The food is always consistent. Good burgers and apps. Wait staff is good, but slow at times. I had the Bangin Bacon Stack burger. Very tasty and juicy. Only issue I have is if you want to eat outside there is no hostess upstairs. You...More

This was our first visit. This very large building offers 2 levels for dining plus a traditional bar. We ate outside on the large, covered deck. This outdoor area also has a full bar, many tables, big screens and a fireplace (not your usual deck!)....More

PJ Whelihans-formerly Platz's, has been a trusted go to for years. With consistent food and service, it's a trusted standby whenever I'm in the area. Try the buffalo shrimp; it's delicious!

This has become our favorite spot to visit on Saturday night. We love to get a mix of appetizers and drinks, though the food off the menu is great too. Huge selection, great bar area, awesome service. Definitely recommend!!!

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.
