Great food and great selection on craft brews

The Beacon is a great place for a good old fashioned fish fry on a Friday night. Great food and service. It also has the best selection of craft beers in the county. Enjoy!!

What a fun experience! This neighborhood bar provided a unique and enjoyable Friday night fish fry for our group. The bar has a huge selection of beer, wine and liquor. Everyone loved their fish and the newbies will return!
