The Sea Grill always lives up to expectations. Simple meat or seafood, cooked right. The salad bar has a good variety of crisp veggies to choose from and drinks are top notch.

Laughter and good times always fill the bar and dining room of the Sea Grill. The outstanding beef and seafood entrees are worth celebrating. A bountiful self-serve salad bar is included with every meal. Everything else is "a la carte" and ordered through a counter window separating the kitchen from the dining room. The chalkboard menu features various cuts of... More

There were six of us and between us we had 5 different dishes. Everyone enjoyed their food. The decor is nice and the atmosphere is festive (loud). We had fun. With that said, it is way overpriced even for good beech food. $40 for their specials with rolls (that we good) and an average salad bar .. no sides included.... More

Our server was great and the decor was charming! The concept of this style of ordering and eating was very unusual. I should explain we were there with a party of eight and the restaurant was half full. We can't even imagine what it's like when it is busy. In a tiny (yes, tiny) nook of the dining area there...

We've been to the sea grill every year we vacation in Avalon. The service is good. The seafood is consistent and I like the way you get to order your meal direct from the kitchen. It spices up the meal.

We dined at Sea Grill for the first time in several years and had a delightful dinner. The ordering here is a bit different from most restaurants but works fine. You take your table's blank check to the kitchen window and order then go to the salad bar and wait for the servers to bring your entree and sides. Our... More

Read the reviews, but still wanted to try this place. Had an enjoyable evening, not rushed, great service and after an entrée mishap, management went out of their way to accommodate. As other reviewers have said, ordering your meal is interesting but enjoyed it. had steaks, fillets and prime rib and a bunch of sides. Satisfied on all counts. Only... More

Second visit and probably last. The ordering system makes no sense and creates traffic issue for servers and customers alike.If that is to be the system the why not have two windows, one for ordering and one for pick up. The salad bar is mediocre and worthy of only one to be found in an old grocery store.It is poor... More

Went to dinner here last weekend. Entire staff was friendly. Place was packed but they were able to seat us quickly with our child. Good was great but in my opinion overpriced. I understand it's typical of Avalon though.
