“Bring Cash!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Sea Chest is walking distance from the local area ocean front motels. Fresh seafood at reasonable prices. Lively atmosphere. Arrive early for best ocean view tables, and bring your cash! Cash or check only, no credit cards. An ATM on premises. Oyster stew and other dishes cooked and served in small pots; a nice touch. Wine list prices fair, but not high-end selections if that matters to you. Efficient service.

“An unexpected surprise!”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Very good seafood, a few local offerings. Great wine and beer list.Does not take credit cards. Energetic, young-ish (for the area) and noisy when we were there but we enjoyed that.

“Bring Cash”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Good calamari and drinks. Very busy. A local favorite. Was within walking distance from hotel. The cash only thing is a hassle and i wonder how much business they lose because of it.

“Amazing food!”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Had the chance to sit at the bar and discuss with locals and the owner. Food was cooked just before my eyes. Nothing fancy, but everything is fresh and delicious. Highly recommended.
