“Everything Great, Except the Noise”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

The service and food were great, but the overwhelming noise made any conversion, short of yelling at the person next to you, impossible. This is a less than pleasant environment for a meal with friends.

“Great appetizer!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Recently ordered appetizers and salad at the bar. The small lobster tail and filet kabob were great. The crab bites were okay and the skald was very good. Good pace for a quick bite to eat, good wine and nice music.

“Great food and Entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Was down the shore during the off season but the Windrift had a super band. The "Big House Band" was very entertaining and helped end our evening meal out with some dancing and a variety of cool tunes. The staff was very attentive and the drinks were super. A little pricey, but the view of the Ocean was fantastic to add to the ambiance. Very clean and the restrooms were immaculate for a beach town venue. I'd say this is a classy place in a very nice shore community/resort area.

“Ok food, lots of flies”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

The food was ok- ate here for breakfast and there were A LOT of flies in the restaurant. I know it's a beach hotel, so I try to give some leeway, but they should figure something out to keep the fly population down. We had to ask to have the ceiling fans turned on to try to deter the flies a bit. Breakfast was the usual breakfast fare. FYI- they can't serve alcohol until after 11AM (i.e. Bloody Mary's or Mimosas)
