I was so hoping to have a great meal after all of the wonderful reviews. We went here for our 25th Anniversary on a Sunday night in October. The place wasn’t busy at all. We started out by splitting a $14 appetizer special that was...under “salad”… “Jersey tomato, fresh mozzarella with basil.” It didn’t say slices, so I was expecting a salad. When the waitress came out holding two plates with 6 slices of tomato/mozzarella slices on each, we probably made a shocked face because she then insured us that “this is one serving, just split.” I didn’t care that it wasn’t a salad bc I do love this. All of the tomatoes had white flesh inside that was hard in the middles, and not really edible except for the outsides of the tomatoes were fine. The mozzarella however was delicious. For our main entree, I got the Pan Seared Monkfish with Lobster Risotto which was a $40 special. It looked awesome, but looks can be deceiving. They were both tasteless, like they forgot to season either of them or maybe they were frozen leftovers and were just bland. My husband ordered the Chicken Paillard with arugula salad, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella & Craisins in a lemon vinaigrette dressing, a $29 special. He liked his but said “how much can you screw up a grilled chicken salad?” He did comment on how good his seltzer was. It was in a glass, so he’s not sure if it was an off brand or Perrier, but he said it was the best non-flavored seltzer he’s ever had. We ended our meal with both of us getting a cappuccino, which was by far, for both of us, the best part of the meal.More

We have eaten here twice. If would be more often but we live over 1 hour away. Both times we have had lunch. It is a BYOB. It is so good I really hate to tell you about it. Excellent service too. Last visit we...had the scallop salad and the lobster brioche sandwich. That lobster was worth every bit of the $31.00 it cost. We cannot wait to visit again. Great outdoor dining also.More

Awesome food, reasonably priced. Yes, crowded but there’s a simple reason, excellent food and always consistent.

Their specialty is sushi and I don't like it. So my husband ordered a beef dish. His was stir fired beef. The beef for both dishes was dried out from laying under heat for to long. It was an okay meal, certainly not good.

Went here for the first time over the Summer and it was great. We ordered the Fish on top of lobster risotto and the Seafood pasta. The lobster risotto was fantastic and the seafood pasta was loaded up. We had Matt as our server and...he did a great job. Also a BYO but get there early because it gets crowded quickly. Would definitely recommend SeaGrass.More

The title says it all. I ordered a seafood plate , but it was very dry. The interior decor is really stunning, with pictures of tropical fish. You can also eat outside.

Four of us went Sunday night at 730pm we were seated inside immediately outside was full with a half an hour wait. The waitress was fantastic. We asked where the hostess was since we had read some previous reviews. She was in the back checking...each plate before it came out! The food was perfect. My husand said the clam chowder was so good he could eat a gallon! Freshest salad, hummus appetizer amazing. Five Stars. They have the business organized too!More

In the summer, what is better than outdoor dining! It makes any dining experience more pleasurable because we thought the food was just okay. For lunch I had the chicken on ciabatta sandwich, teenager had the chicken tenders and my husband had the fish and...chips, but he said the fish was too greasy and so did not eat the outer coating.More

This venue is awesome. Started with the mussels, A very large portion in a very nice tasting sauce. Toasted bread was great to dip in the sauce. Ahi Tuna was delicious. A beautiful slightly overcooked piece of fish. Wanted it rare, but it was more...on the medium rare side. It was very good size sitting on Wasabi Mashed potatoes with boc choy on a very nice soy sauce. The Mahi Mahi was also very good. Very nice day out walking in Asbury and Ocean Grove.More
