Always look forward to dining here

We are always pleased with our meal. The food is fresh and flavorful. Being from NYC we dine out often yet this is a favorite place out of the city.

I've been there for lunch and dinner. Both were excellent. Perfectly done burgers and homemade potato chips that are to die for. Sea scallops were fresh and cooked to perfection. Professional staff. There is no other restaurant in Ocean Grove that comes close.

I've been coming to Seagrass since it was Captain Jack's and the food is always consistent and tasty. The staff always remembers us and is friendly. Portions are huge. It is clean and has a wonderful atmosphere. Highly recommended!

Cold atmosphere, like they're trying to be something they're not. Totally unimpressed. Menu was okay. Better restaurants a brief walk away.

I ate here last year during the holidays and the décor was just absolutely stunning. I probably could have had cardboard but wouldn't have cared!

Wow. Not sure what happened in the past two months but this was a poor experience. Perhaps we should have not been surprised as each time we've visited int he past 6 months the experience has eroded little by little. Our server was sweet and meant well, but very inexperienced. Among other things, after asking if I wanted an ice... More

We have been going to this restaurant for years. It was called Captain Jacks prior. It is a very popular place and extremely busy especially in the summer season. They also have outdoor seating in the summer. They do dot accept reservations in the summer and the wait can be an hour or more on the weekend. They do accept... More

Dinner on a rainy blustery December Saturday night. Our waitress, Pam, advised us on entrée choices. My husband and I shared clams on the half shell in an incredible garlic buttery/olive oil sauce. Finger licking good. He had the sea scallops in a tomato risotto and I had the Orrecchietti pastai with scallops, shrimp, mussels and creamy tomato sauce. On... More

I went Hear with my wife and daughter. We got the chips with the cheese for an appetizer, the claim chowder soup for a starter and then for the entrees we shared the crab cakes and the striped bass. All was excellent. Best claim chowder I have ever ate. Would have given 5 stars but the service could have been... More
