Rustic restaurant with an interesting history & long list of notable diners. Quirky must visit restaurant as diners leave the parking lot to wait at a small dock for a skiff to transport them to restaurant. Menu offers specials of daily fresh fish.. this is the main reason to visit. The fish is outstanding melt in your mouth delicious!

I was disappointed with my visit to Sea Watch. I was in a party of three and we were seated in a corner next to a very noisy party of six in the north side of the restaurant (1st floor). I don't understand why the large table for six is not placed in the corner with the smaller tables away from it (???). All we could hear was the conversation from the big table and the temperature was very warm. The food was okay (& the desserts were delicious). The waiter was very nice. However, I would NOT go back.

My wife had the grouper and sent it back, it was tough and dry. She chose to eat some of my paella rather than wait for a new plate. The paella wasOK but made with a brown rice that was passable. This used to be one of our favorite places in Ft Lauderdale, it now slips down the list

A very nice restaurant directly overlooking the beach. Very busy at peak times -- reservations definitely recommended. Our Saturday lunch experience was more enjoyable than dinner Tuesday evening -- less frenetic and much less noisy, as well as offering a better choice of tables with a view. Upstairs seating turns out to be considerably noisier than downstairs.

As snowbirds we 'found' the Seawatch 20 years ago - it is now a regular dining place when we get together with friends visiting from overseas or for special occasions. Never have we been disappointed with the service or food on occasion there was a 15 minute wait for our table - last two times no wait! Hope to go back for many years.

Hadn't been here in several years so decided to take a friend for her birthday. It was very busy on this Saturday night as we fully expected it would be. We had a 7:15 reservation and were seated by 7:25, so not a bad wait at all. I liked that the tables are not crowded together so you don't feel closed in and hearing everything at other tables! Our waitress was very pleasant, however when our salad orders were taking forever to come out we started to get a bit concerned that they were forgotten. We were right. The meals started coming out and we had to tell her that we never got our salads. She quickly took back the meal and brought our salads out! Our meals finally came out soon after. The food was good, not generous portions though for the prices. All in all we had a very nice evening there and love the atmosphere. If you're going for the view, go for lunch or early dinner!

Friends had salads and sandwiches which they said was great. The highlight was the hot fudge sundae with the fudge on the side. It was a beautiful day and the ocean was blue. We will be back.

It is a unique restaurant overlooking the beach and the sand dunes and is definitely worth the drive. We highly recommend it – try the crab cakes – no doubt the best anywhere and be sure to save room for one of the delicious desserts. We had Robin as our server, who is outstanding.

If one is offering a New England lobster roll, one must first of all make sure that a roll is provided. This restaurant's lobster roll was watery, skimpy, and impossible to hold because there was no roll but rather a kind of open faced bread thing requiring a fork and knife. Far too expensive for a pseudo New England specialty. Experience was quite disappointing, but offered an attractive view of the ocean.

I was there celebrating my girlfriends birthday. The place was packed. We sat in the covered patio area. At first it was great as the breeze from the ocean kept us cool.

Haven't been here since the mid 90's and decided to go for Valentines Day with two other couples. As always, great location! Service was a little slow to start. Ordered a Bloody Mary and it was made with tomatoe juice which I didn't like. The meal was very good. Had the Paella and it was just OK! Very good taste but just needs a few more shrimp. There was only two. A friend had the filet and lobster tail. Looked great! He loved it! Another had blackened Mahi Mahi and another had the grouper! Both looked amazing! Over all it was a good experience and want to go back for lunch so we can enjoy the views of the ocean

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 became very rude and told me to wait for my friend. No smile, just felt like if you don't like it leave. Ok, I understand the policy, but he was so rude and impolite, why? The others arriving, older couples mostly, he was always very nice to the men and also the mailman who passed by. So this of course broke the ambiance for the lunch, would I go back? Don't know, to me it was just a comfortable restaurant that I am used to. The service is always very good, the food good. \nJust to add, it was Valentine's day, lunch, so he probably wanted to stick to the policy, which I understand, but I have often been there and sat before friends arrive and ordered wine like we always do. \nOh and George, I've been to many, many very nice places and maybe you should go out and see how a talented manager treats clients.

I was very disappointed from the beginning. We were seated in a room that seemed to be more suitable for a family party or something of the like. Our server was obviously very green and seemed nervous and without personality. The entree portions were small compared to the prices. And my grouper was dry as a bone. I sent it back and no one apologized or tried to make it up to me. The asparagus side looked as if it had been out in the sun all day. The macaroni and cheese side tasted good because I was so hungry. Otherwise it too was underwhelming. First and last time.....

We have been to Sea Watch at least four times in previous years. This 5th time was disappointing: #[1] I had made the reservation about a month in advance but we were not seated in the glass enclosed Patio area. Instead we were placed opposite big circular orange booths resembling a diner. [#2] the menu changed and they eliminated my favorite eggplant vegetarian dish. [#3] I ordered grilled mahi rather than the blackened. The grilled tasted like hospital food & 1/4 size of of the blackened mahi. [#4] Finally there were no choices for tea - only black tea. Overall a disappointing experience. We are set to go back next month with other out-of-town guests but now my husband and I are reconsidering that.

