The Beacon has been an institution in Des Plaines forever. The food is consistently good and the drinks are strong and affordable. The wait staff and bartenders are friendly and accommodating. I have been to the Beacon many times and have rarely been disappointed. It is a tavern and their food is typical tavern food, burgers, chicken, etc. They occasionally have live entertainment and in the summer they have reunions for Maine West and many other schools. The outside beer garden is spacious, they have an area reserved for "bags" (cornhole, Baggo)
they also have a sand volleyball court. I always have a good time at the Beacon.
