    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!

    We always go for the sunset dinners that are served early. You cannot beat the price, service and the food quality. Everything we have had has been delicious right down to the bread. The firecracker shrimp appetizer is a favorite. We visit as often as we can.

    We were meeting out of country friends and had a problem connecting with them. The restaurant passed on our message that we were running late - went the extra mile for us. Great view, food was fair, seemed expensive for the quality. The pasta dish with Portobello mushrooms was over salted. Extreme noise level, had a hard time hearing the person next to me. Great wine selection! The service was very good, despite the big crowd.

    The beach house has been there for a long time and used to be a fancy traditional restaurant for special occasions. We gave it another try this last weekend for our anniversary, but wished we didn't. I ordered the filet mignon which first came overcooked (I ordered it medium rare) the second time it was correct but I like my steak in one piece and they pre-sliced it. It was also obvious they microwave it. It was almost as if there is no chef there and just a few cooks re-heating food. Too bad, because the location is great.

    This restaurant has an "early bird" special for dinner & drinks from 4-6pm. You must be seated by 5:30 & order dinner by 6pm to get this special. Luckily the wait staff is flexible with this arrangement. We had reservations for 5:45 & were seated by 5:40 (we arrived at 5:30), at first we were given menus with full price entrees, we acted surprised & mentioned the 6pm "ruling". Our waitress changed our menus to the early bird ones. This is something that should be highlighted on our your web page for the restaurant.

    I waited a very long time to get to your place...and was not disappointed! It is a nice restaurant with a great view of the water. Right next to a park and the Ocean that you could take a nice stroll after a very nice dinner! I would recommend this place to family and friends. I wish I would of remembered our two servers names but I can not. They were both friendly and helpful and delieverd great services. I am glad my boss recommended this place for dinner. I will return. My Basil Pasta was yummy and I added shrimp....! My friend had the steak very good also. We wanted dessert but were to full...next time!

    Had a lovely meal, dining out on the deck absolutely wonderful! Excellent service and can't beat the view! My friends, visiting from Napa, were impressed with the wine list and enjoyed their meatloaf early bird dinner immensely. They had heard good things about the Beach House and were thrilled when I told them I had made reservations. Appreciated the ease of online reservations...thank you! As I live, literally, just around the corner...I will definitely continue to dine with you, as will my friends from Napa, I'm sure, the next time they are visiting the Peninsula.

    The Beach House is my favorite in all of the Pacific Grove area......love the view, the food, and the service! Early dinner is sooooooo reasonably priced. Although not on the early bird menu, the truffled gnocchi is absolutely one of the most delicious foods I have ever eaten....it is "melt in your mouth" good.

    We ate at the beach house on lovers point recently. We came here because we were staying at a house near by. Overall we had a good experience. We ordered the roasted corn chowder, (we were not a fan, but our wonderful server had it taken off the bill) the imported truffle gnocchi. That was really rich and creamy. The beet salad was simple but good. Last we had the chicken. It was a very large portion. The chicken was cooked perfectly, crisp skin and the mushrooms, pearl onions, and potatoes we also good. Overall the service was great. The food was OK and the view was perfect.

    The food at the Beach House was just okay. For $7.00 per salad, I could've made a much tastier dressing plus it was scant in size. The fish filet I had was described on the menu as grilled onions, peppers, and potatoes. The onions and peppers might have been grilled, but the potatoes were fried like breakfast potatoes. It was just okay. Waitress and outdoor dining were fine, pleasant.

    We had an AWESOME dining experience at The Beach House at Lover's Point. Beautiful view of the Monterey Bay from our window table...most of the tables are situated next to a window or within view of the panoramic views of the bay. The food and wine list were outstanding...we both had the Salmon and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was my wife's birthday and they brought her dessert with a candle with minimal fanfare....it was a nice touch. By the way, be sure to try any of their chocolate desserts that are available...we enjoyed two different ones and they were both outstanding (we tried each other's). We made our reservations on line and our table was ready well before we arrived....we cannot wait to go there again!

    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.

    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.