My husband ordered the cobbler for dessert, and Sea Watch made it special. We had our favorite server, Robin, who is great. We highly recommend Sea Watch for its great food, service, and view of the ocean!

This location was suggested by my special guest as a very good venue. I booked the table through 'Open Table' and asked for seating for three near the open patio inside.\n\nThe host, was not gracious. He ask is we mined a few steps. I ask if we could see the ocean? We proceeded to the second floor to the rafters with a loud birthday party going on below us. We could not hear the waitress at all. \nThe all we saw was rafters and the top of palm trees. So sad.\n\nMy meal was ok. The steak was great and the scallops were terrible. This was after the waitress brought the wrong food. As friends ate, we waited for her mistake on our order. The scallops were not fresh and plump. No taste ... we did not stay not were we offered a desert menu or aperitifs. \n\nI had very night expectations for this meal and was terriblely disappointed. Next time visiting, we NOT return.

We requested 'View/Booth/Quiet' and boy, did we get a view! And a booth - big enough for 6! The booth looked out over the ocean with an almost 180 degree view - couldn't have asked for better seating! Our server, Pete, was very attentive, polite and friendly. The food was only mediocre, which was a disappointment considering how lovely the restaurant is and its situation overlooking the ocean. It was a bit noisy because of families with kids but it wasn't too bad. I would definitely recommend this restaurant since we went there once before and enjoyed it enough to go back. It may have been an 'off' night for the food?? Open Table offers 1,000 points for later seating - 8:00 pm on.

Our meals were freshly prepared, looked amazing and was delicious; from start (drinks, appetizers, lobster bisque, and seafood entrees) to finish (creme brulee). \n\nIt wasn't too crowded when we arrived, so we spent some quality time outside; never once felt pressure to hurry through our meal or conversation.

The Sea Watch on the Ocean (just 'the Sea Watch' to locals) sits back between high rise condos with an open view of a palm tree studded white sand beach in northeast Fort Lauderdale. Away from the crowds and with ample self-parking plus valet service, the two story restaurant caters to food lovers in the know with a pre-meal upstairs bar with counter and table seating and lower and upper dining, including an upstairs outside covered veranda with booth seating for the Caribbean breeze lovers. Hand blended Sangria, fresh catch-of-the-day, and artfully decorated plates stud the menu (or might just be made for you from scratch). The Dinner at Dusk fixed-price three-course dinner runs seasonally from 5 to 6 PM and typically includes lobster, Mahi Mahi and steak favorites (not a watered down menu) with moderate portions and value priced at under $25. My recent dinner for three with one drink ran $100 before tip. Large timbers, tons of tall glass windows and ironwork gives the restaurant a lodge appearance. Access for disabled is challenging (best to call and ask) with narrow stairs and tight bathrooms. Staff is top notch but may be a little tardy with a full house, but make up for it with tons of honest personal attention. Overall, it is one of the go-to places for locals that is away from restaurant row with amenities for Happy Hour, domestic seafood and steak dining, or to simply sit, sip and smell the ocean air.

Haven't been there for years and walked into a big disappointment. We were seated within 5 minutes of our reservations. The restaurant was very crowed and VERY noisy. The server was prompt getting our drink orders and the martini was excellent. Regrettably, that's where the good news ends. \n\nThis was a special occasion and the day before, I requested a quite corner table for two. We got a corner table, sort of. It was in back of he restaurant overlooking the beach but the noise level was so loud it was almost impossible to carry on a conversation without raising your voice. There was a large party seated not far from our table. Three young children from that group were running around chasing each other. The parents and the wait staff seemed oblivious to the commotion. Felt like were dining at Chucky Cheese.\n\nAlthough flavorful, the Lobster Bisque was the consistency of paste and the Bouillabaisse was too salty. Our waiter could not make a wine recommendation but got one from the bartender. The key lime pie was average at best. \n\nThe service was expedited, with only a few minutes between drinks and appetizer, and not much more than that between appetizer and entrée'. While our server was not pushy per se, you could tell she wanted to turn the table.\n\nAll in all, for the price of $185....never again. Sorry, Sea Watch, looks like you glory days are over, at least for us.

Arrived early and was at first told we couldn't be seated until the entire party was there. I had specifically told them when making the reservation that one party coming from Miami would probably be a little late and would the rest of us be seated. No problem, we were told. It took 15 minutes of asking permission from the manager,etc. before we got seated. Annoying to say the least. Our server was great. She seemed frazzled at times. She should have had more support staff. The food was good, a littt pricey for the small portions you got. We told the person making initial reservation, the check-in staff and wait staff it was a birthday celebration but there was no recognition at any time. $500. For 8.

Although the service was very good we were disappointed with the size of the portions we received. Served almost on small plates...the whopping $38 for a small plate of seafood was ridiculous. The size of the salmon was microscopic. The food had nice taste...but, we found that the restaurant is tremendously overpriced. The best thing about the place is sitting outside. The breeze on the deck was outstanding. The window was open and you could smell the beautiful ocean air. That air was nicely accompanied by a nice Cabernet...I would not go back because in south Florida there are lots of these types of places to choose from that are more reasonable with the same menu and superior presentation.

