the menu is sufficiently varied that everyone can find something to eat. Notably lacking is a focus on lobster. The seafood platter is enough to fill you up and has a fantastic variety of shell fish (except lobster) and fish to make it memorable. My litmus test is the clam chowder and as a "Maine Down Eastah" I am hyper... More

We went here for dessert and a few drinks after dinner. We had the hot chocolate cake which was really good and came with delicious ice cream. We also had 2 glasses of wine which came recommended from our server Adrian. He was extremely knowledgeable and told us about wine pairings they do. There's also a great view. We'll definitely...

In Boston Harbor Hotel right on the water. Nice business dinner in the blizzard. Nively decorated with ship paintings. Nice bar. Excellent fresh oysters and a nicely grilled wild striped bass. Excellent service.

The Sea Grille is located on Rowe's Wharf and offers attractive views of Boston Harbor from the dining room. Our meal was quite good. Salmon and hanger steak. We each also had a cocktail, and they were excellent. The prices were what you might expect from an upscale restaurant in a major city. We also split a dessert and ordered... More

The service, atmosphere and food are all top notch. Get a seat by the window which has a great view of Boston Harbor. Entrees are generally between $25-$30 and the serving sizes are decent. Most dishes have straight forward seasoning/sauces, e.g., food is not buried in sauces. This is not a negative just an approach that is a little different.... More

What a horrible experience. We had reservations for afternoon tea, however, were met with a snooty hostess and host who asked us to wait...which we did, patiently. After seating several others both with and without reservations, went back to the hostess station to inquire about our ability to be served. We were again asked to wait. After 20 minutes of... More
