Diner Reviews
  • "First time diner, but won't be my last. It was a great find."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Mentioned that we are local and they gave us a 10% discount. Other than the service being slightly slow (which was expected from reading previous reviews). We had a wonderful experience at Beachside. The wait staff, especially Brittney, was friendly and accommodating. We had the sliders and truffle fries for appetizers- both were great. For dinner we both had the specials- Scallops and Proscuitto wrapped pork tenderloin and enjoyed our meals. Too stuffed to have dessert after all that food."

  • "The food was very tasty and the view was great. They have plenty of shade on a sunny day. We had a great lunch. It felt like we were on vacation with good food and the enjoying the out door dining."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "A solid Happy Hour menu, very much pooch friendly (outdoors any way) and good food make this a nice spot for outdoor dining and especially for Happy Hour. Service was friendly and accommodating but our orders were split incorrectly. Not a huge deal...we worked it our. Down at the far end of the marina but a very nice patio and not nearly as stuffy as other hotel patios."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Waiter forgot to put our order in for nearly an hour until I started making a fuss. In fairness, they cut the bill by 50% and offered free desserts which we had to decline at that point due to the time. I'd rather have to pay full price and get my food on time, though. I understand that these things occur."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Reserved ahead of time when arrived we were ignored and not seated till 20 minutes after arrival. NO One even bothered to apologize for making us wait and once seated waited about ten minutes before drink order was taken or even acknowledged. The food was amazing but the service was beyond poor"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Dinner on outside patio...nice. But the service was very slow, therefore my food came out on the cold side. Not good when eating fish. I can only guess the waitress was too busy to pick it up when chef finished cooking it. Waitress never came back to ask us if everything was fine or Ok, or are you enjoying your meal? Nothing."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "When I saw this place was in a hotel, I started to look else where. But my wife said "let go try it". Fantastic food. Fantastic service. Definitely go here and try the seafood (as we did)."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The restaurant was great, the service and the personality of the staff were outstanding. The restaurant was small and intimate yet you did not feel that you were on top of the people next to you. The happy hour menu was a plus for appetizers and drinks, even if you were having a full dinner, the discount was a welcomed treat. The only down side was that we were looking forward to the Chocolate Bread Pudding and one other desert that was advertised on the on-line menu, but they no longer offered. Otherwise, I am looking forward to going back with friends"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "They cancelled my reservation for 4 people, sitting on the outdoor patio, with pets, because they apparently forgot they had a wedding party on the patio that night, and they didn't realize it until 3 hours before my reservation!? They were offering tables inside instead, but last I heard, you couldn't take a dog inside a restaurant. There were 4 of us, and people had their dogs with them, so there was no leaving the dog at home instead, which the hostess suggested. In my opinion, the whole reason one would go to this restaurant is to sit outside on the patio."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The presentation of the food is nice but the flavor was lacking. The brunch enchiladas dish which was described as their signature dish was nothing special. The Ahi salad has potential but didn't pop with flavor the way it could have with a bit more lemon, seasoning, or dressing. Water glasses/ice tea were never refilled even after requested and waiter was a bit rude. I tipped 15% but should have given less upon review. It was ironic that I had a reservation for 10:45am on Saturday because there was no reservations available at 11am (the time I wanted) yet we had to wait 15 minutes for a table. I rushed to get there at 10:45 for nothing."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Everything was good at our local place. The reason for only 4 stars this time is that when we were being seated we noticed that our table was sitting in a large puddle of water and asked to be moved. It was early and there were at least 4 other tables available. The hostess who was seating us said that the other tables were set for 4 people and we were only 3 people. They had put us at a table for 2 and added a chair. A quick trip inside to the manager solved that problem- we got a table for 4. Robby (the best waiter) was over quickly to get our drink orders and from there on out it was just perfect."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Went to Beachside at the Jamaica Bay Inn many times. Always bring out of towners here. Its friendly and good food prepared well. I have always enjoyed eating there no matter what time of day. I appreciate the fact that it is close and you can be overlooking the water. We went with a birthday group of ladies and every one totally enjoyed there meal. Just went there with my son from another area and he loved it. Its a return to place."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Robbie, our waiter, was awesome, he is one of the best and funniest, all people in his profession could learn from this guy. Food great, it was a Sunday morning, made a reservation through Open Table (great!) and it was quiet and so enjoyable, definitely recommend this place. We were here before the freakish lighting strike at Venice Beach. Would consider staying at the hotel too in the future."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "I was there with my girlfriend on a saturday night. The view was fantastic and the service great. We had a couple of drinks plus an appetizer and an entrée... food was great. Really a nice place to visit again."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Enjoyed brunch with Family, whose origins are from Jamaica, which is why I selected. Food was large portions and moderately priced. We enjoyed our time in the Restaurant and will recommend to others. Views of the Marina and Beach are excellent. Had a high chair for the 9 month old also. Parking was wonderful also."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "As a local there are many beautiful places in the area... This one is by far the best view and overall experience! Took friends to dine while they were visiting and for my first time at Beachside. I was so impressed have been back numerous times since! The food is excellent, no choice is better than another off of the menu! This hidden gem is really a must dine spot! one of the evenings it was a bit windy but with an easy seating move by the fire pit it was perfect! The patio is always preferred dining for my husband and I. Can not wait to go back!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Dinner with coworkers was great. Perfect outdoor seating, excellent service, food was fantastic. Would definitely go again."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "loved the scene and the food! Great vacation spot!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I just love this place. The scenery was nice and very refreshing. I will be returning."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "We requested outside seating. There were multiple tables available, but we were told they had parties w/ reservations coming. They were not crowded inside or out and by the time we left there were still several open tables on the outside patio. Water glasses were residually dirty. Had to request ice - continually. They would not sub a vegetable for the fries that came w/ the steak frites. No salt and pepper on the tables. One set of silverware provided (which we used for our salads) was not replaced when they brought out the entrees, so we had to grab some from another table. Filet ordered medium came out well-done, but took a while so my daughter ate it anyway b/c she didn't want to wait for another one. Plenty other options in area."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "What a beautiful relaxing lunch. We sat right near the beach on a wonderful summer afternoon. Food was excellent, service was okay. We will be back soon."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Beachside Restaurant and Bar is beautiful! It's located right at the marina and has gorgeous views. If you dine here, definitely be sure to sit outside. One down side is the food... The food was okay in my opinion (I ordered the Shiitake Mushroom/Turkey burger which was a bit dry), but the truffle fries were absolutely amazing! Heard they have happy hour so perhaps it'd be worth it to go then!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "My gal pals and I eat breakfast out every Saturday morning. We live in Marina del Rey and like to eat local. Last week we decided to try the Beachside at Jamaica Bay Inn. I made a reservation asking for outside in the shade. We were seated within a few minutes of arriving outside in the shade. We were greeted by our server Robbie, who we all fell in love with. Upbeat, friendly and really good service. The food was good and the view of Mother's Beach was just great. What a way to spend a summer morning. Robbie asked if we were "locals" and we told him we live in MDR. He then told us that this would get us the locals 10% discount."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Like any other hotel restaurant food options are very limited and standard"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "One of my favorites in the Marina. My only problem: the service is very slow and always at least one mistake. Yesterday, there were two: I ordered a turkey burger, no bun, with salad, dressing on the side. It came with a bun and salad with dressing."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "We live around the corner and have frequented Beachside for brunch several times. We tolerated the poor service, several times waiting for up to 20 minutes for our first drink, and average food. The selling points: $15 bottomless mimosas or bloodys and a GREAT view of the beach and marina. On our last visit, we had three mimosas each (after talking to our waiter about being local repeat customers). We were upset to find out that the restaurant had recently discontinued its 'bottomless' drinks....finding the $9 charge for each on our bill. The complaint? That our waiter knew we were regulars, but didn't bother to mention the change. Overall, a very average place with a great view. Unfortunately, not enough to keep us coming back."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "I came here when they first opened. The food was good, but the service was a bit slow. Two years later and the service still leaves a lot to be desired. It took almost 10 minutes for someone to come up and take our drink order (and that was only after we asked a busboy to get our server). We also asked our server if a heater could be moved closer to our table. She never came back to give us an update. When we asked a busboy, he mentioned that they were out of propane. At the end of dinner, our server became much more attentive. At the end of the meal right before we pay/tip is not the time to be the most attentive. The food is good and the location is great! I just wish the service were better."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "I came here for lunch and had a wonderful experience. There is ample free parking in the parking lot outside. The host and other staff members are extremely friendly and engaging. The wait service is right on the mark and very attentive and professional. The views are spectacular, and the outdoor dining is absolutely beautiful and relaxing. The food was wonderful and came in large portions, and for a reasonable cost. I cannot wait to go back!"
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "This was a good restaurant to host a small group celebrating graduation. The location is great...right on the marina! The bar is a bit loud but it didn't impede our good time. I would recommend this restaurant for group events."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Four of us went for dinner and all ordered something different. The food was delicious! Presentation was great! Service was fast! We were surprised, because usually hotel restaurants are hit-and-miss - this was a HIT and we'll be back again."

