The food here is good for beach food. The service is painfully slow. The wait staff apparently hung out in the back room and only appeared when a meal was finally ready to be served. I had to wonder around and find my own refill for tea. The kitchen is painfully slow. It took almost an hour from order until... More

Took 35 minutes to sit. No problem. Took 20 more minutes once seated to get a waitress. Starting downhill. Ordered beef nachos for app. Tasted like broken up hamburger in the nachos. Between app and getting food took way too long.... 50 minutes. Who cares what the food tastes like. Terrible service.

The tile of your review is "Disappointed". After reading it over three times I can only agree. Somehow I do not think myself saying I am sorry is quite good enough. I just wish I will have the opportunity one day to tell in person how sorry I am. I know I would feel if this had happened to me,... More

Great Restaurant! Not your normal hotel restaurant by any means. Amazing staff with shout outs to Raven and Allison for always going above and beyond for our picky little one. Grilled Shrimp and Crab Cakes are a must try!

“Not your normal hotel restaurant”, exactly the way we feel. And thank-you for bringing that up. When any of our guests complement our food and mention our staff by name, this just means that as management we are lucky to have servers that do care, and once again it shows. I will be sure to let Raven and Allison know... More
