I enjoyed dining at the Windrift Restaurant. The wait staff was exceptional. Courteous, friendly and most accommodating. I particularly enjoyed my meal as well. At the suggestion of the person who recommended I go, I decided on the Crab Meat Au Gratin. It was absolutely...More

We frequent the Windrift often. Always pleased with all our meals. Good Pizzas, fresh suishi, good burgers and fries. Plenty of options to choose from an atmosphere, piano bar, outside dining, and fine dining. Love the Windrift!!

The place is nice, but the food had absolutely no flavor at all. I had the pulled chicken tacos and my husband had a turkey club. Both were wanting of seasoning. I also ordered a sangria which was like drinking a fruit punch. Very disappointed!

The Windrift use to be our favorite place to eat a casual meal. They have done an amazing job with the renovations, but unless you go in when they are not crowded, it is very loud inside.

Great lunch & dinner menu. Cocktails are awesome. Good selection of beers too. We go to Avalon/Stone Harbor every August. We always go to the Windrift. Love to eat with a view of the beach!

I'm not sure, they are ocean side instead of bay side so they are unlikely to have places to dock a boat but I would call the hotel directly to find out just in case.
