Lovely, high end ambience within a well known resort. The views from the dinning room are the best along the coast. The staff is friendly, the experience is good, but the menu is limited, and they seem to have gone through too many chefs. There is so much that is right about this resort dining experience, I just wish they... More

The staff worked with us to make the stay reasonable, but still luxurious. We had $100 credit per night per room which could be used in the spa or dining room.

We had a pretty big group dinner here. Our service was pretty good. We had a pretty long wait for our food. Once we got it everything was good. Nice place. Too bad we were there for a late dinner. Would have liked to tour the grounds.

This was a wonderful event ...and we hope to go back there for a get away! The waitstaff, gardeners, housekeeping staff and lounge staff made the 4 dayevent pleasant for our guests. I had a couple thoughts that I shared but over all we hope to go back there !

The menu we received was rather short on choices. What we did have was good and the scenery from the porch was delightful..It was overlooking the grounds and the ocean. The service was attentive but they gave us time to chat and enjoy the lunch. Next time I would ask if there was another menu, with more choices. I thought... More

My husband and I went to lunch at Water's Edge on a weekday. The restaurant only had three other tables of patrons - most of the dining room being empty. There is a very limited lunch menu with a couple of soups, some sandwiches, some entrees and a couple of salads. The Caesar salad with chicken was OK - nothing... More

We ate at the Bar overlooking the water. The atmosphere was lively as a band was playing. The wait staff were kind and attentive. The view was incredible. However, the food and drink were disappointing. Given the prices, I expected more. The serving sizes were paltry, the drinks barely had alcohol. You're truly paying for the view. I'd go for... More

The food was disappointing. The scallops were tiny and sparse. Service was acceptable. The atmosphere was excellent, but they need to upgrade their menu for the cost of their offerings.

We go quite often for their Thanksgivings brunch and it never disappoints. Great selection of food and drink and the location on the water is wonderful. Very attentive and responsive staff. Also had a great weekend brunch with piano player. Call ahead as it is quite a local favorite.

Had an evening meal at 830 but restaurant already winding down. Reasonable food but felt it was a bit on the high side. Lovely view though..
