Loved the vibes on your outdoor patio and we had a great view of a beautiful sunset. The food was 10/10. Disappointed you couldn’t do a frozen mudslide but your other drinks were yummy. Will definitely be back!

The outdoor seating is a must. The food did take a little while longer than expected to reach the table, but it was definitely worth it and our waitress was friendly and helpful.

We’ve dined here a few times and every other time, things were great. We arrived this time with a reservation for a High Top. If you’re booking a reservation, please know that “high top” is NOT outdoors... even though there are mostly high top tables outside. At that time, there were about 15 open outside tables. We were there early and hoped we could move outside but the host was adamant that we couldn’t. I went back on open table to confirm I could book another reservation for that time for outdoor seating but the host again said we could not do that. Our server was also confused as to why we could not take one of the many open tables and were stuck inside. She attempted to move us out since she was also serving those outside tables, but the host told HER no. Overall, the food was delicious and service from our server was great. But the hassle of dealing with the host ruined the experience. And while I understand the need to keep tables unoccupied for reservations, we sat at a window and watched as the same 6 tables (within our view) sat unoccupied the entire time we were there.. super frustrating and will absolutely impact our decision to return.

the service was good, however we were disappointed at the chopped salad we received. it seemed to be served with pancetta instead of bacon bits, and the lettuce seemed to be a bit aged, however the tuna on my salad was very good and the salmon on my wife's was equally good.

The restaurant was beautiful. Butttt the host & Wait time for already having a reservation was really bad watched a few people walk away and leave and even had to calm a Woman down in the parking lot who was upset about her dining experience on Mother’s Day! Our waitress was awesome! The food was pretty good drinks were good and the view is beautiful it’s just very unfortunate that the service was what it was.

Went in for mother’s day. A few of us got filet mignon & two jump shrimp. The mashed potatoes that came with the entree were cold. I guess part of it I can understand because it was mother’s day. Ambiance was nice. I will be back on a less busy day.

The food was outstanding. Service was very very slow. The weather was extremely poor for outdoor seating, but that is beyond anyone’s control. However the service was extremely slow and we sat outside freezing for multiple hours.

The worst dining experience of our lives. After an hour wait only one of four entrees was served. After waiting more we asked to get what hadn’t come out yet to go. The menu was limited and the manager claimed to have called people with reservations to tell them. I never received a call or a voice mail. The man flat out lied. It was cold on the deck and there were no outdoor heaters. They have outdoor heaters at sandwich shops but not at this sleazy place. The service was by far the worst we have ever received. After finally getting our entree’s in take out containers we left and ordered Chinese at home. The food was terrible. No rating at all would not do this dump justice. You can do better. Keep scrolling and find a place that values their customer.

Mother’s Day lunch
Very disappointed in quality of food,
Portion, and timing.
Chowder had a thick film on top sitting under heater.
Rice salty
Filet came with 3 barely grilled shrimp instead of 2 baked stuffed shrimp.
Swordfish chewy did not taste fresh.

Drinks only thing good.

Understandably busy for Mother’s Day, however service was horrible. No one came to greet us for about 15 min and then just one delay after another so just ended up leaving without enjoying Mother’s Day lunch with my mom and family. Disappointing..

Came for a mother day luncheon with a friend. to start off on a positive note they gave us each a rose for being mothers which I thought was a great touch! Also we each got a free champagne drink which I honestly think was better than the $50 we spent on our other drinks. We both thought our appetizers were fantastic (pictured with my review) however got the swordfish which was incredibly dry that came with two sides that were ice cold. My friend got the chicken Milanese which was also super dry. Again the drinks were awful and overall it was a very expensive disappointing experience. Needless to say we will not be going back. I’m wondering if it was awful due to the holiday maybe it would be better on a different occasion where the food was cooked to order. Also the service was horribly slow. Our reservation was at 1:45 and we didn’t get out of there till almost 4(and we took our third course desserts to go). Sad experience... two thumbs down.. at least I enjoyed my company

This was our first time dining here and we loved everything about it. The view from the outside seating is magnificent but the food is even better. The 4 of us each throughly enjoyed our meals and left completely stuffed and more than satisfied. We will definitely recommend this restaurant to others.
the staff was friednrlyand even though I totally forgot that I added a note to our reservation about celebrating a college graduation our graduate was treated to a great dessert honoring that achievement. Thank you to the staff at Beach House for remembering that.

We arrived for our reservations at 7:00 even though they were not till 7:15. They sat us outside as request and the host was great. We were seated at exactly 7:05. From 7:05-7:35 not a single person from the restaurant came over to us to take our drink order, tell us they would be with us shortly etc. After waiting for a 1/2 hour we walked out. Such a shame because we were both so excited to try this place. We heard many people during that 1/2 hour of just sitting there complaining about how bad the service was, food and how they could not get a manager to come over. I called twice on Sunday to try and speak with a manager to tell them about our experience and I sat on hold both times. Sad to say this but I don't get the impression that anyone there cares about these bad experiences.

I know it’s hard to find help but I have been to other restaurants and didn’t have bad service like here .. waited 30 minutes before someone came to our table and that was after I went to the hostess to tell her we didn’t have anyone come to our table yet the food was not very good no one in our party of 6 enjoyed there meal , probably won’t return to this place unless it’s just for apps

Our first time going even though we live in the neighborhood! We were not disappointed. They have a great beer list, awesome clam cakes and the tuna steak is amazing! It was rainy when we went but the inside is spectacularly decorated. Can’t wait to sit outside overlooking the bay next time.

We got to the restaurant and had reserved outdoor seating, we asked if we could change to the inside since it was so cold but they said we couldn’t be accommodated. We then asked for drinks and one of the drinks never came. The drinks alone took about 45 mins. They finally asked what we wanted to order after about an hour waiting and freezing and by that time we decided on appetizers only. We waited additionally about 45 mins and appetizers never came. We decided to leave and cancel the appetizers. We paid $96 for 6 drinks and noticed at least 4 other tables had left as well. The drinks were not good either.
