We love this brunch

The Tap Room brunch always delivers. Creative salads (this week, two gems were golden beets in citrus with pignoli, and quinoa salad with feta and fruit), homemade soup (summer vegetable was herbed and light), baked Brie, cheese board, and big peeled/cleaned shrimp on ice with a wonderfully potent... read more

Ok not great .especially if you're staying at the hotel. Better than pub fare but pretty predictable.Food is well prepared and service is fine. Nothing especially outstanding about this restaurant. Somewhat pricey - there are much better choices nearby like Bolette and Crepes.

The Tap Room continues to provide wonderful food, service and a great music venue as well. On a recent visit with family and friends we enjoyed jazz music with Corinne, Frank, Stephen and Lorenzo. A favorite spot since my wedding reception in 1976, I continue to find the ambience luring as the hotel and restaurant provides it all, great drinks,... More

Went for dinner with my daughter and while the service was good the food was just OK. The onion soup was too salty and the rest of the meal was ok. Does not deserve a great rating.

We went for Brunch on Easter Sunday. They offer a vast selection of everything from appetizers to dessert. There is something for everyone. The Duck Confit was very good, but the oysters were disappointing. The temperature of the food was disappointing. I can't say it was cold, but it certainly wasn't. The food was average, although the price point was... More

This brunch is so luscious, we make it a point to travel from Lancaster once a month! Today, Easter Sunday, the Hotel outdid themselves! Oysters on the half shell, lamb, beef, ham, roast duck with the most delicious glaze, and too many items too numerous to mention. Staff goes out of their way to make your experience perfect!! There's something... More

Been here many times. For the most part just OK hotel food and service during the week. But, but, but, They have the best Sunday brunch in the whole Lehigh Valley. Not cheap, but like the lady from Ruth Chris says, "Come hungry darlin".
