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.

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!

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.

Stopped in on a Sunday. Out of the only beer I wanted. Ordered two pizzas. Cheese and bbq brisket. Both were good. Service was good. Nothing was out of this world but it was a nice place with good food. Would consider stopping again.

A classier alternative to OIP. Love the ambiance of the train station. Always enjoy wide spaces and lofted ceilings. Upon entrance, there is a partially open kitchen to view pizza being tossed high by the Artisan's hands. Nicely trained staff. Food is delicious, especially the homemade bread their cheesesteaks are served on.

Excellent Pizza and the grilled chicken wings are delicious. Located in an old rail road station it it spacious and comfortable. The food is overall very good. I eat here frequently and also take home often. Hungry don’t be shy this is a safe bet any day of the week.
