The food has always been good whenever I've gotten carry-out.

This is basically a response to Brittany B.

I'm not sure what country you are from, but you are wrong about tipping. Why would you not tip on an alcoholic drink? That's the most ignorant thing I've heard in a long time. Servers and bartenders are paid one half of minimum wage, and every night they have to report their tips, which in turn is reported to the IRS. When payday comes around, if they made MORE than minimum wage over the pay period, it is reflected in their $0 paycheck. Most servers get no paycheck all year, and usually have to pay on April 15.

If you can't afford to tip, or feel that tipping on drinks (again, dumbest thing I've ever heard), or don't want to tip on the sales tax, how about going to Arby's or McDonalds?

I am willing to bet that you don't tip when you get to-go food, either.
Cheap people suck.

Food & Service are Satisfactory. I did, however, find it odd that we were charged for Ranch dipping sauce (50 cents for each little plastic cup) which I think is really petty. I hate when places nickel and dime you! I also think they should learn about how tipping is calculated. I generally leave 20% for good food/service, and 18% for anything less. I had calculated the tip then noticed, at the bottom of the check, pre-calculated tip figures based on 15, 18 and 20%. The figures were different from mine, so I looked at them more carefully. Their calculated tips were based on the total bill (including alcohol and tax). TIPPING IS BASED ON TOTAL FOOD BILL BEFORE TAX IS CALCULATED AND ADDED. ALCOHOL IS NOT TO BE CONSIDERED IN THE BASE AMOUNT ON WHICH A TIP IS TO BE FIGURED. These two tactics (charging for ranch dip, and assuming customers are too stupid to figure out their own tip so it is okay to rip them off) really left a bad taste in my mouth. It will be a long time until I go back to Becks.

My wife and I loved to go to Beck's. It was our favorite place to eat. The food was delicious, plentifull portions and reasonably priced. I don't know why, but for some reason everything changed. Some of our favorite items disappeared from the menu, fewer choices were available, the quality got worse. I ordered beef stroganoff and what I got was a bowl of egg noodles with brown gravy and a glob of sour cream on top. I have had better stroganoff from a frozen dinner. The waitress must have seen the look on my face when she placed it before me because not too long after she left the owner came over and asked if there was a problem. I explained to him what I thought beef stroganoff should look like along with all of the changes we noticed in the menu offering. He apologized without really giving any explanation to my observations and said my meal would be on the house. I tasted my meal and it tasted like it looked, bland. Needless to say I did not finish it and my wife did not finish hers because she had to order something other then what she usually got because it too was no longer on the menu and it wasn't that good. What started out to be a good night quickly turned out to be a big disappointment. We haven't been back since. Nor do we recommend Beck's to friends like we used to in the past.

I cannot disagree more with these reviewers. Becks is mediocre, basically crappier than Applebees or TGI's.For salads and pizza go to Amantes' and for crab cakes go to Salernos and for burgers or wings, go to Buffalo Wings and Beer (very lowbrow, but if you want fancy, skip Baldwin Station and go to DC).

The food is fantastic, the price is great, and the atmosphere is comfortable. Only down side is the waitress'. We never seem to get a great one... Other than that we love it!

Beck's has been good food every time I have been there. Unfortunately, the same can not be said of the service. It seems quite hit or miss based on the waitress, what I would expect if I were going to an Applebees or a Chilis, not from Beck's. C'est La Vis.

This is definitely the best eat-in restaurant that Sykesville has to offer. Very tasty menu, I have yet to be disappointed. I recommend their crab dip, divine! The prices are very fair, casual style dining. Only warnings would be that this place is PACKED Fri & Sat! Go early or plan on waiting at least 35 mins. Great bar selection, and the bar is open until 1am some nights.

I just love their cream of crab soup. The flavors are very delicate and there is lots of crab. They have a lot of other wonderful things on the menu so that the whole family is happy when we eat there.

Just moved to Sykesville and realized there are no good local places for happy hour or just stopping by to watch the game and srink beers. E W Becks is the only place around and has a limited bar at that...it's a nice atmosphere, and love that is now smoke free. The menu offers great selection of bar grub and meals. check the mailers, I've seen coupons every week...

This place has great food and atmosphere. There is a bar area with lots of tv's. There is an area in the back with tables where you can sit and enjoy your meal. The portions are large, try the cheesesteak, and the drinks flow freely. The waitresses are usually nice but sometimes get too busy to properly attend to all the customers. Good prices too.
