Beach Tavern - Channel Club Marina
Friday - Saturday: 11:30am - 11:00pm
friendly service. good table inside. good burger and cocktails.
fries could have been a bit crispier but all in all, enjoyable evening. and live music!
The service is impeccable, knowledgeable and friendly. Appetizers, main corpses and deserts were fresh and delicious. Only the noise level inside is terrible, even far away from the bar - due to the acoustics. You have to yell to make yourself understandable - and that is what everyone does, making it even more noisy. Outdoor seating is much better.
Great atmosphere and incredible food. Yes, gourmet seafood, no bib required. Delicious all the way through desserts!
Past experiences have been less than optimal, so we were hesitant about returning. Drinks and food were both enjoyable on this visit. A bit on the loud side, but overall a good experience. We wil go back again to try some other menu items.
the rating reflects the ridiculously high and constant noise level coming from a birthday party celebration of at least 30 that included guests drinking straight out of bottles - and no apparent effort to control or at least tone it down. this had a delectorious impact on enjoying an otherwise excellent meal and our friends.
Too loud. Really good food
Nice place to meet friends. Drinks were good. Food is good but too pricey for the taste
One of the best places I have been to on the jersey shore.
We never had an actual server, so the service was terrible and they forgot to put ingredients in a salad! Very Dissappointing!
Great except some acoustical panels are needed to buffer noise
Love Beach Tavern
The food is excellent, but if you want to talk and can’t sit outside, your ears will be ringing before you finish your appetizer. It’s LOUD.
It’s unfortunate because dining outside is delightful, a totally different experience.

We eat here about once a week, made the reservation for my sons bday. We waited 15 min for our reserved table and got seated in the overflow/private party room. Tables were too close together and the acoustics were awful, room was very very loud!
Everything was perfect, the food was delicious. Service was excellent.
Great food at an outdoor table overlooking the marina. Great atmosphere!!
Anthony was an excellent waiter! The weather was extremely warm and he was understanding that we needed to leave as the sun was setting on us. He got us the check promptly and had a great manner.
View, food and service was very good. However, were seated in a room with three table of pre-teens who were not properly supervised by their parents in an adjoining table.
Fun place. Good menu. Always enjoy it. Not near much else, but nice to get off ocean ave and the crowds.
Been here several times for dinner, still can’t say I’m overly pleased. Food is ok, nothing special. Service is not very attentive and should be for the meal prices charged. Just not enough staff during busy times. I would recommend going during happy hour at the bar, it’s avluttke more worth the $ and the bar tenders are much more attentive.
excellent food and service- love it However, needs some noise attention perhaps some acoustical panels you can't hear yourself think when dining room is full
Always great food and service. Appreciate the gluten free entrees.
Great food, too noisy...
Food was good. Very noisy inside around bar. Service was just ok. Waiter Anthony was not very attentive and aeemed more concerned about socializing with people than paying attention to getting drinks and meals to the table.
Food, atmosphere and our server Frank was great! I thought the soup was a bit pricey relative to the amount of crab in it...but it was delicious. We would definitely go back.
We have been here several times and always enjoyed, but the last 2-3 times, the service has gone down. I will be taking this restaurant off my list. I hope they can get the service situation under control.
Example of the service issue: We were seated 20mins after our reservation, which was totally fine. Then we sat for 1/2 hour at the table without even an offer of a drink. I had to flag down our waitress and then she seemed annoyed that I asked her to come over. When she finally came for our dinner order one of our guests asked about 2 different dishes and she just said they are very different. Oh okay?? The rest of the dining experience was the same.
The management either needs to train their staff better or find a wait staff that enjoys what they do.
Never again. Harried waitstaff. Unable to properly handle all the tables. The waitstaff literally threw our plates on the table when they remembered what had been ordered. Waitstaff did not advise how the $50 bronzino was prepared and served. Was an ordeal to manage. Requested it’s removal at which time the waiter disappeared and returned stating the fish would be filleted. Due to their unorthodox preparation, one 5 oz fillet is presented which certainly did not warrant paying that sum of money. Manager requested and stated that he’ll buy a round of drinks. Honestly, a restaurant of this caliber ought to be ashamed, hire more people during the summer so that they are not over taxed and can treat their customers with more dignity. Advise: Do not visit on peak summer nights and don’t pay attention to online menu as it is incorrect.
Had a wonderful experience and our server was excellent. Food was delicious, a little pricey but worth it.
Way too loud inside restaurant!!!! Food was great.. but could not wait to get out of there. Will only go back to sit outside.
Order a bottle of red wine and it was probably between 95- 105 degrees. Had to chill it with ice for 20 minutes before you could drink it. Food was very good, salad was excellent and the pasta dishes were also very good. Not sure if the waitress was overbooked but our table did not receive the attention it should have. Otherwise it was fine
Beautiful place! A little haven on the water 💙
My new favorite place for lunch. Am sure it's just as good for dinner though! Love the food, great options, the best service.
The food was very good and David H gave us excellent service. My order came out wrong and he brought out another entree very quickly. I was very impressed. I made a point to let the Manager know how pleased we were with the service. (The Manager had a great sense of humor - I enjoyed our conversation).
I took off a point for two reasons:
(1) While I understand that the chef doesn’t want to make any substitutions so that he can run an efficient operation, there are a number of people like myself who are eating a low carb diet and I would have been very happy if they would have substituted a different vegetable for the French Fries. As a result, Beach Tavern will never be my go to restaurant. There are so many restaurants in the area that do accommodate special requests.
(2) It was so noisy that it was very difficult to have a conversation. We had to shout at each other. Our server had to shout too. There should be a way to fix this (baffles?)
This was a great find! Perfect location with a view of the boats in the harbor. The food was very good but a bit plain. I had the Kale salad .. very simple but delicious. I had added shrimp, if I didn’t it would have been a pretty plain dish. Highly recommend if you are looking for outdoor dining with a view.
We especially loved our server Jessie! She was amazing!
Restaurant was overall pleasant. Food was terrific, Noise level was a little too high
Beautiful place on the water. Sat at bar first to wait for our table. Bar was hopping; bartender very good as were the drinks.
Food very good; a little pricey; our waiter, Guiseppe, was excellent, as was the rest of the wait staff.
Total disappointment. I think we waited close to 15 minutes after seeding before somebody came and sauce to give us menus. Then we invaded an additional 20 minutes until we got our first drinks. we decided we wanted to start with a bottle of wine and some appetizers for the table. The wine took another half hour along with the appetizers we ordered. at this point we decided we wouldn't waste anymore time waiting for dinner and thought it would just ask for the check. And wouldn't you know it took another half hour to arrive as well.
I wish I could tell you that the food made up for the horrible attention to service but alas the food was mediocre and nothing all that special. typical Raw Bar selections that anyone else could do for a lot less money and crab cakes that frankly left a lot to be desired. Especially in August when the BlueClaws are running and they should be at their best.
In short when you pay this kind of money for a place you expect better service. This is supposed to be fine dining at Marina the service more resembled something you might expect from a disgruntled high school student at Applebee's
Great evening down the shore, we really enjoyed our food and overall experience at Beach Tavern. The view of the water was amazing at sunset and our server, Gabriella, was outstanding - spot on recommendations, and the proper amount of attention. Can’t wait to go back!
Enjoyable evening with great food and a most charming waiter. Staff like Giuseppe make your dining experience a treat
Always a great time and delicious food
