Love the food, atmosphere, and staff

This place is fun, comfortable, and the food is great. I ordered the crab melt and it was fantastic. It was great to put my words in their personalized books. Amazing view of the Columbia River and even an access to the board walk. A must visit!!!!

Beaches has a great location located on the Columbia River. It has really good food and a very fun atmosphere. It is extremely popular so be prepared to wait during busy hours unless you have a reservation. One of my favorite perks of dining at Beaches is that they will add something fun to their daily menu sheets just for... More

We went to beaches for lunch and decided to get some appetizers and had the Thai Sesame Pork and the Korean Teriyaki Tidbits and they were very tasty. The portions were good and the price reasonable. The views of the Columbia River are great because you are sitting along side the river. This is a terrific place that you will... More

We sat outside by the water which was beautiful. Food was good. (Fish tacos) I liked what I ordered the time before better though. (Salad 1/2 sandwich ). Waitress was friendly. They gave us carmel popcorn as a gift for anniversary. Desert was just ok. (Smores brownies) tasted a little too burnt. All in all a great place would go... More

Lovely view of the Columbia River. Nosey at happy hour but service is usually good. Food is okay, not outstanding. During the summer there are usually sail boats on the river that are pleasant to watch and around the holidays, decorated Christmas boats float by on scheduled nights.

Had an enjoyable dinner here. Very good drinks, salad, and the fish and chips. The menu looked interesting with lots of options to explore. The atmosphere appears to be one of fun and energy. It was busy, anticipate a wait at least on nice weekend days. Nice walking path along river for an after-dinner stroll. The service was on the... More

This is an amazing setting perched above the Columbia River. They have a great happy hour, but note that you can't get that deal on the deck. The first time we went there, we didn't know, we sat on the patio because we wanted to take advantage of the beautiful setting and I was frankly a little ticked that we... More

A short drive from the marina outside Portland, Beaches is a fun environment with very good food at good prices. The crab & lobster appetizer seems to be their big hit, and I had it as a main course; I would order it again. Everyone seemed satisfied. If it is a cool evening, and you cannot resist sitting on the... More

Kim was an excellent server. This restaurant isn't for people who like to wait, but trust me, if you wait to be outside, IT IS WORTH IT! I loved the view, I liked the music, and the food was great. I never had lobster or crab cakes before, and they made it a great experience for me.
