Interesting Way to Eat Out!

Great place! Once you're seated, the server greets you, takes your drink order, and if you're a first time visitor...explains how to order your food. When you're ready, you go up to a window, read the menu off a chalkboard, and order right from the chef. After you order, you make your salad from... read more

talk about a cold Salad Station, this place is a ten on iced crocks and washed, clean salad selections. Steaks and fish selections always piping hot, great wine list, speedy service, and really low frills. Seriously high food quality and freshness.

I love the Sea Grill! My friends and I cone here every year when we are in Stone Harbor for our annual Girls' Weekend. The pistachio-crusted halibut is divine! And all of the sides are delicious. We always end up stuffed! To top it off, the peanut butter pie is amazing! It does get a little pricey because all of... More

This is not an inexpensive place, but the food is fantastic. We visit every year when on our annual Jersey Shore vacay. Steaks and prime rib were super and the salmon was exquisite! Their salad bar is extensive as well. Of all the places we've gone to for the past three years, this is by far, the best.

At this time of the year there are very few restaurants open in Avalon. We decided to eat at the Sea Grill. Your entree comes with a salad bar. Entrees are very pricey. A bit skimpy on the sides.you order.The jumbo lump crab cake was stringy crab not lump,very watery,lots of filler. Three out of six people had just ok... More

Order your food directly from the chef from a chalk board menu on the wall. Not much time to make a choice especially when there are people waiting behind you. Thought it was overpriced for the quality of the meal.

I went here for my birthday dinner with husband and a couple of family members. It's a great place where you order at the kitchen and your meal is brought to you. I had the three small lobster tails. Scrumptious. H had the scallops, delicious, he said. Sides were asparagus, twice baked potato, baked sweet potato, and a stop at... More

We have made it a point to come here every time we visit Stone Harbor. It's a very short drive into Avalon and well worth it. We have affectionately referred to this as the "Chalk Board" restaurant. That's because the menu is listed on a chalk board and you order off it it directly to the chef who will prepare... More

I wasn't crazy about the whole ordering at the counter thing - I like sitting and relaxing and being catered to when I go out!! But you are apparently ordering from the chefs and you can ask questions or whatever - and then you go through the salad bar line. After that, you are being served and the service was... More
