A word from Beckett's Table
Chef Justin Beckett brings together what matters to him most: family, friends and honest, incredible food. With considerable help from his partners and longtime friends Scott and Katie Stephens and his wife Michelle, Beckett has created an irresistible hangout for his discerning Arcadia/Biltmore neighbors, people who expect comfort and sophistication in equal measure and get it here.



The same grounded approach is evident on the menu, which emphasizes Seasonal American Cooking in dishes such as Creamy Grits and Spicy Andouille Sausage with mustard jus, Pork Osso Buco Confit with spinach pancetta spaetzle , or Fork Tender Short Ribs with creamy mashed potatoes, sautéed veggies, red wine reduction.



Factor in the inviting bar, roomy patio and community table, and it gets even easier to follow the Beckett's Table mandate: Come Together.

    Expected more vegan selections for this type of restaurant, but it's cute although loud. For you vegetarians out there, there is bacon in their deviled eggs...not listed on menu and would never have thought to ask as Bacon does not need to be in everything!!!

    Just happened across Beckett and was pleasantly surprised. Nice ambiance, service was great. Decent wine list and waiters suggestion was liked by all. Osso bucco was good, though the green spatzle were a bit salty. Salad was very fresh and tasty, not overdressed like seems to be the norm now.

    We discovered Beckett's Table several years ago and found the food and service to be the great. It is now our "go to" place for a special evening. They just do not disappoint. We live on the west side and are excited about discovering the Southern Rail.

    We were excited to try Beckett's Table because we read great reviews and the menu looked great! When we sat down, our waters were filled immediately (and consistently throughout the night thanks to the water boy!) Our server greeted us in a timely matter and was overall a good server. However, when we did order our food, no joke, it was out within 4 minutes. 4 minutes!! That's unheard of. I did order a salad, which takes no time but a shortrib in 4 minutes. When the server brought it we said "Whoa! That was fast!" Her response,"we don't mess around." No kidding. If you know someone is trying to have a nice night out and food takes a while, put it on a hold. That was way too fast for our liking.

    We had a very difficult time narrowing our choices. Our waitress Rachel took excellent care of us and was spot on with her recommendations. We definitely will need to come back so we can try things we were not able to this time. My personal favorites were the Pork Osso buco with the spinach spitzle. The deconstructed smores with chocolate covered bacon and peanut butter, so crazy it is good!

    We decided to try Beckett's Table to celebrate a friends birthday. None of us had been there before. The entrees we had were, a flat iron steak, and short ribs. Both were great, the ribs were amazing. We also ordered some bacon biscuits that were mouthwateringly good! We had a bit of a wait for the food, which ended up being worth the wait. Our waiter (John, I think) was very pleasant and helpful regarding items on the menu. We purchased a t shirt for our son "Porknography" which was delivered in a take out gift box, by the manager, in a very first class gesture. We definitely plan on returning with friends.

  • Do not get the fish
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 8/10/2014
    My wife got the steamed whitefish and it was pretty bad; she could not stomach more than a few bites. She is the second person I've been with at Beckett's who said that the fish was terrible. I know this is strictly a matter of taste but steamed fish is just not appealing. Grilled, baked, sauteed...anything but steamed. My Osso Buco was terrific as always though.

    Beckett's Table emphasizes local ingredients and has a deep local wine list (along with many other great options from further afield too). The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable. It seems they always have another vegetarian and vegan option that's not posted on the menu, so be sure to ask your waiter (we got a delightful drilled tofu steak with chimicurri sauce along with the exquisite vegetable sides--fingerling potatoes, roasted mushrooms, creamed corn) that was much more interesting than the "local vegetables plate" noted on the menu as the vegetarian option.

    Great concept and great service, with a staff paying attention and rushing to clean the table or fill your glass. The Salmon Ceviche was perfect with a good mix of flavors and bite. The Cod was a real gem, both innovative and elegant, while a feast to the palate. The Steamed Sea Bass was also creative, but was slightly overcooked and borderline mushy and watery, which sort of took the whole dish a serious level down. Our waiter did a great job discussing our wine selections, and our choices did actually match his descriptions perfectly. We will return and try something new.

