Bartender was great and talkative. Beer was very good, would have liked to try more. Location is a little sketchy.

Went for a lecture/networking/social in the basement Silk Lounge which they hold on a regular basis with different topics. I dearly love their Hop Explosion brew but am ambivalent about their others. The food was good especially the pretzel sticks with garlic. My wife's salad was OK as was my pull-pork sandwitch. The service was great, though it was for a relatively small group. As we were leaving they were setting up for music and poetry. I plan to go back.

Went For Lunch On A Saturday. The Food Was Great, We Stuck To The Appetizers And Sandwiches. Portions Were Plenty. So I Can't Vouch For The Dinners. I Think For This Type Of Place The Prices Are Good. A Lot Better Value Than Red Robin, Ruby Tuesday and Such Cookie Cutter Restaurants. They Even Have A Pretty Good Menu For Kids, They Were 1/2 Price During Our Visit. The Beer And Martinis Were Great. We will Definitely Visit Again.

Good Good N/A Lousy Lousy
We visited the Allentown Brew Works for the first time on January 19th with some family that was visiting the area. I had heard good reviews from a friend who was recently there so we thought it would be a good place to try.

I called the restaurant about an hour before we arrived and used call ahead seating in case they were busy. When we arrived at 6:45 there was no wait at all. We were promptly taken to our table where our waitress greeted us and took a drink order and an appetizer order. The atmosphere was nice. The dining area is very roomy and dimly lit. I ordered the beer sampler which included the Fegley's Amber Lager, Steelgaarden Wit, Pawn Shop Porter, Apricot Ale, Rude Elf's Reserve and one other Ale that I don't rememeber. My biggest disappointment was that they were out of the Hop Explosion which was the main reason that I chose ABW to begin with. All of the beer that I sampled was flavorful and of decent quality but nothing stood out to me. I have had much better beer from Stoudt's, Boulder Beer, and Sierra Nevada. The sampler was a good experience though and I would recommend trying it if you still go to the ABW after reading this review.

After our first round of drinks our waitress finally came back 20 minutes later to take our dinner order. We ordered another round of drinks at this time too. After another 20 minutes the drinks had still not arrived so we asked the waitress about them and she said, "I'll tell you what happened." Then she looked at her paper order sheet and said "You know what, I see them right here. Let me put them in for you." Another 15 minutes later the drinks finally arrived, still no food.

At 8pm we had been at ABW for 1 hour 15 minutes, still no dinner. We flagged down a manager and he said that he would go and check on our order. Then he came back about 5 minutes later and said that it would be right out. 15 minutes later there was still no sign of our food. 90 minutes had passed at this point, no dinner.

Our party got up and walked out of the restaurant. We left money to cover our drinks and appetizers. The waitress asked us where we were going and we explained the situation to her. I told her the $$ for the drinks/appetizer was on the table. She said, "If there was a problem you should have let me know! I have 3 tables to wait on!" 3 tables! Give me a break! I couldn't believe she even used that as an excuse.

My recommendation is this, if you want to try some different brews, go to the bar, do not sit at a table and do not order dinner. Also, call before you go because the website says there is live entertainment on the weekends and our waitress advised that they do not have that anymore.

Maybe the Bethlehem Brew Works is better, but I doubt I will ever try it based on my experience last night.

Beer is very good. Food is OK, but standard fare. Service is generally poor. Bartenders don't bother checking the whole bar to see who needs a drink. They tend to congregate together and with the customers they seem to be friendly with. If you're not a regular, they don't care.

Waitresses frequently complain about workload. Don't ask for separate checks or you'll hear how tough it is to do.

The management really needs to step up the service if they want new/infrequent customers to become regulars. Otherwise, with a new restauraunt opening soon across the street, they face competition they may not survive.

This is an excellent brewpub. Great beer, terrific food in a well designed space. Walking distance to our hotel.

The Hop Explosion is a hop-head's dream beer. My wife had the Porter which had an awesome roasted flavor with hints of chocolate. I sample the pilsner too. It was very well done.

The food was second to none. Oh yea, they sell logo pint glasses and great T shirts.

Been there 3 times since opening. While not all beers are to my liking, I can find enough to make me come back. I love that both Allentown and Bethlehem brewworks have all copper casks prominantly positioned. They are serious about their beer. Their Steelworkers Oatmeal stout is my favorite. Light in weight, deep in flavor. The Hefeweizen with either lemon or orange is a great refresher. The also have a good bottled beer selection. The staff behind the bar has been very friendly and you can joke around with them readily, which I like to do while waiting for friends. The 3 humus appetizer-I've ordered each visit it is that good. If you like the taste of cumin, their chili-served in a large flatish white bowl/dish, is very good. Downstairs is the Silk loung-very dark clubby feel, which is new to this area. If you are in Bethlehem, visit their Bethlehem Brew Works. This has been in operation for 9 years, and runs very very smoothly. Belgian Steelgaarten downstairs is popular with Lehigh University grad students.
