R they closed?. Sign was dingy yellow. Place looked abandoned.
Working on it, but can it get there.
Depends on the day, time and cycle of the moon. I've had good experiences here and I've had not so good. I would love to say it's only gotten better, but there's still work to do. Overall I'd say the trend is up.
Good luck guys, I want this to be my favorite place.
Menu is much better.
I've been to Life's a Beach countless times. I would agree with most of the comments that the food is either bad, they've run out of an ingredient (or the entire dish), etc. However, I was there this past week and was impressed with the new menu.
The service was much better than it has ever been and the waiter not only knew the menu, but also made great suggestions.
I always go to Life's a Beach for the atmosphere. Once, while my son was playing in the sand, I found a broken beer bottle in the sand. I gave it to the waitress and she started complaining to another wait staff person about "see what happens...". She was obviously upset about something that seemed to have happened previously.
I was a bit taken back that after finding the glass in the sand, and my son running about with bare feet, that there was no apology or even a "thank you".
Still, I do enjoy Life's a Beach and was very impressed with their new menu. I just make sure that my son now wears shoes while visiting Life's a Beach.
I too hear that it is owned by the same person who own's Village Grill.
Relaxing dining experience.
I read several reviews online so I was a bit leary of going to this restaurant, but there was a coupon and the kids wanted to try it, so we did. I felt like I stepped into a different world when we were seated (outside).... It felt like a mini getaway.
The food was not bad as reviewed on here. I got the "Jamaican Me Snobby" pizza. I thought it was quite tasty.
The music was great and I loved the waterfall and volleyball sand areas. I do wish there was a pool to top off the experience.
I could picture myself going back with friends enjoying margaritas and beer!
Great atmosphere, horrible food and service.
I live about 2 miles from this place and we really, really wanted to see it do well. Its a great location, very clean and huge restaurant and it has a great play area (beach) for kids. So the atmosphere gets 5 stars, but unfortunately the food and service gets no stars. Its was horrible. We have been twice, once when it first opened (and we hoped they were just having a bad start), but the second time was just as bad. It took forever to order, then they delivered the wrong food to us...twice...then the food came and all I can say is yuck! I got a salad. It stated it had croutons, cucumbers, etc, etc...well, I got brown lettuce and nothing more pretty much. My husband got a burger. How can you mess up a burger?? It was huge, but had no taste at all. lastly my kids all got pizza. Again, how can you mess that up?? The pizza has SO much cheese on it, you honestly couldnt eat it and it made it really soggy.
I had heard this place was owned by the owner of another local restaurant (Village grill) and we love that place, so maybe we heard wrong.
So if you want great atmosphere and arent hungry, I definitely recommend them. If your hungry..try somewhere else until they figure out what they are doing.
A work in Progress. Four visits ( plan on going again this week or next ) so far, each time saw improvement. Fun place to take a group with kids, prices were fine, the reviewers that griped about the prices must lunch on a dog and soda at Costco!
Best place to relax outdoors with a Margarita or Bucket of Beers with a beach, firepit & water fall!.
We have enjoyed this locally owned restaurant many times since it's opening a few months ago. Each time we visit, we feel like we are back on vacation in Florida or the Caribbean.
It's great to sit outside on the deck for lunch, with yummy margaritas & great seafood salads! They even have fans & misters to keep you cool while you relax under a palm tree. Bring your kids & they can play on the HUGE beach with sand toys provided...they will be so entertained, you will have a hard time getting them home! The food has always been delicious & my kids love it!
It's even better at night with the tiki tourches & the fire pit glowing. A great place to catch up with a few friends at the outdoor bar & deck. I have even been there when they have live music, which is great!
We have also visited the indoor sports bar for Mavericks games & love their BIG screen plasma TVs & tabletop speakers-so you can really hear the game! My favorite menu items are the "bucket of Bait", Coconut Shrimp, Peel & eat shrimp, Fish sandwich & Shrimp bisque.
This is just a great family & locally owned place for the atmosphere & the price.
Wonderful place and wonderful people. I have dined at Life's a Beach many times during both the lunch and dinner hours. I have not had the experience like many describe on this site. I have had great food and friendly prompt service each and every time I have eaten there. There can be a wait on the weekends... but it is worth the wait! The atmosphere and ambiance makes you feel like you are on vacation. I have enjoyed this restaurant each time I have been there and I enjoy more each time I go back! It's WONDERFUL!
Don't waste your time or money. Ridiculously over priced drinks and food! Pictures of beer $11.95 the most expensive in a 300 mile radius. Food and service awful no one seems to have a clue whats going on. Parking is limited if the food where free(which it should be) still not worth it. Save yourself high bl00d(wouldn't let me spell with oo) pressure and keep driving west to better dining. The building is kind of cool maybe should move it lakeside.
Slow Service, Messed up Food, Nice Building. We tried Life's a Beach after the excitement had died down. We stopped in several times before only to be told the wait was 90 to 120 minutes. I'm glad we didn't try it with a wait because all parts of the experience where bad. Service was terrible, took 5 minutes + to visit our table to take drink orders [restaurant not busy at this time], forgot one drink, took food order forgot to log order to go to kitchen, when they finally did send it to the kitchen it took about 30 minutes to get 2 salads and fish tacos. The salad came out without the key ingredient in the name and after a few bites realized it didn't have the signature dressing. The waitress didn't charge us the for the salad but you'd think at least a manager would come by and apologize for the issues - but they we're out and/or didn't care. It's good the salad was comp'd because the drink prices are sky high. Save yourself an extra long bad experience and costs and just drive down the road to Applebee's where the service and food are better because of corporate standards and the prices are reasonable because they don't have to pay for a high depreciation schedule. My 2 centers.
