We chose to ear here for dinner based on other reviews but didn't have the same experience. Food was not very good and was cold. Overrated for the price for sure.

The food is good as is the service. Great views of the harbor. The pier is a fun walk to view the fishermen.

We followed the signs to this restaurant and sure are glad we did! The restaurant faces the pier and is adjacent to the beach were elephant seals rest. If you get a table facing the water, the restaurants offers free use of binoculars for you to explore the marine life sightings here. The food was average and fairly priced. The... More

For the past few years, friends and relatives have suggested the Seascape Restaurant for lunch or dinner when I visit Humboldt County. Located at the pier in Trinidad it has a nice view of the bay and the atmosphere of a traditional, cozy local seafood restaurant. Overall, I find the food pretty average. The clam chowder is very good, but... More

Get the clam chowder .. excellent. The ambiance -- terrific. Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner -- this place has good food, good service and a great environment. After your food take a walk along the pier between the bluff's ... watch as the fisherman work .... place to stop on your trip.

Between the Clam chowder and the french bread we had a great lunch. The scenery was beautiful also. Had a nice walk along the Pier afterwards. Definitely a place to visit.

I'm a sucker for waterfront dining, but this place is going to make me swear off it. For the price, you can go to Larrupin (an incredible place we found the next night). For taste, you're MUCH better off with a sandwich from filet-of-fish lake (McDonalds). I'm just in disbelief how bad this place was, and wish we'd have walked... More

The Seascape has an exelant location and views on the Pier and a small view of the Trinidad bay. That is the only thing going for this place. we order just water to start as a drink. the water was very very bad tasting. like something dies in the water. there was no smell to the water, but I have...

Came here with my husband on a trip seeing the redwoods and driving around brought us near to Trinidad. We were hungry and stopped at this diner by the ocean. We got seated in a booth near the windows. Binoculars are hanging on the wall by these booths for your use to look for whales, birds or any other wildlife.... More
