From the outside you would never know this was a nice restaurant looks more like a cafe or fast food restaurant we only tried it because a few reviews from the hotel we were staying at said it was good.
We went in and booked the afternoon of the day we wanted to go and good job as the restaurant is small and because of the rain there was no outside seating.
The decorating could be better as it’s quite dark but the food made up for it.
We were a party of eight with two vegetarians and a fussy eater but all found something to chose. And food was served hot and in good time.
Would return

Food was tasty and service was good and friendly, but ambiance was sorely lacking. Kitchen is visible and runs the length of the restaurant. We had a table right near their service area, and our meal was accompanied by loud dish clattering, plate scraping in plain view of the diners, not to mention being about five feet from the restroom doors. Recommend you sit outside, or get takeout.

Beach Bistro owner sibling or not, it was disappointing. Read reviews & since they were mixed, tried it. Strip mall. Certainly nothing fancy about the place. Small. Some outdoor seating.

Did not have reservations but had rained hard all day, took a chance & dressed nicely for a good dinner out.
Met at door (not greeted) & asked if we had reservations. We said no, could you get us a table? Then he grabbed menus & led to table.

We sat there a while wondering if getting served. A young lady came over & offered drink order. She was a while & brought our drinks. Said she’d be back. Husband ordered the French Onion Soup for starter. We ordered our food at that time. He got the Roast Beef. I got the Mahi Mahi. $28 for 4 Oz.

Server brought us some pimento cheese & crackers to munch on. Ate those. Waited. No soup. Waited. Flagged down our server / asked about soup. She said they are working on it. Waited. The people next to us went through their whole meal before we got our soup.
Finally the soup came. It was good and hot. Finished soup. Waited. Food came out.
My fish dish was tiny. Fish was small, the slice of weird cornbread ? was hard on outside like warmed up from earlier. Some greens on the plate. Hubby’s was very good but the fingerling potatoes were woody tasting ( not restaurant fault- can’t test potato taste).

Server did not check on us. We flagged her down to get additional drink.

We left very disappointed in the entire meal and the service was awful.

Was excited to return this year. The quality of the food has definitely gone downhill. We had reservations and were seated immediately however our service was very rushed.
We ordered onion soup starters, they immediately brought our entrees with the soup. When I questioned why they did that our waiter said "well your meals were ready." NOT good. He never asked if we wanted another glass of wine, coffee or dessert...just put the check on the table and walked away. The soup was average at best and the entrees were fair.

So sorry to say our much anticipated visit this year was mediocre. Did the tables shrink? We felt crowded. Our food was not as special as in the past. My spouses pizza had WAY too many foods on it and my friend's pot roast was dry. My quinoa salad was excellent but my fish was over cooked.
