    I really enjoy Beacon but I will say the steak I had two weeks ago was outstanding not so much the last two times this week. Has there been a change?

    Sunday everting, long weekend. Not crowded. Service was very good. Small wine menu but found something to our liking. The charcuterie board was our appetizer … very nice; green salad … large enough to be shared. We ordered the steak & frites and the sea bass. Both were excellent. A very nice evening.

    Beacon Restaurant in downtown Oakville on Lakeshore is a great restaurant. Ambience is great with a nicely decorated main dining room, bar & lounge area and a large outdoor dining patio area. Menu items are competitively-priced with an excellent selection of appetizers, salads and entrees. We have dined there several times trying several different main entrees including the Beacon burger and fries...all were tasty and delicious. Service has been been attentive and very good. Staff are friendly and engaging.

    Inconsistent mussels. First two time they were amazing: plump, good amount of broth and amazing grilled bread. Last two times they were shriveled the size of a raisin and no broth. Cool place to hang out and drink, great service, but I would not order the mussels again.

    Waiter was very rude and condescending towards my group of friends. We didn’t order appetizers or sparking water so I think he thought we weren’t big spenders snd gave up on us. Restaurant was stifling hot too snd the waiter blamed the patio door that kept opening and closing. So many other complaints about this particular waiter. But food was great.

    We went to Beacon for my birthday and were pleased with everything from the excellent and friendly service, to the delicious food! Even the customers were friendly! We have eaten out a lot in the last few months and Beacon has provided one of the best overall experiences so far! We will be back....thank you!

    We have had dinner several times at Beacon since it opened. It is one of our favourite casual restaurants. Very nicely decorated with indoor dining room, bar area with seating and an expansive outdoor patio. Menu are varied with great options on appetizers, salads and entrees. We have tried several entrees...all very good. Service had generally been good.

    Love this fun restaurant being in our town. Great ambience but the service is not good at all. I do give a pass for the industry as likely all new staff, etc. However, been here a number of times now in both small and large groups. They never come back to check in, seem uninterested and aren’t very knowledgeable about menu, wine. It seems the friendliest people are the hostess and the bartender . Hope they fix things!

    I really enjoyed the food, cocktails and ambiance. I was a bit disappointed that the fries we ordered came after we were finished our meals. I don't know if it was an error in the kitchen or staff but the timing was off and there was no effort made to take it off the bill (30.00) which I found not the best service when it was their error. Other than that it was great. I frequent Seasons which is great and service is always great there.

    This relatively new restaurant, which opened about two months ago, is a great place to dine. The ambience and decor is lovely. The restaurant has a sizeable great outdoor patio dining area. We have dined at Beacon several times. Service has been consistently very good. The servers are friendly and efficient. Excellent menu selections and options for appetizers, salads and entrees which we have had including salmon, veal schnitzel, roasted chicken breast and a "loaded" Beacon Burger w' Fries...all entrees have been delicious!

    Food was alright but not fair with the price. We tried the steak frites, burger, sea bass, veal and ravioli and while they were alright, the vegetables were unseasoned and just plainly boiled and served, everything else wasn’t worth it. Cocktails weren’t good, wine was alright, service was really good but the surrounding staff just looked like a mess as the aircon stopped working at one point and they congregated around it while it continued to make a blaring sound distributing our dinner, bugs were flying all around us and the food.
