We just had a late lunch at Sea Watch today. Because it is very noisy inside the restaurant we always sit outside on the deck. The view is beautiful and peaceful. It may appear the prices didn't rise in the last years, but that's an illusion. The portions are smaller than ever. The service is friendly, but all we ordered... More

Great views, very pleasant wait staff. The meal started with a very good basket of bread. I had the lobster bisque soup and something new for me, crab melt on English muffin, both were excellent. Very happy with my lunch here.

It was surprisingly crowded on a weekday afternoon. There is a pleasant view of the beach and ocean as well as indoor and outdoor seating. There was a fairly wide range of items on the menu, mainly seafood as would be expected. Some felt the prices were high, but I thought they were in line since seafood is always expensive.... More

This was my late father's favorite restaurant and I was last here approx. 6 month and we enjoyed our meals. However, on Sunday we went there for dinner and left very disappointed. Perhaps, a new owner or chef? To top it off the older gentleman at the front desk was not very welcoming!

This is a place where I go regularly since the 1970's and a place I have recommended to friends in and off season. But yesterday came for lunch, reservation for 2 at noon, arrived 10 minutes before and restaurant just starting to get busy. I asked to be sat but the manager George, even if I was polite and soft...

We went to Sea Watch for an early Valentines Day dinner. Our water Matthew was outstanding. We always have the lobster tails. They are a little expensive when you add on a salad and soup but taste soooooo good. Well worth the price for a special occasion. We happened to be here for a full moon as well and the... More

Excellent again. My wife and I took out of town guest for a great dinner at Sea Watch. Wednesday night is always half price for bottles of wine, so that is great. Enjoyed fish with crab stuffing that was terrific. Another great time.

Landed at lunch time on girls weekend and had to get to the beach to eat. So glad we came as we were able to be seated outside upstairs to see the ocean, sand, palm trees and blue sky. Crab melt sandwich and Triggerfish Schnitzel were perfect to share with 3. Ne order of stone crabs rounded out the meal... More

On a whim, we drove out to the beach to find a seafood restaurant on the ocean. What we found is a beautifully decorated, classy but casual place to enjoy each other's company. Larry, our server, was helpful with first timer suggestions but non-evasive with our time and space. After dinner we went for a walk on the beach and... More
