Dining

Diners can choose from 13 casual dining options or 4 fine dining waterfront restaurants that Seaport Village offers. From Mexican, to fresh seafood and ice cream and everything in between there is something to satisfy everyone’s pallet. Are you in the mood for Mexican? I suggest Margarita’s Kitchen and Cantina, the taco salads are delish and the margaritas are the perfect combination for the sun and fun Seaport Village offers.
