Booking online was simple and quick.
On arrival greeting and escort to table was friendly and considerate of my deafness.
Service was unobtrusive and good.
My friend had spaghetti with prawns and was happy with his dish.
I had chicken and vegetables, the vegetables were delicious, the breast could have been sliced - it was too large and solid.

Have visited this venue a handful of times, always had a great experience, this occasion though, albeit in COVID restricted times felt very unwelcome, almost like they didn’t want to be open. Hoping it’s only a once off because normally a great restaurant.

Warm and friendly. Service was done with a smile although we could see our waiter was pretty new at the game.
It has been some time since i’d dined at Beachouse and my expectations were not high but the food was beautifully presented, interesting and tssty
I'll now happily return.

Garlic/cheese bread was the highlight of the meal. Curry was a stew at best. Very bland and not worth anywhere near the money.
I asked for a wine list and was then asked what wine did I want and told what was available. Very strange I could not be given a wine list, I like to know where each wine is from.
We got there early and had a drink. This meant that when our table was ready we felt forgotten.
We keep going back because we want to love it but are continually disappointed with the food. I doubt we will try again...

As regular diners here, we were a bit disappointed this week. The eye fillet was still lovely but the very high price did not really cover the other basics on the plate. My other family had the curry which unfortunately they found underwhelming in size and flavour. We also fount the new menu a bit lacking compared to normal. After years of great meals here it may be time to try a couple of other venues for a change.

This is my 2nd visit to Beach House and it did not disappoint. My barramundi was cooked to perfection & the lamb literally fell off the bone. I could not fault the service - friendly but unobtrusive. Loved it

Sadly our order was misunderstood by our waitress and the mains came at the same time as the shared entrees. When we placed the order with her I specifically said that we were all sharing entrees and only the boys wud have mains. When we sent the mains back unfortunately she got rather snooty with us and for the rest of the night she pretty much ignored us. Things like not getting a drink and no attention was obvious. I get that it’s tough this time of the year but we are
Locals and we are what keeps these places going outside of the main seasons. It will be a while coming back sadly.

Four of us shared appetisers which were really good. Service was good. Wine was lovely. A much better experience than in December when a drunk guy was rolling on the floor and continued to disrupt the atmosphere for the whole dinner. Much better responsible service of alcohol this time.

While the food is good unfortunately the customer service is lacking.
Lots of young wait staff (we counted 7) that have no idea about the hospitality industry and consequently lacking in skills when it comes to giving paying customers a reasonable level of service & attention. Maybe they are all on Jobkeeper so don't really care??
