“Awesome Prime Rib”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Took a minute to find this Restaurant as it's tucked way in the center of town down a side street but worth the search. Sat at the bar for their Prime Rib special dinner and got the last piece of the night. I swear everyone in the place was having the prime rib. Cooked perfectly and very inexpensive I thought. Lots of local characters at the bar for entertainment as there was no TV to watch. Very casual place, great bartender. I didn't stay late enough for the music and bar scene to kick into gear.

“Great family-run restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2013

Not only do they have the BEST prime rib (even better than numerous weddings I've attended), but the owners & staff are some of the nicest people I've come across. The food is great, the drinks are strong, & the atmosphere is family-friendly during dining hours.
Late-night, this place is a BLAST! I always make sure that my friends from out-of-town hit up the Funky late-night for a true taste of the local flavor. No trip to Bethel is complete without a stop to the fun fun funky!
Keep up the excellent work Barry & family! You guys are a true staple to the community!

“Fun Fun Funky”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2013

Been there 3x --- it's got two great personalities! On one hand this is an excellent value priced family restaurant in early evening. Best burger in Bethel and prime rib at it's best.
On the other hand the fun starts at nine, with a great DJ, generous drinks, and a live dance floor.
The Funky is actually the only late night place in Bethel.
Note: a little hard to find --- just off Main Street.

“Family friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2013

Very casual and family friendly, The staff was welcoming and attentive. Nothing fancy about the place, which is want we wanted after a 4 hour care ride. We stopped for dinner before checking in at Sunday River. 2 adults, 1 teen, and 1 older kid were all satisfied with our meal and the price was right. The lasagna was homemade and very hearty; the garlic bread was toast, but it was tasty and seemed appropriate for the setting. We left as the live music was setting up. If you drink wine, don't expect a wine list, this is more of a beer kinda place.

“Prime Rib Thursday and Weekend Dancing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2013

Barry the owner and Prime Rib Master on Thursday nights also welcomes you back on Friday and Saturday with a DJ who plays the latest and greatest of todays hip/hop/techno hits. The prime rib dinner is an excellet value for excellent food, is cooked to your request, and reasonably priced (under $10). Drinks are drinks made by one of the best bar tenders ever met. The menu i varied and able to meet the appetite of most omnivore's! Also has lovely billiard tables for those who may want to play a game or two. Warm and inviting come on down to the Funky Red Barn!
