    Dined on 7/21/2014
    We were seated by the bar. The restaurant was not crowded. Loud, noisy, crowd. At least they left quickly. First, ordered side salads. Not given a salad fork. When we were finished, we were told to keep our forks. Really? We can't get another one for our meal? Next, we both ordered the NY steak. It was excellent. A bit pricey for this restaurant. Downside: not given steak knives. Had to ask for them, we were given one steak knife and one off the wall mismatched smooth blade knife (?). Asked for another steak knife. It took our waitress a while to come back. Don't know where she had to go to find it. At least it matched the other one. Again, pricey for a "cafe". $27 for steak dinner and side salad. Should have went to a steakhouse!

    We dined at the Beach Cafe before seeing a show. It was a very relaxing atmosphere, with a nice selection of entrees. We made reservations for 5 PM, which worked well. The restaurant began filling up between 5:30 and 6:30PM. Our server was pleasant and able to make recommendations about entree selections. I would dine here on a return trip.

    I am a local and walk to/patronize this Restaurant frequently. While the food is good and reasonably priced the service is always extremely slow especially on weekends if you order off the menu. If you choose the Buffet be sure you know what's on it first. If you choose to order Breakfast from the Menu, be sure you have plenty of time.

    Sat at the table for 15 minutes before anyone even acknowledged I was there. The bus boy took my order then a server took over. The server was incredibly rude and acted like serving me was an imposition. The service was so bad I didn't even want to there for the free breakfast that came with my room the next morning. I'll never go back to this restaurant.

    The description says contemporary American cuisine. It's basically sandwiches, wraps, hamburgers and salads. One chair at our table was covered in crumbs; another had clearly had something recently spilled on it was still wet. The food was fine and you got what you paid for. I had simply gone in with the impression it would be a bit nicer.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP

    The menu on OpenTable was nothing like the one at the restaurant. We were expecting a much higher class of restaurant. This was more like a "poolside" restaurant serving burgers. The Cuban burger we had was good but nothing special. My husband sent back the very dry Mongolian beef dish he ordered and just ate half my burger. (they are very large) The appetizers we had, crab cakes and egg rolls were like what you could have bought in the frozen section of your local store. Really very disappointed. We won't go back.

    When we first arrived we were not happy with the level of noise in the dining room, but when we asked for an outdoor table, we were very pleased with the background of the waterfall that drowned out all the noise except our own conversation. I had mahi mahi, my husband ordered fish and chips, the other people in our party had the meatloaf and mine was good, they raved about their choices. We would have spent more money on bar beverages if the server had shown up more often at our table. We will return and try it out for lunch sometime soon, and will certainly go back for casual dinners.

    The main body of the cafe inside is lacks much personality, but on a nice day, sitting outside feels great! The food was good...hard to ruin a sandwich and salad, but like most sit down restaurants in Vegas these days, a bit overpriced for what you got.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/17/2012
    Attended for the breakfast buffet, which was tasty and reasonably priced. Nice beachy atmosphere. Only complaint was the hostess, who tried to seat us at a long, pub height table where we would have had to sit on stools. When I asked for a regular height table she seemed rather put out. We were then seated at the rear of the restaurant, where some noisy construction was going on outside. This was disspointing, especially since I had made a reservation. I would not have bothered if I'd known.

    Showed up for the 10am-2pm brunch buffet and $10 unlimited margaritas. Was informed by the hostess that due to a Slots Tournament that day they weren't providing the brunch buffet but that I had the choice to do the breakfast one still so we did that since we were starving. Cost us $18.99/person and the food was sub par. My husband asked for a margarita which never ever arrived. Had to ask the hostess for our bill since clearly we weren't getting any service from any of the waitresses.

    We were at the Tropicana for a conference and The Beach Cafe was quite crowded for lunch. The wait was long - even with a reservation - and although our server was friendly and efficent, it took a while to get our food. Our food (Cesear Wrap and French Dip) was just OK. Nothing outstanding. Being outside was nice, but the chairs were not comfortable at all. We just drank water and our bill - with tip - was over $30. Not that I mind spending that much for food if it's GREAT, but this food was just OK.

    Very good about having reservations. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Food was so-so. My 12 year old cousin had chicken tenders that were ok. I had the grilled chicken sandwich, and didn't realize it had a chipotle mayo on it. It came on texas toast that was soaking wet from the mayo on both sides, and it didn't have lettuce/tomato/onion like the waiter said it would. They were great about quickly fixing the problem, but the chicken was dry and rubbery. Nice staff, and nice view of the outside grounds, but I wouldn't go back for the food.

While there were more guests seated outside on the patio, only three tables was occupied in the inside dining area. There was only a couple with no reservations ahead of us and my daughter and I, waiting to be seated. Because we had reservations, we were seated immediately. The waiter did not take long to welcome us, gave us the menus, and took our drink order. Meanwhile, less than five minutes later, the couple that was in line ahead of us were seated, and then three more parties within the next 5 minutes thereafter.
