We were a table of four there for dinner. When we we're seated our waiter came over and started telling us about his two daughters and things we had in common with them. We were not interested and tried to let the waiter know this. We placed orders for appetizers and four entries. The appetizers came out quickly and were... More

Went one weekday morning for a breakfast/brunch buffet. The food was decent but little pricey for the amount of items offered but the veiw and service made up for that. Everything seemed fresh and the fruits and veggies all seemed farm / garden fresh. The outside table was worth the short 15 minute wait. Service was top notch.

We had lunch reservations and showed up a few minutes early. The hostess promptly showed us to an outside table that was directly next to a wait station that was over run with dishes and reeked of garbage. There were several other tables available that were not next to this spot. When we asked to move, she giggled and said... More

We got there to late for food, but got drinks and talked to each other and watched people walk the Beach on a nice walk path. Drinks were expensive, but your on vacation. They had seats with table umbrellas and lounge couches with a fire pit in the middle. Awesome!

Yeah you have a cute view. Waiters seemed distracted. We asked 3 times twice for 2 separate things. I have no plans to return

Great Restaurant - Make sure you request an outside table! If it's on a weekend during the summer, you can expect to have a front row seat to whatever wedding festivities are going on that evening on the lawn.

The chilled seafood platter is truly fantastic, the prawns and lump crab the best I've eaten. A mound of food!

We checked in to our hotel early and room wasn't ready. Thought it would be relaxing to have a nice meal at the Sheerwater. Poor choice, although we were seated promptly, it took 50! minutes before we were served. If a restaurant is this busy, they should just take names and wait to seat customers. To add to the disappointment,... More

Loved the grilled Brussels sprouts and the Sea bass was amazing. Skip the pasta with chicken and lobster it is very sub par.
