I haven't been to Third and Spruce in awhile and not sure I will go back anytime soon. My husband and I were in the neighborhood and I suggested going there for dinner.

Moderately priced, American menu (and oysters) with local sports bar ambiance and super service. Everything was great ... and ample parking was directly across the street. This place is truly one of Reading's gems ... on the West Reading side of the river.

If you love oysters, this is the place! Every Tuesday evening is buck a shuck! Choice of 5 or 6 different fresh oysters. Definitely delicious. Recommend making a reservation on Tuesdays.

My husband loved the beer, and the place was hopping but wasn't loud. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There is a parking lot across the street for easy access, and in... More

While working in Reading, PA, I was introduced to a local spot near my hotel that became my regular dining and partying spot. Third & Spruce. This place is just big enough to enjoy the ambiance inside and if good weather, eat on the patio. They have great burgers, steaks, pasta and I especially loved the weekly Oyster specials. I... More

One of the best local bars and restaurants! Great food and staff who know you by name if you are a local and visit frequently! We are here at least once or twice a week. Large bar. Also private room and loft available for private parties and dinners.

The place was empty from the reg. lunch crowd so we have real personalized service, great place for a late lunch try it. Food good, service great, drinks cold, we laughed.
