I've been to this pub for happy hour, brunch, lunch, and dinner. The food is okay and the menu is sort of limited - brunch was probably my favorite of my meals here. I really enjoy coming here for happy hour or just a late-night drink - the bar area is great and the live music offered on some nights is awesome. The bartenders are friendly and there's normally not a long wait for drinks. The overall vibe of the bar is wonderful.

I came here with my wife and another couple. We had a fantastic time.the service was great, the food was scrumptious. We had scallops, lamb shank, rib eye and a lamb burger. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed there food. The pints of Guinness were perfect, they also have a great selection of Irish whiskey. We will be back!

The food was good for brunch. Service was absolutly horrible. Had to repeatablely ask for refills on our drinks and they would only refill one drink at a time on the table. Will not be back

We had lunch at Beckett's recently with another couple. The crab cakes were not that good and the soup was okay. The crab cakes were not lumped but rather made with a mix. Dessert portions were small. The seating arrangement is awkward. Too many tables stuffed into too small a space. The floors are made of wood so there is nothing to soften the noise. It can get very noisy in the place! The food is not inexpensive. Lunch for two with the tip was $52. We would not go there again!

Went with a group of friends. Had a blast! There were some bagpipers in town that day that played a bunch of tunes for us. We would certainly go back for more fun!!
