We felt that it was too breezy to eat outside, so went inside. It was an early reservation, 4:15, so all was quiet inside and conducive to conversation. However, when others were seated, the noise level almost made conversation impossible. Also, there are some of us (seniors) who cannot retrieve the menu via smart phone. We were told that there were no paper menus printed yet, but server found one. The one 4 of us used might have been out of date because chicken milanese was listed but we were told it wasn't available -- this was 5 PM.
Our server, Angela, was excellent -- very responsive and helpful.

Very nice place to go for a quiet date night on the water. The staff was courteous, friendly, and attentive. The staff was very knowledgeable of the menu and was able to make recommendations. The food was delicious! The paella and the salmon with pineapple salsa was cooked beautifully.. The drinks were fantastic. I enjoyed the Mexican Mai Tai. I would highly recommend this restauraunt.

Atmosphere and service was 5 star. Emie was our server and she was fabulous. Food is a little pricey for portion size. However, taste of food was very good. Drinks were also delicious with just enough alcohol. A great spot for snacks or drinks, especially on a nice day. The view is better than Newport restaurants.

Was happy to get a 12:45 reservation on the patio. If you want a covered deck (bimini) outdoor reservation make sure you specify. We were below near the outdoor bar and even though it was overcast, we're sporting sunburned foreheads. Our server, Alexia, was very good and thorough. We were in no rush catching up so the pace of the serving of drinks, apps and meals was perfect. Food was delicious and a good value. The location on the water and next to the bike trail brought a fun ambiance. Big parking lot with plenty of spaces. Bathrooms were a little on the overused side but I did see a young man cleaning/mopping them as we left. I'd recommend for sure!

Great place for lunch and drinks outdoors when the weather is nice. The surf and turf burger and chicken caesar wrap were very good. The water view was nice. The electronic house music playing reminded us of beachside restaurants in Greece. All around enjoyed our first time there.

Both the food and the service were great. I recommend the classic Ceasar with tuna. The tuna melts in your mouth. Make reservations or you will wait a long time for a table on the weekend. LOVE this place!

The food on this evening was very mediocre. When I checked their website there were items that we were going to order. When we arrived we used the QR code to order and more than half the items were gone. I just wanted a hamburger. On the QR they were only offing a burger with lobster on it for $32.00!!! As I don't eat seafood and I simply asked I just wanted a hamburger no seafood. The server told me NO substations and that I can order the $32.00 sandwich and just have the lobster put on the side??? This made no sense to me. I will say that they do make an awesome cocktail as it saved the evening because we were ready to head out.

My waitress made the entire experience!!! she was so down to earth and got everyone’s order right throughout the whole night. She was attentive to us and constantly made sure we had everything we needed. The food was absolutely outstanding and our drinks were the best!!!! My first time there for my birthday and it was a 10/10 experience.

Not a great experience. Our burgers were completely charred, the food took a long time to come out, the bathroom stall I used had no toilet paper and a clogged sink. They had just opened for Memorial Day and we were the first guests to arrive. Seemed like very odd problems to have at that time.

The inside dining area was busy and loud in a cold rainy night, making conversation difficult. But good vibes with the Bruins game on, and we were served quickly. Decent beer selection. The chowder and tuna poke apps were both excellent. The salmon on my chopped salad was overcooked, possibly because a friend at my table ordered theirs well done, and the salad itself was very good but not what I’d call a “chopped” salad. Nice big piece of fish comes with the fish and chips. Our waiter Myles was super, and we will definitely return on a warmer day to experience the outside dining.

This was our first night out dining with the newly lifted pandemic protocols. The staff were courtesy, professional and diligent. Reservations were easy, but mostly knowing how challenging it has been for companies to find help, we were very pleased with the staff at the Beach House. Food was great. It was a rainy night but you still cannot beat the view of the harbor even in the rain. Great night. Highly recommend. Nice outdoor dining area - when not raining.
