Diner Reviews
  • "Bar scene got a bit noisy, which I thought was fun, not disruptive (and this was on a Monday no less). And the outdoor firepit area was a perfect escape to finish our bottle of wine and relax after dinner. Great date spot, highly recommend."

  • "When we arrived we decided to have lunch at Shades. There are several great restaurants in the area but we had just valeted the car and did not want to get it again. We ordered the turkey club sandwich and a caesar salad. The caesar had absolutely no flavor at all! The worse salad I ever had at a restaurant. The sandwich had some sort of onion jam which was way too sweet we had to scrape it off the sandwich. Boy do we wish we had gone out!!!"

  • "We were staying at the Hilton Resort where this restaurant is located. It was a very enjoyable brunch but I wish they had an omelet station instead of having to let the server know what we wanted. But all in all it was pretty good. The hotel was excellent."

  • "we were surprised at the quality and flair of the food.lovely salad with grill prawns and a fresh herbal vinaigrette, plus an array of appealing sandwiches made the menu interesting. The iced tea was my favorite tropical and served appealingly and replenished often. Would have had dessert if we had room!"

  • "Patio is a very enjoyable setting. Waiter did a great job. It was a beautiful day and the view of the ocean was amazing. We have celebrated my daughter's birthday a few times at the restaurant. The food is just ok but the setting and the service made up for it."

  • "50 a person for brunch is a rip off. Came with a group of 5, we were very disappointed with the selection of food. Especially the Alaskan king crab legs, they were frozen still wet and taste like rubber. You can't taste anything crabby about it. The leg of lamb was aweful and dry, the breakfast food wasn't so good. I have been here several times in the past, and either the new manager isn't doing it right or it's just they have went down hill"

  • "The staff stood around visiting rather than seating us when we arrived. They did not honor our seating request and instead squeezed 3 of us at a table for 2. Service was poor. We were ignored while they attended to a large group. Food was mediocore. The fruit they served as a side was so under ripe you couldn't even cut it with a knife. Presentation was poor. The price far exceeded the quality of the food and service. Will not be visiting this restaurant again."

  • "Wonderful for an evening out, especially for a special occasion. The food is very good and the service is nice. I got the short rib pot roast and it was delicious! I do suggest you bring a sweater. It is always cool in the dining room."
