Thank you Andrea, Aness and Tina for friendly accommodations
Christine is always the best of managers
Food was good but a little speedy. Our bottle of wine was Bret but we didn’t send it back. Wishing we would have.
Enjoyed. First time and would return. Comfortable venue. Nice selection of food and beverages. Leave room for dessert---the cookies are great and just enough to satisfy something sweet after a meal.
Very nice dinner before going to listen to Jazz music
Great brunch. Good selection. Server was friendly and attentive on New Years morning. Good location on the river.
It was a good location for watching NYE fireworks on the river. We ate, walked outside and watched. Nice atmosphere. Nice food, service was polite and a little slow, but it was NYE. I will try other locations next time.
super friendly service, delicious food (roast chicken was great), somewhat small portions but worth it
Truly a hidden gem! Super cute and cozy! Delicious food as well!
Had a wonderful dinner here on New Year’s Eve! The food was outstanding and we loved the wine list too. Service and ambience were impeccable. Will be back!
Wonderful place- great atmosphere food and service
Very adorable space, with impeccable service and delicious food. Will definitely be back and have already recommended to others!
I have always had great experiences at Beacon Tavern in the past. I usually go for lunch with clients or after work cocktails with friends. On NYE I brought my family for an early dinner because we had theater tickets afterwards. I thought we could get a burger or a salad then move along. I was forced to put down a credit card on OpenTable for this "coveted" table. When we arrived for our 5:30 pm res, the restaurant was empty, but we were seated at the worst table in the house, near where all the bored servers were congregating and the bathroom. I asked to move to a booth or banquet, but was told that the tables were all spoken for. By the time we wrapped dinner, only one of the tables was taken. In addition, The Beacon employed a typically price-gauge NYE menu. My 18 year old son ordered the roasted chicken, expecting a generous amount of meat. He got two wings, and was voraciously eating off the other plates, which also were unremarkable. Super disappointed to say the least. I theorized that maybe because I reserved the table using a $50 OpenTable VIP credit, they decided to treat us like less-than. Either way, I won't be rushing back.
Ordered the fish and chips... delish!
Ordered the cappelletti... really really good! Wish there were more.
Ordered the sundae for dessert.... yum!
Booked a reservation before seeing a show. Reservations were made based on online recommendations, but our experience didn’t quite match what we read. Ambiance was awesome - but service felt like we were more of a nuisance when we asked simple questions. We opted for a drink and apps which we didn’t finish.
Romantic evening. Upscale "tavern". Will definitely be back.
Great service and ambiance, along with a much bigger than expected cocktail & wine list. Will definitely recommend!
Our waiter George was amazing!!!
Had the fish & chips, was extra crispy but not oily so still very good. Cappelletti was delish!!
Beacon Biscuits and a pimento cheese app were amazing. They do have items for kids however they are not on the menu.
Fish and chips like tempura
We had a great time!! Great wine, apps, food, service
Great restaurant! I ordered the butter burger and it was the best burger I ever had. The staff were nice too.
Met friends in town for Christmas shopping; was a very nice meal.
I have now been to Beacon's Tavern twice, and both times, the service was incredible and our food fantastic. But I also want to write a review that the restaurant was quiet enough that as a table of six, we were able to easily converse as a group. This is a problem I find in many restaurants where either the background music or the decor leads to a very loud environment where the joy of conversing with family and friends is lost. Thank you, Beacon's Tavern, for a wonderful evening.
Love the seasonal menu changes, but the service and atmosphere are consistently wonderful! We are in the neighborhood and if the prices were more moderate we'd be there a lot more often!
Great food. Professional service. Atmosphere is warm and sophisticated. Like all of Billy’s restaurants, this one is definitely a great place to go.
Great food and service. Will be visiting again
Thank you Lauren, Julie, Corey and Patrick
Great food, very good service. Price commensurate with location and quality.
Absolutely delightful. Unique beverages, creative food, lovely atmosphere and great staff. Interesting flavor profiles.
Wonderful on all counts!
George the waiter is the best!
Lovely . Wonderful food great service
Beacon Tavern never fails to satisfy our need for an all-around wonderful dining experience. Brunch is exceptional and the pastry menu which is seasonal and rotates is SO worth the carbs!! Lovely breakfast and lunch options; my husband loves the Reuben-inspired eggs Benedict and the omelettes are always perfect. We also appreciate the friendly attentive service and Hannah who took care of us at this visit was tops!! Looking forward to our next visit.
From the initial greeting by Lauren, who was quick to accommodate and understand that my guests were running late on a busy Thurs night; to Alex at the bar who made the perfect Cocktail to Kami; who provided an unbelievable dining experience; the Beacon Tavern is a must when you are in Chicago. The food was spectacular, the ambiance charming; simply put i don’t think you can go wrong. I’ll be back for sure. Thanks Beacon Tavern!!
Very good...had high top seating in bar, so a little noisy
Delightful experience! In not attending to be, we were a little high maintenance on the number in our party changing. The bartender and the hostess could not have been more accommodating, welcoming, and pleasant. Both the owner and the manager stopped by to genuinely engage to make our visit pleasant. Wait staff was superb. And food was yummy. A very big thumbs up.
Food is always wonderful and the service EXCELLENT. One of our favorite lunch spots!
decent food comes at a expensive price but a small amount. every good environment tho
Cozy tavern tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Michigan Avenue, lovely views ,great service...
