MRS SHAWN RHOTON @ The BeachHouse Restaurant MADE my wedding come true

Reviewed on 6/27/2014 Sofia M

Customer Service is EVERYTHING! I sent an email of inquiry to the Event Coordinator, Mrs. Shawn Rhoton, and within two hours, she responded back! I am sure I sent over 10 venue inquries that same day but no other potential venue sites got back to me with such quick AND... Read More excited responses. Ms. Shawn was concise and very helpful from the very beginning. She truly was down to earth and happy go lucky. Truly, Ms. Shawn MADE it possible to have the wedding of my dreams at the Beachhouse Resturant. She is an absolute joy to work with, as well as her staff!! Upon visiting the site, I was not 100% sold and nothing "wowed" me at first view, HOWEVER, upon meeting Ms. Shawn in person and talking with her, she helped me envision how my future husband and my wedding could be like. She WON my heart by her excitement, her true care of my dream wedding, and her desire to make it all possible. The site itself is beautifully set right upon the beach which extends outward for miles. The entire environment was relayed with Ms Shawn and she would pop in ideas of what has worked in the past and made it possible. She and her staff were wonderful to work with in the set up the day of the event. Ms. Shawn and her team went ABOVE and BEYOND in every aspect! The day of the wedding was BEYOND perfect and more wonderful than I could have ever imagined. The staff was WONDERFUL and SO KIND to my family, my wedding party and myself. Any little thing that I could have thought of was addressed and then some. The venue also provided the food and it was SPECTACULAR and OUT OF THIS WORLD! My parents and I ate there at the Restaurant about 4 times before the actual wedding. The Restaurant itself never misses a beat. EXCELLENT FOOD! The day of the wedding, the food was simply divine and of great variety. There was the obvious seafood of shrimp and grouper, as well as prime rib and chicken for those that weren't seafood lovers. I am not one for wedding meals (I think most of the time they are either overdown or undercooked. Mass meals are harder to make.) But the food was simply exquisite. My husband and I didn't get to eat much the day of our wedding, but the staff boxed up our meals and then some for us, cake included! Everything was planned and taken care of down to the T! I could not have asked for a wonderful site coordinator who knew how to make a bride feel at home and at complete ease. I would recommend this venue a thousand times over and over again!

The best day of my life!

I can't begin to summarize how amazing The Beachhouse restaurant was for my April 29, 2014 wedding!

On the actual day of the wedding she was somehow everywhere we needed her to be, whether it was helping to time things for the ceremony or handing me a wet rag when my husband wiped cake all over my face at the cake cutting :)The staff was incredibly helpful and no one ever went without a drink in their hand. They also helped up break down and load up all the centerpieces and décor at the end of the night. And the food.....AMAZING.

The bridal suite is beautifully decorated and was a great spot for me to dress and wait to walk down the aisle.

I would highly recommend this spot!!

The Beach House Restaurant and Shawn Rhoton made our dream come true with our wedding. From day one when we were looking at Venues on Anna Maria Island we had a staff member take time to show us and explain that they will be remodeling. At first, I was so upset because they... Read More could only fit 50 people at their venue but then learning about the remodel which fits up to 100 we knew we had to pick The Beach House. The remodel looks amazing and made our wedding day even more special. The staff including the cooks, bartenders, wedding coordinator, waitresses went above and beyond the whole week to make us feel special (we stayed on the island). One bartender, Adam decided to work on the day of the wedding because we begged him. Everyone just treated us like family. We also planned this wedding from Michigan which I was very worried about. The coordinator, Shawn Rhoton made it very easy and was so helpful. She emailed me back and forth for a year and a half and was amazing the whole time. She always made time for me if I was in Florida and wanted to meet or if my mom wanted to meet with her. She helped choose all the vendors who all did a wonderful job. Shawn took a lot of the stress off of me before and during the wedding. She even took pictures during the wedding and sent to me after. I couldn't have planned this wedding without her. If you are thinking about having a wedding on Anna Maria Island and want to have your dream wedding for sure choose The Beach House. They are professional and care about each and every one of their weddings. Thank you again!! Love, Mr. and Mrs. Osdras 10/20/2017

My dream was to have a waterfront wedding. The Island of Anna Maria has so much to offer. The Beach House Waterfront Restaurant is situated right on the Gulf Of Mexico and has the best views of the Gulf. Choosing them to host our Wedding was the best decision we ever could of... Read More made. They exceeded all expectations. Our experience started off with meeting their even coordinator, Shawn. She knows her stuff! Shawn was able to keep the planning process stress free. She was always available for questions (or support for a stressed bride). Shawn was there the day of our wedding and executed our vision perfectly. As the Bride, I did not have to worry about a thing which gave me time to hang out, relax, and get ready with my Bridesmaids. October 8th, 2017, the day of our Wedding. Everything was set up perfectly. The staff greeted the wedding party as well as guests with professionalism. We had a beautiful ceremony on the beach right beside the restaurant, which they set up for us. The cocktail hour went perfectly. The Hors d'oeuvre and drinks were delicious. My guest could not say enough positive things about the food during the weeding. We chose to add bacon wrapped scallops as one of our hors d'oeuvre choices. I highly recommend them! The servers were very attentive and did not leave one guest with an empty drink or request. Shawn brought the groom and I plates of hors d'oeuvre and drinks to the bridal suite while we were waiting to be announced. This was such a special touch and something my husband and I really appreciated. We had the reception, dancing, toasts, dinner, cake cutting, and of course more dancing. We decided on their buffet option for dinner. It included prime rib, local fresh fish, and a chicken dish with sides and salad. The buffet was well kept and there was plenty of food for all of our guest. The Beach House Waterfront Restaurant is the best option on Anna Maria Island for a wedding. They offer many options and services to choose from for the bride and groom. We were extremely pleased with our wedding at the Beach House and recommend it to any couples planning a beach wedding.

There literally isn't enough good to say about the Beach House & the Special Event Coordinator, Shawn! We booked the Beach House for our wedding on 09/22/2017.

We were confident that no matter what we threw her way, that she would find a solution, and I can honestly say that I don't think our day would have been nearly as special without her expertise! She helped calm my wedding day nerves, and assisted in the overall "flow" of the day to make sure things went as smooth as possible. And not only that, the STAFF! Our guests continually rave about how professional the staff was, and how quickly they worked. Plus, the food is to die for! So many of our guests complimented the food, and said how it was the best "wedding" food they had ever had & WE AGREE! We have been to the Beach House many times before, and have never been disappointed in our meals. Our wedding day food was no different, and we couldn't have been happier with how the day turned out. I could speak volumes about Shawn, the Beach House staff, and the food - just know that if you come here for dinner, or you book a special event, you will NOT be let down. The atmosphere, location and "island" feel of the Beach House is amazing and it's a must try if you are on Anna Maria!
