Really enjoyed this restaurant. The staff and the owner made our dining experience even better by making sure without frequent disruption that things were right. The servers were personable and professional. The food quality is high and delicious. The price performance is very good as well. If you so need or desire they can make good wine pairing recommendations with... More

My second visit and it's becoming a favorite. A lot of variety on the menu but easy to reach a decision. They have a lunch and dinner menu although they are similar except for a little difference in price - as typical. My wife and I split the burger with pimento cheese and bacon. It was superior; the beef was... More

For me it was an eclectic menu. Wahoo grilled was the fish of the day. Unusual for me was the sweet potato soup with a light goat cheese creme fraiche. I also had the N C swordfish with champagne tarragon sauce. Very nicely prepared. Excellent wine list. Better than average service. Nice treat!

This is a 10. The food was outstanding and gluten free friendly. They really pay attention to their patrons. I really didn't know if I like grits but I really, really like the blue cheese and basil grits. Do yourself a favor and enjoy a wonderful meal at 18 Seaboard. Thanks again to Jason and his staff

Drove 4 hours from South Carolina direct to this place, based upon recommendations. We were not disappointed at all and enjoyed one of the best meals of our 3 day trip to Raleigh there. Amuse bouche of a delicious, light and perfectly cooked pimento hush puppy started us off. Tho we never eat fried green tomatoes, their appetizer version with... More

Service excellent but not overbearing, food is consistently very good, sometimes superior. Went for a late lunch, and less crowded on Saturday. Weekdays it helps to have a reservation.

Been there 3-4 x it's ok nothing special last time seemed pretty pricy for what you get . One time I went and the waitress dropped a whole tray of drinks on me. You would think they would've at least given me a free meal or a free drink but nope.

We went here for a business dinner and thought it was great. We all had the pork shank and thought it was delicious. Servers were prompt and friendly and the ahi tuna appetizer was yummy. Good beer selections.

I took a friend here for a birthday lunch and we were very happy. We both got the shrimp and grits, a dish served quite often in this area and in varied versions. This one stood out and was outstanding. First the shrimp were tender, perfectly cooked fresh sweet and (I'm guessing) from our coast. They had absolutely no iodine... More