From 5-6 they have a special which included an appetizer , main course and dessert at excellent prices. My lady had the prime rib and I had the seafood medley and both were excellent... We look forward to coming back and enjoying the best view in South Florida .

We have been dining at SeaWatch for 25 years and have always enjoyed the food, service and exquisite view of the ocean. We've brought many friends and family here because it could always be depended on for consistent good food. On this visit we were very disappointed in the food, my husband ordered his favorite swordfish and the piece was flat, thin, dry and expensive. I ordered my traditional favorite Orange Roughy that I have ordered for many years and it was amazingly tasteless, the usual delicious sauce had absolutely no taste to it. Everything is ala carte, no more salad or sides included and the menu is pricey. Of course we're paying for the beautiful view but I hope this was just an off night because we have always enjoyed Seawatch.

1st with a reservation, indoor or outdoor preference should be left to the booking party, then when the booking party doesn't want to sit outdoors cause its 90 degrees outside at 830 pm, seat the booking party in a party room that is so loud that it is difficult to have a conversation. 2nd , order the most expensive fish on the menu, and it comes overcooked and dried out, if you are going to offer this caliber of a dish, preparation is critical. 3rd keep drinks filled at least water (I was in a desert).

The restaurant is kind of cool (in a way) in a retro nautical kind of theme. Our waitress was excellent so Sea Watch gets high marks on service. The food is fine, but pretty basic in terms of how the dishes are prepared and the menu has a very limited variety of fish for a restaurant that specializes in seafood. Overall it was good but a menu expansion and a little modernization in how the dishes are prepared could make this a very good restaurant.

Pros: view, view, view.\nCons: everything else (except service)\nA tired and dated 'nautical' look decor. Multi level, valet parking and good service. That said, food is abysmal. Lobster bisque tasted like 'Panera.' Someone had recommended the crab cakes so I tried them. They were big and mostly crab which is usually good except they used all 'back fin' crab not lump, for those who like crab cakes, you know the difference. Back fin is stringy and dry, the 'Asian slaw' on top did not help. Then I had scallops. These were not 'day boat' scallops nor sea scallops nor even bay scallops, these were those 'nickel size' tasteless scallops you get when you order scallops in your Chinese takeout. Unbelievably awful. Wife had 1/2 pound of King crab which was ONE leg. A 'special' that was nothing special to be sure (for $27 yet.) Key lime pie was better than most, saved the night. Our server (Larry) was very attentive and the overall price was reasonable but I would not go back.

My husband and I are snowbirds, and we recently returned to Florida. We live within walking distance of Sea Watch and it is a restaurant we visit frequently, especially the deck upstairs overlooking the beach. \nThis time friends joined us for the Dusk Dinner from 5-6. For $23.95 you are served your choice of 2 soups or salad, entree, and key lime pie or ice cream. I chose the salad which had everything from artichoke hearts to cheese cubes and fresh mixed greens with a flavorful dressing. I also chose the steamed lobster which was done just right and was tasty in its drawn butter. My sides were fresh green beans and roasted potato which matched up perfectly with the lobster. My husband enjoyed his prime rib, and the others who chose the mixed seafood entree were also pleased. \nSea Watch was closed for renovations while we were North, and we wondered if the food quality would remain the same. Conclusion: Everything was as good or better than before, and we enjoyed the many choices on the Dusk menu (in the past there were only 2 or 3). The Dusk menu ends when December ends and the tourists arrive, so hurry over to take advantage of this great meal.

Sea Watch was having a special event for their anniversary so the place was very busy. We were seated next to a table with very noisy people so the noise level was terrible. I observed that the portions were smaller than usual especially for the vegetables as there were only three small baby carrots and five string beans on the plate.

The food was a good value as we dined before 6pm however the service was lacking at first. Despite confirming an outside table for 6, we were initially brought to a 4-top buried in the top corner nook. We declined to sit at that table and were shown to a round table of appropriate size on the ground floor inside dining room. The birthday celebration meal was fine and enjoyable after a rough start. Our waitress was accommodating, much more so than the manager.

My wife and I had reservations on a Sunday night. We were a few minutes late due to heavy and slow traffic on A1A. The hostess was not very friendly and just asked us to wait, not offering any explanation. After about five minutes a gentleman came to show us our table which was on the patio. Our server (Tatiana) was very friendly and helpful (making up for the bad experience with the hostess). We liked our appetizers and main dishes (somewhat on the pricey side). We had a nice view of the ocean.

We've been going to Sea Watch since my mother moved to Florida in 1985. This was one of her favorite places. We hadn't been for quite awhile but tried it, again, for my husband's birthday, since it has a beautiful view of the beach. To start off, our server 'didn't see us' at the table. We waited 10 min before my husband walked over to a group to ask who was supposed to be helping us. according to my husband, the conch chowder wasn't spicy enough. I had the lobster bisque which was missing the lobster and sherry flavor, 2 requirements. The Caesar salad was very good and made with cold crisp romaine. The fresh bread, albeit sliced too thick for my preference, was outstanding, both the white and pumpernickel. My husband said his bouillabaisse was also missing seasoning. My trout was described as being 'lightly' breaded. I felt it was too breaded. There was absolutely no seasoning in the fish. The chili lime butter on the side was the only flavor, so I had to use more than I wanted. The side of couscous had some mixed vegetables in it - the same ones used in other menu items. I saw corn, red pepper and lots of green beans - along with my side of green beans - but, again, no seasoning. I guess we need to find a new seafood place.

