Shades is pricey but worth the experience. Sit on the patio there is an outdoor fire pit and the food was great. Service slower than normal, but good. Very relaxing atmosphere.

The experience was refreshing & relaxing, with an ocean breeze and perfect sunny weather. I've been here a couple of times for breakfast and dinner (outside patio seating). For breakfast, I enjoyed the eggs benedict. Recently, the "Friday Dinner Special" was the prime rib, which was delicious. About the service... our waitress, Christina, was friendly, funny, and outgoing. In all,... More

We have been to Shades several times the last two times being on New Year's Eve. It's a lovely, upscale restaurant with romantic overtones yet perfect for families, too. There is indoor dining and outdoor dining with heat lamps if needed. We have dined both. New Year's indoor dining was more appropriate but we had a reserved a window table... More

Came in for appetizers on a Friday night and was pleasantly surprised with a Hawaiian fire/hula show. Great ambiance outside with a nice view and the food was great! The next morning we had the breakfast buffet which came with bacon, sausage, eggs, potatoes, oatmeal and the other continental items plus made to order omelets. The omelet was excellent!! Service...

We dined here for breakfast and dinner as we were hotel guests for 5 nights. Breakfast was excellent. Dinner very good as well. The chef even made my wife chicken soup ( Not on the menu ) as she was feeling under the weather. Staff was always cheerful and most helpful. Nice to dine outdoors by the heated lava pits.

The food was fantastic, servers were very friendly and even though there was a private party around the pool area our food and cocktails were served spot on!

Can be noisy by the pool but you can request interior seating. The area is nicely landscaped and allows dogs.
