You can reserve a table via telephone. The Sun Inn has been located on Main Street in historic Downtown Bethlehem for over 250 years. In 1758, the Moravians... More

A truly unique dining experience in downtown Bethlehem. Where else can you dine in the same restaurant as George Washington John Adams? Add to that beer brewed with the same recipes from Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. Then add food prepared in the culinary style of the Revolutionary war. This place gets 13 stars!

Our bartender was friendly and knowledgeable of the Inn, beverages, and food. We were not able to stay for dinner,... More

They carry local wines and beers which were both good. We then had dinner upstairs. They have several dining rooms upstairs which are very nice and in the colonial style. It added a... More

The atmosphere is colonial times and very well done. The beers and wines are all Pennsylvania which is nice. I had the NY strip and my wife choose the salmon... More

Our dinners were outstanding from the salad to the lobster to the Death by Chocolate dessert. It was a delight to enjoy such a wonderful meal at the beautiful, historic Sun Inn. We... More

I wish only success for this new establishment. We had a wonderful time with terrific food and comfort. Marco was our server and he gave us a bit of a history lesson, as well. It was really a great surprise for us to find this restaurant. Limited menu, but you could certainly find something to please your palate. This is... More

Walls decorated with historic photos and written explanation of important and distinguished visitors and guests that stayed at the Inn in colonial times.
