    Sel de Mer is a seafood restaurant at heart, but this affordable East Williamsburg bistro enlivens traditional fish shack fare. Read more

    BUTTERNUT KALE SCRAMBLE: butternut squash + kale was strong. cajun spiced potatoes went well with chalupa sauce. would recommend.

    SHRIMP & POLENTA: perfectly seasoned shrimp, but too much sauce - made polenta soupy and i personally prefer it more thick. egg added to the dish in aesthetics, but not taste.

    Try - The Crab Cake, a modestly sized puck that was light on the seasoning, allowing the startlingly fresh meat to shine, which it did. The Old Bay aioli added a bit of kick to this stellar dish. Read more

    Underrated and awesome seafood restaurant off the Graham stop. It's all fish and it's cheap and amazing. I love the lobster and fries or any of the mussel dishes.

    Fish 'n' chips come encased in a beer-battered, deeply tanned crust that's salty & thick, & answers each bite w/ a lusty crunch. The fish is buttery & pliant, w/ house-made tartar sauce & malt vinegar

    Wonderfully unconventional territory with its fish-cake sliders, which come two to a plate and could rival any of their beefy counterparts for gutbombing capabilities. Read more

    Fab happy hour special (half off wine, $1 oysters) and, easily, the best fish&chips in Williamsburg.

    TOMATO CREAM SOUP: very thick, more like tomato chowder. big enough bowl to share as a starter.

    Definitely a great place for a simple lobster meal. And reasonably priced. + Always $2 oysters!

    This place is the cutest. Great for casual weeknight dining, date nights, brunch or happy hour. Basically, a lovely neighborhood spot.

    If you don't know how to crack a lobster, ask for the vintage "how to eat lobster" placemats.

    The scallops are to die for. Everything else is just a little better than ok. Really nice service.

    I DEVOURED the skate in clam broth with enoki mushrooms & escarole, paired with a simple glass of cold Pinot Grigio. Everything here is on point!

    Service is mad slow but wait it out for a delicious meal. Salads, tuna burger, fish and chips, and deviled muscles are amazing.

    Definitely get mussels. The fish cake sliders are super tasty also. Great wine selection. However, be prepared for slow service.

    Order what Outkast would: Shrimp and grits and all that shit. That is, if Outkast had brunch at Sel de Mer.

    this place blows my mind every time. warm kale salad with pancetta and parmesan is nothing short of almost-healthy perfection.

    Word to the wise: ask them to crack the lobster lest you want to get sprayed in the face.

    Skip the oily fried tomatoes and the pink porgie, go straight ti the lobster or the tuna

    The service is a bit slow. Sit at the bar if you can, it makes you harder to ignore.

    Best advice, don't eat here. For a place called Sel de Mer you'd think they would salt the food..,

    Blueberry pancakes are epic. If available, get a side of grits.
