It’s very crowded and takes a while to be waited on even with standing and sitting at the bar. Especially if the restaurant is busy and people are waiting on tables! Beautiful views of the course!

Phenomenal view! Have a meal and/or drink on the porch, watch the golfers finish, feel the ocean breeze, enjoy a wonderful afternoon or evening. Reserve if you can; it’s often crowded.

It is in a gated community and they won't let you look around without a reason/destination. When you get to the gate, tell them you are going to the golf course to have lunch and check the course out. They will give you a... More
