Beacon Bar and Grill
Service for brunch was a littleService for brunch was a little slow, but the food was good and they kept our coffee refilled. Would go back.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGood experienceThe food was delicious, waiter fantastic! He kept our glasses full. The staff was great, although the hostess was almost inaudible.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and excellent serviceWe were seated promptly at our reservation time and our glasses were filled from the moment we sat down until we got up. The food was fabulous but the setup was changed from the last time I was there with friends. My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary and we both enjoyed the drinks, the food and had an awesome time!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat TimeIt was my first time going to the Beacon Bar and Grill. We went on Sunday for Brunch and the restaurant had a very energetic vibe. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Our waiter was very attentive and would continous fill our glasses with mimosas. I would definitely return to this establishment and I've already recommended it to a few friends.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOut of townersA friend and I made a reservation for brunch based on the online brunch menu. We were slightly disappointed that the menu had changed, which is understandable and to be expected. The food was good and the service even better. It was quite warm inside though. Could've used some AC. Overall we had a pleasant experience.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Time for The Brunch BunchA great time was had by everyone in our group. The out-of-towners in our bunch were very impressed and asked to possibly brunch there again in the future.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved itGreat and beautiful scene. I was there for my birthday dinner and it was great. Service was good and the food was nice too. I will definitely come back6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood choice.This was my first time here for unlimited brunch.

I appreciate the attention to making sure my company and I have a great time!
Jamal Dickerson5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMServiceThe gentlemen who was also the Bartender was our service, and I must say that I've been coming to the place for years this is the second worst service I ever had. I had to get his attention several times in order to get served champagne he was not very attentive. I even had to walk to the bar at one point, and even then he was not attentive and the bar was not that crowed .......to me it seem like this was his first time servicing a bar/table at the same time.
Mr. Butler5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday Brunch great for 20-30sBusy, noisy and upbeat at Sunday brunch. $35 for buffet and endless mimosas. Full of local 20 and 30 somethings. Might be a bit noisy for older crowd. Food is plentiful and good.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Brunch Spotmade reservations for a Sunday birthday brunch of 12 and were able to be seated immediately. Our server kept our glasses full of Mimosas and I didn't hear one complaint about food. Everyone seemed to enjoy the variety of food which is impressive since I had a somewhat picky group on my hands.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday BrunchSaturday Brunch was excellent. Beacon Bar and Grill offers a varied menu, featuring many delicious options, freshly prepared and beautifully presented. The atmosphere is exactly the right combination of relaxing, yet interesting. The service was prompt, efficient, friendly, yet unobtrusive. A "must do" while in DC.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat brunch spot!Went there for the Saturday three course brunch with bottomless mimosas/champagne and we had a great experience! The first course and desert were average, but the entree was outstanding. I had the huevos rancheros and my friend had the crab cake. Both our choices were executed in an original way and they were DELICIOUS.
The decor is modern and the dining area is very spacious, which is nice and unusual for DC.
Our server was very attentive and respectful. Definitely recommend it for larger parties (as they have the space to accommodate) and its a great place to take out-of-towners visiting you as it is not that expensive, the food is excellent and the space is beautiful.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMCame in last night sat onCame in last night sat on the patio. Wanted some quick service and ended up staying for a few hours. Loved it!!!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAwsome!!This place was the best! I took my fiance' there for Brunch on Mother's Day and we loved it. The price was reasonable, in addition to the UNLIMITED MIMOSAS-- which i never seen the bottom of the glass. The only negative to this hidden gem is the fact that parking was very limited (street parking) and we circled the block for 30 minutes looking for a place to park. All in all, Beacon Grill will see us again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a PleasureI have done brunch at Beacon a few different times on Sunday for their brunch buffet. This time, I decidedto take my mother there on a Saturday. ALL of the brunch menu selections looked and tasted outstanding. Normally, when I attend brunch there Jember is my server and she is absolutely AWESOME. This time, I had a different server named Diane. She was very friendly, although nowhere near as energetic and attentive and Jember always is. Regardless, a great experience as usual. I recommend this brunch to whoever will listen all the time. The only pit-fall is parking, which can get to be a hairy situation on the weekends. I lucked up and got a spot right out front, but I normally plan to valet when I go.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday BrunchWent to Saturday Brunch. Three-course meal for about $25, with unlimited champagne, so it was a good deal. The three courses were from a reasonable menu of options. The dessert was a bit of a disappointment, but everything else we had was very good, the ambiance was nice, and the service was excellent.
We would definitely go again, as there were enough choices and the food was good enough that we would feel comfortable trying other items on the menu as well.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat 1st experience!!!The food, atmosphere, and service were excellent!!! Great for lunch/brunch/dinner dates for all ages!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis brunch takes you to dinnerIf you do this brunch, there is no need to eat until late at night. Excellent food, great choices and unlimited Mimosas....5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the most amazing brunchThis is the most amazing brunch and a wonderful value. Yes, it's a brunch buffet, but there are sweet and savory options that are constantly being reflowed. I went on a Sunday so there was unlimited mimosas available and your glass never gets below half full. The food is fresh and there are a lot of options for meat eaters, vegetarians and everything in between.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday outingSunday brunch is a great place for meeting up with friends.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, good for adults & kidsVery good food, excellent ambiance. We had a lovely server and the manager was really great also. Our server was excellent with our two young kids and kept the bottomless drinks coming. Our kids especially loved our server who was patient with them.
The only drawback was that some of the other servers were pretty rude. We figured out early that we had the best one in the house (which was great due to us celebrating an event).
All in all I'd go back. I was very pleased overall and found Beacon to be a great find.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for brunch! EnsureGreat place for brunch! Ensure reservations are made ahead of time or it will be difficult getting a table.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA friend and I reserve BeaconA friend and I reserve Beacon Bar and Grill as our special friend's brunch whenever she's in town. We both love the ambiance, the food is great, and who doesn't love bottomless mimosas??? :) Highly recommended!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good brunch...It had been quite some time since we had been to BBG for brunch. It was as good as I remembered. The selections were very plentiful, with both breakfast and lunch items prominently featured. I honestly believe anyone could find something they would be happy with. All of the food looked very fresh and the presentation was nice. This brunch also featured a made-to-order omelet bar. They don't have a carving station anymore, but it didn't take away from our experience.
Brunch also includes all-you-can-drink bloody marys and mimosas.
Two things. The price is $34.95 per person. If you don't drink, you may find it hard to justify the price. Also, PLEASE make a reservation. I saw the host turn away people that didn't have one.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first experienceThis was my first experience with the brunch at Beacon Bar and Grill. I was taking a friend there for her birthday. Both of us were very impressed with the food and service. The layout of the restaurant was nicely done. The food was excellent and very plentiful. We ate until we both had quite enough. It was wonderful. I highly recommend this buffet and this restaurant.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBB and G fanI have been to the brunches before but this was the first time I had made reservations and as always the atmosphere was awesome and the food was to die for! I invited acouple of my coworkers to come out that day and they enjoyed theirselves as well ( their first time). Will be back soon...4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMbest in dcThis is the 2nd time I have been here. Love love this place. I would come here ever Sunday if I could. It a very good place to come with friends.

