The location is nice, the view spectacular but the menu is limited and overpriced. Rather than quote the prices for simple things like a hamburger with fries I would refer you to their website which is to check out the menu and prices. The restaurant has recently changed hands and its predecessor was great so our group, who would go there once a year for a special lunch, were disappointed.

We wanted a nice outdoor setting for my girl's bachelorette dinner and Beach House Grill did the job. Our table was ready, they put the heaters on after sunset, exchanged a cocktail that my friend didn't like, different servers frequently checked on us (and even took our group pictures), fries were amazing, and our server (sorry, forgot his name) even bought us dessert! The only con was the attack of the bugs/flies - I know it's nature but maybe have some citronella candles around? All in all, great spot for chow and a scenery.

Beach House Grill is a short walk from where we are staying & since it was on Open Table, we thought we'd give it a try for dinner. It's right on the beach, so we had a view of the lake & the setting sun. Our server, Katie, was very friendly and attentive. One of the specialities on the menu was the Santa Maria BBQ, so we decided to try the BBQ Tri TIp. The meat was a bit dry & overcooked, plus had a lot of fat on it, and I commented about it to our server and asked her to pass the info along to the chef, which she did, in addition to the manager. Whereas all I did was comment, i.e. I told her it was a comment, not a complaint, they were kind enough to take 20% off the bill, which we appreciated.

Came in for dinner last night and had an absolutely amazing time. The atmosphere of the restaurant is awesome! Right on the water, really relaxed and fun. The night we came in there was live music and it just added to the experience. The food was great! The chicken sandwich was awesome, I would definitely recommend it. All of the staff were beyond helpful and amazing. Our server last night was Eric and made our experience even better. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in Tahoe! I will be back for sure!

The food was excellent! We had two vegetarians with us and they had great options. There was a lot of variety. Staff was nice, views spectacular.

We've made Beach House Grill an annual must do during each of our summer trips to Tahoe. This time might be the last however. Could have been a bad night for the cook, but the tri-tip dinner was not at all what we hoped for. The meat was chewy and flavorless. We asked for A1 just to get it down. The balance of the meal was just ok at best. The beer selection is pretty minimal. If you have a favorite, it's likely not available. The view of the lake is great, but the atmosphere of the dining area is pretty bare. In year's past, the patio had containers of flowering plants that really added to the appeal. Those are now gone. The wait staff was friendly, but the service was slow at times (the salad came out about a minute before the dinner). Again, this all could have been just a "bad night", but next time we'll go somewhere else just in case.

Such a beautiful lakeside dining location! Sunset was incredible along with our delicious meal. It's a seasonal grill open Memorial Day through Labor Day, weather permitting of course due to the outside only patio. But worth the long wait through the winter for this marvelous restaurant on the sand with the Tahoe sunsets. Their new chef & head manager have really over taken the grill and made a new name for the beach house this season, along with their incredible staff. We enjoyed sharing the Santa Maria tri tip plate with ranch style beans & delicious grilled squashes, and our son absolutely loved the mushroom bruschetta with goat cheese wow & of course the soft-serve ice cream! I hear their chicken sandwich is incredible and I can't wait to try it on our next visit soon.

I took my dad who is from Saskatchewan to dine at sunset at this lovely restaurant. We had a beautiful night and our waiter was wonderful. He was super attentive. The menu is small but there is something for everyone. The wine list was great and not expensive. The ambience was beautiful. Loved our experience.
