“service and food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Service is terrible, you need to wait 40 minutes for your order to arrive to your table and when serve,it is wrong dish, people treat you like make you a favor, you order a coke they bring you ice tea, order hamburger and bring you something else is not even close to a hamburger. Please, go there to have lunch or diner and you will be disappointment and will enjoy the horrible food and service. The web page or web site shows complete the wrong picture that they are. Ha, I forget, bring antacid and pepto-bismol. They don't care who you are or if are tourist or local. That happen today September 1st, 2013.

A Great place to enjoy the ocean view from the air conditioning. A good place when it is raining outdoors.

“Skip,run as fast as you can.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We went here on a Friday night around 8 and it wasn't that busy,the host sat us right away but our server took forever to come. I order iced tea and my husband a mojito,his drink took around 15 minutes,now that's just ridiculous. Still we stayed,we order the she clam soup,by the way is delicious but to my disappointment she didn't bring us bread. Finally we got our dinner,when we were almost done our server decides we can get some bread,I was ready to strangle her. This place wasn't busy so I don't understand such terrible service,we didn't order more drinks or dessert because we were afraid that if we did we would stay there forever. It took this girl more tan 45 minutes just to get us the check,terrible terrible service. Never in my life would I go back. If you want good she crab soup this is the place but make sure you call it in on Monday morning and they'll have it ready for dinner ask to pay in advance,if not you'll spend your whole day there and believe me is not pretty at all. For real good delicious food and great service go to the crab shack,you will not be disappointed.

“Good Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

The Dolphin is one of the better hotels to stay at on the beach. The location was very good and the rooms were ok. There was no mini fridge and some of the amenities werent as promised. Had a great deal on Expedia so couldn't complain about the value too much.
