There was nothing good about the food or drinks. Steak tips had no flavor and the portion size was not enough for an adult (4 small pieces). The margarita was one of the worst I have had. I use better mixes at home. Don’t waste your time.

Pita chips were burned up. Cake tasted like old refrigerator. Waitress was great.

Solid meal with excellent service by our server, Jessica. Bartender very friendly and helpful as well. Twin filets were excellent. Greek and caesar salads were okay.

All was great. Food was delicious and the price is right. The only thing I found rare is that the waiter took my credit card with him, then 3 minutes later, came back with the machine to charge me so I could provide the tip which is ok, I mean he deserved the tip, however, why taking my credit card if he’s supposed to bring the machine to my table?

Superb service. Fast, efficient. Food was delicious. The short rib entree was excellent. The fish and chips were also great. They have changed the breading on the fish and chips. Now lighter. Superb.

Our waitress was fantastic!!! She was so responsive, positive, funny, gave great food insights. Give her a raise! Because of her we will go back and our friends who like in Walpole who have never been there will go again and bring friends!

We love Beacons and we’re thrilled that we had some nice weather to sneak in one last night of outdoor dining for the season. Beacons has always been so wonderfully accommodating to my family and great with my little kids. Thanks for keeping the patio cozy for us!

A good neighborhood find especially if you are gluten free. Nice GF menu and the servers make sure to bring those items separately. Servers very helpful and friendly.

Our large party (8) had a great experience at Beacon's! We were seated in a great booth to accommodate our group. The varied menu items allowed something for everyone and we all DEVOURED our meals. Everything was delicious and we felt well cared for by the staff. It was a fun atmosphere and we will definitely be back soon!

Didn’t expect to love this place as much as we all did! So happy to try it and support it and can’t wait to return. Great menu, food and drinks. Also, excellent service. Love the outside patio and heaters. Excellent addition to Route One. Much needed restaurant and let’s all support it - it deserves it!!

Very nice visit to Beacons on a Friday night. Excellent service and a visit to the table from the owner checking on us. Always impressive when that happens. I especially liked the note at the bottom of the menu that the chef is happy to work with vegans and tweak recipes. I’d love to see more of that at other places I dine. Will definitely return.

Our server was new, but was fine. I ordered iced tea, which looked strong, but had no taste. It took awhile to get lemon for it. My salad with grilled chicken was very nice, as was a short rib sandwich and bbq wings and Caesar salad. The fries, however, were limp and doughy. Dessert was a very nice crème brûlée. I would go again for the salad, but a roll would have been nice. The fries definitely need work.

Out with another couple after wine tasting and grabbed dinner. Food and service were great. One member of our party has a gluten allergy and had shrimp and gluten free pasta she said was some of the best she ever had. Good selection of draft beers and great burgers too. We will be back.

Not very impressed. Food was ok - my ravioli was overcooked. Drinks were good. Our server left midway through our visit. We were looking to place our order and we had to flag down another server who let us know he left. The bartender took our table over and was great and very attentive. I'm not sure why the original server left but it might have been a good idea to send someone else over to our table instead of us having to get someone to come over and figure out who should be waiting on us.

Super nice staff. Pretty good menu. Perfect location for two couples as this was in between us. We found it on open table and wanted a place not only in between but outdoors to enjoy a nice summer night with a pretty good menu. Menu on open table is slightly different. You might not want to NOT totally rely on the menu in open table.