Our booking was for the day Hurricane matthew passed by Florida. While we received written confirmation on the very day we were to visit we wanted to make sure that the restaurant was indeed open.

Not so, we arrived at a closed restaurant and were left to wonder whether it was the mistake of the restaurant or the booking system.

This could be so much better on every level for the potential. The service is friendly but the staff look a bit unkempt as does the restaurant in general. They wear these uniforms that look like the chef from the kitchen... yellowed and wrinkled instead of crisp white and ironed..\n\nThe building is gorgeous... under that tacky blue paint and all the naval paraphernalia. The chairs and booths lend themselves rather like those Lums restaurants of yore. Wooden tables highly varnished, paper mats that double as menus, I swear there were condiments on the table greek diner style.\n\nThere is nothing wrong with any of those things, however, I wish it were the fine dining experience that it could become because it has all the possibilities. \n\nIt is hard to understand. They have a prime location that is right on the beach and yet do not capitalize on that asset. They have an amazing building that just is meh... The food though tasty and plated fanciful enough is reduced somehow by the environment. \n\nI might give it another try, however I don't think so...

Took an out of state guest for a dinner. Lovely table, nice view. \nThe food is very nice. Not high end gourmet but basic flavors and I might say just a tad unimaginative. However, one of the party had severe shellfish ( I know) and nut allergies. Selected pasta which regrettably was described as including chili flakes ( why?) and pine nuts ( very 90's) sling with the cherry tomatoes and feta. Asked to have it made without either the chili flakes or the nuts snd to add olives instead. Guest loved the dish stating that theologies added a pop of flavor to an otherwise one note dish. \nThe paella is served without the crusty rice tradition calls for. This makes it very soft (since the rice was overcooked) and again fairly one textured. \nThe menu needs a little tweaking to bring it up to modern standards. \nThe decor is pleasant but they really need to do something about the chairs. They are slightly soft with a bar/ edge in the front that cuts into the legs unless you want to sit practically reclining in the seat. Frankly I was taught to sit erecting without touching the backs of chairs and found this very uncomfortable. Besides that , the bruises on the backs of my legs are just now starting to fade to green.

Wow -- so sorry to have to give this terrible report about a place my parents who were celebrating their 60th...that's SIXTIETH Anniversary chose specifically to celebrate this what should have been a fabulously memorable occasion that evening. They chose Seawatch SPECIFICALLY. Ana was great in taking down our modest requests in advance of our 5:00 reservation to place brought- in flowers and instructions to serve a very expensive cake...but none of the wait staff we encountered followed through with the instructions. We were seated at the wrong table where there were NO flowers and a belligerent female server who quipped, 'I have nothing to do with reservations!' when my wife informed her there were supposed to be flowers on our table. Moving to the correct table WAS a hardship for her disabled parents as there were stairs involved. Our waiter Peter was friendly but totally in the dark about the cake that was to be served. My wife had to repeat that request at the table in front of her parents. To add insult to injury, the icing on one side of this very expensive cake was all messed up. We just wanted someone to execute Ana's specific instructions...which were even left on the 'correct' table when we all arrived...I still have her notes. Hard to come to terms with this level of thoughtlessness.\n\nOne consolation and only one: The food was most delicious.

I have never been to this restaurant before but I saw a very positive review in the local Sun-Sentinel and we decided to go there to celebrate my wife's birthday. During the whole dining experience, from reception to paying for our bill there was never a mention of my wife's birthday. I know they were aware of the occasion as the slip of paper that they brought with them when they seated us clearly stated 'wife's birthday'. Obviously very disappointing for a restaurant that has been around for over 40 years and was supposed to have their act together.

Coming early (before 6 pm) helps to get a perfect table with the right view and exemplary service. Maitre'd and servers went out of their way to make us feel they would do anything to make us happy. We had a beautiful table in a floor-to-ceiling glass corner with perfect view of beach - also any of the tables in the open-air room on main floor and above on the open-air deck are prime for the beach experience. Many different rooms to suit your privacy and viewing preferences. We made a satisfying full meal entirely of appetizers. Fried calamari absolutely no grease. Stone crabs very competitively priced. Outstanding black bean soup. Wonderful seafood options, of course. Wish I had 3 stomachs. Sauteed mushrooms could have used a little oomph (used to be more garlicky). Great seeded bread.

There is something about the setting of this restaurant that sets it apart from everyplace else. The vibe of the quiet beach and the sand dunes brings everything up a notch in quality and healthfulness. There's a wide variety of food for anyone, even vegetarians (e.g., really good black bean soup) and the menu is classy without being stodgy. No problem finding decent wines, plus a lot of different areas to eat that each have a different mood - I especially like the downstairs room with the wide-open windows and of course the upstairs open-air deck, but we also were seated once by a huge picture window that was private and elegant. Front desk service is sometimes friendly, sometimes indifferent, but we've never had a bad server yet - they are friendly and know the menu. Food could be slightly less salty, that's my biggest complaint. A very unique spot that has deservedly been around for many years.

