    Everything was fine. We enjoyed the meal and the service was good. The big turn off of the beach tavern is the noise. It is ALWAYS so loud there. And a reason we rarely go there. But we went for lunch so we were expecting less noice. One reason is that people today seem to be ok with being huge loudmouths in restaurants. I have noticed this at other restaurants. But it seems to be worst at BT. I think that your acoustics make it louder. Perhaps you can do some noise dampening things.

    I love Beach Tavern - good food, on the dock, surrounded by palm trees. My in-laws were in town, so we wanted to go someplace special. I know BT can't control the weather, but it was VERY windy this night. We requested to sit outside, but with the wind being so bad, multiple umbrellas were blown over and their string lights were smashed on the dock. I just wish someone had proactively asked us "would you like to go inside or have a different table" vs. us requesting. That said, we were moved inside. We moved to the banquet hall seating in the side room. Which normally would be lovely - but there was massive water leaking from the ceiling (and yes, onto the table). I'm not sure why we were sat at the table with the MOST leakage given all other tables in that room weren't occupied other than one large party in the corner, but that's that. We decided not to say anything, but of course I was a bit embarrassed given the prices are so high at BT and you're hoping for a good ambience. Our waiter was a nice guy and attentive, but my in-laws are British. My brother in law asked for a Tuna Burger - and ended up with a regular burger. I heard him perfectly, so I wish the waiter would have asked if he didn't understand the order. Overall, was a disappointing experience relative to the usual, so I was kind of bummed because the bill was just as high as ever. Going forward, I'll likely pick somewhere I know all of the elements will be on-point if I have company.

    Second time here because of the beautiful marina view and live music. Unfortunately not a good experience this time. Not a busy afternoon but service was slow due to short staff. Ordered berry, berry spice cocktail but taste like jalapeño water. Complaint and changed to different cocktail. Then the fish and chips were super oily. We quickly ate my chicken sandwich and left.

    When were told that we couldnt sit on the deck because we would have to wait an hour, however, the party that came right after us with the same amount of guests was seated on the deck. The server/kitchen basically got everything in our order wrong. It was basically a horrible experience.

    The hosts had a little bit of attitude when talking about our reservation. Why does this place give a request option for inside or outside when making the reservation, but then we’re told at the host stand that they don’t take special requests. We got outdoor seating anyway and it was beautiful, I loved the view. We were sat at a hightop table that’s was wobbly, had ants on it, and a part of the tree we were sitting next too went right over the middle of the table and touching my boyfriends head while we were eating so we had to move the table ourselves. After we saw the prices we decided to not even get an appetizer. The food came out surprisingly fast, however the taste of the food was almost inedible. I got the grouper santorini and I couldn’t finish it. The fish itself was dry and the breading was soggy. The risotto wasn’t risotto, it was just old rice that tasted like chemicals. Some chickpeas and peas were thrown around it and tzatziki sauce was drizzled on the plate. I barely finished my meal and was definitely not worth $34. My boyfriend got the lobster roll and the first thing we noticed was how small it was. His was $32 and was not an entree sized meal. It was cold and had so much mayo on it he couldn’t even finish it. We spend $83 after tip and barely ate anything. We ended up going home and making another dinner. Do not recommend this place unless you just want a pretty view.

    My wife and I had a 345 reservation we were promptly seated. I’d like to know why I could only get a 345 sheating since the place was at 20% capacity We both got a bowl of the clam chowder (just okay)and the $99 seafood tower my wife also got wine and I got beer Prices are outrageous food quality was fair the lobster tail was okay the shrimp were good but the oysters were below par. Raw clams were way too big ,muscles were floating in vinegar ? When you spend over $200 including a tip for an afternoon lunch the food should be outstanding! I had two bottles of beer the first bottle was fine the second bottle was flat ? I thought the waitress would’ve said something since we left all the muscles on the plate including the clams, my beer was barely drank I thought she would’ve said something but all I wanted to do was get out of there the place is way too loud !!!especially when children are in there , I love children but that restaurant just echo sound tremendously !!!

