Seafood
Seaworthy showcases wild-caught and sustainably harvested oysters from American waters — Gulf Coast, East Coast, and West Coast alike — as well as locally sourced fish and game. The celebrated beverage program offers both classic and proprietary cocktails, with a smart selection of beer and wine.

Set in a classic Creole cottage built in 1832, Seaworthy was opened by Ace Hotel with support from the team at Grand Banks. Please note that we only have stair access to our second and third floor.

Seaworthy culls inspiration from Gulf Coast waterways, the time-worn traditions of Southern hospitality and the legendary exuberance of the city of New Orleans.

The food was very good. Oysters and wine were superb. The fish dishes were good, although nothing out of ordinary. Our waiter did a great job but was a bit overworked. Overall, nice and safe experience. Highly recommended.

Food is great and the service was good. We were seated in the bar area, so lot of traffic and noise, which is not so bad depending on your vibe, but we had a table for four and probably should have requested one of the dining rooms. All in all, we had a good time and the food was marvelous.

Wonderful selection of fresh seafood paired with local ingredients. The gulf raw oysters were excellent, with a large variety of options. The root vegetable oyster chowder is better than most in New England. The lobster roll is absolutely fresh served on a warm buttery roll. Service was excellent. Recommend setting outside during these beautiful spring evenings.

Super cute and tendy. Amazing fresh seafood. Menu was a little confusing- but our server was great and spelled it out for us. We had the trio appetizer- tuna, shrimp and cobia. Cobia was not great. But the others were amazing! I did the lobster roll - best I ever had and I lived in the Hamptons for 10 years. My husband has the shrimp roll. Such a great night and I would totally recommend. Oh and explore the restaurant- it is decorated to a T

Fantastic place with cool vibe & decor. I had my eye on it for a while & finally was in town on just the right day to give it a go...I was not disappointed. Service was excellent & the noise level was reasonably low so that conversation could occur with raising one’s voice. The food was outstanding, of course.

Check out their menu & give it a go.

So glad my husband and I decided to book Seaworthy for an evening out. We were seated in the bar during their happy hour, which had a nice intimate feel to it. All the staff was very attentive, even though they seemed busy, and were fun the talk to throughout our dining. The oysters were top notch, also. We enjoyed 2 rounds of the happy hour baker's dozen plus an extra half dozen of their wild gulf oysters. We'll definitely be dining here again before our holiday vacation ends.

The worst experience we’ve all ever encountered. Rude, mean, host who was very discriminatory and staff members even openly laughed at and mocked our friend who has a disability and was actually the guest of honor for the evening, to the point where she cried outside of the restaurant. Absolutely disgusting behavior by staff and none of us will ever return to this establishment, which is heartbreaking because it has been our favorite for so long. The staff member greeting guests that evening should not be employed with this company, or this certainly won’t be the last review if it’s kind for this establishment.

The oysters were great. That was our favorite part. The service was just ok. A girlfriend and I went to dinner and we felt very rushed. I had been to Seaworthy twice before and it was a lovely experience previously but we felt like the server wanted us in & out much too quickly. Also, when we arrived they had "bumped" our reservation to a high-top table inside at the bar and that's not what we had in mind at all. Luckily the host was able to fix it but how can you just "bump" (that was the word he used) someone from outside to inside like that? Especially with a pandemic going on? The food other than the oysters was just ok. The drinks were just ok too.

Tiki style drinks, thoughtful oyster (& raw bar) offerings and attention to nautical detail make this a stop worth making. We ate on the patio (which was perfect and social-distancing friendly) and had oysters, crab dip, and 3 of the chilled/cured offerings. The Cobia tiradito was the stand out star. We will definitely be back!

PS- staff took temp check at door, wore masks and respected COVID distancing guidelines.
