My husband & I had a very late dinner than usual for us. Our reservation was at 8 PM. Our server was excellent. I have been a server in my earlier employment & I very much appreciated Sarah's attention to detail. I enjoyed my fish tacos although my husband was not overly happy with his Reuben sandwich. I'm not sure if he was feeling his best that evening, so I would not say for sure that this menu item was sub-par. Generally the food is very good. The beer selection is sadly not usually the best in our opinion. We especially search out restaurants with local craft beer. We, along with our friends, would seriously be more regular customers if this aspect of the restaurant was improved. There are so many Lehigh Valley breweries & so many excellent brews. It is a couple of weeks into Fall but there were still "summer" selections on the menu. Fegley's in Allentown offers one of the best pumpkin brews around and it always disappointing not to find this on tap at an Allentown pub. One of the evening's highlights was the entertainment by Jackson Howard from the Philly area. He is an accomplished musician, singer and performer as well as a really nice guy.

Half price apps on a Friday night is a great idea!

Sat at the bar. Nice to see the open kitchen and everything made fresh. The lobster roll was overflowing with lobster which was nice to see for the price but could use a bit more flavor. Burgers were cooked to perfection. Martini was a bit small for the price but decent tasting. Service is always welcoming and quick. Never had a bad meal here.

As usual the food was great, service very good, it is a restaurant in a grocery store, but they do a wonderful job, sometimes hard to tell it is in a grocery store, a favourite for a mid week dinner.

Service was the worst I've had in a long time. Gentleman was polite but visited the table to take order and when we were done eating. I had the pork "chop" special, chops are not 1/4" thick, and they were very overcooked. Honey peach glaze lacked flavor. Green beans were properly cooked. Redeeming quality on the dish was the coconut rice, correct texture and flavorful. My wife's lobster roll was lacking flavor and seasoning. I will not be following my two strike rule for this place. No bueno!

Wonderful lobster roll and grilled sprouts and delicious moules! What a treat to find it after a long day in the car en route to Maine! Great cocktail too.

It's a restaurant in a grocery store, you would never know it. Very fresh food, preparation top notch, light fun place, great for a week night dinner without to much flourish. We enjoy this venue very much.

Food was well prepared and fresh. Good selection of wine and beer on tap. Atmosphere is ok, a bit loud but you are at a grocery store. Very convenient if you also must go grocery shopping.

Food was just OK. Thought the burgers were a little small. The Reuben sandwich was good, but a little pricey. Greek salad was good, but very small for the price. Service and ambiance were good, just thought all of the prices were a little on the high side for what we got.

Nice place to eat. Food was good. Service was a little slow even though it went busy. I got a 1/4 lb. burger that was probably 2 oz. after cooking. Ordered desserts as well. Very small portions.

Overpriced! 3 adults 1 child with only drinking water was $125! We had pretzels and wings for appetizer and we ordered 3 desserts. Husband ordered stuffed salmon which was just ok, I ordered chicken wrap which was good and oldest son ordered fish and chips which was a small portion...only 1 piece of fish. I’d definitely go somewhere else for you he price we paid.

Very relaxed atmosphere and food was delicious. Two people had the fish and chips and I had the turkey burger- everything was fresh and perfectly cooked. Service was great too. We also had a round of Brandy Alexander’s - yum

Honestly, the food was ok, but nothing spectacular. The wings were drizzled with our choice of sauce but not doused in it, the way you would expect. Paid $16 for a chicken Caesar salad ( $9 for the Caesar salad and $7 to add a piece of chicken) which is comparable to any of the ones I could get anywhere else for much cheaper. Came here once before and wasn’t pleased. Not sure why I decided to come back. It’s overpriced and not worth it. Learned my lesson.

Crab cakes can't be beat. We come for the crab cakes since other places have too much filler and litttle crab meat.

The meal was awful. It looked as though it should have been served to me on a plastic tray at the local nursing home. The mashed potatoes were the consistency of puréed noodles and appeared even worse. The salmon was over-cooked and sat in a puddle of some questionable cream sauce. The steamed kale was foul. My husband and I will not be returning.

Overpriced and leaves a lot to desired. Ordered 2 salads, a sandwich, fish and chips and two alcoholic drinks and the bill was $60. I don’t mind paying for good food but that was not the case here. French Dip sandwich was tough and not to mention $15. Fish and chips were good. Salads had barely a hint of dressing. Menu is not very appealing. Will not be back.

Our party of 4 was well taken care of! Our server, Melissa, was professional, knowledgeable and fun! Our food was cooked to perfection- fresh ingredients and great sandwiches. The Chefs specials are great- we get excited to see what the Chef has created each week! Thanks for a great dining experience as usual! Definitely recommend.

Food as usual was nicely prepared, had my favorite, a Burger, done just right, a little lean, but the beef had been radiated so it was totally safe, my wife had the salmon, which was also nicely prepared. I wish a number of other places we frequent had the same level of food prep.

Mom and I visited The Pub on a Sunday afternoon a week prior to this Friday night visit. The food and service and ambiance were so good that day we decided to go again. On this particular evening the service was very good, the food was excellent - I had the crab stuffed salmon dinner and mother had the lobster roll. We are from Maine so it's hard to impress us with a lobster roll and The Pub does it right! The atmosphere is warm and cozy - a bit too cozy with some of the tables so close together you really can't have a private conversation. A guitarist played and sang beautifully - we enjoyed his talent. What we didn't enjoy was AC/DC and other hard rock tunes playing way too loud in between sets. I grew up on AC/DC and appreciate rock but it is definitely not suitable as dinner music. We were trying to relax after a long work week. The noise level was the reason we decided not to stay for dessert and a second glass of wine.

The pub at wegmans always delivers. Very nice beet salad with added salmon and the stuffed salmon entree. Good service. A great neighborhood place.
