    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.

    Had 6pm reservation. Sat down at 6pm. No waiter or server for 30 minutes. Not even a glass of water. Asked 3 different waiters and servers to send over our waiter. After 35 minutes got up and left. Never even met my waiter. So disappointed

    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.

    They had run out of some of their side items displayed on the menu. Service was just ok… the server had forgotten to give us the initial rolls that come with each table. I had to remind the waiter of my drink order twice… really wasn’t a big deal but if I am to be charged a premium rate, one would expect premium service to go along with that. Maybe it was just a one off experience since we have dined there before and enjoyed it. We may try this place again in the future… but they have a lot of comparable restaurants close by that we frequent and will most likely stick to.

    Unfortunately the entire experience was horrific! We had 6:30 reservations - waited 30 min for someone to show up for drinks - 30 minutes later the drinks arrived in plastic cups. Was told no more glasses appetizers: sushi rolls were just ok, the pizza should not be served - typical school lunch pizza if that! The entrees took another hour with the fish & chips horrible. We didn’t leave until 9:45 and we left angry. I spoke to one manager & all he did was ask where I was seated. Never came by to check on us - nor did he offer an explanation let alone a complimentary cup of coffee! Good Luck Beach Tavern seems like you lack help and food quality - it’s going to be a long summer & it just began!!

    Muscles were bad, had to send them back. Service was terrible, waited to have table cleared and for condiments. Not once did a manager come over to ask us how we were doing and apologize for serving bad food. We’ve been here several times and always had a good experience, this was very disappointing.
