The ambiance was great, food was good but the service was NOT!
Table next to us left while we were still dining, and the way it was wiped guaranteed transmission of any COVID to the next group! It was wiped in like 2 seconds with a simple cloth, no sanitizing or anything!
The waiters were wearing masks but were definitely not practicing social distancing. Our stay at the hotel was good because we distanced ourselves well, but that dinner totally ruined it!

We had a reservation at 7.30pm and we had to wait until 8.15pm to get seated. Food was not worth the wait.

Sanderlings has done a great job of adapting to the current pandemic. We ate outdoors and were seated well away from other guests. The food was delicious and the service (by waiters wearing gloves and masks) was great. Thank you!

The restaurant is within the hotel lobby and was quite busy. Glad that we had the OpenTable reservation. We were shown to our table facing the ocean without any wait. Everything was set up to provide social distancing and we felt very comfortable. Food menu was varied and we quickly found items we wanted to try. I had the clam chowder and poke. Both were very good and provided a good sized lunch. The clam chowder was in a large bowl and had a rich, creamy flavor with a good amount of clams. The poke was just the tuna with some seaweed/avocado and what looked to be house made chips (no rice or anything). Had a good kick to it and was perfect sitting out in the sun.

New management and new chef has not been a positive. Classic delicious recipes have changed and food is more expensive for poor quality. All fish had a bad fishy flavor. Sanderlings was always a favorite of ours. No more. Such a disappointment.

Early birthday celebration with family. Wonderful views and ambience during this COVID imposed shutdown! Menu very limited without many of our usual favorites. There are only two salad choices and strangely Caesar is not one of them. Not the Sanderlings experience we’ve come to expect but happy they are doing their best in these unusual times.

Considering the Virus restrictions they are working with they are doing a fabulous job allowing their customers to enjoy the great setting at the Oceanside view. They have a limited menu which is not up to their normal amazing selection and quality, but still good stuff and a decent selection. Reservations are encouraged, and bring your sunglasses for the great sunsets and bring a jacket in case the fog cools off the outdoor patio.

My 60th birthday. Dinner was fine except we were seated then asked to move then no server. Seemed like they were not prepared for guest even though I had made a reservation. No treat offered to this birthday girl!

We had lunch there and we found the menu to be very limited for people who do not eat meat. We pick the fish and chips. It was good but it was overcooked.

That evening, I ended up with gastrointestinal distress.

Because I am going for physical therapy across the street, I will probably go there again but wish there were more choices.

Food is very mediocre for the price, you are paying for the view not the food. I would recommend going to have a drink on the patio, but don't stay for dinner it is not worth it.

Despite having a reservation, it was difficult to be seated. A server was late, so host said, "They can wait." However, once seating began, they took 2 groups before us - even though we had been waiting. Food took forever to get to table - many other groups sat after us were served and left before we received our food.

In this time of outdoor dining Sanderlings provides great value. The food is good, not fantastic, but the service WAS fantastic and you can’t beat the view. Tables were set far apart & I felt very comfortable. Dress for a cool breeze..... We’ll be back soon!

The setting at Sanderlings is just beautiful, overlooking the ocean. There was plenty of seating, spaced out and lots of shade. The food was great! Loved the Clam Chowder and the Fish and Chips. Service was very good. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here.

The view and setting is great! If you can get a table by the window the view is amazing. The Cesar salads were pedestrian but it was nice to have a choice in small and large salads. This is a nice touch and the waiter was attentive but not overly intrusive.
