Great food, lots of fun – My husband and I have dinned at Life's a Beach five times and have been pleased each visit. I think the Carrebean twist to the food flavor and presentation is a refreshing change to the norm that you experience in so many other area food establishments. Service was excellent for us each time as well. The atmosphere is fun and comparable to being at a resort. In fact, we loved the enviroment so much that we took our children and grandchildren for an evening of good food and after dinner fun playing on the beach.
Avoid Restaurant – Great concept. Service opened bad and then got better. In the last month it has took a turn for the worst. No silverware. No soap in restroom. Slow drinks (alcoholic). Order two at a time if you go because you will not get your second one before you have to ask two or three times. The food is bland. Needs more spice, more flavor and more pizzaz!
The bartenders are not the best in the world...there are 1 or 2 that know how to make a drink, but for the most part you need to tell them what to do.
We have been there a few times and these items never improve.
It's a shame someone doesn't take over and improve on some ideas.
Great date night restaurant. – My husband and I have been to Life's a Beach 4 times and have never had a bad experience like the other posters. There is always a wait to sit on the deck but it is well worth it. The margaritas are great and reasonably priced, about the same as other restaurants in the area. I love the fish tacos and my husband always orders the Cubano Tom (a Cuban style Panni). The service has always been courteous and attentive.
The first time we went there was a man playing a steel drum that really added to the beach atmosphere. We asked if they were going to have him back and the manager informed us that they have moved live music night to Thursdays.
We love this restaurant and jokingly call it our mini beach vacation. It's a great additon to the area and we love that it is so close and that we don't have to drive to Dallas for a good meal.
Fun setting, horrible food – An idea whose time has finally come in Denton County! Great ambiance for pre/post ball game dining. Unfortunately, the food is terrible. My teens and their dates went, all came home complaining about the tasteless burgers and greasy pizza. I visitied with a group of 7 ladies and 3 of us got sick later in the day from the pecan crusted chicken salad. My husband tried it with his golf buddies and no one at the table finished their meal. All the food tastes very frozen/thawed/cooked to death, which is ashame. Too bad the food can't be as unique as the setting. I don't personally know anyone who has been to this restaurant more than once.
Beach owner – As the only owner of Life's a Beach that is active in the operation I do take exception to the review that indicated that I told a customer to go to another restaurant if they were not happy with mine. That is absolutely false!! I am not sure who the person is that wrote the review but I strongly believe it was posted by someone who is just out to tarnish the restaurant for whatever reason rather then an account of an actual customers visit. I also know we are not even close to the most expensive restaurant in Denton County so the review in general has credibility issues.
We are a new (opened March19th) One of a kind Caribbean themed Grill and Sports bar with a beach that does allow families with kids. We are constantly working to improve all areas of the restaurant just as every new establishment does when they first open. I welcome all comments good and bad and would enjoy hearing from anyone who would like to offer suggestions on the restaurant. Please feel free to contact me with your comments, send all messages to Jim@Lifesabeachgrill_com
Queso $ucks, and the food gave me indigestion to say the least. – Its a kid playground, which is not that big adeal. So if you have kids and just don't care what you or they eat, then thats the place for you. The food sounds interesting but the way it actually taste tells me that this place needs some major redoing. Good luck not getting sick from it.
Way overpriced – Service is bad! Food and drinks way overpriced. You could easily goto a three or four star restaurant for the same price.
Worst place in Denton county! – Most expensive restaurant in Denton county. Food and service horrible! Due to the "sandbox" outside kids EVERYWHERE without adult supervision. Parents and staff don't care about the unsupervised kids running amok. My wife and I have been twice and will not go back. While in the bar area we noticed a blind guy with a guide dog and the staff didn't do anything about the kids running all over the guide dog or care about the dog's owner. After speaking to the owner on the phone he said "don't come back if your not happy here Sneaky Pete's is where you should be". While Sneaky Pete's isn't our cup of tea maybe everyone else in Denton county should check it out.
Editorial Review – Huge restaurant in Highland Village features sand volleyball, large patio with fireplace and fountain views.
