“Nice Atmosphere Not So Good Burgers”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

This place is really done nice inside. Sampled one of their micro brews it was very nice. Ordered a hamburger with portabello mushroom. It was nothing special at all. I normally wouldn't mention this but it really stuck out that the waitress shirt was dirty. It's too bad the place looks cool, just don't order a burger if your used to eating good ones.

“Delicious, a great surprise!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We stumbled upon this place while trying to find another restaurant. We gave up on looking for that one and ate here for lunch instead, and I'm glad we did!

Our service was impeccable. The beer selection is awesome, there's a lot of variety, and everything on tap looked great. My boyfriend got the porter, which was very good. There's a sampler you can buy for 10 bucks that features 6 generous servings of different house brews.

There's a wide selection of foods, probably something for everyone. Their beer is a key ingredient in a lot of their dishes. They had a number of german-inspired dishes, which was a pleasant surprise. Save room for dessert --the pots de creme au chocolat is DIVINE.

I will definitely eat here again.

“right in the middle of things”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Good food, lots of beer choices including their own, friendly staff. We sat outside right on the street at a key corner of the old town area. Only drawback was the chirping traffic signal every time the light changed.

“Good choice for Monday night.”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

We were in Bethlehem for a Monday overnight. Many other choices were closed on Monday night so we chose the Brew Works. We both really liked the menu and chose to eat inside. We were not disappointed. The service was excellent and we really enjoyed our food. We don't think you can go wrong here.

“Worst service in the Lehigh Valley”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

It took forever for the waitress to come to our table and take our drink order. Then it took equally as long for her to come back and get our food order. When we finally got our food it was sub par, but par for the course for Brew Works. I don't understand why people go to this place. It is loud, the food is usually fair at best and the service is terrible. I don't even know how they stay in business with all of the great restaurants the Lehigh Valley has to offer.
