    We enjoyed an absolutely beautiful early evening dinner! The location is spectacular. Sitting outside overlooking the Boston Harbor from Rowe’s Wharf Sea Grille is an instant special occasion which also happened to be my birthday. The shrimp cocktail was generous and delicious. My husband ordered the halibut, me the scallops. The tastes were only surpassed by the presentation. Dessert was the Dark Chocolate Bar with Raspberry Sorbet.

    A Gem within the city on the waterfront!!! The outdoor seating is perfect!!! Not very busy with bystanders. Not noisy. We've come several times, and never disappointed. But this time, the salad was a little wilted, and the delicious mushrooms app was very salty. The fish and chips were plentiful and delicious! Fish was really fresh and flaky. The scallops were very fresh, tasty , and tender but few. The service was good, friendly and attentive waitstaff. We will definitly return.

    The omelette was over cooked and very brown. Coffee wasn’t hot. They asked on the reservation if this meal was an event. I selected birthday and that wasn’t mentioned. Vegetables on the omelette was also burnt.

    We had breakfast on this occasion; Saturday morning where the regular menu was offered as well as their sumptuous breakfast buffet. We opted to order from the regular menu and everything we had was delicious. Our server, Rafael was attentive but unobtrusive as a waiter should be. We have to mention Janice who we met at our previous breakfast ; she’s a delight and helped to clean up the coffee my husband spilled due to blindness in his right eye. We had a great time laughing and joking with her and it made an awkward situation not awkward at all.

    Breakfast. Hubby had traditional bacon, eggs, home fries and croissant; I had classic eggs Benedict. Everything was delicious. It was very warm in the restaurant so we asked to be seated away from the windows which helped. Boston is having a heat wave and we are from Charleston and it was STILL wicked hot. Server Susan was great. Janice, a food runner and table staff was the rockstar,though. When my husband spilled his coffee, she immediately helped with humor and pathos. 👏🏼

    Restaurant was adequate. Good appetizers, mediocre main courses. Server was only OK. I believe I left my credit card at the restaurant. I called three times to check over several days. Each time I went into voicemail with a message that I would be called back within 30 minutes. I never got the courtesy of a reply. It's fairly staggering to encounter such arrogance and poor customer service. I spent $380 (for two), and that was the service I received.

    So very disappointed in this dining experience. The bar was horrible did not even know how to mix, and drink properly the food is definitely over priced under plated, and worst of all, no imaginative!. Had an excellent meal the following night in Providence. Very disappointing since we brought out of town guest who were looking for good seafood. Epic fail

    Truth be told overall mixed. Ambience and service were exceptional. The food, however, was not. My companion had to send her Halibut entree back as it was very overcooked. I had the Tuna Poke which was good, but not exceptional. Crab cocktail appetizer was very good though. Sign of the times?

    We had a late lunch July 16 with reservations. Service was good, staff friendly and professional. We and another couple had eaten at the Sea Grille several times. Food has always been very good. This time, not so. The lobster roll had a skimpy amount of lobster in it and it was on a hot dog bun. My spicy Nashville fish sandwich was not good at all. Soggy topping. Good fries though. All the parties in our group commented they expected better from the Sea Grille. For the money, we were not happy.

    Beautiful location right on the waterfront. Good service. And very good food: the lobster was tender and the clam chowder had the best presentation I've seen--with some of the clams still in shells, and two sizable hunks of grilled break to top it off.

    We miss the “simple” fish options. Hoisin sauce and fish don’t mix and the scallop had a heavy sauce. We used to eat there twice a week and miss the old menu.
