This was our first time at this restaurant and we were very happy with everything about it. The food was amazing. The atmosphere was quiet and comfortable enough for conversation with our friends at the table. Our server Harriet was so nice, gave us great...recommendations, she was very polite, professional and attentive. Someone with the restaurant (maybe a manager) saw me fanning myself and came over and asked if I would like the ceiling fans turned on and I declined stating I wouldn't want it to be too cool for everyone else, but she did it any way. I was thankful for that. Hot flashes are no fun. I heard good things before going and it lived up to my expectations and more.More

We really enjoyed lunch here. Went on a weekday around 1 p.m. and there were only about 10 others dining. Very clean and nicely decorated. Service was very good and attentive. I ordered the chicken salad special and was pleasantly surprised at the variety of...vegetables and fruits. Lemon vinegarette was delicious. My spouse had the blue cheese burger and really enjoyed it....lots of cheese and good fries, too. We recommend you give it a try.More

Excellent little restaurant in Ocean Grove - right on the main drag. Offers both inside and outside seating. Service was fantastic and the food was wonderful. I had the seafood pasta dish - perfectly cooked and seasoned. My wife had the ahi tuna which she...enjoyed (though she was not a fan of the wasabi potatoes - which I thought were great LOL).More

The French fries were amazing. The key lime pie was pretty good Everything else was bland and under seasoned. The oysters were going and should not have been served. Steaks were overcooked . The bread that they charge for came out after the appetizers. Because...they don’t take reservations and have a line forming as the evening progresses they really kick you out so you can’t linger and enjoy the outside. It’s a cute town. But would not spend money on this place again.More

The website touts the farm to table type offering. My wife and I found the service adequate and the food unexceptional at best; not bad, but I would not recommend it nor would I return.

My friends and I had a wonderful lunch at Seagrass today! We dined outside because it was such a beautiful day - it's such a lovely setting in quaint, charming Ocean Grove. We all had different salads and everyone loved what they ordered. I had...a salad with scallops, and I have to say, I've eaten scallops at many restaurants in my life and the scallops I had today, were THE BEST I've ever had!!! They gave me 5 or 7 large ones and they were cooked to PERFECTION - sweet, succulent without being wet, lightly caramelized - just yummalicious!!!!! The service was fantastic too - each one of us had custom requests (yes, we're THOSE people - we want this but please put that on the side and add a little of this or that, etc. :D) and the server was very sweet about it and wrote it all down and the kitchen/cook staff got it all right. EXCELLENT!!!More

My friend and I stopped in here for lunch before heading out of town, and were super impressed with the overall quality of the place. Don't let the apparent informality of the restaurant fool you as to the quality of the food, as it was...superb from start to finish. We got here just in time to get a table, as they don't take reservations and it's apparently a very popular restaurant; we got a table right before a huge crowd arrived. The restaurant is right on the water and feels like a family-owned place, where the waitstaff know the regulars and everyone is relaxed. Our waiter was friendly and gave us a list of the specials, and everything sounded amazing. We shared the hummus plate, the vegetarian spring rolls, and the fish & chips, all of which were utterly fantastic. All of the food was clearly prepared fresh on the premises; the food was tender and flavors burst on the tongue. Prices reflect the quality of the food and service.More

It was my wife and I last night in Ocean Grove NJ so we had to pick SeaGrass Restaurant to end a beautiful week. We normally go around 5pm because they don't take reservations and this is a very popular place to eat. My wife...and I sat outside and we brought a 2018 Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay Reserve to go with dinner. Ocean Grove is a dry town so you have to bring your own alcohol. My wife and I shared this whipped riccotta cheese appetizer which was truly delicious. They served it with toasted Italian bread . For dinner my wife and I had the seafood pasta dish. Again , it was delicious. Veronica our waitress was awesome. Very attentive, but not overbearing , extremely friendly and professional. It was an extreme pleasure to meet her. For dessert we shared a warm carrot cake. It was off the hook. It is our 4th time at Ocean Grove NJ and our 4th time at Seagrass. Definitely go there, you won't be disappointed. For the one appetizer, two entrees, and one dessert the bill with 21% tip came to $120More

I have had many meals at SeaGrass restaurant and each one was amazing! The lobster BLT was so filled with lobster and fresh. The seafood pasta had more seafood than pasta and was outstanding and fresh. Salads are tender and every bite so filled with...fresh beets, goat cheese , and more. I wish I lived closer . Our server was Victoria, she took her time and explained the menu and made suggestions. If you are not sure I highly recommend you go and see for yourself. I think you can bring your own bottle of wine to enjoy while you wait!More
