    Service was great. Food was very simple. The 12oz steak is exactly what it sounds like. No sides. Ordered medium and came out well done. Dry thin chewy simple. Only highlight was the mushrooms and caramelized onions on top. Won’t be returning.

    Waiter used to be bartender at Islands and it shows. Spent most of the time talking and not taking care of basics- like bringing out food…flatware or even another glass of wine

    The location is excellent and our server Jose was exceptional. The food was superb. Problem, the portions were comically small. It took all of 4 bites to finish my tiny portion of sea bass. My wife who is a very lite eater at 5’1 and 110 had the octopus which was fantastic but again finished in a few bites. Just charge more and don’t try so hard on portion control.

    Everything was great but you need to update the menu online. I planned this dinner for my sister who is vegan. Online showed a veggie stack item that was great to order besides a burger. When we get there it was no longer on the menu, but the chef said he can still make it. Almost got disappointed. Other than that, food was great .

    Misleading ambiance- photos showed deck with ocean view - looked amazing. In reality - little concrete patio with zero personality abutting the road - yes ocean can be seen but it was no fabulous setting… very disappointed. Food good. Waiter was great - but I would not bother going there ever again.

    As a returning customer to Chandler's, the positive experience I've always had there keeps me coming back. Enjoy the patio tables with the ocean view near the fire pit- my favorite spot. The staff is always courteous, friendly and knowledgeable about the latest menu choices. The food is good and reasonably priced for the quality of dining experience and location.

    Waited 45 minutes for breakfast and then they said they don’t have breakfast only lunch since it was now lunch on Sunday. Could have told us that before we waited almost an hour. We were staying at the hotel and it is the only restaurant. Need smarter people at the hostess station

    The food was really subpar. The quality of meat, the dressings. And especially for the price! Would never recommend! It’s a gorgeous setting so it’s really unfortunate that the food doesn’t match the view or the price.

    The food was very nice for a hotel restaurant, and I liked the options on the cocktail list. The servers were clearly overwhelmed and trying to move quickly, which led to a pretty poor service experience. About a quarter of my cocktail was spilled on the tray on the way to my table, and the server did not offer to replace the drink. I ended up not ordering a glass of wine with my entree because the server was in motion as soon as he placed down the plates. We waited a long time after eating the entree for the server to come back around, and the coffee I ordered with my dessert got completely forgotten.
