“Very nice setting overlooking the ocean”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Enjoyed a few local beers, some sushi, Cobb salad, club sandwich, and crab & prawn mini burgers at this hotel lounge. The lounge, just off the lobby of the Black Rock Resort, sits on a low bluff overlooking the Pacific waves smashing up on the black rocky shore. The meal was quite good, although service a little slow. I Would recommend the sushi, Cobb salad and crab & prawn sliders, although the taste of the smoked bacon overwhelmed the salmon in the salmon club sandwich.

“Great Sushi, Good atmosphere, Good Music”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

Went on a Thursday night to take in the live music and try some local sushi. The sushi was reasonably priced and really good. The portion was larger than I expected and we did not wait too long to get it. Found it to be very fresh tasting and hot, well presented on the plate too. Never looked at other items on the menu, we had been recommended to try the sushi there and I was not disappointed. Our meal was about $45 before tax for two people plus drinks and there was so much I had some to take back to our room. It's also cheaper than the main restaurant at the Black Rock Resort. Even crowded service was great and constant.

“Very Disappointed”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Our group of 15 had contacted Black Rock prior to our trip to make a reservation in the lounge. We were told by the manager that reservations were typically not taken, but they would make something work for our group.
When we arrived at 8:30, we were told that there was no reservation or arrangements had been made for us. We ended up staying and sitting at 3 separate tables. Our waitress was inattentive and we felt as though she would prefer we weren't there. Utensils, napkins and food items were missing from many of our meals.
When standing at the front to pay our bills- the waitress took one of our bills, started to run our transaction through and then abruptly left and started serving another table- leaving us to stand around waiting for 5 mins or so until another waitress came up to finish our transactions.
One of the ladies from the group went to speak to the manager (?) behind the bar who offered no apologies.
We were all eating and having drinks and would have stayed longer and spent more had we received decent service. Unfortunately, I will not be back.

“An awful experience”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We went to the lounge portion for dinner and drinks we did not stay at the hotel. My group made a reservation there a week in advance and when we showed up they said that they did not have it. After we asked if we could sit at separate tables they allowed us in. The experience just went downhill from there. The waitress was inattentive and rude and acted as if she was unhappy we were even there. Many of our orders had items missing when the food finally arrived and I finally received the drink I ordered after we had finished eating and were waiting for our bills. No one in our group had a positive experience and we complained to the manager who could not even be bothered to offer an apology. I do not write this review lightly because I seldom complain and was a waitress for many years and I understand how hard the job can be however this waitress had few tables and even less manners. We were thoroughly disappointed and will not be back to stay or to eat.
