A word from Beacon Street Tavern
Located at Brookline’s border to Boston, this relaxed kitchen and bar offers American cuisine, helpful service and welcoming atmosphere. This woody, spacious beautifully-lit bar and grill emits aura of cozy neighborliness (with a lively outdoor patio to boot). Its menu where the emphasis is on quality and value, is one that ably walks the line between comfort food and contemporary creations. The Nitecap Lounge, a separate room with its own bar is the perfect venue for a private functions or a just a relaxing drink on the weekends.

Beacon Street Tavern reviews from OpenTable diners
  • The food here is excellent.

    Dined on 4/13/2013
    The food here is excellent. The veggie burger was house made and yum--not a given for vegetarians in Boston. They are closing for renovations, which is good, as the place looks like a college frat house. Hopefully when they reopen, the surroundings will match the excellence of the food.

    We had a wonderful meal at Beacon Street Tavern. The Bison Bolognese with Balsamic Glaze was the standout of the night. Without the same rancor of a previous post on Tripadvisor, I concur that the quacamole has too much lime/lemon for our taste but didn't stop us from eating every bite. We had a great table in an oversized velvet banquette where we felt somehow like we had slid through the looking glass. I recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a very good meal in a pleasant environment. Parking was easy on the street.

    Food was good, not great. I had the guacamole to start with and it tasted like they had put 85 lemons in it and that just blew my palate out for the rest of the meal. The service was fine, although the waitress seemed purposefully stand off ish. The restaurant itself is very cool inside, and I like the dim lighting, but overall I would only go back here to grab a drink. Probably not to eat.

    Even with less than stellar service during this visit, BST is still one of our favorite local places. The food always delivers, drinks and wine are great, and the ambiance is perfect for a cozy fall evening out.

    Portions were very small. Food good. Did not feel like a customer. Felt like we were intruding. It would help of staff smiled, or at leat did not grimace? The waitress clapping when a large party left (she smiled then)went along with the whole staff vibe of not wanting people there. Vey few diners there. Staff defintiley is clear about not wanting to be there; miserable. Hostess checking smart phone and biting fingernails not a plus... Bad vibe.

    Brownie dessert took 20 minutes to reach the table and was less than memorable -- dry, no presentation -- just an unattractive brown square with a scoop of ice cream on top of it.

    Great place to bring a friend for one of those "haven't seen you in awhile" conversations. Drinks are great at a price where you feel free to order for that good time for a long talk. Food is plentiful and tasty. wait staff are friendly and non-intrusive. You don't feel rushed to get up and give them the table. You can't lose at this place. Take time to go.

    This is a nice place to go for dinner or drinks. The food was good and the prices were just. They have a good selection of wines and beers and a nice environment. The service was a bit slow though. We made reservations and still had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. The waitress seemed to have too much on her plate and took a long time to come to our table. She got our drinks and disappeared for a good amount of time before returning to take our order. She never brought bread to the table which we had to ask for when our food came.

    Good solid meals - interesting, tasty, filling. Burgers are cooked to perfection. Hummus and cheese plate is lovely. Service is a bit lacking. We've been many times before and will likely return if we are in the neighborhood. Not really worth a special trip, but a good neighborhood staple. Outdoor seating is a major plus when the weather is nice!

    The hostess was lovely. The waiter, the worst. He was rude and after taking the order, never returned to the table. As it was a warm evening, when we asked for more water, we had to find the waiter, he retorted by saying he would get back to us. He NEVER did. WE finally asked the hostess for water and she kindly brought the water to us. I wouldn't go back.

    The food was good, but the wait staff was just slow, and we saw no indication that her table load was high. It took longer than it should have to be greeted, she forgot to tell us about the specials, and she forgot to put in the order for the entree for the couple who was next to us. I'd give it one more chance, but not on a Saturday night.

    Made a last minute reservation here on NYE. It's cozy and has a nice ambiance. It's just a little too dark to see the menu and all the cool things on the walls. But, overall, it was a very comfortable place for a meal. The food was interesting and tasty. My cocktail was a little sour, but refreshing. The service was great; friendly host and attentive waitress. All in all, I'd go back.
