Great Food, be sure to make a reservation!

Food is consistently very good. Service is good. They have a limited number of high chairs available, so if your family needs one be sure to call and reserve one. Be sure to try one of the daily specials as they have been great every time we've tried them. If you are looking for clams be sure... read more

The meal was very good, but I was surprised there were many restrictions and extra charges for things. Such as we couldn't ask for substitutions on the menu and there was an extra charge for sharing a meal.

What else can I say? Waiter was very attentive but hostess/management/food were just average... at 4 star prices. I had a flounder roulade and my wife had chicken mascarpone. Both were underwhelming and bland. A little seasoning would go a long way.

Very friendly service! Food was good. Not crowded at all on a Monday night. Parking is in the rear. They take reservations.

We did not have reservations as we did not know we would need them but they accommodated us by seating us in the bar area which was comfortable with a pleasant atmosphere. The waiter was prompt, relaxed and on time with everything. He also was honest about the best choices for food. I ordered a steak which was cooked exactly... More

We had two fabulous meals at Beauchaines 211 during our stay in Surf City. Attentive wait staff and a great view of the Inter Coastal from the upper level. This is the best restaurant on Topsail Island.

The food is good, but not exceptional which I would expect for the prices on the menu. I am willing to pay for a top notch meal but expect the food to go with it. Our server was friendly and attentive. Two tips: Make a reservation and ask for a seat with a view of the intercoastal waterway and ask... More

I ordered the clams and they were hit HEAVY with salt, omg it was unbelievable. How did they leave the kitchen like that? We looked forward to dessert and we ordered bananas foster and... More

We have been to Beauchaines before and LOVED it. But this time we were disappointed. Our server forgot to bring our soup course. When I mentioned it, (so she would not charge us), she brought it...but we were done eating our meal. So she offered free dessert. It was only average...and seemed to be not fresh. Our main course was... More

I was in Topsail for a week of sun, fun and relaxation. After a great day at the beach we were looking for a casual yet upscale place for a good meal. Though the exterior of the building did not "speak" to us, we thought we would give this place a try. Are we ever glad we did. The place... More
