Great meal with great friends. We’ll be back. Maybe next time we’ll eat in the bar, the main restaurant is pretty cavernous.

Overall, food was good and essentially what I expected. Service was a solid "unimpressive" but not bad.

There were some 'flaws' in the food quality / portions. Had a group of 5. Two people ordered chop salad, and one of them got no chicken in theirs. It was easy to find them in the other one. On the burger, I paid extra for blue cheese and it was there but pretty sparse. Regardless of paying extra for it, I would have preferred more because I only tasted it in ~20% of my bites.

Service was only ok. It wasn't a deal breaker (i.e I would come back) but was kind of disappointing. It was busy, but there were empty tables. We were served the a double portion of one of the appetizers we had ordered, but they put it down, took it away and came back later with our real ones. It seemed like there was a mix up and the original appetizers didn't get ordered because it took a while to get them.

We wanted desert, but were offered the check without asking. Asking how big the cookie was and he made a circle with his fingers so we got two, but they were a good 1inch larger than any circle I could make with my fingers (so a bit inaccurate. Not a big deal for us to order another one). There was a long wait after the deserts for the bill, and while we had our credit card in the bill waiting for someone to take it, they brought us some other table's entree. It was nice that they took off one of the appetizers for the mix up earlier though.

It was our first time at Beardslee Public House and gathered for dinner to celebrate a family birthday. The food, beverages and experience could not have been better and Alex did a fantastic job as our server!!! We definitely look forward to returning!

Overall good casual food. Only downside is the service was pretty slow. We were there almost two hours for appetizers and burgers. A little pricey for the type of food it is. Very good quality food however.

Beardslee Public House has consistently good food which is diminished by inconsistent service quality. At times the wait staff is overwhelmed and seems annoyed with customer interaction. This means asking for stuff multiple times (like refills or drinks) and comments from servers like “the menu is right there” when asking what’s the dessert specials. With an average cost of about $25 per plate (not including drinks or dessert) service needs to be better and consistently outstanding. I used to go once to three times monthly and now I’m going to take my business elsewhere to wait a couple months to see if Beardslee’s service quality improves.

I had the soup and salad lunch. The lentil soup was ok but qty was like 5 tablespoons. The caesar salad was dry and completely uninspired. So for my money, i had about $1 worth of food. Very close to being crummy.

Hi Don, Thank you for taking the time to reach out about your recent experience. It sounds to me like the portions of your meal snuck by us on Friday, as we aim to check every dish for recipe accuracy and portion size before it hits your table. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience, and wish I'd have had the opportunity to rectify this while you were here. If you'd be willing to email me at seans@beardsleeph.c o m I would love the chance to speak to you further. Thank you, Sean Stapleton GM

The food is decent but extremely over-priced for this type of restaurant. It’s like a casual sports bar with close to $20 burgers; we won’t go again. Our waitress was sweet but a bit challenging to communicate with.

Honestly, I am not sure I'd recommend this place for New Year's Eve, however, on a regular weekend - sure! I'd recommend it. Open Table made me feel pressured to make a reservation because there were only a couple time slots left for New Year's Eve. We grabbed an early reservation and arrived, only to find a completely empty restaurant that was closing in 30 minutes, to let their employees off for New Year's Eve. While I think that's great (for the employees) it was terrible for us. Service sucked, food was ok, and over all, employees were just rushing to get us out of there. Not a great experience. In fact, the server asked if we wanted our drinks to go! It was an unusual experience, given that it was New Year's Eve. I know the service is not like that on a regular basis. However, I am writing this review, in the hopes that management would seriously consider closing next time on a holiday. DO NOT ACCEPT DINNER RESERVATIONS if your staff is not going to give good service.

Service was extremely slow, I don't know if they were understaffed, but the wait person did not seem to be in any hurry to serve us and the food took over an hour to get to the table after we finally ordered.

It was a great time, they were out of the fish tacos and the salmon sandwich which many in our party wanted to order but they found other things to eat that were good. I do like the options on the wine sizes 4oz was perfect.

We visited 12/14 for brunch with Santa We really loved being able to have a great brunch and quality photo with Santa without the stress of waiting in a long line. Very high value and will do again and recommend to others. Some of our food was lukewarm when it arrived, and we'd also love to see a classic breakfast option on the menu (eggs, bacon/sausage, toast, potatoes/fruit).

This was for Breakfast with Santa.
The food was excellent. The service was quality. Our waitress was super friendly and attentive. The organization of the Santa photos along with timing of food was chaotic. Maybe next year have pictures taken as the families come in, then sit them. A parent can write email and such while photo is taken. Then no one misses food or pics with a clean kid.

The breakfast bowls are dry and not too good. Would recommend other dishes but these are the only gluten free options they have. Was told there would be more but only three options. Looks like a good place to watch games and maybe better for lunches and dinners but breakfast was average.

We had a large group of people and the service was very slow. Lots of tables that came in after us got served first. Maybe because our group was so big? Still kind of frustrating. Overall a good meal and it was nice that they can accommodate large groups.

Be sure when recommending a whiskey for a cocktail the customer knows the price. A $13 drink turned into a $20 with your house blend. Good but not that good.

The last time we tried Beardslee was when it first opened a few years ago. It wasn't our favorite back then, but it has since improved greatly! The food was delicious and the service was stellar. I had the Cava (so good), the guacamole burger, and a Ceasar salad. My husband had the mac n' cheese and the tortilla soup. We'll definitely be going back soon.
