Third time's the charm...or just as brutal – Well well well. Here we are again. Thought it was only fair to give this place another shot. I mean I am vaccinated, so what's the harm?
First thing that happened when we walk in? My friend steps on a plastic bag filled with dog (I hope) poop. That should have been the signal to turn around and walk out.
Had brunch and drinks to start. We were literally the second people to walk in the bar and they ran out of champagne for my mimosa. How do you run out after 2 people? Did the first person's mimosa come in a pitcher? This isn't even the point. The day got much worse. The waitress was clearly drunker than I was. I think we solved the mystery of where all the champagne went...and she was taking our order. Well if you call stumbling over chairs taking someone's order... Highlight of the day: my friend found a metal shard in his potatoes. SURPRISE!
I wish I had the ability to give this place negative stars. Not only was it terrible (yet again), but I didn't even get bombed this time. Shame on me.
Good Happy Hour – 25 cent wings on Mondays gives something to look forward to if you have "a case of the Mondays". They make them crunchy how I like them.
Good beer selection on tap, and they are all $4 for happy hour. The tattooed chick bartenders are legit, the guido guy is kinda a d-bag, but what guido isn't? This place is legit.
Won't come back here unless desperate – Came here for lunch recently. Ordered a fountain soda with my meal. Both my and my companion's beverage were flat, which we reported to our waitress. She replaced our beverages with canned soda but had the gall to charge us $5.50!
You can do better elsewhere if all you want is ordinary pub fare and decent service.
Gave it one more try – Since all of you locals (aka town drunks) had such a problem with my friends and I giving this place a bad review, we decided to give it another try. Sadly we did not come in and drink for 7 hours...didn't feel like having to sell a kidney to pay my bar tab...but we did have brunch. It took about 20 minutes to bring a mimosa. I know the whole concept of mixing TWO WHOLE liquids together is a tough one, so I completely understand. It also took about 45 minutes to bring out some eggs. I asked for ketchup from our waitress, which never came. But don't worry, the couple next to us got some without asking, so that made it all okay. The only reason I give this place ANY stars is because the two times I have been there I have gotten drunk. But I have also gotten drunk in a sump so that's not saying much. Good luck in the future, guys!
Fun, accommodating, friendly, beer bar – Ai raves that it's got "the best lady's room of any bar of this type." Not having visited the location, Mykel is not sure of the hidden pleasures of the room, but he'll take Ai's word for it. One of the not-so hidden pleasures of the bar was our server, Jasmine. From the moment we walked in, she was Johnny... er... Jasmine on the spot. "Let's open up the back room for them," she suggested to the bartender... even though we started as two of us. Before the rest of the crew arrived.
There were a ton of beers listed on the menu. Mykel chose one... it was sold out. Ai chose one. Nope, didn't have that one either. As other people arrived, the sold-out list grew. BUT, we all got to try something new and the food, though somewhat usual, was tasty as a hotdog at Yankee Stadium. All-in-all it was a great night. Mykel says, "It's my kind of bar: wood, lots of beer, no meatheads, no snobs... and a great-looking front BECKY'S sign." --Drink Club NYC is a roving group of New York drinkers
good food, nice selection on tap – usually a good neighborhood pub except when idiots like the ones posting 1 star barge in to pound back shots and drinks for 7 hours (all from the same day). it's laughable that one reviewer posted 'i'm pretty sure they over-charged me' -- if you're too drunk to be sure and too stupid to pay it, too bad. otherwise, it's an enjoyable pub with above average food and a good selection of beers.
Good low key place – This place is a decent neighborhood bar with a great beer selection. there are a few problems with the joint. AC's are over a bunch of the tables which means you'll be an ice box in about point 2 seconds. The other is in the back it's not really AC'ed well.
The pub food is decent and run of the mill.
nice – "I really enjoy Becky's. It has a cozy feel that reminds me of a fraternity house bar room. Good selection of beers. Cool place. They have a unexpectedlly good brunch as well..." said someone in yelp and I tried this place, I have nothing to add :)
