SeaSpray Inlet Grill rebrands outdoor casual dining at Waterstone


The word is apparently out that informal dining with a waterfront view is back in Boca. Waterstone Resort & Marina at the foot of Camino Real formally introduced SeaSpray Inlet Grill outdoor dining and bar.

Seating ranges from hi-tops in the covered bar area, to regular tables and even upholstered chairs under umbrellas with a water view under the Boca Inlet bridge.

Longtime Boca Ratonians will remember when that was ‘the place’ for burgers. Two burgers remain on the all-day menu for lunch or dinner, [$16 or $17 served with rosemary Parmesan fries or $2 more for sweet potato].

But now gluten free, vegetarian and vegan symbols let diners know there’s something for them, too.

Hours are 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily with a happy hour menu 4 to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday. Breakfast with a separate menu Wednesday through Sunday 8 to 10:30 a.m. A brunch menu will be introduced in the fall, the hotel’s general manager Matthew Lane said.

Reservations are accepted for six or under or for larger parties call to arrange. A table for 15 is the largest the space can accommodate, he added.

SeaSpray’s menu is current with food trends and includes six shares, or appetizers. Media foodies got to taste sticky cauliflower with sesame soy glaze [$12]; grilled octopus with chorizo and fingerling potato [$18]; smoked fish dip with slices of jalapeño on the side [$14] and pear tortellini in truffle cream sauce. [$14]. Hummus [$12] and wings with a honey bourbon glaze [$15] are also on the menu.

WPTV early morning broadcaster Kamrel Eppinger gave the apps a thumbs up, agreed by the rest of the tasters.

The menu also offers five salads with a choice of five proteins ranging from chicken, salmon, shrimp, skirt steak and chef’s catch [$6 to $12]. Salad prices range from $14 to $17.

Handhelds include the aforementioned burgers, a mahi Reuben [$19]; shrimp tacos $19]; chicken club wrap [$16] and chef’s catch on a brioche bun [$19]. Tasters were given a choice of five entrees ranging in price from $25 to $32 with a $48 seafood dish. Most chose salmon or skirt steak.

Desserts include shareable ‘smores that actually come with a tiny campfire [$26]; key lime pie [$9], flourless chocolate cake [$9] or apple cobbler with salted caramel gelato[$9]. That got the highest praise.

The drink menu with traditional beverages and even frozen virgin options are on the back of the menu. Their mango mojito is worth the $13, and there are four fruity margaritas, even a pineapple jalapeño. A Casamigos tequila drink is $2 more.

Lane is especially proud of the mural with the neon sign that lights up at night by artist Gabriela Benatar.
