We go here every chance we get for the breakfast.....its simple, relaxing and casual. You order at the counter and they bring you your food and its hot. The view of the beach is great. Coffee is unlimited once you pay......try it.

“Great place for Breakfast with a large group”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed breakfast 2x here with our group of 11. The food was delivered quickly to our table after ordering it at the window (within 10 minutes). If you order All -you-can-eat pancakes, you can go and get them right away. The food was good, hot, with large portions.
The cheese used in the omelettes is American processed cheese so be aware of it if you don't like that (we don't).
The second morning the wait to order was about 20 minutes, but the younger children could play on the playground near by.
Another head's up is that the food is very reasonably priced, but the juices are costly. For a breakfast tab of $110, nearly $40 was for orange juice! (It is however, freshly squeezed and very good!)

“Breakfast, lunch or dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

Anytime you eat at Beach-house restaurant it's excellent. Kathy is excellent at checkout. She is always smiling and helpful!!! The fish and chips is best in the island. Corndog and onion rings are excellent. Highly recommend.

“Best Fried Shrimp outside of Lafayette, LA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

Great beach side cafe. Free parking and plenty of it. The fried shrimp are simply amazing. Large, tender and juicy on the inside, wonderful light and crispy batter on the outside!! Not greasy. They cook them while you wait.
My hubby loved the Huge Couch fritters as did I. Best ones outside of Grand Cayman!
Order at the window and they bring them to your table.
Prices was very reasonable! Outside seating in sun or shade. Live music on weekends apparently. Nice gift shop and foot wash on sight. Can't wait to return!!

“A fun beach eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

Nothing fancy, just regular good-tasting beach food. The fact that it is RIGHT ON THE BEACH is the best! You can have your meal inside if it is cold or rainy, or you can opt to dine on the plastic tables and chairs (with umbrellas) outside RIGHT ON THE BEACH. They have the usual burgers, fries, chicken fingers, but they also have a very delicious Caesar salad, with over-the-top fresh ingredients. I'm not an early morning person, but I've heard they have all you can eat pancakes for breakfast. And did I mention - they are RIGHT ON THE BEACH!!!
