    Our first trip to Monterey. First night we dined in the more tourist area of Cannery Row. So glad we drove around and spotted Beach House. We will go back before leaving the area!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    It is perfectly located across the street to the Lovers Point Inn we stayed at. The fresh new surroundings, amazing view and exquisite food overwhelmed the slightly average waiter service we received, although the host guy was excellent in welcoming and saying goodnight as we left. Little choice for kids, but the house burger was good enough. My wife chose the filet mignon, I had the bacon wrapped meatloaf and we were both very impressed with the quality taste & presentation of the dishes. We weren't rushed and we weren't in a hurry so the slightly slower pace of the evening was ideal. As for the open table reservation, I asked for an indoor window view if available and that's exactly what was waiting for us. We look forward to returning.

    For such a unique setting, the menu was surprisingly limited, and the food itself was poor-fair. What a shame. Definitely won't be returning, plenty of other places in the Monterey-Pacific Grove-Carmel area that are more worthy of a visit.

    We went there for the sunset special; I ordered the King Salmon with soup, and my wife ordered the Sand Dabs with a Caesar salad. Shortly after ordering, a waiter arrived with two salads- a caesar and a house. We informed him of the error, and our original waitress arrived soon after with the correct items and an apology. No harm, no foul- such things happen, and it was busy. However... when another waiter arrived with the main course, Sand Dabs... and meatloaf. Pretty sad, really- but in all fairness, our original waitress had things straight soon afterwards. Food quality was good, if not stellar- the house wine was a decent chardonnay, and I ordered an amber ale with my salmon, which was also good. They need at least one more waitperson.

    The Beach House Restaurant has great views and a versatile menu. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We started with the Butter Lettuce Salad which was a little more dressed for my liking but did have excellent flavors. We both ordered the Spaghetti with Clam Sauce which came out with delicious clams with the meat inside the shell about the size of a nickel. There were probably about a dozen clams in each of our bowls of pasta. The spaghetti was al dente and the sauce was spicy. I love the spice, but if you're not a spice lover, I would suggest asking them to not put so much chili pepper in. I highly recommend this place, you will not be disappointed!

    We came to celebrate my wife's birthday and she loved it. This is a charming spot right on the ocean. The weather was a bit hazy so the view wasn't as wonderful had it been clear but nonetheless it was breathtaking. The food was pricy and menu options were rather limited, but you come here for great service and an amazing experience. The service is top notch and our family was pleased overall. We would recommend this place to anyone wanting a very special experience.

    After a week of enjoying vacation in our little house near Lovers Point, to have a perfect dinner like the one we had at the Beach House seemed too much to ask. But there it was... an wonderfully attentive server, TERRIFIC food at a fair price, a view to die for. I had the Sand Dabs and a Caesar during the early hours of the evening, when there is a bit of a special. I heartily recommend the Beach House!

    Had a wonderful dining experience last Thursday. Had family in town and thought they would enjoy the scenic view. Food was excellent. One person in my party ordered the spaghetti and clams, they were WAY to spicy. It had tons of red pepper flakes. The waitress happily took it back and brought her a new dish that was just excellent. It took a little longer than anticipated but it was car week and busy. In the end we were not charged for it so it made up for it.Will return again and again with family to enjoy the great food and scenery.

    We took a friend here for her retirement party. Asked on-line for a window seat and got one! The service was outstanding, our waiter was attentive and friendly, even with a full house. He was nice enough to put a candle on our "shared" dessert for our retiree. We did the Sunset Supper, which cannot be beat for the price.

    Average about 2 times per week; both me and the wife work so it is not hard to dump dinner and go out. We tend to eat early and so we often take advantage of the $9.99 Sunset Special. A great deal all around! Go often, go early!

    We had a very disappointing visit to the Beach House with our 3 kids. Waiter was obviously put off with having to take care of our table. He was down right rude. Oysters were good and kids loved their $13 pasta. I had to return my steak. Asked for med rare and got well done. My guess is that it sat under a heat lamp and continued cooking. Unfortunately a manager never came by to check on the new steak or apologize. Would not go back.

The service was friendly and efficient, the food was great, the views of Monterey Bay were superb - what's not to like? We only wish they were open for lunch!

    Dined on 8/3/2014
    We have eaten at the Beach House sunset menu more than 6 times and the food is always excellent. Our last visit with out of town quests on Sunday was no exception. The food was spot on and excellent as always, but (if they have an expediter) I found bit of spinach on my wife's plate of sand dabs that was not wiped off and the sand dabs were only warm not hot and the braised red cabbage and apple was cold minus any apples for my two out of town quests on their flame-broiled pork tenderloin. Despite the flaws on Sunday we still find the Beach House the best kept secret for sunset dinner. We will return again.

    My husband and I had a wonderful delicious anniversary dinner here with an excellent table for two facing the ocean. The food was great, the waitstaff was wonderful, and the atmosphere was delightful. We want to go back soon! We liked how the restaurant was fancy but the dress code was casual. We enjoyed walking along the ocean before we sat for our dinner.

    Our meal started out a bit disappointing, as we had asked for a table with a view and saw one given to a party ahead of us who did not have a reservation and then a window table with a decidedly limited view was offered to us. Still the food as good. My husband thought the meatloaf was one of the best he has ever had: moist and succulent. My shortrib ravioli with braised carrots was not as successful. There were some good flavors completely overpowered by excessive salt. The firecracker shrimp appetizer was excellent, with just the right amount of heat. We will return to this restaurant again.

    When we are in Monterey, we always make it a point of dining early at the Beach House Restaurant at Lovers Point. The Blue Plate specials/Early Bird Meals are continually excellent, as is the restaurant services. We are never disappointed in the food or prices.

    For our first visit we opted for their "Sunset Supper" an early-birds type, limited menu. (just in case it was disappointing, we wouldn't be out a great deal!) Great price and beautiful views. Their regular menu is also very reasonable. We were very pleased and will surely return.

    This restaurant is at Lover's Point. Their Sunset Suppers are the best! They offer 7 different full-sized dinners at $9.90 from 4:00 to 6:00 PM. After that the dinners are full price. The service was perfect and the food was excellent. The Firecracker Shrimp appetizer is dynamite!!!! We had a nice table overlooking the ocean and the little beach below the restaurant. Definitely worth another visit! Make reservations though, they seem to fill up fast.
