The food, while providing lots and lots of choices, was just "meh." The gal at the omelet station was quite rude when I asked what the process was for ordering an omelet. When the server finally brought my omelet it contained the wrong ingredients. The view is lovely and the live piano music was nice to listen to while dining.... More

Thank you for visiting us during our popular Sunday Brunch extravaganza.

It was date night and we wanted to be near the water, since I had not been here in years, we decided to give it a shot. The views and sunset were great, the staff really tried but kept saying they were under staffed, so service timing was not up to par. We were done with our appetizer before the... More

We had dinner and breakfast here as we stayed at the hotel. Reasonable prices (especially Breakfast) and the coupons for kids was a big help on the wallet. Would recommend if you are staying at the hotel.

We visited Tradewinds on a Wednesday evening (8pm) in late July. It was not busy and were immediately seated. The hostess asked us what table we wanted and we picked one in the corner. Our server came and moved us to a table with a view of the ocean. This is not a complaint, don't take it as such. She... More

I went last year and ate a very bland buffet. It has been replaced with a menu that includes steak and eggs, eggs benedict, chicken and waffles, frittatas, etc. Much more creative menu. Still can eat indoors or out on the patio, both with great vistas of the beach. Service was great. Richard kept that coffee coming!

The room was immaculate with an amazing view. The service was phenomenal - for a romantic bday dinner we were very pleased.

We loved that they offered happy hour for lunch every day. I loved their crab cake sliders, the tai chili wings and the cheesy chili fries. All foods and drinks are $5.00. You can't beat that price. The staff are friendly and you can view the beach while eating. On some says they have live entertainment.
