Mimosas and Chowders and Honey Ham, Oh My!

This was the Christmas Day buffet. A fixed price open buffet requires discipline. One can circle the tables freely gathering breakfast, lunch and dinner items. Oh my, what to skip? What to return for? The spread was well-prepared if not unique. Leaving dissatisfied is one's own fault. Having... read more

The food quality for the brunch was 5 diamond! it was an endless buffet of extravagance and indulgence! Linda our "server' was incredibly cheerful, helpful and hospitable. Made us feel so welcome, as did the entire staff, INCLUDING housekeepers. We ate like royalty and the kids all loved it.

My wife and I dined here for the buffet breakfast while staying at the adjacent Marriott Fairway Villas. The Seaview property is not a Marriott property but you get 10% off if staying at the Villas. The Villas by the way are fantastic. The cost of the buffet was $18.00 before the discount which was probably a bit on the... More

I cant believe this beautiful circular restaurant that overlooks the front of the hotel and has water views is closed for dinner. this is mind boggling. the Seaview could be a very romantic getaway if there main dining room was open

Well appointed dining room with attentive staff and standard buffet breakfast. Same was included with our room rate, but it would have been worth a stop even if paying separately.

The extensive Sunday Brunch was amazing value at $30 per person with child discounts (up to 12 years) also. We enjoyed the included mimosas. Service was very friendly and efficient. I particularly enjoyed the lobster pasta. I would have liked Eggs Benedict to have been available but this is only a minor criticism. Later in the week we dined in... More
