    Fish tacos contained very little fish. Burger had to be sent back because it was too rare and we ordered medium. The fried cheese curds were good and service was good.

    Overall it was decent. The hummus appetizer was minimal. Seemed like they opened a mini hummus and gave you 10 veggies to dip for $12. Not a great value. The burger anc nachos were great!

    Nachos were overdone, a small portion of pork provided. Strawberry chicken salad was fair but only three small slices of chicken provided. Not happy with this portion size for $17.

    The staff was very pleasant but clearly not enough of them My salmon was a bit dry, the sauce on the meatball app was not simmered enough, flavors not developed. Flour tortillas were used with the fish tacos when we specifically asked for gluten free for my gluten intolerant husband. So not great

    The staff were very helpful and incredibly attentive! The "overnight oats w/ berries" provided a good start to my day. For my next stop at Beacon Public House, I will definitely choose one of the egg dishes.

    The service was not bad but the lack of waiters was really sad. We waited 20 mins just for water another 10 mins for drinks only because they were truly short staffed.Our waiter was very nice and the food very good.

    My group was expecting a nice dinner that was worth the price. We ended up with a server who would disappear for 20 minutes at a time and it took forever to get drinks and food delivered. The restaurant was empty and we were still there for over 2 hours, mostly waiting. Some of my group said that their food was good. I got the turkey burger and it was very dry and tasted very wrong. Would not eat here again.

    The food was quite expensive considering portion size I ordered a strawberry salad and there was literally maybe one strawberry sliced up in it and only enough dressing for maybe a third of my salad. Morning, same issue portion size was tiny for the super high cost

    we had the private dining room which was great for our group of 10. The servers were great but things were slow ... I think they were overworked. The food was hit and miss ... definitely stick with the pub type food ... the more foodie stuff is not their expertise Location was good post basketball game at Williams Arena

    We made a reservation, we sat at 7pm, with no water at the table; it took some time for us to have water in our glasses. We order everything when the server came to greet us, and yet we got our cocktails 45mins later, this is when we were already done with our meals. Waiter never came back after our meal to see if everything was okay, we asked for our check at the bar since she did not visit the table, the waiter then comes and leaves our check without saying anything to us not even a thank you for joining us.

    It was impossible to make a reservation via the Beacon/Graduate Hotel website. Had to call the hotel front desk 3 times to connect with the restaurant, but no one at the restaurant answered. Eventually had to go through open table. Ordered soup, which was good, but arrived lukewarm.

    had a really bad experience here this week. I've been 3 other times with fine experiences. this one though put a bad taste in my mouth for how the business is run. unfortunate the one bad experience will likely cause me to not return. we had a reservation, but weren't seated for 15 minutes past it once I requested an open table I could see. however, they weren't staffed appropriately for the evening to handle the customer load and we were never served or had anyone come by within the 15 minutes we sat there waiting. ended up leaving and going else where on the fly on a busy night on campus for sure. unfortunate :(

    I have coming to thaythrough numerous ownerships. They still have not bothered to identify the events going on at the University of Minn. In this case it was the Wisconsin badgers ( duh that should be a big crowd) and the staffing was completely overwhelmed. You also lost an overworked Bartender who according to others had been on for 7 straight days. Either way you were grossly unprepared and this more the norm than the exception. My two customers were very unimpressed with the staffing. To my point- we sat from 6:30 to 7:15 and were never waited on. Sounds unbelievable but that is fact. To most business owners we long time ago realized a few additional $ for additional staff will generate more-more- more than enough revenue to justify additional staff. We weren’t even allowed to spend one dime when I expected to spend in excess of $100. THIS NOT A PROBLEM WITH STAFF-THIS IS A PROBLEM WITH MANAGEMENT. A VERY DISAPPOINTED LONT TIME GOPHER FAN.

    We very much enjoyed our brunch on Sunday before the basketball game. I would have given service a 5 but the food was slow. We had to rush a bit through eating and then one in our party had to stay back to get the bill paid. I am sure we will be back but will try to allow even more time than 1 &1/2 hours.

    I would still recommend Beacon, although my experience there was sub par. I ordered the ribeye during this trip, and it came out grossly over cooked. My medium was a tough, livery gray inside. The server (who was excellent, btw) had the cook remake mine, but unfortunately even that one was cooked improperly. As the restaurant was closing I didn’t have a chance to get yet another one. So that effectively ruined my meal.
