This would be a five-star review if brunch was available, particularly on Sundays. And blaming its absence on COVID is getting a bit tired.

We brought a visitor from Switzerland with and we had the loveliest meal we've had since she's been in Victoria. The food was delicious and the service was awesome. We were tucked away in a corner and we had a beautiful view of the water. It was quite stormy and dramatic and there were few people on the beach. All in all, a great experience.

The location is very nice although the upper level is better . The service was good and punctual . The food is ok but not memorable. Complimentary bread would have been a nice touch . Wine glasses were both water stained.

Lovely afternoon lunch with window view.
The lamb shank was perfection and so was the calamari and ribs.
Love this place. Service was really good even though most places short staffed.
Highly recommend

We will definitely be coming back food was fabulous and service was excellent. Split the cob salad and halibut fish and chips-could’ve fed three of us easily. Will also highly recommend to friends.

Lovely dinner. Attentive server and hostess. Good food. Varied menu.

However, the restaurant was running out of desserts as we were ordering our meal at 6:45. This should not happen. We had to order our dessert when we ordered our meal.

Would definitely come back.

We have been going to the Beach House for a long time (and when it was McMorran’s) and love it a lot. Many happy family occasions have been held there - including last night’s when we went to celebrate our son’s new job and move to Toronto. But oh my gosh, the prices have really gone up. We know that with the pandemic this has happened and that finding staff has also been an issue across the industry. But our moderate dinner for 3 was $175 with an 18% tip. As lovely as it was, we feel that is a little on the pricey side for us for dining at our local restaurant. Anyhow, we love it there, but we’ll just have to adjust and go a little less often! Thanks for the lovely meal - also, your wine list is really great.

The Beach House is always a great experience: from the service, to the amazing food, to the unbeatable beautiful view; it's a special treat every time.
Their food is a good value too, it's decadent and beautifully presented, but not terribly expensive. For perspective, at any given restaurant (not high end, your everyday place) I like to order a salad and add a protein, and it usually costs about 18 or so dollars. At the Beach House, a big, fresh green salad with a generous portion of salmon, prawns, and scallops costs $22, yet the quality is head and shoulders above anywhere else. The kid's menu is the same, lovely food but costs what you'd find at any other restaurant.
I would recommend this restaurant for a date night, birthday--any special occasion. I'd recommend it for a family meal too.
Plenty of window seating to enjoy the ocean view and a lovely outdoor patio too. Inside there's a good sized bar. It can get busy so reservations are a must.

I ordered the cobb salad and I feel a creamy dressing is a better pairing. Also the piece of chicken on top was really cold, I think it would have been better slightly warmed up. Otherwise all was great.

Our food was very good and service was top shelf! The ambiance is typically really good but this visit the patio was cupped by three separate coupes with poorly behaved dogs! I like dogs but I don’t want them beside me barking, running and peeing on the patio! Maybe put those with pets on the grass above instead of down below!

A very nice evening out for dinner. The food was very good, served at a comfortable pace by an excellent server. We had a window table (which I would highly recommend).
Good value for the dollars. I’ll be back!
