Really missed the Beachside Bistro and the Sea Ranch Resort during the winter, happy to have my favorite place with the best food and ocean view open again. Now, if the weather would just cooperate all will be good in my world. Make sure you stop by on your vacation. AND Thursday nights enjoy Phil Watson's entertainment and half price... More

This small place offers a fresh daily menu and the food is great. It is tough to find so be persistent, you have to go through the hotel lobby at least that is how I get there, then there you are on the tall dunes at the ocean front. It is the only truly ocean front place left other than... More

We stayed at the hotel this Bistro is in and had a bed and breakfast deal. We were full halfway through our choices!!! The banquet chef was a waiter (we went during the off season) and it was his first and second day but he did a great job. Portions are huge!

The food was excellent and the bacon was perfectly cooked. My boyfriend got an additional pancake to eat and we were not disappointed. This hotel includes breakfast... More
