Food and service -- excellent! COVID guidelines followed well. One of us had the Chicken Piccata and the other the Veggie Pizza. Both were perfect and delicious! First time dinning at this restaurant and we shall return! Thank you!

Thanksgiving reservation was for 7pm. We were seated at 7:25, and surprised to see empty tables. Someone took drink order taken at 7:35. We reserved the prefixe Thanksgiving dinner; $55. per person, soup or salad was the only variable. Another person took meal order; we ordered soup. 15 minutes later, another waiter came to take drink order again. Then another waiter came with the 1 glass of wine (no ice tea ) AND 1 dinner in plastic container and said, they mistakenly packaged it "to go". I said "no, we are dining in and both ordered the prefixe Thanksgiving meal". She sighed and took it away, and brought 1 soup with 2 spoons. I asked where's her soup (my daughter). She said, "Oh, I'm not sure". I was ready to leave but we came from out of town, staying in a hotel on Thanksgiving so hard to find an alternative. She came back with another soup - we flagged down someone else and asked for napkins; she brought 2 place settings. The dinner food was good, but just warm, and pieces of bone in the turkey. When it came to dessert, she said they had apple tart. Again I said we ordered the pre fixe, which came with pumpkin custard pie. She said no, they only had apple tart, I pointed to the menu, then she added, "we ran out". We took the tart to go. Due to COVID restrictions, we didn't join other family members this year, just us 2, planned a special couple days out of town. We were very disappointed, NO apologies for ALL the craziness, maybe not charging for the substitute dessert, anything, but no nothing...

Spent Thanksgiving here. I went in with low(ish) expectations and was super surprised at how good the food was. For a day that could have ended up with salty, mass produced food, 7 mile seemingly went the extra mile to make things special for diners. I would definitely return.

We both had the pizza. My pizza was the Italian sausage & onions and my wife had the BBQ chicken...
The pizza crust was great, moist. Overall the pizzas were very good and a nice ambiance on the patio with a great view.

Food was mediocre at best. Kids enjoyed the pizza. I don’t think I’ll go back. Pretty disappointing for a nice hotel/resort; thought their food would have been better.

Definitely a good spot if you’re on vacation and staying at a hotel near by. We live in the area and thought it would be a good place to take the family. Our experience was less than expected. The burgers were terrible, pizzas were good, wine was good, martinis were very bad and prices overall were a high. There are so many good places in Carlsbad, we will not be back here.

The staff treated us so well and we enjoyed our family style meal . We had a nice table . The cocktails were exceptional, old fashioned was one of the best I ever had . Also ordered was Colorado Bull Dog - I called it Carolina Bull Dog but bartender figured it out once I told him ingredients. Super delicious. Our salad , pizza and pasta were made to order . We added cheese and pepperoni for minimal charge . Family style meal priced at $35 for family . What a great deal .

Service was poor. Server never came around, never cleared dirty dishes or refilled drinks. Had to get up from table to catch her. We eventually sought out the Manager.
Bartender sloppy bar-keep and horrible cocktail. Need other staff to help out more.

Breakfast would had been better at Denney's. Luke warm coffee, didn't remember about the gluten allergy they were told about when I ordered. The substitute for the toast was plain yogurt(yuck), the breakfast potatoes were way too spicy to eat, and the bacon rated old and reheated. Infact nothing was hot. I would not recommend eating here.

Great restaurant for a family or somewhere with a nice view. It is located in a hotel so call for parking cause that was confusing. Pizza and salad was great. Drinks aren’t anything to write home about but are traditional and will have what you want. Our kids loved the food which is hard to find decent kids menu. Definitely recommend for a family outing that’s not super quiet and stressful.

Party of 10 of us. We’d recently dined there and had such a nice time, we returned with our guests. Stellar all the way through. Axel (not Rose) was our server and hit a grand slam. We will return again and again.

The food was amazing and the portions were very generous! The service was the worst. We gave our credit card to prompt the server to get us our bill. She pocketed the credit card and didn't provide us our dessert (which she was supposed to scoop for us) until thirty minutes and THREE reminders later. After the second reminder, she decided to engage in a long conversation with a customer for another 8 minutes. When we reminded her again she was snappy and rude. The indoor ambiance has a cafeteria feel, but the outdoor seating is great.

We had a very nice Thanksgiving dinner at 7 Mile Kitchen - I loved that it was one of the few options that was not a "Thanksgiving buffet" for $90/person. We got the GF pizza, pasta and pumpkin pie. The pie and pasta were delicious. I've had better GF pizza - but all in all, it was great! Took a peak at the breakfast menu - we'll come back for that next time we're in town.

They were somewhat busy. It is in a resort which should have been my clue to stay away but I thought we would give it a try. We waited almost 10 minutes for our server. Server didn’t ask if we wanted anything besides water which seems like server questions 101. She didn’t ask if we needed anything but asked kind of strangely “everything is good, right?” She rarely smiled. In the end the power plant wood-fired pizza (which featured artichokes and broccoli) was delicious. The smoked chicken fries were also good but the chicken was dry. We liked the decor but it was so loud. We may just leave this place for the visitors and stick to other local places.
