Beach House - Waterfront Dining
The Beach House and the Environment
Being a world-class beachfront restaurant is fantastic for our guests and staff, but at the Beach House, we have our bar set a little bit higher as we want to be a world-class beachfront restaurant that adheres to the principals of sustainability and eco-conciousness without comprimising the guest experience. It takes a little more effort but we think that the payoff is well worth it. Our focus on the environment impacted the construction improvements to the building and property as well as the unique way we view our restaurant operations.
