We had dinner in this restaurant. Because it was loud inside, we preferred a table outside where you are next to the Columbia river. We had to wait a few minutes because there were many people. In the evening the view is astonishing with the lights on the other side, in Oregon. We had a crab sandwich, the swordfish, 2... More

We went to Beaches for a mini family reunion. They easily accommodated a group of 10 and the server asked for all our names. Every time she came to our table she called us by our first name. Nice touch. The food came promptly and was very tasty. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

So we tried Beaches tonight. I have lived in Vancouver all my life and have always seen this place packed. Beautiful view. We got a nice table by the window and Megan our server was great! The food was NOT great. We started off with calamari. It was greasy and under seasoned. Comes with a extra tiny cup of sauce... More

This place is situated on the Washington side of the Columbia River, with a stunning view from the patio. It offers casual seafood, plus burgers, sandwiches and salads. It also features mixed drinks with beach/tropical themes. It fills up quickly during nice weather, so show up early, or be prepared to wait a bit for a table!

I have to say that I agree with some of the other reviews about the food. It is OK, but not really outstanding. I like the layout of the place, with the big wood fire oven in the middle and the giant windows so most diners enjoy a view. But I have to give it 4 circles for the great... More

Always a loud place. So if you are looking for quiet meal, this is not the place for you. Great food! Great for families and kids!

We stopped at Beaches on the way through Vancouver, WA. This restaurant was rated well, but after eating there I find it hard to believe that it's so highly rated. The view and location are nice. The food is mediocre at best. There was nothing specifically wrong with the meal, it just wasn't that great. The food was bland and... More

Food was good. Try the shrimp pasta it was delicious. Though I miss the old recipe of pasta with white wine, shrimp, some fish and scallops. Bread can basically pass as a appetizer or a meal. Very filling in a good way. Friendly staff Nice surrounding. A view of the river. If you are looking for a place to eat... More

The staff was very friendly and attentive throughout the entire service. However, the food was just "ok" in our book. The location was cool and probably draws in big crowds on nice days and for happy hour.
