    Our server, CJ, was awesome, very attentive, had helpful suggestions, and made sure everything was to our liking. The atmosphere is very nice, nautical as expected. We sat inside because it was rainy weather on & off, but the windows were open and we had a beautiful view of the river. Food: the Mac & cheese was good but the sauce could have used maybe 1 additional sharp type of cheese to amp up the flavor. The whole lobster was pretty good, but the roasted vegetables were unevenly cooked. Specifically the purple carrots. The bathrooms are a bit small but I get that it's supposed to feel like a ship's bathroom. Not a deal breaker. The manager, Evan, was very nice as well, he had a nice Playlist of music going throughout our visit, and he even assisted us with taking some photos. I told him I'd add the pic with him in our review. All in all, we had a great time, and would return.

    Excellent food great restaurant service is a little slow items on the menu that I ordered would never brought to the table if you’re having the brunch menu that’s unlimited drinks for 90 minutes try to get the attention of your server so that you can at least get two drinks in a frequent place often seems like there’s good days and bad days

    What a nice gem! Came here on a Sunday with my husband and daughter. (12 months) This is a great place for a light dinner with fresh options. We came just in time to sit at the area where they usually keep strollers, so that worked for us. (Inside) We had the bbq wings (tasty) kale Cesar (I’ve had better) warm lobster roll (yummy) and Mac and cheese (creamy & delicious) everything came out as we were ready to eat so we loved everything. Ambiance I would give 10/10 since it’s right near the water and the sun was going down nicely there. The restaurant is surprisingly big. This is definitely a nice girls spot to get oysters and drinks so I’ll be back sans hubby and child ! For drinks we had a a ginger beer and a Stella, cold and refreshing ! No pics because we we’re super hungry lol will come back and update 😀

    Great place to eat and take in the views. The painkiller is a must try. The lighting in the bathrooms could be brighter especially over the toilets. They also needed cleaning because the floors were wet.

    Overall: Such an amazing first experience. Waiter was fantastic and attended to our needs. My partner and I originally went and couldn’t be seated at a table because we didn’t have a reservation. We left disappointed, but then ended up making a reservation on the spot and we were able to go back and be seated this time. The guy who had originally told us that we couldn’t get a table was so nice. He brought my partner and I 2 complimentary drinks. Food and drinks at this place are AMAZING! So worth the try! Highly recommend!! The view was a plus!

    Sea Wolf's best feature is its breathtaking view of Manhattan skyline. Go during or after sunset and ask to sit outside. The lobster roll was good, but overpriced.

    I was looking for a place to eat in Williamsburg, and found Sea Wolf on Open Table. What a find that it turned out to be. It's located in a lovely spot with great views of the river & Manhattan. My shrimp tacos and whole branzino with vegetables were so delicious, and the portions were quite generous. The key lime pie was the perfect way to finish the meal. My server Christian was beyond amazing - so friendly and knowledgeable, he made certain that my dining experience was perfect. I will definitely go back.

    Great scenery, great vibes. Food could be better. Fish would be better if filleted. Lobster was over cooked. No potatoes served with meal as written. Tried to go for dessert after at snow wolf and they told us at 645 we couldn’t get ice cream even though they close at 7.

    Their quality of dood has gone down recently. The oyesters were good. The mussels were very average. The fish tacos were more batter than fish. Calamari could’ve been crispier and more fresh.

    When you arrive you are greeted like a welcome guest. It was a hot night but sitting inside was more oppressive than sitting outside where there was a breeze. The waiter was prompt and attentive. I found the chairs uncomfortable. Where the restaurant failed was the food was at best mediocre. Not expensive just nothing to return for. Biggest sin my beer was not cold.

    I had no idea this wonderful spot for dining and enjoying a view of the East River is in existence. The staff are very attentive and accommodating. I had the lobster roll which was a very substantial, in fact a “doggie bag” was needed to take half home. I would recommend adding greens to the beet salad. I will certainly return and have already touted Sea Wolf to friends

    Extremely rude hostess. Who made every effort to be unpleasant and curt. 50 minute wait time for an appetizer after being seated. Inattentive staff that kept the tiny tables filled with plates and too many glasses. Greasy bland burger that was presented on a soggy bun. Lobster mac & cheese had zero flavor. The grilled lobster was pretty good. Server wasn’t interested in apologizing for the 50 minute wait time for food

    Staff was good. Food just really subpar. Fish not fresh at all. Flavor not great. Woke up at 1am doubled over in pain (from either lobster roll, bites of clam chowder, or oysters). Really wanted to like this place because close to apt and on waterfront and am not that critical of restaurants. Understand seafood is expensive esp these days but price doesn’t match the quality of the food.

    Tiny portion of fish and chips. Quite expensive for what it is. Nice location but it was extremely hot, we asked to sit inside - we were told there was nothing available inside. So were sat outside, yet a number of tables remained vacant inside throughout our meal.
