I just had dinner here for the first time. The drinks we had in the bar were good…my old fashioned had a generous shot and was well made. The dinner was a chance for me and a cousin and his wife to catch up after not seeing one another for a long time. The booth where we were seated was... More

We had a very pleasant dinner in the bar area. Our server was very quick and attentive. I love the artichoke appetizer, I have it every time I eat here.

I enjoyed the Christmas menu at Kula Ranch this last year. You will have to book early but the cost is reasonable the food is quite good usually and I enjoyed the surf and turf when Marina has rolled up the side walks for all the other options. Very comfortable in the dining room and there is always the tapas... More

This restaurant is lofted in the Sanctuary Beach resort and is convenient if you are staying there. The menu ranges from sushi to steak - and a lot in between. It's never going to challenge for a Michelin star but it's friendly, lively and offers something for all the family.

I stayed at a hotel across the street so the location was nice but parking is a problem. It was very crowded and pretty loud. Service and the food were okay. Not a good value. There was a guy walking around playing ukulele and singing. That was the best thing about this place.

We enjoyed the convenience of location, staff and the drinks. We had several appetizers and none were absolutely "divine," IMO. Asian Salad was bitter (both of us agreed & didn't eat ours). Dim Sum was fried hard, pork sliders were salty. Both the Angus Sliders with Aioli & the stylized Wonton Nachos were good. Sweet Potato Fries are the best!

Fantastic food, steak wasn't prepared right the first time and I didn't even say a thing and the waiter whisked it away and brought another perfectly cooked medium rare steak! Service was terrific and friendly! The bar was great too!

Go for happy hour and sit at the bar. Our service was great, but food not so great. The bartender bent over backwards to make our drinks great, even went to the back to search for wine.

We are staying one night at Marina, and we wanted to enjoy the nearby restaurant... Appetizer, artichokes, was good, but then, steak and vegetables, really not at the level which we could wait for the place ! We love the room in the dunes, but we were really disappointed by the restaurant, even if staff and manager were very kind... More

Not the best food considering there are excellent restaurants within a 10 minute drive. The food is very basic and a bit like a TGI Fridays. The bar area is great but we would not eat here again.
