What a great surpirse!

This place has some awesome entrees! I was not expecting such a variety on the menu. This place has way more than bar fare so do not be fooled! The Parking area is a plus as well. This place gets crowded but it is worth the wait. The Draft Beer selection is pretty large so it if you forget... read more

First time customer. Parking lot across the street. Bigger inside than appears outside. Friendly bartenders and neat bar. Dining area fairly plain. Lots of tv screens tho; great for viewing any sports. I was with a group of ten and the Pike was nice to do separate checks for all us couples. Usual food selection for the area for the... More

Our closeness to this world famous cafe makes our return visits just as memorable as previous. The bar staff is good. The menu themes are quite unique and fun. The food is first class and abundant.

We had great food- wings/salad. Definitely skip the nachos, they are terrible. Drink/food rices are reasonable, definitely not cheap, which you might expect for the location. Our server Gary, was great. We really liked the well lit parking lot and the motorcycle parking.

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
