“A Westside Binghamton institution!”

Restaurant details
Reviewed May 6, 2012

Anyone that has lived on Binghamton's Westside has to know "The Beef". The new owners have done a nice job renovating the bar area and made it more warm and inviting. However, they should have gone the extra mile and done something to the dinning area saw well. The drab painted paneling is totally outdated and in need of a major facelift. They have a decent menu with many various selections that could appeal to almost anyone. This is not an elegant restaurant, not do they try to be one. It's a great neighborhood pub with decent food, reasonable prices and a popular hangout. Their "beef on wick" is a sandwich to die for and the French Onion Soup is spectacular.

Despite the many comments, it continues to be perplexing finding the dining room - walked into the obvious entrance and was greeted by blank stares from the tipplers and barkeep in the bar. We stood for a bit looking perplexed, then noticed the dining room, stepped back outside, and went in the proper door (on left). A sign, or at least a friendly nod from the barkeep would have been appreciated. Only a few major labels on tap, but they had Yeungling, so that was taken care of. Based on reviews, I was expecting slabs of red meat, but the selection was not much beyond regular family restaurant fare. I had a steak, medium done despite my order of "extremely rare". Crab cakes were not memorable. Service was okay, atmosphere was hard to judge since there was just one other table occupied at the time of our visit.
