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.

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.

It was horrible, the food tasted as if it was out of a box and what wasn’t was horrible too. The service was the same, we waited over an hour for our food and no one came by to check on us.

I had the "pecan snapper." The fruit sauce looked like gravy, making this a visually unattractive plate. The pecan crust added nothing to the dish, as it had little or no flavor. To make matters worse, the fish was somewhat tough, telling me that it had been frozen. All in all, this was an unattractive and flavorless dish. Was it even snapper? The "fresh cut glazed carrots" were baby carrots. There's nothing fresh cut about those. Very unappealing.

My wife had the "smokehouse salmon." There was no appearance of a dry rub. In fact, the filet was smothered in some type of BBQ sauce--apparently the "spicy tomato glaze."

The key lime pie was served on a plate garnished with an artistically placed jello swirl (green and red). Unfortunately, the chemical quality of the green (lime?) jello has not correspondance to the taste of the good key lime pie.

All in all, it seems that this restaurant is cutting corners. The food as served doesn't quite match the menu items as described, and, given the prices, one should expect a better experience.

Food was average, not bad but we were hoping a little more upscale atmosphere and some fish of the day options. Restaurant is in desperate need of a good cleaning, floors, window sills and vents are very dirty. Almost to the point we should have walked out as you wonder what the kitchen looks like.
Our waiter Justin was very friendly, helpful and gave great service.

They must have been experiencing an off day when we were there. The food took 90 minutes to come out. Portions were very small although prices are reasonable. Not the best experience we had in the area

It was very nice. Good food and service. The location is very pretty, close to the beach. However, it was disappointing that they offered only a limited Easter brunch menu. We should have been advised we would not be able to order off the regular menu.

The restaurant has a lovely view of the pool area and the beach at this resort. We had a window seat overlooking the view and the live music on a Saturday night. The extensive menu has everything from sandwiches to full entrees. We started with the clam chowder which was excellent and well seasoned. My husband had the Caesar salad as one of the sides with his salmon entree. The salmon was a little over cooked and dry. Next time I would tell them to make it on the rare side. I had the shrimp scampi over linguini. The shrimp were plentiful and large in a sauce with roasted garlic cloves. Very good. I had a Mojito cocktail which was also good. Prices are very reasonable. The service was good but main course was a little slow in coming out of the kitchen.

Glad we went back. Nothing changed since we were there last. We always enjoy ourselves. It always
has that old time atmosphere. It's an older crowd and we love it. They have a small band that plays
music we like. I hope it stays the same, BEACHY.

We had a very nice meal and value for food our first experience at Seaside Grill. The outdoor Tiki bar had fun music.
The second experience was not as good.
We were unable to get condiments for our simple (somewhat over-cooked burger). The Seaside Grill was busy, and customers were very enthusiastic to watch the Sweet 16 games on the TV screens. Unexpectedly in middle of the March Madness games, the proprietors shut off the TV's and had a stand-up comic while people were eating and enjoying the game. This immediately changed the atmosphere of the room. Customers clearly were then disappointed, and the comedians did not receive any laughs. It was awkward, and we had to find our server to check-out and pay our bill.

I stayed next door at the Residence Inn. To the best of my knowledge this was the only restaurant in the area outside of poolside hotel spots. The menu offered a great variety and everything was delicious. The only down side I would say is that with the appetizer fire cracker shrimp they only bring you two small pieces of garlic bread for a big dish. The only option is to buy another appetizer of garlic bread to finish the dish. Bread is cheap, make it happen! The staff was wonderful.

This place was packed with sports team people so we were glad we had a reservation. Good smoked fish pate for appetizer but wished they had crackers instead of the stale tortilla chips. Seafood ravioli were good but the snapper was tough and overcooked, even though I had specifically asked about whether their chef could do it without overcooking. They kindly took it off the bill but i had really wanted a good snapper again. Hard to believe how hard it is to find properly cooked fish even in Florida. Nice views at this place and a fun atmosphere with tiki bar outside.

Restaurant was very loud and very dirty. Host tried to seat us “near the windows with an ocean view”. The ocean view is beyond the pool so we would have had a pool view of hotel guests swimming and playing not an ocean view. We left before sitting down due to the noise and the smell.

We love to come here Friday evenings for the live music. Food is very good. We always started with the clams steamed in white wine and garlic. We order extra garlic bread to sop up the broth. Entrees were coconut shrimp, my favorite, and the taco salad with blackened chicken, my second favorite. We washed it all down with a reasonably priced bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.

This restaurant is within walking distance of the Marriott so we gave it a try. It was just ok. Nice waiter, snarky bartender (my husband asked to watch one of the March Madness games and there were 3 customers at the bar but she was too busy to change the channel). Fried clams and coconut shrimp and spinach dip were pretty good. I will say the salmon on my daughters taco salad was very good. Wouldn't go back.
