“Wonderful experience and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I lived in the black forest of Germany for 10 years...I have eaten schnitzel all around the world..and the jaegar schnitzel at the beach house café was right on par. We have eaten there many times now and have no complaints. It is one of the best restaurants in Qualicum Beach and we have eaten at all local restaurants. First rate restaurant!!!

thank you Beach House Café for making our evenings enjoyable

“Nice bright little restaurant on the waterfront.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Nice bright little restaurant on waterfront. The food is good but I can't say any meals have been the best I have had. It was very humid in there one day in the summer which made it somewhat uncomfortable. I prefer the Shady Rest further up the hwy and Deez Bar & Grill even further.

“Wonderful views...food not so much.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Don't expect too much in the food dept and you'll be good to go. Four of us dined here for dinner and found the food to be lacking any quality. Everything was over sauced and rather bland. However, the view from the patio is exceptional! Perhaps the lunch menu is better. This would be a perfect place just to sit and have coffee and desert, or a glass of wine.

“SAD SHACK BY THE SEA!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

The food is NOT the greatest in the world, but I never have had a bad meal there yet… THE SORRY STATE OF AFFAIRS IS THE CONDITION OF THE RESTAURANT.

Let's face it, it is old, cold and full of mould. This place, is a tired old shack waiting for a tsunami
to send it on its way. I don't know why or how health inspectors or city code, bylaw officers allow
such a run down place to keep their license. Having worked in the food industry I know that one does need to keep up, and maintain decor, substructure in order. Hopefully one day the owner
will wake up and reinvest in his/her establishment or they will loose it by getting sued.

“Don't bother”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

Can't say much good about our experience. Dropped in one evening, and we're told that they were closing in 5 minutes. Came in next day for a burger and a beer. Only good thing was cold beer. Burger bun stale and burnt. Burger bland. If you can't pull off a simple burger, I won't try anything else. Great location, but it needs new owners, a new chef and a complete decor overhaul! Sad to see a place on the ocean just "phoning it in."
