“The best fries!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

I had fish and chips for lunch and then a buffalo chicken wrap for supper. Both came with fries. The best fries ever. Light, not greasy, just enough salt and nice and crispy. For lunch we ate up on the roof and there was a fantastic view. We went back on the same day for supper and it was nuts upstairs. Really too crowed with drinking kids. We ate one level down and it was great.

“You're Not Special”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

While visiting for a friend's birthday, ten of us went to The Beachwood for their awesome views from the rooftop and large screen tv inside.
We sat at a large table and the server greeted us by saying, "We can't do separate checks and only take 4 cards, max per check." There was no introduction of her name, no hello and no welcome to our restaurant.
It was obvious the establishment cared more about making it easy for the employees to collect money as quickly as possible, but they forgot one business fundamental: Service.
We believed that if they were not willing to accommodate guests with something so simple like splitting checks and make an attempt to be hospitable, they didn't care about us as customers nor did they value our business.
We left right away and got dinner at a restaurant down the street.

“Great Burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

This place is awesome. On Thursday's they offer a BOGO on burgers. The food is great. The service can be a little slow at times but the location is good. Make sure you visit the rooftop.

“Great Roof top Beach bar!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

I have gone here twice while i was in town, both on Sundays. Always a great time. The food is average, the price is average, the locals come out in force and its a big party every time I'm there. What do you expect at the beach?
I consider this an indoor beach place even though its roof top, there are a couple of other bars ON the beach but foe a good party with beach view, this is the place. I spent more than several hours here, had lunch and the bill was still under $50.
Oh, BTW, rumor has it that it is owned by Aaron Rodgers, THE quarterback. As a Packers fan thats a great plus.

“Peaceful atmosphere - great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I ate at the rooftop patio, which offers fabulous views of the ocean and the sunset. The quantity and quality of the food was ample and very fresh. The server was accommodating throughout the meal, offered specials, and suggestions for preferred menu items.
