Reviews for Karl's Beacon

Visited for the game w/ friends and it was perfect. Not too cozy, not too quiet. We ate these pork and rice dishes from the kitchen, Jason of the Pork Exchange served ‘em up, I think. So good. Washed that down with drinks made to order by Claude and Pat. Good guys. Have your fun and take it the view down Taraval. Bueno.

This is a great corner bar to hang out, meet friendly neighbors and while away the hours. They have a great sense of humor, are very welcoming, and pour a stiff drink. No nonsense and unpretentious.

Recently renovated, Karl's Beacon is clean and shiny but with the feeling of a down-home, local, divebar. They have lots of TVs for watching whatever local sports team is playing at the time. There's even a back area with a pool table and large screen. The bartenders are friendly, and they have a nice selection. They even serve aperol spritzes! There's also outdoor seating, but you won't be able to watch the game.
