We had lunch at the Ocean Room at the Sanctuary. First class all the way. The resort is beautiful and worth a visit. The dining room is beautiful. The beet salad was excellent.

We loved our experience at the Ocean Room! The servers addressed us by name, and offered personal suggestions on entrees and desserts. The food was beyond five star, and the atmosphere was classic. I would absolutely dine here again!

I had the 8 oz Filet with Béarnaise sauce which was without a doubt one of the best filets that I have had in years. My colleague and our client also... More

The Ocean Room is the prime steak house for the Sanctuary. Excellent service, atmosphere (jackets suggested for men) an expensive menu but the meal is worth the price.

All of the steaks I've had were cooked perfectly with a keen eye towards their flavor. Today we had the tuna, which was seasoned perfectly, and the salmon which was... More
