So....This was the last restaurant in Pacific City for us to try.....( we live just down the street )
and first off I was taken off guard with the reminder call and the statement related to 2 hrs of Table time.
shocking policy and as a mature man that has eaten all over the world I have never been told that in any situation. The place was 1/3 full at 6:30 and never got much busier...Let's talk food....Milk Rolls were good but not " the best Bread you will ever have" Bibb Salad was outstanding and will order it again...all the fish dishes were tasty and plated just right.....The filet was over cooked (Asked for medium rare) but I can't find it in my DNA to send a 53.00 steak back...I made the best of the situation since we had guests.
lastly I thought the wine list was quite good....but stopped short of a second bottle due to the table time
restriction. ...The signature dessert was ok.....not horrible but not outstanding....All in all glad we could mark it off the list...But it's not on our let's hurry back list

Great location and view. We had a wonderful server with great service.
Food was good. Their rotisserie chicken is excellent, ours was a little undercooked.
Can be expensive with all the add ons.

Service from kitchen very slow. 30 mins after ordering manager arrived to apologize and inform us food was being plated now. 15 minutes later, had to track down the manager to find our food. She found it immediately and three of the four entrees were cold. (All except the pizza). Manager came back later and comped the entire meal. This was not the first time service has been an issue. Too bad, cuz the food is good and location is also good.

Went here for brunch with my folks. Beautiful view, great menu selections. The kitchen, however, needs work to earn 5 stars. Meals took a while, and when they did arrive, they were at a 75%. Otherwise, I found it to be a lovely experience.

I was extremely disappointed for a birthday dinner. False advertisement. DO NOT choose to dine on the patio that has NO VIEW. The food was subpar, and the service was horrible. I would NOT recommend this place.

Horrible hostess experience! I can’t review the food because we walked out without being seated. After arriving on time for a reservation for two we were greeted by a grim-faced hostess who showed us to an inside table, despite our previously being confirmed for outside seating. After we corrected her re: seating area, our hostess escorted us outside and offered us a choice of two tables, with the better one still needing to be cleared, which we quickly accepted. Telling us that we could not stand outside while the table was cleared, our hostess ushered us back inside, asking us to wait. After 10 minutes of awkwardly standing at the entrance watching 5-6 other parties get seated, I ducked outside to check on our table, only to find another party seated there, laughing and toasting! Shocked, I returned to the entrance to confront our hostess, who simply shrugged her shoulders and said, “I’m very sorry but we had some VIP customers show up at the last minute, so I had to give that table to them.” At that point we decided to leave, knowing that we could not enjoy at meal there after being treated so shabbily. And this sequence of events is even more unbelievable given that someone from the restaurant had called me 2 days prior to make sure that our “dining experience was going to exceed our expectations.” Yes indeed, certain expectations were blown out of the water. Stay away!

Restaurant had a great ambience and the menu was creative with many choices. Food was excellent and our waiter - David I think - was attentive and helpful with food choices. We will be back!

Wait staff was friendly but nonexistent and took forever to get drinks and even order food. After ordering, finally got it an hour later. With a child at our table and ordering their food first, it took a while to arrive and then it was cold. The cheese wasn’t melted on the burger so it had been sitting waiting to be picked up. When another staff member came to refill water, we asked her to check on our food. A min later she arrived with our food when our server came by surprised our food was ready. Spoke to manager after server forgot to check to see if all food delivered and had to remind her of the clams we ordered. They were never put in to the kitchen so we had to wait again. Manager said aged comp us on drinks and clams but clams weren’t even done by the menu description. Major fail by the restaurant. Had to find someone to ask for the bill and then pay in timely fashion. It was a 2 hour disappointing lunch. Will not return despite the managers efforts. I don’t believe the cause of our experience was short staffing.

Almost everything was exceptional. My sole issue was the temperature—it was uncomfortably chilly inside the restaurant, which detracted from my ability to fully enjoy the evening. But the food and service were really, really great and I would brave the cold to eat there again.

We love BG. Great location and view of ocean across the street. Ask for "Window" seat (be aware at dinner that you'll get the sun shining through window; although they do have shades). Food menu is good. The "seafood" dishes are awesome (I got the seafood pot). For the ladies who don't eat much, recommend the "sides" which are delicious. "Beer" selection is limited but good. Definitely a great place to meet friends and family. Open window kitchen is great to watch them prepare the meals. Menu prices are higher than other eateries at Pacific City (but more or less worth it)

Food was excellent. Server was excellent. Our out of town guests were very impressed with the view. But the sound insulation is terrible so be prepared to shout. Prices are high but not when you consider that most plates are big enough for sharing.
