We just attended the Thursday evening seafood buffet at the Seaview main dining room. In a word , spectacular. The cold peel shrimp were colossal size and perfectly cooked. There was a rowboat display with the shrimp and fresh raw oysters and cold snow crab claws. You could stop right there and be happy. One of my favorite dishes were... More

We ordered off the menu for breakfast. We had Crab Benedict with a hash brown and also a custom scramble (with cheese, spinach and onions) with potatoes and English muffins. Every bite was delicious. Our servers were very personable and polite and funny. A Unique experience - we feel very fortunate to have eaten there.

Went to New Year's Eve Buffet and it was delightful! Food was delicious and the atmosphere was first class. We had the whole family with us - even the grandkids - and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Have eaten here multiple times. Returned again for their wonderful breakfast buffet. Love the omelet station, oatmeal and the fresh fruit. We had a relatively large party this morning. Unfortunately my son had a problem with one of his waffles. The managers asked how they could make it up to us and suggested we stay at the hotel for a... More

The seafood buffet was a wonderful treat for my mom's birthday. We arrived a few minutes before our 6pm reservation. We waited 10 minutes and the waitress never came. We passed her on the way to the buffet and told her the order. Thankfully I loaded up on the scallops on our first trip, after that the line was really... More

Just what you would expect from an old fashioned elegant resort. Service is excellent as it is in the entire hotel, the buffet breakfast is as varied as breakfast can get. (Reminded me of the Fitzwilliam in Dublin) The omelet station is quick and well done (the service, not the eggs).

I went to the Seaview for a scheduled business luncheon. There were about 12 of us and we were able to get a private room. First, the room was nice and large--we were not cramped into a small space, which was really nice. We really felt free to discuss business matters easily without disrupting anyone-- or be overheard by others.... More

My wife and I went to the Seafood buffet dinner on July 21 and thoroughly enjoyed it. They only serve the seafood buffet on Thursday evenings until October. Amanda was our server and explained that the menu changes all the time and everything was good. She asked us to give her 10 minutes notice when we wanted our lobsters. The... More

We attended the Sunday Brunch this past week at the Seaview Resort. We were a party of 10 celebrating a birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed the brunch and felt that it was a very good value for the money (It would have been a good value at the full cost, but we even got a 20% discount with AARP). A very... More
