I visited the Brass Rail for breakfast. The decor was VERY dated, but the service and the food was excellent. Very reasonable costs for diner style breakfast food.

We are regulars at Brass Rail. This family owned business offers friendly staff, great food and reasonable prices. A fine family restaurant that won't break your budget.

I love their cheese steaks and pierogies. They also have dinners that tend toward the PA dutch food, which are also great. Good appetizers.

The Brass Rail is a well-known place in Allentown, PA. It's a family place with a decent variety of dishes to choose from. For me, the $4.29 Cheesesteak Sandwich is what this place is all about. Add the mildly spicy peppers, maybe some fries and you get a terrific lunch at a bargain price. I tried deviled crab cakes one time. They were ok, not great. For dessert, the chocolate lava cake is worth a try.

Lots of people are regular customers and sometimes there are lines waiting to get in. Breakfast is really good. Atmosphere is okay...nothing to brag about. But they have cleaned up the look in the past few years, so it isn't as dark as it once was. Pricing is higher than a typical diner, but the atmosphere almost compares to a nice diner.
