Cozy space for a cocktail and a bite to eat

This is a very cute spot if you are staying at the hotel, doesn't open until 3:00, but has very comfortable, cushy seating areas and great views. Didn't order food, but we saw some that looked wonderful (slider assortment). Everything was good except the lemon drop martini - not one of the better... read more

We stayed across town, but a few of the locals recommended we check this place out. My husband and I came for supper one evening, and could not believe the view. It was absolutely amazing to look out over the ocean from atop the rocks while we ate. The food was good, and I found there were still plenty of... More

First off, this place has great views o the cost line, so if you just want a quick drink with a nice view, this would be good. But for a meal, try somewhere else. Food was just average, especially for the price paid. Beers are local brews, so that is nice. The "Cracken" meal is a sandwich with two fried... More

Great martinis to go with the view! Goat cheesecake to die for. Sit at the bar or in a comfy lounge chair and soak up the atmosphere. Local beer on draft too. Very well priced.

We visited the Float Lounge, in Black Rock Resort, for dinner one evening. Lovely selection of eats, as well as an impressive drink menu. The menu was reasonably priced and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The views from the lounge are just astonishing.

A nice place to enjoy a drink and enjoy the view. There are good options for light fare food and snacks. Not a lot of drink options on the menu but the bartender could make almost anything.

The chef has no idea how to cook a steak or serve hot fries. Terrible service, the servers just don't care. Not even apologetic, have no idea of the menu or what is included/tastes like.

Great place to have a snack and a beer after a long day with the nature. Lounge with tables facing the ocean makes this place so pleasant and peaceful. Great Service !
