We were recommended to go to the Beacon by two different set of friends- they both said it was fantastic food. We will tell our friends of our experience and that the Beacon has definitely changed. When we arrived, the bar had a band playing metal/alternative music that was so loud we couldn't hear anything. Then they piped in music in the dining room ontop of the metal band playing. It was so LOUD! Once we were seated by a nice window seat, we noticed all the dead flies in the window sill. We kindly asked the waitress to clean the window of the dead flies. She was a perturbed by having to brush the dead carcuses onto the floor beneath us. Flies were out of control, had to brush them away the whole dinner. I think we killed 2-3 during the meal as well. Seafood linguine was delivered lukewarm and full of sand. It was one of the worst dining experiences we have had! Not only totally overpriced food for what was served but the overall cleaniness and dining experience were so disappointing. We would never return even if for a free meal. Poor service from servers too.
Perhaps the Beacon was once a great restaurant in its day but on this Beautiful afternoon it was a complete disgusting and disappointing dining experience. I'm sure for drinks at the bar it would be fun but if you're looking for a nice dinner to sit down at, keep on travelling down the road PAST the Beacon.
