This was a nice dinner date I would recommend this restaurant for a romantic night. The greeter at the front desk was very nice even though we was late. And the waitress was very nice as well. The food was on point...

Have been to Sea Watch many times and always had a great experience. Not much his time. My wife I ordered a top sirloin medium rare and I ordered the paella. My wife’s dinner came or first! She cut into her sirloin and it was purple inside! Waitress took a while to bring my dish. My wife explained to waitress that her sirloin was not cooked. Instead of just taking it back, waitress let’s my wife know that “this is how they cook medium rare here!” My wife requested her to take it back and instead of taking my wife’s plate, she extends a small dish to my wife to place the sirloin on! Now I have my paella and my wife is waiting for her sirloin. We finally speak with a manager and he rectified the situation by taking the sirloin off the bill, but it was returned over cooked.

While we absolutely love the views and old school ambiance the quality of our entrees left something to be desired - we ordered two appetizers 1) fried calamari was overcooked 2) smoked salmon tartine was enjoyable. For the main courses we ordered Fried Shrimp which was bland and tasteless - we were told they were colossal in size (5) but were not big at all and Triggerfish which was ok but not outstanding. The cocktails were the most enjoyable and well made.

I had anticipated going to this restaurant ever since seeing it profiled on Michelle Bernstein's show, "Check Please." All three of her guests rated "Sea Watch" very positively and I would agree the food, service and ambiance are excellent although the portions seem a bit on the small side. Unfortunately, as it was dinner time, we could not appreciate the ocean views which are said to be spectacular. Parking on a Thursday evening was no problem.

The ambiance and meal make this place worth revisiting. We had the Mahi-mahi blackened and it was delicious. Portion size is average but filling and Key Lime pie was outstanding. The waitress was not the most accommodating and friendly, but I would definitely come back to this restaurant.

Very disappointing greeting from the gentlemen up front Sunday. Barked that we were early wanted to know if we wanted to be seated. Waited 30 mins then was asked to sit indoors after requesting deck. Not sure if the issue deck was nearly empty.

My wife and I shared Sea Watch’s delicious calamari. My wife enjoyed a wedge salad. I enjoyed a Caesar salad with anchovies. We shared an order of clams which were great and the Triggerfish which was delicious. We enjoyed a bottle of a reasonably priced Zinfandel. We enjoyed Sea Watch so Friday night that we’re having dinner at Sea Watch tonight.

Sea Watch is a great place for special occasions and great dining. the service is excellent. Jake was our waiter and he was always on top of everything. Even brought over to the table a piece of signature keylime pie for our friend's birthday
Being oceanside, makes it such great dining experience. Great place to take visitors!
The only thing I would suggest is that they have vegan options

I read reviews about SeaWatch which were very good & it was. I am glad I paid attention to someones' review about early dining 5:00-6:00. This was an exceptional meal 3 courses for 25.00$ & it was delicious. The atmosphere was elegant. The staff exceptional. Easy comute from Lauderdale. I would recommend SeaWatch to eveyone.

Usually this place is a 5 star. Our server Natalie needs some honing... She was insinuating that I knew what flavors of vodka they had when she returned to our table after placing an order and they did not have what I requested. Once she brought out cocktails she quickly turned to leave, however we were ready to order...maybe it was her first night and she was nervous. The seafood tower is normally served on a raised rack to accommodate dry ice, looks really cool and for $38 the dry ice is the icing on the cake. No dry ice tonight. When asked where the dry ice was, the response was “they ran out.” Then why serve it on an awkward raised rack that made it difficult? The calamari, delish and crispy, the best salad, something was missing and not up to par. When asked about desserts her less than mediocre response about all the desserts made us decide to go down the street and get ice cream at Kilwins...needed to end this now. No happy birthday wish. Can’t blame her maybe the reservation hostess failed to read the reservation or pass the info on...also, she was half way thru serving the table next to us when she was introducing another waiter taking over for her...when the guests asked how do we handle the tip, her response was, “don’t worry, we’re friends.” I felt like I was in a bad dream...strange, and this place was not at all busy.
