Sandy Point Beach House Ratings and Reviews

The wine and drinks were good. The quiet atmosphere was terrific for visiting with friends over dinner. But, the prices were very high for the type of food that was served. Most of us had hamburgers because we were put off by the high prices. The burgers were good but not exceptional. The service was excellent; well timed, but not hovering, and very friendly. It was good but not enough to bring us back because of the prices.

I ordered the white fish and it was over cooked to the point of chewy. However, they took care of it, bringing me a new entree and this time the fish was perfectly cooked. It wasn't our first time going there, and we'll be back. Nice place.

Went to Sandy Point Beach House to celebrate a special birthday with family. The service was excellent and our waitress knew the menu well and gave great suggestions. Food was delicious and very filling. The atmosphere was like being on the east coast...very comfortable. Will definitely return!

Sandy Point Beach House was an excellent choice, a short drive from Grand Haven, bartender was great a bit noisy at the bar however food made up for that. We had the whitefish a nice size proportion fabulous sauce a great little get-away...we definitely will be back to this neighborhood gem, a must go destination!!

This was my 2nd time there for brunch. While I had a fantastic crepe & bacon breakfast the other 3 people I was there with did not. Omelet was made with bacon(hardly cooked) instead of sausage as ordered and very small portion for $12.00, Club Sandwhich was ordered without cheese & it came with cheese, French Toast was two small pieces of cheap white bread with some fancy sauce for $7.50. Simply way to expensive for what was served. We arrived at Noon and ordered around 12:15pm, wasn't served our food until 1:15pm. The server was well aware of our issues, yet offered only to fix the food. I feel there should have been an adjustment off our bill. I will give them a break knowing they have only been serving breakfast for the past couple of months. Hopefully they will improve over time.

The food at Sandy Point Beach House is fabulous - totally top end. Unfortunately, so is the price, so this won't be our "go to" place to go to. But for a special occasion, absolutely. The atmosphere is a cross between industrial chic and beachy, which was fun. The service was great, as well.

I've visited twice. Both times the food was excellent. However, both times service was terribly slow and passive. Our server was missing in action for a good 15-20 minutes. And both times I waited at least 40 minutes for my food. The first time I waited about 50 minutes.The answer both times to this was "its so busy"...however there were plenty of empty tables at 9 pm. I would like to return becauseI greatly love the food and the ambiance but service is just so terrible.

I went here at the suggestion of several friends and family (all of whom, it turns out, had not been back in several months.) It was pretty busy and we were seated in the three seasons area which felt more like a garage with the low ceiling and double garage doors (an interesting choice to leave them closed on a hot day..)
We were seated next to a raucous 12 person table, which certainly added to the noise - my wife and I could barely hear each other. The 'spring bruschetta' appetizer was very good; however my main course (coffee braised short ribs) amounted to around 1 cup of stew accompanied by a completely flavorless (totally unseasoned) baked potato and a few twigs of undercooked late season asparagus. My wife's hanger steak was slightly undercooked and also completely unseasoned, and accompanied by soggy 'frites' with a pinch of seasoning thrown on the top 2 fries. Pretty lame.
The beer selection was not bad but not particularly robust.
Overall we were very dissatisfied. They seem like they are trying to bill themselves as fine dining, but that takes a little more than drizzling a reduction on a plate and adding a 50% to all the prices. from what I heard from my friends this is quite the change from a year ago. Might be worth trying if you sit outside but I would limit dinner to just a burger.

Our service there has always been excellent. The wait staff has been very professional and friendly. We found the last time we ate there our food was a little over cooked. The halibut and salmon dishes, to be specific, were over cooked and dried out. We will go back there however and try again. Most nights the food is excellent.

We arrived at 8:15pm. Started off on the wrong foot when our wine selection was not available. It took twenty minutes to determine this and order a substitute. Food was warm to cold and not very appetizing. Added to this the live music was blasting at 120 dB which did not make for a particularly intimate occasion. Would not recommend to out of towners.

The Beach House's outdoor space is cute but that isn't enough to warrant your very pricey bill. Drinks are weak, too-sweet, and served in plastic cups. Everything is over priced. My whitefish was dry and bland, and came with what were clearly frozen green beans (a travesty, given Michigan's excellent green beans right now!) for something like $25/plate. My boyfriend's pasta was fine at best and didn't even come with enough bread for the sauce (want a side of bread? $4!). His pasta was overcooked and also clearly not homemade (again, something I'd expect for a $24 plate of noodles). They were out of several menu items and we weren't told until we tried to order those items. We paid over $100 in the end (and each had just one drink). I wouldn't recommend anyone go there, and we won't be back.

We sat outside. Generally quiet and it was a nice evening. My wife said it was very loud inside. The outside is a large court with sidewalks with sand and bocce courts. There is a separate bar for service - but not for sitting at the bar.
The food was great. The only downside is several tables had little kids they just let run free around the courtyard and play in the sand like a sandbox. Was a little distracting and they would not have done this inside of course. Was hoping to try the scallops but they were out that might. 😞
