My husband and I are pretty easy to make happy, but our experience was terrible. First, the lady behind the desk wasn't very friendly.

My fiancé took me here for my birthday this week, and it was absolutely fantastic. The front desk was very friendly and accommodating. The view from the ocean front room was to die for. It was immaculate and comfy. One of groupons best for sure. I did not want to come back home.

This place is really the only restaurant on the ocean front. Great views and exceptional food, the prices are reasonable which is important too. Always fresh and always accomodating with my challenging (glutton free, dairy free diet) dish needs.Thanks so much!

Took my wife to the Sea Ranch for her Birthday a few weeks ago. We always enjoy staying there. Love what they've done with the Oceanfront rooms, especially the new bacony design. Mrs Gusler and her staff are always helpful and friendly. Terrell and Berrie Bunn Rocky Mount, NC
