Basic hotel breakfast, nothing super fancy but good. I had lox and bagels and they gave me a lot which was great! Staff was friendly and fast.

The worst crab cake I have ever had! The cream of crab was extremely salty. Even the salad was blah. Something is off with most of the staff, they are unprofessional and dress like they are at a BBQ just a weird vibe. Our serve...was very nice and professional.More

We ate our dinner, then breakfast and lunch at the Horizons. Dinner was way more than we expected and had to take most of it back to our room. Portion sizes were huge! Our waitress was top notch and the food was done to perfection....We ordered our breakfast and lunch to be picked up and eaten on our ocean view balcony. Again very good and the portion sizes more than enough! We will be eating here again!More

Our family of 4 had dinner at Horizons on August 26, 2021. Our bill was $160 and the food was the worst we ever had at a restaurant. The shrimp was like eating a rubber tire. The pasta was drenched in oil and butter. We...are terribly disappointed. We wouldn't even give this restaurant one star if we didn't have to. Run, don't walk away, from this garbage.More

Absolutely horrible. Restaurant was short of staff and you could feel the waitstaff frustration. Food was so bad the kids didn't finish anything. Burgers, steak and crab legs were dry dry dry. When we spoke with the watier he apologized but pointed out he didn't...cook the food. For the price they charge you would expect more. I understand short of staff but still a horrible experience. Thank goodness for the amazing live band.More

We went for dinner recently and had to wait 30 minutes for a table despite plenty of tables available. I asked if it was because of staffing issues and was told yes. When we did get a table it took awhile to get a server...who told us it was her first day on the job. I didn't get her name. We finally ordered and it took over a half hour to get our food which was just so-so, nothing spectacular. I felt bad for the waitress as she seemed like she wanted to do well but was probably poorly trained. Considering the expense of the meal and issues with staffing I doubt if I will return even though I'm a guest at the hotel. This visit only gets 2-stars as the service doesn't warrant 3-stars. On a side note, the music was so loud it was difficult to have a conversation. Disco music and a spiral lighted dance floor doesn't lend to a quiet, peaceful dining experience.More

We usually do at least one seafood buffet while in OC, but due to Covid, we decided to do a sit down dinner instead. I saw an ad in the local paper that Horizon’s had reasonably priced crab legs, which all my children enjoy. My...youngest girls shared the two pounds of legs, while I tried the house special of grilled salmon. My older girls split a crab cake sandwich and an order of the seafood Alfredo. Everything was delicious and hot. The view was lovely and social distancing was in effect with partial seating and masks when not at the table. Our server Olivia was great, and the prices were extremely decent. We’ll visit again.More