Ever since I've moved to Florida in the 80's I've wanted to try eating at Sea Watch. With it's rustic, multi-level South Florida construct and drop dead view of the Atlantic, the aesthetics can't be beat. Sit outside, inside on the patio, upstairs at the bar or where-ever, you will see the ocean. OK, I guess there are a few tables inside with no view for land lubbers.\nBut how is the food? Well, pretty good actually! I enjoyed the lobster bisque, boston wedge salad and grilled shrimp and scallops. All were delightful. My husband had the sirloin which was excellent. Both were served with grilled asparagus. Dessert for us was a shared creme brulee, done to perfection.\nSo whether you go for the view or for the food or for both, Sea Watch does not disappoint! \nPS - You can park your own car in their lot; not many oceanfront establishments boast their own free, self-park lots, but Sea Watch does!

I have been coming here since I was a child in the 70s and 80s. In recent years not very often but I was happy to see that it still looks the same and is very well maintained. Our server was personable, knowledgeable and professional. The portions were small but more realistic of true appetites . Cons- there was an unusual propane / oil burner smell in our area upstairs. Not necessarily a con but at 7:30 on a Saturday night, the average age of the crowd was 60 plus.

We chose Sea Watch for our Father's Day outing and it was the perfect choice for our adult party of six. The food was excellent (although the men chose the mahi special and found the portion smaller than they would have liked). Our server Cara was attentive and friendly and Mother Nature supplied a breezy temperature that made dining on the veranda extremely pleasant.\n\nMy only suggestion would be to improve the check-in procedure. We did not realize that the restaurant closes between 3:30 and 5pm and we arrived at 4:45 thinking we would just have a cocktail before our reservation at 5pm. I did not notice a bar area (nor did the hostess suggest one) so we waited in the lobby which quickly became very crowded and chaotic. There is no waiting area on the front porch and people just kept coming in and no one could be seated until the stroke of 5pm. It was truly only 20 minutes until we were shown to our table, but it was an uncomfortable 20 minutes jammed like sardines in a tin.

Sea Watch is an historic treasure nestled on the ocean front surrounded by development and high rise. Old Florida to be sure -- lots of tradition and great seafood. BUT needs coordination at the front desk. We had reservations, arrived on time and then had to wait 30 minutes. Reason given: they had seated walk-ins and gotten backed up. Lots of large parties added to noise level, and wait staff and kitchen overwhelmed due to chaos up front. \nI would go back but for a leisurely lunch and eat on one of the porches which seemed quieter.

This property is really special. The building is an original older structure with lots of character and fabulous views of the Atlantic. We sat in the covered patio which had open windows and fans throughout. There was a nice ocean breeze. UNFORTUNATELY, the food was very average. The fish was dry, vegetables even drier. I had a seafood medley - lobster tail was tiny, two scallops smaller than a quarter and two skinny shrimp. Bill was $150 and we didn't even have dessert. We stated in our reservation that it was our anniversary and they didn't even congratulate us. Too bad, I would have loved to take out-of-town friends to this location. Won't go again.

The orange roughy was delicious, as was the salad with shrimp and crab. The service was very good. If you want to dine leisurely, don't order everything at once. Next time we will have our drinks first, then order an app, and when we are done with that, order dinner. We ordered drinks and when they were delivered, the waitress took our dinner order. My husband's soup appeared literally within 2 minutes. We had barely taken a sip of our cocktails. Then he just put his spoon down from finishing the soup when the entrees were right at the table. I prefer a more leisurely, slow dinner, so if you do, order slowly!!! We were seated and ate and walking to our car in 1 hour. I was not impressed with the key lime pie, it was too sweet for me - if you like a tart key lime pie, this is not the place to get it. But the rest of the dinner was fabulous. Our waitress never asked if we wanted another drink , which we would have done, and also she did not ask if we wanted coffee/tea with dessert. Their loss on that!

A friend and I dined there on a Saturday evening. By good luck we were afforded a table with a beautiful view of the ocean and could watch the clouds out over the Gulf Stream become colorful as the sun set. The menu had a good selection so that most reasonable tastes could be accommodated and both of us felt the food was fine. Our 3 courses plus wine ran us about $120 with tip and I considered the level of food, service and ambience to be very fair for that price. The ambience reminds me of a modern version of an old sea-side restaurant. This is a place I bring out of towners. The only minus this time was that an adjacent table had a large group that was loud- but they were having a good time and there was a lot of them so who can complain.

First time at this restaurant and I must say I probably will never return... bread arrived cold as ice, menu was not the same as what is posted online.. didn't see what I had my mind on, had to wait at least 40 minutes for a table when my reservations were for 5pm without my accommodations that was listed on the reservation that I had a wheelchair individual attending, waitress was mediocre because she barely came to assist us but I guess because it was extremely busy being it was Father's day, the work load was overwhelming for her. On top of it all, after drinking our water, realized the bottom of the glass had black particles inside stuck to the bottom; can you say at this point totally and utterly disgusted.

