Sea Watch is a local institution with a long history of fine dining in a prime beachfront restaurant. We make annual trips to the area and try to eat here at least once during our visit. Food and service is excellent, with specializing on seafood without limiting other choices. Not overly expensive for upscale dining. Frequent good deals on lunch... More

We were disappointed with the actual menu when we got there. We didn't see a lot of things that we saw on the website. The food was okay. Nothing spectacular. Wouldn't come back unless there was nothing else available. The view is the only thing I would give a thumbs up for.

This might be the most dismal meal I have ever had in 4 years of living in Fort Lauderdale....salad consisted of a slight handful of very lonely greens, one olive, one pecan and two cubes of cheese. I observed my neighbors received salads that appeared much healthier. Then, on to the most tasteless, overcooked lobster tail ever.....truly deplorable...

Visited Sea Watch restaurant on multiple occasions and never disappointed! Great water views. The staff has always been polite and very attentive. The food is excellent to say the least. My friends and I have ordered quite a variety of appetizers and entrees and never had a problem. I've read some of the other reviews and it seems that most... More

Never tasted fresh seafood like I had in Sea Watch- The place was mobbed on late Wednesday evening. All guests from Seniors, children, to members of a large birthday part were all treated with the same professionalism and sincere goal of making your dinner memorable. I especially noticed a large party with an older child with disabilities-the staff showed so... More

Food was o.k. but too expensive for size of servings. The staff was very snobbish and rude. The service was terrible. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

This restaurant is one of the finer seafood places in Southeast Florida. The food is fantastic and the service is great. It's a little pricey but wonderful.

We got there early, usually don't have dinner at 5 but since we were driving by decided to go and glad we did. They have a 3 course dinner for early birds between 5 and 6 with a good selection including dessert and beverage (coffee or tea). Wait staff was excellent and attentive, the ocean view was awesome.

Have been going here on visits to Florida since 1988. Their food is always well prepared. You can't beat the location and the view of the ocean. Had a great fresh mahi. Service was great. They have an $11 lunch menu with interesting choices as well.
