This restaurant has really good breakfasts the rest of the menu is good but limited. Sitting outside give you a great view of the ocean and has heat lamps as needed. Breakfast on Weekends has a buffet as well as the menu I liked the menu best and they do have great fresh squeezed orange juice. It is a good... More

My wife and enjoyed our breakfast at Chandler's. No breakfast buffet during the week, but lots of choices from the regular breakfast menu. Very good eggs and bacon. The restaurant has a very nice view overlooking the pool and a view of the ocean across a road. Restaurant has a rustic feel with wood beam ceilings and wood furniture. Very... More

We stayed at this hotel so we got to take in both breakfast and dinner. I love the evening setting with the fire pits and a one band singer. Feels like a cruise ship setting.

We were recommended to Chandler's from a colleague that lived in the area. We weren't disappointed! 4 out of 5 of us had the surf & turf and loved it. The 'Turf' was a fully loaded Lobster Rissotti The other one had a chicken salad that she also enjoyed. Ended with a couple desserts (didn't want to blow our budget)... More

We had appetizers and main course but it was really good so we ended up getting dessert as well. Jose was really helpful with the menu and also pleasant conversation. Would surely recommend.

If you're staying at the hotel then it's a must. Service wasn't the best all week but the food was mediocre. Tried about everything on the menu because we were here for 5 days. Really enjoyed the cesear salad. Shrimp/ lobster Benedict was a hit as well.

I was here for a regional meeting. They were accommodating a very large group of us with a pre-set menu for the group. I let the waiter know that I was gluten & dairy free and asked if I was going to be able to have anything. They did their best to make sure I had a delicious GF/DF dinner... More

Friendly service, but just a hectic mid range hotel bar in the area. Sorry. Too family crowded for my taste, but I guess if you're there with family it would be fine. But it's not a cozy vibe overlooking the ocean. It's busy, and noisy. My food was small for the money, albeit tasty. I think there are so many... More

Best local Carlsbad meeting place. The staff are perfectly trained. Jillian, Ben and Garrett in the bar are amazing. If you have a bad day they will improve it in no time, It's a great place for socializing as well as Buisness meetings.
