“Secret Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

This place is not marked from the street. I had the Funky Chicken with Garlic Parm Sauce. Everything is made fresh to order so the wait is a bit but this chicken sandwitch was the best i ever had. There special homemade Garlic Parm Sauce was to die for as well. I never had the most perfectly cooked chicken, nice and moist great seasoning, fresh bread just unbelievable good. It was the best thing i had all week. Priced under $10 was even better. Staff was very nice and place was very quaint. You must go and try it for yourself.

“Beacon Deli, in my belly, ohh yyyeaahhh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

How this can receive a poor review is crazy. My wife's burger was so good she still remembers the name(4 alarm burger), and my burger was awesome as well. We had a certificate from Restaurants.com which includes 18% gratuity, however the service was so exceptional, we left even more tip, it was an absolute pleasure to dine here.

“Outstanding Burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

I wrote this review on the Lighthouse Key and Resort and then later I realized that it should have been under the Beacon Deli. The staff is very friendly and the owners Jon and Dina are extremely nice. The place has had face lift and it looks great since the last time that I was in there a few months ago. Chef Adam made a custom off the menu burger and it was perfect. I never thought that a burger with chili, cheese, ham and a fried egg would work together. Chef Adam knows flavor combination and It was one of the most unique and best burgers that I have ever eaten. I would definitely come back.

“Worst meal in years”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

We choose this dining place as we had a gift certificate from restaurant.com. Requirement was to spend $35. It is a resort eating space but whereas the resort is first class, the deli is anything but. Started out fine by having a good choice of craft beer. Ice tea was self service. Only two meals were above $10, but no t-bone steak as they were out. It was only 4pm, but no steaks available. I ordered the catch of the day that was breaded and fried. Not sure if it was a fresh catch being that it was already breaded. Two appetizers were horrible and my wife's hamburg was not even half finished as it was that bad. The french fries and onion rings were overdone. They added 18% for gratuity based on the gift certificate, but everything was self-service. Can't recall a worst dining experience in the past 5 years.
