Beach house offers great food, great service, and great views. It sits right on the Decatur Lake and also offers outdoor seating.

Wonderful little restaurant that sets in a cove on Lake Decatur. Wonderful food especially the pretzel chicken. I have eaten there for company parties and weddings and I have never had a bad meal. There staff is always friendly so stop by for a nice meal or have a party!!

The mini filets are amazing. Great wine selection. Never had a bad meal here. It is a bit pricey but worth it. Great dessert drinks too.

My first visit to this restaurant was enjoyable. I opted several small plates to taste the various flavors. I started with a Caprese salad that was good. The tomatoes weren't so ripe, but the cheese, pesto and basil flavored it well. I ordered the Ahi Tuna appetizer, which was good, but a bit small on the portion size. Lastly, I... More

Both of our meals were great, my husband had Sea Bass and I had a Caesar salad with grilled shrimp(next time wont order shrimp, it... More

Had a wedding rehearsal dinner and prepared meal for wedding catered by Beach House. Food was very very good. Restaurant needs to be updated new furniture, fixtures and flooring. However; it seemed a bit eclectic as it sits. Food flavor, presentation and portions were very good. We will visit again when in town for a regular sit down meal. View... More

We held a retirement party for a long-time friend and colleague at the Beach House. We reserved their private room and had a cash bar. It was the appetizers that were truly outstanding! We loved everything! Great food, good service, and a wonderful party!

They have many great things on the menu to satisfy the taste buds of just about anyone. My personal favorite is the macaroni and cheese(which can be one of your sides). The steaks are always well cooked, the Chilean sea bass is awesome, and the pretzel chicken is very good as well. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly.... More

Our party of eight arrived at 12:30 for the mother's day buffet. A buffet was the only thing that was available. We were terribly disappointed with some of the food. I will say the chicken and the turkey and bacon and scrambled eggs were fine, however nothing was very hot. Apparently Beachhouse is supposed to have wonderful macaroni and cheese.... More
