We live in Massachusetts and visit Cape Cod many times each year. The Beacon Room is one of our favorite restaurants for dinner because the menu is always interesting, there is a good selection, the salads are special, and the taste of everything we have tried has always been great. We dine there five or six times a year and have never been disappointed. There is a full bar and a nice wine selection. The staff is friendly and helpful. When the restaurant is full of happy patrons, the sound level increases, but it is acceptable. Many local folks are repeat customers as is clear from the interactions between the guests and the staff. At busy times, be prepared for a bit of a wait - as you might expect with a popular place that does not take reservations. The wait will be worth it. The restaurant is generally open seven days a week. They also serve lunch, but we have not tried that.
