I have to admit that I have avoided The Beacon Room primarily because of its policy of not accepting reservations, even though I have gotten very good recommendations about it. I just envisioned long lines or hanging out at the bar waiting to be seated, and at this time in my life, that is not my thing. One early evening... More

Excellent spot for lunch. Upscale food and good service. Excellent clam chowder and most other soups. Always have daily specials.

Each year I fear the magic might have disappeared. But no! The Beacon is still a pretty place that serves excellent fresh food with panache. Service is both friendly and excellent. Everyone there seems to be smiling. I was after my gorgeous salad and grilled salmon.

The place is very pricey and the food is far from what is displayed on the menu.....no salads served with dinner and only one roll....the only thing large is the bill

I came here with a friend for lunch. Really adorable. The food was good, and came quickly to the table. We both had the curry chicken salad sandwich, and my friend had been there before and recommended the chicken club. Our waitress was a bit apathetic, and seemed a bit put-off when we weren't ready to order the first time... More

Tucked away on a busy side street lading to popular Skaket Beach in Orleans, this restaurant offers great food, service and ambiance. Bright and airy, we stopped at Beacon for a late lunch at 2:30 on a Sunday on off season Cape Cod. My wife had a seafood special which was a fantastic dish of Cod fish, salad vegetables. I... More

Cutely decorated for Christmas but the low-light ambiance necessitated the iPhone flashlight for menu reading. Well-meaning staff brought over a flashlight after we had already ordered and returned our menus. Ordered the sole, the duck and the shrimp/scallops. Duck was a bit bland but the sauce was good. The shrimp/scallop dish was flavorful and on a bed of polenta with... More

We headed for the Beacon Room on a busy Saturday night. Since it is "off season", they were able to accommodate us at the last minute. The place was busy, the service a bit on the slow side, but worth the wait. Wonderful seafood, moderate prices, charming atmosphere. Highly recommend.
