The ramp down to the entrance is a bit steep for an elderly person with a walker. Thanks to quick thinking on the part of the staff, our table was moved to the upper level so my mom didn't have to go down the stairs.

With high anticipation of dining there I was delayed joining my celebratory dinner party by circumstances beyond my control. Arriving after the kitchen's closing time and 90% of my party left, they prepared me a spectacular delicious taste sensation in their seafood paella. Impeccable service and phenomenal food, highly recommend. I wish to personally thank the Beach House for going beyond the call to adapt to my situation that night. I will return to enjoy the dining experience such a fine establishment like them delivers.

Great view and nice atmosphere. The food was fine. Well presented but staff were minimally attentive. Twice an employee came and did something at our table without speaking at all.

Lovely location. Started out minimal noise but it kept getting louder and louder...service was slow for all 4 meals, 2 came out quickly and last 2 were really slow. 2 of our meals were wonderful and 2 meals were just ok. I understand the restaurant may have changed hand. Could that have had an impact on the experience?

The food and server were excellent. There was a large party beside us when we arrived which were very loud however once they left, the noise level settled. The seafood crepes were delicious!

I had the seafood salad which comprised way too much lettuce, not enough dressing, a delicious prawn and two delicious scallops. The generous piece of salmon was dry and overcooked. My husband ordered the Cobb Salad and his complaints were similar.........too much lettuce and not enough dressing. We love the ambiance at the Beach House and will definitely book again but we will not be ordering these salads.

Our table of three arrived for an early dinner, and after asking for a table beside the window, were seated next to an extraordinary view of Cordova Bay. The wine selection by the glass was sufficient. Our meals (pizza and seafood salad) were excellent and we found our server to be very pleasant and capable. We had a great experience dining in such a beautiful setting, both indoors and out, and would definitely return to the Beach House.

We were given a fabulous window table and were able to watch the Hunter Moon rising. The server was very attentive and polite (rare these days).

Our meals were excellent and we can't wait to return. Thanks, BC

Staff were very accommodating with regard to reservations and the service was good and waitresses were very friendly. The view is exceptional - almost 180 degrees looking across to San Juan Island from James Island around to Mount Douglas Park. The food was really good, enjoyed by everyone in our group.
We look forward to returning in the future.

I ordered the cobb salad with extra salmon and unfortunately both the chicken and salmon were extremely dry and not very edible. Still enjoyed the service and ambiance.

Yes, we were a largish group, but ... the noise level made it difficult to talk to the person across the table, never mind two people down. Is there a way to fix this problem? It's not just an issue at the Beach House, but it is off-putting.

I had the seafood noodle soup and my wife had the salmon. I was not expecting the meal to be as spicey as it was although the waitress did say it could be a bit spicey. My wife enjoyed her meal very much. I will be more intune to what the waitress recommends next time. All in all a good night out.

Good food. Great service. Very accommodating of our elderly parents and their mobility aids. Only drawback was the high noise level. Had to shout to hear each other.

We are frequent visitors from Alberta, and an island vacation is never complete without a meal at The Beach House. On this vacation we were celebrating a 45th wedding anniversary with friends. The staff was so accommodating...We requested a special table✅ brought our own cake which they plated up✅ Overall 5 star experience!

There was an event going on upstairs which resulted in overly loud noises emanating from the ceiling. This was a little distracting for our dining experience. Otherwise it was really good as usual.
