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! We shared the short rib pierogies...very tasty and the beurre blanc sauce was great! I tried the chilled peach soup... More

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.

Found this place doing a Yelp search while staying at a B&B in the area. What a great find! Gourmet selection of meat and cheeses, food made with local ingredients and what a selection of craft beers (mostly Belgian style) on tap and in the bottle, with a knowledgeable wait staff to help you select something new to try based...

The menu is really interesting and the food was good but when I looked at the prices I thought I was in NYC or Philly. I'm surprised that a place so small and out if the way and not in a big city was as expensive as it was. It's certainly in the wrong $$$ category in trip advisor. They... More

For my money this is probably one of the top 3 restaurants in the area. Not quite Bolete ... and to be fair they're different spots ... but not too far off. This place is all about the beer. There are about 8 draft beers to choose from plus some cask drawn selections, then a list of dozens of bottles.... More

My husband and I went to dinner for the first time last Friday night, upon entering it was one large room w/ a bar and several tables. We went because of the reviews. We ordered several cheeses and meats as a starter, not knowing how much we were going to get, but it was a nice surprise and allowed us... More

The Trapp Door Gastropub Emmaus PA The draft beer selection was short about 8 good beers, leaning toward multiple porters/stout styles and only one IPA. There is an extensive bottle list. Making it a great choice for hopheads and real craft beer lovers. Not a Bud in sight! We ate mostly appetizers: Braised short rib pierogies, with porter cheddar, mushroom... More

Second annual large dinner party at this hole-in-the wall fabulous restaurant. I love that the outside is unassuming. It's a delightful secret - the world opens up inside. Had the best beer ever from their limitless varieties available. The vegetable empanada was one of the best vegetarian entrees ever. Farm to table, too. The only damper on the thrill of... More

I recently went to this restaurant for dinner. There are only around 10 small tables in the restaurant, around a large bar area with bar stools. The restaurant was fairly noisy, with some live music. It was somewhat difficult to converse at times. The menu had one vegetarian choice for an entree, and other interesting choices that we all enjoyed.... More
