3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2014 NEW

Over priced appetizers, mediocre food, and really not all that great of beer. Yard of Ale on main street in Stroudsburg is far better, nicer atmosphere, friendlier staff, a larger beer selection, and better prices. Just all around a mediocre experience. Also my 18 dollar scotch had a chunk of something floating in it. Really? Come on now!

This was my fourth time to the Bethlehem Brew Works. I keep thinking I'll find a food appetizer or entree. I never did. The food is hugely mediocre. As for the beer, some is pretty tasty, The one I like the most, bourbon barrel brewed, is almost always unavailable. And that was my list time to the Brew Works.

Hummus plate was bland. The pita bread was underbaked and doughy with paprika thrown all over it. The olive scoop hadn't flavor. The chopped Brussels sprout salad had way too much red onion. The waitress offered tortilla chips in place of the bread and another sever brought out chips that were crumbs from the bottom of the bag. I couldn't... More

We were in the area for a figure skating competition last Saturday and stopped here for a late lunch between my daughter's events. The restaurant is in a nice location but there is limited parking. The atmosphere is casual and family friendly at least during the day. It's near a college and I was told by a local that it... More

A great place. Have the 5 beer sampler to get the true taste of variety brewed right here. The food is fantastic, well priced. Nothing to dislike about this place.

We love downtown Bethlehem and always stop when we go to the Sands casino for a mini-get-a-way. Never had a bad meal or a beer we didn't love. The boom boom shrimp are awesome - spicy but delicious and the burgers are great.

I have a good understanding of beer and while I have had some good beers here,I have yet to have a great beer here yet. Excellent location, walking distance from many other restaurants in downtown Bethlehem. Food is just ok and I feel overpriced. I would much prefer to eat at one of the close upscale places and have a... More

I have been a mug club member since the day it started. I keep going back to the BBW for the good food, great beer, and a helpful, friendly staff.

Very Loud, but expected. Service poor. Their famous fries came out cold and after the third try we left. My chicken sandwich was good thats why I gave this place average on the food.

It is a pub and usually I don't go to pubs but here it is different, the food is very nice, organic options and sustainable food in a brewery, can you believe it? The beer is excellent and they have a great selection. Try their fries, not the handcut but their "city fries", they taste yummy. Also try the calamari... More
