Sand dabs good. Salmon dry. Calamari overbreaded. View and location for a walk post date is not to be beat.

We made reservations a week in advance but they sat us in the back by the kitchen … we definitely ordered less than we normally would have and one in our group didn’t order at all. Totally had 0 ambiance. Waste of money to be honest. Really depressing experience:( we were really looking forward to it.

Stroganoff is one of those dishes you plan a return trip for.

We were one of the first into the door. We were taken to an inside table? Why would I wait 1/2 hour to get in, with reservations and be seated inside away from fresh air and the ocean. Not very reasonable. We had to ask to be seated in the outside deck area. The hostess seemed to be put out by this and it frustrated her. Then seated us at a small inadequately sized table so one of us had to stare into the window of the restaurant interior. Not too happy. Seated other couples that entered after us at a table with a beautiful view. Not to mention they were a two person party at a 4 chair table. Our initial wait for service was also less than adequate. Needless to say, it will no longer be our go to spot. It was a 2 to 3 time a month dining spot, but we don’t like politicking or begging for seating. Prior to this experience a choice was given, and we were asked inside or out. We are wide open, you are the first in the door, where would you like to sit. Anyway, not what was expected when we went out of our way to sit at an appropriate location. Plenty of other go too’s in the area.

Usually all the fish is on top of a large pile of pasta when you order a combination plate. No such thing at the Beach House Restaurant. I had 4 shrimp, 2 scallops, 10 clams and 14 pieces of salmon which was more than I could eat. All of it was delicious.

The service was good and the food was nice but nothing special. The big problem is that waiters and customers are not all masked, there is a great deal of shouting even in the outside seating area which is partially enclosed. For Covid safety I do not recommend this restaurant. I have no idea what the problem is that the place cannot be safety compliant.

Service was attentive and quite good. Food was mediocre. Our Calimari starter and sand dabs dinner were very overcooked, and a brussel sprouts starter was so bad that I sent it back. Very disappointing overall

Salmon plate had excessive gravy on and around mashed potatoes. Turf and surf top sirloin was well prepared but very chewy. French fries were outstanding. Wine selection and prices were extremely reasonable.

Hostess was kind and accommodating..food was excellent. Had the sunset menu..service was not so great. Kept having to ask the busboy for drinks. And check..tried to get desert but our waitress never came with a menu. They lost out on that as it was my husbands birthday. We ended up going somewhere else for desert. It other than that beautiful place to bring friends and family from out of town.

The place was just ok. Server was great or else this would have gotten two stars. There are so many wonderful spots to eat in that area, and this just wasn’t worth it to me. It felt like a bubba gumps and that is not the experience I thought I was going to have.

First class casual place to eat. Service is always the best. Jose took great care of us and we took friends from Idaho. They loved it. We will be back as this is our main place for dinner when in PG.

Oh my gosh the solarium was SO LOUD. For that alone I would not likely go back. My dinner guests couldn’t hear each other without shouting, quite literally. That aspect was exhausting. Additionally, although called an outdoor space, I did not feel it was ventilated enough, and that along with everyone talking at high volume without masks made me concerned for my safety. Will do take out if there is a next time.

We have been trying to go to this restaurant for several years. We were finally successful in getting a reservation for Friday night and we met friends there for an early dinner. We ordered the two appetizers - firecracker shrimp and calamari. The shrimp was good (& spicy). The calamari a tiny bit greasy. For the main course we had the sand dabs almondine and the scallops pot pie. The pot pie was delicious. The sand dabs were again a bit greasy & served with perhaps too much lemon butter sauce. In future, I would share the dinner order of sand dabs. Our waiter was quite good. But about half-way through the dinner we started to feel pressure to "eat and leave". A lot of the wait staff hovered trying to quickly remove our plates as we finished each course. Again, this was a beautiful warm Friday night in PG and when we did leave, there was quite a line of people at the door, so I'm not surprised that there was interest in turning our table. Ambiance was good ~ how can you go wrong sitting at the ocean front at sunset?

Beach House is the most picturesque restaurant in Pacific Grove. Food is not as great as the view. The menu is standard fare, not much innovation. Bartender, Regina is awesome and staff is very attentive and professional.

So sorry to see the sunset dinner specials eliminated. We would go at least once a month. I doubt we will return except for very special occasions.
