Don't go 1st Thursday of month

Our experience would have been more pleasant if I had not been the 1st Thursday of the month, which happens to be ladies night. We were 2 couples seated by a large group of loud ladies. We had to talk over them to be heard. I had ribs and mashed potatoes. Ribs were very tender. Wished I had more... read more

On a holiday weekend when you are gathered with family, you go out to be pampered and treated with good eats and atmosphere. From the pathetically slow service with three tables in the restaurant to the dinner taking two hours to land in front of us - the whole experience was horrendous. Do NOT ever order: escargot (actually served on... More

What can I say about my experience at the Beach House. The service started out quite friendly and solicitous and went downhill. There were four of us. The meals were served lukewarm. When we finally got someone to pay a bit of attention to us they took them away only to bring them back warm not hot. The seafood risotto... More

I called the restaurant and made arrangements to have a few of my friends and family meet there just for fun. They were very accommodating and the food was wonderful. This restaurant is perfect for small functions....or holiday gatherings. Very clean, the staff is friendly and the food was great.

This restaurant is not far from the beach though you can't see the beach from the restaurant but the food was definitely worth the visit

Wonderful dinner tonight. The service was great, leaving just enough time alone, but very attentive. The NY Strip was done to perfection, and the rack of lamb was the most tender I have ever had. Incredible sauce! Our waitress Natasha, was apparently new, but was a seasoned experienced waitress who really knew what she was doing!

We had the pleasure to dine here on a recent Saturday evening and with many options in the area we choose this last minute. We went with another couple and we were all very pleased with the overall dining experience; from the food, to the staff, to the atmosphere well worth visiting this hidden gem. Located in a quite neighborhood... More

I had dinner with friends a few weeks ago. The waitress was friendly enough. I ordered short ribs which were dry and tasteless. The potatoes that came with the ribs were also tasteless. The meal was very disappointing. When the waitress came to take our plates, she asked about my meal and I told her. She never asked if I... More

Love beach house. Place that's great to go to genuinely have a great meal and a great time. Live music always sparks a raucous crowd.
