We celebrated our anniversary at 18 Seaboard, and it was a wonderful experience. The food is fresh, delicious and the staff is knowledgeable, friendly and service is prompt. My wife absolutely craves the chocolate mug cake. She wants to go back just for dessert! No wonder we seem to return to 18 Seaboard again and again...

I have eaten both lunch and dinner at 18 Seaboard. The wait staff is very knowledgeable, professional and they provide exceptional service. The quality of food and its preparation are remarkable. The she-crab soup is a must have if you like crab meat. The atmosphere is semi-formal during lunch and slightly more formal during dinner. In either case, the environment... More

Recently ate here with a group of 16. Food and service were really great. Our every need was well taken care of from our arrival to departure. We dined in the private dining room. Felt that we were in our own private restaurant. We had a mix of food from all sections of the menu. Everyone said there food was... More

We celebrated our daughters birthday at 18 Seaboard and it could not have been more perfect. The tuna tasted like it was caught this morning and cooked exactly the way I love it. The beef brisket tender and flavorful. Peach cobbler with lemon ginger ice cream was enough to bring me back. Our server, Chris, did a great job guiding... More

We came to try this restaurant since we were in town and we had heard it was great. We had an amazing experience. I had the filet and my husband ordered the pork shank. Both were delicious and cooked perfectly with great flavor. I also had the she crab soup which was awesome. We ordered dessert after our waitress told... More

18 Seaboard is our go-to restaurant when our grown children visit from San Francisco, New York and now Dallas. The food is custom prepared to our specifications, with innovative touches, so even as many times as we have dined here, we never get tired of the offerings. The service is polished and friendly, with lagniappes offered to introduce us to... More

This was a wonderful selection for Ladies' Night Out! We had a wonderful time and the food selection was excellent! I ordered the Pork Shank and grits, I believe the grits would have been better served as cheese grits, however the dish was wonderful! I'm looking forward to the Christmas desserts! If you arrive before the rest of your party,... More

We have dined several times at 18 Seaboard the past few years and and our recent visit was the most memorable. The Amberjack special I had was excellent. The fish was charboiled just the way I like it, very fresh, a bit dry and flaky. There is a choice of several toppings but I use toppings sparingly with a little... More
