First we sat at the corner end of the lounge. Maybe they didn't see us, took a long time for us to get drinks. Then nobody came to take our orders for 15 minutes, we had to go to the counter twice to ask. Once the food was served. Everything went well.

2 couples spent a very enjoyable evening in this lounge, which is in the Black Rock hotel. The food is prepared in the full scale restaurant nearby, not in the lounge, which may account for the not so hot temperature of the food. The food delivery service is very slow so give it a miss for another day if you're... More

GREAT staff and the food was very good. Megan, Tara were fun and welcoming to chat with. Calamari was delicious as well as the burger. Do suggest trying Big Beach drink (ask Tara) it was delicious.

Stopped in for a beer a couple days ago during the storm. The waves crashing on the rocks was so hypnotizing. The service was very good, friendly waitress - even brought me a beer sample with out me asking for it. It is a spacious bar with very comfy seats. Also very quiet. Perfect for couples. Perfect place to stop... More

Lovely burning gas fire to keep you warm. Impressive views of the ocean all around where we watched the storm roll in. We also spotted a sea otter! That aside, it was a very cosy environment, the burgers were nice and with a glass of cider what more could you want. The staff were friendly too.

I know that there have been mixed reviews. Our B&B host warned us that it can be hit or miss. On our night, it was a hit. The views are always amazing. Our food was top notch and the service was as well. Perhaps there is more of a focus now on service. I would totally recommend the lounge for... More
