Beaches is locally owned and involved in community activities. Its view of the river makes it a popular gathering.Its NOT for families or residents looking for fast food or burgers and fries. Its extensive wine, meal menus do cater to virtually all tastes.

Riverside views dominate the inside of this lively neighbourhood restaurant in a residential complex just off I5. Staff were exceptionally friendly with swift service. It's the first restaurant in America where I've signed the waitresses' visitor book and got free popcorn to take away ! Tasty food , good portions. But could have been warmer - I suspect it had...

Beaches has the best or nearly the best Happy Hour menu. It is good for pricing and quality and is consistently community rated with high marks. THE ONLY DOWN SIDE is sometimes you may have to wait up to 30 mins for a table. One section is Happy Hours and will accommodate children, It isn't large. maybe 5 tables but... More

Great food and service. Fabulous view, especially outside if you're lucky enough to get a seat. Only downside is the noise, especially in the bar area. Problem solved....sit outside.

I like beaches for its delicious variety, lovely view of the Columbia River and the exceptional service. On nice days when you can dine outside along the river it's a perfect Northwest experience. A real gem for Vancouver.

My husband & I spent.a lovely early spring Sunday lunch at Beaches on the Columbia. When the weather is nice, there is nothing better than sitting on the patio watching the sailboats & the people. Beaches has such friendly wait staff also.

mmm Been to both locations. This is a nice restaurant However, Service needs help. we went for a Birthday and only felt rushed and not very beachy.. The Turn over is FAST and the Service is less than special. The view is Awesome and perhaps outdoor seating is better we sat near the window inside and it was very chaotic... More

We took our visiting relatives to Beaches, we had never been there before. There was no waiting (we did have reservations), we requested to sit outside with no issues, we watched the sail boats on the deck while waiting for our food. The serving staff was wonderful and attentive, food was great, desserts were fabulous (we all got something different... More

My family were supposed to just hang out and take photos by the Columbia River until we decided to find a place where we can have dinner. We found this place. At first we're thinking about leaving because there were a lot of people on the list waiting for their table. But we stayed until they called our names. Ordered... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat now. Great clam chowder, beaches salad is yummy, and a wonderful view of the river and Oregon.