Sea Watch is outstanding. We took a friend from outside of the area and he loved it. The ambience makes it special but the food and service set it a part from other restaurants in the area.

Few places have ocean view and this one not only has the view but really good (and reasonably priced) food to go along with it. Try to get seated on the porch where they keep windows on pullies up so you can get the gentle ocean breezes along with the great food and view. It's all good.

We used to take all our out-of-town guests to Sea Watch for both good food and unbeatable view. Then we sort of forgot about it for a while thinking its change of ambiance and menu was not to our liking. We recently went back with a guest for Sunday lunch and were pleasantly surprised to find that it was all of the good things we remembered from previous visits. View was spectacular, renovations did not change the windows with pulleys that let in the ocean breezes, some old favorites remain on the menu and prices are, if anything, lower than they were before--at least in comparison to current prices at other places with similar quality food. A change in decor appeared to be for the better and service was still friendly and caring. A totally good experience. This place is back on our 'go-to' list.

The food was excellent, from the chowder and bisque to the mussels to the paella---absolutely delicious. My compliments to the chef because the food was outstanding!!! The waiter was very hurried and forgetful--but hey, we all have bad nights. \n\nThe ambiance is okay. The 'outdoor' seating is not really outdoors. Its more like a deck with windows that are opened. And it is not directly on the water as might be implied by the Sea Watch name, but several hundred feet away from the water and the views of the water are obstructed by the building itself and/or landscaping. There is a very nice path you can walk to go see the water and the landscaping is nicely done. But if you want to be on the water, I'd suggest Shooters, which is where we went the night before and we were 10 feet from the water (not paid to say this, just want to give Shooters their props because they exceeded our expectations wildly). Be warned that SeaWatch is serious about no tank tops or t-shirts, at least for men. There were several women we saw with what amounted to tank tops or shirts/dresses that had sleeveless tops and they were apparently approved or okay to stay. But we saw the host turned away a party that had men in it with traditional tank tops.\n\nFor great food, you can't go wrong!!! For water-based ambiance and setting, there are better choices. But that said, the dining area is nice. Good for groups and foodies. We saw kids so assume kid-friendly. Not great ambiance for romance though.

We love Sea Watch and go often, a well run restaurant from front to back. The only reason we didn't give the highest rating for this visit as we allowed ourselves to be seated in the worst table in the house, every restaurant has to have one, this one in the back room by the kitchen door. The commotion distracts from a generally great place. Our fault for booking a Sat 8p reservation last minute.

My wife and I just got back from having dinner at the Sea Watch. The restaurant is beautiful and has a great view. Unfortunately that was the best thing about it. \nMy wife ordered the grilled shrimp and scallops. She was told that it came with carrots and asparagus. My wife doesn't like either of those and asked if she could substitute something else. All she wanted was something like corn (she saw that corn came with the lobster). She was told there were no substitutions at all. When her dinner arrived there were 4 scallops and 4 shrimp,... for $26, and the shrimp were cold, not chilled, cold.\nI ordered the conch fritters and the bouillabaisse. The fritters were mostly breading, very little conch. I've had fritters in the Bahamas and they were nothing like these. The first bite I could only taste the burnt breading on the outside. The bouillabaisse tasted good and hot. The only problem was that the broth was so hot that it overcooked the shrimp in it. It also had half a lobster tail still in the shell. I then had to pull the lobster out of the hot broth in order to get it out of the shell. Would have been nice if the lobster came already out of the shell. It did have enough seafood in it that I shared scallops, shrimps, and some lobster with my wife to make up for her lack of food.\nNot surprisingly, we won't be returning.

Side dishes - the carrots for example - were poorly done. Food was barely warm. Value was terrible. They charge top shelf prices for barely acceptable quality food. And the valets were AWOL, absent without leave. They stood at the far end of the parking lot discussing whatever while ignoring customers at the front door for 20 minutes. A totally disappointing meal that I drove 45 minutes each way for.

I've been going to Sea Watch for over 35 years. Recently, however, our experiences there have\nbeen less that what it used to be, from the food to the service. Our server this time, Paula, was more personable than most, which made the experience a bit enjoyable. The food that was served was good, but the portions were much smaller than before and the sides were changed. Just disappointing. Not sure how often we'll be frequenting Sea Watch in the future.

