My wife and I are locals to the area with a lot of dining choices. Grumpy's is our go-to bar and restaurant for an ice cold beer(or 2) and amazing BBQ. Grumpy's is a cozy joint with a flair for casual comfort food. Sit at the bar and Val will show you how true hospitality in the Lehigh Valley is... More

We usually sit at the bar and, while we are not there that frequently, the bartender always remembers what we drink. the Taps are limited but fresh and they have a good bottle selection. This is not a vegetarian restaurant. They do have meat free options but if you're offended by bones, don't dine here. My husband always gets a... More

First time at Grumpy's and the food was great. The smoked wings were excellent and also the pulled pork was all great. Prices are decent and the service was good. Great place with relaxed atmosphere . Would return and try another item on the menu.

We go to Grumpy often, and have since they opened love the ribs, beans and slaw. The gumbo and jambalaya are outstanding, and do try the gator bites. This is a great local place

first time at Grumpys because I heard good reviews. Our dinner was nothing great. French dip was a lot of bread and over cooked meat and onions and dilute au jus. My husbands sandwich wasn't any better. Atmosphere is rundown and rustic. Whole place could use a facelift! Wasn't difficult to pick out Grumpy.

We traveled far to visit Grumpy's based on a co-workers suggestion. We were not disappointed. Food was perfectly seasoned and portions were more than generous. We sat at the bar and had a great time with Lisa. She made the best suggestions for our first time. Can't wait to digest, come back and sample more offerings!

Visited at the recommendation of a friend. We were apprehensive when we stepped up onto the run down porch. The inside is quaint and has lots of history in it's decor. Our waitress as really sweet and recommended many dishes to help with our dinner choices. Excellent barbecue and great portions.

When we first pulled up, we were not sure if the place would be appropriate for the kids. The outside looks a little run down, and it has a dive/biker bar look to it. But we decided to give it a shot anyway, since we were starving, and were glad we did. The staff was very friendly, and they do... More
