Stopped for lunch after a day out in the Christmas city. Was disappointed. Had been here years ago and remembered there was a reason we had not been back since. Food was ok. Brewben sandwich was dry. Cheesesteak was greasy and overcooked. Hamburgers were the best bet, they were a decent size and tasty. Overall ok, but many better options... More

This place years ago was the old Orr's department store as I remember it well as a child. They did a beautiful job turning it into a brew pub. The fermenters along the walls, the paintings of Bethlehem and the atmosphere are just right. There craft beers are very tasty. I had a "always sunny pale ale" and my girl... More

Grabbed dinner here while visiting Lehigh. The beer offerings are ample, with lots of selections hitting all know types. Very good beer. The menu was largely high end bar food but everything was done with a fresh flair. We had a Moroccan chicken flatbread and a chicken filly, both very good. I would try again, this is a reasonably priced... More

Very nouveau type of old fashion brewery. Food is ok .. a bit on the fast food model but very good. Larger selection of food an beverages. Nothing fancy just a cool place to meet up with friends or coworkers.

Went out with a group of friends for dinner, and overall, our experience went well. The drinks were good, not too pricey, 6-7$ for mixed cocktails. Two of us ordered the Buttermilk chicken sandwich, was tasty, but ridiculously spicy! Menu said it came with a honey hot sauce, which ended up being more hot than sweet. Caught us off guard... More

I was excited to come here because the atmosphere was awesome. The waiter was great but seem overwhelmed. The food was not good at all. For an appetizer in order buffalo sauce tenders and it was dry and hard. My husband and I ordered sandwiches and it had no flavor and dry. I was disappointed with the food.

Our server, Jess, was helpful in giving the overview of the beer selection. Gave us ideas on the food selection as well. Mentioned a couple of times that "we don't have that anymore" (then update your menus...). Nice atmosphere, kids had a good time and cleared their plate. Got lots of beer to go. Bathrooms could us a mopping

We were here on a Thursday night with a group on 15. We had made a reservation for this group but when we arrived they had no record of our reservation. Even though the place was not very populated we had to wait 30 minutes for them to get ready for us. Once we were seated our server was not... More

Went for dinner after a visit to Lehigh. Everything we had was great! Brussel Sprout special was really delicious and the Organic Burgers were perfectly done to our varying tastes. All the beers we tasted were great too.

My husband and I have been BBW lovers for several years. We enjoyed dining there with friends and family as they had a vast menu to order from. Within the past year, I heard that they hired new chefs that rewrote the menu. Several of our favorite dishes did not make the cut which was disappointing. Their selection is good-not... More

Accompanying the handcrafted beers brewed right in the restaurant is a full bar specializing in single malt scotches, small batch bourbons, and specialty martinis.
