    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    Tried the beach house because it was new to us. Had the sand dabs,they were slightly heavily breaded and slightly oily. There are better sand dabs locally. the poached pear dessert was less than stellar. The promised carmel gelato accompaniment was a very ordinary vanilla instead. Coffee was in line with the rest of the meal - very average, lacking the flavor and verve of the area's best - Acme. Service was well meaning and friendly, but very unpolished and not especially knowledgeable. Reception at the front of the house was friendly, competent, and went out of the way to accommodate.

    After seeing their website I was really looking forward to the "husband-wife chef" cooking. As instructed we sat outside for better noise level - the view is outstanding. We had reservations for the early supper menu if we wanted. The waitress Debra was very nice and sold us on the "signature" fire-cracker shrimp appetizer. It was spicy and good - but, not great. Shrimp could have tasted better and cooked a little more. I played it safe with the pasta with shrimp which was good, but would have been better without the shrimp. My husband ordered the filet which was just O.K. The fresh warm bread was the best part. They need more FRESH fish and better menu choices than meatloaf. I expect more than ambiance from a restaurant in Pacific Grove.

    We were celebrating our 9th Anniversary so wanted a "special & romantic" place. We went early to take advantage of their sunset special and was glad I made reservations as in less than an hour the place was almost full. We were given one of the best view tables which I had requested. Our server's perfume was overwhelming! The bread was probably the best part of the meal. I had pesto pasta and added grilled prawns - the shrimp were very small and were steamed, not grilled and the basil cream sauce was excessively cheesy. My husband had a hamburger which was overcooked (he had requested medium, not well) and tasteless. Had to ask for ice, butter, water, bread...no acknowledgment of this special occasion. Overpriced and not impressed.

    Ordered a Riesling wine but served a Chardonnay. Firecracker shrimp were awesome. Food was good! Nice view facing The east over Monterrey Bay (no sunset views). Noise level was tough to take.

    The Beach House at Lover's Point on Monterey Bay is an outstanding restaurant in what used to be the Old Bath House. The food is delicious and the presentation is beautiful. This is especially a great place for early dining with several entrees for $10 each at 5:30 PM daily but reservations are essential.

    They did a nice job in saving a city landmark. Perhaps table cloths and other sound deadening additions might help. The early bird special is a great value.

    We were a party of six for an early dinner and enjoyed our experience, but did think the noise level was annoying. The food was excellent and comfortably priced. The waitress was most excellent--very pleasant and helpful. Wish I could remember her name, but she was a gem. The views of the bay were very nice.

    It would be appreciated if the wait-person asked before diluting my remaining Arnold Palmer by refilling it with straight iced tea. In my case, the answer would always be "No, Thank You." Others might well say "Yes, Thank You."

    This is a lovely oceanside restaurant with outstanding views from most tables with protected outside dining also available. The menu is versatile and the food delicious. The tomato basil soup was outstanding, and our entrees were also excellent, followed by luscous lemon tart and pear cobbler desserts. Given the unbelievable view, this restaurant is a very affordable option for a memorable dinner. You won't be disappointed.

    I saw this restaurant on a website and read all these amazing reviews but it was nothing close too. Our server wasn't very interactive with us I would say- he checked on us one time besides taking our order and giving us our check. The food wasn't that great either. The view was really amazing from the whole restaurant but besides that I probably wouldn't go back again.

    I went here over ten years ago when it was the Bath House, and I guess I was expecting that same level of sophistication. The server was very nice, but didn't have the level of professionalism I was expecting. Another server nearly ran into to me and seemed more irritated than apologetic. The food was the best part, but it's a very safe and savory menu that isn't too hard to get wrong in my opinion.

    We take one vacation a year with our close group of friends so there were 10 at the table that night. The food was wonderful, with the exception that the two who ordered the escargot were disappointed. There is a full bar, one of the FEW in Pacific Grove. But the best thing was the waiter, Jaciel. He was on top of everything and PLAYFUL, which is very important to our group.

    We were in Monterey on vacation and to celebrate my husband's birthday. The restaurant was an excellent choice. The view from our table was overlooking the water, which was exactly what we requested. Our waiter was excellent and very attentive. The food was excellent. We ordered from the Sunset Special menu and that was great. The Beach House was a perfect choice for this celebration. A very popular restaurant and reservations are recommended. We went early (4:45 pm) before the evening crowd started arriving.

    The Early Bird menu is so reasonable, you can't afford not to sit out on the deck and watch the beautiful Lovers Point view of the Bay and little Pacific Grove Victorian houses. Even on cool evenings, the surrounding glass and heaters keep the deck cozy. (And you can enjoy the music and ocean sounds as it is much quieter than inside this busy restaurant.) My German heritage appreciated the roast pork, smashed Yukon gold potatoes and red cabbage. Get the tomato-roasted pepper soup if it is available. A yummy dinner and view for the price of a mediocre lunch elsewhere.

    We went for the early dinner setting. The menu at this setting offered a wide variety for any appetite. Warm bread and butter was offered at the beginning of the meal. The meals served were very hot and delicious. Everyone at the table had something different & each had high praise for the wonderful dishes. It was a perfect size meal for the price. The service was excellent and very attentive. The atmosphere was so open, clean and inviting. We had beer & wine - which also was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant - especially the early dinner menu. Keep up the great work!
