The food is first class, great portions, and amazingly prepared! The wait was somewhat lengthy but we enjoyed a cocktail by the fire while waiting. The seafood dinners are extremely fresh but just a little pricy!

My only complaint is that they did not offer a complementary desert for my wife's birthday dinner.

But well worth the chill, the wine, the food, meeting with others while we stood in line for an hour to get a table. Again the The Sea Chest delivers an outstanding meal. We started with a bowl of Calm Chowder Soup and a Dinner Salad. Their soup had a slight white pepper, potato pieces, and nice clams. The salad with vinaigrette dressing, croutons, and a single tomato. We both had the Sea Bass this time, vegetables cooked just perfectly, slices of thin potatoes and firm, delicious, beautiful fish. To finish, we ordered a piece of Carrot Cake. This was a real treat, harkening back to real flavors not seen in a long while. Their strawberries, were sliced as thin as I have ever seen. Nutty and soft, beautiful looking cake.

This Restaurant came highly recommended. Cash Only, Opens at 5pm. We arrived at 4:30 and there was already a line. People in line were so nice, most returning customers. We watched the sunset standing in line, sipping wine in our coffee cups! This restaurant was Excellent! We started with Oyster Rockefeller that was some of the best I've ever had! I ordered scallop & prawn pasta combo and it was perfect! The complimentary chocolate dessert was amazing. Every staff member was Awesome! We had one of the best nights EVER! Steve & Kristi

Hubby wanted oysters after a day visiting wineries.
He loved them all but said Pacific Coast oysters outshined those from East Coast (we are from Boston) ‍♀️.
We had seen this spot on a morning walk in Cambria and on Trip Advisor.
One of the last to be seated the evening we visited which was fine. Had the separate dining area all to ourselves. He had oysters and bowl of chowder. I had delicious shrimp scampi.
Great indoor and outdoor seating options, all respectful of Covid guidelines.
Highly recommend.

Absolutely incredible experience! Excellent service, great wine, just right west coast oysters. We ordered our entrees with clam chowder and it was an incredible one. We had linguine with clams and calamari steak and both just great!
