Good Cocktails

Cocktails are great! Always something new and interesting. The food is not our style so we just come for the drinks!

The ambiance is gracious and classy, and the service impeccable. Unfortunately, there is only a single entree offering for vegetarians, and it hasn't changed for four years as far as I can tell. The menu is reliable, but needs some spark.

We enjoyed sitting cafe-style in the open air at The Loft for dinner. We had an attentive server (thanks, Mandi) and perfectly prepared grouper entree specials, preceded by a shared Grille 3501 salad. When the whole experience is so positive you have to tip your hat to management as well as to urge others to also enjoy dining at 3501.

Haven't been here since the remodel and new menu. Had the Bay scallop appetizer and grilled shrimp salad. The appetizer was outstanding, very rich, creamy and just enough. The salad was a nice size and the shrimp were truly grilled and nicely flavored. Only 4 shrimp. Could have added another or two. Would love to see them offer an Oregon... More

We decided to stop by the loft bar area on a thursday a little before 4:00 for some drinks. We had to wait Ten minutes for our server to come over with menus, and then for her to reappear to take our order. Then about fifteen minutes for our drinks. I got a specialty martini and my husband got a... More

The food was good and the place, particularly the bar, have a very lively vibe to them. However, our table service was exceptionally slow. An hour after being seated on a busy Friday night, all we had was water and a bar cocktail. The same problem for the tables around us. It made for a long evening. Portions are nice... More

Visited during and event where they were passing appetizers....they failed to impress me....was wondering if they were even house made. Scallops were smelly and couldn't even bring myself to trying one. I guess my impression began when I waited at the bar for 15 mins...(yes..they were very busy) But the topper was when the woman next to me just stepped... More

Grille 3501 has proved to be a consistently excellent local restaurant. It has a varied menu with lots of options. Dining room is a little loud but this is more than made up by the quality of the food. Even with the expansion of the downtown, this restaurant remains a favorite.

Grille 3501 flourished in an unlikely location after completely remodeling the old Trinkle's Cetronia Hotel. Others have remade some of the old PA Dutch "hotels" in the Lehigh Valley, Grill 3501 is the finest remake of them all. The food, the food, the food with an innovative menu that includes some old favorites (mussels appetizer) is the reason for 3501's... More
