They have a diversified menu and good food. Some prices seemed pretty high but then my entree salad was only $10. Service was excellent and the view is spectacular. They have outdoor seating but not until April.
Wonderful view, nice food, good appies
Extremely slow, uncaring service. Didn't get to the food; left after 20 min. of waiting.
The waitress was great but the food a bit disappointing.
I ordered the Halibut entree . The roasted
Asparagus and polenta were very good, however I thought the halibut was pretty mediocre and very dry. Since the halibut was the highlight for me I was rather disappointed.
This is a great lunch spot. Food was good but it took quite a while to get our food. Menu has eggs throughout the day which allowed my daughter to get steak and eggs (looked good) while I had a club sandwich that was yummy.
Autumn salad was terrific with blackened salmon on top.
Our waiter made the meal. Our waiter was Erich and you could tell he has been a waiter for awhile. He suggested the salads with the blackened salmon on top and it was one of the best salads I've ever had. He was terrific!!
Wonderful view, great food. Luv it!
We were expecting upscale and the interior is not. Service was too casual, "you guys want anything else?" Worse, the patio tables and propane heaters were not available on a perfect weather weekend!
The food was very good but the star of the lunch was our server Erich. He was attentive without hovering. He brought a plate of munchies and apologized that there would be a delay in getting our food. My husband had ordered the Autumn Salad with blackened salmon and the salmon was overcooked. Erich sent it back and said he would not serve it . He made the right decision because my husband said the salmon was cooked perfectly. Erich comped our drinks and made the whole experience very pleasant. It is a fairly long drive for us but we will be back largely because of the incredible service Erich provided.
The food was tasty, service was good and the view is always nice. I have dined here on and off for a long time and generally feel it is a good value for the money and a nice experience overall.
The services at this restaurant is excellent.
I can no longer say anything good about this restaurant except for the view if you sit by a window and it’s summertime LOL. The food is not good at all. The fish on the fish and chips platter taste like rubber I believe the fish is probably frozen. The burgers are overpriced and do not taste that good. We will not be back.
I was so looking forward to taking out business colleagues visiting from the east coast to have some great seafood at a view restaurant on the Eastside. Well, the Cafe delivered on the view. The salmon special, unfortunately, was dry, over cooked, underseasoned, with a quinoa that was perfectly cooked, yet flavorless. I'm not quite sure how a Puget Sound restaurant hasn't figured out how to cook salmon, but there obviously needs to be a revisit to that menu as well as the cook's skills: At least there was consistency as all four of the servings were uniformly bad. The wait staff was friendly, however, the 20 minutes between ordering coffee and the delivery of the coffee, when there were maybe 15 people in the restaurant was not optimal. You may want to rethink the chowder recipe as well - or perhaps that was left over from the weekend. You know what they say, never order seafood on a Monday.
Very generic, very sleepy. Nothing remarkable about food offerings, service, atmosphere. No particular complaints, just no reason to return.
Tonight we went to the Beach Cafe for Valentine’s dinner with two other couples. Unfortunately our food was just warm, not hot and the Sweet potato fries were cold and wimpy. Our server was great but it was busy and we couldn’t find her to tell her so we just ate our food even though it wasn’t great the way it was served. It still tasted okay even though it wasn’t hot.
I have been there many times and the food has always been delicious. Tonight it tasted like they made batches of food ahead of time so they could plate the food as fast as possible. We enjoyed ourselves and we will go back again, just not for a special occasion like Valentines Day dinner. Our server and the hostess were great!!
Great service and new menu since we were last there. Really good entree choices!!
We always enjoy Beach Cafe, but don't go often as they have limited vegan/GF combinations.
I do always like the signature vegan dish they offer - very tasty but not nearly filling enough. I usually add on the sweet potato fries, unfortunately they are no longer GF. Please, please go back to the old GF version.
Service was very slow. Very noisy and crowded. Seated by large party and had to deal with lots of activity happening at that table that was very distracting. Service was really poor. Took a long time to get our food and had to ask another server to get our check.
This place was great for an afternoon lunch with the ladies. It wasn't super loud or overcrowded when we went and the staff was very friendly. The food was delicious and affordable for being in Kirkland on the water.
The vegetarian options were not great. They had multiple burgers on the menu, it would have greatly improved the vegetarian options to have a vegeburger that could be substituted for the other burgers, this would be easy to do.
Our waitress was fabulous. Sunday, Feb 4, 2018, 12:30-2:30.
Good aelection of seafood and some gluten-free options available. There was even a gf brownie sundae whiich was a treat!
Sweet server... timely serving of food
The food was Ok! It was much better in the past. I asked for well done burger, but it was pinkosh! My boyfriend's steak was served in bowl instead of flat plate which was hard to cut it! In general, it was not worth the price at all.
Service was a bit off the night we visited. Orders wrong and and my dinner was "stolen" by another wait staff for a different table and had to be remade. Seating was a bit cramped and shoved against the wall. It was busy, bustling and loud which made the business meal a bit more challenging o be heard, however the food was very tasty once received correctly. Hoping they were just having an off night or temporarily understaffed.
Quiet, prompt and courteous staff, great menu to choose from, and most importantly super good food.
Good food, convenient, great location accepts the “Passport Unlimited” card. Great place for a business lunch or client appreciation brunch.
I love the Beach Cafe... During any season!! Two fireplaces inside. Get waterfront dining outside in summer. Just great!
One of the great locations for any venue! Excellent food and ambiance (the lake)! Also, excellent service, especially from those who have been there awhile and know some of us regulars! :)
The above-and-beyond service provided by our waiter, Erich, made this birthday celebration extra special.
Met a friend for dinner; it’s the perfect Friday night place!
The view is the only redeeming quality about this restaurant, nothing else was noteworthy. Service was just ok- we stood up front waiting to be seated for at least five minutes without being greeted. Food was mediocre, nothing to rave about, also a very unusual menu. The website indicates seafood, and the location & photo's seem more upscale but the food is mostly cafe/bar food items with a few exceptions. Also- they stop serving breakfast/brunch at 11am!!! What's the point of even having the menu if it closes that early? Overall, not terrible, but not somewhere I'd want to go again.
Everything from the service to the quality of food was poor. Service was slow - the server did not show up for quite some time after the initial welcome. Appetizer had cold and stale pita bread - also partially burned. One of the entrees was also cold and seemed stuffed with stale cheese and tomatoes. I went to the restaurant basis recommendations I’d heard but will never visit again.
Weird experience. Food was just ok, server made a mistake on one of the orders for our table and we had to wait quite a while for the correct dish. Server laughed it off and didn’t offer any compensation or other way of making it right. Later she made a mistake with dessert. We were going to stay for drinks and coffee but after so many errors we just decided to go elsewhere.
Love coming here in Christmas day for a delicious meal and wonderful service!
I would like to see more vegan options and/or return to the Vegan Plate which we thought was very good. I probably won't return unless the menu changes. I also wasn't that impressed with the tea selection. However, service was good per usual, and the atmosphere is nice with water view.
Quiet and nice. A little on the casual side, so I’d say not awesome for a special event unless you’re with a group. Food was fantastic!
Christmas Eve brunch
Great food, fantastic service!
Too expansive for mediocre food. Great location on a sunny day when you can sit outside.
