The food was amazing. I’m still thinking about the oysters and my squid ink pasta meal. Service was fantastic and everyone was well spread apart. We were very comfortable dining there.

A good friend and I had a terrific early supper of mussels, salad and steak last Friday evening. The service was great; friendly and relaxed, plenty of wine choices and good recommendations. the courses arrived timely, and well spaced, and provided the best meal I had had in ages - well worth a visit!

Lobster roll was delicious but presented on a hotdog bun. For the price, some fresh made bread would have been better. Good rock shrimp. Friendly staff.

Thanks for your review, we use potato bun for the lobster roll, taste totally different of the regular hot dog bun, we can provide you any kind bun you wish next time when you are here, then you can compare which bun is the best for the lobster roll.

Expected it to be nicer inside. Not a bad place, nice bar and it captures the beachy vibe. But overpriced for what it is

Dinner Saturday was top of the line, other than having to eat on the sidewalk. Seafood salad was excellent and all seafood. Service was excellent. Main course of fish & chips were both tasty and large portions.

The food is good at the Beach House but we were not happy with the spacing of the indoor tables. Definitely not 6 feet apart. Hope they fix this in the future as we don't want to worry about coronavirus while having dinner.

Went here for my birthday dinner with my boyfriend. Food was amazing! They have a very nice selection of seafood, and a large list of specials. Due to COVID-19 the outdoor seating was on the side walk, the staff did their very best considering the circumstances. The inside looks amazing and will probably be a better experience when we are able to eat inside next time. Waiter and hostess were very nice and accommodating. Definitely recommend!

Very pretty. But food and service were excellent t and we would definitely go back.

They added an extra $10 to their tip on my credit card. I had already tipped 20%. Also the tables are all within 1 foot of each other. No social distancing

First time I dining here. There was a little bit of a mix-up about our reservations because of the limited outdoor seating due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, the staff quickly accommodated us and they were very attentive. The food and service was exceptional. I'm normally not in this area, but I plan to go back to dine again when its business as usual.

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! :)
