Description: Welcome to the Alburtis Tavern and LodgeFor over a century, the borough of Alburtis has been known as the hidden gem of Lehigh County. The 2,300 residents, who call the one-square mile home, embrace the future while cherishing the history marked by 100 years of progress; progress which stemmed from the influx of business and factories into the sleepy town.In 1913, as with so many communities across the United States, the expansion of Alburtis was sparked by the arrival of the railroads. And, at the core of the Borough, situated adjacent to the railroad, was the American House.The American House was built in 1860, destroyed by fire in 1895 and rebuilt out of brick in 1895. For many years it was a popular stop for train conductors and employees. Of the four hotels that were in Alburtis at one time, it is the only one that still remains. Now renamed The Alburtis Tavern and Lodge it is located at the corner of Front and Main Streets. This landmark of the community has been revitalized to its glory days by proprietors, Hope and Terry Bender. The Alburtis Tavern boasts 12 updated, state-of-the-art rooms for travelers as well as a restaurant for the community. Come see what everybody is talking about

This place sits on the corner of and intersection where a train will run by often. Inside the decor is all about trains! Great pub food with normal pricing. Our server was EXCELLENT and very attentive. I'd go back bur would order something else with less grease. PUb food is greasy.

This was a great find in Alburtis. Our food was delicious and the server was very attentive. We ate lunch here and started with a huge basket of onion rings (probably could have fed 6 people as appetizers). The burgers are flame broiled and juicy and have a wonderful grilled flavor. I ordered the Hobo burger loaded with muenster cheese, grilled onions and mushrooms $10. My husband got the Bleu burger with bacon and bleu cheese $11. Both came with fresh lettuce, tomato and onion on a fresh bun. Try the waffle fries and you won't be disappointed. We left with 2 to-go boxes and can't wait to go back to try their dinner menu options too. Check out their website for their events which look like fun.

Excellent Service. Tried different items. Had the buffalo chicken wrap. My husband had the crab cakes. Lots of crabmeat very little breading. We enjoy going there at least once a month. Tried wing night last month and they were good. Several choices for hot sauces and dips.

With a few friends, we wanted to grab some dinner and I really wanted dessert. I got the chicken and waffles which was REALLY good, followed by the chocolate chip cookie with ice cream which was even better! Not giving the tavern 5 stars because the service wasn't terrible, but also wasn't top notch. Took her two trips past our table to remember to grab refills, and then also tried to convince me to get the brownie instead of cookie because it would have been quicker. There was no dessert menu, so she had to rattle it off the top of her head. The atmosphere is very relaxing, looked like outdoor seating was nice- just too hot for us to try it out.

The food was great, and our server was the best. I had a double grilled cheese sandwich with a burger in the center. Of course it was so big that it had to be cut and I took some home
