Diner Reviews
  • "Seriously, they are fabulous! When ordering a sandwich however, be sure to state "no salad" otherwise they charge you $2."

  • "The only complaint that I could think of for this restaurant - and this was stretching it - was that there were screens showing all sorts of different sports events on over the bar. Because the lighting in the restaurant itself was so low, the bright neon of the screens showed very bright and it was distracting. Overall, the food was excellent, and our server, Patrick, was great. I would recommend the Heart of Darkness cocktail or the Modern Mule to anyone."

  • "We chose Beacon Public house so we could avoid the beer drinking crowded bars. It was great to be able to make a reservation. The nachos were fabulous, the sliders were tasty and the cocktails were great. Service was a little slow and oil used for the onion rings was old."

  • "I made reservations for 4:45pm for my wife and I. This was our first time going there. We were nut guests of the attached Commons Hotel so we had to park two blocks away. We were seated right away but at a table directly next to a large group instead of a booth that was open. It was awkward as we were practically on top of them and by the end of dinner it had grown to over 30. People were literally sitting inches away from our table so not quiet or romantic. The Food: Simply put Amazing. 3 course menu with arugula salad, braised shirt rubs, chocolate cheeses cake with raspberry compote filling. . Executed perfectly the ribs were fork tender.. Heaven. Our waitress was very attentive and pleasant. We will definitely go back soon."

  • "Very classy and very comfortable - not just another drab hotel restaurant. And wonderfully, not some sports bar. (Applebee's is right next door for that mood) Eclectic menu! I had a smoked salmon appetizer plate that I turned into an entree following a delicious (and hearty-sized) bowl of the daily soup. I highly recommend both staying in the Commons and dining at the Beacon Public House!"

  • "Went to Open Table to see what was open on Christmas Eve for my family of 5 visiting from Iowa. Wanted something that had some city flare but not the ridiculous price tag to go along with it. Never even heard of Beacon Public House before I saw it on OT and decided to give it a chance. It was perfect! Great unique atmosphere, good drinks, good food (mine was a tad colder than I'd like when it came out but the flavor was astronomical) and very friendly staff. Would highly recommend if you're looking to impress a family from out of town without whipping out the pots and pans."

  • "My friends and I wanted to go somewhere new for Christmas Eve after having a bad experience last year. This year was great! We went to the Beacon Public House and are glad we did. The food is outstanding, creative, and fresh- a special Christmas menu was available, but we all ordered off the main menu. Everything was outstanding from the turkey burger to perfectly grilled rare salmon. The place is large, but intimate with super comfy booths. We are all glad to have found this place and will definitely be back with more friends."

  • "This was our first visit to The Beacon Public House. Likes: very comfortable booths that kept the noise level down; attentive, friendly and knowledgeable waiter; nice selection of beers, wines and specialty cocktails; tasty small plates and apps - definitely an upgrade from standard pub fare. Dislikes: while the drinks were reasonably priced, the foods items were pricey considering the small portions. The chicken wings we ordered were very good, but they looked like they were taken from a Cornish game hen! The Korean bbq short ribs were quite flavorful (and a little tough) but the portion was smaller than we expected. I would come back for happy hour when the apps are discounted but probably not for dinner."

  • "Get the truffle fries! No sense messing around with plain old fries! I do wish that they would have a vegetarian soup. For a place with that small of a menu there's no reason they should have 2 soups and neither of them are vegetarian."

  • "Staff do not refllect the expertise of the prices charged."

  • "I took a chance on the BPH for my wedding anniversary dinner based on the recommendations from Open Table. There were four in our group and I had made a note in my Open Table reservation about this being an anniversary celebration. The hostess and waitress were aware of the celebration and made it a very special time for us. Everyone enjoyed their food. Two of us had swordfish: one blackened, the other not, and both of us felt that it was prepared correctly and tasted great. They have valet parking if you choose, which made for easy access. We also liked the modern decor and comfortable booth seating."

  • "Good spot for a quick bite before a Gopher game. Good food & good beer. And you can make a reservation, so no waiting for a table and missing the start of the game."

  • "We enjoyed a nice light dinner on the patio on what will likely be one of the last pleasant evenings of the year. My date enjoyed the Golden Beet Salad, while I went with the trio of Codfish Tacos and a Summit Saga. Nice presentation, decent pricing, attentive service. The patio was enjoyable as there was very little traffic at the hotel. Of course, getting to the hotel is a challenge with all of the construction, one-way streets, and students. Trying to figure out parking is absurd due to all of the restrictions -- just use the Washington Street Ramp a block away (just realize that the entrance is off of a dead end street!). I'm sure that visiting parents would enjoy the Beacon."
