Breakfast is included with your stay at the hotel and is absolutely delicious. We also had dinner at the Grill and it too was wonderful. Their seafood chowder is excellent. Everything we tried was fresh and yummy!

I have been enjoying The Sea Ranch since 1975. I have been to The Black Point Grill long before it was The Black Point Grill. I usually have a nice experience. I take friends for lunch and dinner more than a couple of times a year. I'm just hoping my last experience was a blip. We had a handicapped relative... More

We just stopped in to see what they had while driving by. We looked at the menu and decided to give it a try. Everything we had was very good. And the view was also worth the visit. May be a bit more than we usually spend for seafood but with the ambiance, it was worth it.

We did not make it past the bar area, but ate from the same menu as the restaraunt. Reservations are a good idea. Excellent food, service tried but maybe 1 or 2 understaffed. Grabbed a bottle of wine and dessert to go, to finish the sunset with.

We biked the the 20-mile round trip from our rental house to the Black Point Grill several times in May. On each occasion we anticipated a serene and tasty lunch with grand ocean views. The food? Quite good ... creamy clam chowder, crunchy fish and chips, a savory tomato and Humboldt Fog blue cheese galette. The servers? Earnest and very... More

For dinner, you have to start with the Green Flash cocktail...why not? We enjoyed a bottle of Pinot Gris and went through the entire small plate menu. Of all the food we had (small plates, entrees, desserts and drinks), the small plates were our favorite. But the best pairing for the dinner was the view - it was stunning. We... More

Off season there are not a lot of lunch places open along the California coast between Jenner and Gualala. One place, about halfway along this stretch, is at Sea Ranch. Sea Ranch is a housing community that stretches for 10+ miles along both sides of CA route 1 and the restaurant is at the southern most end of the area.... More

I've had the breakfast that comes with room rental and it was great. So was mother's day brunch. We had several mistakes from a new server, but he was new and trying. And you can't beat the view. It's a much better restaurant than it is a lodge.
