Meat, beer, and music. Three of our favourite things! And Bethel Woods do those things better than the rest!

Join the Bethel Woods team for a night of amazing tunes, fun times, and delicious food.

The menu is a little different, harnessing the simplicity of smoked meat and delicious side dishes. Order a pit meal with house-smoked pastrami brisket, or tackle a full slab of ribs! Or give one of their burgers a go! And in a world of meaty goodness, you’ll even find fantastic vegetarian options like the veggie burger or super hippie bowl!

With over 18 rotating tap beers and cider, you know you’ll have a fun night out at Bethel Woods!

The food selection was affordable and delicious, with good vegetarian options. The kitchen was great about allergies. Nice atmosphere too. Service was lovely, we had a wonderful time.

Brilliant food - we got the deconstructed nachos, fish and chips, and a side of crispy wings - all full of taste and great portion sizes! Staff were super friendly, with our waitress and bar man suppling some great banter. Awesome ambience as well - kind of a wild west/retro cowboy/american diner vibe, and the best set of tunes we've heard in a while!

Arrived before 6 and we were seated in the bar area. Requested a seat in the dining area and was advised there weren't any seats. The dining seats were occupied by people drinking only and were not ordering food. Out of the four main meals only two were available. At 1750 they had run out of steak and chicken gumbo. Very disappointing will not return.

Soooooooo good! The sweet potatoe wedges were the best I’ve had in a long time- so crispy. We got the steak and corn tortillas for main, so well cooked, think we’ll be definitely going back again. Oh and calamari for starter- so bloody tasty!!

Great selection of food, wine and craft beer. The menu is good with standard pub fare as well as burgers (large serving size) with a vege option. The staff were excellent - super friendly and helpful. Good spot for dinner and a drink with friends, or a more casual business group.

$5 drinks from 6.30-7.30 which was a great start to our evening and then the food was fantastic! We ordered sooo much but ate every last thing it was so tasty! Definitely recommend the pulled pork poutine!!!

Good food and friendly staff.

I appreciated the curtesy call with a heads up to the live band playing and the 'could be crazy busy' situation. If I'd been bringing Grandma that would have been vital information! As it was my husband and I enjoyed the chance to feel young again. After a little shuffling of tables they found us a place to sit and we proceeded to enjoy the vibrant rooftop atmosphere with attentive staff, good food and an enjoyable evening. Another great WHG venue and being on First Table makes it even better!

This restaurant appeared to be new to FIRST TABLE but we arrived to find a nice choice of table ready for us . It's a bar - so a bit noisy. Staff very helpful. We would go back again.
