Located right in the Sandcastle and on the beach, Shores has a full menu for families, as well as a side bar. We enjoyed the Clam Chowder to start and then full meals. I really enjoyed the prime rib. Wait staff were friendly and the service was fairly fast. A good spot in Birch Bay.

Four of us came here for a bite to eat and drinks during out stay at the Sandcastle right beside it. The first night I had a pretty good burger and fries and the second night I had an excellent Reuben sandwich with onion rings.

we ordered biscuits n gravey w/egg & sausage. wonderful, but wish they offered half portions. The eggs were too crispy, prefer softer whites, otherwise good.

We were staying in Birch Bay for a few days and chose Shores restaurant, because it was a convenient distance from where we were staying. As we didn't want a full meal, the idea of a happy hour seemed perfect. When we walked in, the place was not particularly inviting. It looked like it had gone through some hard times.... More

Not often can we find authenticity of this quality . . . a small beachfront venue, bare floors, rustic style, memorable tunes playing and enough visuals (TVs) to amuse most anyone ?? !! I was staying at the Sandcastle, which is adjacent, though not shared ownership in the restaurant. This was a little disappointing, as guests cannot order and carry... More

I went here for lunch with a friend on a Tuesday, I don't remember what either of us had to eat but I remember the service was awful. We were about the only ones at a table while a few guys sat at the bar. The girl working was far more interested in her bar customers than her tables. No... More

On a quiet Friday afternoon, we stopped for lunch at the Shores, overlooking Birch Bay. We split an order of wings which were the best we have had in a long time. Then we split a bacon cheeseburger which was also excellent. The server was very friendly and knowledgeable. This is a very good place to eat.
