What do I say... Good, maybe! Great, not so much! Not bad...?

My wife and I arrived early in the dinner hour and there was chaotic activity in the bar and gaggles of people hoping for a seat in the jam packed "happy hour" area... oh, oh... possibly not a good choice for a pleasant relaxing dinner with my beautiful wife!

This restaurant was just steps away from our hotel (Homewood Suites by Hilton) and overlooks the Columbia River. We had a pleasant dining experience in this restaurant with a casual beach/surfer vibe: the food was good (there is an eclectic menu which offers a mix of American standbys like ribs, Pacific Rim options, and a variety of soups, salads, pizzas...

Beaches is a favorite restaurant, rain or shine. Right on the Columbia River, the views are great on sunny days and rainy days. Kid-friendly treasure chest and ice cream treats, great staff are friendly and fun, and the food is good! Relax and enjoy! Happy hour gets pretty loud and rowdy. Seating outside is a bonus!

There is a great variety of dishes and the service is good. The staff is friendly and they make sure you get the best service. Happy hour is very popular and the food choices are good. They have beer and amid drink special.

Went on friends advice. Glad I did...Sat at the bar on a beautiful evening. Made some new friends. Staff was super friendly and efficient. Good beer choices and food was also very good. Located right on the water, great views of the river on the deck.

Went because of the high ratings. Obviously the ratings are not for the food. We went awhile ago and I posted a review which seems to have disappeared. It must have been contested and taken off. We ordered a crab dip appetizer. It was half as much as you would get at outback, or red lobster. The dinner was so... More

Every employee greeted us when we arrived. We thought wow! Then our service went down from there. Appetizer plates not removed, ice tea not refilled, we did not see our server after she took our order until she dropped the check and brought us this funky book to write in. The food was below our expectations and just so so.... More

Beaches is a great restaurant for everyone and is very family friendly. The food is okay; the atmosphere is fun and friendly. The noise level is high however so this is not a good place to come for serious conversation...just come for fun. The patio overlooks the Columbia River which is beautiful any time of the year.
