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

Our experience here was very good. The view of the ocean was fantastic! The menu is rather limited, yet portions were rather generous. We stayed at the hotel so the location was ideal. Our server provided great service.

We have enjoyed several anniversaries at the Dolphin Reef, but this past week (April 5) was the worst. There was no huge seafood buffet, just a few options on the menu and a very LOUD party was going on one floor down. The restaurant is partly open to the floor below and although we were sitting at a small table,... More

An overpriced buffet at night, and regular joe food during the day. The view is great, but only can see it during the day.
