Great food but overpriced for the portions received! The resort offered free cookies and afternoon tea but the lines were unbelievably long and even arriving early did us no good. When we finally made it to the front there were no more cookies.

As a New Orleans girl, it is very hard to enjoy seafood in different areas. The fish I had tasted to ripe for me. My husband also had fish and did not enjoy it. The atmosphere is more upscale although, there were families dining there. The view was the best part of the meal.

We live in the area and enjoy the atmosphere of The Grand Hotel but the food is very disappointing. A burger in the lounge (Bucky's) is the best.

Lobster bisque was bland. Shrimp cocktail was disappointing. In an area known for seafood and the shrimp were 5 medium-small shrimp. Had to ask for cocktail sauce. Won't eat at the property again when staying there next time.

Dined at The Saltwater Grill last month and had a pleasant meal. Lobster Bisque and Gourmet Mac & Cheese with filet tips. Lobster Bisque was full flavored but not too heavy and the Mac & Cheese was very hearty. A little too much food for my small appetite but a great deal for the price. Free valet parking and incredible... More

THe dinner evening meal for 8 was OK at best, and the service was OK as well, if not worse. Service seemd slow, items missed, quality of food was fair. Nothing to write home about or Trip Advisor. I would say on a Sunday night, there were maybe 20 totel people eating in the resturant. I understood why after our... More

I'm staying at the hotel for a conference and have been impressed with the food so far. The fried crab claws in the hotel bar are amazing, and the lunch served at my conference today was the best and most creative I've had at a conference. Given this, I was disappointed with dinner. The $55 bottle of white wine we... More
