18 SB is a lovely place to go for a delicious dinner and nice atmosphere. The service was excellent, as was the food. My husband and I both had the salmon which was perfectly cooked. The cheese plate appetizer was more than enough for the 4 of us to share. We also all shared the desserts which were wonderful. There... More

My wife and I joined some old friends at 18 Seaboard last Friday night. Nice ambiance, food was tasty and nicely presented. Chef came out with a tasting of blueberry gazpacho as a treat from the kitchen... a fun touch! The reason I don't go five stars is that I felt like our very nice server may have been spread... More

18 Seaboard has a little of everything - from meatloaf to shrimp & grits - delicious. They also have daily specials so be sure to listen to these (from waiter or waitress) before making a rash decision from the wonderful menu choices! :)

This is a space in transition at the moment, but currently the Oak and Dagger bottle shop is there and they are wonderful. About 10 beers on draft, wonderful people, and a great selection.