This was our second visit and I have to say the first was better, this one was good. We love the ambiance, the place has the best view around so regardless of how good or bad the food and service are, its well worth the price of admission. We had reservations at 7 and arrived timely but opted to go upstairs and have a drink with friends. We finally decided it was time to eat around 7:45 and went downstairs to see how long it would take to get a table. Lo and behold they had one for us immediately...cool! We loved the cornbread, had a fair Caesar Salad, and enjoyed the fried shrimp. I'm not that adventurous when it comes to eating stuff that swims so I had to rely on the others for their take on the fish. The Mahi Mahi didn't get raves but got overall good reviews, they said it was a very small portion but well prepared. The salmon was excellent and the pasta with goat cheese and chicken came out with shrimp instead which put a kink into the works. The server had an attitude when she was told that it was wrong, she distinctly heard shrimp not chicken (to her credit, I think I did too!) regardless, since the shrimp would have put the lady in the hospital they gladly took the dish back. The real problem, of course, was that 3 of us were eating and one was pissed. Oh well, mine was good. Key lime pie finished off the meal and was about an 8 overall. When you go, go early enough to enjoy the ocean, too late and its dark! We'll be back, after all, none of the restaurants around here are really that great, so when the view is the main attraction then get there in time to see it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary dinner at Sea Watch. The restaurant on the ocean Is the best we have found in the Fort Lauderdale area so far. We have been here a little more than a year and have dined at quite a few places and I believe this beats the others hands down. The view was spectacular, the service was impeccable and the food was delicious. What more could you ask for? Great Calamari, crispy and tender. My fried shrimp were excellent and my wife is still raving about the bulioubase (I'm sure I misspelled that, sorry). It was full of scallops, shrimp, mussels and lobster. I had an ear of corn that was great and my wife's stuffed bake potato was delicious. Overall it was a great dining experience and I would highly recommend it.

I left about 40 % of the dish,and my wife's lobster was dry and not tasty at all. BUT LET Me SAY IN ALL OUR YEARS , THIS IS THE VERY FIRST TIME WE DID NOT ENJOY OUR FOOD THERE.

The food was the best we've had there in a long time, our waitress was good but here helper was very rude. The she brought our food I told her she forgot a baked potato and she answered I only have 2 hands. Nothing special was done being it was my wife's 52 birthday.

Our group started out a the bar and had delicious mojitos and bloody marys. Then, many of us had the lobster and shrimp roll and it was delicious. It is a little pricey at $19 but we enjoyed it. They also have a new menu where each item is $11 and some of our group had the soup and sandwich. Our waiter, Anatolily was wonderful and he even honored our request to take a picture of our group.

The Sea Watch is a gem that has been around for generations. It sits on a perfect ocean front location with views that embrace old Florida. The chef is simply outstanding. Each course of our meal was better than the next. Rarely does one have each course out do the next. I travel frequently for both business and pleasure. Sea Watch is on my short list of places to return to when in the area. It's not a high end or fancy place. Come relax, enjoy the view, have GREAT food and service to boot. It's a place to enjoy your meal; don't rush through it. I recommend the crab cakes, Mac N Cheese and their corn bread. They are on a gourmet scale that had my pallet dancing all night.

Overall, the food was not anything spectacular. We tried a wedge salad and lobster bisque to start up and it was ok. We later tried the stone crab appetizer and it was just ok. We had the seafood special and it was 3 shrimps, 3 small scallops and a small lobsters. The shrimp were overcooked, the scallops smallest and the lobster was pretty good. The side was 2 little pieces of carrots and asparagus for 38 dollars. Finally, we had the chocolate raspberry for dessert and it was ok.\n\nI have tried different seafood in the Fort Lauderdale and I can easily think of 5 places with better food a similar or cheaper prices.

Our reservation was for 4 people at 5pm to take advantage of their special 'dinner at dusk' price fix menu. One guest and I arrived at 4:45, checked in and were given a pager. We were told the pager would go off when our table was ready. I said no problem, we'll wait at the upstair bar and our other guest will be there shortly. We ordered drinks and appetizers as the rest of my party arrived about 5:30p but the pager did not beep. In the interim our bar server said she would check on our table but said nothing. When I went to check myself, telling the manager my pager never beeped, he seated us immediately. Our waiter was very friendly, told us about the specials but said the 'dinner at dusk' menu is no longer available as it's now after 6. He tried to help, brought the manager over and I explained that we were all here at the bar but the pager never beeped and there was no information provided that the special menu order must be placed by 6p. He was quite adamant that he could not accommodate us. We considered leaving but decided not to let this disrupt our get together. The manager later told the waiter to give us free desserts. If you want to choose from the special 'dinner at dusk' menu, make sure they seat you and place your order before 6p.

The service was good but the food quality was not up to par with the other elements of the evening, my Lobster was slightly overcooked, the Conch chowder and Lobster bisque were bland and the portions were small considering the prices. It bothers me enough that I want to look for an alternative ocean side eatery but I'm not bothered enough to rule out coming back to Seawatch.

We have enjoyed this restaurant in the past years and have always recommended it to visitors when asking for seafood. We were excited about seeing paella on the menu and were sorely disappointed . It had non traditional seafood added and the rice was mushy. Expensive and not up to par. Service was mediocre - saving grace for the evening was the ocean view

It is absolutely beautiful restaurant right on the beach. It's a high end restaurant with great service. Our server was very attentive and friendly.

Picked this restaurant based on positive customer reviews and they were right. Three of us had the boullabaise and were not dissappointed.

While SeaWatch has a great location and their food quality has improved a lot over the last few years, that doesn't compensate for the expensive prices, especially for a restaurant that doesn't even have tablecloths. The food is certainly good, but $38 for 6 stuffed shrimp plated with 2 stalks of asparagus and a few roasted carrot slices is too high, especially since even salads and starches are a la carte items.\n\nLunch is a much better value.

We were pleasantly surprised by this authentic nautical charm next door to our new condo in Lauderdale by the Sea. We were seated outside and Paula was our server. She was sweet, efficient and professional. She suggested calimari which was a delicious app as well as the lobster bisque. My husband enjoyed lobster tail and I the salmon.

