Excellent food, service, and atmosphere for our 12th wedding anniversary. They even gave us a complimentary surprise creme brûlée that was incredible and so so delicious. Unbeatable prices for such ambience. Five stars!!

Sunday brunch is a treat. Sea Venture has a limited menu for their once-a-week breakfast/brunch. We've tried virtually everything over the last year or so and they are all excellent. Occasionally the service can be slow, as it was on our last visit, but the waitstaff is always polite and accommodating and the food prep is usually flawless

Our waitress was not very friendly or attentive. Things improved only after we complain to the manager. we opted to sit outside because it was a nice day but there were no table settings and it was just patio furniture. it appears that the patio is just for people who didn't have reservations or were just hanging out for happy hour. we were very disappointed as it was our anniversary and we were hoping for a nicer atmosphere.

Absolutely one of the worst meals we have ever had for the price. The supposed fried chicken was 2 pieces of Chicken strips for 25!
Clam chowder was pasty. Prawn cocktail was ok.
Wine list is pathetic.
All this and seriously we eat out ALOT at all types of restaurants. This place needs a chef who is competent and staff who cares. Just sad as the location is where they rest their laurels.

We ate dinner at this restaurant on a Saturday night. It’s right on the beach and the views are incredible. The facility could use some upgrading, but has an old fashioned, local charm. The added shrimp on my curry dish were very large and fresh, and it was a very generous portion. My spouse ordered the ciopino type dish and enjoyed it. The prices seems fair for the quality and style of food. The menu and recipes could use updating. Our waiter was very friendly and accommodating. Not as upscale, top notch or “happening” as Ciopinot in San Luis Obispo (where we ate the next night), but a decent meal at a local specialty restaurant close to our hotel. (PS - It’s in a hotel, where we did not stay.)

We came on a Thursday evening (free corkage) to celebrate a friend’s birthday and had a lovely table looking out over the beach and ocean. We stayed for over 2 hours enjoying dinner and wine, and they brought a complementary crème brûlée for my friend. The food was delicious and perfectly prepared and reasonable for what you got.
