It's nice to have a "grown-up"
It's nice to have a "grown-up" restaurant on this side of campus, a nice alternative to fast food and bar food. Very good food, perfect portion sizes, salads and sandwiches are reasonably priced for the quality. The pulled pork taco salad is my favorite. If you want one of their awesome booths for lunch, be sure to reserve ahead, as they book up fast.

We had a large group in the
We had a large group in the private room right off the dining room. Great decor and really comfy seating. The service was top notch and the food was fantastic. I will be back for the walleye appetizer. 3 in our group got the flat iron steak and said it was awesome. The "Red Rita" cockatail was a hit!

We tried Beacon Public House
We tried Beacon Public House on a whim and were really happy with our experience. The food is excellent, and the service was great. It's not located in an area well-known for a lot of great restaurants, but I'd suggest trying it out.

We enjoyed a nice light dinner
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.

Good spot for a quick bite
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.

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.
