We used to stop in once or twice a year when the previous owners where there. It was worth coming down off of the Island Highway for a great meal by the sea. Not now. My wife had a poor meal there last winter, but didn't object when I pulled in yesterday. Maybe it would be OK? .... Not. Manhattan... More

Visited here on spur of the moment & what a pleasant experience! Beautiful sunny winter day, seated in a corner window (with heating so no chills)with beautiful ocean view. Very welcoming staff who went out of their way to be sure we had a lovely meal. My friend's sole was cooked to perfection. My sandwich delicious with best fries I've... More

What a lovely night out!! We went with my daughter who is vegetarian and my son in law. The service was fantastic, the meals were amazing, there wasn't a vegetarian choice on the menu, so they created one for us. They treat you like family and the food is amazing!! HIGHLY recommend this quaint beautiful place.

Four of us went here for dinner, been awhile since we had been there. The restaurant has changed hands several times in the last few years, and had not lived up to the original owners/chef for some time. Food has been descent, but not in a consistent category to bring you back regularly. We went for the 3 course dinner.... More

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...
