BeachHouse bar + grill
First Time For EverythingI have never given five stars to any dining establishment because there is always something that needs improving, however I cannot yet find anything to suggest for the BeachHouse. I've tried.
The food is fresh. I ordered the clams for an appetizer and the sauce is worth bragging about. The stuffed halibut was flavorful, fresh and rich. Green beans nice and tender, potatoes were just right.
My other half ordered the surf and turf. The steak was tender and grilled just as he ordered it and the shrimp were crisp on the outside and tender on the inside.
The kids love the s'mores at the table and I adore the chocolate cake. We had great service and were very well taken care of. The view of the lake was beautiful!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day successHaving done my usual procrastination, I was extremely fortunate to find an available reservation here for Mother's Day brunch for our family of 4. There didn't appear to be a bad seat in the house-all seem to have a view out the large panoramic windows looking straight out onto Lake Washington (with patio dining outside too). The view would be fantastic during a clear day or sunset. The service was friendly and quick and the food arrived at a good temperature. The waiter kept my coffee cup filled and was attentive. Don't let the name "Bar and Grill" fool you, this place is family and kid friendly-although I would suspect it gets a bit more grown-up in the evening; there is a full bar separated from the main dining area.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was disappointingWe ordered 3 small plates and didn't enjoy any of them. We were disappointed and probably won't go back. The view is nice and the service was very good.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite neighborhood spotThis restaurant has a great view and always pleasant wait staff. We have the luxury of being able to walk to it so it has become a regular place for us to dine out.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent waterfront diningGood, solid food, excellent service, reasonable price, amazing view.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA Tasty View to EnjoyI always return for the view. It is so wonderful.
We had a very nice pecan salad. We also had the Happy Hour chicken dish (forgot the name) and it was nice appearance, but a bit too bready and weak on flavor. However, nice surprise to find drinks and meals at Happy Hour prices always on Monday.
The waiters were very nice and think it was the bar tender who kindly brought my friend a nice wine sample, that we then bought. I had a great Happy Hour mixed drink.
Thanks for being in business.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a group of 10. BetweenWe were a group of 10. Between the music and talking of other diners and general background noise it was difficult to for all of us to hear conversations at opposing ends of table. Our server was great, the view was beautiful (and a little blinding due to the sunny day), and my dinner (seafood kabobs) was yummy. The restaurant allowed us to bring a birthday cake into the restaurant and eat it, which was nice.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time visit after beingFirst time visit after being highly recommended by some friends. The food was delicious, our server took great care of us and it has a nice atmosphere. Will be back for sure.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Brunch, Happy Family!What a hidden gem of a restaurant! We used to go here many years ago when it was the Foghorn and always enjoyed the ambience, view and food. It has transformed into a lively place and still offers a great view with many delicious menu options and drinks. We celebrated Easter with family and the service, food and drinks were spot on. I had the NY Steak Dip which came with options for sides and I chose the salad. So good! We are talking platters of food and very reasonably priced. My husband had the Eggs Benedict and couldn't decide on the dungeness crab, canadian bacon or florentine so they put ALL 3 on his plate. All of us enjoyed our food - perfectly prepared and presented. We will definitely be returning for their Happy Hour and dinner.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our Easter brunch.We enjoyed our Easter brunch.

The flavors of the food blended together so well and everything was presented in fine fashion. I would definitely go there again!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Favorite AtmosphereWell, I was going to call you, today. The person I was to meet had a last-minute emergency so we could not meet. I forgot to call and cancel reservation. I most humbly apologize.
And, I plan to reschedule as I love your restaurant atmosphere.
Marlene3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMfabulous place to eat!I was so impressed with the noise level. It was so quiet for a bar and grill, and the place was almost full! The service was great. The atmosphere was fantastic, it was causal but not too informal. I thought the menu selection was a little small, but there was still a lot of variety. The food is the best part about this place. I got the veggie burger. It looked and tastes great. I noticed from looking around that the other menu options looked just as good, and were probably also delicious. Price is reasonable ($10-20for average dinner plate) and portions are perfect, not too small but not too generous either. The view is of course gorgeous as well; you can see the water from most of the seating.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Choice for Sunday BrunchWe went for brunch after church last Sunday. I had seen their ad for "kid eat free" on their brunch, and with twin toddler grandchildren, we decided to give it a try. Including the two kids in high chairs, there were seven of us.
We had a nice table with a view of the water. It is certainly pretty, but there is very little activity, so it was not as entertaining for the children as we might have liked. But the adults enjoyed seeing a bald eagle soar past our window!
All the food was good and our waiter was friendly and helpful. The food took quite a while to arrive. But there was a great selection, and we will come back. Apparently this is quite the spot for families, as most tables had at least one child.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time! FoodWe had a great time! Food was wonderfule; service was slow considering there were only a handful of patrons and drinks took forever to arrive. The view is one of the best in Seattle; especially as it was clear and a great sunset was visible. We will be back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
