Seafood
Located in the historic Lighthouse Cove Resort, Seaside Grill was opened in the fall of 2011 by Owner Bret Hughes. Our vision is to create a fun and casual dining atmosphere on the beautiful Atlantic Shores of Pompano Beach. We serve wonderful and original seafood specials along with other delicious Floridian fare. Call us biased, but we think Seaside Grill is the perfect place to host your events or simply a great place to cheer on the Dolphins (or Steelers!) while chugging frosty brew.. Our beautiful beach side view couples perfectly with our various food offerings to give your event what it needs to impress any attendees. Fresh seafood, ocean views and frosty cocktails...come and experience what everyone is talking about.

The food was excellent. Properly seasoned, prepared and displayed. A table by a window overlooking the beach and ocean was a plus.i would recommend dining there and make certain to request Fred to be your server. He was definitely a great addition to a wonderful dining experience. If there was a drawback it was the fact that it could have been a little cooler.

Food, service, ambiance was great! Actually I did go back on this visit! You’ve got to visit Amy and order the Grilled Avocado with ceviche and the lobster filled ravioli with shrimp! Fantastic!🥑🍤

We have eaten at Seaside grill many times and each time the food is wonderful.. They have a great bar and wine list also. Our last visit was more of the same (great) as the food was wonderful, the drinks were great and our service team was the best. We will keep coming back, thanks

The mahi was fishy for fish. They comped it before we even asked. The rest of the meal was great. Service was on point. The drinks made us take an Uber home. Def recommend. 👍👍

This is a rundown restaurant. Tables show their age. We ordered the clam chowder and lobster bisque. Both were over seasoned. Never saw grey clam chowder before. Stuffed Mahi was overcooked
(dry) . Ordered seafood combo ( crab legs and lobster) , all over cooked and rubbery. Had to ask for seafood utensils twice. No one ever came over to check how things were. No wet naps or towel to clean my hands. The topper was I valeted the car and the attendant left. Took at least 10 minutes for them to find the keys to my car

Unfortunately I didn't get out waitress name but she was outstanding.
Spinach dip was great, ribs were good and jerk grouper could use a little more spice.

Our recent initial dining experience was most enjoyable regarding excellent service, quality and presentation of food. Two concerns: If one prefers a more formal setting then one must take into account the very casual nature and location of this restaurant which accounts for beachwear clad patrons (diners in tank tops etc.) I'd like to bring a wheelchair bound individual to experience this restaurant but I don't recall seeing an elevator that accesses the restaurant's level.
My only real complaint would be the filthy and extremely worn lobby step carpeting leading to the restaurant level (gross, unappetizing and unacceptable). Surely management is aware of same but it appears no one cares.

Our server was excellent. The food was very overpriced for the poor quality! All of the seafood we ordered was over cooked and hard. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant!

Was lucky to find a spot to park. Very small parking lot for restaurant and hotel. Was seated quickly. From the pictures I thought you had a real view of the ocean. Nope mostly pool and the tiki bar view. Just a small and I mean small view of the ocean. Ordered drinks and they tasted good. I ordered stuffed crab mahi and asked for it to be blackened. Food came and not blackened at all but tasted good. Told waiter when he came to table after it was half eaten and he did offer to take it back and have them fix it...no thank you..so I didnt even get a discount on my bill for my food being wrong. Not even offer a free dessert or drink. My husband's ribs were good and no complaints on his meal. I dont expect things for free but some kind of I'm sorry would have been nice. So overpriced with no real view. Wont eat there again on any future trips.

The waiter was dripping in sweat, we watched our drinks sitting at the bar for over 15 minutes before being picked up and brought to us. The calamari was clearly frozen and reheated. Worst calamari I’ve ever had. We left after our appetizer.

Good food with a view. They feature a variety of seafood plates not found in other restaurants. Quality was good, portions enough for the very hungry at reasonable prices. Well be back to try some of their other seafood specials.

Excellent seafood offerings with a sea view! The Wahoo fish dip was delish! We used it as spread on garlic bread, as well as the tortilla chips that it comes with. Flounder fingers were crispy and light! We created our own "surf-n-turf" by splitting a full rack of ribs and 2 lobster tails. Can't beat the setting!

The Seaside Grill is nice place with great views and ambiance. The entire staff was top notch and very accommodating. We went on a Friday and there was live music that was just the right amount of sound. Our party of 8 could easily still converse at our table. Menu had good variety and the food all tastes great.

Perfect dinner. Erica was our server, she was pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. We started with lobster bisque (very creamy and not over powered with a lister taste.) this paired well with the garlic bread basket. We enjoyed the calimari (fried to perfection, not rubbery at all). For an entrée hubby and I shared the fried flounder. Again this was cooked to perfection. The breading reminded me of being home and the way mom would bread our fish. Very tasty. I would recommended dinner there. They did have live music, it was not played loud that you couldn't hear the person next to you. Good auditable level.

Maybe my expectations were too high. For being on the beach, was thinking my fish should be outstanding and very fresh. It was good, but not outstanding.

We visited on Memorial Day and although it wasn’t busy, service was very slow. I actually got my salad before we got our drinks. My order of the seafood trio was very skimpy. 2 scallops, 1/2 of a crab, and a 4oz Lobster tail for $35. I left hungry.

Indoor and outdoor dining were available, however, the menus differed depending upon which you chose. No one advised us about this...We dined outdoors where the music was very loud and the only available seating was directly in front of the sound speakers.
Food was good as was the server. It was unfortunate that smoking was allowed outside.

If you go in thru the Lighthouse you step on to a very old smelly rug. It should be replace.
We where four. My food was ok. My daughter got the wrong order. When she got the right one it was cold. She returned it.
Service was good. Friendly staff. There where only three tables. There was no reason for the food to be cold. It was Mothers Day.
