My wife and I visited in December as part of my company's Christmas dinner. We were a small group so we were not restricted to ordering off the "group" menu. We were allowed to order anything off the regular menu, but we also ordered the Lobster Risotto which was on their web site menu but not on the printed menu... More

I had a delicious breakfast on the patio. The selection of food at the buffet was amazing and so tasty. The fresh fruit and pastries were amazing. The price of $33 was expensive, but the food was so tasty. If price is not an issue, then I wouldn't hesitate to eat here.

I've eaten here a few times in the past with great memories. My favorite lunch is their fish and chips! My fiancé ordered something else, tasted mine, and ordered a second entree of his own fish and chips. It's so nice to sit outside there and soak up the good weather and ambiance. It's expensive but what isn't at this... More

We assumed that Sheerwater was the workhorse restaurant of the hotel, the one that does breakfast, lunch and dinner at the more informal level. We ate dinner there one night and were very pleasantly surprised. We were in the open area with the heaters and had an excellent table. I went with the cioppino and it was very good. Too... More

.Although casual, Sheerwater maintains the high standards of The Del. Excellent food with a nice presentation and reasonable prices. You can eat inside or outside. The outside area faces the beach and it is a great spot to enjoy the glorious sunsets. We recommend it.

This is not a restaurant for a casual lunch unless you have money to burn in your pocket. Out on the terrace you are looking out to the Pacific Ocean but between you and there are hoards of tourists. The service couldn't have been better but the food was so so. My husband had a $29 taco but it was... More

Thank you for joining us for lunch. While Sheerwater does have an amazing view of the Pacific, if you wish to be closer to the water, the Sun Deck Bar & Grill is the perfect location. We appreciate your recognition of our staff and look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. More

Amazing sea bass and good wine choices. Evening service was fantastic. Lunch service was hit or miss. Also, cauliflower gratin was one of best sides! Even if you don't like veggies, you have to order this. Only available at dinner.
