We were staying at Sun Dial so we opted to try out the restaurant there and were not disappointed. First, the view is breathtaking. You are right on the ocean. Second, the food is excellent. We liked it so well we ate there three times...More

The views were great. They can accommodate large groups. The menu was very heavy on the fish end of things, so if you have people in your party that don't enjoy this, then pick another place. Upscale food and prices. The people who got fish...More

The Thanksgiving buffet at Waterview was a wonderful dining experience. Various staggered seatings were offered, no one was rushed. Service was great and the food offerings were all wonderful, especially the Pork Loin with Fig-Apricot Relish. The price included non-liquor drinks, which were reasonably priced....More

We really enjoyed the appetizers (pot stickers, shrimp w/bacon) and entrees (hanger steak, linguini with shrimp) that we ordered, although the dessert (key lime pie) was a bit too tart.. The lighting and décor is very outdated, and is downright depressing. The staff was short-handed,...More
