Nice Place

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

We have an annual family lunch in the Orleans area and this place is now the best to date. Everyone loved their meals, the drinks were excellent and the service was spot on.

My wife and went to the Beacon last night. Nice staff and a nice environment. Our overall impression was very good, with some very good things and some not so good. The halibut sprecial was fantastic, worth a 5, while the sole was probably more a 3.5. Crostini starter a definite 4. For my starter I ordered the lump crab... More

we have always heard great things about the Beacon Room but never had a chance to go. It is so worth all the great things we heard about. The place fills up fast but you can call ahead for a table. The Chicken Parm is to die for. My wife had the Halibut special and it was like butter. Can't... More

My wife visited the Beacon Room with some friends and was impressed so we went as a family. To say it was one of the best meals we have had, period, would be an understatement. We started with the lobster sliders which were delicious. They were plentiful and not overwhelmed by dressing or mayonaise. Next we ordered salads. My wife... More

My in laws have a house in Orleans and recommended the Beacon for dinner. We went early (around 5:45 and got in without a reservation) I think later in the evening you need a reservation). The restaurant is cozy (looks like it was a charming house at one point with beamed ceilings and brick). There is a nice bar. The... More

Great wait staff, nice choices on the menu with out over doing it. Food came to the table in a reasonable amount of time and most important it was delicious. Appropriately priced for the quality. Would return on next trip to the Cape.
