We had a lovely evening. The wine list was fun, the service prompt, polite, and polished, and the food perfectly prepared and tasty.

What a nice gem for well-prepared food and great service. Lots of choices on the menu and a great recommendation from our server about a fresh fish option on the menu (halibut). Started us off with a special treat as soon as we sat down--an almond bread. Our meals were prepared well and served hot. We were too stuffed to... More

Seafare is one of the handful of restaurants on Route 60 that are NOT a chain. It's been a reliable standby for us for over 20 years. When we first went there it had a wood-panel interior like a sailing ship but has been renovated to a light open feel intended to represent a cruise liner. The staff is glad... More

I've eaten lunch here three times in the last year. The items on the menu look very tempting and it is hard to decide. I've always been pleased with my food... especially the seafood bisque. The service is a little lacking. I've had the same wait person twice and I find them to be not very nice and somewhat abrupt,... More

We thought when approaching The Seafare parking lot that it resembled a lot like Long John Silvers . When we got inside it resembled a cruise ship ... Loved it! Dinner was great! We got to play one of the 18th Century games we bought in Williamsburg as we waited. Love the seafood!

My family and I had a delicious meal. Services was excellent. The banana foster and cherry jubilee was a wonderful way to top off the meal. A great dining experience.

Everything was fine, except my meal. Tournado of beef, was absolutely below standard. The meat was a thin slice of something, I've never tasted "tenderloin"like that. Husband loved his lobster. ..and the kids loved the sherbet before their meal. The kid steak blew mine out if the water, sad but true! ! On a Sat night, the place was empty... More

Came across Seafare after day at the park with our boys. The hostess was incredibly accommodating and the waiter was truly amazing. The mussels and stuffed flounder was terrific and to top it off with a bananas foster and peach Melba made it a perfect end to a great meal.

Location convenient to hotels. Ambiance surprisingly nice. Very welcoming. Quiet and nice particularly for dinner. Service was excellent but it did take a while to get our food. Even waitress apologized for delay. Food was average. Starting with bread which was stale. Corn muffin that is served wrapped in a linen ( nice presentation) but tasted more like a cup... More
