Contemporary Southern
The Beacon Butcher Bar is a labor of love from Tina Houston, owner of Reid’s Café & Catering Co., established here in the High Country since 1999. The Beacon is located in the heart of Boone, NC adjacent to the iconic Water Wheel. Just as we value beautiful ingredients in our catering, The Beacon adheres to a similar message.

In the kitchen, we value the fashion from scratch details as small as the aiolis and dressings we use, to the housemade desserts and pastries, cured and smoked meats, and naturally fermented pickles. Behind the bar, we strive for innovation and discovery from our unique and inspiring cocktails. We work within the seasons of the Blue Ridge to present a deliberate and thoughtful menu. We love the intentional, the specific, the well-cared-for.

Respectively, our market offers a unique selection of local goods and treats. From our featured cloister honey to housemade single origin chocolates, we present the craft and exceptionality of local, artisanal talent.

    After scurrying around for a parking place, I was greeted with a friendly smile and was shown where my wife was seated. The waitress was friendly, helpful and helped celebrate our 49th anniversary. The meal was fabulous and the whole experience was a memory I’ll always remember. I would fully recommend this restaurant.

    Our experience at The Butcher Bar was amazing!! Carter our server steered us well in our selection (too many to choose from). Both of our meals were memorable and that’s saying something for two foodies- you must try it!!

    This was our first visit to Boone and to The Beacon. Emma, our wait staff member, did an excellent job of outline the specials and providing recommendations. The food and service were both excellent.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The food and service were excellent. We also enjoyed the additive bonus of the live jazz band.

    We had a great meal, excellent service and enjoyed the live music. Everything we ate was super good with nice presentation. Very nice wines too! The servers were so friendly and helpful. If we lived in Boone, The Beacon would be on our regular "go to" list.