    We received a referral from a previous guest of the restaurant who now lives in Denver. She suggested we try Becketts Table. We were not disappointed. The food was amazing! The service spectacular! We went with some suggestions from our server and everything was incredible! We will be back and have already shared with some friends how awesome the restaurant was!

    After reading so many positive reviews, I really expected more than I experienced. The food was good, but not great. Those I dined with enjoyed their meals, mine was sub-par. I had the St. Louis Ribs and they were the worst ribs I have ever had. They were extremely fatty, like 70% fat. I expect more from a place of this supposed caliber. The service was sub-par as well. I had to ask three times (three different people, including the manager) over nearly 10 minutes to get something to wipe my grease covered hands with (from the fatty ribs). The place was busy, but is not so large that they cannot care better for their customers. They just seemed somewhat disorganized. This will not be on my list of places to return to.

    It is a lively place. They have high top tables and a nice bar and, table seating. We sat at the bar and it was great however the barstools are small and uncomfortable and there was no place to rest my feet so they dangled which is not good. The food was great and the service was really good, too.

    When we walked in we thought it would be very noisy, but were able to hear each other throughout the meal. Service was friendly and professional. Chopped garden salad was beyond wonderful. All four of us had it, and all absolutely loved it. Short ribs, pork osso bucco, chicken were all very good. Coconut dessert could have been a creamy delight but wasn't - had just a schmeer of pudding on the plate, with a square of cake w/no or little icing, and a small scoop of ice cream. Seemed to be visual presentation prevailing over taste. Really enjoyed this restaurant - will absolutely come back.

    Being from out of town, this was my first time here. The locals in my group had not been here before either but stated that they were definitely coming back. Go for the social hour and try some of the specialty drinks. Get a variety of the appetizers, try the specials and get a variety of the desserts and extra forks.

    We had a reservation, but arrived about 20 minutes early. We were prepared to wait for a table, but were seated immediately. We were very impressed with our server. She had excellent knowledge of the food, specialty list, and wine list. Our water glasses were kept full and we were kept informed of the progress on our food preparation. We didn't have to wait long for any of our food. I had the heirloom tomato salad and my spouse had the tomato soup. Both were very good. I had the scallops special and my spouse had the stew. Again, both were very good. For dessert we had the coconut cake and the donuts. The cake was wonderful. The donuts were a little sugary for our taste. it was good dining experience. We plan to return.

    So, excellent food and service - don't need to say much more but, of course, I will. Have to get the grill cheese and soup app. All the entrees are excellent - fish, pork, .... so something for everyone. Gluten free and vegetarian options as well. They were out of the deep fried deviled eggs - not sure how that happens but it did. We made a joke about it and ended up with a dessert on the house. Dessert are great also. Drink list is great - usual, interesting. Lots of local/made in restaurant stuff - so bonus points for that. (Looking forward to trying Southern Rail - Beckett's "new" place.) Parking is odd but I got a spot so I didn't look around the neighborhood for parking so maybe isn't not an issue.

    We selected the vegetarian options for dinner. Wonderful fresh vegetables and a stone fruit salad. Heirloom tomatoes ripened to perfection. And then we really splurged on dessert. The coconut cake was not too sweet and the ice cream paired deliciously. The chocolate included on the board was so decadent, but again not too sweet. Elegant and satisfying way to end a perfect meal.

    We found Beckett's Table in a copy of Phoenix magazine and since we have not been disappointed yet with any restaurants that have been featured in there we decided to give it a try. We were in LOVE with our first bite of food and sip of our drink! I had the Heirloom Tomatoes Gazpacho (served deconstructed) that was not only visually appealing but so delicious. My husband had the Heirloom Tomato Cheese plate that was equally delicious! Pork was on both of our minds when we ordered our main course and every bite was tender, tasty and complex. We ended with by sharing a Coconut Cake that was presented on a block of wood with coconut cream and chocolate ganache swirled around a sizeable portion of cake along with Burnt Cream Ice Cream...OMG!

    We had one of the most outstanding dinners in recent memory at Beckett's Table. Every item was cooked to perfection. The only thing missing was a personal touch by the chef or management. We would have enjoyed sharing in the delight with him/her since such satisfaction is often rare. One thing to watch is the disconnect between the online menu and the actual courses offered. Overall, a wonderful experience.
