“Good food, helpful staff, waterfront location.”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We brought a large group - nearly 40 people - to Beaches for supper. Staff was helpful in getting us seated quickly, wait staff got right to us. Orders were accurate, very good food. Everyone could pay separately, no sweat. All handled expertly - this place is run by professionals - good job!

“Gourmet dinner casual atmosphere”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Last night in Vancouver we had dinner at Beaches and it was a great choice. We ate on the patio overlooking the river. I had the short ribs and the they were tender, tasty and the sauce was over the top. Our service was outstanding and our server was friendly and engaging.

“Avoid this tourist trap”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Beaches has a great location on the Columbia River. It is crowded and noisy. The waitstaff can barely get down the aisles because of chairs added to accommodate more diners. The waitstaff is a little too familiar for my taste, overtly aiming for bigger tips. The food was average: I had a "special": prawns & pasta. The pasta was luke warm but the shrimps were OK. I thought it was overpriced: about $40.00 each for five of us.

“OK, 4.8 for a light lunch”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Wonderful location overlooking the Columbia river. Outstanding staff, several of whom stopped to chat while we waited for our food. Good food and reasonable portions relative to prices, but a little too spicy for my taste (but nearly everywhere is these days). Fun atmosphere.

“Good food with a nice view”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Stopped by for dinner during a recent trip. Great food and drinks, attentive wait staff, and a pretty view from a table at the river's edge - hard to beat. We tried the chili-lime ribs and the shanks. Both very yummy as was the mac-n-cheese. Some bees were swarming around the people at the table next to ours but didn't bother us despite the sweet glaze on our ribs. That's possibly the one draw back with dining on the deck. Will definitely go back the next time we are in Vancouver.
