Description: It is the desire of 1741 on the Terrace to engage you and invite you. Try something new or revisit something familiar but above all -- enjoy. Relax in the ambiance of the room – the beautiful Moravian tile floor and soaring Palladian windows. Admire the charming downtown of Bethlehem with buildings and history dating back to the day in 1741 when the town itself was founded.The wine list - developed to inspire not to impress – is filled with wines from around the world, but with a focus on American wines. Frequent diners at finer restaurants will be impressed with the selection of wines available, but the list has been crafted to make the choices easy for a novice as well. Our sommelier is available to aid wine selection or custom pairings for any menu items upon request.

Had another great meal here last evening for my birthday, this is one of our go-to places for special occasions. We had a dozen oysters, lobster bisque - both excellent. Our dinners were the strip steak and pan seared trout - again, excellent. Portions are good and the side veggies are prepared perfectly. They have great seasonal specials and a... More

After dinner in another restaurant, Carmen and I stopped in for a drink and to look around. After numerous bad experiences I wasn't there to engage, it was to get a drink and run. Carmen ended up in a conversation with the hostess of the 1741 room. I refused to engage as that I wanted nothing to do with it.... More

The Bethlehem Hotel was built in the era of grand old hotels a hundred years ago when industry was booming, lived a long life and then was refurbished and modernized a few years ago. It still has the old-style elegance, but has an overlay of modernity and efficiency. I have not stayed there, but go for dinner from time to... More

$30 per person. When you make a reservation, be sure to ask to be seated on the Terrace. Overflow seating is in the Tap room, which is not as nice. The brunch features all of the best standards: omelet station, carving station, steamed shrimp, etc.

We celebrated two anniversaries and 6 of us stayed at the Hotel Bethlehem and purchased their Romance package. We had a great time. The rooms were very nice and clean, the hotel itself is beautiful and friendly. We had champagne(not expensive but good) and chocolate covered strawberrries upon checking into our rooms. It also included our breakfast which, although, standard... More

I took my father here for Father's Day. What a good choice. Our server was funny and friendly. The food was AMAZING, and the desert was out of this world. Views from the restaurant and hotel are beautiful. Highly recommended for families or couples!

Ate here during Bethlehem Restaurant Week. Meals and drinks were excellent. Beautiful seating area with large windows overlooking Main Street Bethlehem. Service was a little on the slow the side, dinner was over 2 hours. Somewhat pricey, but great choice if traveling through the area and staying at the hotel.
