We needed a place to come together for an extended family reunion lunch. Some of us hadn't met since 1971 - coming to town from as far as South America and Europe! We were kindly provided with plenty of room and, of course, good food. The staff was so attentive but also patient - we were guests that just stayed... More

I grew up in Bradford, but have been gone for many years. When I return I always have at least one Beef on Weck. In the past I have had to go to Olean because Beefeaters was always closed. Well, they are now open from 11-10. We eagerly ordered the sandwich and were not disappointed. It was perfect! Roll was... More

Since there is literally no where else to eat in Bradford we decided to try this place. The building looks wonderful, the decor and atmosphere okay. The waitress was helpful and polite. However the food was so awful that I regretted not going down the street to Arby's. The roast beef was tough. The salad not fresh. Pasta not appetizing.... More

Stopped in for dinner on Friday night. Friendly greeting at hostess stand. Made my way to the bar and enjoyed the best open roast beef sandwich smothered in gravy I've ever had! The side of garlic mashed potatoes were served piping hot and had a nice flavor. The only thing I would do differently would try another dessert since the... More

Stopped for lunch with visitors so they could try a beef on weck for the first time. The restaurants is warm and inviting, but the service and food fell short. The beef was far from the degree of doneness ordered. We didn't get a chance to alert the server because the staff had mysteriously vanished. Edible but far from incredible.

Beefeaters during a Tuesday lunch hour was a real highlight on our trip to Bradford. The building itself is exquisite. Service was very prompt and friendly. I guess I didn't expect anything as nice as this in such a town off the beaten path. Prices were not bad. There were so many food choices that it was hard to choose.... More

On our yearly visit to Bradford, we went to Beefeater for the first time. They were very accommodating with our party of 8 on a Saturday night and seated us quickly. There is no doubt that this was better that any other place I have eaten in this town. The menu had many choices including delicious sounding apps and specials.... More

We used to love Beefeaters. They had the BEST ranch in the town, delicious beef, and great breaded zucchini as a starter. Unfortunately, it seems the beef is SO tough now, the ranch is watered-down, and the zucchini tastes like something that you'd get at a fair. It's really sad to see the change.

I have to admit that a lot of my partiality to this place is due to nostalgia, but it is easy, as they have kept it a welcoming place, with what I consider very good food, and good service. Simple. I have to add, if you are able to make one of their holiday brunches, try them - we went... More

Excellent service with very little waiting and very hot food and cold, very cold draft (great for me)! Salads were crisp and cold and rolls were warm and fresh.
