We decided to have dinner away from the crowds of the circle so chose this restaurant. Wow...we had an outstanding dinner.
We ordered from the special menu available from 5 to 7 which includes a salad, main course, and dessert. Salad was very good but the Grouper special was outstanding. Large filet with plenty of flavor. And the desserts were wonderful. Everything looked and tasted great. And another nice thing about eating here is that wasn’t that busy and not noisy so conversation was easy. Outside dining is available. What a great value for the price. Although it isn’t cheap, it is certainly worth what we spent and we spent far less than we have at most other local restaurants Service was great as was the entire evening.
You won’t be disappointed.

We were staying in the hotel attached to the restaurant so it was convenient before heading down to the beach. We arrived between breakfast and lunch and had a little wait before they could input our order. The staff was very attentive and rushed put in our order as quick as they could. The food was decent.

This restaurant is in the Sandcastle Hotel. Great Breakfast, including the Breakfast Buffet for $16. Also had lunch and dinner once, as we were staying here. Really good food and fabulous wait staff. Wish I could remember their names!

We ate here 3 of the 4 nights we stayed at the Sandcastle hotel. This is a most pleasant restaurant with attentive staff and an excellent prix fixe sunset meal including salad and scrumptious dessert for $28. The view overlooks the pool and Gulf of Mexico, We also ate here for the breakfasts, which were included in our rate and were buffets. Outdoor seating is available.
