Lovely - as always

I always love going to The Beacon, which doesn't happen as often as I would like. The drinks are always great, and the food. . . There is something so reassuring about going somewhere and knowing that no matter what you feel like eating, it is going to be great. I highly recommend the seafood, but... read more

Best clam chowder of my entire Cape Cod trip! Excellent cod salad as well. Husband had a generous chicken club on brioche, so good! Attentive staff, but of a wait but definitely worth it!

The food was actually excellent. I ordered fish and chips and the fish was tender and not greasy at all. Unfortunately, it took an hour and ten minutes for our order to come. I know that sometimes restaurants are short handed, but no one even came out to apologize for the wait or even explain it. So it has to... More

We had a very nice meal ! Everything was well prepared and presented. The dining room is intimate and the table small enough for three that you need to be mindful not to bump elbows while eating. Our server , Mr. Keegan served the specialty coffee overflowing and despite the mess all over the mug, his comment was "oh,well it... More

I would have given this restaurant a good review. The Beacon is located in an attractive house and the service was good. My son enjoyed the lobster pasta. I had enjoyed the chowder and the cod tacos but there was something really wrong with one of them. I went back to the hotel and spent the evening getting violently ill.... More

The Beacon is a favorite place of ours in Orleans. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but you do get what you pay for. The gorgonzola salad with grilled chicken is a very good meal on its own. Servers are nice, but get there early as there is limited seating and you will be waiting.

My daughter and her boyfriend found this place as we stayed on the Cape this summer after 15 years. They raved about it although they said it was full of older people who seemed to be locals. I told her that was a GOOD SIGN! She went on to say that the food was amazing as was the service and... More

Adorable little house off the main road and away from crowds on a summer Sunday afternoon. Seated immediately, but feared we were too casually dressed . I would make sure to wear fancier clothes if we came back for dinner! Clam chowder outstanding, lemon pepper chicken soup very good. Grilled chicken club sandwich insanely tasty and they accommodated diary allergy... More
