We stayed at the Sand Pebble Inn which is a 2 minute walk to the Sea Chest. As other reviewers say get there early before it opens at 5:30pm due to no reservations. Also our hotel told us cash only so we were glad to have known that before we got there. There were 6 of us and the wait wasn't too bad but many people showed up before us. We were actually shocked that we got what I felt was the best table in the house which was a round table at the window facing the ocean. I had the Calamari Steak and it was huge and good, I could have split it with my husband and of course I gave him some. My husband had the shrimp and scallop pasta along with another one of our friends. Of course I sampled it and it was delicious (contrary to what another reviewer said). Staff was friendly & service was exceptional. We will be back.
