    Food was excellent, service was excellent but that restaurant really needs to be updated. It’s in a great location but is very run down.

    It was great, the only disappointment is that they no longe offer brunch. Given that we only choose the place because we would have a brunch menu, this was a bit frustrating. Other than that it was a good experience

    The new menu was good, I can tell they're paying attention to details. Great view!! The servers were wonderful and very "on it!" Was a bit shocked that the bartender didn't know for sure how to make and Aperol Spritz?? Even if someone is new that drink especially in the Spring and Summer months is such a staple that any bartender in a quality establishment should know how to do it. Overall is was very good but the other thing is that they have terrible desserts - 2 odd kinda ice cream things?? Since it's on the water, very lovely view they should have some lovely Gelato's and Cream Brûlée, Lemon Meringue Tart, etc. something chocolate. Doesn't seem too hard!

    First off the service was outstanding! Best service in a long time! Kudos to the server! She was awesome! However the food was awful and overpriced. I have long been a fan of this restaurant and location, however the prices on the menu - oh have they gone up! And for what! The calamari had far too much breading, the beet salad had only a few beets. The pork chop - nothing was good…it was dry, couldn’t find the apples, and the cheese could not be found and it was tasteless. I haven’t salt and peppered my food in a restaurant for so long and had to with this and still couldn’t eat it - was like a porridge. They were out of scallops.

    The burger was good, but I not special as I would have expected, given that they use Wagyu beef. $10 for a glass of beer is simply overpriced. The seating outside is great, but the place is too expensive for what you're getting.

    We were so excited to eat at Beach Cafe again and were sorely disappointed- the menu is significantly reduced, the flavor profiles of the dishes don’t match and are also fairly bland. The burger is over priced for a soggy wet bun. I would really like to see items from the previous menu return and a larger selection.

    Our server was so sweet and helpful. After we finished our meal she brought us two beers that we hadn't ordered- I had to tell her she had the wrong table! Easy mistake, she was great! Great food great view. I had two guests from So. Cal. It was a great choice to show off the great view.

    The first 80F day of the year! Started dinner with the crab artichoke appetizer-great, but the toast made it spectacular. Shared the spinich salad-loved the egg! While we waited for our entrees, our wonderful waitress, Jan, took great care of us while we watched the resident bald eagle dive for his dinner. The cioppino was wonderful-with a great assortment of seafood-and lots of it! My husband had the ahi, which was perfectly prepared. One last shout out to Jan our server. A good meal is so much better when you have a great service!

    Service was great. Menu was limited and pricing seemed a bit high. Our food was very good!! We have always loved that restaurant and been there several times. This time was a little limited in our entire party of 4 opinion. Overall we had a very good experience. Just not quite a 5 in all categories.

    I am one of those people who would rather have vaccine verification. The masking is not properly effective in this environment due to the removal of them to eat and drink. In the future, I will choose places who require proof of vaccine. The virus is not done with us yet especially for kids under 5 years old.

    We had not been here for a few years, having moved away, but while in town visiting friends we made a point to eat here. I have to give the wait staff, just one + her manger, a lot of credit. They worked hard to take care of everyone in the restaurant and did a great job. The food was very good, and hot when brought to the table. The lake views were wonderful and the atmosphere cozy (we were by the fireplace). Overall, a great evening!

    Second time visiting since they re-opened. The food here is so good and the service impeccable. Every single dish (and we ordered a lot of them) was hot, delicious, and beautifully presented. I had requested a specific table, and they were able to delivere on that too! We had a fantastic time (2.5 hours!). Free parking in the evening, and no-barrier entry (for those with trick knees) a bonus.
