Food was very good, and the service was excellent. We enjoyed the meatloaf and the shrimp and grits, both were some of the best we have had anywhere. The service was very friendly and professional.

My wife and I visited here on Friday evening, February 17. The bar and restaurant ambience is pleasant but not outstanding. For appetizers we tried the oysters fried in cornmeal and they were excellent, as were the cheeseball apps. My wife ordered the brisket with collards and bacon. While the collards were very good (I sampled them too), she reports... More

My wife and I attended this restaurant as a pre-Valebtines Day getaway. Prior to dining at this restraint, we previously knew nothing about it.

Jason Smith, the chef and proprietor, serves a beautiful meal in a fun downtown atmosphere. There is also meeting and private party space where food and service and parking are great!

18 Seaboard delivers consistently good food in the most delightful environment - one can actually hear one's dinner companions speak in a normal tone of voice.

18 Seaboard has been a pillar of the renaissance of fine dining in downtown Raleigh. You can expect good service, very tasty Southern cooking, and a gracious atmosphere. Not as adventurous as some of the other restaurants in downtown, but well worth your visit!

I went here for a business lunch and the burger was outstanding - outstanding bun, great meat, and it is large - so it will fill you up!

I heard such good things but I found the meal to be just so so and not worth the price. Nice wine list though but also expensive even for a glass.

Here with a group. We had a nice room with three large round tables, good for conversation. Food was excellent; I had the Pompano with creole sauce on rice and found it very good.
