Glad we tried it

The quality of the food and presentation were of a high quality. Service was friendly, but a little slow for our taste. Only real negative - extremely noisy. Still, we'll go back.

We have gone to Seagrass on several occasions and the food is always good.. This is our second time dining on a Monday. They open for dinner at 4 pm and both times we arrived shortly after four only to be told they are still deciding on their specials for the night. Our most recent visit we were told they... More

I went here for lunch yesterday and I was so glad I did because the food is amazing here. I'm not kidding. Let me start from the beginning. The restaurant is located on the main street in Ocean Grove and it's small, but it doesn't feel small when you're in there. The walls are painted in blues and grays and... More

Weekends especially in the Summer are crowded, best times are weekdays for lunch or dinner. Outdoor tables are perfect to people watch, but take it inside off season or on hot, humid days. For lunch The lobster BLT is delicious with crisp bacon and delicious lobster chunks seasoned just right. NEW ENGLAND clam chowder is thick and rich and good... More

Let me start off by saying that my friends and I only go to BYOB restaurants, so we usually find ourselves in Red Bank or Asbury Park. Someone suggested SeaGrass and I was cautious - fine dining in Ocean Grove? Heck yes! The atmosphere was fun (although sometimes loud when it was packed) and the wait staff were wonderful. Everything... More

Wonderful seafood served in a beautiful restaurant. SeaGrass is the go-to place for dinner here in Ocean Grove. I had the scallops, and they were done to perfection. During the off-season, Mondays are half price for dinner and the tables fill up very quickly. Be patient, it's worth it!

Seagrass is the best restaurant in Ocean Grove. The atmosphere is great and the food selection is superb. Best of all, it is BYOB so you get to bring your favorite wine. No reservations but the wait is rarely excessive.

Polite, but slow service. Bottled water almost as expensive as wine (which they don't serve, it being Ocean Grove—a dry township.) Can be very noisy, though we were there on a slow night.

For a high end restaurant, I have to give kudo's to SeaGrass for providing a few entree's, ahem, on the lower economic scale. On my first night, my bowl of noodle soup with shrimp and scallop- was mediocre. Broth was under seasoned, it needed more flavor. I tried adding butter, hot sauce, pepper, but the broth could not be saved.... More
