We were driving by and decided to park and try out this restaurant. I must say that my salad was fresh and delicious, and my seafood dish with the pasta was exceptional. The service was efficient & friendly... love this place!!!!!!!

As a local, we go to this BYOB regularly and its our top choice for guests who want seafood without being smothered by day-tripping tourists. One of the owners is from New England and her clam chowder is unmatched (a family recipe) and the summertime lobster BLT is a favorite. That said, they offer a complete menu for those who... More

Came here for a small work Christmas lunch. Not a typical place I would have selected - I am not from the area so the people in our group are familiar with the area and this place. Good choice! Food was good, large portions- everyone enjoyed their meal. Small place and can get noisy. Had to speak loudly for others... More

It was a dark and rainy Thursday night and few people were on the road so we were able to park almost directly in front of the SeaGrass Restaurant. Since it's a BYOB, we grabbed our bottle of wine and headed in to meet our friends. The service was friendly and attentive but not at all pushy. Our wine was... More

I live at the shore and would rank this restaurant as our #1 choice of places for lunch and dinner! It's a great place to dine as a couple or with family and friends. The decor is lovely, the presentation is beautiful...the flavor is consistently delicious and the staff is helpful and friendly. There are wonder specials and a Sunday... More

I ordered the "Seared Jumbo Day Boat Sea Scallops over Pea and Asparagus Risotto", and I really tried very hard to enjoy them. They were cooked perfectly light brown and tender over a moist tasty white risotto (peas?). Unfortunately the scallops had a very fishy almost iodine flavor and the best preparation could not change that. The people I ate... More

I went with a group and had a wonderful experience with food and service. The group had fish and meat entrees that were cooked to perfection and served at the same time. Although they do not serve alcohol it is a BYOB restaurant.

The food and service at SeaGrass are amazing. Clam chowder had tender chunks of clam. Sword Fish was perfectly cooked and paired with jasmine rice and coconut curry. Tuna was tender and flavorful with wasabi mashed potatoes. bok choy and seaweed slaw. BYOB 5 stars on both food and service.

Last Wednesday my friend and I had a delicious lunch. My pasta and shrimp portion was very generous.The staff was very attentive. It was a beautiful day so it was crowded. A group of us went tonight (1/2 price on entrees on Wednesday) We got there early (5 of us) and we didn't have a problem being seated, since they... More
