We celebrated our 45th anniversary at the Sea Grille. We were so well taken care of from the moment we arrived. The manager welcomed us to the bar for our pre dinner drinks, and Roslyn, the hostess, made sure we had the table we requested and she was just so genuinely excited for us. The food was fabulous, the service amazing, and Joseph took great care of us back at the bar after dinner. Thank you all for such a wonderful anniversary dinner. We will be back again soon.

During the pandemic, we have been out to dinner just two times, both at the Sea Grille. We are a family of healthcare professionals and we have been so impressed by the consideration and attention of every single person we have encountered on the staff— by telephone or in the facility or out on the patio. Our servers have been impeccable, friendly, kind and well-informed.

This has always been one of our favorite spots for a special occasion because of the food and the location. In our last two visits we have appreciated most the excellence of service and safety.

We are so grateful and will be back again and again.

We instantly felt welcome by all the staff. The restaurant took safe, COVID-wise standards to heart. But the cuisine is why we go. We both had the halibut, a generous portion with a light, crispy herb topping that had perfect balance. It was nicely paired with a Trimbach Pinot Gris. For starters he had the plump mussels. Just perfect. My clam chowder was Devine richness with a great seafood flavor.

My son and I had our traditional post-birthday breakfast before our Zoom meetings. Jenn and Maria were warm and welcoming. They were professional as they reminded us of the stricter Covid rules as of last week-masks off only when consuming.
The food was outstanding! I'm hoping to have another Pre-Zoom breakfast with my husband next week.
Kudos to all the staff who work hard to follow the Covid guideline.
Thank you!

It was lovely sitting outside at the Sea Grille. The server was friendly and very mindful of all of the safety precautions. So, the whole experience was pleasant, and the care of the staff gave us peace of mind. As for the food, I had the fish and chips. The batter was light and seasoned nicely. Chips were fabulous! My friend had the halibut; she said was not only plentiful but really tasty. All in all, a wonderful lunchtime dining.

Food not very good. Better meal at Bertuccis. No comparison to Meritage restaurant upstairs that has now closed. Thought the Sea Grille would step up the quality of food since Meritage has closed, but not the case. Server, staff, cleanliness and ambiance all great!
Sorry but thank you...

The atmosphere was lovely, sitting outside with heaters above and a view of the water. I thought the menu was a bit limited and had items I had no interest in such as salmon encrusted with horseradish, but what we ended up ordering was excellent. We had the Caesar salad with Jonah crab, a winner, and the steak which was cooked perfectly and had a tasty sauce. I would definitely come back.

My beau was visiting from TN, and I knew I wanted him to have an iconic and romantic evening, so I decided on the Rowes Wharf Sea Grille, and it did not disappoint. Lovely service and amazing food. We asked for a recommendation of a bottle, and the waiter selected a great bottle based on our tastes while keeping in mind we were balling on a budget.

The ambiance was wonderful as well as the warm table outside. We were given the following days menu and then when ordering - told that we don’t have that. When they gave current menu it was NO where as good and we were disappointed. Food was good but evening started off in the wrong foot which was a bummer

Clam chowder was delicious. However, my burger was sub-par - very bland (though the fries were delicious). My husband got the lobster hollandaise with truffle - was good.. but you couldn't taste any truffle. They also forgot to bring the included mimosa with my husbands meal and we had to ask for it. Overall.. was a beautiful view but for the price food was just mediocre.

If you are looking for a guaranteed outdoor eating spot on the water, this place is great. They do limit your time to one hour and a half but I really appreciated their honesty up front when we booked and I totally understood it. The food was good. They did do a lovely presentation for our son's birthday with dessert.
