Gastro Pub

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

The food was very good and the quantity was impressive.

To their credit, other service personal filled in and stopped by to see if we needed anything. Food as always - quite good . A fun stop before or after the movies.

Someone in my group ordered salad without nuts and nuts were in the salad. He’s allergic to nuts. I believe the waiter put order in correctly and that it was made incorrectly. We also had to ask for the salad after salad and soup came out for the other people dining. I asked for a wine menu. The waiter brought out the menu and a few minutes later he brought out a glass of wine that I was currently drinking . I never ordered a glass of wine. Someone else at the table took the wine. The waiter did take off a glass wine from the bill.

Seafood is cooked to perfection and everything is seasoned properly. Yes, it is a pub, but the kitchen certainly knows what it's doing. At least during the lunch hours, conversations with one's colleagues are easy. Get there before the loud crowds realize what they are missing.

Very limited seating in the quieter front of the restaurant. Fortunately, it was a nice evening so we could sit at an outdoor table, albeit without the "Irish Atmosphere". WARNING: Smoking IS allowed at outdoor tables 😮.

We made reservations, and were promptly seated. It's not gourmet, but it is true to the claim of "gastro pub". The menu features great English/Irish classics, with some other unique comfort dishes thrown in. Very nice variety. Everything was well-prepared and presented. Generous portions of everything ordered at the table. The Crab cake/Salmon cake combo was a favorite - don't expect the crab cake to be the typical Maryland blue crab cake though - it's more of a fish cake, with crab as the fish - no Old Bay here! But very good. Another favorite was the Fried Green Tomato app. Our server, Sydney, was super cool - a real local gal who knows the area, and the menu, very well. She was prompt, professional and fun :)

Fantastic atmosphere. The menu is very creative. Lots of lamb in a variety of presentation. As an alternative to a beef burger, try the lamb for some additional flavour. Akeem of the details are missing. I'd pay an extra dollar for a nice hard crust roll for the burger and the french files seemed to have been prepared in an oven rather than a deep fryer. All-in-all, deserving visiting again.

I had the Irish Sausage Rolls & Chips, my wife Fish & Chips. Servings were ample and the taste very good. I liked the sausage rolls, but determined I prefer Bangers & Mash. But it is good to try something different. The fish was excellent.

It was a beautiful day and I anticipated crowds. However, Beckett's was practically empty at 2PM. The decor is very nice, warm and appropriate for an Irish Pub. The service was good, but not great - maybe all worn out by that time. I rated the food "Good" because some of it was very good, such as my Dalkey Benedict, and some was just okay, such as my Crab and Corn Chowder. My companions also had mixed results. All that said, the beer was great and I'd be willing to go again, to give it a second chance.
