Sandy Point Beach House Ratings and Reviews
The food was very good. I had the coffee braised short rib which was very tender roast meat served in a small iron pot. Wife had the fancy chicken dish which she liked. We went in February but imagine this place is wonderful in the summer on the back patio.
My friends and I went for the live jazz. We ordered appetizers and drinks. The drinks were expensive, but very good! The food was expensive and pretty good. I ordered mussels, and while the flavor was great, the mussels were very small. Our server was wonderful....friendly and attentive.
Madison was our server and she did an outstanding job. She anticipated our every need, kept us updated on our meal delivery and made sure our wine pairings were delivered just at the right time. The food and wine pairings were delicious. Thank you !! We will be back!!
I am regular user of Open Table and travel a good bit for work and pleasure. So I can say with some true confidence that our meal and experience on Sunday evening was just "OK". You come to expect a certain level of quality and professionalism of an establishment when the entrée prices range from $39-$60+.
It just so happened it was my birthday. And I certainly wasn't expecting anyone to place a funny hat on my head, and have all the wait staff sing. (Actually everyone gets a kick out of that except the person having the birthday.) But when half of the table ordered Desert, I did expect at least a Free Desert. But no Free Desert was provided. And its no big deal.
What was a big deal was the fact they place was slow, I would say less than 20% full and so I did expect perfect service and food from a high end (high priced) establishment.
My Filet was way over cooked. Closer to Well or Med Well. When I ordered it Med (even said to the waiter....warm pink center.) Which brings me to my waiter. He never checked on my table after the food was served to make sure the entrees were as expected..... Glancing over my shoulder, I saw him laughing at the bar talking with a friend. So yeah, I was a little disappointed. The appetizer was excellent (dumplings). Bread was nice (even if you have to pay for it too). But the overall experience was mediocre at best. Oh did I mention I picked out a great wine?
Overall a good experience, however the wait staff member we had for the night was clueless. Multiple questions about the menu items we answered poorly. One example was desert...one of the options was NY Style Cheesecake which we ordered - but she came back and said it was gone. Then the other option was Key Lime Pie, which we asked if had a Meringue top. it was mentioned that yes indeed it was, but when the pie was delivered to the table, it had whip topping. Clearly not in tune with what was ordered.
Will think twice before going back...
This was our first time ever at Sandy Point Beach House. We located it via Open Table and checked reviews on YELP and went. The outside would be a lot of fun during the summer, but inside was nice also. We had a good server for the most part. The New fashioned drinks and all our drinks were excellent. The cheese appetizer platter was also one of the best I have had, but it stopped there. Ordered a Delmonico steak Medium Rare that was good on the edge, but rare on the inside (really rare) - I should have sent it back, but did not. They do not have A1 or any steak sauce, just a house bistro which is basically brown gravy. It did not add to the steak at all.
We did not get asked about drink refills and did not get asked about dessert (still not sure, maybe they don't have dessert, never asked because the bill came so quickly).
My girlfriend and I dine many places around West Michigan and for the $120 + tip meal, I would just have expected better. This would have been fine for a $50 or $75 experience, but to pass this off as the same price as 616 in downtown Grand Rapids doesn't work for me.
I hear they used to be known for the burgers, may go back and just try a burger and fries because it is a nice setting between Grand Haven and Holland.
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.
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.
