In a nice hotel, (Sea Ranch), it serves all meals. Bar closes at 9 which was a disappointment. But the food is great and plentiful. Patty melt floored me. Friendly service. Eat here whether you stay there or not.

We had several meals including breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon snacks at the Bistro. Enjoyed every one of them. They have daily Happy Hour food specials which were very reasonably priced and extremely tasty. Alex and our servers were all exceptional.

Second time here and still love it! Wait staff is very nice and love the sausage gravy and potatoes. Nothing better than dining with an ocean view!
