My husband and I ate outside on their terrace as we had our Siberian Husky with us. My husband ordered a spicy pasta dish and he said it was great and just the right spice. I ordered the hamburger and fries loved that as well. Next time at Sea Ranch we will return.

The menu has a fair amount of variety...but food could be better. The greek salad and coconut prawns were very good...but the tempura oysters, ratatouille and chicken alston...could all have been better. Service on the balcony left something to be desired.

We ate here on a Saturday night. Got seated without a reservation, which was nice. Staff was friendly. We ordered the grilled salmon and the special house chicken, both of which came with a salad. Warm bread was also served. Gualala has limited restaurant options. This place is basic but good value.

The kids and I were looking for a spot to eat while vacationing the coast. We heard about this spot from a checker at the local grocery store. Not a lot of choices in the area so we went for it. Great location looking out over the ocean. Nicely decorated and could be on the upscale with the cloth tablecloths... More

Few restaurants in Gualala, this one is OK, straight ahead, stick with dishes I had like beer battered fish sandwich with coleslaw. My sense, in restaurants in this area, don't look for exceptional creations, stay with burgers and slaw, etc. Service was good, pleasant place. I had read that they had big screen TVs expecting a sports bar scene in... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch on our trip down the coast. I had the cobb salad which was excellent - I would rate that a 9.5 on a scale of 10. Unfortunately the rest of our party was underwhelmed by the food. The clam chowder was just OK and nit hot enough. The fish tacos were average at... More

We booked in advance and there was some question about separate tags...we won't go if it has to be on just one tag. They finally said ok, but took some of the pleasure out, just having to discuss it.

We were hanging out up in fort Bragg at the beach on vacation. Once we were done we headed south on highway 1 around dinner so we needed somewhere to eat. This place had good reviews so we checked it out. I was pleasantly surprised. Our waiter was helpful and kind and my food was great (I had the artichoke... More

We stopped here for dinner since St Orres was booked and we're pleasantly impressed with the coastal view, seafood dinner, and service. Our waiter was attentive, the drinks were good (surprised they didn't offer Anderson Valley wines). We enjoyed the coconut shrimp, fish and chips and clam chowder for dinner. I recommend this restaurant in Gualala for a simple seafood... More

We stopped off for some shopping and had a quick lunch in the restaurant. Great young waiter looked after us well and attended to our order very well. All our choice from the menu was excellent and enjoyed the ocean view while dinning. Great place to stop and dine.