    I have never written a negative review about a restaurant. I just don't go back. I had to with this place. I dine out a lot and this was the worst experience I have ever had at any restaurant. Waitress was miserable and slow with everything. My steak came out over cooked and dry. I didn't have time to send it back and really wasn't that concerned. We had apps and drinks beforehand and wasn't super hungry. The waitress never came back to the table so I had to get up, find her and ask her to come over to the table. I asked her for something like a hollandaise sauce; anything to dip it in. She offered me ketchup! For a $62 8oz filet. Never saw her again. Never brought the ketchup or anything else. After approximately 45 minutes we got up and walked to the front and I approached someone that appeared to be a manager and asked him if I could pay my bill and that the waitress was horrible and never returned to our table. He handed me my bill and didn't say a word. I paid it, no tip and left. I get it's a tourist area, they don't worry because there will always be customers but this place is the worst! Stay away. Too many other places to enjoy in the area.

    What happened… ? I have been eating at Beach Tavern for a few years and have always enjoyed the service, the food and the cocktails. My dinner last night was not as enjoyable as my past experiences. First the service.. super slow, asking for things that took forever to come or that didn’t come at all and just not the great service I’ve had in the past at BT. The food was just ok. We ordered the clam pie, crab cake, shrimp cocktail and the brussel sprouts to start. All of the starters were great and delicious. For dinner we had the 3 fish dishes that were bland and just ok. We ended with 2 desserts one good one not good. The cocktails were also not the same so we switched to wine. All in all it wasn’t an awful experience but it definitely wasn’t what you expect at BT.

    Besides the beautiful setting, the food and the service was very good at Beach Tavern. I had 3 young children with me and the food came out very quickly and everything we asked for was delivered to our table quickly. The clam chowder was delicious - the only negative was the kids portion of chicken nuggets was very big and full of french fries but otherwise all went well.

    Go here for the setting/ambiance. The food is "meh" and overpriced. We sat outside which was on a dock with a nice view of the bay/inlet. The dock is very nicely decorated with flowers and live palm trees everywhere- very nice, tropical feel. The food was good, but nothing to rave about, and is overpriced.

    Don't be fooled. This is an appetizer and burger joint (it has tavern in its name afterall). Lots of nice sounding dishes and plates but we had the Lobster scampi and Bronzini. Both below average. Dry and not tasty. The Calamari appetizer was fantastic. While eating my "Lobster", I was envious of the guy next to me with an awesome looking hamburger. By the way, if you want linguini with your Lobster Scampi, it is not included. Would've been nice if waitress would've mentioned that. At the end of the meal I asked about that and she said, "oh, alot of people make that mistake". Well, OK, if alot of people make that mistake then maaaybe you want to mention it beforehand?? Just a thought. Setting is great and restaurant is clean and bright. Recommend but not for nice dinner.

    Whoever trained the staff did an amazing job. Our server was fantastic and the food runners were spot on. They even got us something that we asked for. Usually runners never get you the extra things you need for your dinner. But they do here. The food was spectacular and so was the atmosphere. A true find! We will be back!

    Such a cute place. Really made me feel like I am at the Jersey Shore. Service was just okay. Our waitress didn’t know much when we asked questions. Floor was very wet and when we pointed it out to multiple employees, none of them dried it off. I guess they would rather have a customer fall. Food was good but not great. Probably wouldn’t go back unless they trained or changed their staff.

    We loved the atmosphere. We sat outside on a beautiful day and nearly forgot we were not on vacation. Loved it. The food was excellent. The service was good, but only a few workers walked around with smiles, and the young woman who sat us down was frowning. Maybe she was overwhelmed at that moment? I tried to let a manager know of the few who were helpful to us, but there was a meeting going on, and I was not able to do so. I had the pork cutlet Milanese -- best Milanese salad I ever had! Large -- fantastic. My husband had to grouper Reuben -- also delicious. He had two craft beers, and I had the white sangria (not too sweet). We started with the mussels. The broth was delicious. Overall, a great visit and we will be back! Looking forward to a fall/winter visit in the late afternoon and sitting at the pretty bar!
