We held our daughter's wedding here so we were able to have several meals in the Tap Room as well. The food was excellent as well as the service. We even took advantage of the bar after the rehearsal and after the wedding was over.

The Tap Room at Hotel Bethlehem is a great place to wind down and relax with some great beers and food. The atmosphere and tavern setting has the feel of a European pub and friendly and knowledgeable staff. They are always willing to help and offer suggestions that aim to please. And they will.

Fun place to grab a quick breakfast, lunch or dinner, and an awesome place to have a glass of wine (or 2) while enjoying people watching on Main Street!

The Tap Room provides a wonderful opportunity to have a drink with friends, a great burger and listen to some great music. Jazz is offered every Thursday evening. The service and food are excellent but it's the jazz that keeps us coming back.

Expensive food, nice room but noisy, staff is clearly not motivated and not motivated to make your experience friendly. portions are skimpy and the if you want original food, you should consider another place.
