I was very specific about my allergy and the man who took my order assured me that they would leave off the sauce. When I got my filet mignon, I took two bite before I realized there was sauce on it. (its dark in there) so I sent it back. I had already put my potato on the plate. When... More

Once you're seated at the Sea Grill (In the summer that can take 30-45 minutes), the waitress takes your drink order and then invites you to stand in line at the kitchen window to place your food order. After ordering your entree and sides (all a la carte), you then hit the salad bar and return to your table. Ten... More

Have visited repeatedly since it is walking distance from our place in Avalon. Each time I swear I won't return. The food is average, the wait long, and the service fair. I am not going to retry this year. I say that every year!!!

Everyone is trying to be the next best thing. It's very comforting to go to the a Sea Grill. You know what you will get. The salad bar is always fresh and good. I find going up yo order a bit odd but ... The bar is fun, the drinks are good, they have a good wine list. I love... More

Everything about the Sea Grill is spectacular…the service, ambiance, salad bar, variety of entrees! Seafood dishes, fowl, and steaks are all amazing. We went with a large group and everyone loved their meal. The service was attentive without being annoying. You won't find anything better in Avalon.

Wow!! What a disappointment! I had surf and turf and my wife had a filet and it was terrible. It was possibly the worst steak I ever had. Even the sides were terrible. No taste, very bland! Very very pricey for the worst meal I think we ever had. Very disappointing!

The waitstaff and the management are very pleasant. The atmosphere if the restaurant is great.... Slightly upscale, but still comfy. The idea that you have to walk up to the kitchen to place your order is odd. It kind of takes away from the social aspect of discussing what is in the menu. The food itself is great, but extremely...

This is a very nice restaurant but way too expensive! I like that they are open year round, but had to stop going here because of the cost. You pay even more for all sides! The service is excellent. Food is very good. Only on one occasion did my husband have to send the filet back since it was too... More

The Sea Grill is unusual in that you take your check up to a window to order and pick up your salad from a salad station on your way back to the table. Those who want to be waited on from start to finish mY be put off by this, but give it a chance. The atmosphere at the bar... More

I really like that when you walk in you can go right up to the cooks and order, followed by grabbing a good salad from the salad bar. As for the food, it's fairly priced by Avalon standards, but it's only good, not great. That being said it's one of the must go places during your vacation.
