Beach Cafe is located at Carillon Point near the Woodmark hotel. The view is truly breathtaking and the food is wonderful. As an added bonus, the service is pretty great too! If you are visiting in the summer, I highly recommend dining on the patio.I like to go for Happy Hour from 3 to 6 PM daily. The appetizers are... More

We love going to the Beach Cafe because of the location and the gorgeous view. The food is ok. Very salty. I am always so thirsty after I eat their food. It is also pretty expensive considering that it is not that tasty. I can understand paying $18 for an amazing cheeseburger, but not theirs.

This place is nice and feels more upscale than the name. The menu offers a nice array of seafood and traditional dishes. Prices are quite high for the portion sizes. Had a decent wine list, but they were out of 2 of the 3 we tried to order. The views are great and worth going to for a nice, relaxing... More

The Beach Cafe has a lovely cozy setting with fireplace in the winter and great view of the lake in the summer. The food is disappointing and expensive. For $18, two tacos had less than a total of 1 oz of fish between them. Flavors were just OK. Salsa tasted like it was out of a jar. Although the broccolini... More

Great location and friendly staff, but the food could use an upgrade. Menu items didn't seem seasonal, and there were tons of salads and sandwiches, despite it being winter when we visited. Sweet potato fries were soggy and fish n chips fish was tough.

The Beach Cafe is a nice place for a casual dinner, even in the Winter. Views of Seattle across Lake Washington are available from most of the window tables. We were here on a clear night and enjoyed the evening. Cod fish and chips were our choice for dinner. They are seasoned with a little spice and served with delicious... More

Had breakfast after we checked into our hotel! Renee was our server and what a delight she was. Very knowledgeable and gave us lots of places to visit during our week long stay! We ordered the bagel and lox with a side of fresh berries and my husband had the cafe breakfast! We can't wait to come back to the... More

The food was awesome but the best part of lunch was our waiter Erich. By the time we finished our meal he knew us by our first names and made us feel like we had been visiting the beach cafe for years. I don't think I've ever had that personal customer service in any restaurant I've ever been to. Highly... More

Met a friend here on a Saturday. We both enjoyed the options available and decided on breakfast items. I had the ham benedict while she had the vegi-scramble. The restaurant was not busy so it was a great spot to visit. Have only been here for lunch previously. Look forward to returning for their brunch again.
