“Good food and beer.”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

We stayed in The Commons hotel and ate at this restaurant which is located in the hotel itself. The server was new and slow but otherwise, the staff were excellent and allowed us to sit for a long time while we enjoyed drinks and then ate dinner.

“Bacon, bacon everywhere”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

I get it, bacon is the seasoning of the year in Minneapolis. However, I don't understand why it appears in 1/2 of a menu in this menu. It was in the biscuits, on salad, and even sprinkled over my partner's fish dish. Not being a bacon lover or pork eater, it came as a surprise. I suppose if the bacon had been freshly cooked, it might have gone down a bit better, but this was tough and impossible to chew. We left clumps of it on our plates. I suppose the good part of that is that it was easily identified in our mouths, and therefore removable. Other than a little indecision on the part of the hostess (who gave us a 1 hour waiting time when there were three uncleared tables available), the service was good, and the bar tenders made a Martini that was wonderful. The decor is good, the ambiance: adult.

“Expect the Unexpected!”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

Outstanding service and food during our dinner! We were a rather large group and they accommodated us in the private dinning space, The Den. Highly recommend Natalie as she was professional, courteous and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. We plan to visit again in the near future!

“Great atmosphere, delicious food”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

Really liked the Beacon, and it definitely an extension of the good customer service found at The Commons Hotel which it is attached to. We had breakfast, and ordered something simple, but they add the extra touches that make it feel like an experience. Excellent food....try their chicken blueberry sausage!
