Fresh, contemporary southern food with an emphasis on seafood. People it does not get better than this place. Attentive staff, good cocktails, and otherwise amazing food. Literally nothing was less than spectacular. Loved the pork braised taco appetizers. Highly recommended.

Beautiful private room for the bridal shower and the food was great - especially the shrimp and grits! The Sangria drink special was delicious and very refreshing!!

The restaurant ambiance is very modern. High ceiling so you can have a good conversation even when full. Food is very good with a good variety. We were service an appetizer free since this was our first visit. Service was excellent. Local and fresh food service even the fish.

The water had a chemical taste and the garlic chips were greasy---probably... More

Had the third lunch I've experienced at 18 Seaboard, and it was just as good as the last. Perhaps the great thing is that you can choose times and won't be overwhelmed with noise. My friend and I went at 12:45 and most of the lunch crowd was gone or leaving. That was great because we had a nice booth... More

Just because it's called "seaboard" doesn't mean it has only seafood! The Brisket was tender with a tangy sauce and was excellent. We arrived just as it was opening for the evening and it was quiet and comfortable. Great service.

A very interesting menu loads of choice and made me as a British visitor feel as if I was really in the Deep South.
