“An improvement that needs improvement!!!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

We'd given up on the previous incarnation yrs ago- in spite of the rare(for Citrus Cty) amazing location... The New Seagrass is clean w/wonderful water views, both inside & out! The new building presents a classy,casual, open (though somewhat LOUD) space that is inviting & fresh. The beer,wine & cocktail menu is great- especially the beers. The variety of micro-type brews is welcome in an area where "Bud,Bud Light, & more Bud" seem to dominate the options! The food menu is pretty good- they do have grilled choices(like grilled grouper I had) as well as the usual fried seafood, chowder, & burgers. Soups and chowders were both quite good, our party had both the clam chowda & the soup choices(tomato bisque & Italian veg/bean.) Seemed like homemade- and served at proper temp, fairly promptly. Service was ok, waitress being pretty responsive- a total turnaround from the times(past...) when we had felt so ignored we walked out without ever being served. The staff is really trying- but appears to have not quite have it(Yet!) The problems still involve the cooking- burger ordered medium that was pretty rare but my personal disappointment was the fish. A nice portion of grouper, obviously very fresh & seasoned appropriately but grilled, well nearly to death or at least to a point dry enough so the lemon "salvaged" the meal for me. The presentation on my plate was quite appealing w/great Asian coleslaw & veggie- too bad the main event got torched. The Seagrass salad was so-so, mainly because the lettuce was not abundant & seemed to be the light green iceberg type...
Overall, would we return- YES! The County could use a waterside grill that does it right & though certainly the Seagrass could improve, especially at the "nowhere-near-great value" pricepoint they've chosen. Heck if the food doesn't improve much the atmosphere & great bar fair make it a redeemable place for just a burger. But, if it were my investment- I'd be aiming higher, that is my hope 'cause this place could well have the potential to make it there...

“New Management and New Chef!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Prior reviews are correct, the place needed new management and a new chef. We ate there Friday February 22, 2013, and found the food average at best. As we walked around the Tiki bar after lunch we talked to a waitress who was excited that the then chef was leaving in 20 minutes. She told us there already was a new manager since the re-opening.

Nice new facility on a great riverfront location with 4 different eating areas, one outside. Wait staff was very good.

Purpose of this review is to pass along the waitress's comment that a new chef has arrived. We'll
definitely be returning often.

“The New Seagrass is like a box of chocolates.....”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

You never know WHAT you're going to get! The place has great potential. The food is good...mostly, clean, and a great location. The problem is obviously management. The waitstaff are great, but always confused as to what their menu items are, or what can be served, or where. We hope they will get it together before they loose ALL their clientele. Today we went over and they were closed because they had no food.... HELLO!

“It was good”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

I had clam chowder and crab cakes which were both delicious. I wish they had more fresh fish on the menu that isn't fried.

“Restaurant is all new!”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Has re-opened under new ownership and much larger, exvellent facility with indoor and outdoor (screened) seating. (Old facility razed)

Rating gives benefit of doubt. Of four meals, two were good and two were mediocre.

VERY noisy place.

New chef needed.

Owner will have all items corrected shortly. The area needs a good first class restaurant. 2/21/13
