Good food, great views!

Delicious, though pricey, breakfast/brunch. Lovely setting looking out on the harbor and boats. Very friendly and helpful server, John.

First, before you even talk about the food, be aware of how they do business. -Wanted to sit on the patio for dinner and entertainment -they don't take reservations for the outside patio, but wink wink, if you make a reservation for 5:00pm for inside, and there are tables on the patio when you check in...you can request a seat...

I almost didn't write a review of our experience at the Sea Grille yesterday, but I need to be honest with myself that it was completely average, at best.

This place is SUPERB, the ambiance, the food, the prices and service just superb. Initially when we sat down it took about 10-15 minutes for the server to come by to take our drink order, but that would be the only "complaint" I would have. I ordered a shrimp cocktail, 5 large shrimp with a accompanying small salad, very good.... More

Dining room, cold and lacking personality, had to get moved from table close to a door. Callimari was average, bass was tough and only warm.

We spent a lovely Friday evening on the Harborwalk Terrace and at watched an outdoor movie to boot. This is one of the finest waterfront locations in the city and has a wonderful buzz. It is especially nice because the restaurant is expecting you to stay for the movie so you don't get the typical Boston "bums-rush" from the waitress.... More
