“Food is great. Managment has a problem.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We took some friends with a one and a half year old boy with us to West Beach Grille. The food is always really good there and we wanted to take them. We ordered a slider for the little boy since a tiny hamburger is about his size and he will really only pick at the bread. A slidder is 99 cents. When they brought him his slidder they served it on a frisbee. He, of course, was thrilled. When the ticket came we were charged $7.99 because with the frisbee this was now considered a child's plate. But, we said, we didn't order it. We just ordered the slidder and you brought the rest! THEN the manager came over and took the frisbee away from the now screaming child. How stupid was this. Or maybe not. I imagine most parents will pay the money just to keep the child quite. While the food is good, don't take a child there. Something smells fishy in Denmark with the "sell" of frisbees by the manager. We won't go back....good food or not. Was a very bad scene.

Winter specials are great! Good food and atmosphere with good bar selections! One of our local favorites when we are not craving seafood

“Nice Bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

This is a nice bar hampered by the fact it not only does not face the beach it is not close enough to see it. The food is typical bar food, the porch is huge and nice to sit on, but this place is not big enough for a sports bar, small enough for a date bar and just seems a bit sterile.

“Awesome bloody Mary's on Sunday morning and great bartender!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We were in GS/OBA for the weekend and ran across West Beach Grille - the Bloody Mary's were great! The food was good and the Bartender/Owner, Josh, was AWESOME! He gave us some great local info and helped us out a lot! There were quite a lot of locals there and it was fun to just sit and talk to the locals! Thanks West Beach! We'll be back!

“breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

I can't comment on other meals, but the breakfast was average. The bacon was not hot or crispy. The eggs were ok, the rye toast was gross and there was something wrong with the syrup for the pancakes. The service however, was pleasant and quick. Might try the grille again for a different meal.
