My wife and I stopped here on our way to Wellfleet. The atmosphere was warm in the service very good. We share a muscle appetizer special, a beet salad and Seafood Fra Diablo. The muscles were outstanding, the salad okay and the pasta very good. It's a nice place and we would return here next time we are passing through.

We were staying in Orleans for a few days at a friends house and we love the laid back dining. The Beacon Room was a nice option. The restaurant was bright and airy with high ceilings. I will start with the food since that made the biggest impression. Besides the house salad two of us had the gorgonzola walnut and... More

We had read good reviews and booked a table. The waitress was helpful and the food outstanding. I had a delicious canteloupe cocktail then we shared the lobster sliders which were great (especially the bread) Scallops on asparagus risotto followed and was equally delicious. We wished we were staying another day so we could return!

We arrived a bit later in the evening and was the last table to leave. No one rushed us which was surprising, but comforting since we are the type to linger. The food was delicious and wait staff very friendly and helpful. Best part of the meal were the delicious rolls... mmmm!! First time at the Beacon after almost 7... More

This has been a standout restaurant for us to visit for the past two years, and maybe Beacon Room set their own bar too high... because this year wasn't as outstanding as the past. Our server was wonderful and the retaurant itself is very pretty and comfortable. The cucumber martini is still excellent too! The calamari appetizer was too spicey... More

On Thursday night, August 7, my wife and I along with our daughter and her boyfriend, returned to the Beacon Room for dinner. We have dined at the Beacon Room a number of times over the years and have never been disappointed. The parking lot was completely full when we arrived (we literally got the last space) and we anticipated... More

Comfortable, friendly environment. Outstanding Italian-influenced menu heavy on the seafood. Nice wine list. This and Abba across the street are the best of the mid Cape.

This is what I want to find whenever I travel. It's a charming little building which happened to be only a few blocks from our hotel. The staff was very cordial, the food was interesting and delicious and the bar and wine list were very nicely handled. I felt welcomed as if I were in their home.

When I'm on vacation, the ambiance of a restaurant is almost more important than the food, and the ambiance at the Beacon is perfect for a nice night out in Orleans--it's a beautiful, simple space, not too fancy, but with an elegant yet casual vibe. Service was friendly and quick but non-intrusive. I liked that half-orders were available for dinner... More

My husband and I were in the mood for seafood that wasn't fried. We were originally planning to go to a restaurant down the street but the wait was so long, we decided to go else where. We ended up at the Beacon Room and I'm so glad we did. I have to admit, I was a little reluctant because... More
