We had a window view of the river on a Friday night. Had made reservations, but arrived early, and they seated us in the bar, offered that table so we wouldn't have to move. Our table was soon ready . We had a great server, food & drinks were good. Nice experience.

We had a table outdoors overlooking the Columbia River on a warm summer evening...perfect setting. All servers were pleasantly friendly and helpful, and the food very yummy. We started by splitting a salad which came served on 2 plates with no extra charge. I'm vegetarian, the staff/kitchen accomodated my special request for dinner, my husband loved his macadamia crusted tuna,... More

We tried out Beaches recently on a lovely summer day in Vancouver and were pleasantly surprised. We had expected typical, touristy food and instead received two entrees and a dessert worth remembering! Mine was the Land & Sea Bouillabaisse ($14.95) and was spiced with a fine sausage, as well as cod, clams, salmon and more. I loved it and brought... More

The food at Beaches is always good and there is a wide variety of choices. I had a soup and salad combination and the chicken tortilla was really good, although a bit salty. The salad was sufficient but could have been a bit more "meaty." My companion had the special, which was the beef special. She said it was very... More

The food is decent, the prices are good, and the atmosphere is fun and relaxed. I was in Portland for work and while there are tons of places in Portland my budget was limited and this appealed to everyone's taste buds.

This seems to me like the place that locals in Vancouver go to celebrate their family birthdays. The place is very loud and a bit crowded for my tastes. Service was slow and inattentive the night we went. The food is average and for the price it is really an average value. The one thing this place has going for... More

I visited this restaurant because it was recomended by the guy at the front desk in my hotel. Menu is assorted and with good portions, I was seated almost inmediately and I have to say the staff was kind and helpful. good thing about the place is that they have big tables, good if you are visiting with large groups....

Arrived famished after two flights with minimal food. Beaches hit the spot. Calamari was juicy and tasty. Tuscan pizza was delicious. Mac and Jack's African Ale, Fish and chips. All better than we were expecting. Attentive service. Great view over the river.

Tuesday my friend called me to ask me if I wanted to have lunch with she and her grandson. It was short notice, but I was able to get a reservation around the time I wanted. When we arrived our requested table was ready and wafting. No hassles whatsoever. The manager, Brian, is to be complimented for his EXCELLENT service... More

Service was excellent as we enjoyed lunch here overlooking the Columbia River and Portland Airport. The spinach and kale salad was fabulous and I enjoyed the very rich crab and artichoke melt while hubby had a good burger. Killer fries were a hit. I'd recommend this place for others - it's a fun, casual spot for lunch or dinner.
