I know people like this restaurant. But my experience is that the place is pretentious, the service is mediocre and the food is just OK. They love hyperbole in their menu. For example, their "Jumbo Shrimp" are the size of a thumb nail. When I complained I was told it was jumbo to them! Don't waste your money. The Bistro... More

Because of a rude hostess and very poor service at another nearby restaurant, we decided to give this place a try and lucky for us. We did not have a reservation, but that was not a problem since we were seated immediately. We had a table upstairs with a great view of the inlet area. Our meal began with the... More

Beauchaines can't be beat for their food, but sometimes their service is so exasperating. And by service, I mean the people who take reservations or are supposed to listen to voicemails and call back. I called 4 days ago to find out what days they would be open next week so I could make a few reservations. No call back.... More

We have been going to Topsail every summer & somehow never heard about this restaurant until we drove by it this year. We went on Thursday night & had no reservations but we were lucky enough to get an outdoor deck table overlooking the sound & a beautiful sunset! We had the calamari fro an appetizer, delicious! For dinner I... More

My husband and I had the opportunity to enjoy a delicious meal at Beauchaines 211 this evening. When we entered the restaurant, we were warmly greeted by two lovely young ladies, Bethany and Ariel. Even though we did not have a reservation, we were offered a choice of seatings and decided on one of the "high-top" tables within the bar... More

Beautiful location/view. We enjoyed proper service, had a fabulous tuna appetizer, shrimp and grits were authentic and made with great quality ingredients, pasta dish also very good. Paired with some nice wine, this made for a great evening. We will be back!

Wife and I had amazing meal, really good, left 15% tip, good, but not great service and the server had the nerve to confront us and say we left too little. We eat here every year, always good food, but 'Patience' the waitress, needs to find a new profession.....

While on vacation at North Topsail Beach, NC, went to Beauchaines 211 for dinner. Had two wonderful appetizers - crab dip and calamari. I lived in Maryland and the crab dip was one of the best ever! Calamari had cabbage and jicama in it and was different but delicious. Everyone's entrees were great! Had a very good server who was... More

Beauchaines is one of the more expensive restaurants on the Island of Topsail. A few years ago, I stated in a review that it used to be better and after a 2 year absence, I would stand by that. The food was good but the menu seemed to be much more limited than it had been in the past. All... More
