Had a good meal out on the patio. The view is great and food is good. Good place for a romantic date. Would go again..

Ate dinner here last night with my husband. We each enjoyed the neighbor specials. Great price and delicious. I had the scampi and linguini. They were tender and juicy. My husband had the ribeye. He said it was cooked to order and tasty. The view and service were great.. We will be back!

Well this is off season, so they had minimal staff and not many customers. We had very good, if not a bit rushed service, but that was ok. The meals were not up to par. Wife had short ribs that were tough and dry. I had their special steak, which our waitress assured me was the same as the rib... More

I had heard a lot about the Monday through Friday lunch specials at Sanderlings. Only $7.95 for your choice of three great items. Fish & Chips, or Baby Back Ribs, or Pizza Margherita. I went to try their Fish & Chips. While they were undergoing a MAJOR renovation, my meal was accompanied by some drilling and hammering, which made me... More

We enjoyed a delightful meal here, sitting by a window with a view of the seascape nearby. The restaurant was spacious with lots of room between tables...service was unrushed and courteous. The menu provided good variety with fresh new ideas for some of the items. Food was excellent and ample servings for a lunchtime repast. There was a big aquarium... More

The restaurant was pretty good and the food was outstanding! There were so many things to chose from and I really like the fish tank. I go there every time that I go to the resort there. Also the view is amazing. The only problem was that the bees were hanging around the food.

This restaurant is trying, but falling short of its potential. For the prices, it should have been better. The service was painfully slow and awkward. The decor is dated and bland. My fish was overcooked, though in a very good sauce. My husband's crab cake looked like a deep fried hockey puck, what you would expect from a fish and... More

Stopped here before checking in to stay. What a great introduction to the resort! The service was friendly and efficient and the food was delicious, although a bit pricey. We had a great view of the property ( a preview of the view from our condo). Sanderlings was the start of a fun family get together, and I know we'll... More

Stopped in the bar area and had clam chowder and pizza. They were both excellent choices. The chowder is award winning. The pizza was thin crust and very flavorful. Good service, very good prices and beautiful view! Would go again and highly recommend. Oh, and don't forget the warm apple dessert - you'll be very glad you didn't!
