Wonderful, leisurely lunch with gorgeous view. Very nice waitress, efficient and friendly.
Food needs a little improvement in quality.
They give large portions for the hotel pricing. Service people were fabulous
For many years I've hosted guests for Special Events at the Beach Cafe. Even though some changes seems worth mentioning, I will continue patronizing the Beach Cafe. Parking is great, location, view and privacy are all +s. The menu is dramatically simplified, making it a "decision" to stay. We asked for special consideration to the way eggs would be cooked and it was not honored. I'm guessing changes are in progress and I'm hoping the Beach Cafe continues to be the quality we've always enjoyed.
Thank you for your recent review and continued patronage. I apologize that your request for eggs to be prepared how you prefer was not honored. If you'd like to let us know when you will be in again we will ensure they are made properly. We have a new culinary team that is currently in the process of revamping all of our menus and I'd love to invite you back during the holidays to see the exciting changes.
Unnerving that this restaurant had an “okay” rating when we arrived.
We certainly understand your concern and have been working diligently to change our rating, which is a lengthy process that our new management team is very committed to. Our inspections have been going very well and our rating will reflect that very soon. I hope you will come in during the holidays for what is certain to be a better experience.
Beautiful views and service was good. Food was just ok. Nothing spectacular.
Our view is remarkable, and I apologize that you felt your meal was not. Please allow us to invite you back so that your entire experience will be memorable and exceed your expectations. We welcome more feedback about your meal and would like to give you a gift card to return to Beach Café.
A bit pricey for 5 breakfasts but the food was excellent and the staff was attentive and polite, very easy and pleasant to deal with
Thank you Rick for your recent review. We appreciate the high marks for food and service, as that is absolutely high on our list of priorities at Beach Café. We are reviewing our pricing and want all of our guests to see and taste the value in the food we serve. We are proud to use local bakeries like Macrina bakery and freshly roasted coffee beans from Fonte coffee, and use organic and local produce as much as possible. Come see us again and try the new breakfast menu coming soon!
Not through Open Table. The restaurant couldn't find our reservation. I had asked for an upper table and we were put at a boring lower table. I had marked that this was for a birthday (5 of us) and we had to asked for someone to help us with a birthday celebration. Kind of frustrating since we went through open table.
Food was tasty, a bit greasy and took awhile to get. Service was slow and our table was basically in a walkway, so a bit awkward seating. Plus is the view was terrific!
I was not sure where was the parking. We appreciate if we can find easily.
Great service and great food.
We ordered Fish and chips and Mahi Taco. Enjoyed both. We switched to sweet potato fries that were crunchy but not overly so. The cole slaw was ok and the tarter sauce was a little watery but passable. Tacos were fresh and moist. Mahi mahi was rightly grilled. Table was available upon arrival because we booked. Service took a while but the server was friendly and helpful.
Great as always
The Beach Cafe is always dependable--it's a Carillon Point gem!
Great outing and all enjoyed meal & beautiful setting.
They were very helpful with ordering for our grandchildren, who are picky eaters.
They even offered a cookie for them after dinner!
The service (unusually) was mixed. The server forgot the order and came back 15 mins later to ask for it again. And then she still forgot to bring the coffee which we had to ask for 15 more mins later. And then slapped the check on the table 10 mins after the food came to the table. This is not my normal experience here by any means.
Asian salad was okay at best. Chicken was tough and salad and dressing were flavorless.
Other than stopping in as the meal arrived the server never returned to check in.
I stumbled upon this place and was so pleasantly surprised. The view was absolutely wonderful. I went when the temperatures didn't allow for us to eat outside, but I can imagine that would be amazing! Parking was easy also as there is public lot nearby. The restaurant also validates so you don't have to pay for parking. I'd definitely go back to this place.
It was a great experience. I would definitely recommend it to everyone.
Nice location and view of the lake. Server was friendly and helpful. The menu is limited, but the sandwich and fries were quite good, despite 2 hairs in the fries.
We've been to Beach Café several times and have had great experiences in the past. Unfortunately, this time wasn't as good. We had a reservation for 3pm on Sunday to celebrate my father's birthday (7 people). Nowhere in the reservation process did Beach Café indicate that they have a limited menu from 3pm to 4pm on the weekends, but when we arrived that is what we were given. We asked if we could have the real dinner menu and were told no. There were about 6 items on the 3pm to 4pm menu - burgers, fries, fish & chips, etc. If we had wanted pub food, we would have gone to a pub. We went to Beach Café to enjoy good seafood and a nice view. Even though the restaurant was practically empty, they seated us at a table in the back with very little view. Our server was nice and very attentive (she didn't have anyone else to serve), but overall we were very disappointed in the experience.
We were able to talk as if we were the only customers in the restaurant. The food was delicious!!
Mediocre food at reasonable prices, but good service. Great location and excellent view.
Yes I would recommend the beech cafe as the food and service are both great
Food prices are 2x their value. Hostess tries to give people tables when there are booths available. View not that good. Would not recommend.
Excellent service, food delivered quickly. Nice view of Lake Washington.
Recommend because of beautiful space and the view! The downfall was the service. Even though we had a reservation, others that just walked in were seated before we were. We ordered clam chowder which wasn't brought out until after the main course was served. We had to ask for it. Water refills were never offered, nor was the desert menu. That being said, we will most likely dine here again because of the location.
Surcharges should be included in pricing on the menu, instead of trying to guilt the customer into thinking they need to support managements forced compliance with minimum wage laws. Service was incredibly slow, with extensive waiting after being seated to take order, and to have table cleared after completing meal and receive the desert menu.
Enjoyed a great dinner with friends out on the patio. Our server Adam was attentive and gracious without being intrusive in any way. Food was delicious, we just love coming to the Beach Cafe.
The seafood Mac-n-Cheese is amazing.... Very slow service though.
yes...but...our order was 30 minutes in the making and was incorrect upon arriving at the table...when queried, our waitress said, 'i must have spaced out'
The waitress we had completely forgot about our table of 6 people. Our food was cold when it came out and we ended up waiting 40 minutes for our food to arrive. We had to ask three different people for our bill because the waitress never came back to check in, etc. There was an automatic tip (a really high % at that) added to our bill so I am under the assumption that this is why we had poor service; because the waitress knew that she was going to receive her tip no matter what.
Overall a good experience. Food was great! The restaurant is a bit outdated. The table we sat on was kinda sticky. I didn't like seeing some of the waitresses wearing shorts but it could be just me :)
We didn’t expect it to be a brunch menu till 3pm!! What a limited menu for a sat 2pm time. Anyway had to make do with fish and chips and some tacos- nothing that special . We were hoping for a larger selection as in their website I didn’t see the timings for lunch as post 3pm.
Great location and deck overlooking Lake Washington. Food was mediocre at best.
Experience ok, but limited menu.
Seated promptly, great service and food. Wonderful view of the water front. A little noisy, but overall an exceptional experience.
This was for brunch. Everyone’s (4 guests) meal arrived cold. One person returned hers to be warmed. It came back warm but with a hair in it. One other persons meal had a bristle from a brush in it. The waitress was quite passive and absent. I’ve eaten hear many times before but not sure I’ll be back.
Great value. Mediocre food. Chowder has too many potatoes. Crab cakes have too little crab.
We had Chapter’s, Caesar salad and salmon for main dishes. All were delicious. They don’t seem to have great deserts. Nice view of the lake at sunset and excellent service. The restaurant is big but still felt intimate to us.
