I had my wedding here on Sunday, this was my first time ever seeing the place. I couldn't say enough good things - WOW! Starting with the location - absolutely stunning. The backdrop was impeccable, the weather perfect! The staff treated me like a Queen!
The service was prompt, the food wonderful, and Penny, the banquet/party director was probably the best part of everything. She was so kind and understanding, from the moment I called Sea Watch with questions about the possibility of having my wedding there, all the way from Atlanta.
DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO NEGATIVE REVIEWS! I understand why people are so attached to this place, and hated to see it change, but may I say it made my wedding a memorable experience that I would change nothing about.

Have been going to the Sea Watch since i got married, has always been a great location with great views. Over the years as my taste for fine food developed my trips to the Sea Watch diminished. I was happy i ignored the poor reviews about the restaurant since the new owners took over and while some regulars miss the old somewhat bland food i was glad to see a fresh new menu obviously prepared with fresh ingredients, wonderfully prepared with grate sauces and seasoning. Took a party of six had several appetizers (conch fritters, calamari and oysters) and grouper, scallops, bouillabaisse, fried shrimp and blackened Mahi Mahi for diner everything but the oysters were some of the best i have had and by far the best in the area! Cannot wait to go back, have a reservation for just my wife and myself tonight. It is well worth a visit if you have not been back since the new owners took over!
First I must say for over 25 years the Sea Watch was my family’s favorite restaurant. My wife has been going since she was a teen and we now have three grown children and three grandchildren.
I’m not sure if Sebastian sold out or what. But since the remodel the place is horrible. The wait staff is rude. The menu and food are horrible. The prices went up and the place looks like someone maxed out their credit card at IKEA to decorate it.
After two and ½ decades of the Sea Watch being our go to place we will never go back. Sebastian if you are still there fire the wait staff and throw the new décor out the back door and change the menu back to its formerly great selections.
If it is under new ownership the local realtors might want to gear up to sale a vacant restaurant it want be there long.
A very disappointed former patron.

My daughter had her wedding here and it was beautiful! No problems with the wedding. The problems came with the meal. Every part of the meal was a-la-cart. One appetizer crab cake was $14.00. I ordered Grouper. I have eaten grouper before and it is an excellent choice of fish. This grouper had bands of fat all through it. I also ordered a ""loaded"" baked potato and when it came it, it was small and looked like it had been reheated one too many times and it had a ""pinch"" of sour cream, bacon bits and cheese. It was not good at all. The portions are small. I did not complain, as I did not want to cause a problem on my daughter's special day, but I am writing a letter to the management. Don't waste your time going to this restaurant.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at this outstanding restaurant. Very high quality menu items, tastefully presented, generous portions, with just enough nostalgic old-style restaurant charm combined with unique and fresh ways of preparing classics. Great atmosphere, great service, wonderful view. Don't miss it!

This place is so expensive for what you get for food that you will be throwing away your money if you go there! Me and my wife went on vacation to Fort Lauderdale and wanted to have a nice dinner; so we went to this place and left very disappointed. I ordered a lobster and I feel that I only paid to have the shell on a fancy plate. It had almost nothing to eat and whatever pieces I was able to get was like rubber. The service is fine and the view is beatiful. So if you want to pay a high price for a nice view of the ocean and expensive snacks...go there. In my case, next time I'd ask a local person where to find a good place to eat seafood or buy a couple of non-expensive snacks and view the ocean from the balcony of hotel room.

Over the years I enjoy taking my company to the Sea Watch to enjoy a relaxing meal.
The food and view are great. I recommend the snapper which is very tasty and one of
my favorite. The grouper is second in line.
A nice walk along the waters edge after dining is a perfect finish to a great meal!
