We spent a few days at The Wave, one of the homes for rent at Sea Ranch, and did most of our own cooking in its completely equipped kitchen. We decided to spend the last night at the Grill, which overlooks a rocky ocean point. Spectacular in the day-time, but it's not visible after dark. No need to book a... More

Disappointed with the quality of the food. The staff were friendly but the dinner of Monk fish that my husband ordered was only room temperature. Very few in the dining room . Would not dine here again on our next trip to this area

The service was great. The food not so much. They were out of a lot of regular menu items, which is odd for 6:30 on a Friday night. They did make substitutions, but it wasn't quite the same. You pay for the view, which is very nice, but the food could use some upgrades.

Ok maybe it was an "off" night maybe there was something else going on but when you raise your prices you better have something worth the value of the increased price. So we ordered and received a plate of calamari not only was there barely warm breading batter inside the uncooked calamari but they must have dumped all the crumbs... More

The only restaurant for Sea Ranch it offers a great night away from the vacation rental. They have various events (e.g. winemakers & local bands). Quality of dinners can vary.

We have dined here a number of times. Most recently we were here just before Valentine's Day. The sunset was fantastic and we had a window table which made it even better. My wife had halibut which she really enjoyed. I had the mussels and fries appetizer for an entrée and French onion soup. The mussels were outstanding. The onion... More

Outstanding service. They accommodating us - we are vegetarian & do not eat eggs. Best to let them know in advance of dietary needs. Great soups, pancakes, butternut squash ravioli, & risotto. The views are great - you can see the Pacific Ocean. The restaurant is part of Sea Ranch Lodge.

The only restaurant we recommend in the area is closed for remodeling. It's been years since we've been to the restaurant at the Sea Ranch Lodge, but decided to give it a try. The food was very good, and the service excellent. I had the prime rib which I would recommend. Of course looking out at the ocean is always... More
