Great outdoor seating for a late breakfast with friends. Bloody Marys hit the spot as well. Staff was attentive. My french toast was yummy and everyone else devoured their orders as well.

The best (and most cheerful) service was from the guy who pumped our gas into our golf cart. The new outdoor bar is beautiful but was in the late stages of being complete. Still, with a bar in a destination location such as this, they will often have one chance to make a good impression with cheerful and fun service.... More

Hi Jeffrey, I appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review, as its only through feedback like this that we can note our faults and make steps to correct them. You're absolutely right, we only get one chance to leave a first impression. I'm glad you found our dock staff to be friendly, but concerned and disappointed that... More

We have been coming to the small tiki bar for years and were very surprised to see the huge new digs just being finished up. We had a good salad and club sandwich for lunch. I think we can expect great things out of Sea Spray. Let's see how it goes.

Thanks for taking a moment to leave us some feedback. We're very proud of the new "Garbonzo Dockside Bar & Grill", and once we begin serving food from the outdoor kitchen, we think it'll be greater still! Thanks again and we look forward to your next visit (= More

I think we were probably being served by a very new trainee who had not had any training. Wine plonked down on table etc. The lasagne was passable, the wine OK, but the room lacked any character and was dominated by a large TV over the bar.

Sorry you didn't enjoy your experience! You're very astute in that we have a large number of brand new staff in training due to the impending opening of our new outdoor bar / restaurant complex. Regardless, your service should have been better. Hopefully on your next visit you'll come back and enjoy all the new amenities we're working on. I... More

Whether it's breakfast, lunch, dinner or after hours at the bar a good time is sure to be had at Sea Spray. My husband and I spend 12-15 weekends a year enjoying all that this resort has to offer. The marina is the best location in the central Abacos, offering great protection and easy access to the fishing grounds. The... More

Eden is the new chef here and we went because someone recommended it. I had eaten there once or twice on previous trips and it was nice but I felt it has come along a bit.
