    Food and drinks were excellent. Great views of the bay. Got the blue crab fritters, these were awesome. Also got the Nachos which were great as well. Got the NY sirloin for dinner, very good, but the mashed potatoes might be the best I've ever had at a restaurant. Only thing that was off was that our server seemed either busier or less attentive than others but not in a bad way.

    Delicious food, friendly service, beautiful ambience inside and out! I eat here all the time, it’s my #1 favorite restaurant and it’s on the water and we see gorgeous sunsets all the time. Amazing and expansive outdoor bar as well… it’s like being on vacation. Make sure to try their espresso martinis!

    Unfortunately I had to give a low feedback due to receiving our food very, very late. Fortunately, the view was spectacular and we tried to avoid the slow kitchen service while we were there.

    Unfortunately we brought friends from out of town to lunch and they were short staffed and food was very poor. We had been here many times in the past and always had a good experience but was embarrassed that our friends got a poor first impression. The Beach House is a great spot but we will be taking a break from here for a while in hopes that they can get readjusted to summer staff having left. Felt bad for the only two girls working as it was a beautiful day and quite busy and I’m sure it was quite overwhelming.

    The food was good, not great, for the price. The service definitely could have been better. We were seated for thirty minutes before drink orders were even taken. This was our second visit. I didn’t rate the first visit, but that one would have been 4 1/2 stars because service was much better that time and food was better. I ordered the salmon this time and it was over cooked and too fishy. We will be back because one meh visit doesn’t define a place. Wonderful views and lovely town on the water.

    Took my sister and Grandson here for dinner Saturday. We sat outside as the sun was setting. Beautiful! My sister and I ordered the sliced steak and gnocchi. Steak was good but the gnocchi had no flavor. There was gravy served on the side but it didn't really add enough flavor to the gnocchi. My grandson had the $38. steak and it was delicious. I have been to The Beach House before and loved it so maybe it was just what we ordered?

    We always feel like we are on vacation when we dine out at the Beach House. It's the perfect place to unwind and take in the spectacular views of the Bristol Harbor while enjoying their handcrafted appetizers and cocktails. Creative and fresh menu options with seasonal entrees cooked to perfection. The entire staff exudes impeccable hospitality as they see to your every need. The Beach house is our go to place whether it be a special occasion or just dinner for two. Definitely 5-Star Rating!

    The Beach House is a favorite of mine especially in the warmer months when you can sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view of Narragansett Bay. It was a beautiful evening and Kevin Herchen was the entertainer that night, a favorite of mine which made it even more special. The service was excellent as was our food and cocktails, couldn't have asked for a more perfect evening.

    The worst food I have ever had dining out. I requested one item to be left out of my dish. The chef could not accommodate my request. It was to leave out one seafood item. My wife ordered a salad with chicken. The chicken was so dry, she could not eat it. We did not see our waitress until it was time to receive our bill to state the quality of food. They had a nice atmosphere but I would not order any food here again - maybe cocktails.

    The view were great but you can't eat the view. We each had a bowl of chowder at $10 a bowl....maybe one clam in a very small portion. While the server was pleasant she could not answer a simple question about one of the entrees. The menu is very limited so it was difficult to find something appealing. We won't be back.

    The sangria was sub par, no fruit. The draft beer was fine. We waited over an hour to receive our meal. Two tables seated after us were served before us. My wife sent her swordfish back. It was dry and over cooked. It was served without the Thai cream sauce. When she received the replacement it was served with the sauce. I tasted this piece. It was not fresh swordfish. This meal was a disappointment. I would expect bread with an entree at a restaurant like this. Sat with our drinks for an hour. The salad was on the plate with the meal. It should have been served before the main course. I tried to make a reservation at the Boat House a week earlier however they were booked. So we tried The Beach House. It definitely is NOT the Boat House. This was our first and last time here.

    Pick this place because it had seafood and was outside by the water. I was not disappointed. The food was very good. The spices on the calamari were just right and the fish and chips were the right crisp. My only comment is that the food could have come out slightly warmer from the kitchen, but not a deal breaker, Would definitely return.

    It was our first time eating at the Beach House. A family member recommended it to us so we were exited to give it a try . My husband and daughter had the salmon and truly enjoyed it.I had the Tropical flatbread which was also delicious. We enjoyed the Steel drummer music as it takes us back to memories of Aruba. We’ll definitely be going back again to try something else
