We opened The Beacon up, way back in 2000. It's been a great success since Day 1, only growing better with the start of each new summer. We've learned a lot along the way about what it takes to make a summertime-only Hamptons restaurant move and groove. As the light on the East End changes and a new season approaches, we are reinvigorated by the beauty our region provides us. The menu, the wine, and some of the faces may change every year, but one thing never does: our full attention to you.

Lovely restaurant in Sag Harbor, was recommended to us by our lovely host. Loved the music in the background, had the mussels and then the couscous, absolutely delicious. Mussels were perfect. Would definitely recommend and would return. Staff were friendly and nice. Lovely to sit upstairs... read more

Lovely restaurant in Sag Harbor, was recommended to us by our lovely host. Loved the music in the background, had the mussels and then the couscous, absolutely delicious. Mussels were perfect. Would definitely recommend and would return. Staff were friendly and nice. Lovely to sit upstairs overlooking the yachts and the light reflecting on the water. Beware of the cocktails... More

everything here is great, except the wait, but the food makes up for it. The sunset is fantastic. David the owner is a doll.

Have been eating at Beacon forever. I love the food and the view is the epitome of Sag harbor and all that I love about it. The only " issue" is they do not take reservations. You need to show up when they open to have a chance of getting a table. It is a small restaurant. If you show... More

Took four of my friends for dinner. There were six in our party. Historically this has been one of my favorites in sag harbor. There are no reservations and if you get there by 6 you can usually get a table. The food is generally good and the sunset from the second floor is always wonderful - but not last... More

Four of us had a great dinner at Beacon on Saturday. They don't take reservations so you get on line at around 5:30pm if you want to eat at 6pm as the restaurant fills up as soon as they open the doors. Otherwise plan on eating around 8pm or so. There are outside and inside tables with a great view... More

The good - one of the best views of Sag Harbor, the food is good to very good. The bad - food is prepared before hand - most likely to accommodate all those who want to enjoy the view - however it is obvious. Overall - enjoy it for what it is - a great way to see part of... More

Fantastic venue, friendly staff, food was great. A really nice relaxed atmosphere. Such a nice experience, but best of all was out server, Tina. She went out of her way to make us feel cared for and appreciated which isn't always the way these days! Thanks guys will be back!
