My wife and I came to the Sea Venture after seeing the different reviews about the views. We ordered the couples lobster and fillets ($78) and it was much larger than I had expected. The meal consisted of two lobster tails, two good size filets, potatoes and vegetables. I had also ordered the clam chowder as an appetizer and that... More

This is one our favorite locations for happy hour. The drinks are reasonably priced and they have very good discounted appetizers. My favorite is the beef sliders. Of course the ocean view is fantastic and sets an atmosphere of pure relaxation.

We were seated promptly at a table next to the window. Drinks arrived quickly. Food was good but not great. I loved all the veggies served with the entrees. The presentation of the beet salad was very unique. Our server was friendly. Our water glasses were refilled promptly. A nice evening!

Surprisingly there are only a couple of places to eat and drink that overlook the beach and this is one them. From the third floor restaurant you can have a drink on the balcony or inside. We had a drink on the balcony and watched the people on the beach and the sunset then stayed for dinner. Staff were friendly... More

We enjoyed the spectacular panoramic view of the beach, including almost continuous whale spouts and small breaches. We reserved early enough to get a good table at the picture windows. A local pinot noir ($5 during happy hour) at the bar beforehand, resisting the temptation to add fried oysters or oysters Rockefeller (which looked really good). Maybe if I can... More

We did not have a reservation but they were able to accommodate us without a problem. (5:30pm Saturday night) I had the Vol-en-venta - This was absolutely amazing. If you love lobster, lobster sauce and shrimp what a great presentation and great taste! My son had the prime rib special and he devoured the entire meal. We tried the clam... More

This restaurant overlooking the beach is a must stop place to eat. The service is outstanding as is the food. Their seafood is the best!

I sat at the bar and the bartender was very passionate about the menu! I got an appetizer and main and they were both really good and VERY filling! Good value! My only complaint is not the fault of the establishment...but there was a guy who would NOT leave me alone at the bar. He was very creepy and moved... More
