Located inside the isla Grand Beach Resort, this wasn't your normal hotel restaurant. Service was great and food was delicious. Price was average for a resort. Best of all was atmosphere and dining while looking at their backyard facing the Gulf of Mexico

We had the pasta night buffet and it was great. The chef prepared our pasta to order in front of us individually. Water was served in goblets and the staff was attentive. Good value for a family dining experience.

While on vacation we ate here with our 2 grandchildren. While the food was small in portions and average in taste, it was worth going for the view.

We had dinner at the Windjammers beachfront Café which is located on the second floor. The seafood buffet was delicious and the view was beautiful.

We got to the restaurant around 4 pm. We had hamburgers. The place overlooks the swimming pool and you can see parts of the beach. There are palm trees all over the area, which gives a nice tropical feeling. The tropical music fit the environment. The hamburgers were ok, the service was quick and friendly.

The food and service were excellent. Had a nice quite dinner with my wife. No waiting for a table. Be sure and visit the bar next door after dinner, the live band there is always fun!

Great view for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Wonderful soup and salad bar Monday-Friday for lunch. Breakfast buffet on weekends which is excellent but also offer 'from the menu' service. Different featured dinner specialty Monday-Friday--Prime Rib, Italian, Mexican, Seafood Buffet, etc. Prime Rib was very good. Competitively priced. Friendly staff.

We had a horriable server. My boyfriend asked what do you like on the menu. The server said and I quote this "Well we got shrimp and mussels and chicken and more shrimp." The server also forgot to bring our 1st course. We didn't say anything because we didn't want to make a huge deal. The dinner was ok. We... More
