Housed in the Carnegie Library, it still has many of the features I remember as a child. Stunning now as an adult! Then it was a place to check out a new book...nothing more. One downside, if any is the tall staircase (approx. 15 steps)...More

Servers always seem so grumpy and unfriendly, and the food continues to go down hill fast. Once the place sold, the new owner saw dollar signs instead of great food and service. Never again!

I have had some great meals here, but I went there for my birthday in July and I’ll never go back. The service was super slow, and they gave me a burnt end of a prime rib. The other couples had bad meals too. When...More

Stopped for dinner with my husband. I had the fettuccini Alfredo with broccoli and he had the Devils on Horseback. Both were excellent. We even had drinks and dessert and our bill was only $54. Would go back again anytime.

As an average Bradford, PA - native, I grew up eating Beefeaters for birthdays and special occasions. Obviously it has changed hands a few times, but the menu typically remains consistent. Good Food, Slightly pricy, always worth it. Beefeaters is by far the nicest restaurant...More

"Chips" as in potato chips? No, I don't think that would fit with this lovely, classy place. If "chips" as in french fries, same answer. Do go and enjoy the food, though!
