This is a great location right on the beach beautiful view but I have to say I wasn't crazy about the food. The portions were okay and it was just average for a avalon restaurant. I had the mini sliders and my friend had the sushi she said it was okay too. There was nothing to rave about this place.

Beautiful facility...great (several) bars, awesome ocean views. Food was very good and entertainment the afternoon we visited was excellent! Really fun atmosphere and great customer service - considering many different venues and customer types.

Windrift bar upstairs great place for break from the sun. Beer selection is very good with 1-2 IPA's. Outside bar is our favorite. Love the Caesar salad. Needs more gluten free options but otherwise food is great. Kids have fun getting virgin daiquiri's and watching dolphins from the outside bar. My daughter just reminded me we must say the pool...

The upstairs restaurant had good food. The sushi was great. Although our entrees came out first. Need better timing. The staff was friendly. The indoor design makes the sound bounce off the walls. So add kids, it becomes very loud. If you can seat outside, then better. The 3rd floor outside bar was excellent for a night cap. Great bar... More

Great food and entertainment at the Windrift Hotel. Loved the outside seating on the deck with views of the ocean. Bands were great and lots of drink and food specials that were affordable and delicious! :-)

The Windrift has a very nice restaurant, live music , I think, on weekends, also an outdoor deck really nice for young people who want to party & drink.

Had the best clams casino at the Windrift Signature Bar piano lounge happy hour on a Thursday! They had drink specials and half price apps. I also recommend the Kobe beef sliders....yummy! On Friday, we split a delicious Cuban panini with sweet potato fries for lunch at the Blue Wave. Again, each bite was delicious! I couldn't forget the clams... More
