Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was sooooo looking forward to a relaxing meal. This is another restaurant that caters to the locals. No problem with that but don't make it so obvious to the travelers. Food was good but overpriced for the quantity and quality. Would not go back again.

We had a really nice dinner on a Sunday night. The menu is awesome with lots of great choices. We decided on the grilled halibut, and surf and turf (filet and lobster “pie”). The surf and turf was excellent. Like all of the other reviews...state, the lobster pie was amazingly good. The filet was cooked perfectly as well. The halibut was a touch overdone, but still really good. Lots of asparagus on the plate, and again cooked perfectly. Service from Troy was outstanding - super nice, friendly and knowledgeable. He did a great job and made the dining experience even better. The wine list is a little limited but okay. We ended up getting glasses of wine from a daily special, which were actually quite good. All of the staff were friendly and very hard working. Reservations are suggested. We had made one, and there were a number of people waiting outside. We arrived on time, and were seated immediately at a great table with a view of the harbor. Highly recommend the Seaport Grille.More

Everyone is friendly, the service is incredible and the food is amazing. We started at the bar as we waited for a deck table. The drinks are generous and affordable. Once seated our server was with us and provided a great experience. We started with...the fried clams-delicious, some of the best I’ve ever had and I grew up on the Cape! We had steamed lobster and the ciopinno. I highly recommend Seaport Grille.More

Visited on a busy Sunday. We called ahead and got placed on the waiting list. We were told it would be 45 minutes. We arrived at restaurant 30 minutes later and had a minimal wait for a table. People who did not call ahead but...arrived same time as us were advised of a 90 minute wait. So definitely call ahead to be placed on waitlist. Despite a packed house, service was great. Never had to wait for drinks, etc. Appetizers were delicious, lobster just perfect. Atmosphere was fun and just what we were looking for. Would highly recommend.More

We wanted great seafood and an outdoor venue. Seaport Grille was the best restaurant we visited throughout our trip. While their indoor seating looked spacious and beautiful, we were happy to walk through to their outdoor balcony which is overlooking an interesting part of the...fishing port. Drinks were excellent ... the watermelon mojito was the best drink of the vacation. Both the crab cake appetizer (3 huge carb cakes), and the seared tuna appetizer were both outstanding. Then we each ordered the Fish & Chips .... we had to laugh because the dishes they brought were enormous! And it was the best Fish & Chips of our lives. For under $25, the large portion of flaky, lightly crusted fish was so perfect and delicious. Another table ordered the fried fish sandwich (about $6 less expensive) and while it looked yummy & delicious, our basket was easily 2 times bigger (if not more). This restaurant was such a delight.... it was like a reward for those visiting a fishing village... you truly get the benefit of both freshness and quality and quantity. Wow! Easy 5 stars!More

Still love this restaurant, love the lobster rolls, etc. but lobster still our favorite. now while they have tried and failed to accommodate my husbands issues with peppers in the stuffed lobster, we tried again asking for the stuffing without peppers, hoping after 4 years...it got better. our waitress was truly apologetic but the chef would not accommodate us saying the stuffing was already mixed. well, we moved on to the lobster pie. NOW this had (and it was stated on the menu,) buttery ritz stuffing. asked if THAT could be in put into the lobster. evidently not!! we had the lobster pie and it was fabulous but not giving the customer what we would like is not the best business especially if they had the other stuffing! not sure why the chef would not comply , again..........done with this restaurant. If they get a new chef, maybe they should advertise it!More

What we were told was that they had changed the menu for the summer, with less choices, however it never changed back in the fall. We expressed our displeasure to the hostess who said she would pass it on.
