Met family here for lunch. They come often and chose the place as we were also traveling with our dog and the restaurant has a beautiful outdoor seating area that allowed this. Situated on a resort property, the restaurant is located along the edge of lush greenery and nature. The beach is steps away and you can hear the sound... More

Went to happy hour this evening to find out there is no happy hour prices, AFTER we've ordered and eaten our food. We over heard a couple who apparently go in often, knowing everyone's names, didn't know about the no happy hour prices, as the waitress explained to them, because it was a holiday weekend. I spoke with the manager... More

First of all, this restuarant is rather expensive but has the ambiance of a diner. The beautiful views do not make up for the poor service. We ordered a bottle of wine which did not arrive until we finished our salads....with no apology. The food was good, not great. We and another table were the only ones in the restuarant... More

We've had Christmas dinner buffet here and it was quite good. The Sunday brunch was very average. The only really good entree was the teriyaki salmon. The chicken was a chicken fried steak and was not worth eating. The strip steak was tough and nearly inedible. The eggs benedict had a bun that was too tough to eat. The salads... More

Beautiful views out over the grounds to the Monterey Bay. Of course, being the central coast of California, there may be fog, which alters the view. But the food is still very good, and beverages are plentiful. Many different locations within & around the facility for seating options.

This is a nice place to have lunch or dinner. Lunch menu is not overwhelming, actually quite limited, but everything on it is superbly done. service is mostly great, and being able to sit outside in a nice sunny day under an umbrella in the fresh air and watch the surf below is a treat. Prices are moderate as well.

Restaurant is part of the Seascape resort. The restaurant has a full bar and outdoor seating. The food was good and the portions were above average. I had the fish 'n chips (2 large pieces) and my wife had the Reuben sandwich. The batter on the fish 'n chips was nothing exceptional. The reuben was was very good. Expect to... More

We had dinner here. Beautiful venue on a beautiful evening, caught a great sunset over the bay. Food and service are excellent. I had a lamb shank which was perfect.

Over the many years we have eaten at Sanderlings, we have enjoyed some really great meals. The last few times have just been ok. Atmosphere is very nice and service is usually very good. I would try it again.
