Got there exactly at 6 which was opening time for dinner. Already tables were filling up but we were able to get a porch table facing the water. Our server arrived shortly after we sat down which was a good thing because he got so...More

The Beacon has the best view, the best food and the nicest waitstaff in Sag Harbor. Me, I always order the pasta and lobster...but everything is great...fresh, delicious and beautiful.

Had dinner with some friends and arrived early - really nice bartender makes a good Manhattan. Had steamed mussels to start - really tasty - followed by truly the best pork Milanese I've ever tasted. Homemade ice cream for dessert was also good.

I've enjoyed the food and the view many times over the years and did again recently. However, it seems like it's gotten noticeably more expensive this year. I guess the same can be said of other places in the Hamptons as well.

It's all about the sunset. If you can catch a promising sunset,and are lucky enough to get a table the porch you are on vacation without the travel hassles.The food is always good and it is a low key environment.

Had a fab dinner on the outdoor deck on a Wednesday evening. Great cocktails and wine. Both our dinners were delicious: Lobster rigatoni and Fluke special. Restaurant sits right next to a marina, so lots to look at, plus great spot for catching the sunset....More

It was a foggy evening, so the water views weren't in play. The food and service had to stand on its own merits. Both were OK. Acceptable but not extraordinary. Plus one of our party ordered the bouillabaisse. While the taste was very good, there...More

Food is very good, standard seafood offerings. However, with long waits for tables and limited bar space, we tend to only go to the Beacon on non-peak hours. Definitely avoid on the weekends.

Description
We opened The Beacon up, way back in 2000. It's been a great success since Day 1, only growing better with the start of each new summer. We've learned a lot along the way about what it takes to make a summertime-only Hamptons restaurant move and groove. As the light on the East End changes and a new season approaches, we are reinvigorated by the beauty our region provides us. The menu, the wine, and some of the faces may change every year, but one thing never does: our full attention to you.
