Fun Atmosphere, great service!

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.

We have been to the Musical Sunday Brunch three times...and it is great. The food is wonderful, the atmosphere beautiful and the staff attentive. It is a very enjoyable experience and look forward to the next time we visit. Always a good way to celebrate a special event.

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. Advice skip the food, the bar and bartenders is actually nice and the prices not highway robbery.

I will be there in a few hours and am expecting a nice time there. I just had to comment on someone who was critical because he ordered wine and another guest at the table was asked to taste it. The reviewer stated they lacked wine etiquette. I can't imagine the horror of such a situation. My God what's next,... More

I came here with my family for Easter brunch and it was AMAZING - The best brunch I have ever been to - I believe it's listed as one of the best in America as well. They had everything you could think of from gourmet waffles and muffins to ahi tuna, duck, and a large selection of great desserts. Since... More

My fiancé and I attended one of the live Jazz nights in this location and we were blown away by how great the band and atmosphere was!! We haven't had many opportunities to have some "us" time, but we found a spot that will help us keep that flame going! I have been all over the Lehigh Valley looking for... More

I invited 3 for a business meeting. Nice atmosphere, although we could not get into the upper tap room with a view. Waitress apparently was not familiar with wine etiquette as I ordered the wine but she asked another gentleman to taste. After ordering the second bottle she was going to pour it in the same glasses without letting me... More
