    Seated right away even though we were 15 minutes early. Cocktail order taken within 5 minutes. Ordered an App but were no rushed to order dinner. All of the food was very good especially the baked seafood casserole and collard greens.

    Had the mussels and they were delicious! My favorite dish at Beck's. Unfortunately, we were stuck in the hallway dining area, which is dark and has tiny tables. Not enough room for the dishes, really made eating difficult. It's also like a wave guide, funnels the noise in from the front making it difficult to hear your own conversation. We asked for better seating, but I suppose because we were only two people, we couldn't have a better table. I made the reservation over a week in advance. Disappointed. I usually recommend Beck's to friends, but not sure I will in the future.

    Zach our waiter was not knowledgeable he argued with us that we can’t get our oysters steamed we knew better since we eat here all the time but if we first time he would of cost a $31 sale. Also co-diner specifically asked for holandanaise sauce on fish he said it was his fault but still had to wait 15 minutes or so for her to get the new one and we were all done prior to her getting hers. Probably the worst service we have had there lately. Thanks

    We’ve been there a few times. It’s ok. I wouldnt go out of my way for it. The atmosphere is good. The price is high for what you’re getting and portion size. Nothing extra like bread.

    Besides the wonderful specialty cocktail to the absolutely delicious BP oysters, and both off the menu specials (appetizer & entree) the service was impeccable. Just wish the location was a little closer to home so I can visit more often.

    It is always dependable and good. We enjoy every time we come and get the same things- mussels and fish and chips. Always think I’ll get something else but can’t seem to leave a definite!

    I had the halibut over rice. It was bland. Could have easily made it at home... drinks were small. Two sips and they are gone. Oysters were extremely small. Great staff.

    My wife and I ordered the pimento cheese hushpuppies and they were great. For dinner ordered fish and chips, and my wife got blackened grouper, both of our meals were delicious! We got desert too, cheesecake and peach cobbler—very tasty. We will definitely go back. The ambiance is nice, and our waitress did a great job.

    This was our first experience dining at Beck's in Augusta GA. I made the reservations online and mentioned the occasion was our 59th wedding anniversary. The first disappointment was the parking problem. My husband uses a walker and there were no parking places on the street in front of the restaurant. We parked a half black away at Computer Central and it wasn't easy for my husband even using his walker to go that distance since it was uphill. The second disappointment was when the hostess seated us at the smallest table I've ever seen in a nice restaurant. It was a table for two against a block wall in a narrow hallway between the front dining room and the back dining room which was pretty noisy. The food was fantastic! Our server was exceptional! But if the meal had not been served in courses (appetizer, salad, bread, entree and dessert, the minute table could not accommodate more than just one course at a time, it was so tiny! Had I known this when I made the reservation, I would have insisted on a regular size table so we could've dined more comfortably. For this reason, I am hesitant to recommend my friends to go there - even though the food was deliciously prepared.

    We had wonderful service with Kim. She spaced out our meal and never rushed us. Drinks were the best and oysters were really great, both fried and on half shell. Our main courses were pretty good as well. We always look forward to coming to Becks.

    A staple around Augusta now, for sure. If you know someone who loves great food and beverages, they will no doubt be at Beck's on any given night. Owner John Beck knows what he's doing, always has, and this spot has become probably the "town favorite" for a while now. Always booked a week or more in advance, so that speaks volumes...and you won't ever be disappointed in the menu items or the specials, as they're always creative and great. More of our foodie friends go there than any other place, with good reason. A casual spot with awesome food and very good service (despite being stretched & somewhat overworked due to the demand, which is a good thing). Atmosphere is always moderately loud, as couples are constantly walking around to chat with their friends, but that's also a good thing, and why it's so much fun. Great steaks, great fish selections, and much more....a highly varied menu, and the specials also vary and are awesome. We COULD just close our eyes and pick, because it's always predictably perfect and delicious. I have about 5-6 favorite restaurants around Augusta, each unique, so I might say when I'm somewhere that "it's the best" because I crave certain things at certain places on certain occasions, but truly each one IS the best for that moment, and each one, being different, is qualified for my, and our, highest affections. But Beck's TRULY is way up there at the top because it deserves to be. Top of the top. Chef is very talented, and owner John Beck knows and demands the best, and he can produce it, so just know that Beck's is awesome and worthy of the highest accolades. And, it's pretty darn fun there too...always a great evening. If ever you think your friends have left you, don't despair, just drive to Beck's, they'll be there.

    Beck's is always reliably outstanding! The Hunts Oysters are one of my favorite appetizers of all time. The selection of raw oysters is the best in the area. Service is consistently friendly, attentive and helpful. John Beck and his team do a wonderful job making this one of the top dining experiences in the Augusta area.
