Avalon and Stone Harbor are absolutely the best shore town family experience but finding an edible, never mind good, meal is a challenge. On the pricey side but nice atmosphere, small ,but fresh ,salad bar consistently good beef and shrimp (some of the fish not so much). Jerk pork chop is always a choice for me. Don't expect The Palm... More

We love the location of this restaurant but find the food to be average. We were not a fan of going up to the kitchen to order your food given the price of everything. Everyone raves about the fish dinners.

very unimpressed with a recent visit. In years past this establishment enjoyed an excellent reputation, but things seem to be slipping. Prices are high as compared to other competition and it is NOT a BYOB establishment.

Sea grill always has quality meats and cooks them right. We ate at the bar and enjoyed the lobster soup with crab... (Why not lobster soup with lobster?) and clam chowder. Chopped green onions made an appearance in everything they served to us... For an appetizer, I tried the teriyaki skewers 6 bite sized chunks which were sub par with... More

We like to visit this wonderful eatery at least once every year when visiting the area. This year we had filets and crab cakes, delish! There's always a bit of a wait, which speaks for itself. Salad bar is good. Service - wonderful!

Went with family and friends. We were able to call ahead for seating for 8 people which was nice. It was very loud inside we could not hear each other from one end of the table to the other. The food was good but way overpriced. Dinners foo not come with sides, only the salad bar. Sides are pricey too.... More

We have been going to the sea grill for years! Sad to say over the years it has changed so much not the same anymore. Dry steak portions are smaller and food quality is very poor. Drinks are still good but not worth spending the money
