It would be incredibly generous to call the service slow or inattentive. More accurate adjectives would be comatose, absent, or neglectful. I'll never eat here again.

Made a last-minute reservation for a Saturday night (early), and the hostess read and honored a request for a slightly out-of-the-way and cozy booth for 2, so that my partner and I could enjoy conversation and each other's company for a reunion date night. We were greeted warmly by everyone; the servers were all efficient, pleasant--including the runner, who had a great sense of humor. The atmosphere was comfortable, relaxed and bright, but of course what counts most is the food. We ordered from the regular menu and also some specials: mushroom flatbread, grilled octopus, lobster roll, and a salad; pistachio cheesecake and chocolate lava cake for dessert. All the starters and mains were delicious, and it's easy to find something for every taste/mood on the menu. The desserts were hit-and-miss, only because we found the lava cake didn't meet expectations (usually that suggests a cake that's fudgy and oozing with molten chocolate; this was not that, but rather too "cake-y"/overcooked for what the texture should be like for this type of cake)... but chocolate is still chocolate, so we ate it happily anyway. In all, a fabulous experience, and we'll definitely return. Thanks, Beach House Cafe! :)

The Beach House Cafe was a great experience. The food was excellent and value was great. The service left a little to be desired. The service was slow and wait staff could have been more attentive. I will give them some credit as it was Valantine's Day but the restaurant didn't seem to be overly book to warrant the slow service. I would definitely return and recommend the restaurant.

The atmosphere and food was great. The service at the bar and tables were not great. Had to wait long to be greeted at the bar and the table when we were seated.

We made a reservation spur of the moment and were accommodated even when we added 2 more people once we were seated. Drinks came slowly but entree’s arrived a few minutes after drinks but we were hungry and ended happy.

We had a wonderful dinner at Beach House this past Saturday night. The wait staff was very friendly, attentive and accommodating as was the hostess. Our food was delicious and properly prepared. The Crispy Rice Tuna appetizer was delicious as were the Mussels which were amongst the best I’ve ever had. All of our entrees were equally delicious from the Linguine with Shrimp in a light Alfredo sauce to the Pork Chops which were moist and flavorful to the Salmon which was also cooked to perfection. The ambiance is friendly and comfortable and the price seemed right for the meal. I highly recommend it.

They have a new manager now, Olger. He is very friendly, provides excellent service, and obviously has improved the overall service from the employees through his managerial skills. They should have hired him a long time ago, but we’re just happy he is there now.

One of my local places. Always a great meal. Menu covers fish/chicken/steak/burgers. Nice choice to choose from. Specials are always a great selection. Squid ink pasta with seafood is one of my favorites.

Have been here many times, and lately, each time is a little worse. This time, appetizers (sticky rice) was burnt, and dinner salads (Caesar & Arugula) had wilted greens, bruised fruit, and such little greens it would hardly be considered a side salad anywhere else. Too bad the manager was not on duty to accept the feedback (or adjust the bill). It was just awful.

They refuse to put on air conditioning in the summer, instead leave the doors open. Last Monday, it was raining all day, 84 degrees and 100% humidity. I asked if they'd please turn on air conditioning, they refused. So, we had not choice but to leave. It was disgusting in there and I can only imagine how bad that is for food to be cooked and served in such heat/humidity. On a beautiful day, it is nice to have open doors, not in the dead of an extra-ordinarily hot summer and in the humid rain.

I love their Sunday brunches. The problem is they keep the front and French doors open and so there is no air conditioning. It is way, way too hot to sit inside without A/C and enjoy a meal. I have asked them to please shut doors and put on A/C, but they won't do it. This place is not good for summer due to heat. The other seasons of the year it is very comfortable.

What caught my eyes was the name. So I drove 45min from NY and it was worth it. From the beachy decor, the service and the food. I had the salmon wrap and it was DELICIOUS. I fell in love with the flavor on the 1st bite. My mom had the crispy chicken sandwich and it was so good she wanted to order one to go. The service was excellent. Polite and fast. I will be returning.

Nice restaurant. Disappointed with a name like Beach House there was no water view. Food was good, but a little on the expensive side. If in the area, I would go back again.

The pictures make this place look way nicer than it is and the overall experience was just so-so. We were first seated at a table by the door which was not good. When I asked for a booth I was told there were none and we were taken to the back room. What’s the point of making a reservation if you’re not going to save a nice table for that guest?? The octopus appetizer was not good-it was quite fishy and I’ve never had octopus taste fishy. The only saving grace was the salmon entree that I ordered which was excellent!! That is the only reason this place got any stars. Plenty of other places around. Check those out first.

The food was awful. Worst meal I’ve ever had. The lobster roll has barely any lobster and the fries that came with it were reheated McDonald’s French fries. Flies were all over and there was a spider crawling on the table. I would not recommend this to anyone!

Good food, great service but boy, does it need freshening up! We hadn’t been there in awhile and it looks tired: chipped paint, handprints on doors, cracked granite in the bathroom. A fresh coat of white paint would do wonders. Our server was outstanding and the food was good but I’ll wait to go back and hope they put a little money into the interior.

My whole family loves this place! Everyone has dietary restrictions/ some picky eaters and they are so accommodating. Also, every item on the menu is amazing! We have all of our family events at this restaurant. Also we are obsessed with their dessert menu!!! Service is also always amazing. There is always someone available to assist. Service is also super fast! You never wait more than 15 minutes for your food.
