Average food

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

Went with relatives who frequent this restaurant every year. Our first visit. Fairly expensive and I was put off by the way food is ordered. You have to go to a small three walled area where the menu board is. You place your table order there. You don't see there are specials until you notice smaller board at order window.... More

Great food, nice atmosphere and fantastic service! You order yourself at a window type set up / then they bring everything out to you. Great steaks, seafood and wine list!

I enjoyed the crabcakes, and considering how pricey they were, am pleased to say they were almost pure crab - no fillers. Very nice. Others in my family had the filet which they really enjoyed. The sides (everything is a la carte) were plentiful, and the salad bar was fresh, although I think it would benefit from more options. All... More

I have been going to the Sea Grill for years. Our dinner there last Saturday was perfect as usual. The funky ordering process is part of the charm. They have the best wine list on the island. It is not cheap, but it is always worth it. Napa ambiance on the Jersey Shore.

Nice meal at the Grill. I love the salad bar and my dinner was very good. I had the shrimp, which is not my normal. It was very good. The drinks were excellent and the service very good. My companion had the chicken Marsala, which she enjoyed.
