Beautiful setting and great food. A little understaffed but everyone was doing their best when we had brunch last Sunday around 1PM. There was an unnecessarily long line just to check in to be put on the wait list or seated and frustrated people were walking out. Also making people wait despite the fact that they had many empty tables led me to believe that they were short of wait staff. It was St. Patrick's day and the first sunny Sunday in many weeks here in LA so maybe they were not prepared for the additional people looking to eat brunch at the beach? In any case it was a really nice setting, the food was great and it was a welcome relief from the overcrowding over at places in Venice & Santa Monica.

This was my first time here, and all I can say is that it was an AMAZING first experience! I will definitely be back. All the staff from the Valet to the Restaurant staff was so nice and friendly. I really enjoyed my visit. It’s very refreshing to go to a nice relaxed atmosphere.

Food great. Service friendly and helpful but not always there when you needed them (also the host did not note that I had a reservation even though I told him and thus I got and unnecessary email from OpenTable asking me if I had indeed failed to show).

Decent place. Food is fine but not outstanding. Could have a bit more of a beach / water vibe given the great location. Just a standard hotel bar / restaurant.

Booked a brunch for the family and waited 20 min for our table. Service was standard, we ordered food for our 4 year old 20 mins before we ordered our food and our food arrived before the child and another 20 min wait to add for her..not the best and our bill was charged incorrect too..would we be back...not for a while. Food was nice however..just a rough Sunday for the place.

My parents came to town for my Dads 60th birthday and he wanted to have brunch by the beach so we decided to try this place! We were not disappointed! We got the mimosa flight (not sure of the name, but it was a bottle of champagne with 4 different juices) and it was DELICIOUS. All of our meals were amazing! Normally my mom can find something wrong with her meal but she couldn’t find a thing wrong with it 😂 We sat on the patio and they turned on the braziers and it was warm and bright and lovely hearing the birds sing and the water lapping on the shore. I will definitely be returning and highly recommend!!!

We visited Beachside for breakfast and were disappointed. For the price point and area, we expected more. The meals did not look like the pictures online. The food was equivalent to IHOP or Denny's.

I’m a regular at this spot. Food is always good. One of the best places to sit outside and enjoy the view of the Marina. Only complaint was this time it took a while to get the food and then when it finally came, it was cold. Cold eggs - not good.

This place has really turned around. The happy hour is amazing. Grilled cheese w jam and arugula is nothing like you've tasted before. Not your average grilled cheese but so so yummy. The spinach dip and brussel sprouts are also winners and considering 4 return guests got the fish tacos, they get a five star too!

The Mimosas are amazing. They come with four different juices.
The beachside scramble was delicious. We sat on the patio amazing view.
It was a little cold so they had a heater on.
Good place to have brunch in Marina del Rey. Only thing to make it better would be if the mimosas were bottomless.

Good food, Good drinks and amazing view.

There was a mix up at the restaurant. We booked a Thanksgiving meal through Open Table to start at 2PM. Lo and behold, no turkey or anything else thanksgiving related was being served until 4pm. This was not noted on the website, it wasn't noted when I booked through open table that they weren't serving until 4PM. So it was a pretty bad experience. It's a special day of the year, and Beachside could have made sure that everything was in order. They should have at least put on their menu that thanksgiving dinner is at 4PM. So it was pretty horrendous.

This is one of the more difficult reviews I have written because I loved the location. My husband and I were provided a table in ideal location. We had a view of the beach yet we were under a palm tree so we weren't exposed to direct sunlight. Absolutely perfect! I ordered the crab benedict and he ordered the breakfast scramble. The food did take a while to arrive but we didn't focus on it because of the beautiful view. My crab benedict was excellent unfortunately my husband's food was cold. Thinking he was exaggerating I lean over to take a small bite it wasn't even room temperature it was cold! As if someone had placed it in the refrigerator cold. We contacted the waitress who promptly took it away saying they would make a new order. Roughly 10 minutes later they came back with the same dish and you could clearly tell the food had just been reheated as the potatoes were shriveled up. The manager came over and offered to have them remake his food but by then he was too upset to eat. I left the restaurant feeling guilty because I enjoyed my meal but my husband was hungry and irritated setting the tone for what should have been an enjoyable day off. Oh I almost forgot when we went to get our car the valet tried to charge us for 3 hours as the original valet that parked our car gave us a ticket belonging to someone else. Then when it was discovered what had happened the valet pointed to our car and said its over there.

Love the remodel...........Food was great! I had a fabulous burger - but others said the Fish and Chips were great as well as the steak and eggs, and the Turkey sandwich.

Nice atmosphere inside or outside - very comfortable

Great selection of choices for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

We’ve come here for our past 2 anniversaries and have enjoyed it each time. It’s great to sit by the water without all the craziness of some other touristy areas nearby. The service was great and the food is always delicious!
