Pete's Sunset Grille Ratings and Reviews
HB residents looking for a good spot to host out of state guests for dinner. We decided on Pete Mallory's, but knew it would be busy! Our group ended up being larger than expected. The staff was great in accommodating us without any hesitation. Service was awesome. Good food, great band, and an exceptional sunset! Thanks for a great evening.
This is a beach-themed 'surf' restaurant that's a lot more polished than just a shack. It's integrated into the mall adjacent to the Hyatt Regency and looks out over a beautifully designed patio area that looks out to the ocean. You could enjoy an elegant meal or just a burger and fries and both would be appropriate here.
Wish it had been daylight, so we could have enjoyed the view, but after dinner we braved the wind and rain to walk across the patio and onto the pedestrian walkway over the Pacific Coast Highway. The set up is really beautiful.
We had fish tacos which were just delicious, a wonderful hamburger -- also perfect, albeit it cost $16 (wanted to add avocado to the burger, but that would have cost an additional $6!) -- and a great (very large) margarita.
There were families dining around us, but it was cheerful not noisy. Very casual dress code -- jeans, flip flops, sweatshirts -- but not at all shack like, as I said. You could come dressier and not feel out of place.
The only problem was that three of our entrées got sent to another table so we had to wait for them to make up more food while two of the people at our table had their food before us. We had a reservation to stay at the hotel so we didn't really want to spend Too much time at the restaurant. We were there a lot longer than we planned on being there because of the mixup. They were very gracious and gave us a free appetizer and a free dessert however it was an inconvenience to have to wait for three more entrées to be made up.
I have eaten here before and enjoyed the food and terrific location. This time the service and location still terrific, however the food was mediocre to awful! The kitchen took an unusually long time to produce the order, but it was the result that was extremely disappointing! Shrimp tacos were cold, over breaded and completely overpowered by a mayonnaise sauce that drenched the entire dish and completely overpowered anything else. The vegetable pesto flatbread was flavorless with little of the pesto and even less vegetables. The flatbread was cold, spongy and tasteless. Unbelievably, even the tomato salsa provided with the tacos was rancid! The one other dish - French fried green beans was acceptable - but again mostly opbreading. All in all a lot of money to pay for such mediocrity!
I was at this hotel for a 3 day conference. I am well aware that the hotel's restaurants are especially busy during conferences, but WOW! I had reservations for client lunches/meetings on 2 different days. BOTH days it was well over an hour and a half for our lunch to arrive. The first day they were apologetic, the second day they were non-apologetic and in fact, RUDE.
We attend the same conference every year, and next time will go elsewhere.
Clients missed important classes and other meeting due to the lack of service.
I am sure that the restuaurant can get occupancy information from the Hyatt, and staff accordingly, they just dont.
The menu has changed and the restaurant took off my favorite (surfer's stew) item. Some of the changes are nice, some not so great. It's always tough when your favorite items are removed. Glad to see the edamame on the menu still. It's still awesome. The frozen s'mores dessert was amazing.
Our dinner was great. All of the food was very good. The service was very good. It is pricey, because it's inside the Hyatt resort, but we all enjoyed our food. Note to the restaurant--can't anyone have a kids menu that has more than junk food--at least a grilled chicken option. Not all kids eat man-n-cheese and hamburgers every day.
Pete's Sunset Grille was a wonderful surprise. We had not heard of the restaurant before and took a chance on a guest's review. The food and service far surpassed our expectations. Live performer and casual atmosphere made the evening extremely enjoyable. Would we frequent this restaurant again...without a doubt.
This restaurant is located inside the Hayatt Resort Hotel, but don't let that scare you away. They have complementary valet parking up 4 hours. The restaurant is beach casual with a very interesting menu selection. I had a nice pork skewer which turned out to be just right for a,light meal. The service was attentive and the servers were very friendly.
Don't get stuck on the big triangle type of table like I did. Invited clients for lunch & its a total hassle to have clients have to pass plates back & forth. I was paying & she knew since I gave her a credit card b4 lunch started & I had a hard time Getting her attention. At the end ordered coffee & dessert but she had to have clients pass it over by then clients were talking & thought forget it it. Wasn't a good experience clients spilled stuff due to having to pass stuff over to us in that awkward table.
Was to expecting much from a hotel surf inspired restaurant but it is a great place. Our server was amazing & everything we ordered: wings, edamame, salad, chicken sandwich, and frozen pound cake were all amazing! The wings were some of the best I ever had. And the live music was great too!
The gentleman playing the guitar provided great music throughout the night. The restruant is nicely decorated with a great atmosphere. Our server did a nice job. Menu was not great, Food was over priced for what it was but as expected, alcohol was overpriced as well. Would be back if their was some specials for locals or something, otherwise probably not
Tried the summer buffet on a Friday night , when a band was playing. Nice selection of Mexican buffet with fish chicken, taco's home made chips, salsa, guacamole. Make sure you live room for desert. Nice fresh ingredients great taste, good value for the price.
