Best restaurant in Bradford PA. In an incredibly renovated, old, red sandstone Carnegie library. I've been there several times and would like to write a review. Just East of Allegheny National Forest.

Agree with most of the previous reviews.

There is little I can say that hasn't already been mentioned numerous times. I do disagree with the reviewer that complained about the "bagged" salad...it's Bradford PA not San Francisco or NYC. The salad was fine and better than average and so was the meal and service.

We were in Bradford for our anniversary and had dinner at The Beefeater's Restaurant. The meal was very good. You have to get something with beef since that's what they are noted for. We shared the sampler appetizer and it was a meal in itself. Our waitress was friendly and the building is absolutely beautiful. We'll stop again if we... More

The staff was very attentive and the food was great. Lots of choices on the menu. The building was converted from a library to the restaurant . Really cool.

Our daughters were at orientation at University of Pittsburgh in Bradford. They had the parents leave campus and we were on our own for dinner. This is a very small town. This restaurant is a shining star here. It is in an old library building. The decor is great and the architecture is beautiful. The tables have all old advertisements... More

Formerly a Carnegie Library built in 1900. This restaurant merits its high ranking. Although, as a bookworm, I was hoping to be eating among the stacks, Beefeaters was more like a former mansion than a former library. The beef is excellent. A Beef Bar sits in the main dining room with a carver on duty at all times. I would... More

I have eaten here many times and I enjoy many different items on their menu, but my favorite meal is their prime rib. I order the smallest portion and still end up taking some of it home to enjoy later. The shrimp cocktail is excellent also. The atmosphere is reminiscent of bygone eras. Beefeater's is located in the old library... More

A bit disappointed with our last visit to Beefeater's because the quality of the food was not as good as our previous visits. The menu has a nice selection, but the beef we had was tough/chewy and not hot, just warm. The gravy was hot, but quite peppery. It will be a while before returning to this restaurant.

A very good choice in Bradford, where the choices are limited. I think Beefeater's and The Kabob House are the places to go. And try John Williams European Pastry Shop for breakfast, Kennedy Cafe and Cafe Aud for lunch.

I ordered the strawberry Chicken. It was awesome and had a spicy kick to it! Got the garlic mashed taters and a salad. Great meal and a good price

I really missed this as a public library growing up so we stopped to try it for lunch on a visit back. I really liked seeing some of the old library showing up in the decor. The food wasn't bad. The french dip was a bit bland though
