We did the Thursday night all you can eat Italian buffet only because we had just arrived, hit happy hour and did not want to risk driving anywhere. What can I say? It was below average at best but could be so much better with a genuine desire to stimulate the guests into wanting to eat here. The buffet food... More

We were at the Planeta Bar outside the Sapphire, which is tended by a really great bartender, Nadine. We had planned to head off the grounds for dinner, but with one drink leading to another...and after speaking to the owner, Paolo, we ordered one Pasta ala Norma to share. The homemade marinara had plenty of fresh eggplant and the rigatoni... More

We went on Saturday for “All You Can Eat BBQ.” Chicken is baked; pork ribs are boiled, both are then served with a tiny cup of bottled BBQ sauce, and canned vegetables. After the first serving we each asked for another serving: the surly waiter, thoroughly outraged that we asked for more, brought one-half of one serving of boiled ribs,... More

The restaurant at the Sapphire Beach Club is a great little place for Italian home style dishes, fresh and well created. Sitting by the sea, the view is always great, the atmosphere is casual and friendly. I really liked the angel hair pasta with shrimp and broccoli but all the pasta was superb. Very good value for those of us... More

Very much over priced for frozen meats and canned sauces. Open when manager feels like it. Adjacent bar as bad or worse.

One waitress, so service is not the quickest. Dog has access to the kitchen, unsanitary. We had crinkle cut friends for lunch and the home style fries in the evening.