Kept the mimosas coming for 3 hours :)4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect brunch in DCI chose this place for brunch when we were visiting DC based on a "top 10 brunch" list that I found online. These lists are subjective so I keep an open mind. Well the Beacon did not disappoint! In a hotel in a Dupont Circle neighborhood, I checked it out for drinks on Friday night just to get a feel for the vibe. All locals, no tourists in sight so I figured if the happy hour scene was like that then the brunch was safe. CORRECT!. The brunch crowd was a mix of classy families and church going types, with plenty of stylish college kids mixed in. Food was excellent, hot and never ran out even though it was buffet style. Champagne included in price which was nice.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place for brunch. NothingNice place for brunch. Nothing overwhelmingly spectacular as far as food selection, but quality food, friendly service and a reasonable price. 3rd time here, and will definitely come back again.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, this trip to BeaconAs usual, this trip to Beacon was great! The food was very good. They re-organized the buffet to improve the flow and they had nice seasonal choices. Our waiter, Ahmed, was very attentive and kept our glasses filled with mimosas. We will definitely be back again and again.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAt first we were seated inAt first we were seated in the conference room, a bit of a disappointment. We asked to be moved and were able to sit in the main dining room which was beautiful.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here for Easter Brunch.Went here for Easter Brunch. Their normal Sunday brunch has unlimited mimosas, champaign, and bloody marys so we got these as well. The food was plentiful and fresh. There was a great variety, like a good brunch should have, of breakfast, lunch, and dessert items which was a nice change from many of the brunches. The place was packed which was good to see since a lot of places were open for brunch this day but didn't have near the amount of people as this place had.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my first time at theIt was my first time at the Beacon Bar & Grill, and I love it.

The food was delicious, we didnt have to wait for our table and the service was excellent.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen living in DC for a littleBeen living in DC for a little over a year and Easter Brunch was among the best brunch I've had so far in the area. The assortment was outstanding, including the omelet station that had well over 20 different ingredients. The dessert bar was also outstanding. Just thinking about it makes me salivate!!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my favorite placeThis is my favorite place for brunch in all of DC. I go all the time, and always get a prompt to review my experience. I fill it out every time just so people know this place is a must for Sunday brunch.

The service was attentive bu not bothersome the food was god and reasonably priced. Although the front of the restaurant might have a more vibrant vibe, we were seated in the main dining area where it was quite and conversation was easy. I would recommend it for lunch and am curious to go back and try their dinner service.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to go back!Wow - I had been at a social function and enjoyed the meal - so went back the next day for dinner with friends - it was great. Going back soon!3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAbundanceIt's impossible to leave the Beacon hungry after a Sunday brunch. Respectable selection, made to order omelets and the bottomless mimosas/bloody marys/champagne make it an exceptional value. Great place to bring a group to celebrate, as I did for my birthday.2/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!Enjoyed our dinner and the piano music - great evening.1/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
