    Great atmosphere. Tried the sautéed chicken with Demi wine glaze sauce. Nlot what I expected. Sauce was super thin and tasted quite salty... Almost like chicken broth. Waitress was awesome tho.

    My eggs Benedict were BOMB and the beer jam is super cool! The brunch menu is far more adventurous than most places 👍🏼

    This is where the locals come to drink/eat/talk and for good reason. The food is excellent, beer selection is local and the wine list is the longest and best in town. Had the fish tacos last time GR8!

    Brunch is completely amazing. I’ve been coming here for years and years and I’ve never had something that wasn’t special.

    No real munchies on the appetizers list, best for meals rather than happy hour. The scallops are heavy but delicious.

    Beggar's Banquet is a decent choice for a casual date. Get the Brie appetizer, it's delicious.

    I'm proud to be your new mayor of Beggar's Banquet. As your newly elected mayor, I will act with bipartisan humility and seek to improve the experience at this fine institution.

    A nice change from a typical college town bar. Half off wine on Wednesday and dare I say the best food in downtown EL.

    Here is my problem with Beggars: they seem to think their food is worth a lot more than it is. Overall pretty much everything on the menu is about $2-4 dollars overpriced.

    Service and food quality highly vary here. Food often arrives cold, dirty dishes and silverware, slow service even on non-busy day. Not impressed lately. Too bad. Used to be fine dining.

    Make sure to grab a Blackout Stout, brewed by the Great Lakes Brewing Co. I always gotta get one and it's one of my favorite beers.
