    My husband and I absolutely love trying out new places, especially ones by the water. We had heard good things about beach tavern- including the gorgeous, island-y atmosphere and incredible food. Those definitely did not disappoint. However, sadly, the service from the moment we got there was honestly an embarrassment. The host (manager) forgot we were waiting at the hostess stand while he checked on a table for us. We waited an extra 10 minutes for him to return, while others were seated (by another hostess). When he came back to the podium, he looked at us and said “are you next?”. That wasn’t a good sign. The rest was a mess. We were ignored while other tables got served. Our young server really had no idea what she was doing. We waited forever to have our drinks brought, silverware brought, and when our food finally came, they delivered everything at once including 2 appetizers, a salad, and our entrees. Unacceptable for the prices charged and a more upscale restaurant. Then, they took the entrees back, and of course, once we finished our apps (which the server kept asking “do you want your entrees and I had to keep telling her we are not finished with our apps so NO!”, it took another 45 MINUTES to get our entrees, that we had to ask several times! We almost fell over laughing in our seats when our server came up and said “what happened to your entrees?”- and I said “you’re asking us that question?! You tell me!”. That’s after she kept walking by our table, not asking if we needed anything. Really sad and embarrassing g because honestly the food is outstanding. The manager kept coming by, apologizing and making excuses (4 hostesses didn’t show up, etc), but simply took off only the drinks (after my husband and I being somewhat understanding). So sadly, even though the views of the harbor are simply breathtaking, and the food is outstanding, we won’t be back.

    Had a reservation for 5:45, party of 4 on a holiday weekend. No wait time, which was great. We got seated in the dining room next to the bar and it was a stunning view. Food service and quality was poor, although our server appeared new. The experience was quite bad, pasta over cooked on two dishes, clams were chewy, lobster was tough and fried chicken batter was like cake. Drinks came out incorrect and when corrected were too sweet/ overwhelming. Sangria was like watered down wine. Wings were the best and calamari was tender. The only plus! Manager accommodated taking one dish, one drink and 15% the entire check. Even so our bill was still over $240. I blame management for overbooking. I’m certain our experience would be completely different had the cooking staff and bartenders not been so overwhelmed. Wait staff would have paid more attention to their tables had they not been spread so thin. I understand a busy holiday weekend, but you have to accommodate your staff in order to produce a quality service.

    This restaurant is not worth the money. There were two hostesses yet there was a long wait to be seated because the hostesses couldn’t figure out where to seat parties who already had reservations. The food was not good - steaks came out well done and had to be sent back, spaghetti vongole tasted like overcooked buttered pasta, and everything lacked any flavor. It also took over an hour for our entrees to be served.

    Had to wait 30 mins for reservation. Server and staff were very pleasant but service time was very slow. Food is tasty but not on par with absurdly expensive prices (NYC steakhouse prices with mid-level fine dining cuisine). The beautiful views, ambiance, and friendly staff help offset the shortcomings. Never lives up to the high expectations but i never leave disappointed or upset… it’s a middling “eh” place with great views.

    Made a reservation for 7 and was not seated until almost 8. Had to use paper napkins since they were out or real napkins and drink wine out of water glasses. Food was still amazing but overall experience wasn’t what I was anticipating.

    I have always loved this place. It’s in a great location, nice place and the food is always really good. Tonight however it was chaotic. The front desk was not being run well, it was so loud I couldn’t hear myself think, and we waited forever to even get a drink, let alone food. I felt bad for our server, because clearly he was overworked. No issue with the server. Maybe the place is short staffed. I totally get that. But… If you are short staffed, you need to take less reservations because you were making your customers mad. You are making your customers not want to return. I heard it from at least four separate parties that were there. It was taking so long to get a drink, or to even see our server again, I went to the bar by myself and got a drink for myself and my wife.

    Lovely setting, accommodating staff… we ate outdoors at a waterside table we reserved on Open Table. Be aware that the waterside tables are all high tops. Our food was freshly prepared, and good. I won’t criticize just because I might have prepared the lobster roll with less mayonnaise… the lobster was perfect. Crème brûlée outstanding!

    Went here for Father’s Day, had a wonderful meal and the drinks were great, I had a smoke mamacita and it was exceptional. Also the general manager Evon is great, super attentive and friendly. Will definitely be coming back, hopefully we get to sit on the dock next time.

    Waitress was very inattentive. We ordered the garlic clams and one wasn’t even opened so serving that was shameful. My drink was forgotten about and we were served warm water after asking for cold water. Love this place for ambiance but it didn’t make for a Happy Father’s Day.

    We came to celebrate Father’s Day. The Brest was hard and dry. The Halibut had no taste, we added salt and pepper to make it eatable. The apple Tart was extremely sweet, and the apples were mushy and sugary. We will not come back.

    It was very hot inside which I did not expect having made reservations. The door to outside dining was left open on a 90 degree night ! We asked for it to be closed but it never happened. Really took away the beauty of the overall setting. Prices were way over priced and out of control

    Hostess did not want to seat us, rude, had better things to do. Did not want to seat us on dock. Even tho it was early and no one there. Did not give us menus. Did not offer us bread. Was not timely with check ins. Food was sub par and late. Had numerous other food/drink incorrectly dropped at our table. Pep pizza was HORRIBLE sweet greasy sauce. Weak wine pour. AMBIANCE was 10/10. If only they could hire good hostess, servers, and chef…. Someone is not doing their job. Disappointing.

    The scenery is absolutely beautiful and the food was delightful but, I am completed disgusted with the customer service. I made a reservation I was told that they were just cleaning up my table and was told that I would receive a text when my table was ready. 45 minutes passed by I went to check about the table and the host complete forgot about my family and I. Finally when we were seated I asked to sit closer to the water and was told that those tables were only for parties of six. However, other tables closer to the water had parties of 2-3 guest. It took forever to just put in drink orders. They forgot our water and our second appetizer. We ordered a brownie the waiter forgot to put the order in. I understand that it was super busy but, if business is this bad maybe you should consider decreasing the capacity. I am truly upset I chose this place for my fathers birthday and we were completely dissatisfied with this place. The host were rude and had an attitude when I asked about my table. They were not apologetic at all and the communication was horrible. The least they could’ve said was they’ll be a bit of a wait instead of saying we’re just cleaning off the table. Will not return.
