First off, know that you are spending lots and lots more compared to what you would get other places. The food I would say is quite average. I had a crab cake BLT, it was just ok. No bigs chunks of crab or anything that would set this sandwich apart. In fact I would expect to pay less than $15... More

A great place to spend an unhurried lunch on a beautiful outdoor terrace looking out to the sea. On a very warm afternoon they cover the area with sunshades so you can sit comfortably without worrying about getting burnt. The seafood platter starter is a great dish to share & the other dishes I saw all looked to be of... More

I was so excited about eating at Sheerwater after reading the reviews, but was sadly disappointed with my visit. First of all, the setting is gorgeous. Right by the beach. Perfect for watching the sunset. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. Our children very still a bit wet from playing at the beach and the waiter promptly brought over... More

We had breakfast at this restaurant's buffet each morning while we stayed at the Hotel Del Coronado. The food was both plentiful and delicious. The servers were very professional and remembered the way we liked things with our meal and would serve us accordingly. The setting is beautiful, giving you a view of the ocean as you dine. We chose... More

We had a wonderful lunch at Hotel Del which we highly recommend. The food was very good and the service could have been a little better. Our order got mixed up and they had to start over from the beginning. The wait staff and management were very apologetic and wanted to make it right for us. The pleasant environment made... More

Lots of pastries, baked goods, fresh fruit, eggs--really anything you could want for brunch. Things are cooked well and the outdoor eating area has a European feel to it, plus a fantastic view you can't beat. Decent service and lots of options. You won't go away hungry or disappointed.

Had a Sunday evening dinner for sixteen friends and associates attending a conference. Two tables of eight side-by-side outside under a canopy. A delightful evening was had by all.

We capped off our Coronado vacation with dinner at the Sheerwater Grill, and were so happy we did. The food was excellent, the service was outstanding, but the best thing of all was the views. We were seated out on the patio with a view of the sunset that we'll never forget! I'm sure we will be returning when we... More
