Good food, great atmosphere!

Who would have thought that you could find a New York City-esque restaurant in downtown Allentown?! This place is great. The atmosphere in the bar area is relaxed and friendly, and there's always a drink special going on. The food is savory and delectable, and it will leave your mouth watering. All... read more

Like my other reviews for Allentown City Center - this place just doesn't quite meet expectations. Service was off - it seemed like the wait staff/host staff had never worked in a restaurant before. Menu was somewhat interesting but didn't quite deliver. It could have been any number of no name restaurants or brew pubs in any mall or casino... More

Went there the day before my half marathon. I ordered the burger and house brewed beer. Very good food. I like the beer a lot.

We visited the Brew Works to take their tour of the brewing process that they have on a Saturday at noon. We made a reservation. The tour started promply at noon but wasn't very long as their brewing facilities are very small. It was very nice, personal and informative. We sat at the bar and were introduced to each of...

We ate there before a hockey game at the nearby arena. We got seated right away but the place quickly got packed with game-goers. I wondered how they handled the crowd but they had plenty of floor staff and our server was attentive. I had the french dip fondue sandwich. It was on a nice roll, had a good amount... More

Stopped in for a meal before checking out a hockey game in the new arena and glad we did. Great selection of beers and food. So many beers sounded good, so I tried the sampler. Excellent way to try 6 craft brews for $10! Food was good and as ordered. Waitress was very polite and helpful. Prices are very reasonable... More

We were seated at our table and given menus but it was quit some time before the waitress came over to get our drink order. At the time we did tell her we needed... More

My friends and I visited the Allentown Brew Works on Hamilton Street not far from the new PPL Center prior to a Lehigh Valley Phantoms Hockey game. The service was very good, the food was presented nicely and was very tasty. The wine was excellent! They brew their own beer here and serve different varieties if beer is your drink... More

The food wasn't anything special. Not what I expected was looking for better choices. A lot better places to eat. Could really be good if they worked on it.
