Outside is where you want to go. You have terrific vistas of the sun setting and the bay. Service is good. Drinks are good. Food is so-so. Nothing outstanding for those 3 things but the location is awesome.

So, I asked for a reservation for 7, but eventually changed it to 8!!! For 3pm.. the Host who was checking us in .. said NO, your really is for 6!! Really I had confirmation for 8..!! No big Deal but if u had my results for 6?? Why wasn’t my tablet ready? The Host made a s wait.... celebrating an Anniversary w/ family
And we’re not impressed... although are server was AMAZING!! We we not to happy!! The app for the Calamari was overly filled w: Thai sauce.. not good.. But are sever was amazing @ she tools it off our bill!!

We absolutely love coming to The Beach House. Service is amazing, food is delicious! Atmosphere is inviting. The NY sirloin was cooked to perfection. Every bite of the brown sugar glazed salmon was moist, not one dry bite. The Spanish paella.. nothing was left behind! And the Tequila seafood pasta.. wow! Can’t wait to come back!

Enjoyed lunch outside at The Beach House. Though the day was warm, there was a nice breeze. The view is of Bristol Harbor and the East Bay Bike Path goes right by the restaurant. We had Frozen Raspberry Lemonades which were very good, perfect for dining outside. We shared a delicious calamari that was basically Rhode Island style with a mildly spicy Thai salsa. Definitely would order that again. I had Fish & Chips - a large piece of fish lightly battered and tasty. My friend had the salmon which she liked a lot. Would recommend reservations, as even on a Wednesday afternoon they were somewhat busy. Had tried to go on a Sunday first but there was an hour's wait without reservations.

The food, setting, and waitstaff were all excellent. We sat out on the deck ;and the bees kept hovering around so had to continually swat them away. It was very annoying.

Always a pleasure to wine and dine at Beach House. There was live music on the patio (steel drums!) which made for a wonderful afternoon of cocktails and food. I felt like I was in the Caribbean between the sun, the water views, the potted palm trees, the packed bar, the smiles, and good food and service. Great time always!

Great spot to enjoy a waterfront lunch or dinner -- steps from the bike path. Lively bar with a nice variety of cocktails, good food and pleasant service!

The food was average and the service was sub par. Took a very long time to be seen by a waitress after being seated and 25 minutes to get our chowder. The waitress took our order, dropped off the chowder, and checked on us once after the meal was served—never asking about additional drinks. We sat for at least 15 minutes with empty plates before they were removed and the bill was presented. Not what I would expect for the price point.

Food took forever to come out. Food was undercooked. Waitress noticed and took it back. Came back over cooked. Waitress was apologetic. She said they were understaffed. Many didn’t show up to work.

I love this restaurant. Very good food, amazing location, attentive service, reasonable pricing. It’s so fun to bring your dog, too. But when you sit on the lower deck, you just absolutely bake in the sun. It is very hot and unpleasant, even with the breeze off the water. The addition of umbrellas would make this place a 10/10!

The food is consistently good here. I got Peruvian chicken - delicious. My husband got the salmon and that was excellent too. Server was attentive. Only criticism is that it look 10 min or more for drinks to come and they were more water than anything (coming from someone who can usually taste even a bit of alcohol). I think beer and wine is a safer bet as the drinks were sitting for sometime before they got to us or the bartender needs training. That was not worth the money or calories!

LOVE The Beach House! Food and drinks are excellent. It was quite busy when we were there so had to wait a bit for our drinks, but the server was so friendly! We sat out on the patio and it was a gorgeous night! Really perfect evening, all around!

The location is fantastic. We had a perfect view of a beautiful sunset. The food was good but the drinks were better. We had a very nice server, but she was overworked (not her fault). She had been working since 10:00 am and we were there for dinner. She was extremely pleasant and fun. Like most restaurants, they seemed to be understaffed so it took a very long time for the server to check on us once we had been served. Our drinks were empty for quite a long time before she came back to ask if we wanted another round (which we did...since the drinks were very good).
