This was our first stay at this Marriott location. We can say that the food we ate was among the best we had on the many Marriott properties we have visited. The seafood at Vernon's was exceptional. We shared a lobster strudel. It was large enough for sharing. It reminded us of a lobster roll kicked up a few notches.... More

Great service and great food, mostly ate breakfast here but would think anything would be great. Good location looking out over the waterfalls.

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Vernon's at the Sawgrass Marriott in Ponte Vedra, FL. Our host Josh Harris was fantastic and made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant. Great food and atmosphere. Will go back again.

Each entree includes various soups and chowders that you help yourself to in a triple soup bowl. (Sounds odd, but it works!). Service and atmosphere are both very good. Prices are a bit high, but the quality of food (I had the rib eye steak) was in line wit the price. Save room for dessert.

Vernon's breakfast buffet offers a wonderful selection of food, including an omelette station. All of the staff were hospitable. The Omelet chef was outstanding, he makes the best omelets and even served us table side. His warm personality will brighten your day. The French toast was perfect and the cheese blitzes outstanding.

Hotel venues are hit or miss. Vernon's is a hit. Modern decor catches your eye as you enter the restaurant. Dorothy is the hostess, and she was quite pleasant. She found out it was my wife's birthday and when we asked for a 'table with a view', and got one with a pool view during sunset. Appetizers are generous, and... More

The selection was good and food great even though a little pricy. Our waitress was sweet and very good at her job. Always there with coffee, water and anything else we needed.

I have dined at 619 Ocean View Restaurant many times due to the personal attention that Mr. Lane and his staff had given us. This is the first time that I have seen consistency in a restaurant with staff and excellent food. Mr. Lane recommended The Sawgrass... More
