It was a very quiet day and we were the only ones in the place. We had our choice of any ocean view seat. Very limited wine list, but fabulous crab dip. I know these quiet days will be a thing of the past over the next few weeks!

I left a detailed review on the Clarion site. But here we go. The raw clams and oysters were so fresh and the crab legs were delicious! They gave us a butter warmer to keep our butter hot. I wish I could blink my eyes and be back there.

The breakfast buffet here has quickly become our family's favorite spot in OC. Great buffet, not a ton of choices but everything offered is fantastic. Served in a great room with an inspiring view of the beach and plenty of space for a large group to gather. The cheese blintz' are AMAZING!

Wasn't staying at the Clarion but a local recommended their breakfast. Not typically buffet fans but when looking at the assortment of items, including a variety of fruits and oats, we gave it a shot. All items tried were outstanding and the chef was outstanding and a good chap to deal with. Service was outstanding, the view was brilliant!!

This is my top choice because of 2 reasons: 1. Best quality. They don't have a lot of selection like other places (Philips) but the quality is the best especially the crab legs. 2. Best view... More
