Have eaten at the Sea Grill numerous times. Well worth the money. Service dependable and the salad bar simply terrific. It gets a four from me simply because it can be loud and the tables are closely situated. The bar adjoins the restaurant and that adds to the noise level on some nights. Certainly the downside does not ruin the... More

I simply do not understand the wonderful reviews of this restaurant. It is REALLY expensive, not very well prepared, mediocre service with a completely lousy salad bar. Service in Humboldt County is always a crap-shoot, but I have eaten a lot of seafood in my life, all over the world, and considering the quality of the fish available in this... More

My wife and I spend a fair amount of time in the Eureka/Arcata/Trinidad area, and have dined at Sea Grill several times. It has been a good experience each time, which is what makes it close to the top of our list every evening. You can usually get a good idea of what to expect from a restaurant by the... More

Seafood was fresh--had it oven broiled. Salad bar had good quality ingredients. Staff were courteous/friendly. One star off for ambiance but I would definitely go back there.

Lovely restaurant located in Eureka's Old Town. I ordered the grilled seafood platter - a couple of shrimp and scallops, calamari that was not very tender and a medley of fish that was fine - but, expected more seafood, for the price, to be honest. My partner, however, had fantastic butterfly breaded prawns and we both loved the local "Lost... More

Expected more and was disappointed with the food and service. The food was overpriced for nothing special or memorable. It was not a repeatable experience. My husband and I left wondering why it seemed so popular.

The luncheon was elegant, the atmosphere quiet, and food was wonderful! That day's specials were potato dishes. While I don't remember the one I ordered, I do remember wanting to taste it again! Don't miss this restaurant!

We went on a Saturday evening so this may be the reason for the 40 minute wait. But a longer wait usually means a good meal, which it was. You will have to be patient as getting our meal also took a long time. A very large menu to choose from, most appeared very fresh. Probably not the best choice... More

this has been an excellent restaurant for years. Holly is a gracious hostess, the staff is friendly and the food is fresh and superb. The place is NOT overpriced at all. I can highly recommend it, you will never be sorry. Try to make reservations, because the place fills up quickly. Mister D.

Stopped here based on TripAdvisor reviews. The server was welcoming and friendly and offered recommendations. The wine menu had plenty of choice. On reading earlier reviews, we had heard great things about the salad bar and had thought "How great can a salad bar really be?" - this salad bar was delicious with so much choice that I could have...
