“No better than average”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We visited the Beach House because of its positive reviews re the fish fry - a western New York institution. While the fish itself was perfectly prepared and excellent, there is more to a fish fry than fish, and more to a restaurant review than just the fish fry. The beer and wine selections are low end. The soup was mainly an overly flour-thickened white base with little else. The shrimp and scallops appeared to come pre-breaded from a freezer bag - if they didn't, then there was no imagination in their preparation. The scallops had a negative "fishy" taste. Service was very friendly and attentive, and if you want an average meal at reasonable cost, this may fill the bill. If you want a bit more, you can do better elsewhere.

“Voted Best Fish Fry in area”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Homey family-type restaurant. Wed, Thur, and Fridays are fish fry nights. Come early or you'll have to stand in line. In summer, you can sit at one of the tables and have a beer or wine. Casual. Owner operated.

“Best local spot only Grand Islanders know about”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

They just know how to cook just about everything they have on the menu to perfection. Everyday but Friday they have wings on the menu. Cooked perfectly in a town known for good wings. Fish fry on Wednesday and Friday is bar none one of the top three in Western NY. Go for the potato salad... Captains Platter will fill anyone up who comes in starving. Burgers and sandwiches are great too. Nice spot for lunch too. Support your local restauranteur.

A great little neighborhood restaurant. Small, used to be a house. Food is consistent and decent. Great Friday fish fry. Limited alcohol choices.
