We've always gotten a good meal for the value here. Nice bar, nice wine list, good service, great menu, great food. Never have we been disappointed. Give it a try!

Tis is one of our favorite places to eat. it's a local pub with very good food, drinks and the BEST wine list in the area. There's a lot of regulars and repeat customers since it has quality food & service. Just a great place to try a wine. ask Kenny for his choices, he's extremely knowledgable. Enjoy.

Food portions were smaller than expected for the price. If you get put in the back room the atmosphere is completely different, outdated, not bar like. Food taste and quality was not even average. You can go down the st. to V&S and get better tasting food, or to West Reading and eat at building 24 or Viva for better food. Won't go back. And they should think about getting in the 21st century and having a register instead of adding out 8+ party total by hand!

Wonderful corner bar/restaurant. This reastaurant is very friendly and has a warm & casual atmosphere. You can order just a buger or a really nice dinner. Great wine list and nice wine glasses too!

We've eaten at 201 West several times and have yet to be disappointed on any level. We just came back from a very enjoyable meal. We were a party of six and there wasn't a complaint amongst the group. I ordered the crab cakes, which were very tasty, served with garlic mashed potatoes and snap peas. My wife ordered the Steak Diane. She almost ate her entire meal which is a rarity!
Two of the individuals in our party ordered the NY Strips. One with mushrooms and the other was with a Chesapeake crab sauce. The mushrooms and Chesapeake crab sauce both complimented the steaks very well. The Chesapeake crab sauce had large chunks of crab meat in it.
One individual in our party ordered the chicken and cheese quesadilla but could only eat a small portion of it because she had ordered the French onion soup as an appetizer. But what she did eat she liked and took the rest home to have for the next day.
The last individual ordered the chicken and mango salad, minus the chicken. It was a pretty large portion when they brought it out to the table. It included mango chunks and a mango sauce. She thought it was very tasty and managed to eat the entire meal.
We will definitely be heading back in the near future!
