    Ended up dining inside as there were no low top tables in the shade. Very quiet dining room but a bit warm.ordered the paella and the Peruvian chicken. Paella had lots of good sized seafood. Chicken was served with saffron rice and green beans. We also ordered 2 drinks. Service was very good. Bill was very expensive! I dined in Hawaii last summer and didn't spend as much.. Will have to save the Beach House for very special occasions.

    Absolute worst service we've had in a long time. It took over 45 minutes to receive our appetizers, the mixed drinks were made with cheap-tasting liquor, the meals took another 45 minutes to arrive after the appetizers, and the food itself was mediocre. There were no apologies or explanations from the waitress, she was inattentive. Add all this to a very loud atmosphere where talking at normal levels wasn't possible... we will not go back to this restaurant and recommend that others think twice.

    The beach house was very good. We had a drink at the bar and then ate dinner on the patio. Service was good and the portions of food were big. My mom and dad had a nice big bowl of clam chowder and split the seafood pasta special. I had the paella which had plenty of seafood, chicken, and sausage with a lot of left overs.

    Very slow service. 25 minutes for 3 clam chowders to come out. Entrees (swordfish) took another hour or so. We were told that the Kitchen had only 2 people working. Wait staff was young and inexperienced - were pleasant but not highly skilled. When the Fish did come out, it was over-cooked and dried out. On the plus side, the view is very nice but it can be had for free on the bike path just steps from the restaurant.

    Lovely place right on the water but we were very disappointed with the food. Less than average at best. The steak roll up had no taste. The salads were small. The chicken was dry. For the price we paid, we expected more for our money. However, love the spot, great view and lots of space to enjoy. Will visit again and give it another chance at some point.

    From beginning to end, a mediocre experience from what had been one of our favorite restaurants. Menu was dramatically reduced from a year ago. My wife’s salad looked like a bag of commercially chopped salad with dried and overcooked chicken Without telling us that she would the waitress disappeared for ten minutes and showed up at the end of dinner with another plate of grilled slices, and she brought me the wrong dinner. My lobster bisque was adequate with a congealed patch and my tomato and burrata salad was a pallid representation of a few baby plum tomatoes instead of the beautiful ripe heirloom tomato that it used to be served in. The final insult is when the waitress brought an electronic pad with the highly overly charged dinner with a preset tip already highlighted … kind of an impressive scan. Will not be returning.

    The views outdoor are great, as the sun sets right in front of you. The food was good, although it took a long time for it to be done. But the service was absolutely HORRIBLE. Everything that a server could and should do, wasn’t done. Not even plates and silverware for appetizers, not an introduction or a single smile. We had chase her around for basic stuff, we were never asked if we wanted another drink even though we had empty glasses before we even got our food, nothing! Definitely not a pleasant experience.

    The Beach House is becoming one of our favorite summer outdoor restaurants. We had a great table near the bike path with a great view of Bristol Harbor. The food and drinks are great. I do find the drinks pretty pricey.

    Our server, Jay, was great; friendly and attentive and we enjoyed our meals. We then went to sit at the patio bar and during the hour we were there, we did not ONCE have a bartender check on us - we had to wait for their eyes to pass in our direction to get our drink and get our check. Two interactions and one drink in an hour and if we hadn’t gotten their attention we might still be sitting there. Meanwhile they had plenty of time to chat with other people. Really rude and very disappointing.

    This is a beautiful location and everything seemed clean and fresh. The food was overpriced and only okay, nothing special …and portions were defiantly not generous. I don’t think I’d return to the beach house and would never consider it again for a special occasion. Too bad, I loved the view

    The views are great and the environment is picture perfect on a summer day. Our waitress had no personality and was not a pleasure to be waited on. They also allowed people to sit at the bar while waiting for a table and a group of 6 stood and waited by our table hanging over us since they only had two bar chairs available. The bathrooms don’t smell the cleanest either.

    We enjoyed our meal very much. Service was slow, but the restaurant was busy so it was to be expected, and the view made it a pleasant wait. I payed the bill with my card, and the server told me that the 20% tip didn't go through, so I gave her additional cash. After she left the table, I checked my account to see that the tip DID go through. When I advised the server, she asked "do you want the cash back?". When I said yes, she disappeared for a while and returned with my cash. My husband and I both found it weird and shady.
