Just had lunch here, after 6 years of driving by this place and wondering if it was any good, we stopped in. As mentioned the inside is really dated. It was clean but still very dark and tired looking. We were told the burgers were great, the sandwiches as well. So we ordered the beacon burger with peameal and what... More

Food was reasonably priced and tasted great. 107 (2 surf and turf) for 4 entrees and 4 drinks. The issue was the young lady that served us. Was wearing short shorts and belched while taking our order. Wth?! We would return.

We go to the Beacon every couple of months for a burger and a beer. The service is always good. The food takes a little extra time to come out but it's due to the fact it is usually cooked from scratch. Always fresh and enjoyable. Don't order Cajun fries though because they up charge you 1.75 or 2 bucks... More

If you haven't been Freakin' @ The Beacon, you are definitely new to Wasaga Beach.. as this bar & restaurant has been open for almost 60 years! Snowmobiles have been known to pack the parking lot in the winter months, and many a car had been left overnight to be picked up the next day.. The building has seen better... More

Service was great, food is always great as is the service, yes it's run down, don't go here for the atmosphere...go here for a non chain restaurant with more personal service and reliable food.

Good service, really tasty food and awesome weekend Karaoke with Bryon Johnson. The Beacon is one of the oldest Wasaga Beach Restaurants still open. I has a rustic interior which adds a lot of character to the country atmosphere.
