We have a mixed review today of the Trapp Door Gastropub, so bear with me while I scribe... The menu is diverse and eclectic, from sweetbreads to wild boar. The beer list is very, very extensive, but we're not beer drinkers, so I'll skip that. I ordered the pierogies and the skirt steak bolognese flatbread, which were both tasty (and... More

With a very unassuming exterior and modest interior, the Trapp Door is an amazing place with fantastic food and a great selection of craft beers. The menu has very good variety. The Braised short rib pierogies are a great starter. The meat & cheese choices are delicious and can pair very well with the beers. The staff are very friendly... More

With so many restaurants to choose from, you'll make no mistake by including this one on your list to visit in Emmaus. Small, dark, intimate interior belies the huge beer and drink selection and the vastly wonderful menu that should meet any taste. Visited recently on a mid-week evening and found the service and food to be truly outstanding. Hard... More

We were in the Lehigh Valley for a game and checked Tripdadvisor for a good dinner possibility. We stopped in early Saturday, 5ish, and found this place to be rather exceptional. I've been past this place hundreds of times and mistook it for a "hole-in-the-wall" beer joint. It is anything but as we soon found out. Very nice tap selection,... More

This was once one of my favorite places to eat but after taking my wife there for her birthday we'll never return. The mussels tasted like they were in a broth of burnt pork and dishwater (not an exaggeration) , the rubbery scallops had the same taste. My pork was so so, served on top of burnt stuffing. Oddly the... More

We stopped here for dinner with our son, daughter-in-law, and grandsons. Very nice, intimate atmosphere. Superb beer listing. Started with smoked goat cheese fondue and handmade soft pretzels. Wow! Great! ... and our server, Melissa, brought out a 2nd round of pretzel bites. For one of us, dinner was cast iron grilled shrimp - (delicious and perfectly done.) Two of... More

A very local feel to a warm and friendly restaurant. Dark wood and low lighting offer a very warm feeling and the food is outstanding, yes outstanding. Calamari and the "not your kids fries" were very nice. The pate was a little smokey for me but my wife enjoyed it. Then we split the tomato salad and finished with the... More

We eat out a lot so don't tend to hit the same place frequently; It has been about a year since we were to the Trappe door; This time we wanted to try a dinner and we were not disappointed!

Very nice rotating selection of beers, friendly service, tasty food! Great atmosphere: no TVs, live music on many nights, and a friendly mix of people. Perfect for a quick beer, beers and an appetizer, or a full dinner.
