“This review is based on their Thanksgiving turkey dinner”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Beautiful location, great service, but the $40+ Thanksgiving dinner was a real rip.

First, the turkey breast. It wasn't moist, it was wet. And every bite of every slice was very salty. I'm not an expert on cooking turkeys but my guess is the turkey breasts they were using had been injected or infused with saline solution.

The mashed potatoes came out of a box. Very dry, no flavor. The green beans were good, the small portion of sweet potato casserole was very good.

But the gravy and the dressing were tasteless.

The couple we were with had been there before and had a steak and the lobster instead of the Thanksgiving dinner. Their meals didn't cost much more and they were much happier.

“Great food and service.”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

This was the second time I've been to Sea Watch and had a great experience. The menu is interesting and varied. The service was great (even if you sit at the bar!). I tried the paella, and was not disappointed. Cozy, laid back atmosphere with a view!

“excellent restaurant/twilight dinner is a complete deal”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

right now there twilight dinner is a deal, as the sun starts to set earlier the view of the beach makes for a great atmosphere, all for 20.99 inc a lobster special. I had a dish from the ala cart menu ,paella it was pretty good with a little spice to it .the rest is set at the ocean in-between massive condos. but the place reminds me of a 1940 fla restaurant, with the old pull out windows, very interesting. service was excellent, food was also pretty good this night and we lucked out no A/C needed.
