Dining Out

Where to Eat in Beacon

New places to eat are constantly opening in Beacon, making it tough to decide where to have lunch or dinner. Your best option is often the one that’s stood the test of time. We’re thinking of the Yankee Clipper, a favorite since 1946. Clad in gleaming aluminum, this traditional diner is a sight after dark, when they switch on the pink neon sign. The comfort-food menu is truly encyclopedic.

The folks at Kitchen Sink Food & Drink aren’t the types to sit on their laurels. When you stop by, they might be serving a menu that’s a tribute to food legend Julia Child or dedicating a month to Filipino fare. Everything here is made from scratch and makes the most of locally sourced ingredients. When the weather’s warm, the patio is a magical place.

With a pressed tin ceiling, a polished wood bar, and windows trimmed in stained glass, Max’s on Main has plenty of personality. The kitchen turns out stick-to-your-ribs food like pan-seared salmon, marinated flank steak, and baby back ribs with a house-made pineapple barbecue sauce.
