After reading positive reviews after the re-opening of the Beach House Cafe, we stopped for lunch. The service, while friendly, was lacking. The bookends were having to ask to order a drink before our meal and having the bill placed on the table without being asked if we would like coffee or dessert. In between, our server told us 3...

I have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions and I have found the service to be good generally but the food is not always consistently well prepared. They seem to focus more on the daily specials and when ordered, I was not disappointed.

I ordered a steak from the reopening specials menu. The steak was hard to chew and I had to give up on a large portion of it. Two other people at our table also had the steak and their comment was " it is chewy." Others had the fish which was okay but they were not able to eat their... More

We didn't see the view this time as it was night time, but on the patio on a sunny day, or from the picture windows in daylight hours, it is spectacular. The food is also worth a visit. The menu is German, Central European, and Coastal seafood cuisine. Meals come with salad and veggie sides. I wish the bread was... More

We stopped at this little hideaway on the highway and were absolutely delighted by the staff and the view from the moment we walked in. The restaurant is very quaint…only about 25 tables, but the patio, [which wasn’t open as it was the end of October], looks like it could seat another 50 tables. The view from every table over-looks... More

After having such a poor experience here a year ago we decided to come back and try again. The restaurant is now being managed by owner Simona and husband....what a DIFFERENCE! The interior has had a face-lift- fresh paint and decor with the oceanfront view second to none. The menu has changed as well - great local delicacy choices and... More

Beach House Cafe was reopened in August 2016 under a new management, new owner, a very nice and friendly couple. We had a wonderful dining experience in this beach front Cafe. The food were fresh, delicious and cooked to our expectation. The seafood gourmet was to die for! The special grand opening 3 courses menu with 5 choices of main... More

I love this charming little Arts and Crafts style restaurant. It used to be a private residence but now everyone can enjoy it. You could not be closer to the water and the sunsets are spectacular. You can arrive by car, on foot or take your kayak. The food is also delicious!

We were a bit worried when we first went in as there was no one else in the restaurant. However, we decided to stay as the place looked very bright and clean with a view to die for. The staff were very nice and attentive - we thought we just went in for coffee which they were fine with but... More

Arrived here one night with a family of four, 10 minutes before closing the kitchen. Welcomed us with open arms, nothing was too much trouble. We sat outside and the kids could play on the beach. After being turned away from the terrible Shady Rest Waterfront, it was such a relief to be accepted so freely and given excellent service... More
