Good assortment of local and craft brews, often seasonal. Food is starchy menu typical of beer hall. Service was acceptable, but slightly slow, if on time constraints. Location is in area becoming gentrified, so it is an anchoring spot to meet friends. Parking is a block or two away. Ownership is community involved and responsible. A definite place to try... More

The Brew Works is a spacious brew pub with an excellent menu of carefully prepared food. A perfect place for a casual night out with family and friends. Beer lovers will enjoy the local product, but the place is just fine for families. An excellent casual restaurant with reasonable prices. It is always good value.

Went to brew works with the family last nite. Started with the pretzels and the boom boom shrimp, which was all enjoyed. I had a salad for dinner which was huge, and all the ingredients were presented separately which was cool!

Went to the Brew Works based on a recommendation. We were in town to visit a family member at a local college. Brew Works was an unexpected surprise. Did not partake in their selection of beers but totally enjoyed their pulled pork sandwich. The fries were divine! The restaurant was clean, as was the rest rooms. The location looks like... More

The Allentown Brewworks is a frequent stop for us when we have family or friends visit. The food is always delicious and they often have different bar specials that we take advantage of. I have also visited for a few theme nights. A portion of the proceeds from certain themed meals goes to that charity organization. It's great to see... More

We were in Allentown last summer and ate here 3 times. It was just that good - we didn't want to go anywhere else! Everything, and I mean **everything** we ordered was delicious. Friendly atmosphere. Tasty beer. Fantastic food!!!!! I'm just sad we won't be back to Allentown anytime soon. But we will definitely come back to eat the first... More

Poor quality overall; salmon was not edible, and indifferent management and owners. So dissatisfied that I threw out a gift card rather than go there again

The Allentown branch of this microbrewery consistently delivers good value. The food is great quality, nicely done. totally recommend the Ale-Cheese Soup. i do not care for soup and get it every time I am there. it makes a beautiful sandwich dip! The drinks menu, outside of their beers, is good. Their beer is very good. I have had mixed... More

You can eat wraps or maybe burgers here, but I would think that is it. The way the cook serve a dinner on a plate is not good looking. And the taste is like a cafeteria. But the people are nice. Decor ok.
