Seaglass Salisbury Restaurant Review










Wow...this restaurant is my cup of tea. We knew it as soon as we stepped into this oceanic paradise. It sits right on the ocean in Salisbury MA and when you look out the windows you are surrounded by ocean...you are actually eye level with it which makes you feel like you are on a cruise ship.

The decor was paradise to me....a stone mermaid laying across a shelf...pseudo-water drops dripping down the walls...shells and candles and fish everywhere...paradise.

Rob and I got there a little before we were to meet Cass and Steve. We sat at the bar and had a drink and our experience was off to a wonderful start. I got their signature Seaglass Martini...You will see the picture...another piece of paradise. I typically don't go for the blue drinks...usually too sweet. This time I asked the bartender what their specialty was and this was one of them. It was a delicious blue martini made with blue curacao, vodka and triple sec and the garnish was the best part- blue rock candy!! It was the perfect start to our evening. Cass and Steve joined us at the bar and Cass ordered the same as it was that good!

We had some laughs and then made our way to our table. They tried to sit us away from a window, even though I made reservations. They said window seats require at least a 5-6 week reservation time. I was impressed with my hubby (and he will be pleased that I wrote this.) He pushed back and ended up getting us seats with the ocean view...ha ha!!

Dinner was incredible. Usually at ocean side restaurants, I order fish but tonight I was really craving red meat (we don't eat it often for various reasons)...I had the filet oscar style and it was delicious- it also came with a side of blue cheese mashed potatoes. Rob got the Scallop and Lobster Farfalle which I tried and that had the perfect blend of fish and a sweet caramelized sauce..delish.

Cass got the fisherman's platter which was full of all different fresh fishes and Steve, ordered a rib eye which he was pleased with!

I also have to make mention of the wine I had- I had the Cambria Pinot Noir and it was excellent. They had an extensive wine list too...very comprehensive.

We finished the night with another drink at the bar (which I probably shouldn't have had because I had enough already but hey- special occasion- special night with friends right?) Cass and I tried the berry berry martinis which really reminded me of a grown up koolade drink-too good!

I would highly recommend Seaglass...I wish we could've stayed all night but we needed to rush back for our monkey...who had a BALL with Grammy and Papa while we were out!

Lastly, I want to mention, too, that they have a wonderful Sunday brunch including a raw bar. Cass went with her family and said it was unbelievable! Our bartender told us they are not doing it over the summer but plan on bringing it back some time this fall...we want to take my Dad because it will be completely up his alley...we will just need to find a good excuse to splurge!
