We had a sumptuous and generous meal at Sea Grille in April! Our waitress was helpful with getting us acquainted with the procedure of ordering here. You take your table check directly to the chef where you place your order and get recommendations on how he thinks it should be cooked! After you place your order, you help yourself to... More

Food is great and ala cart. We like it here better than anywhere on the island. Not cheap but worth it. Lobster and steak all the way.

This is a unique restaurant for 2 reasons. Nowadays it's rare to find a place with a salad bar, let alone a great salad bar. This restaurant has a GREAT salad bar. The other reason, as others have reviewed, is the way you order your entrée....by walking over to the kitchen window and placing your order with the chef. What... More

I was pleased that I was able to converse with the chef regarding the different steak and wellness choices. My filet arrived just as we had agreed! The salad bar was well stocked with fresh veggies and good dressings. Guests line up to order their entree and then move to the salad bar housed in a very small area. It... More

We went to the beach for New Years this year and there was not too many restaurants open but luckily this one was! Food is really great!! I loved how this restaurant is set up, it's kind of unique.

All the choices are on a board including the side dishes. You tell the chef how you would like it prepared, help yourself to the salad bar and return to your table where the waitress serves what you have ordered. Everything was delicious and prepared to your order.

The service was excellent. The food was overpriced and not that good. Another NJ sea Shore establishment that dissapoints

We were greeted by an extremely friendly staff member. The salad bar was fresh and not overwhelming. I had a delicious and juicy pork chop with a side of asparagus. My husband had nicely seasoned and moist chicken breast with a very creamy side of mac and cheese. Portions were huge so needless to say doggie bags were necessary! The... More

Solid steakhouse - plus is that this restaurant is one of few on island open during the off-season. Good

The Sea Grill always lives up to expectations. Simple meat or seafood, cooked right. The salad bar has a good variety of crisp veggies to choose from and drinks are top notch.
