Menu choices were outstanding. Arrived at 5;30 PM Saturday evening and seated immediately. Upon leaving about 7 PM there was a line waiting for tables. I enjoyed a menu special "Chicken Cordon Bleu", very tasty and the house beer paired perfectly.

Fish and chips and seafood platter good. The scallops were a little under cooked. The onion rings were exceptional. Recommend those over the french fries. Service was OK, not the best. Location is close to our hotel, the Hampton Inn.

When we converted our former restaurant, Platz's Inn, to PJ Whelihan's Lehighton, we kept the historic charm, upgraded the technology and added an awesome outdoor deck. The result is a great mix of neighborhood pub charm, with an expanded menu featuring fun daily specials, served by our same friendly staff. What began as a favorite destination pub with Lehighton locals and vacationing travelers, remains the same great place today.
