We began going to 18 Seaboard when it 1st opened. And I am still coming here for spur of the moment dinners out, special occasions, friends' getting together! I even had niece's bridesmaids luncheon here in April, 2016. Could not have been more perfect. The owner, the staff are all like family. And the food is excellent...always fresh and local... More

Very good food and good service. A bit pricey; however, it is appropriately priced for a special occasion type of outing.

This was our first visit to 18 Seaboard and it was pretty good. We took advantage of the $10 lunch special during restaurant week. Portion sizes were nice and food was pretty good. The cheesecake desert was not my favorite. Service was goos. We will return to check out the dinner menu soon.

9 of us met to celebrate my daughter in laws birthday - variety of tastes and palettes. The environment was friendly, tables not so crowded as to make conversation difficult. Nice wine , beer and cocktail variety. I had the beef brisket with the grits and garlic roasted broccoli - no knife needed, melt in your mouth goodness. Get the... More

We went here for Raleigh Restaurant Week and had a very enjoyable dinner. Hostess was very welcoming. Service was very efficient, but not so much that we felt rushed. The pace of the meal and the ambience of the dining room made it a very relaxing dinner. The chef sent out some complimentary bruschetta, which was a nice gesture. I... More

We had lunch here during restaurant week, & it was not only great food, but a good bargain too. You could order a first & second course for $10.00! I had the Roasted Corn & Yellow Pepper Gazpacho for the 1st course, & Mixed Green Salad with Smoked Salmon Patty on top. I don't think it's on their regular menu,... More

My second time in this restaurant, first time was a few years ago. I cannot believe that I have not come more frequently. Excellent menu, was hard to decide what to order. So i went with the beef brisket tacos and bruschetta for appetizers and share the crispy roasted pork shank for our main dish. We complemented the meal with... More

I don't know if it's because it's Restaurant Week or what but my best friend and I had to walk out after tasting our entrees today, they were so terrible. I have never tasted anything in my life as salty as the spinach that came with the mealy, unappetizing meatloaf. (Seriously, it's an hour later and my taste buds are... More
