1st visit to the Beach House Cafe last night. We both chose the special menu, 3 courses for $24.00. I had freshly dressed greens with homemade balsamic dressing, delicious. My husband opted for the soup, a meatball vegetable soup with homemade stock, also delicious. We both had the lamb shanks for the main, tender and moist, with a medley of... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the view. The interior is tired and sadly in need of a refresh. We went with friends for dinner and selected the 3 course special which was poor at best and expensive. I understand it is under new management and expected more - we were all sadly disappointed and I will not go... More

Have only eaten at the Beach House once. View was wonderful, right on the water. The service was good. Our meals were quite good, the chowder and a fondue type dip. Not one of the most memorable meals we've had, and was a little more expensive than some of the other area choices. Felt rather crowded somehow, but okay. Will... More

We love to stop there along the road for a relaxing lunch with a view over the water, even if we travel in autumn and it is usually cold and windy. The friendly staff offers an excellent choice for such a small cafe and everything you order is freshly prepared and if ever possible from local products.

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
