Communal dining is a quintessential human experience. With that understanding, we simply must serve great food. In-season, locally sourced with quality ingredients, and impeccably prepared – for lunch and dinner. We'll be a gathering place for the community and guests in a fresh and new space that honors the legacy of the Lodge, while tantalizing the palette with flavors that celebrate the bounty that the area has to offer – from lush produce to the freshest catch. We aim to offer fair and approachable pricing – inviting locals regularly and inspiring visitors to make the trip – and to serve meals with the warmth and care of being in someone's home.

    We celebrated my husband’s birthday at The Sea Ranch Lodge. Everything from start to finish was outstanding! The local residents must be thrilled to have this gem open and alive in their beautiful community. We have already booked another reservation for dinner and plan to also go to have a drink and bar food in the bar area. The views are spectacular wherever you are seated. This should be at the top of your list if you are in the Sea Ranch area!

    Wonderful experience! We have been eagerly awaiting the reopening of the Lodge. It does not disappoint! Love that it is still “Sea Ranch true” but a lighter, brighter, fresher take. Kayla, our server, was the best—friendly, enthusiastic, super helpful!—and the food was exquisite. Loving this new version of the Lodge! Thank you—worth the wait!

    The Sea Ranch Lodge is a destination in and of itself. The menu was interesting and the food was excellent. So much so that we went two nights in a row! We had our dog with us, so sat outside and that was lovely. Note that the restaurant seating is behind the lodge, so no sea view. The second night, we arrived early and sat with a sea view while we sipped our cocktails. Definitely recommended! You can also order from the cafe menu there.

    This restaurant is by far the very best restaurant in the Sea Ranch/Gualala area. Having come to Sea Ranch for over 40 years, and having experienced the ups and downs of dining in the area, including earlier versions of The Sea Ranch Lodge Restaurant, the current restaurant is at a level beyond anything we have been able to enjoy in the past. The food is at an exceptional level, the service and staff are superb, and the ambiance of the restaurant is enhanced by the enthusiastic dinners enjoying their meals. My only concern is as the restaurant is becoming more popular, one needs to reserve at a reasonable time in advance, unheard of in earlier days. One will not be disappointed!!!

    The ambiance this evening was Jazz Night with Harrison and friends, a bit loud but lovely music was the backdrop for this iconic, refurbished building on the rugged North Coast. The restaurant, bar and lounge were packed (hint: get there early on these nights!) These appetizers are a must: Tempura fried fresh rock cod with yuzu & minced onions and garlic and the light, crispy Focaccia bread and baked whole garlic with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. For the meal, both entrees were stunners, out of the park hits - The Duck (a local favorite) and The Salmon (Fresh from the coast). Fabulous flavors. We also added in the pomme frites, and while they were not as thin as we'd have liked, still scrumptious with a dusting of parmesan, light, hot and crispy. But, alas, we were too full for desert!

    Very disappointed! We were here a few months ago and had a really fabulous dinner; but this was a completely different experience. It started with the greeter, who was practically hostile -- not the slightest bit welcoming or warm or friendly. Clearly she is not the right person for the job. And the room we were seated in had no shades against the setting sun, and was full of tiny annoying flies. Our server was good; but the food was not. Everything seemed warmed over, and the tomato soup was lumpy and tasted strongly of very cheap parmesan. After our previous visit, we'd been delighted that the lodge had seemed to really have come into its own; but after this recent visit, it seems like just another tremendously over-priced tourist trap trading on its view and setting.

    This is definitely the place to come when you are on the Coast! The Executive Chef has put together a great team in the kitchen! The service and staff did an excellent job! If your a foodie don’t miss this restaurant. Sea Ranch has made the investment in the restaurant and it shows! The menus is well done! There is something for everyone! You will love the ocean view.

    It was a decent experience, in a great natural beauty setting. However, the food only ok. We had the chicken and the duck dish, both a bit underwhelming in taste and presentation. The duck was a small portion for a main course.

    The food exceeded our expectations and then some. I had the mushroom fettucini which was so flavorful and delicious. My husband had the pork chop which re really loved - very moist and not dry. We also had the halibut ceviche, the bread plate, and the chocolate tart for dessert (a small piece but exceptionally rich and worth every bite). Jams was our server and she was lovely, attentive, and very friendly. She gave us the perfect amount of attention and space. Having a window view perfected the entire evening. By the way, as we were leaving we met a nice gentleman who sat outside with his dog having dinner. He had TWO complete mushroom fettucini dinners himself — that’s how good it is! :)

    Our server Kayla was amazing. She made us feel welcome and invited which is not always how we've felt at TSR lodge bar, cafe, and restaurant in the past. Although we gave her a huge tip, I really hope she receives appreciation from the management. She is a gem who provides flawless service with seemingly no effort. The food is delicious at TSR lodge restaurant, as always.

    We like sitting on the outside front porch, which is quiet, cozy and comfortable with a heater. We have high expectations because of past excellent meals. We weren’t disappointed! The smoked trout and capers appetizer was delish!! Definitely order that! I had the roast Petaluma chicken which was crispy and spicy on the outside, with moist dark meat on the inside. I still don’t know what the chef dredges the fries in to coat them, but the are crispy and perfect! My husband had the fish with some very delicate veggies. I didn’t notice his meal much, except that he finished it all. The service is very professional with a touch of western Sonoma friendliness.
