Looking for a lighter dinner, we chose the Tavern Room. We were not disappointed. A varied menu with something for everyone. I had the seafood cobb salad which was delicious and the best Manhattan ever! So many photographs of famous people who had been there kept us bust while we waited for our food. A very relaxing and enjoyable meal!

Went to lunch and was pleased although the menu seemed limited. The seafood chowder was excellent as was the tomato/basil soup. Not as happy with the mahi-mahi which was dry and small. Service was ok, not great. The PennState ice cream parlor next door serves great ice cream for your dessert!!

My inlaws were in town for their first visit so we took them to see downtown Bethlehem. We walked around a bit before deciding on getting a bite to eat in The Tap Room at Hotel Bethlehem. It is such a nice Hotel and the tap room has a great vibe. We all enjoyed our meals.

We enjoyed the atmosphere, live music, professional service and delicious food! It was a perfect place to relax in an elegant casual setting. Very reasonable prices and a good selection of food choices. They were very accommodating with making changes on my meal so it would be gluten free. We look forward to dining here again.
