Definitely a splurge... The Deep Freeze drinks, the On The Rocks selection and the Twisted Coconuts:) The Ladies and Gentlemen employed here will come around and hand out the menu.The mixed drinks all have exotic names and I guarantee you will be tempted. What else is there to do while lounging around the pool? Enjoy it, you are at the... More

Just paid $118 for lunch with the family and it was good, but nothing special. No organic options on the menu. Also sat poolside afterwards and had two margaritas on the rocks for my wife and I, paid another $38 for those and they were terrible. Could get this meal and these drinks for about $50 anywhere else.

The Ritz-Carlton's Poolside Cafe was perfectly convenient for a delicious lunch-time bite. Every member of my group - kids and adults - had no problem finding something to munch on.

Enjoyed our quick lunch outside at the poolside cafe. It was very windy the day we were dining and although things were flying all around, service was impeccable. It would be great if the cafe has outdoor music while you dined. Overall superb experience and would return again.

Great view of water and very casual place to dine. Menue isn't extensive, but then it's resort casual.

The Poolside Cafe is very conveniently placed right in the middle of the pool complex that is part of the Vanderbilt Beach Ritz. Drinks are very good and the guacamole is outstanding. Very expensive but very good.

The poolside cafe is much nicer than your typical poolside cafe. It was perfect for a lunch during our day at the pool, and there were also business lunches going on at the same time. The food was a little higher scale than your typical poolside restaurant, and we loved our caprese salads and southern chicken sandwich!
