Have been there more than four or five times in the last couple months. Everything we had we totally enjoyed. Never had a bad meal yet. The atmosphere, the people the food all of it is excellent.

We've been here before and we were pleased to have Mike as our waiter. He waited on us the first time we were here and again the other evening. Besides doing a very professional job, he makes us feel as if we are family. How he waits on so many tables and still has the time to visit, well, I'll never figure that one out. Oh, did I me ... read more

We decided to take a chance and go out for Saint Patrick's Day! Safety precautions were in place..we were seated by the music which is the main reason we came hear some Irish music! The musician was very good but. .. No Irish music!! So disappointing!! Food was good, my steak sandwich was very tough, and it took forever to g ... read more

Nice atmosphere and the Shepard's Pie I had was good although a bit pricey at $20. Will only be able to dine there once in a while.

Best food in a long time. If I had more stars for this place I would give it but I do not so they get a 500%. That food was delicious.

I really feel like Yelp should purge reviews from the previous owners. They've done great work and there is a huge improvement. My husband had the Jameson meatloaf without reading the description and was blown away that it was covered in cheese and wrapped in a puff pastry! So far we have only had take out- but we decided this is the ... read more

Love it here! Bartender is cute and really friendly! She is very nice to my obnoxious male friends that constantly hit on her and she maintains a smile.
Larissa Marie via - Feb 10, 2021
Excellent food, good beer selection and Guinness poured right! Went here for lunch, I had the meatloaf and it was fantastic. It is meatloaf, with cheddar cheese and coated with a breading, then baked. Burgers were also very good. Fish and chips were top notch and malt vinegar finished the taste nicely. We had the Guinness cake w ... read more

Always a phenomenal experience for "bar food." The chef makes it a point to add a nice flair to the food. I respect the fact that he takes chances and mixes the textures and flavors. Definitely recommend the octopus and calamari if you're into seafood.

Glad to have new owners in this establishment! Starts with a wine lovers salad with a citrus vinaigrette and a hearty crock of French onion soup. The salad and the onion soup were worth ordering again. The 1/2 rack of ribs was served with homemade coleslaw and fresh green beans was plentiful and tasty, the rib meat fell off the bone ... read more

Great that they are open during this trying time.  Good selection of food and beer and quality of food is decent.  

Major shout out to Christian, who was my bartender / server and went way beyond his need for service!

Ownership has changed. Can not give a really fair assessment due to pandemic. The meal we had was good. Service was ok but they are limited in the amount of employees they have on duty like other restaurants. Give it a whirl.

A pleasant surprise
We had heard good comments about this restaurant so we thought we would give it a try. So glad we did. Mike was our waiter and we found him to be friendly, polite, and quite concerned that our dining experience was more than we to be. And it was. Excellent food. Try the bread pudding. You'll be back again, and aga ... read more

New management is making an adjustment and doing great. They follow Covid guidelines. Best part is the bartender, Tony, who is super respectful and easy going to talk to. Best place in Hackettstown to get a drink, especially if Tony is there to conversate!

Stopped by Bea McNally's Friday night. Our server was Mike, very attentive, friendly & professional.  Drinks were good & our food served quickly.  Appetizer was potato skins topped with a very flavorful horseradish sauce; next I chose the "Egg Pappardelle with amaretto sauce tossed with pork belly, spinach and peanuts".  This dish is ... read more

Just reopened after minor renovations and ownership change.  Staff new and learning pos system.  Kids mean well but need work on timing and details i.e. app delivery, drink specifications.  We had a pretty good sampling of food and for the most part well cooked.  Kitchen needs to refine flavor / spice pallet for scallops, chef salald ... read more

I was super full. I had a brother come into town and he asked me to go back here. It has a nice interior. Mood here is similar to Fresno's scene.

Very appetizing. I had a brother come into town and asked me to take him back here. This place has a good design.
Javier Richards via - Sep 2, 2020
There was fast, efficient, and courteous service. The place has a good feel to it. Similar to a place in Denver I liked.
Lilly Hunt via - Sep 2, 2020
one of the best spots of its kind in the area. looking forward to coming back with my coworkers. kinda of like a cafe in phoenix that i enjoyed.
marco cole via - Sep 2, 2020
Good place to catch up with friends. I will be back with my relatives. Bring your appetite because portions are generous. Menu is like a place in San Francisco I liked.

Food is decent. Nightlife isn’t too great. The bar area gets overcrowded and there only one person doing security if at all.

Have been to Bea's a handful of times and the food is always good (not OMG great, but good), ambiance is nice, servers are always delightful and the pricing is reasonable. I don't go there for the beers and other drinks, so the fact that it is a pub is not important to me. Bea's is an all round good restaurant.

The wings here are much better than Marley's. The bartenders are very friendly and professional. The food is very good too.

We cane in for a early dinner. When we arrived the hostess/host was not present and my husband had to ask the bartender to seat us after waiting a few minutes. We ordered two of the appetizers, since they offered 1/2 appetizers on Monday. We tried the lucky rolls and empanadas. Both were good. We liked the Irish spin on the egg ... read more

Good atmosphere. They know how to pour a proper Guinness! In my opinion one of the BEST places for baked French Onion soup. It has a sweetness to it, almost like they use vidalia onions. Bavarian pretzel sticks are great as is the fried calamari. Great place to go on a Sunday to catch a game.
Tabitha Keifer via - Jan 2, 2020
One of my favorite spots to eat. fantastic location, well kept, and fantastic customer service. 5 stars!
