5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Staying one night in Bradford on the way back from Toronto and found the restaurant on TripAdvisor. The positive reviews were correct - very good prime rib and prices on drinks and food were very reasonable - and the former library is a marvelous building. Save room for the ice cream puff - big enough for 3 of us!

This is a quaint place to eat. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The food wasn't all that great but it certainly wasn't bad either. I'd eat there again.

Stopped in for a quick dinner while visiting Bradford. Greeted warmly, seated and served promptly. Interesting overall atmosphere. Super-high ceilings, lots of heavy wood molding. Steaks arrived cooked to order. All good - No complaints.

I also get a side of au jus and mustard for the sandwich. Recommend you check out their extensive dinner menu as well. But as I always... More

Beefeater's Restaurants is a find. There are not many really good restaurants in Bradford (the other being Monty's) and when we started to despair I heard about Beefeater's. The beef on weck is outstanding. Prices are reasonable and the library environment (restaurant was formerly a Carnegie library) is most attractive. Check the card catalog under excellent food.

Decent food and decent service. Beautiful old building. We had The walleye and a steak. Both tasted great! The only reason I didn't give them five stars is the hostess that stuck us in a balcony by ourselves when there were at least 50% of the main floor tables open. It was hot in the balcony and she forgot to... More

Visiting university of Pittsburgh and came here for dinner. We were seated right away. Brian was our server. We ordered martinis which were good. Salad was good with house dressing. Had roast beef dinner and a NY strip steak. Both were delicious. We were too full so we didn't have dessert. Would definitely come back.

This was recommended by a friend. We were very pleased. Good food good service. Would recommend to others. Unique building. We did not have it but it would seem that beef is a specialty. We had fish. Lots of selection. Very good.

A friend and I ate here many years ago and wanted to see if it had changed. The interior was exactly as we remembered it, A former library, the dark woods and thoughtful decoration welcomed us. The wall that separated the bar from the entrance way still had the electric train that ran along the top. We were warmly greeted... More

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.
