Splurged for my husband's birthday. While this is the more casual restaurant at this resort, we had a wonderful "coffee rubbed" steak and perfect service. Great place for a special occassion. We definitely will return.

Spectular view from the patio, wonderful food, unusually friendly waitress. But very expensive .$91 for two sandwiches andctwo drinks and $8 parking. Highly recommend for a special occasion. Be sure to walk out to the ocean.

My boyfriend and I ate dinner on the patio at Loft. It was heated and they also give you blankets (and champagne for a toast!) All the staff was very courteous and ,made sure that we had a memorable dining experience. Chef Overton came out and introduced himself to us! Couples dining at Loft are given champagne when they are seated. The bread basket has many types of bread (the cheesy ones taste great!) and the wait staff was happy to refill ours a 2nd time. I had the skirt steak which was very good, and My BF ordered the swordfish and the Butternut squash soup. The risotto with mushroom was so good, I must have tons of cream in it!
The location overlooking the christmas tree and the ocean waves (which have lights on them so that you can see them) was beautiful.
I enjoyed my dinner, the location and staff were superb, its not 5 stars because it is expensive (18 for the soup!) - but I knew this going in, so if you go, pay and enjoy!

Gorgeous view, good food and great service. We sat on the patio and had breakfast each morning. The people provided extremely good service, we really liked the food and the atmosphere was beautiful.

A must for anyone in the area. The food is delicious, the Chef is creative and willing to work with any food preferences or requests. The service is great. The outdoor tables have an impeccable view.
