“Under the radar”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

One of my favorite spots at the Jersey Shore for fish. If it was in Asbury Park, it would be a "must do" spot but since it is in Ocean Grove, it flies under the radar. The setting is suprisingly chic for "Ocean Grave" but not intimidating. Loved the fishtank. But the star is the food. Never had a bad meal. Start with the homemade chips and dip. Lobster BLT is also a favorite. And the deserts are homemade. Look for off season, in-week deals for great values.

“Fresh from the Sea...”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Dinner at Seagrass, an unassuming restaurant in scenic Ocean Grove, NJ, was a lovely experience. While the restaurant is small, the seating is very comfortable. For appetizers, we tried the calamare, which was fresh and flavorful with a delicious dipping sauce (not the usual marinara !) and the harvest salad (again, healthy, crisp, and delicious). For entrees, we ordered the salmon and swordfish, which were expertly prepared and very tasty. The wait staff provided us wth a friendly, unrushed meal. Since the restaurant is a bring-your-own, we idled over good wine, which of course, enhanced the meal and dining experience. We will definitely return to try out the rest of the menue.

“Solidly good seafood”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Very nice and popular restaurant (read: long wait on a nice evening) with a wide selection of seafood at fair prices. BYOB--no alcohol served on the premises. Outdoor dining is on the sidewalk, so it's a bit noisy, but fun.

“A good meal in Ocean Grove”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is food that you never would have found in OG in it's hay day. This refined and thoughtful cooking. My tuna was great. It's served with wasabi mashed potatoes and baby bokchoy. The mussel starter was just so-so. I would not order it again. The outdoor tables were great and the inside beautifully decorated. I will go back.
