Nice view, so so food

We stopped by for lunch. Had the seafood chowder which was tasty and the special soup which was cream of cauliflower. Had a touch of truffle which was nice. We also both had a wedge salad. I love the wedge and appreciate any restaurant that can take it to a new level but this one was just ordinary... read more

I have been coming to Sea Ranch since 1987. For the better part of 15 years I come up 2-3 times a year. Over the last few years I have not been able to make it up here. I had breakfast today at the Black Point Grill. What a complete let down and utter disappointment! It took them 10 minutes... More

The food here is very good no matter what you order. The oysters were outstanding. The service is fast, friendly and very helpful. I recommend this place particularly for lunch because the "post card" view. We saw whales spouting and the surf crashing. Dinner is excellent too, but having light to see the view is to treasure.

In the last year the Grill has improved tremendously in both service and great menus. I have attended one of their Wine pairing events and thoroughly enjoyed it. The views are great.

We were pleased to find that the Black Point Grill had a varied menu using a lot of local farmers and fisheries. The portions are fairly large and prices reasonable.

Food is a little on the pricey side, but pretty good. The view is the true highlight of the meal however. Go for dinner to watch the sunset! (albeit bring some shades.)

I had been going to this restaurant located in the iconic Sea Ranch Lodge for almost 11 years. Every year we would go hoping that it had improved. This year, it has. It was always a beautiful location and you could have a cocktail and enjoy the amazing view. The food was another story, an overly ambitious menu coupled with... More
