Surprising find. Good food, good prices, live music on a Friday night was a nice treat. Would go back.

First disappointing experience. Despite multiple open tables in upper patio, we were seated on the new lower patio by ourselves. The hostess sat us at a table with seats that were missing cushions which required us to exchange the chairs at our table for other chairs (the hostess had left immediately so wasn’t able to help or change our table). Because there was nobody else there, there also wasn’t a QR code with the menu. While nice, it also meant we were far away for our server and that led to lots of delays and forgotten items - had to ask for silverware and plates, no water, etc. Usually they have been very accommodating but we were told chef refused to put a meatball on the children’s pasta even when we stayed we would be fine with an up charge (doesn’t make sense as there is a normal entree with meatballs so it’s not like we were asking for something extravagant. Overall, we essentially were abandoned on the lower patio and service was sub-par.

This is a great place for outdoor dining. Thanks to COVID, we haven’t dined indoors yet. They serve good food and the service is extremely friendly. We love going there as they make us feel so welcome. Highly recommended.

It was great great. We had a great time. I didn’t like the pasta but also, it was gluten free pasta so, there’s nothing the Chef can do about it, I guess. But overall a great place. We will repeat soon.

Service great. Nice setup inside for social distancing. Was a cold nite so we were not outside but looked like nice setups. Food selections good - short rib gnocchi and Hong Kong noodles with chicken. Also had Buffalo cauliflower, which had a great flavor but cauliflower cooked a tad too long. Portions generous - enough to bring home. Solid wine selection and portion size options.

The appetizer spinach dip was mediocre, not what we were expecting (way too cheesy for us) I had the wedge salad with steak tips. The steak tips were perfection to say the least they were probably the best steak tips Ive ever had however the wedge salad needed some work. The main issue was the extraordinary amount of blue cheese salad dressing. The salad was made up of mostly dressing which ruined it for me. Everything else was fine. Id actually recommend this restaurant but Id advise to order the dressing on the side! My husband got a cheeseburger, very sloppy and difficult to eat but the taste was delicious.
The bill was lower than what we normally pay for a dinner anywhere else.

Had dinner here yesterday. Food was ok but definitely overproduced for the quantity and quality that you get. Had to send steak tips back since they came out rare although medium well was ordered.

Service seemed to rush everything out at once while we were still picking off of the charcuterie board we had ordered as an app. May have just been an off night but didn’t meet the level of service I would’ve expected for the prices they charge for standard American food.

We were celebrating a confirmation with family they were very accommodating we had a table of 10 they did happen to have a three-piece band that night Which made it hard to chat with the family but would’ve enjoyed on a date night. Food was good service good

This is specific to their Easter Brunch, but we also ate there just after they reopened earlier this year and similar comments apply. Good food, excellent service and a great atmosphere. We were very happy they have been able to ride out the pandemic and reopened. Outdoor dining last year was a good experience too.

This was our first visit to Beacons. The outdoor dining setup was good and there was plenty of space between the tables indoors. The food was outstanding! We can't wait to go back to try the charcuterie board. The bolognese was excellent, as was the short rib sandwich. We will be back; this may become part of our regular "go to" rotation.

The service was great and loved that no one was inside to eat, had the place basically to ourselves during this pandemic. Feel so bad for restaurants but nervous to eat inside with lots of people
Food fair, but reasonably priced.
