Second time here, and just as good as the first! The cocktails were great, (we ordered the Butterly Margarita and a whiskey sour) the food was delicious, (we ordered burgers, winter salad, hummus, the flatbread with pancetta and cherries) and server was attentive and kind. Highly recommend this restaurant when you’re looking for a casual but nice experience.
Service was very good and professional. food was very good,chicken sandwich with side salad. Only negative, never enough salad dressing!
Chandlers is a fun place to go for drinks to watch the sunset. It has a great view of the ocean across the street (101). The food used to be very good but the last two times we visited the food was not good. We still go there for the drinks though and the staff are very friendly.
Excellent location - looking across the road you can see the ocean. Very nice outside patio and wonderful ambiance. The fish tacos were way too "fishy" tasting and not at all worth the price, not to mention the fact that the taste was offensive. The coconut shrimp was quite good though. Perhaps a little too dry and crunchy, but tasty nonetheless. The margaritas here are sublime - loved our drinks. And we also appreciated the fast, fun, and dynamic service from our waiter (Jose). So, overall this is a place I would come back to. Hoping the fish tacos were a one-time disappointment.
Lots of staff to help.
Food was delicious and prepared nicely. Ambience was friendly, quiet and everyone enjoying the meal.
Staff were really good and friendly.
Fabulous sunsets; attentive service. Validated parking. great date spot!
Chandler’s is close to our home and it’s a great place for a weekday dinner. Although we arrived after sunset, the views of the sunset from most places in the restaurant are stunning. Jose is our favorite staff member. After our lengthy absence due to Covid and travel, it was like coming home to see him and catch up. Plus, Jose is just the best, friendly, attentive and always in an upbeat mood….his positive attitude is contagious!
Nothing great. Service is ok but slow. Food was below average. There are much better places around.
Great location, good food and fun drinks! I had the Butterfly Flutterby Margarita with butterfly pea, it comes to the table blue, then they add pineapple sour and it turns a lovely shade of pink!
Met a good friend for a delicious breakfast at Chandler's and sat on the outside patio with a view of the ocean. The Irish coffee was spot-on! Our server, Joanne, was extremely gracious and attentive. We ended up staying through lunch, and were treated to a birthday brownie! Will be back!
One of our favorite spots. Great service, good food, fair prices.
Very nice, nice setting and beautiful view. Good menu, just not a lot of appetizers.
Lovely ocean view with a side of mild road noise. Service was a little spotty (took 10 min to be seated because hostess was racing around doing other things), but it's rare to find a breakfast place that takes reservations, has outdoor seating, and has a view. I'd go back so that's saying something. We had avocado toast, decadent French toast, and an omelet.
Chandlers has really stepped up the quality of their menu. Our go-to is the short rib flatbread but the burgers are top shelf too. I prefer their traditional drinks over the specials. They are well made. Of course, most of us really come for the ocean views. What's great is that you get those great views along with good food, excellent drinks and superior service.
This place isn’t what it once was. Scaled down menu wasn’t great at all. Service was slow. Food was mediocre. I will t go back until they are fully back to normal.
Everyone from the valet to the hostess to the server to busboy were genuinely nice and attentive. We enjoyed every minute of our dinner experience.
We had breakfast there on Saturday for my birthday.
Food was good but we had to wait more than 30 minutes.
When the waitress heard that it’s my Birthday, she served me a delicious cheesecake.
It was on the house ! What a nice surprise it was !!!
The hotel and the view of the ocean are a big plus.
We are definitely coming back!
Offering the tables some bread would be a good thing
We had a nice time. The only drawback was we were seated beside a big group of guests who were rowdy and noisy. I am not sure why people have to be noisy and loud to have a good time. The food was good , I had mussels, my husband had fish tacos…..delicious . Our server Juan was attentive and helpful. We’ll be back.
Service score based on food was over an hour late. Then a little cold.
Semi ocean front view
Absolutely amazing view and patio setting. Quite an experience
Came to Cape Rey for the weekend. The staff at the restaurant went above and beyond any expectations to help set up a proposal surprise!!! Kelly and Kait were amazing to work with all week coordinating with the pastry chef to make a special dessert and ensuring we had an ocean side table. Alondra our server was in on the surprise and did amazing to make the night as special and surprising for my fiancé as possible. Could not ask for more accommodating and responsive staff!!!
The food and cocktails were excellent! We had the Agua Chile to start. It’s like ceviche, but better!! Then the 6oz steak was so tender and pan seared salmon was good too. The New Yorker cocktail is superb! This place is pricey! I had a gift card from my kids for $150 and had to add $5 and tip on top of that. I’d go again, but only for a special occasion.
You won't find a tastier Cheese Board served with the best toasted bagette, walnuts and fruit. Definitely a must starter. The Coconut Shrimp was incredibly succulent and done to perfection. And if you have the opportunity to get Jose as your server, you'll enjoy a very fun and fabulous evening!
The hostess was very helpful, moving us several times, less in sun; finally moved us inside. Very accommodating! Eduardo was a terrific server! Loved seeing dear friend Rigo, too! Good friend for many years at several venues!
Chose Chandler's to celebrate 80th Birthday, have had positive experience before. This visit, food good, service very disappointing, Very slow, long waits between server contacts, long wait for deliveries, ignored by servers walking by our table when we hailed them, finally got up to leave, think we could have left without paying, even long wait after asking for bill. Only a MAYBE for another visit.
The steak dinner was delicious - perfect doneness and well presented. The mussels portion was huge! Wedge salads were best ever. Thank you, Brock, for your excellent service. We had a delightful evening at Chandler's and will go back again.
Friendly staff, nice options, lovely view!
Went to celebrate our 25th Anniversary w our best friends, The food was very good, and our server Jose did his best with service however it took over an hour to get a second round of drinks and the appetizers came out at the same time as the meal making it impossible to eat everything. Each meal was served one at a time? The timing was just off across the board. They did make it right by taking the appetizer off the bill but it was unfortunate.
Alandra our waitress was great!
Was great. Asked for the best table with a view since we were celebrating a birthday... we didnt get that but thankfully almost every table has somewhat of a view. Great food!
cheese board was exceptional, outdoor seating has ocean view
Nice atmosphere and friendly service. Would come here again.
The food was absolutely amazing! Highly recommend the 6oz filet!! Service was wonderful and staff were very friendly. And you can’t beat the view from the patio!
Waited a very long time for our order to be taken.
Ribeye Steak was amazing! Plenty for 3 people!!!! Great place to watch the sunset…. Beautiful!
Beautiful views, delicious food, unique drink menu
delicious, great for outdoor dinning, wonderful view
The cheese board was about the very best we've ever enjoyed and extraordinarily delicious and beautifully prepared at a very reasonable price. If you love Mussels, this is the place. Their Wedge was also incredibly tasty, and even better yet, with their perfectly grilled chicken slices. Thanks to our server Jose, the evening was the most enjoyable we've experienced in a very long time!
