Stopped for lunch, great location and views but don't expect great value. I had their Fish and Chips (supposedly award-winning) and it was horrible, bland, tasteless fish and frozen fries, you can't claim greatness and serve frozen potatoes. I've had better at Captain D's plus it was $21 plus $3.50 for iced tea (come on, $3.50 for iced tea). Stick with the sandwhiches which run $14-$17 and looked much better.
We stopped here to grab a bite to eat on our way back down. We had them change our dining room order to a "to go" order because we could not stand all the flies in the dinning room !! We were still charged an "included 17% gratuity" even though our order was to go. $106.00 for 5 sandwiches and drinks is a bit much, so is 17% gratuity. On a good note, the BLT&A sandwich was excelent
Stayed 3/11-3/13/08 in room #10. Great bed and bedding; nice seating area; cute gas stove. Tiny tacky bathroom/shower; tacky sofa cover; cheap blinds... No cobwebs, spiders or dirt. Based on other reviews, the room did not surprise me, thou shower was really marginal; so were blinds, lights.
Important to know 10 thru 7 have best location, all along a row. Rooms 5&6 are perpendicular and face parking lot, not ocean. Rooms 4 thru 1 face ocean and parking lot. Can't comment on 1-6 very well beyond that. Seems to me 8&9 are very close to 10 in view. 7 also, but it does adjoin the parking area.
Service was just fine; really friendly people, esp the lunch crew.
Huge Downside: the dinner menu/food is awful. They have award winning fish&chips--get them. But u can't have them for dinner. The website and printed brochure says u can, but the waitress says "we turn off the fryer at 4:30". Not listed on the menu. So we ordered blackened cod, and broiled cod. Other choices were mostly cream sauces. Both our meals were horrible. Think bad hospital food. No seasoning-none- over cooked, tasteless fish. 2 spears of broccoli and some carrots (not soggy, the only rookie mistake they avoided, but tasteless too. Entrees were $25 and up. Beers $5.50. So $100 for absolutely horrible food; I would have happily paid the outrageous $100 for fish/chips, but u can't get them for dinner.
Do not eat dinner there. Just don't do it. You'll regret it. I promise. And if u have bad food somewhere else, just tell yourself, "well, we tried". Got a local recommendation for River Inn but couldn't try it... maybe 20 miles North... saw it.. looked like a great vibe.
The view from room 10 is great, thou none face west, so u have to go out to see sunset. Sound of surf at night was awesome. They have a bluff behind the cabins, w/ winding path, benches at the top. Nice, very nice. Flashlight; wine glasses in room.
Did I mention the dinner was horrible and over priced... It shocks me they don't address this. All those cars u see there... they're British tourists... lovely people who've endured bad food for centuries... demand more... if u stay there, leave for dinner, or eat something good in your room... pretzels come to mind.
