    Allen was an excellent server, Sunday evening/ night has a happy menu, which is discounted and was explained fully by our server Allen. It was a beautiful warm early spring night, there was a nice crowd and food was great!!

    Food was very good. Oysters and sushi were yummy and the server was very nice. The only disappointment was the desserts - especially the chocolate crepe as it was terrible and we barely touched it.

    Everything from sitting in the bar top area with comfortable seating and view of bar and tvs, to attentive service, to sushi specials on Weds night, made for an enjoyable evening. Tasty oysters, good and large appetizers ( clam chowder soup, edamame, goat cheese and pita app), good burger, sushi rolls. Would recommend this place, which is fun and active in the warmer months, but also a great choice on a cold winter's night.

    We had a reservation for 2030. Upon arrival we waited at door while hostess didn't acknowledge us while standing and preparing a couple to be seated. You really need to greet people as they enter. When we sat down to have a relaxing dinner, we where informed that the kitchen was closing in 5 minutes and we needed to order everything. Why allow a reservation for that time and then have kitchen close, ridiculous. We have dinner out 2 to 3 times a week, the food was good but service was not. A repeat visit will never happen for us.

    WHen its a holiday and you have one waitress for the entire restaurant your service is not that great( not her fault) the restaurant needs to staff it properly during a holiday and maybe give up some of the annoying runners that came to my table 7 times to try to take our plates that still had food on them. Had to wait 25 mins to get water. Told waitress she said so many people were complaining about that and said okay I will tell them to stop yet they did not. So finally we left, not once did the waitress say sorry I will comp you a drink for the issue. Called restaurant to complain and no return call.

    My wife and I both feel the quality of the food went down. The BBQ Swordfish was just a piece of swordfish covered with BBQ sauce and my Tuna seemed to be cooked before and reheated.

    Last night’s quality of food was less than you’d expect for the price. Our shrimp from the raw bar were not anything to write home about, and my husband’s filet mignon was undercooked. I will say the waitress was trying her best but was clearly spread way too thin. I had heard such positive things about this place so maybe it was just an off night?

    This place is fairly well hidden, so unless from the neighborhood or visiting the marina, it’s easy to miss. It deserves a miss. I checked a dozen plus other restaurants in the neighborhood for something today and nothing was available but this place was wide open all day. An ominous sign but I decided to roll the dice. I lost… The food is not bad. I would say middle of the road. The service is horrendous. I blame the back of the house where they are clearly understaffed. The wait staff are very very shorthanded also. This is not an isolated incident as I experienced the same here before. There were not many full tables outside, but the delays were embarrassing and painful. A hard pass on ever returning. Much better around, especially when this place in my experience has been consistently bad. I believe I aged two years in the time I spent waiting here with my guests.

    We often cone here, but this time I was very disappointed. I had shrimp scampi - $50/plate. It was totally tasteless. On top, there were 2 shrimps and a big lobster shell with very little meat, if any. Definitely lower standards this time !

    Beach Tavern's new ownership & chef are outstanding! The level of service is very good and the updated menu is enticing. I love everything about Beach Tavern except the acoustics for indoor dining & bar. It has always been "loud" but the addition of a DJ made it impossible to have a conversation. Don't get me wrong, I love the DJ vibe but they need to address the acoustics.

    We come twice a year and are always super excited. In the past, the beach Tavern has always had the most amazing sushi with great flavor and texture and the service has always been great. This year the sushi had no flavor, the hostess was unfriendly and the service was horrible. We just found out they gave a new owner. It’s really sad that the new owner didn’t retain the great food and service. Not sure we will return.

    Venue is on the Marina. GORGEOUS ! Food is terrific Drinks;Friend loves French Martinis. She said this was one of the best she ever had. We had the Margarita Flat Bread. - ITS TERRIFIC And- Sushi. The sushi came without the avocado we ordered, but they quickly replaced the whole order at no charge. Excellent sushi. Wife was thrilled with her pasta. One friend had linguini with clams and was VERY happy. Me and a friend had salads- eating lighter these days. Service was excellent too
