Service was outstanding, view spectacular. Even without reservations on Fourth of July they were very accommodating. The food was phenomenal. I have nothing bad to say about this place to be completely honest.

Meals are good breakfast is better with a full bread and meat service including eggs made to order. If going at sunset be aware that's their busiest time

Their Sunday buffet get all the rave reviews, yet the rest of the week at Sheerwater is excellent as well. Family of 4 was $120, 2 adults/2kids with drinks, so pricy, yet right by the ocean in "the Del" with fantastic views.

I'm sorry but I'm not sure. I know there is a huge buffet. But I don't know if all of it is available for a continental breakfast. That means get be just cold food, but I'm not certain.
