    Hit and miss. I've had the good (bacon wrapped sturgeon) and the not so good (really muddy striped bass, tuna that tastes singularly of sesame oil). Still my favorite place in town to get oysters and clams...but I'm not sure I'd have dinner there again.

    Service can be uninformed and the hostess has been rude to many of us...though I can't say if she's still there as I haven't been back since May.

      I too have had very uninformed service, to the point where I considered how it was possible to be this uninformed and derive your living from the service industry.
      The food was pretty good, but the service and staff knowledge is below an Applebee's-level restaurant.
      If it's for a special occasion, I would seek victuals elsewhere.

        If you think the service is bad at Sea Change you have seen nothing compared to the private events at the Guthrie. The servers are not trained and would rather take a smoke break than work.

        I have never thought much of Sea Change and would not go back.

          Ice written a couple reciews which have "mysteriously" been deleted.

          In a nutshell, food pretty good, service varies from below average to downright horrible. Will not bead.

            What does "will not bead" mean?
