    I was surprised that there was a $25 parking fee to park at the hotel. Most of the time there is a discount to eat at a hotel restaurant, and that isn’t mentioned anywhere in the reservation. Then I was charged $50 as a FIREPIT charge. There were not any tables without a FIREPIT, and they never mentioned the FIREPIT charge during the reservation process. Luckily my waiter made it right. Also, it was marketed as a Holiday event, and the music they had playing wasn’t even holiday music. It makes no sense to have live music with Christmas trees and twinkle lights and have the artist not sing Holiday music. Overall, it has great potential, but my experience definitely wasn’t what I would want my patrons to experience if I was in charge.

    We booked and paid for a 2 hours VIP chalet package which include 1 hr of skating. However, when we arrived we were told the ice skating closed at 8pm, we only got to skate for 30mins vs 1hr as promised when purchase of the package. Also, we paid for 2 hrs used of the cabana. We supposed to have the place until 9.30pm, but everything including music etc… were closing at 9pm. Also, as we were trying to start to toast marshmallows, you ran out of fire starter. The staffs were trying their best to start the fire pit which we appreciate. But it wasted our time for the staffs to start the fire pit when we already have less time to spend in the cabana. Very disappointing with the hours. You should not have offered 7.30pm reservation when everything is closed by 9pm.

    Went for a birthday dinner thinking that the description of “social club” would mean adult friendly. There were a couple connect four games, large chess set and no live music. Heaters didn’t work, our fire pit was not lit, the mark up of the wine was 400 percent, no exaggeration. Food was very limited, we had one hot dog, two pizzas and a bowl of soup, with the wine and a few beers the bill came out to 750. Provided we had good wine that wouldn’t be an issue, we had a twist off bottle or argyle Pinot that retails for under $20, Limited options, a couple reds and a couple whites on the menu. The bathrooms are in the lobby so you have to walk pretty far to get there and there is no lighting along the way. I’ve been to the lawn area before when it was set up there with a full menu, great wine, great service and live music, that was wonderful and what I expected. I feel ripped off, we all did as did the cabana next to us. It would be difficult to get us to go back even with one of our parties had been married there. Would not recommend, it was really disappointing

    Extremely loud club music playing at 5:15. It was empty and didn’t fit the space. Also, don’t wear heels here! There are a few different types of ground cover (strange) and not conducive to high heels

    The dinning experience was disappointing. The service was slow and the food choices were few. The cocktails were served in plastic cups instead of glass, definitely not matching the high price tag. The whole experience is serenely overpriced.

    We were there to celebrate a special occasion and were sadly disappointed. The venue ran out of most of the menu - the chairs were all wet and no blankets were offered. The kids were bummed not to have the hot chocolate bar that was being offered on the menu but was no longer available. For the price of a fire pit, we were at least hoping for a nice meal but the food wasn’t cooked (the yams were ice cold and rock hard) and most of the food was sub par. Overall it wasn’t the winter wonderland we wished for.

    Beautiful venue and festive spirit. Bar missing routine items and unable to serve “typical” drinks. $300 minimum worrisome, but blew through it with $22 drinks/$26 four piece cheese pizza. Servers were attentive, but served wrong food and drinks more than once. Will definitely return, but with a deeper wallet.

    The burger is excellent. The s’mores were fun. It took 50 minutes for us to get our drinks. They were short staffed so we weren’t able to put our order in until we asked for service and it was clear that the service staff was trying their best to serve everybody. We asked for hot water and it didn’t come until 30 minutes later. At this price point, and it being at the grand Delmar, I just expected more. I think I would do this again if I just walked in and sat at the bar so I could get my drinks immediately, not worth it to get a canopy at $150 and have to wait 50 minutes for hot water even after asking for it repeatedly.

    Absolutely stunning outdoor venue, with live music, beautiful lights once sun set, and s'mores to roast in our own personal fire pit! The cabanas are a nice, relaxing way to have a semi-large group of people gather and chat in a cozy private space-- they even brought out blankets for us and turned on the heat lamps once the temperature got a little chilly. Great service and decent food options, just wish the cocktails weren't so expensive.

    Perfect get together spot for friends and family. Love that it is kid friendly and there is ton of room to run around. Loved the outdoor games and live Music! Ambience is great. Food and cocktails are wayyy overpriced but it’s worth it to have a free cabana, fire pit, and live entertainment. The pizza is absolutely phenomenal. We will definitely be coming back again and again!

    Overpriced food and drinks. Ordered a $24 cheeseburger that comes with a bag of chips. For such a nice hotel and their prices, you would think you could get your condiments added to the burger instead of being given ketchup and mustard packets. Even a soda was $5 and you didn't get refills. They kick you out after 2 hours unless you want to spend another $250. If they want you to spend that much they should have better menu options and better food! The drinks were good but pricey. Some of the staff was very nice but some were also snobby. Didn't get a good vibe from this place which is too bad because I was very excited about it. For such a "grand" hotel, this part of it was not great. Don't waste your money or time!

    This is a great concept, but needs a little more fine tuning. Our waiter seemed pretty pre occupied with other groups and forgot or messed up our order quit a bit. My 10 year old was with us and enjoyed running around on the grass with the other kids. What was weird and almost appalling was that they sprayed the grass with some type of dye to make it look more green. All of the kids running around barefoot or playing on the grass had hands and feet dyed a blue/green color. Doesn't seem very healthy or sanitary to me?

    The new Del Mar Social Club is nothing like the former Fireside Grill. It was beyond disappointing. $12 for frozen corn? Out of all mixed drinks? Chips in a bag like at Subway? Severs literally breaking tree branches off to use for smores and pouring extra drinks into the ground right next to us? Come on. You can do better. We were so disappointed.

    Ordered a drink and a pizza before deciding to leave. We were seated at a fire pit closest to the lawn games which we were excited to play. While waiting for our food and drinks to arrive we decided to go play ladderball but all the balls were tangled and we spent a few minutes untangling them. Played for a bit and then went back to our table/pit when food came. As soon as we walked away a group of maybe 6 kids (ages 2-8?) started “playing” with the ladderball by climbing on the frame and throwing the balls up and trying to get them tangled on the string lights. Another set of kids were throwing beanbags at each other. There was a live music which we couldn’t enjoy because of the screaming kids. Moving to another firepit was not an option as they were all taken. We left as soon as we could. We spoke with the social club employees though their response was that there was nothing they could do. Avoid this place if you’re looking for a a night away from kids. With a menu that caters to adults (drinks and apps), I expect to be surrounded by adults and not have to feel like I’m at a McDonalds play place. I have kids and would never allow them or behave in that manner. I also wanted a night away from my kids which is why I made sure to get a sitter. I won’t be going back. Pizza was delicious though. Has potential to be a great place but not if they continue to allow parents to leave their kids to run around like wild animals

    One of those situations in which you really want it to be great, and it comes close, but it misses the mark. Limited food options really is the issue. More variety and more entrees are needed.
