Althougt I had no fishmeal, it was a great presentation of the kitchen. I ordered grilled aritichoke as an appetizer, which was really excellent. No only boiled in salted water, the artichoke had been boiled in a mixture of herbs, cut in halve, got the hey removed and grilled. The taste with some hebes and paprika butter was fantastic. The...

Came to try this place based on top 5 review. We anticipated to get fresh seafood. When we ordered seafood in a coastal town & the waitress confirmed they were fresh & the price indicate "top knotch" we should get what we expected. Oysters were good. Dungenes crab & Ling cod were stinks, slimy & unappealing. Even the french fries... More

I admit, I'm now a native of Eureka having lived here since 1980. As a NC southerner, born and bred, my fish experiences were horrible, out-of-the-can recipes that would stink up the whole house. In short, I hated fish until I moved here. One thing you can be sure of is fresh fish on the coast. SEA GRILL has always... More

My wife's salmon was exquisite, I had the Ling cod which was outstanding. The service was excellent, and the quality of the food was above board. I look forward to dining at the Sea Grill again.

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.
