Well, after having been here numerous times since it transitioned from the beloved Peppi's, I feel my last visit at The Beach House was about the same as my last several visits. Mediocre.
When the restaurant first became The Beach House in the early 90s, it was upscale but over the years, and one bad renovation later, it has devolved into a family restaurant for West Vancouver (not a bad thing but this is not a fine dining experience).
We shared the Crab Dip (pita chips were nice with an overly cream cheese dip), shared a bitter Crab/Arugula Salad, then a very salty with tough pasta Crab Ravioli and finally a Creme Brulee (tiny and not that great). I had one speciality drink - Watermelon Ice Tea which was refreshing on a hot summer night.
Our server, we sat in the lounge, was hurried, forgetful, disinterested... there seemed to be an over abundance of staftt (we counted at least 20). They were all scurrying around like disorganized rats with confused and mixed up orders. The service is comparable to Earl's et al. Lucky if you get noticed in all th flurry of chaos.
Ambience - when TBH was new, the room and ambience were nice, however, the last renovation made a mess of the bar/lounge area and the colour scheme is way too dark. And from the bar/lounge you cannot enjoy the view.
Overall, this is a nice place to go with family or friends but don't go for a special occasion.
ps, the night we were there the ladies' room was out of tissue in two stalls and one stall was out of service. We had to tell the hostess and they reacted with the "deer caught in headlights".
