I recently had lunch at the Sea Grille patio with my family in town visiting. It was fantastic! We ordered a salad and the swordfish for entrees - both delicious with great presentation! The service was great too. The server was cheerful and professional; she checked on us several times with appropriate timing between visits always offering additional assistance. The... More

Been there many times with visiting friends....The location is divine..Better to stay outside and stroll..The food is so expensive..$17 for a not-special hamburger...Drink prices are outrageous and the food is not special...Small portion..gourmet prices..The best part is the architecture of the exterior building..Save your money for Friday nights outside where they have free movies on a barge next to Rowes...

I was proud to score a reservation at this waterfront restaurant during a very busy summer weekend (the Hermione was in town for the weekend as were loads of tourists). The restaurant has lots of outdoor seating right on the beautiful Rowe's wharf. It was a hot night so we chose to sit inside and there were, surprisingly, lots of... More

The Rowes Wharf Sea Grille is a beautifully decorated restaurant with a lovely patio. We opted for breakfast there on a Sunday morning and were nonplussed. I thought the prices were very high for a completely average menu - eggs, omelets, French toast, nothing particularly unique or fantastic. I will say that the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Berries were delicious,... More

Lovely spot for afternoon tea in the indoor dining room with a view onto the patio. The "tea" consists of petit sandwiches, several varieties of scones, and mini desserts in assorted chocolate and fruit varieties, served in a tiered stand on a table strewn with rose petals. Over 12 types of tea (including some decaf options), plus a small selection... More

This is one of best seats at Boston harbor. Spectacular outdoor dining or just cocktails. Loud soft music echoing throughout the entire place. We informed the waitress that we only had 25 minutes to have a drink and an appetizer. The place is packed, but we got our drinks and appetizer within 5 minutes. It had to be the quickest... More

Great location and the red sangria was really good but otherwise it was just okey, especially considering the cost. I ordered the turkey club and it was light on the turkey. My husband's lobster roll was good but he's had better for less money.
