    Really wished this had been a more pleasant experience, but the noise level coming through the lobby to the restaurant is horrendous -- more like a pinball parlor than a restaurant. The restaurant is not particularly relaxing, with constant sports tv streaming. The menu is lackluster, and nothing tasted very appealing -- over greasy fish and chips, flatbread and spreads is just a grocery store pita bread cut into triangles, not even warmed up. Staff disappears for long stretches into some back room area, leaving diners to get up and search for ketchup ourselves, etc.

    I made an Open Table reservation for this breakfast, but also had a walk-in lunch at the Beacon the day before. Both meals were really good. The service was friendly and efficient. Hot dishes came out hot. Everything was seasoned nicely. I had the soup of the day and the Brussels sprouts salad for lunch and the next morning I had the steel cut oatmeal and fruit bowl for breakfast.

    Our server, Morgen was absolutely perfect! The food was middle of the road and probably not worth the money. I would definitely go back for something else to eat because I’ve had other meals that were better there.

    Our meal took a very long time to come out (tables sat after us were served and left before us). The server was nice, they didn’t charge us for the food since it took so long. The restaurant was also very cold (kept jackets and winter hats on). It was chilly outside but was very cold in the restaurant itself.

    Really cold in there and then the food came out cold. We have had good food there in the past but not this time. A little disappointed as we were looking forward to a nice meal and drink before the game.

    Quiet Sunday morning at the restaurant. Corn chowder had very little corn and was quite broth-like. No dipping sauce for sweet potato fries. Rueben was so-so. Service was fine. Not easy to find a restaurant close to campus.

    I will start out and say that there was a volleyball and hockey event, so the restaurant was very busy. Things started out great, we ordered and received our drinks. Then we ordered food and an hour later we received our food. Unacceptable. It was almost like the cooks decided to take a break after the crowd began to thin out. The server tried to handle the situation, so it wasn’t her fault. The manager made a token gesture and compensated for the wings we ordered for $12 on $130 bill. Time to find a new spot to have dinner before gopher sporting events.

    First, I was looking for a reservation in downtown/north loop after the afternoon matinee at the Orpheum. and Open Table gave me a place on 615 Washington. I thought “oh a new place on the loop!”. It was not in downtown nor the loop, it is on campus, and the Gophers were playing hockey and volley ball at 7:00. Of course parking was horrible as there were two games fans were getting tuned up for. The place was roaring with fans getting ‘lubed’ for the game and someone had taken our reserved table. The staff kicked them out and seated us. We could not hear each other to talk about the broadway show we had just watched. Service was slow as it was packed. I offered my date to ‘walk out’ as this was not what we were planning. She chose to “stick it out”. My drink was served in a plastic cup. I ordered soup and my date ordered SP fries. After a long wait (again, place was packed) the food arrived. I did not get soup but SP fries like my date. And they were already cool. Obviously the kitchen or the expeditor was overwhelmed. Considering how slow service was and how loud the place was, I told the server that I did not need the soup anymore. My date went to the bathroom but with the tables askew for the pregame parties, she was caught in cul de sacs trying to escape the restaurant to search for the restrooms. Which were apparently in the hotel, with no guide markers. She finally found them only to have them locked. She waited for the person who locked it to come out, but after waiting for a while, she came to realize no one was coming out. She went to the host desk and they were busy. Finally someone asked if what she needed and when she explained offered her a key. Apparently the keep the bathrooms locked. The hamburger was OK but the reuben was dry and the corned beef was thin deli meat that appeared microwaved. We were happy to leave the place for the fans of the games. I mostly blame Open Table for sending me 3 miles from ‘the loop’.

    The Beacon Public House is an excellent restaurant and I highly recommend it to others. The food is excellent! I stayed for the weekend at The Graduate hotel and this restaurant is located in the hotel. Everything I ordered was fantastic and the menu had a nice variety of choices. The drinks were 5 stars including the margarita I ordered. I do recommend making reservations as it does get busy especially after MN Gophers games.

    Although the ambiance was nice and the service staff were nice, the food and timeliness of the food be drinks was extremely slow. When you consider the coat for the food was unusually high for Minneapolis, I would consider the overall value as average at best. In short, it is a restaurant where you need to be ready with all drink and food order when server first greets you as it may be another 15 minutes until they revisit you. Also, once you receive food, I would advise that you request your check at the same time otherwise you may be waiting about another 10-20 minutes. It took us 1 hour 45 minutes for to have breakfast.

    We loved the menu. I had the crab stuffed walleye which was incredible. It was paired with a rich creamy risotto. Defiantly filling. I was sad that I forgot my to go box in the hotel room. It was that good. My husband had the bacon wrapped pork medallions also amazing. It was the perfect spot to grab dinner before seeing a show on campus. I would highly recommend.

    The Egg White Omelet was absolutely delicious! What a great combination of spinach, avocado, and goat cheese - and it was massive! Our server brought over a wonderful collection of locally-made hot sauce, which added even more flavor to an already flavorful dish. I would order that again without hesitation!
