Good cocktails, easy food, great location

We were staying at Mission Point and having spent the day cycling, simply didn't have the energy to walk into town for dinner, nor did we want to eat in the other Resort Restaurants as they seemed pretty un-atmospheric. Lovely location with a great lakeside view, we sat outside, enjoyed a... read more

Beautiful setting and good food too --- Just one of the nice features of the Mission Bay Resort, and it's so nice that they are pet friendly. Our dog even got to get a ride on the Mission Bay Carriage that took us down to meet our ferry back. We'll definitely be back.

We ate a late lunch here. Sat outside specifically because they are one of the few places on the island that will allow you to take your dog. The service was great. All the food was excellent. They have a fun drink menu.

This is a sort of open patio with a bar attached. It is away from the main strip; not far, but just enough to be a little more peaceful. The food was really good, and it was a nice place to relax. My husband had the caprese salad, and it was a little lacking. However, my tandori grilled chicken was... More

Don't order the flatbread! Don't order the veggie wrap! We sat forever in the bar waiting to be served and watched one table leave after not being served and then watched a new table be served before us. The food came out cold and the vegeatarians in our group were served the worst food. The manager was completely unaware or... More

Always enjoy eating at the Bistro! If you come at night, play a round of glow golf ;). This year we enjoyed table-side s'mores. Yummy!!

One of our favorite spots on the island for the setting. It's a beautiful coast atmosphere there with a nice outdoor bar and restaurant. We had drinks and appetizers there. Food was good. It's a casual place.

Loved this restaurant, great service, can't beat the evening colors of the sunset (although the sun sets on the other side of the island, you still get a wonderful view of the lake). Wait for the food was a bit long though.

Sat outside right on the green and had a wonderful experience with our food and waitress Roxanne. The s'mores were the best, a must try! A little off the beaten path but worth the walk. Delicious food and would definitely come back again.
