The sea bass was very good but the sides that accompanied the dish was less than satisfactory.

Sand dabs almondine Was large enough to take home for two meals. Served on a bed of fabulous rice mixture and green beans. My guess that that’s broiled salmon again enough for two people or two meals.

The service still is a little iffy. This is the third time I’ve been where the service was subpar.

First time here. Found it from a random site. So glad we did. Had a reservation so we were brought right in to a window table with fantastic views, although there isn’t a bad seat in the house. We ordered the wedge salad and special roasted tomatoes with burrata cheese for starters. Both were excellent. The wedge salad also had firecracker shrimp with it so quite filling. For entrees we had the cioppino and the beef fillet stroganoff. Again both were fantastic! All in all a wonderful evening. We will definitely come back on our next trip to Monterey.

The food was excellent. The blue cheese wedge was the best I have had. Sat outside and they had enough fire going to keep it warm. The view was very nice. Definitely will return.

The Beach House offers great food and service, and if you ask, a early bird (4:00 -
5:30) special menu offers several dishes for under $15.00. Tell them you are a local resident.

By far the worst sand dabs ever. Over breaded, bland, mushy, tasteless. They claim these are fresh and local but I’m extremely skeptical about that claim as they were twice the size of any sand dabs I’ve ever seen. The accompanying green beans were no bette; soggy and way overcooked. I’ve had better from a can. The rice pilaf was equally as bad and also had no taste. The service was almost satisfactory, especially for a Saturday night, but there was little concern for us and no inquiry about the food. BTW we also had a salad that taste like it had been prepared and refrigerated a week before, and some Brussels sprouts which were at least okay although the pancetta was tough and tasteless and there were no hazelnuts. The atmosphere was so loud it was next to impossible to have a conversation without yelling.

This is one of our go-to places when visiting Monterey and Pacific Grove. The staff is friendly and attentive. The views are incredible. The menu is very reasonably priced for what you get. The food is fantastic and the drinks are great.

I had always thought of the Beach House as a tourist spot. However, we at there about 2 years ago and I was pleasantly surprised. We had out of town guests recently so we thought the Beach House would be a good choice. We were also celebrating my wife's birthday. When I made the reservation over a week in advance, I requested a window table and noted it was a birthday. When we arrived at the restaurant, the table they offered us was near the kitchen. We were told it would be a 25 minute wait for a window table. We didn't want to wait and took the table near the kitchen. The service was not very good. The waitress constantly reached over our shoulders to place or remove plates. I ordered a glass of wine when the entrees were served and didn't get it until I had finished eating. I had sand dabs that were supposed to have a lemon butter sauce. I couldn't find a bit of sauce on the fish. One of our party ordered filet and shrimp scampi. The "shrimp scampi" was a few shrimp on a skewer and a side of butter sauce. Not what I call shrimp scampi. I don't foresee us returning to the Beach House.

The ambience, the view, and the food were all above average. The service was slow, which our server explained was due to a couple of employees being out. He was kind enough to bring us a dessert to share because we never received a second glass of wine that we had ordered. Overall, I would definitely return for another meal.

The table was small and poorly located. We had advised it was our 37th anniversary and reserved a window table but received a side table with one person having the view of the kitchen. Server was nice but overwhelmed and rushed. No water refills flat wine , and ice cold side dish...Expecting top grade fresh seafood we were advised to get stroganoff. The lambchops were excellent but wife's sanddabs were just average. It was Thursday and I think the staff was stretched... We might have caught them on a off night. Tarpy's Roadhouse far superior...

Ask for the Early Bird or Local Resident's special before 6PM - a great deal! The location at Lover's Point in Pacific Grove has views of Monterey Bay and the Pacific Ocean from almost every table. Service is friendly, but a shortage of servers makes it a bit slow.

Masks were NOT required. While my husband and I came in (and left) with masks on, most of the staff, unsmiling hostess included, were maskless (save for one busboy), as were the guests who came in or out. Unfortunately, it didn't dawn on us until later on. It was as if things were back to normal. (Trust us, we want it to be, but we're not there yet!). We should've left. I feel sorry for the elder diners (of which there were a few) who were exposed to unnecessary risk. The food was decent and perfectly cooked, but not unforgettable; the service was slow and not worth the risk.

The service was great. The food was bland. The wild rice tasted like plastic and the green beans were over cooked. The fish was cooked well but very bland. The French dip was tender but also bland. The wine was served in a generic wine glass. Both red and white were served in the same type of glass. The waiter could not recommend a particular dish and could not recommend a wine. He gave wonderful service but also needs to be educated on what the Beach House services.

not eager to pan a local restaurant, but the food was mediocre at best: sand dabs choking in a flavorless cream sauce over somewhat taste-free wild rice. not cheap, either. the service was great … until we had to wait 20 minutes before getting someone’s attention to pay the bill. still, a great location
