a table with a view of the ocean, and go early enough to see the sunset. Without the view, the place was ok but nothing to write home about.

We are never disappointed in this wonderful oceanfront restaurant! Terry was a great server and the fresh fish is sooooooo delicious! Save room for dessert - Working Cow Homemade Ice Cream is the most wonderful in the World - especially, Peppermint Stick with hot fudge on the side or you can get it in a Sundae! Make a reservation because it is a very popular place! Love it!

The location and views from this restaurant are fabulous. Service was excellent. They had a very nice wine selection. We enjoyed a bottle of Italian Pino that was very good. I had the Orange Roughy with dill sauce that was cooked perfectly and came with broccoli & carrots that were also cooked just right; just slightly al dente. Finished the meal with Irish coffee that met the high standards of our guests who happened to be visiting from Ireland.

Haven't been to the Sea Watch in many years. Hasn't changed much, still a great location and excellent sea food. We had the orange ruffy and sea scallops. Service from Barb was top notch and we will return again soon.

The restaurant location right on the ocean is great and the tables along the windows offer great views of the beach and ocean. Service is good and fast, and the quality of the food is good. The menu has a good variety of seafood and meat dishes, as well as, a few pasta dishes. It is also nice that they accommodate changes you might want to make to their standard dishes. It also has a nice bar area on the second floor, and a few casual tables outside on the second floor deck, with great views of the beach. Overall, this is a nice restaurant that offers traditional cuisine.

I have been going there for more than 20 years and I have a margarita which is excellent. Also nice wine list. I also always have roast beef. This time I thought the portion was smaller but more importantly the flavor wasn’t up to their usual standard. Also should use real horseradish not cream. The key lime pie was excellent.
All in all it was good not excellent as I had come to expect.
The view on the other hand is lovely. Make a reservation and request a window table...it is worth it!

This is an upscale seafood restaurant which sits right on the beach and commands beautiful ocean views. As befits its name, the restaurant has a nice variety of fish offerings. We had the stone crab appetizer which was excellent. That was followed by two very tasty entrees - pasta with goat cheese and tomatoes and grilled fresh grouper. Both of these are highly recommended. As mentioned, the restaurant affords beautiful ocean views from almost every table. The service is very good and there is a decent wine and cocktail selection. The menu is a little pricey but considering the ambience, quality of the food and the service, it is worth a splurge. One tip - go on Wednesday evenings. All wines are 50% off.

Delicious food and full bar on the beach. If you get there before sunset you can look out at the ocean and watch the boats go by. Plenty of parking including valet. One of the few south Florida restaurants that has been around for many years.

I have been fortunate to have dined at the Sea Watch for over 50 years. As an adult I have I taken out of town guests to Sea Watch 2-3 times a year.

Sea Watch is on the beach so, it offers some very nice views if you can get a table near a window.

The staff was nice.

Overall the food was OK, not great.

Clam chowder was delicious! Lobster bisque was tasty!

Lobster roll was a huge disappointment - contained only finely minced claw meat in a roll smaller than average/typical size of a "typical" New England" roll. Ugh!

Requested "hot chocolate" - was advised they didn't have it! Really, on a very cold day in FL, no one on the staff could have run to Publix to buy ingredients for hot chocolate?! Just heat up chocolate milk and spritz canned whipped cream on top?!

Doubt I'll return as I prefer to patronize local establishments that appreciate local patrons.
