Located in the downtown Port Washington two blocks from the lake. Enjoyed sitting on the swinging chairs at the bar. Food was very good, great service and reasonable prices. I will return.

“Come and swing your way to happiness!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

Okay, in all fairness and full disclosure, my wife is a server here so I am just a little biased. That being said, Beanies is a fun, family friendly restaurant that serves up quality Mexican food. Their guacamole is made fresh and is a stable appetizer every visit. Their seafood dishes are excellent. The atmosphere is bright and clean. Unique to Beanies is the giant tree behind the bar. Instead of bar stools there are swings hanging from the branches. Come in, have a margarita, and swing your way to happiness.

“I don't think I would go back”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012

The prices are OUTRAGEOUS for what you get. 7.50 for a margarita?!?!?! And it wasn't "jumbo" as the menu states. The food was way overpriced & not too good. The salsa tasted more like spicy tomato paste. My children liked their food, and the service was great, but they need to lower their prices by quite a bit. It was us & one other table.

“Sit back and relax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

Beanies is a unique place that works for a date or the family. Over the years, Beanies has grown in size and now includes two dining areas. One is parallel to the bar where adult-size swings double as bar stools. The other dining area has a fireplace built into the wall and windows that look out onto Port's main street. Great for people/car watching.The bright paint and pinatas (they're for sale!) add to the warmth of the restaurant.

Beanies offers a variety of Mexican dishes with the usual rice and beans. Not exactly authentic, but tasty none the less. Margaritas are pricey. In addition, they offer a lot of drinks that make use of tequila. Between the salsa and chips to the fried ice cream, Beanies has a menu that suits most tastes.

A warning.... the food has always shown up quickly. However, the last time we were there, it took unbelievably long. It was obvious from the waitress's apologies that something was going on in the kitchen.

“Always consistent...”

Great atmosphere and decent food. The kids love the swings along the bar. Worth detour if your heading north.