  • "great food. We all had the crab cakes. they were outstanding. All crabmeat, no filler. Wonderful desserts "

    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "I had a wonderful time here with friends on a Sunday afternoon. We sat on the patio, which is highly recommended. Our first server was not very good. He was rude and impatient. We asked for a different server, and it made the difference. Our new server Mike was great! The ambiance was amazing, and the food was excellent. I was with a party of four, and we really did enjoy ourselves. Those bottomless mimosas certainly helped! Did I mention free valet? "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "I made a reservation and asked for the outside if possible. The entire outside was closed for a wedding. Open table should tell you that as I would have gone elsewhere to be outside. Also once you make the reservation, theres no way to change it on line. Open Table gets 1 star from me."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Unfortunately, there was a wedding so we couldn't eat outdoors. But eatomg ondoors worked out just fine."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "we love this place. but the outside fills up fast on a friday and sitting inside is noisy and just not the same as being outside with the water view and the breezes. "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "We came to Beachside Restaurant for a business dinner and it was perfect. The service was great, the food was very good and the scenery was beautiful. Very reasonably priced too! Highly recommend!"
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "The food was excellent, especially the seafood. Our table of 4 ordered 2 scallops entrees, a Mahi dish was delivered instead of one of the scallops. He had to wait 10 minutes before getting his scalops. No drinks/appetizers were offered while he sat watching the rest of us enjoy our meal. Therected were bread plates on the table, but no bread was offered. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Booking with OpenTable quick and easy. Less than a minute wait after arrival at restaurant for staff to acknowledge reservation and provide seating. Reservation was at 6:00 pm for dinner and choice of inside or outside table available. Server friendly, attentive and informative throughout meal. Food was only average; so I would rate it as overpriced. Party of three; had filet mignon, New Zealand salmon, and fish and chips as entrees. Appetizers of calamari (a little chewy) and fried asparagus (overcooked). Two in party were native Chinese and stated the hot green tea was not very good. I had lemonade to drink and it was too watery. All in all I would say it is a very average restaurant that I would not eat at again. "
