Not sure what to say

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... read 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.

A friend recommended this restaurant and that we order the Surf n Turf. The steak was quite good and the lobster tails were absolutely fantastic. We also had the salad bar which a good range of fresh selections and some really good dressings made on site. Our server, Deneen, gave us good advice on ordering and was knowledgeable about the...

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.
