We've been to the sea grill every year we vacation in Avalon. The service is good. The seafood is consistent and I like the way you get to order your meal direct from the kitchen. It spices up the meal.

We dined at Sea Grill for the first time in several years and had a delightful dinner. The ordering here is a bit different from most restaurants but works fine. You take your table's blank check to the kitchen window and order then go to the salad bar and wait for the servers to bring your entree and sides. Our... More

Read the reviews, but still wanted to try this place. Had an enjoyable evening, not rushed, great service and after an entrée mishap, management went out of their way to accommodate. As other reviewers have said, ordering your meal is interesting but enjoyed it. had steaks, fillets and prime rib and a bunch of sides. Satisfied on all counts. Only... More

Second visit and probably last. The ordering system makes no sense and creates traffic issue for servers and customers alike.If that is to be the system the why not have two windows, one for ordering and one for pick up. The salad bar is mediocre and worthy of only one to be found in an old grocery store.It is poor... More

Went to dinner here last weekend. Entire staff was friendly. Place was packed but they were able to seat us quickly with our child. Good was great but in my opinion overpriced. I understand it's typical of Avalon though.

Went here with my family for dinner. We were quickly sat at a comfortable table. Atmosphere is a little loud but perfect if you have kids. Their menu has a great selection of food. I got the Filet with Crab MR and it was cooked perfectly. The steak could of been cut with a butter knife it was so tender.... More

Have been several times and experiences have been mixed. Steaks are pricey; ribs are great. Worst experience was 1 1/2 hour wait, standing. Year round which is rare in Avalon.

Went there last night in a party of five, one being a ten year old child. Never saw a place where you go to the kitchen window and place your order with the cook directly. This window is crammed into the front corner right next to where you make your own salad. This same window is where prepared plates are... More

Unfortunately, my husband and I went here at the advice of two separate friends. We were disappointed. The ordering process is weird and in a small space. The salad bar is tiny, but was the best part of the meal. My salmon was fishy. That just screams " not fresh" to me. My husband had scallops and they were great.... More
