it was a decent time.

Third time's the charm...or just as brutal 11/16/2010

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. more

Good Happy Hour 6/27/2010

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. Pros: Good Happy Hour more

Won't come back here unless desperate 7/31/2009

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. more

Gave it one more try 11/13/2008

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! more

Fun, accommodating, friendly, beer bar 8/1/2008

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.\r 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 Pros: great service, friendly atmosphere, great beer selection (on paper) Cons: a lot of listed beers are unavailable more

good food, nice selection on tap 7/14/2008

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. more

Good low key place 6/17/2008

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.\r \r The pub food is decent and run of the mill. Pros: Frozen Popsicle Cons: Frozen Popsicles more

nice 5/20/2008

""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 :) more

Best Bar in the Neighborhood 3/27/2008

I love going to Becky's Its a great place to relax and enjoy a pint. The service is great and the food is wonderful. I love the cigar store indian he is a great addition to the bar. I go to this bar for all sports games. The decoration is awesome too there is so much to look at. Remember always tip your bartendar! Cheers! Pros: Great Bar Food more

you what? 1/24/2008

I've just been reading the previous reviews, and am curious as to why the last 3 are so bad, and also, \r I think it's odd that they were all written on the same date??? They are not a true reflection of what this bar is really like, and it sounds as though someone is making up reviews. Beckys is a great neighborhood bar, great beer selection, yummy english skinny 'chips', awesome pizza. I highly recommend! Pros: great beer selection, live music on wednesdays more

I award this place ZERO stars 1/10/2008

This place was just brutal. The service was horrible, the people there were hideous, and I'm pretty sure they over-charged me on my tab! Probably the worst time I've had in a New York establishment EVER. I would never go back here unless I was homeless and needed a place to urinate. Pros: non Cons: terrible service more

Most Expensive Bar Tab ever 1/10/2008

Sure, we drank a lot here. They didn't buy one drink back. They gave us the bill for four people with the gratuity included and it was $540!!!! 32 Baby Guiness shots for $208.00?!? I mean, at that point I don't even know if we really had 32, but they clearly didn't buy anything back, and we were charged for a mystery diet coke. The service was not good, I guess when the gratuity is included, why bother. I would not go back. Everytime I pass this place now, I give it the finger. Cons: Winner of the Most Expensive Bar Tab Ever more

RIP OFF! 1/10/2008

I went there the day of the marathon with a few friends. We were there from brunch until about 7 that night. When we got the bill, it was LAUGHABLE - they did not buy ONE drink back - they charged us for EVERYTHING and even drinks we didn't have! They also added the gratuity on for some reason - probably because most people don't notice so they tip twice - and the service was awful! They forgot one of our meals and were slow coming to check on us. Half the time we had to walk up to the bar ourselves to get a drink. Then they'd send us back to get it from the wiatress who NEVER came. Never going back there again. If I could, it would get NO stars. more

Bar that makes you feel at home 12/20/2007

I have a friend that discovered this place so I decided to check it out. Good drinks, nice waitresses, great Christmas atmosphere. All warm and cozy, like a neighborhood bar should be. Pros: Christmas lights, good waitresses Cons: None! more

Best beer bar in this area 10/14/2007

What a great beer bar!!! They have over 20 good beers on draught, and served in an Imperial glass (20 oz glass)? WOWOWO. Maybe had one to many, but on holiday with my peeps-they are a good local place. Food is good and cheap. At night see Glen.However, Do not expect cheap prices for food or great service. Pros: many draught beers Cons: service & hours more

Great Sports Bar 3/25/2007

Good food - nice staff - and lots of beers on draft. They have a ton of \r tvs where you can watch several differnt sports at one time. The jukebox is cool b/c you can download your own music. The prices are a lil steep for a pub but other than that I reccommend Becky's. Pros: draft beers, tvs, service Cons: too expensive more

Solid neighborhood bar... 3/5/2007

...built on a foundation of 24 draft taps and good bar food. The inside looks casual and the atmosphere absolutely is. I doubt no one is taking the subway to drink here. The food does make it totally worthwhile to show up for a game though. Good bar to hang out at if you want to take a break from drinking in the village with the whole college crowd, or B&T crowd in the meatpacking district. \r \r Show up with a bunch of good friends get food , get sloshed, talk to everyone, put 10 dollars in the jukebox, you will have a fantastic time.\r \r Watch out though, the touch screen on the jukebox registers your touch 2 inches to the left of where it should be resulting in hilarious song choices. Pros: good food, lots of beer, cute bar wenches Cons: jukebox touch screen will frustrate, has a propensity towards Hall and Oates more

Excellent neighborhood pub 9/2/2006

Becky's is THE neighborhood pub of choice. Good dark Irish pub that doesn't take itself too seriously. I doubt anyone will travel from other neighborhoods to hang out here, which keeps the crowd pleasant, unpretentious, and neighborly. Always a good time and a great place to catch sports games. Good beers on tap, and the most amazing chicken nachos in the city. I swear they lace them with something, too good to be true. Only about $9, but can easily feed 2-3 people. We eat it all the time for an entire meal. Other appetizers are also very good, and really good sizes for the price. Newcastle beer is about $4/pint. Bigger american beers (bud, miller) are cheaper. Good prices in comparison to other Manhattan bars. Very fun place. Good pub atmosphere. Good, real people. Good staff. Pros: Great prices, food, and atmosphere Cons: They play U2 (they're Irish, oh well.) more

Great time! 9/14/2005

I don't know what everyone is complaining about. I've been here several times and have always had friendly and fast service. There are a number of beers on tap, and you get a lot of food for the price. more
