Ooooooh my goodness. Well, I must say this was an interesting visit. It took a while for us to be serviced. Whatever happened last night must have filtered back into the day staff. It is what is but, the food could have been better minus the obnoxious patrons. It was way to early in the day for people to be... More

We discovered this place quite by accident last year; we returned this year & we found it to be just as good as our previous visit. Both of us enjoyed a rich creamy crab soup which is almost thick enough to eat with a fork. Last year my spouse tried the clam chowder which he thought was just okay. My... More

We stopped at this place as we were in the mood for some seafood, however there was nothing on the menu for the kids. They were very accommodating allowing us to buy some chicken nuggets and fries from another place and bring it into the restaurant so we can have some seafood ourselves. The staff was very friendly the food... More

It's a very small, dark, windowless hole in the wall. BUT! We have always gotten good steamed seafood. We had our usual steamed platter with a side of Oysters Rockefeller. We had some shots and some beer. Everyone in there seemed to be a local. We had a great time. The bathroom was pretty rough though. Keep it clean fellas!... More

Dwayne, who shucked our oysters and prepares our clams, is a great guy. Harlem transplant. We've had a ton of seafood this trip, and this raw bar is among the tops. Try the Oyster Rockefeller and Clams Casino.

From the drinks to the crab legs I left there very satisfied! It may be small but that ol' saying "Good things come in small packages" Holds so true at Sea Side Raw Bar! I'll Be Back!!

Have been in here in the past, and used to have great seafood. Seems as if management has changed hands, because when I went back to this location. The seafood was of poor quality, gritty and grainy, the crab was horrible, and found maggots in my oysters. The staff acted very nonchalant, as if it was no big deal.

My wife and I were staying nearby and Seaside was recommended as a good bar that would not have loud music blaring. The bartender was good and the drinks were good. However, there was a party of about a half dozen people that was very loud and very vulgar. At one point we thought a fight was going to break... More
