Worst service . I had to go and find the waitress to pay the table.
Ordered a short expresso. Expresso got served on a huge mug filled half, with warm drip coffee.
Asked for the desert , waitress forgot to bring the menu or even asked if I need it any longer. Badly run and I feel bad about the owner of the place . their money is being wasted and reputation ruined.

Food was underwhelming and didn’t match the beautiful environment. The veggie plate was quite sad where the veggies looked like they had been sitting around for awhile and the food overall didn’t look fresh or was worth the money. I would go for drinks but not for dinner.

The crab Mac and cheese was absolutely amazing. If you're hungry and want a lot of food I highly suggest the large seafood tower.

I always have a wonderful time at the Rowes Wharf Sea Grille. This time I brought my out-of-town friend there lunch. She requested the seafood tower, which is only available on the dinner menu. The server and the chef were very accommodating and were able to make one up for us! We also had the grilled jumbo shrimp cobb salad. Everything was fresh and delicious.

This restaurant is not only a great neighborhood restaurant but is also one of my favorite eateries given the warm and friendly service and always tasty and well prepared food.

We had an exceptional meal all around at Rowe's Wharf Sea Grille. It was the best meal during our entire two-week vacation. The food was outstanding -- cooked just right with lots of flavor. The server and wait staff did an outstanding job, including details like keeping water glasses full, picking up empty plates, and being attentive without being at all intrusive. We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of our meal and will keep this restaurant on our list of places we'd visit again when we next go to Boston.

Food was wonderful but smaller portions. Our waitress was wonderful and we had a pleasant experience with all of the staff. You are right on the docks so it did get a bit loud with the boats, we had an infant so that was difficult. The outside seating was beautiful as well.

Enjoyed our dinner at the Sea Grille. I did let them know that we were celebrating a birthday however the server did not do anything to acknowledge this. I would expect at least a “happy birthday” when he brought the desert out. I also felt like we were rushed out. There were at least two open tables on the patio so I do not understand why the server would not ask if we needed anything else, another drink or coffee. Overall we had a nice meal.

The food was good and not as expensive as you might think. We ate outside and the views were amazing. The patio area was clean and neat and featured lots of well-tended flower boxes. The outstanding service was the best part. Looking forward to going there again!
