After looking at this location online we decided it would be great for a family dinner, since it advertised a children's menu was available and it had the bonus of overlooking the beach. We were appalled by the lack of ambience and service. The dining room was not very busy and we asked for a table by the window. After... More

Wonderful breakfast buffet. The area is so huge, there is plenty of room for guests. The service was good, the food was good. I loved the view the best. We sat forever, just watching the sea.

Food was cold, the carb cakes that we ordered for dinner came out looking like hockey pucks. Manager said that they just browned them on the flat top grill. Go to AJ's for a fantastic meal and view at sunset.

Nice window views but outside is just the public parking lot. Food pretty good but is very slow service. Desperately needs updating! Like stepping into the 1970's - in a sad way

The menu was very limited. The atmosphere was boring. My fish was good but I would have been just as happy eating a Captain Ds.

Lousy experience because 1) it took about 15 minutes to seat a party of 13 in an empty restaurant and were repeatedly asked if we all wanted to be seated together by three different staff 2) limited and pricey menu options and one club sandwich which we ordered came with human hair! (which was kindly removed from our check) 3)... More

Loved our sever "Larry", and he recommended the ribs, which were very good. This sounds odd, but I love mashed potatoes and these were maybe the best I have ever had. We stayed in the hotel and this was a perfect cherry on the top of our stay here. Wonderful view, good food, great service, what more could you ask... More