Food is usually very good or outstanding and service is frequently excellent. Sea Watch seems to book a lot of patrons for 5 p.m. It might be necessary to get one of the better tables but it doesn't seem to guarantee the perfect table. However, if you go at 5 p.m. navigating your way through the crowd around the front desk at times seems the equivalent of being in a rugby scrum. Other than that it's a great restaurant.

Sea Watch has been around for many years. It has a great variety of selections on its menu and the seafood medley is outstanding. Many tables have a great view. This is a favorite restaurant of ours. Something to keep in mind is most of the available reservation times are 5 and 5:15 p.m. or 7 or later which seems to be the way Sea Watch prefers to handle it's reservation process. Incidentally, it's better to go with a reservation. We arrived one weekday night in the fall and were told it would be an hour wait, we went somewhere else that night!

The food was excellent. The waiter was on the ball & very attentive. You need reservations during prime season. Sea Watch books an initial large amount of guests for 5 p.m. when they open for dinner. This results in everyone being packed into the waiting area & around the front desk. If you can get a later reservation you may be able to avoid this initial scrum which detracts from an otherwise enjoyable night.

When I asked for a table closer the gentleman answered in a most unfriendly manner that they do not guarantee the type of table. I know that but all he had to do was say he would see what he could come up with. There were several tables that became available within moments of our being seated at the back of the restaurant and immediately adjacent to the kitchen/Service area....not that appealing in that we were with a special guest for a celebration lunch.

The food is good, but there are no side vegetables with an entree. The available sides are non-healthy things like mac and cheese. After appetizer, entree, and dessert, I was hungry again by the time I got home. I didn't need more seafood, I just would have appreciated being able to get more than a garnish of asparagus with it. But there's a nice view and dependable seafood preparations.

We hadn't been here for awhile and friends were in town staying in Pompano Beach.. We decided to celebrate my wife's birthday here. It was confusing as we checked in .. young ladies at reception area, no one could find our reservation.. Finally older lady said 2 of the party were seated upstairs..instead of escorting us up, they said just go up. I though it had been remodeled, but apparently not upstairs. We found ourselves having to speak loudly..took WAY to long to get a drink. Appetizers came up in good time, however calamari was cold not hot. The young lady took our dinner order, took a while. Again,,,food was NOT HOT WHY NOT??? The flavor was lost because of the temperature of the food...I ordered prime rib..disappointed in cut of meat..looked more like pot roast.\nOverall, VERY disappointed almost to the point that i was embarassed to have brought our friends to this restaurant. I think the best part of this restaurant would be the view..if after a reservation ahead, you were lucky enough to get a seat downstairs near the window.\n\nNot a big dea...but they did not even offer a complimentary 'Birthday' dessert to my wife.\n\nNeedless to say, we wont be back :(

My girlfriend and recently dine here in season and were extremely dissatisfied with the overall experience. We sat outside and there was a large group directly behind us that was overly loud, not their fault as large groups often are. However, the restaurant made no effort to create any noise barriers to acoustic dampeners and hearing each other talk was a struggle. The couple beside us shared a similar concern. This said our primary disappointment was the quality, quantity and freshness of the seafood we received. We started with Oysters and though small were good. For entrees my girlfriend ordered the Swordfish which came out cold and needed to be sent back and I ordered their featured Seawatch Medley which contained Lobster, Shrimp and Scallops. As there featured I honestly expected much more, the portions were undersized and there was no accompany vegetable or starch included. \r\n\r\nI dine out regularly and very rarely feel this disappointed in a meal. Also, this place is on the water however has no exterior lighting so you can't even see the ocean that's just feet away.

Sadly, our experience at Sea Watch was not positively memorable. We have eaten at this establishment in the past and found it quite good; but things have changed. I had made reservations a week earlier on Open Table and specifically asked for a table next to a window with a beach view. We received neither. We were at a table inside in the middle of a room where the view was a parking lot. I do not know if Open Table is to blame for this or the restaurant (does it prove more beneficial calling the restaurant directly?) Yet, what was the most disappointing was the service. Our server was not attentive, helpful, and in a rush. It seemed as if she was running away from the table once she got there. Several times we had to ask the busboy to bring her to us. The food was a mixed bag. The Seafood Tower appetizer is no longer a 'tower' rather presented on large plate. The 4 oysters were small, the clams were fishy (not fresh?) and the rest 4 shrimp, 3 crab legs and small portion of crab meat were fine, but menial. This appetizer is not worth $39.00. The entree proteins were prepared well and flavorful (prime rib, lobster, scallops and shrimp). The asparagus/carrot side was absolutely unacceptable, however. The roasted carrot was rubbery and some were too tough to eat. The asparagus was significantly over roasted as well: it was akin to eating a shoe string. The desserts were a disappointment as well. The Chocolate Mousse brownie was very flavorful, but the brownie was chewy and dry. The Key lime pie was not even properly defrosted... a few bites were frozen. As I penned earlier, we have visited this establishment many times in the past decade plus. Next year, dinner at Sea Watch will not be on our list. We will find another restaurant that respects its clientele.
