I've always enjoyed going here for the service and food. The servers are fantastic as well as the host/hostess. We had the lobster roll which I would highly recommend, because there were tons of lobster meat and kewpie mayo had a delicate lemon flavor which complemented the lobster wonderfully. We ordered a bottle of sparkling wine, but it was not chilled and that took a while to get to an appropriate serving temperature. Since we had to wait quite a bit for the wine to chill, a recommendation would be for the server to offer a complimentary beverage in the meantime. Outside of that, this is a great place to dine in a lovely environment!

The lobster roll dinner substitution on the menu was GREAT! Please add that item to your ongoing menu. It was great to listen to live Blues while dining with friends.

The food was okay i think you paid the price on the food because of the view. We just waited a really long time and it was really empty. Even when we were trying to leave we couldnt find anyone to bring us the check

Beautiful location, delicious food, but pricey! The outdoor patio is fabulous but definitely a treat at these prices. And since when did "corn done two ways" over halibut mean that one of those "ways" was POPCORN?! For $35?! That might have been offered differently, though the halibut was delicious. Just something to note...

Outside beautiful view at a round table for six. Sparkling wine at $45 was a treat for our celebration. Food uniquely prepared and delicious in ample portions. Service was provided by a charming wait-person, friendly and courteous, efficient and never rushed. We sat pleasantly for 2 and half hours just chatting even though we had finished eating at least thirty minutes before we left. A truly delightful experience.

Great venue for out of towners. Just don’t order the Boston favorite: lobster roll. Some add-in to the mayo did not please my taste or that of my companion. Lobster itself was not flavorful enough to override the unappealing seasoning.
Oysters good.
Service lovely.

Our table was ready at the reserved time. The wait staff were attentive, fast and efficient. The food was tasty. We ate at the Sea Grille because post-pandemic the Harborwalk Terrace no longer offers drinks nor food. I look forward to the Harborwalk Terrace re-opening soon.

It was a beautiful dinner on a beautiful evening overlooking the harbor! Shrimp was huge and oysters were clean and cold and crisp! Try the watermelon salad! The baked 2 pound lobster was the best lobster I had in Boston. Service was impeccable and friendly, too. Thanks for a great memorable dinner!

I had decided at the last minute to go out. I am so glad I did. I'm normally not fond of outdoor dining but, once again, I am so glad I did so. The service was very good, the food wonderful (I have stayed at the Boston Harbor Hotel before), and the sangria (my preferred poison) made it truly feel like summer. Summer as it should be, instead of dying in the heat and contemplating throwing myself into the harbor.

We ate here July 4, 2020 for our 30th anniversary and LOVED the food and menu. We came back July 4, 2021 … new menu and chef are horrible. Food choices were minimal, pricing was doubled and the taste was amateur chef level. VERY DISAPPOINTED..!!!

The lunch was delicious (grilled shrimp salad) and perfectly dressed and the dessert (crème brûlée with raspberry sorbet and melt-in-your-mouth meringue sticks) outstanding!

Ambience on patio was lovely.

I went on both Thursday (brunch) and Saturday (lunch) with different friends and the check-in and service was excellent. All my friends loved thier meals.

The service, ambience and food was 5 star. The only negative were the extremely load fog horns from the boats leaving the dock twice during our lunch! A small price to pay for an otherwise fantastic lunch and afternoon!

My wife and I had lunch at the Sea Grille the other day. It was a beautiful day so we sat outside. Our server, Janice was terrific. My wife had oysters and a gem salad. Both were great. I had the jumbo shrimp cobb salad. It was also great but I really miss the crabmeat salad that used to be on the menu.

I took my father to celebrate Father’s Day. We were seated at 11:05am. We were told we were too late to order breakfast and too early to order lunch. Then after several minutes we were told they were “running late for lunch.” They did not take our order until after 11:40am. The waiter was fantastic. But the host/manager should have handled this better. Very disappointing. Next time I will definitely go elsewhere.
