We went to the Beach House to celebrate Father's day - Party of 6 adults. We sat on time, we had reservation. The server was extremely nice, she came and welcomed us, took our drinks order, came back with the order pretty fast and took our appetizers and dinner order. Took around 30 min for us to receive an order of calamari, was good and small. Then, it took another very long wait for us to get our dinner. The food was average. Unfortunately, nothing out of this world. Then we decided to give another shot, desert! We order and took another 30+ for us to get our desert orders and when it came it looked terrible - ice cream all melted, presentation horrible. We decided to decline the desert and just pay and leave. Maybe, was a busy day or out of luck but unfortunately, I can't recommend this place.

I made reservations for an outside table for a special Father's Day dinner. I had my anniversary dinner there and it was amazing. This time around though, the food was disgusting. Everything was either undercooked or overcooked. There was so much oil on my plate from the fish and chips. My son's crab fritters were so overdone that they were hard as a rock. My wife's salmon was dry as a bone. We spoke to a manager and he could care less. He took the food off the bill and basically said have a good day. The waiter was very polite and apologetic. I will not be visiting this place any time soon.

Beautiful location. Staff very accommodating for relocating table. Food both taste and portions great. Wine list limited but selection tasty and not too overly priced. Calamari not quite as crispy as one would expect but the tenderness outweighed the crispness. The location right overlooking the water was fantastic. Great location to enjoy a meal and beverages. Definitely a must return.

Absolutely beautiful! The views are great, the diversity and kindness of the patrons is unmatched. It is a bit pricey but worth it!!!! You will love it and I was able to make a reservation on Father’s Day for 1130 and they were able to accommodate. Try to be there earlier it’s much better for changing up seating area and obtaining patio seating under a shade.

We were there to celebrate Fathers Day
We were dining outside on their beautiful deck enjoying
The scenery and the cool breeze
The service was very good and our server was friendly
And very helpful
We all had specialty cocktails which were very tasty and definitely not made from a mix
We also enjoyed our chopped salads, and fish tacos
A great place to spend sometime in Bristol

We felt that it was too breezy to eat outside, so went inside. It was an early reservation, 4:15, so all was quiet inside and conducive to conversation. However, when others were seated, the noise level almost made conversation impossible. Also, there are some of us (seniors) who cannot retrieve the menu via smart phone. We were told that there were no paper menus printed yet, but server found one. The one 4 of us used might have been out of date because chicken milanese was listed but we were told it wasn't available -- this was 5 PM.
Our server, Angela, was excellent -- very responsive and helpful.

Very nice place to go for a quiet date night on the water. The staff was courteous, friendly, and attentive. The staff was very knowledgeable of the menu and was able to make recommendations. The food was delicious! The paella and the salmon with pineapple salsa was cooked beautifully.. The drinks were fantastic. I enjoyed the Mexican Mai Tai. I would highly recommend this restauraunt.

Atmosphere and service was 5 star. Emie was our server and she was fabulous. Food is a little pricey for portion size. However, taste of food was very good. Drinks were also delicious with just enough alcohol. A great spot for snacks or drinks, especially on a nice day. The view is better than Newport restaurants.

Was happy to get a 12:45 reservation on the patio. If you want a covered deck (bimini) outdoor reservation make sure you specify. We were below near the outdoor bar and even though it was overcast, we're sporting sunburned foreheads. Our server, Alexia, was very good and thorough. We were in no rush catching up so the pace of the serving of drinks, apps and meals was perfect. Food was delicious and a good value. The location on the water and next to the bike trail brought a fun ambiance. Big parking lot with plenty of spaces. Bathrooms were a little on the overused side but I did see a young man cleaning/mopping them as we left. I'd recommend for sure!

Great place for lunch and drinks outdoors when the weather is nice. The surf and turf burger and chicken caesar wrap were very good. The water view was nice. The electronic house music playing reminded us of beachside restaurants in Greece. All around enjoyed our first time there.

The food on this evening was very mediocre. When I checked their website there were items that we were going to order. When we arrived we used the QR code to order and more than half the items were gone. I just wanted a hamburger. On the QR they were only offing a burger with lobster on it for $32.00!!! As I don't eat seafood and I simply asked I just wanted a hamburger no seafood. The server told me NO substations and that I can order the $32.00 sandwich and just have the lobster put on the side??? This made no sense to me. I will say that they do make an awesome cocktail as it saved the evening because we were ready to head out.

My waitress made the entire experience!!! she was so down to earth and got everyone’s order right throughout the whole night. She was attentive to us and constantly made sure we had everything we needed. The food was absolutely outstanding and our drinks were the best!!!! My first time there for my birthday and it was a 10/10 experience.
