Not impressed with the food at all for the price, especially with so many fine Lehigh Valley establishments out there in a similar price range. Outside atmosphere is a nice touch, but children are not welcome at all. . . and the staff has no problem indicating as much. In the absence of a children's menu, be prepared to be... More

We had plans to go to Leaf in Easton but they were closed. Since we were meeting friends, all of whom were driving pretty far, we wound up finding this place. Great little place to hang out and smoke cigars. I love the converted building and it had a great outdoor area (we couldn't sit outside because it was rainy).... More

Staff was friendly. Food was very good. Enjoyable atmosphere outdoors with band playing. Did not go inside so can't speak to that. Nice spot with some enjoyable options for dinner. Had our two year old son with us. They did not have a problem with us having him but it isn't really a kid-type restaurant. I know they do not... More

My husband and I visited The Wooden Match twice in the last month. The first time I had the JFK Bay Of Pigs Pulled Pork Sandwich. First of all it was not pulled pork. It was a few pices of sliced pork that was very dry. I could hardly find the swiss cheese that was suppose to be on it... More

We've eaten here twice and have really enjoyed it. The staff are friendly and our last two waitresses made wonderful suggestions about what the best dishes to try are. In fact, one even diplomatically steered us away from entrees that 'are not yet our strongest dishes' and emphasized things the chef does very very well. We APPRECIATE this type of... More

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
