From the moment you step onto the roof and see the view, the vibrant colors of the furniture and the upscale, yet lounge like feel of the restaurant, you know you should order a drink and stay... so we did. Happy hour prices are great...More

This rooftop dining experience was quite lovely! Piano and warm breezes on the rooftop of Ocean Lodge contributed to a romantic evening. The mahi and grouper specials were very good. The mahi was a bit more tender with a moist flakiness. Sides of Brussels sprouts,...More

This question is for the staff. We will be staying at Sea Palms and our 40-50 person group (a few children) will want to venture out for dinner. I would like to come up with an inexpensive menu (refillable non-alcoholic drinks, appetizer, salad, entrée, dessert) for Monday, June 28, 2016.
