We are located in a beautifully renovated train station that served the Lehigh Valley Railroad since being built in 1904. There are several train cars on the property, serving as dining cars and storage for the restaurant. From a great lunch destination with set daily features to a late night, sports bar feel, you'll be sure to find yourself feeling right at home.

I guess Sunday Nights are not a good night to hit this place. In our party we had to send back a dish because it was too cold, my wife's order was wrong and then there POS systems went down. Had to wait an extra 20 minutes to leave while the cabs waited. Usually a great place to eat and... More

What a great restaurant, close to the hotel and great building. We sat at the bar and had the crab balls, the grilled wings and steak subs. The food was very good and Madison made a mean dirty martini!

We went to this place while on an overnight stopover, and it was an excellent choice! Our server, Holly, was attentive and friendly. The food was amazing! We ordered some appetizers, along with a meal, and couldn't begin to finish everything. It was all so delicious! I would recommend this place!

Family of 6, including grandparents. Beer & wine selections solid. Craft plus mass produced brews. Chips & blue cheese appetizer so good!! Variety of salads, sandwiches, entrees--something for everyone. A little loud, but positively lively. When we visit We like to come here every time! I crave their chips & blue cheese. The only reason no 5 stars is service... More

The food is just average. Many things on the menu sound better that they actually are. You can do worse, but also much better.

The food and service were good. Panko crusted scallops in a basil pesto cream sauce is one of my favorites. Consistently delicious.
