On 2/16 my wife and I along with 4 other friends had dinner in the Hotel Bethlehem Tap Room before we went to a show at the Sands Casino. We all had "10" dinners.

The Tap Room is a good choice for a good meal. We've been here several times over the past 8 years and would certainly go again. The most recent visit was with friends...the waitstaff was good, the food was good and the ambiance could have been a bit quieter for our taste, but all in all a good experience.

We've started the tradition of a having late-morning Sunday coffee and Bellini's at the bar. Having Jake as the bartender makes the mornings even more enjoyable. Such a personable bartender - he's the type you WANT to have at the bar - makes you feel welcomed, and can carry a good conversation, also. Great work, Jake!

Drinks are great, try the fireside eggnog. Very interesting to gaze at all the pictures of famous people who have visited the Tap Room while you are waiting for your meal.

Visiting friends and family, looking for a festive holiday luncheon, we entered the tavern. drinks were great. Service was pleasant. Having always had great food in this town (Apollo, Jumbars) we were disappointed. Macaroni and cheese was comforting and yummy, but white on white on white, with nary a garnish to be had. Wild mushroom meatloaf was very dry, and... More
