Stayed at the hotel and had a few meals at Peninsula Grill which were wonderful. I've never had corned beef hash and eggs with real corned beef. My husband had the Avocado Toast breakfast every day!

My husband and I had reservations (recommended) and the restaurant was quite busy. Although I don't believe there is a dresscode, I suggest business casual. They have an inside dining room as well as a beautiful outdoor patio. We went in June so it was...More

Jacket is not required, but many men do wear them. My husband did not, he was fine with a collard shirt. It is within walking distance. We walked and it was between .5-1 mile.

We look forward to your visit. We request business casual attire when dining at Peninsula Grill. Dining at the bar is more relaxed as is the courtyard. Cheers, Ryan

I didn't see any when we were there in November but it was also nearly 80 degrees during the day then. I would expect they either do have heaters or they don't open the patio if its too chilly.
