What a great place - especially if the sun is shining... Low-key; good food. Crowded (obviously). Nothing fancy, but always worth a quick lunch visit.

I recently met some coworkers at Beach Cafe for a meeting. We had good food and good service. Nothing extraordinary but definitely somewhere that is an easy go-to. Consistent and always good food, there's something for everyone from salads to burgers and more. They have comfortable seating and great views of the water.

We live this place for happy hour ... dinner wise it's really lacking in food options. We usually have drinks there then elsewhere for food. In the summer I highly recommend happy hour with the view it's hands down stunning.

My sister and I visited Beach Café on a Saturday afternoon for lunch in the bar. Wonderful venue, beautiful view of the lake. Food was very good. But really, our positive experience at Beach Café was mainly the result of the wonderful service we had from Ashley. Ashley's fabulous service and friendly personality really made our rainy Saturday afternoon lunch... More

This place is great for gazing out over Lake Washington. Its connected to the hotel so I'm sure it gets a lot of traffic. The food was good but my only complaint was that the menu seems very focused on high end pub food. It would have been nice to have a filet and a baked potato on the menu... More

What I loved most was the view this restaurant offered on misty Seattle mornings. There are wonderful window seats here offering great views. Service is good, and menu and prices are fine. I had the Salmon eggs Benedict, with eggs over medium. However, hash browns were uninteresting and could be missed in order to enjoy the main meal.

Had the Wings and a Caesar salad . . The view is great. It's hard to find a restaraunt with a great view in Seattle/Bellevue. Wings were great. Caeser was good.

We always use the Beach Cafe before and often after Husky games. The views are great. Stafgf is friendly and competent. Great bar for football viewing on TV. Yummy breakfasts and a great steak salad for lunch!

We eat here almost every UW home football game and we love it! The food is consistently good and the service is excellent! They know that we are on a fixed schedule to catch the boat to get to the game. My favorites? For breakfast the lox and bagel. For lunch the Yarrow burger with sweet potato fries and for... More

Expecting an over-priced and underwhelming business lunch at Carillon Point I was pleasantly surprised by the quality, value and service at Beach Cafe. Seating was a little cramped but the view and all else made it a very nice experience.
