An incomparably fun and intriguing place to dine, the Coliseum Pool & Grill overlooks the "scene" at the strikingly iconic Coliseum Pool, back-dropped by the Pacific Ocean. American favorites on the superbly prepared menu runs the gamut from pizzas, panini and sandwiches to seafood dishes, pastas, specialty salads and even smoothies.
