I thought I would do a review on one of my favorite local hangouts in Bethlehem. My wife and I both members of the Lehigh Valley Cigar Club love The Wooden Match. The food is great and wings are the best in the valley. The cheesesteak special that gets added on occasion is the best cheesesteak I have ever had... More

If you don't enjoy cigars, this isn't for you! If you enjoy a fine cigar and craft brews, you have found the perfect home! They service large portions of pub grub so you won't go away hungry!

If you want the best burger, give this place a try. My favorite place to go for food. As others have said this is a smoking approved place so keep that in mind. They also have a great rotating selection of craft beers on tap along with outdoor seating for the warmer days.

I was a bit disappointed in this venue. We went for lunch. It is an old train station with cool architecture. It was a nice day and we sat outside. It is also a cigar bar, so if you don't like smoke…don't go! We had people around us smoking and if we had moved inside it would have been even... More

The food here is very good, the atmosphere was great, we sat at the outside patio so the smoke from the Cigars was no bother at all, even with a large festival across the street and a large crowd at the restaurant we had no trouble getting a table, and the staff was extremely friendly, I will be there again,...

Great Atmosphere and consistently great live music! The artisan wine bar that just opened completes the package! Start off with a nice glass of wine and cheese plate appetizer (at a great price), and then move over to the wooden match to enjoy dinner and a cigar. Top Notch! New Ownership invested money is some great features (like the spiffy... More

So here's the scoop. Kids couldn't go inside so we sat on the concrete slab under one of the tents. Very noisy with traffic (motorcycles, loud bridge noises as cars passed, etc.). Very annoying insects. Cigar smoke... Pretty view though of the re-purposed train depots (love that) and great beer list. The food is meat-centric. Very very few choices for... More

A great Belgian White beer and a generous glass of Pinot Grigio were spoilt by very average food. Just had snacks but they were very disappointing. Interesting venue and because of the drinks may give it a second chance.

This facility has a beautiful approach as you drive up. It has several tents along the ridge near the railroad tracks showing outdoor dining under Awnings. But once you get to the facility you'll be surprised at how they Operate. As three well-dressed ladies stood waiting for a table,( I reserved one that was called ahead,). we were escorted to... More
