Seafood
Beach House in West Vancouver has been completely transformed. From the design of our heritage-designated space to the seafood-centric food menu and curated wine list, everything has been reimagined for a truly West Coast dining experience.

Beach House’s food and drink menus take inspiration from all along the West Coast. Our rotating seafood-centric menu brings fresh, bright flavours and the most in-season local ingredients to the forefront of each dish. Taking particular influence from tours around Southern California, Culinary Development chefs David Wong and Hamid Salimian have thoughtfully blended West Coast dishes with the region’s prominent cultural cuisines. Together with our new extensive martini menu and a reinvigorated wine list that includes all of your favourites – plus an introduction to undiscovered gems – Beach House offers a West Coast experience that’s unlike any other.

The Seafood Tower for 4-6 was delicious! Service could be better.

The Beach House is in a great location with a lovely view. We were looking forward to our first nice dinner out since the pandemic started but it was a big disappointment. There seemed to be a large number of staff that were all pleasant but the service was beyond lethargic for an evening that was not very busy. We had to ask to place our order. When it finally arrived, the food was overcooked, dry, tasteless and cold. We did not dare return it lest we have to wait another hour. Although we were not in a rush, we were in the restaurant for over 2.5 hours and all we had was a main course and one drink, and had to track down our server to ask for the bill. There should be no excuse for the quality of food or service at this price point. We will not be returning.

Our first visit after pandemic reopening. Organization was good, diners were well spaced. Noise level much reduced. Of course the view is fabulous. I would have liked more BC wines on the wine list.

I am a regular customer. Took friend for lunch today. First for her. She had the dockside burger ( my fave). I ordered the lobster roll. SO SO SMALL. Hardly any lobster in it at all. Did tell 3 staff members. No comp offered at all :/. That was very disappointing. This place has THE best patio and view . It’s too bad. Usually 5 ⭐️. Reno’s are fabulous!

Came for our anniversary and was not to disappoint the lady. Daniel at the front desk was amazing and welcoming right away and we were sat early for our reservation. Service was prompt and the food was delicious as usual. First time back since the re-opening and was not to disappoint!! Would come back and definitely recommend to friends and family

I had been wanting to visit the beach house for awhile and decided to have an anniversary supper there, poor choice We both ordered Filet and Lobster medium rare the steak came way over cooked almost well done and the lobster was raw in the center every thing was way to salty almost to the point of not being able to eat it. It is hard to complain at the time because I did not want to ruin the special evening we will not return.

Long term Patrons of the Beach House - Over 50 years from Peppi's in the 60's to Now. Renovation is good and the staff is fabulous. Food is good. Not Great - Location and Ambiance is " the Best". We will return. Need to upgrade the non alcohol beer to Clausthaler or Wersteiner. Prohibition is Crap - Also need to look at Joey's Menu and add some more fun stuff to their menu's. The happy hour is way way too limited. Plus cocktails. Somewhat disappointed in the new Beachhouse, but love the location and are loyal 50 year patrons. And will continue to return Ralph&Barb Scobie

Very disappointing brunch. Wonderful location & a stunning view on a sunny day.
Service was not great, server was lovely, but service very slow. We had a reservation at 12.15pm, brunch did not arrive until 1.30pm.
Flatbread had way too much chili & not enough lobster. English breakfast toast was way too crunchy, mushroom a little dry.
Wouldn’t go back for brunch and would have to think twice about trying another meal.

Other than the volume of voices we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Beach House since the renovations. I understand noise volume is being worked on.
Thank you for a wonderful visit.

We had two sandwiches with fries. Fries were horrible. Not really hot and below standard for that type of restaurant. They were like McCain shoe string fries I’d serve kids. Check out the fries at Cactus Club for inspiration! Seriously!

The view was outstanding, and the service was excellent. However, the lunch menu was limited, and the food itself, when it came, was good but nothing special. We were seated next to a door to the patio which the staff kept opening, letting in a blast of cold air - the management might want to rethink having a table so close to the door. Although the manager came over and apologized for the door situation, nothing was done to change it. Also, the noise level was high. This seems to be thing with restaurants these days, but really, it does nothing to add to a relaxing dining experience.

Have been to the Beach House many times and always enjoyed it. Today the food was just marginal for 2/3 of us and we felt the meal was overpriced. VERY NOISY. Super disappointed.

Nice the Beach House is open again after Reno. Noise level is down thanks to new sound absorption panels strategically placed. Had the old favourite Lobster Roll again and while their in house bakery bun (just like east coast) was great, the lobster stuffing lacked something. Good but not their usual great. Seafood bisque soup was really well done. Will have to go back and try again. Overall still really good.

Some items are too large.
Maybe two prices, one for full servings, one for half.
A little noisy, but you do have a bar.
New decor, definitely New England.
