“Perfect for the beach”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

good place for beach town cuisine. Word is out that new owners are on the job to add several hamburger and fries menu items. Greatly needed so let's give them some time

“I'll go back!”
Reviewed March 24, 2011

I'm a local, and today was my first visit to The Beach House. The food was good, the service was good and the restaurant was good. And it was very busy, so that says something for this Rockport restaurant. The only drawback is that they have no wine and/or beer. Otherwise, it is very good and I recommend it for a good lunch.

“Sad to see this go down hill!!!”
Reviewed December 20, 2010

I use to go there all the time and had the best food and service until the owner decided to hide the personality of the place in the back. Kathren makes you feel as though your sitting at the kitchen table sharing a meal. Sad when you ask about her the new waitress staff tells you the owner is laying her off. I feel she made the place what it is.... On two seperate visits I saw some of her new staff stick bread to their nose and smell it then serve it. I almost threw up when I saw the owner take lettuce off a plate and reuse it.. At first the owner was very friendly and soon became very moody you never knew her mood and that went with the dessert and first fresh then stale. Very sad to see this gem turn to a rock

“This is a resturant with a golden heart!!”
Reviewed August 23, 2010

My name is thomas and I'm from San Antonio Tx me and my family where visiting rockport for 4 days for a family vacation.We ate at quite a few resturants but none came close to touching my heart as much as this one did.We finished shopping for the day and we wanting to find a good place to eat at so we asked several of the local people and shop owners if there was a good place to eat at and they told us about a local Sandwich shop called The beach house resturant.When we arrived the shop was about to close up for the day but they seated us with a smile and took our order right away.The service was awesome, the atmoshere was great and the resturant was extremly clean.I ended up ordering a Deli ham and swiss cheese sandwich,It's one of my favorite sandwiches and I was not let down.while we waited for our order we got to meet with a customer that was in a wheelchair he was a disabled vet that was a 2 time purple heart U.S Marine that had served in veitnam.But what really surprised me was that the owner of the resturant personally
came out to take this mans order while he was waiting for his order he noticed that I had a lot of tattos and asked where i got them so i told him here and there he then showed me his tattoos which included a U.S marine patch tattoo.When his order was ready the owner personally brought out his order and would not let him pay for it,She not only comped his meal but thanked him for serving his country and keeping us safe during wartime which touched my heart in a personal way then she held the door for him while he left.Our order showed up and it was bigger than I expected,The sandwich was perfect and it came with a fruit medley and chips.The fruit was out of this world and the chips where fresh which is hard to get nowadays.My sister in law
wanted to try a peice of keylime pie so she ordered it and it was so sweet.We finished our diner and asked for the check,when it came my family noticed that the keylimepie was not on the check and when we asked the owner she told us that the pie was on the house and it made me realize that this little place had a golden heart.
You don't find that kind of service anymore in america most owners dont show there face much alone take the time to make sure that the food is right and that the customers are happy.I would like to take the time to personally thank the Beach house resturant and to recommend it to anyone and everyone as the perfect place to grab a bite to eat and relax.

“Delicious Desserts!”
Reviewed June 6, 2010

I have been there 2 different times and it is very good! I had the 1/2 chicken salad sandwhich and soup. The chicken noodle soup was very good, you could tell it was homeade. The desserts are my favorite! One day I had peach cobbler and the next time was key lime pie. The owner served it with vanilla ice cream and brought it personally to the table. aIt was delicious and she walked around talking to customers. I over heard one man say he had been there almost everyday since they opened!
