    Dinner for two on a Thursday night. Very limited menu. Entrees at $68 for a steak (plus a $9 surcharge for asking for vegetable instead of potatoes) and $48 for fish. Great service, nice ambience and nice wine options. 53 minutes from being seated to receiving entrees on a slow night. Steak was high quality and cooked to perfect doneness but incredibly salty (think country ham) and fish was over cooked to the point of being dry. I really want to like this place and will try again.

    We sat outside, waitress was VERY accommodating and prepared us a table with a cloth..great location overlooking the river (altho the proximity to train tracks was annoying when a train is working 3 blocks away) Waitress was quick and helpful, described off menu items, she was a real pro! Appetizer was great, salad was excellent (she split it for us so I would not be stuffed before main course) Date had salmon which she said was good. I had a a ribeye..im not a meat grader by any means..but it did not appear to be USDA prime. It was prepared to the correct temp, a little over seasoned. Dont get me wrong, it was a nice, big, juicy steak..but didnt WOW me at all for the price. A $70 steak should knock your socks off! The gratin potatoes were excellent as well. We will go back..its a nice place and nice location...a step WAY above "just going out to dinner". I feel some of our other restaurants in Cape have them beat if im craving a steak...I will DEFINEATELY give them another shot sometime...a GREAT STEAK is not the easiest thing to perfect 100% of the time!

    The eclipse experience was outstanding! It wasn’t crowded at all. We loved the view of the river. The employees were very friendly. We loved the fact that management gave the employees a break during the totality of the eclipse, so they could enjoy it also.

    Dining at Beacon 53 was an unforgettable experience. The panoramic view of the Mississippi River added a serene backdrop to an already exquisite meal. The ambiance of the restaurant, with its elegant decor and soft lighting, created a warm and inviting atmosphere that complemented the culinary delights served. Each dish was a testament to the chef's attention to detail and commitment to flavor. It's a gem worth visiting for anyone who appreciates fine dining with a view.

    Beacon 53 is such a delightful experience. Beautiful views and the food is amazing. I love the attention to detail; the servers really pay attention to every need. At our table, we selected the filet (amazing), fresh shrimp and pasta, fish special and creole crab cakes. All very excellent! We are planning our next visit.
