Sandy Point Beach House Ratings and Reviews
Sandy Point Beach House was a very pleasant surprise. The food was exceptionally good and I do not recall seeing such an extensive wine list at any other restaurant in West Michigan, other than the Reserve in downtown Grand Rapids. It is definitely worth the drive to West Olive for this dining experience.
We went there for Mother's Day Brunch, it was a very nice atmosphere and the service was smooth and efficient. The pricing was out of line for the casual environment and the food selection on the buffet. There was only the Brunch option. $35 per person and $10 'momosas' was excessive for the overall experience.
We have dined here frequently since the Beach House re-opened. Invariably the experience has been good, with nutritious food and a good variety. Value for money is not always consistent - some meals are excellent value, others less so. I usually use Open Table to book, but the value of this is limited as the allocation of the table tends to be rather willy nilly. The advantage of booking on Open Table is sometimes limited.
When we arrived we had immediate seating which was nice. unfortunately it's prom time in West Michigan and out table was right next to several tables of kids enjoying their prom dinners. It was very loud and not so romantic. My wife and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary, so looking to be a little more romantic.
the wine selection was great and we enjoyed a couple bottles of wine. Had a fantastic smoked Halibut Pate appetizer off a great appetizer selection. Our main entree's were very good. Great flavors worked into the entree's.
Finished dinner with chocolate ganache cake and flan (off Cinco De Mio Menu) with a cup of coffee.
So overall food quality is excellent, great selections and moderate prices. We will be going back again. Just need to check the school calendar.
Our waitperson misheard my order and as a result, my dinner did not arrive with the others. They did not charge me for my meal, but it was disappointing. The facility itself is not very nice considering the prices.
The bacon wrapped dates were awfully good, though.
We visited for Easter brunch. Brunch options were minimal and poor, especially considering the $35 a person price. Our server was absolutely horrible. We waited over 15 minutes for her to even greet us. No water refills (I had to get my own from the bar) plates stacked up and never picked up, warm orange juice, drink orders wrong. Could be more understandable if she was busy but she only had 3 tables, including ours, she was handling. Most definitely will never be back. Very disappointing first experience!
We were there for Easter Brunch, at $35.00/person. The service was great-the food not so much. We were there at the beginning of the brunch and the food wasn't fresh and just warm and it was very evident that very little had actually been made in site. I wouldn't recommend the brunch buffet especially at this price, for a special occasion. Sorry.
We eat here at least 2-3 times a month. While the food was great this time, our waitress was not. After waiting for 40 minutes for our appetizer, she admitted she forgot to order it. Then when it came, so did our salads, soup and entrees. So our entrees got cold while we finished the other courses. I also had to ask her 3 times for a glass of ice which finally came after she took the water away which I was going to use the ice in.
We had a great evening at SPBH. We arrived early and sat at the bar for a drink. We met Tony, the bar manager, who couldn't have been nicer or more helpful as we selected drinks. He has curated an incredible wine and bourbon selection as well as many craft beers from local and state wide breweries. The more we got talking about bourbon, Tony showed us some off menu bottles that he has collected over the years. He even allowed us to add a couple of these rare bourbons to a tasting flight. He was very helpful and clearly an expert in his field. when we were seated for dinner, we had a very friendly and outgoing server. She gave us some great food and wine recommendations, and we were not disappointed. We started with a cheeseboard, which included several artisanal cheeses, pickled veggies, and other accoutrements.I had coffee rubbed short ribs, which were perfectly braised and very flavorful. Overall, we had a great evening from the moment we walked in the door. We will definitely be back.
Ambience is great--feels very cozy and is a perfect beach town vibe! Hummous appetizer was good. Baby wedge salad and seafood chowder were delicious!! Vegan Tikka Masala was not a favorite--seemed more like an appetizer kind of dish. Service was great! Beer selection was perfect. Would definitely recommend as a couples' or friends' night out.
Always love the Sandy Point Beach House, but had an amazing experience this time while celebrating our daughter's engagement. Service was fantastic. Food was great. And, we were with Spanish-speaking friends and the chef, who spoke Spanish, actually came out to go over the menu is Spanish with them! It was above-and-beyond service. Love the food! Love the vibe! Great place to celebrate and eat any time!
This was a perfect spot for 6 friends to get together. Only 2 of us had dined with you, before. On-line reservation was a snap and you honored our request for the "casual" side. Food was outstanding- (my husband didn't love the vegan marsala as it was almost all carrots). The Beef Stroganoff was the best I've ever tasted. Can't wait to go back in the summer and wander around outside a bit. Thank you for transforming this location and making it a local treasure.
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!!
