This is a great place to go and sit on the patio with friends. The food is average, but you can get perch and pickerel. The drinks are good and the view is superb. It can get VERY busy on the weekends in the summer!

We had lunch at the Beach House recently and were pleasantly surprised by the food (perch tacos and the chicken burger with fries). Much better than I expected from a "beach" restaurant. However, the setting is worth the visit by itself. The owner (?) brings...More

There perch dinners I believe are 17-18 dollars. Their haddock and chips is between 12-14 dollars. Some changes at this restaurant. I was there last weekend and they have a new chef.
