Always a great place to let down your hair & have a nice time, at any age. Owners serve & keep up great service & always-friendly conversation. Special requests? Just tell them & happy to oblige! Especially great for New Year's pork & sauerkraut, and always a place you can take anyone year 'round, and count on nice crowd & good food & drink!!

Raunchy, try Pig Pen's, Pitcher's or Mezza Luna instead!!!

Have to set the record straight, I know the place since they only served in the cellar (read since the 1960's) and only sold chips and pretzels along with the beer.

The other well meaning comments hark back to a much better, earlier time in the history of this place. Today, it's honestly hit or miss with your experience at this place.

A formerly great place founded by former owner, Donald Stahley, Sr. (who made himself a respected person within the community, as well as a millionaire by providing outstanding customer service in this establishment.)

The place has since been taken over by his children and their children and so on. They all grew up working there and save one, their attitudes really show it. They're solely in it for the money and the "prestige" they think it comes with.

Reliable-source rumor has it they want to sell and people who knew the place "back in the day" understand why, read on.

The first in the area to call themselves a "Sports Bar". Fact is (by chefs and old customers alike), it's not anywhere close to the real definition of the phrase.

Not unless you consider nearly wall to wall TV's, a few sports themed neon lights and beer advertisements a sports bar. Nothing about their two old pool tables makes it any different than its former theme, a country western bar.

As in its country western days, these days it's all about cheap food and beer, but other than the clams, you could do better by buying frozen at the supermarket. Trashy people, informal service and Daryl, the bar manager (Don Sr.'s youngest) is a jerk. He's gotta be up there with the lousiest bartenders and bar managers in the state.

If you haven't already gotten the picture, the place is NEPOTISTIC to the hilt and if you're not family, they tend to play favorites. Some feel it's still very much a redneck bar, but you'll find much cultural diversity within the place. Perhaps too much.

If you're road tripping it, it's a great place to take screaming, rambunctious, unruly kids. Should they dump their drink and/or throw all their spaghetti all around, you'll hardly notice with all the calamity that goes on in there nightly. Though I'd recommend a better time to take children is before about 4 p.m., after that it's one huge "Happy Hour" until about 10:30 or 11:30 p.m. Everyone knows, once the kitchen closes for the night, with a personality like Daryl behind the bar, the place becomes a ghost town.

Otherwise, if a true sports theme is what you're after, try Pitcher's. Or, try Pig Pen's for daytime entertainment of children or drinking age nightlife, underage are removed by 10:30 or 11 p.m.. Mezza Luna has better food and atmosphere and is also sporty and musical.

They all may cost a little more, but at least you're treated in a friendly manner, while experiencing far better food and atmosphere at each.

Like this raunchy dump, they're all non-smoking too.

I grew up in the Valley and moved away nearly 20 years ago. I had fond memories of the "Black Diamond" steak and finally found myself back in Allentown in 2008. The steak, the service and the atmosphere was everything I remembered and then some. You won't find 50 microbrews or 30 imports...last time I looked you don't need a brew made from tibetan hops and nicaraguan barley to enjoy a good, American steak. Go cry in your Starbucks, you big baby! Go in, get whatever American lager is on tap, get a great steak, clams or whatever, enjoy the H*LL out of yourself, and remember to have a designated driver!

WTF? I can get Sam Adams in any airport in the US. Not what I would call a beer bar worth mentioning. The food was atrocious but the service was good considering the busy dinning room.

I live in San Diego but have family in Allentown area. Stahley's is always the first place we come to to get something to eat! My kids, ages 7 & 10, look forward to steak sandwiches and clams and talk about it for weeks before we're there! And you can't beat the price. We love this place!!

Stahley's is awesome. You can get dinner for two and get ripped for like $20. Nothing exotic in the beer department, but if you are a discriminating light beer drinker (whatever that means), they had 5 different kinds of light beer on tap last time I was there. Everything is cheap, a bunch of TVs, good cheesesteaks and clams, good characters. Enjoy!

opens for breakfast to cater to the night shift group. friendly atmosphere with a family theme. not a whole lotta choices in the beer department but this isn't meant to be a "trendy" bar. definitely worth a stop for an inexpensive good time.

Stopped in today at 4 pm on a Tuesday. Wide range of ages there. Some grey panthers. A couple cute young females at the bar, some young blades at the pool tables. Single old guys at the bar.

Very "family" style. Sumo wrestling on TV.

Barmaid was about 60 years old. Friendly. I had a 12 oz draft of Yuengling for $1.25. There are booths for dining.

I finished my Ying, left a 50 cent tip and bolted. Nice place, really, nice people. Just not MY kind of place. Well, I'll let you know next time for sure.

This place is a dump! When in town and in search of an inexpensive night out, check out Jellybeans Southside Jam, less than 5 minutes from this sewer. Unless, of course, you prefer dining with cockroaches and silverfish.

Stahley's has been around nearly as long as Allentown. A sports bar theme. Large,smokey,and crowded. Stick to the sandwiches. The menu is one of the largest I can recall. The sevice is fast and beer selection is limited to mostly your common varieties. Price is the best part. Cheap
