“Great view”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

View here is great. Service is spotty. Food is usually good. Have been going there for years. Seems food depends on the latest chef.

“Great views, good meal”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The view here is amazing, also great beach access spot! The hotel is very good, especially pool facilities. The food at the restaurant is kind of average, sadly. We would love to eat here more often were it more impressive. However, this restaurant is still worth the visit. Nice place to have a bite to eat and get out of the wind after walking on the beach.

“Spectacular views, nice ambiance, great service and food”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Tried this on a fluke. Its located by one of the few places providing easy access to the beach and saw the restaurant. Had eaten at the highly touted Waterfront Depot the evening before and thought this would be a good choice for lunch after a booked excursion with Sandland Adventures. It was a fantastic choice. Youre on the beach! Ordered the beef dip and its probably the best Ive ever had. The bread was wonderful, prime rib of beef exquisitely flavored, tender, lean, sliced thin and cabernet au jus to kill for. Did I mention the fries? Homemade, thin, perfectly fried so not greasy and you cant get enough of their flavor! Couple this with awesome views and good service for a winning combo. Liked it so much went back for breakfast next morning, even though breakfast was included in our accommodations. The food was again excellent; however, there should be more corned beef in the hash! I did notice that for the evening service there are table cloths. A criticism would be the temp in inside is too cold. This restaurant is connected to the Driftwood Shores Inn.

“Eat beforehand at 6pm.”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

This is an excellent and beautiful venue, with excellent servers, and really special food! Should be 5 stars! However, we made a reservation for 7pm - turned out to be "preseating" for submitting an order at 8pm, food delivered at 9. Dinner not concluded until 10:30 pm, 3 1/2 hours after reservation. Repeated once more with the same result. Very odd.
