Although Beaches has a limited menu, the food was very good. The view is spectular right overlooking the Gulf. Our server was very friendly.

“WORST SERVICE I HAVE EVER HAD!!! Ok food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2010

The view is very pretty - the food was ok, not horrible but the SERVICE was so terrible it's hard to remember the food. There were maybe 2 other occupied tables in the restaurant and we were a group of 10 and we sat for over 20 minutes before we even were offered drinks! Then it took forever to get drinks and the waitress was SO rude we spoke up to her for being so rude to us and then we had a younger gal who was a little bit better. Food was overpriced and service was so bad we would starve before eating here again.

“Beaches is a bummer”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2010

Positive:
1. The view is great... although I give God most of the credit for his creation. However, I give Beaches the credit for the windows so we could view it.

2. My kids mac and cheese was good... mostly because it was Kraft and that is hard to screw up.

Negative:
1. Service was horrible. Table was not ready at reserved time. Drinks took 15 minutes after they were ordered and we drank them all before they ever checked on us again. Everything was soooooo slow. My son got chicken fingers and asked for them to bring ranch dressing (that they had forgot)... it took another 15 minutes and he had to ask the hostess to get it. We all would have drank more and had dessert if the service washalf way decent.

2. The food blew. Not good at all.

In summary, I would pass on this place. If there was no where else to eat on the island, I would fast.

“Incredible view and delicious food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2009

Beaches is the on-site restaurant for Sundial Resort and doesn't accept cash - you need to use your resort charge card. However, the view is gorgeous and the food was outstanding. We had breakfast there and all agreed the food was great, and our waitress was very friendly and personable. We would gladly return.
