Despite living in Reading previously, I never visited The Pike Cafe before. During a recent business trip to Reading, a friend recommended Pike. What a pleasant surprise! Convenient parking, clean spacious location, friendly and efficient staff, affordable prices, and best of all: delicious food. Highly recommended.

Pike Cafe may be the best sports bar in Reading. They have TV screens everywhere with the full spectrum of MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL and college football and basketball games -- every package. They are usually very willing to change the channel, assuming it's not an Eagles' game day, and that you ask nicely. They have a full bar and... More

This was one of my favorite restaurants in Reading, Pa. The food is quality but the service has become bad enough to keep me away. Last visit we were served our soup and entrée at the same time. Another visit 5 of use ordered lunch. Soup never served. 4 of 5 entrees came to the table and had to wait... More

Great food...BUT this is not the place if you are very hungry or on a time schedule. Waited, waited for food (nothing special) on our last 2 visits. It actually took 20 min to be served a slice of cake, and that was after giving our waitress a reminder.

Great menu selections. Staff is nice enough but not out of the ordinary. I recommend: wings, salads! We enjoyed trivia night with prizes.

Your first impression upon entering is that this is a very clean sports bar in a marginal neighborhood. A quick scan of the menu shows dishes that are several cuts above the typical bar fare. My reaction as I was exiting was- "Wow, this food was amazing for a little neighborhood sports bar." After several friends recommended this place, I... More

The wings were greasy and over cooked. I thought this would be a fun place. Was here with friends - do not go here with your family - it is a bar in the true sense of the word, get's a little wild. Service was fair at best - hard to get seated and attention while eating. Would have had... More

The Pike has some of the best food in town. I have always loved everything I ever ordered there. Food is fresh and servings are large. Always have weekly specials too as well as great seafood chowder on Fridays. Staff is friendly and makes you feel at home. They take great pride in making this stop great every time.

My husband and I have been enjoying very good food at the Pike for several months now and have not had a bad experience. We go about 5 - 6 pm and there is always a crowd but not crowded. Wait staff are very polite and attentive as well as upbeat. Beer selection is very good and the special entrees... More
