I forget about dining at Beck's because of it's location but it really is a nice place to have a relaxing meal. The food is always very good and the new beer wall let's you sample a great selection of craft beers. I particularly like their burgers. The large TV's make it great for watching sports while you eat.

Went here with a few friends to watch a game. I ordered the tenderloin with an order of cheeseballs...and a water. The cheeseballs were really good, highly recommend! The tenderloin was thin and wasn't exactly the best I've had. The service was not very good as well. My buddies ordered drinks and the waitress hardly came around to get refills.... More

Is this heaven? No, it's Beck's Taproom. There is an entire wall of taps that you pour yourself. Your pours are monitored by a digital wristband. Create your own flight. This was so fun. The food was very good as well, from the salmon to the Alfredo pasta to the burgers and the pulled pork po boy. Staff was friendly... More

My girlfriend and I went in on a Sunday afternoon around 2pm. Place was basically empty. Waitress sat us down, gave us water, wristbands for the wall, and then disappeared. We finally ordered, 10 minutes later waitress came back to tell us that cooks couldn't make 1/2 and 1/2 "speciality" pizza. So we asked to do the Sunday special on... More

This is the place we like to take out of town visitors to for a good experience. The food is always prepared fresh and it is very tasty. Try the locally brewed beers that this place is famous for, you won't be disappointed!

The taproom is something special. There are so many different beers to try on the "tap-wall". There is a tablet mounted in to the wall that tells you everything you need to know about the beer. As far as the menu, Ive had the pulled pork beer cheese sandwich and I haven't turned back. Its my go to every time... More

I've had good burgers before and Beck's doesn't disappoint. I''m going to warn you tho, that they are a sloppy, juicy mess of deliciousness. Ask for more napkins. I usually get the Swiss/mushroom burger, with sweet potato fries. The burger had great flavor and it wasn't overcooked. The home fries I swiped from my guy were also good. I really... More
