Delightful experience! In not attending to be, we were a little high maintenance on the number in our party changing. The bartender and the hostess could not have been more accommodating, welcoming, and pleasant. Both the owner and the manager stopped by to genuinely engage to make our visit pleasant. Wait staff was superb. And food was yummy. A very big thumbs up.
Food is always wonderful and the service EXCELLENT. One of our favorite lunch spots!
decent food comes at a expensive price but a small amount. every good environment tho
Cozy tavern tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Michigan Avenue, lovely views ,great service...
We love the Beacon Tavern! We have been here 3 times and it is always great! The food is awesome and the vibe is super!
Great ambience, superb hospitality, and tasty food! My husband and I arrived early and were celebrating a special occasion, but were waiting for the rest of our party (who arrived 40 minutes late). The entire staff from the hostess, bartender, and MOD were extremely friendly and accommodating to ensure we were comfortable and taken care of, despite our late party. Will definitely be back!
I was disappointed after making a reservation for regular tabletop seating to find that we were to be seated at a high top right next to the bar. It was virtually impossible to hear the conversation at table and instead of a single conversation, basically two separate conversations were necessary.
Very disappointed that my explicit request for a regular table was ignored. I think I will take a pass on Beacon Tavern next time and go to the Dearborn.
Food was extraordinary. Duck Breast was one of the best I have ever had. Special burgundy month Poussin with truffles was outstanding. Our first choice of wine, a reasonably priced Merlot was not available, surprising for a wine list that does not have many choices below $70. Offered us an alternative Zin that turned out to be off so in order to drink decently we had to fork out $90 for an excellent Sirah blend. Wine list could use some work on the American offerings at more affordable prices. When will restaurants stop charging ridiculous amounts for not so great wines?
Awesome, will go again on our next visit
The Beacon Tavern has a very interesting menu with something for everyone. The food was delicious and the ambiance was great too.
Greeted at the door by the owner and welcomed by the staff got us off to a great start. Very comfortable room with excellent and personal service. Steak and frites perfectly prepared and my wife enjoyed the redfish. Only regrets is not ordering a perfectly poured pint of Guinness.
First time at Beacon Tavern and it was fantastic. Great place to sit in a booth and eat lunch, hang out at the bar or grab lunch at a high top. Food choices satisfy everyone and what we ordered was fantastic. Highly recommend
Great location as well!
I had the half chicken sandwich not much chicken.
ha soup had white stuff floating on top. I asked what it and was told cream cheese. In my experience soup doesn’t come with cream cheese on top. Side salad very salty.
Cute place but won’t be going back
Thank you Allison and Julie for friendly service
Thank you Lauren and Corey for always make my time at Beacon Tavern a great experience
Keelie did a wonderful job of attending to our every need. Food was outstanding!
Definitely satisfied the foodie in me! The food was wonderful. Great service. Awesome location and atmosphere! Highly recommend!
Just the perfect end to a nice day!!!!
Squash soup was AMAZING!
Alaskan halibut was excellent / desert prepared to leave out one ingredient- such good service.
Nice cozy bar w spacious high tops
Just loved the place.
Wonderful service food! Lovely ambiance, especially on a cold evening. Thank you!
Great location convenient to Mich Ave. very comfortable dining room. Butter burgers were great. Pricing as expected for the location
nice to have a fire nearby and a real candle on the table. cozy on a cold chicago night. noise level quite low. if only the food were better!
My husband love the Beacon Tavern. Great ambiance & wonderful food. The service is always excellent.
Excellent. Love this place. They are so accommodating when it comes to my allergies. The service is the best and the ambience matches the food which is perfect.
Outstanding restaurant which makes you feel welcome and not near either the Mag Mile or Trump Hotel. That is a positive statement as it is a comfortable escape. Great atmosphere, food and service.
My husband and I were celebrating his birthday before heading out to a show. We shared the burger and fish and chips- both were great. The highlight were the Old Fashioneds we ordered. Would recommend as an upscale bar atmosphere, not stuffy and great for a date.
Great food, trendy atmosphere. Was exactly what we were looking for. Only giving 4 stars because it was good and as expected, just not exceptional.
Hard to find but worth the search! Loved the tall banquettes, which really helped with talking privately (and not shouting). The poussin special was terrific. Can’t wait to return.
Need to replace the stools in the bar all very wobbly. Food is not that great…
First, Open Table needs to look at the menu and wine list again - this is hardly a $$ restaurant. I would say $$$ at a minimum. I understand things can happen and waitstaff can make mistakes but one of our party was delivered the wrong meal twice! Given the limited menu it seemed hard to do. The person who I assume was the Manager made a joke out of the wrong meal coming the first time with the explanation “He hit the wrong button.” and walked away. Once the second meal was delivered he did not even bother to check if it was correct. I will say a starter was taken off the bill and the waiter did apologize.
We loved our dinner for 6 at the Beacon Tavern Saturday night, Oct 26, 2019 - the food was delicious, service excellent, cocktails/wine excellent, and ambiance very nice, including not too loud so we could all have a good conversation and hear each other. The only problem for some people in the group was finding the restaurant - in heavy rain. The North Wabash St address was just plain confusing for those who circled the block several times looking for the place and could not find it. They eventually stumbled in after wandering around and asking people where it was, all soaked with rain, which was not an auspicious start for a fun evening together. But once we settled in, everything was great.
Fabulous atmosphere, view, service and food!
Classy and perfect for lunch. View on the Chicago River. The service is excellent and the specials are usually good. Would like a wider selection of food on the menu. Great experience overall.
Outstanding service. Very well-trained and accommodating staff. Food is unique and delicious! Friendly atmosphere.
We really enjoyed our meal. Food and service was great. Very cool spot
Great location for a tavern. Kind of tucked away, but not hard to find. Excellent food for a tavern/pub, even if selection (ate on the bar) is somewhat limited. Fixtures and lighting made you feel like you were in a classy restaurant without letting you forget you were in a tavern.
Service (Ivan and team) was on point! Knowledge of the menu, helpfulness, attitude, timing, and attention to detail were perfect. Felt taken care of (not forgotten) without feeling like they were a bother.
Already thinking of ways to plan work outings for various occasions.
Thank you Lauren and Luke
Well done, great hospitality and food
Took my parents out for their anniversary. The staff was great and very friendly in helping celebrate the occasion. Overall very nice experience.
Perfect... at all
The service was decent when we arrived but after electing not to order the suggested Turbot entree, our server was non-existent but for fist bumping our table when we got our food and telling us to enjoy. Fish and chips were soggy.
