Food with a view

We had a nice lunch, with tasty chowder and great Ruben sandwiches. The "local" lunch menu was hidden and was only seen after we ordered. There is a beautiful view of the beach.

It is difficult to find a bad breakfast in Santa Cruz County but Sanderlings manages to fit the bill. The setting is magnificent and the Service is top notch. Just avoid the food! The hash browns were undercooked and not crispy,the omelette was barely edible and the toast was soggy. Do not eat there unless they improve the breakfast chef.

Excellent view, great food, great service. Nice bar. Indoor and outdoor seating. Parking is tight. At lunch they often have great "local specials" for cheap, like fish and chips, pizza or baby back ribs.

We were staying at the Seascape Resort for two days when we were on holiday from Scotland. We found the Sanderlings Restaurant staff very friendly, welcoming and helpful. During our stay we had the Sunday Buffet Brunch and a dinner in Sanderlings. The service both indoors and outdoors at the restaurant was excellent. The dishes on offer were well cooked... More

We visit Sanderling's every time we go to the Seascape Resort. There's a reason for that, beyond the fact that it's in the resort. We're seniors, and they have great deals for those over 62 at certain times of the year, and certain times of the week. At the restaurant, we get 20% off the food portion of the meal,... More

We both had very delicious meals and dessert. This is our third visit in five years and this time was the best. Great ocean views and friendly, efficient service.

We enjoyed our lunch on a patio with a view of the Pacific Ocean. The waitstaff was nice, the food was good and reasonably priced.

Food wasn't bad. Be prepared to wait a while though. Be patient, they'll get to you...eventually...when they get around to it.

This restaurant is under rated. I have eaten here many times over the years & it had always been very good. Great service, good menu with a good choice. This restaurant is in the Seascape Resorts. The Sunday brunch is amazing & always packed. Try this place you won't be disappointed

We stayed at the resort and were planning to go to Phil's in Moss Landing for dinner. Traffic was bad so we thought "what the heck" let's go to Sanderling's. We weren't expecting much as we figured it would be middle of the road hotel food. Boy were we wrong! Our server was Jada and she was nothing short of... More
