Description: 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.

What a positive experience for lunch. The restaurant sits on top of the local yacht club giving you an exclusive club environment but with public dining. Views are terrific. Outside or inside tables. Menu also very nice with both our lunches being outstanding. These folks know how to prepare the catch of the day. Service very good, and quick. Regae music too. Plenty of parking across the street. Good one. Memorable.

Arrived early due to the reservation policy. Had a drink and enjoyed the sunset. The food was outstanding! The pork belly taco was delicious as we're the specials. A great find!

The food was very good, the drinks were fantastic and the view was amazing. We had a table overlooking the water and it was a beautiful night. Everyone's food was very good, but drinks and the food was pretty expensive.

My husband and I have lunch here once a year. It's the perfect oceanside lunch. We are lucky to have the opportunity to visit Fred's family each year on the North Fork of Long Island. While there we always take one day out on the boat visiting the east end of Long Island via the water. Our favorite lunch stop is Beacon in Sag Harbor. Dock your boat or come by car, the lobster rolls are fresh and the champagne is chilled to perfection. Sitting there eating lunch overlooking the boats coming and going is both relaxing and fun!

It is a restaurant tht opens only from Memorial Day to labor Day and a favourite for locals.
So yes, they are always packed, try callig way ahead of time for a reservation and try rememberig that they are very busy so they might not be able to cht the night away!
Fodd is ok, not bad and not amazing.
You pay for the sunset which is spectacular.
I would sit inside though: saw a rat running under tables once. Food and a port, what else?
