Welcome to Beckett's. We have taken a great deal of time and effort to try and create an authentic Irish Pub. Our menu is a collaboration of items from old Ireland to modern Ireland. We are trying to present to you an example of what we loved to eat growing up in Ireland and what is now popular from some of our favorite haunts back home. We promise to offer you the freshest produce, and source as much as we can from local suppliers. We have a mixture of staff from local talent, to staff that we brought over from Ireland. We would like you to think of us as your stepping stone to Ireland. Our ambassadors will try and answer all your questions on Ireland while serving you great comfort food and premium drinks in a warm environment.

OpenTable Diner (Washington DC)
3.0  Dined on January 20, 2018

We had dinner for 3. We were promptly greeted at the door and seated. Service after that was lackluster. Our server seemed put out by a request for a wine list, which took far too long to deliver. The food had obviously been waiting in the kitchen. Fish and chips were soggy. Vol au vent was cool and chewy. Only the pasta was hot. I’d been to the bar several times and always had a good experience. I think I will limit future visits to the bar.

They were having heating issues during the recent cold spell. It was very cold in the restaurant but they were very accomodating, moved us to another table away from the door. Fish and chips were good, drink menu was good too. We plan to come back when it’s warmer again!

Most American versions of the Irish Pub fall are but caricatures of the real thing. Not so at Becketts. Its the real deal! The best Irish Pub this side of Dingel.

Excellent pre-theater (Signature Theater in Shirlington) choice for dinner. VERY good food and menus options. Service was good, not intrusive. Cozy is a good word to describe Beckett's as we went on a very cold December evening and were very comfortable. Highly recommend!

This is a lovely Irish pub with very good basic food. We enjoyed their home made soups, fish and chips, shepard's pie and crab cakes. Quick service and a pleasant atmosphere. We were going to the theatre and this restaurant was the perfect location for proximity and good good.

The food was really good. The server was average in his skills. When asked about menu items the server spoke more about his shift meal experiences and less about the quality of the dishes.

We ordered three hamburgers and fish and chips. All the burgers were significantly undercooked. The fries tasted as if the oil in the deep fryer was overdue to be changed. One burger was sent back, half eaten. The cook put the patty on the flat top and cooked it, then returned the sandwich to table bite marks and all! There are other better options in Shirlington; I wish I had chosen differently.

Took my family to dinner before going to Signature Theater, all as a Christmas gift to them. Wanted to make sure all would enjoy, since two family members are vegetarians. Everyone seemed very pleased. The service was prompt and we kept to our schedule for the theater. Definitely would return and recommend to others.

Perfect place to dine before attending a performance at the Signature theater.
