My wife and were really disappointed after our dinner at the Beach House on 6/19. We had the most memorable meal five years ago: Superior service that was timed perfectly and truly outstanding food--it was perfect. Our feelings echo those of Rick L on 6/22. The level of service just isn't the same. Management appears absent or uninterested.
We made a reservation and we were taken on time, but we were taken to one of the two-person tables all in a row one back from the window tables. There was no room--i had all of 4" between me and the guy behind me. After complaining we were moved to a window table without any arguing with the host staff--kudos to them for handling that well. It was disappointing to have to make such a request at the start of a meal.
As for the food the calamari was outstanding as was my wife's watermelon salad. My mahi mahi entree was decent, but the rice was foul. Imagine rice that's been dumped in the wash sink, swirled around then put on your plate. Very disappointing. Our server was more interested in how his hair looked and you just got the impression that he mind was on what the surf conditions were going to be in the morning. I can tolerate that sort of flaky behavior at the Waffle House, but not the Beach House. You need engaged staff to make a place like the Beach House work. They even missed little things like providing silverware for the main course (forks taken wtih the salads).
For the amount of money that we paid it just wasn't worth it. The view is outstanding, but go here for a drink then move on if you value how you're your money and time. Alas, we will not be back.
