“Delayed Write-up”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Ate there again in mid-November, but delayed giving an opinion (after giving a glowing review earlier in the year) to see what others recently said, i.e., was it a bad one-off night, or a restaurant depreciating in style and quality. As I can't tell from the reviews, I guess it was a bad night--entrees very much overcooked, with vegetables barely cooked at all. Servings did not come with all as listed on the menu, and had to ask twice. Oil used for frying was old, and had long since lost its clean fresh smell. Service was pleasant.

“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

Expected typical bar food and ran into a sophisticated, satisfying and fresh menu. Owners were sweet and seemed to have a following which is always a good sign! I cleaned my plate and would've loved to eat more.

“Now We're Regulars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

This place is a find. We've dined here a dozen times in the last 12 months, most recently last week. Dinner was excellent. Bites of cajun catfish were sweet and spicy, with mixed vegetables cooked al dante. Spinach and blue cheese salad with fresh hierloom tomatoes was refreshing. Pulled pork was melt in your mouth delicious. We like the simple menu. Service was fast and friendly. Beacon is now a regular date night dinner place.

Great food, attentive service, reasonable prices. As others have said, nothing special from the outside, but very pleasant inside. So glad we found this place, we will be back!

Innovative menus on Sunday nights. A gem! Chef's choice can be just about anything from sixties night to gourmet delight.
